Tiger bread 老虎面包

I have been trying making this tiger bread for few months ago. But I couldn't achieve the nice crack effect, and almost wanted to drop the idea of making this bread. Until recently I found a cookbook that has this recipe, immediately try it out and great to see the nice effect.

Plain Bagel 原味貝果

Sandwich is the most common breakfast during our trip to Chicago and New York. Their sandwich usually use baguette, English muffin or bagels and stuffed with ham, egg, cheese and etc. This is not the first time I made bagel, the first bagel I made was added with potato. This time I tried a new recipe and just made plain type of bagel.

Whole Tomato Rice 整个番茄饭

I didn't know this popular Whole tomato rice until I read an article that published in a Chinese newspaper recently. Soon I returned from US trip, I immediately cooked this tomato rice since I was still recovering from jet lag, so this easy recipe just come in perfect timing. At the same time, I can also try out the new Le Creuset round French oven that I brought back from NYC.
