Rainbow Bread | http://www.urmajestysire.wordpress.com | All rights reserved

The ‘rainbow look’ became a trend since late 2014 with the comeback of the ‘birthday cake’ flavor. Then in April this year, the ‘rainbow bagels’ have been all the rage, a staple in Williamsburg, Brooklyn by Scott Rossillo for over 20 years. In the Philippines, the 1st place to offer the rainbow bagel is Century Park Hotel Manila. So please do check it out. Coincidentally, that has reminded me to post this ‘experiment’ after 3 months hehe!

I have slightly experimented last May because my birthday was coming up. So here’s an ice cream bread recipe and my rainbow loaf recipe with a lazy err, quick technique. Enjoy!

UrMajestySiresFoodExperiments: Cooking the trend called ‘Garlic Butter Shrimps’ plus tips!

GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMPS | http://www.urmajestysire.wordpress.com | All rights reserved

My absolute favorite since I was a kid (and learned that I am not allergic to seafood), is shrimps! Sauteed, grilled, Sinigang, etc. super love it!

Well there’s been a proliferation of shrimp ‘bags’ or shrimp ‘bucket’ food establishments in Manila these days and after trying a few, IMHO, its still better if you cook it yourself. Its economical and fun to share with family and friends plus the bragging rights that you know how to cook the trend, right?

What’s the difference with this recipe or with the restaurant recipes you might ask. The recipe here is the basic procedure but the added herbs combo and techniques makes a big difference. Oh and what matters most, do not over cook the shrimps!

Garlic Butter Shrimps

Ingredients:
shrimps
olive oil
butter
garlic, minced
salt & pepper
cayenne powder
paprika powder
spring onions, minced
juice of fresh lemon

Procedure:
– Clean the shrimps (keeping the head) by washing over running water; if you prefer, you may shell and de-vein the shrimps and/or remove the heads Continue reading “UrMajestySiresFoodExperiments: Cooking the trend called ‘Garlic Butter Shrimps’ plus tips!”

The latest food trend, for desserts that is, is the ‘Raindrop Cake’ also known as ‘Dew Cake.’

Its a take on the Japanese ‘Mizu Shingen Mochi’ and there’s no traditional cake ingredients in it, just mineral water and agar-agar (a gelling agent made from a mixture of several different carbohydrates extracted from seaweed).

The original flavor is served with sesame powder, ‘kinako’ (roasted soy bean flour) and ‘kuromitsu’ (Japanese sugar syrup, literally means ‘black honey’ that is similar to molasses)
