Banana Coffee Cake

The grocery store in my neighbor was holding closing event, so the whole store was on big sale. I’m more like tea person so I don’t drink coffee that much, say, like a cup in once a month, but when I found instant coffee on such a big sale, it joined my shopping basket. While it is true that I don’t drink coffee that much, I love coffee smell. The smoky bitter aroma is such a dreaming smell, so I was going to smell it and let my dinner buddy drink it for me.


When I bring it back to home and turned around, my mind caught what my eyes were avoiding.

A bunch of overripe banana.


I knew I needed to eat it as soon as possible, but my mind was saying “banana…again? For sure? Maybe it can wait till tomorrow…” and here they were, the number of overripe banana increased but never decreased.


While I really concern with food waste, but that day, my mind was full of energy so it worked super efficiently, just put them together!


A little bitter but sweet banana cake gave nice relaxing afternoon, so if your eyes caught the same picture of overripe banana, let’s cook it!

Cheese and Bean Quesadilla

Hello all, it’s first day of June! TIME. FLIES!


When I was in LA, there are at least 2 Mexican food restaurant in a block. Spiced meat and a variety of condiments always made me excited, and I had to spend at least 10 minutes to decide which salsa I should choose to boost up the taste of delicious food.


Now, I live in far north and hardly find authentic Mexican food. It sometimes make me sad, but I should think it’s time to start making Mexican food at home!


As long as we challenge making tasty salsa, you’ll be fine because Mexican food, especially quesadilla is easy to make!


Let’s try now! (Here is my 10 cents, but while you cook Mexican food, you should choose mariachi to boost up atmosphere of being in Mexican food restaurant! )
