Homemade Naan

I remember the first time I tried Indian food. I fell in love with the naan bread we ordered. The soft, fluffy pancake shaped bread reminded me a lot of chinese breads like green onion/scallion pancakes.

Whenever I go out to eat Indian food, I look forward to ordering naan bread to help soak up any curry dishes we order.  I love how the bread puffs up and bubbles at certain spots. It looks thin and frail, but manages to be soft and chewy and fluffy.

I’ve seen endless amount of cake truffles on other food blogs but I’ve never made them myself until now.

I don’t know why I didn’t think to make them sooner. They are cute, bite sized, you can mix and match flavors, decorations, etc. They are a little too sweet for my personal tastes, but then I don’t really like frosting and these cake truffles use frosting to bind the cake together.

For my first attempt, I made chocolate cake balls dipped in white chocolate and then drizzled with some bittersweet chocolate. I have a few more ideas for designs next time which hopefully I’ll be sharing soon.

I made sugar turtle cookies a few weeks ago. I wasn’t quite satisfied with how they came out so I decided to try again. I’m not sure which design I like better. You can view my previous attempt here. This one was easier to make though since the shell is just one color.
