A few weeks ago I made some Brazilian cheese puffs, also known as Pão de Queijo. I commented that while they tasted great, they didn’t seem to follow the recipes of the ones I’ve eaten because the recipe I used was a liquid batter that required the balls to be made in mini muffin cups, whereas the ones I’ve seen are usually round balls.

I got quite a few responses, suggestions and recipes for the type of bread balls I was looking for. Horray for the internet.

Bubble Buns

I love bubble breads. I like that they pull apart into small pieces and I like the bubble top shape. I saw several recipes for bubble buns right before Easter and decided to try one of them out.


Before my friends came to visit this weekend, I asked them what they were in the mood to eat. I got a vague response of “noodles.” When asked to elaborate, I got “some sort of asian noodles.”

So I decided to take them to Luong Hai Ky which has a menu full of noodles.  Luong Hai Ky is a vietnamese restaurant specializing in chinese/vietnamese style noodle dishes. Most of the noodle dishes use either egg or rice noodles and the majority of the menu is made up of noodles soups and some stir fried noodle dishes.
