Fluffy Pancake Recipe (Make 8)

I have been trying to figure out how to make fluffy pancake for a long time. Saw this method on TV from American Test Kitchen and Iron Chef Michael Symon from the Chew, so I decided to give it another try. This recipe requires to separate the eggs into whites and yolks, whisk the whites and fold it in at the end. Sound like should be more fluffy, however, when I used it  to make the Hong Kong style egg waffles, I didn’t notice enough different, so I decided not to bother with the extra step. After created 2 okay pancake recipes, I made up 2 other recipes today and one of them using this whisk egg whites method. To my surprise, the pancakes came out really fluffy and soft, much different than the other one. (Compare photos at the very bottom of this post if you are interested)

Easy French Onion Soup Recipe (3 ingredients in 30 minutes)

I tried French onion soup once in a chain restaurant 7 years ago, that was the first time and last time for me. Since that bad experience, I told my husband this soup would never make it in my kitchen. One day out of nowhere, my husband had this soup in mind and requested it for dinner. So much for the “never” like many things, I made this super easy and crazy good French onion soup to go with a spring mix salad. It was a hit and changed my opinion of French Onion Soup forever. My daughters loved it so much, they asked me to make this soup just a few day later. This healthy and yummy soup need 3 ingredients only and take less than 30 minutes from scratch to the table.

Homemade Chocolate Crepe with Strawberries Cream Cheese Filling Recipe

I love crepes, my girls love strawberries and chocolate, so I made this chocolate crepe with strawberries cream cheese filling for breakfast today. The strawberries were big and sweet, all riped yesterday and I had to preserve it and use them later. By adding a little bit sugar, the strawberries released the juice and prolonged the shelf life, turned into a yummy dessert on its own, or you can make it into this delicious breakfast (you can serve it as dessert too).
