Keby's Special-Tea!

 

You know that I love drinking tea, but did you know I make my own "tea" from my own herbs? Throughout the summer, I dry lots of herbs and use them for cooking and tea making in the winter. What I make is not technically tea because there are no tea leaves in it, but we'll just call it herbal tea to make things easy.

Keby's homemade tea 

I just made a batch of Keby’s Mint Special-Tea and wanted to show you how I do it and how easy it is for anyone to do. You don't even need to have your own dried herbs since you can buy them in most markets these days. I'll show you how to make mint tea because it's easy, and the only herb you'll need is mint!

Gutsy Snacks

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

 

You know all those seeds that just seem like part of the gross, gooey, mushy pumpkin guts? Well, they are actually a delicious snack! Usually people just toast pumpkin seeds using salt as a flavoring, but why not try something else? You can cover them with garlic powder, curry powder, seasoned salt or anything else you can think of. Or, how about trying one of these recipes?

Campfire Foods

It turns out that Moo-Cow's not only good at starting campfires, but he's great at cooking over them as well. He showed us how to make a few variations on some campfire favorites.

 

 

Stickscuits

So, you really want some fresh baked bread to go with your campfire dinner, but you aren't about to try and cook a loaf in a fire pit. How about making some quick and easy Stickscuits instead! Stickscuits are biscuits on a stick, of course, and all you'll need to make them is one sturdy stick and a can of biscuit dough (the kind you find in the refrigerated section of the supermarket).

My Favorite Plant to Drink!

Keby pours tea

 

 

Have you heard the legend of how tea drinking was discovered? Supposedly a few leaves from a tea plant fell into a Chinese emperor's pot of boiling water, and he decided to give it a taste. Who knows if that is actually true, but it shows that there is a long history of drinking tea in China and when we visited I couldn’t wait to learn more about it. Oh, and in Chinese the word for tea is “cha.”

 

What I really wanted to do when we were in China was attend a tea ceremony. You can drink tea just about anywhere, but I wanted to learn about each tea and really appreciate it. Luckily, in Shanghai we found a great one that was well worth it!

Spring Onion Pancake Recipe

Eating in China is soooooo much fun! You just walk around the street and there are people with little carts set up, or in tiny storefront shops, selling delicious dumplings, soups, buns, and my new favorite—spring onion pancakes! The only way these are anything like a pancake is they're flat. Other than that they are more like a yummy, savory, fried dough (I definitely wouldn't recommend them for breakfast). In China, they only cost us about ten cents each, and I got one fresh from the cooker. It was so hot it burned my hands, but it was worth it!

I really wanted to learn how to make these so I got Moo-Cow's expert cooking help. It turns out that they are simple to make with just a few basic ingredients! Here's our recipe. I hope you find them as delicious as we do!

O
kay Melissa, it wasn't easy, but we managed to get the recipe for you. We didn't have problems because F.W. was trying to hide the secret family recipe or anything, but because he didn't have the recipe! It turns out that this is a recipe his mom taught him and he's always just remembered it, but he remembered it as a pinch of this, a dash of that, and paw full of the other thing. He had no real measurements at all! So we sent F.W. into the MCFC test kitchens, with our master chef Moo-Cow, to work out a recipe everyone could follow. It took a lot of batches of delicious pancakes to get it right, but they finally got it down to a written recipe F.W. is happy with. Here is the outcome and we have to admit, they really are

Anzac Biscuits

One of the most important holidays in Australia is ANZAC day, celebrated on April 25. ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps, and the day celebrates the brave deeds of the men who fought in World War I. There are huge celebrations held every year, and many people celebrate by making ANZAC biscuits (cookies). These cookies were created during the war when people would send them in care packages to the soldiers. You can make a batch of these anytime of the year, but make sure to bake a batch to celebrate ANZAC day!

My Favorite Foods!

 

I recently got an e-mail from Ling W. asking "What is your favorite desert?" I get that question a lot, along with “What's your favorite food?” I don’t know why people ask me those questions so often. Moo-Cow is the real cook around here, but I do cook dinner for me and Ramses almost every night, and maybe people know about that.
