Every summer, I visit the CNE. When I do, I always go to the Farm building and visit the Milk section to pick up a Milk calendar! This free calendar is always beautifully designed and filled with the best recipes! I got my hands on a milk calendar and made my birthday recipe, Milk Pudding. Check out the recipie below, and download a copy of the calendar here!
Everyone's Milk Pudding
This delicious and easy recipe is from the 2016 Milk Calendar.
In a large saucepan, stir 3 cups (750 mL) milk with sugar. Set over medium-high heat, stir and bring to a simmer.
Place remaining milk in a medium bowl. Whisk in cornstarch until dissolved. Once milk reaches a simmer, whisking continuously, add cornstarch mixture.
Bring to a full rolling boil; stir continuously until mixture thickens, 1 to 2 min. Remove from heat; stir in rosewater, if using, and 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla. If not using rosewater, stir in 3 tsp (15 mL) vanilla.
Pour into a bowl or individual serving dishes. To prevent a skin from forming, place plastic wrap on surface of pudding. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set. Discard plastic wrap. Sprinkle with raisins and cinnamon or your favourite toppings.
Although Guu Izakaya has changed its name to Kinka (it means golden flower!) Izakaya, nothing else has changed. You’ll still find a great atmosphere and delicious, authentic Japanese dishes. I visited the Kinka Izakaya North York location.
Staff yell out friendly greetings when you arrive and when you leave in Japanese (that I can actually understand thanks to my short-lived Japanese classes), and the space is larger than expected.
There’s a good selection of sake or cocktails if that’s more your thing. I had the Cherry Blossom Cocktail with red wine, peach liqueur, cassis liqueur and Sprite, which I really enjoyed. My friend had the Bamboo Cocktail with melon liqueur, vodka, guava juice and soda. She loved the tropical touches in this drink! (more…)

I like to eat food, and occasionally I like to make food, but I wouldn’t call myself a chef. When I had the chance to participate in a one of a kind cook off challenge, I couldn’t turn it down!
Florida KeysChef Bobby Stoky flew into Toronto to whip several food bloggers, recipe writers and influences into shape in a fun cook-off. We didn’t know what we would be cooking, but I had a hunch on dessert that proved to be correct! We created two dishes, Onion-Encrusted Yellowtail with Mango Salsa and Key Lime Pie. (more…)
