Banh Khot

After stumbling on WanderingChopstick's review of Brodard and Simcook's post on Vung Tau I had an immense craving for some banh khot. Unfortunately, I don't know of any restaurants in Northern VA that offers this dish (please let me know if you know of any) so I decided to make it myself. I managed to find some special pans for making the banh khot at a local Vietnamese grocery store, they were only $10 bucks each! I bought some banh xeo mixes from the store to make the batter and added scallions and shrimp. The banh khot didn't come out as crunchy but it wasn't bad and satisfied my craving for now :D

Fruit Tarts

As expected, I'd get lazy and lag in my posts so it's going to take a while to catch up. Please bear with me!

For Fourth of July, I attemped a Fruit Tart Recipe that my friend sent me, her recipe was similar to the one posted on Joys of Baking. I didn't have time to make the crust so i bought a premade one from the grocery store, it still turned out pretty good.
