Howto: Café Latté

If you love coffee as much as I do, you might already have an espresso machine. If not, you should get one now or suffer the Starbuck's prices for the rest of your life.

While my machine is in the 200$ range, I think it exceeds most of the ones sold at a higher price. One thing I like about this machine is that it's simple: no fuzzy buttons that do everything for you. If you want to make good coffee, learn how to do it yourself and then perfect your technique.

Since I've been owning this device for a couple of months now, I did have the time to try things. One of which is making café latté. If you need to learn how to make one, keep reading.

I'm on the list!

I have just received an email from the school. At last, I am on the list of the next students to graduate.

Best French Toast

The best french toasts recipe I know:

  • 2 eggs
  • Some milk
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract
  • Some bread

And of course, you need real Canadian syrup, not that cheap stuff made with corn!

But the recipe is not that important. What is good when eating such a nice breakfast is the fact that you are not doing it. Yes, I do love cooking, and am getting better at it every day, but once in a while, it is time to let the other one be the chef.

And even though it was her first time cooking french toasts, they were real good. So thank you honey for that great weekend and all the cooking you did in the last two days.

My new toys

It has been one week now in my new apartment and I felt something was missing.

Looking in the kitchen, I discovered that I had no oven and no washing machine. Sure, a microwave is convenient, but I have yet to find a way to cook an omelet in it.

So I went shopping. And here are the results: a Whirlpool ceran oven and a front-load Maytag washing machine. The bill is high, but I think it is worth the price.

From now on, I have no reasons to wear dirty clothes. So if something smells weird, it will not be me.
