Gluten/Dairy Free Chocolate Almond Meal Cake

I made almond milk for the first time the other day and was seriously surprised how good it was. After making the milk I had a bunch of almond meal left over so I decided to try making a gluten and dairy free almond meal cake. After searching around Pinterest I came across this recipe from Edible Perspective, it looked good and had lots of nice comments so I decided to give it a go!

How to make Almond Milk

Generally I just buy nut milk from the grocery store but thought I would give making my own a try.It’s actually quite easy and it tastes wayyyy better then the stuff from the grocery store. I recently picked up a nut milk bag, and had  grand plans of waking up before work and making nut milk. I put the almonds to soak on Thursday night, I woke up on Friday morning but the desire to sleep in a bit longer resulted in no nut milk.

Mu Shu Pork 木須肉

I had recently seen cloud ears when walking through the market, so i decided to try to make Mu Shu Pork one of my favorite Chinese dishes from when i was little. I want to try and cook a new dish every few weeks trying to use something i am not completely familiar with from the wet market.

How To Cook Artichokes & Spicy Grilled Artichokes

I did something stupid... I took a bunch of photos on how to cook artichokes then i deleted them...i thought i had already uploaded them to my computer gurrrrr So this is the second set of almost the exactly same photos! I was lucky to find artichokes again they don't often have such nice ones in Hong Kong.
