Korokke (Croquette)

With the extra potatoes lying around the kitchen, I decided to try something new after watching a travel show. When I had visited Japan for the first time, I actually did not try korokkes which just gives me the reason to go back as soon as possible. For those that are not aware, korokke is basically croquettes with a Japanese twist.
As I was searching for recipes online, I came across this recipe that seemed relatively easy to follow. The results turned out better than I had expected but I think I will need to add more seasoning next time I make it as my family prefers richer tasting items.

Chipits Bake Bar

With the gloomy weather, I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled on Chipits Bake Bar by the beaches. It’s a pop-up shop that offers free cookies until July 16th where you can either customize your own cookies or choose one from their set menu. I liked the fact that while they are promoting their products, they are also adding a charitable component where for each bag of cookies they give out, a meal will be donated to the Daily Food Bank.

I had trouble with choosing the combinations that were available so I ended up deciding on the Salty/Sweet Cookie from their set menu and I really didn’t know what to expect. The cookies took about 10-15 minutes to bake and they were super soft which is exactly how I liked them.
