Eat: Easy home made granola recipe

DSCF6508Making your own granola may seem like a lot of work but it is really not. All it takes is mixing the ingredients in a bowl, pouring said mixed ingredients on to a baking sheet and placing said sheet into the oven to bake. It is really that simple and the best part is that you can customise it according to your preferences.

3.5 cups of rolled oats

1.5 cups of nuts (I used almonds and pumpkin seeds here)

1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey

6 teaspoons of olive oil

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

Mix ingredients in mixing bowl

Pour ingredients on to a lined sheet tray

Bake at 170 degrees celcius for 25-30 minutes until golden brown

*If you want clusters, let the granola cool in tact on the sheet tray. After the granola has cooled down, you can break it into clusters of your preferred size. 

They also make great gifts. Here is a picture of the granola I gave away as Christmas presents last year.



Eat: Candy Crepe by Bangmad



It has been some time since we updated this. Since our last post, there has been a proliferation of “influencers” who may or may not be true paying consumers. We thought we should restart this space to share our thoughts on some of our experiences since we are true paying consumers.

We were in Bangkok for a quick weekend getaway and this was a snack I wanted to pick up after seeing it pop up frequently on my Instagram feed. I do love my sweets. Candy crepe is based on a street snack known as roti sai mai. This is of course the modern interpretation complete with colourful packaging.

We managed to pick it up from Central Embassy (BTS Ploen Chit) from a little cart from the third floor. It is located by the escalator. The box set pictured comes with two boxes of the candy floss and a packet of fresh crepes. This costs 250 Baht. You can also get smaller packets but that comes without the box.

It is such a fun snack! What you do is pile on the candy floss on a crepe, roll it up and eat! The crepe was fragrant with the smell of pandan and the candy floss was very fluffy. Definitely a cute and edible souvenir to bring back from Bangkok.
