"Rice Balls"

I chose to make rice balls because it is easy and quick to prepare. Regular rice balls are just plain and boring, but I designed the rice balls into the shape of chicks to make them look more appealing, especially for kids. This food also consists of all healthy, non-fat ingredients, so it would make a perfect lunch box for kids.

soy sauce
sesame oil
3 eggs

1. Boil 2 eggs for 18 minutes. Peel off the shell.

2. Cut the eggs in half and carve out the yolk.

3. Cut it into these shapes to make them look like "cracked eggs" for embellishment purpose.

4. Take another brand new egg and separate out the yolk.

5. Mix the yolk with rice and add 1.5 tablespoon of soy sauce and one tablespoon of sesame oil. Once the rice is prepared, shape them into two tiny rice balls.

6. Boil the broccoli for 5 minutes.
7. Wash the tomatoes.

8. Make the eyes of the chicks with the seaweed and the nose and the wings using cheese. Lay out the tomatoes and broccoli for decoration.
9. Enjoy!

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

For our culinary project, I decided to do something that I know the best which is baking. I decided to make Red Velvet Cupcakes, the recipe isn't mine.  I got the recipe from food network.com, it is from Paula Deen.  I chose this recipe because it's very close to my heart.  The first time I made this recipe it was for my boyfriend's birthday but it also was the first time I was meeting his family and friends.  I wanted to make something that was different from regular chocolate or vanilla cupcakes so I made Red Velvet Cupcakes.  I must of done a good job in making these cupcakes because they were a hit with his family and friends.  I have to say that I feel as if I won them over with these cupcakes.

The recipe goes as follow...


For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 pound cream cheese, softened
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • Chopped pecans and fresh raspberries or strawberries, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.
Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled. Bake in oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans once, half way through. Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.

Grab a nice cold of milk and a cupcake .... Enjoy!

Javier's Stew Beef With Bittermelon

This is a recipe my parents cooked just to have something to eat. This recipe is what they learn as youths growing up in Guyana. There really is not a recipe tht have accurate of teaspoon or such. You just use your ingredients on how you see it or how you think you should cook it. Mainly you assumption But I should give you an idea on how its supposed to be done.


1. 2 to 3 cups of rice
2. A pound of chicken or beef
3. Seasonings ( Black Pepper, Lemon Pepper, Soul Seasoning, Oregano, Old Bay Seasoning
4. Celery
5. Parlies
6. Scallions
7. 1 onion
8. 2 garlic
9. 1 tamatoes (green)
10. Bittermelons


1. Clean the chicken then cut the chicken or beef you can let the chicken soak with vinegar and lemon in warm water for a while. (In this case all of this was done along time ago so it came out of the freezer clean and the beef was cut a long time ago so my pops was cutting the chicken already.) 2.Get a cooking pot and put at least 1/2 of cup of cooking oil into the pot. Let the cooking oil get hot before you put anything into it. 3.Dice the bitterlemons into cubes. Also dice the parlies, scallions, onions, garlic, tamatoes small or into cubes if you can. 4. After the the cooking oil gets hot add the chicken or beef into the pot. 4.While the chicken is cooking add the seasonings as well. 5. Add the celery parlies scallions onion garlics tamatoes and bittermelons into the pot. 6.Let it cook for at least 35 - 45 mins. (stir fry).

I apologize if you feel certain things were left out. Certain things that was supposed to be shown and explain was cook or done ahead of time.

Candy-Coated Bacon

This is an original recipe I created a few months ago. This recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients that are equally delicious on their own, but together make a surprisingly tasty snack. The crunchy bacon, covered with the chocolate and M&M's mixed together make a salty sweet desert. This desert isn't calorie conscious and is best served with any juice or soft drink.

-4 slices, Oscar Meyer thick cut bacon
-1 cup, Baker's chocolate chunks
-1 bag, plain M&M's
-Wooden skewer sticks

Directions: 1)Place bacon strips flat in frying pan. 2)When bacon has cooked, quickly slide bacon on to wooden skewer sticks. 3)Bring 3cups of water to a boil. 4)Pour 1cup of chocolate chunks into glass bowl and set in boiling pan. 5)Stir continually until chocolate is fully melted and smooth.6)Poor chocolate over bacon. 7) Place M&M's on top of chocolate while it is still warm. 8) Place in refrigerator for 30mins or until chocolate hardens.
