tons of thai iced tea

I love Thai iced tea. I hate paying 3-4 bucks for a lil thing of Thai iced tea.


Make it yourself.

Thai tea leaves
Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg.

I used  over a cup of loose Thai tea leaves and a bunch of sugar with about 10 cups of water.

First let the water boil then add the tea leaves, spices and sugar to simmer for at least 20 minutes.

Let it sit off the heat for 30 mins. 

Strain into a heat proof container ( I used flour sack cloth to strain through a colander into a bowl).

Let it cool to room temperature then place in a pitcher.

Serve over ice with half and half, cream or evaporated milk. 

You can also make it less sweet initially and then use condensed milk. 

chocolate and vanilla bean swirled marble cake

Aaaand I'm back.

Here's a cake I made today. I gave part to my parents and I'm about to bring a piece to the hospital for the nurse that helped my dad a lot these past weeks.

First you get the vanilla batter with a bit of lemon extract and vanilla beans swirled in.

Then you get the chocolate with some scharffen berger bittersweet folded inside

Then you dump em in your pan and cut through it with a knife.

Then you wait for it to bake and take lots of shots of it for no reason. :P
