Danish Pancake Balls

Also known as “Aebleskiver”.

I’ve first heard about this, while watching “The Great British Baking Show”.

I did some researching and I found a Pan that makes them.

Simple to make. You can make the batter from scratch or mix from a box.

The pan is non -stick but I still use Pam spray. It only takes a few minutes on medium heat. Pour a table spoon first of batter, add tiny portion of filling if desired (jam, pineapple, peanut butter, etc.). It cooks quickly, after 2 minutes turn over with spoon and cook another minute.

I put grape jelly and pineapple filling, with powdered sugar. Tastes delicious!!


The Crab Shack

Despite the down pour of rain and gusty winds, it was crowded. At 6:45 pm, there was a 20 minute wait.

We were seated and people started coming in. It was loud and not easy to have a casual conversation.

For starters l, I had an apple cider and my husband had a beer.

We both ordered “the welly” crumbed fish fillet l, shack tartar l, Swiss cheese, iceberg lettuce & tomato, served with steak fries & creamed corn.


It was delicious!! The fish was flaky and tasty. Fries weren’t too hot temperature wise, they were just right. And the creamed corn was yummy.

The staff was friendly and attentive. When they are busy, it does take awhile for the food to arrive.

Lots of choices to choose from on the menu. If you are craving seafood and in the area, give them a try.

By Design Pizza

I was craving for pizza, so hubby and I tried out By Design Pizza in Beaverton, Oregon for the first time.

Few of the pizzas are named after places of Oregon.

I had the “PDX Lex” it had spinach, virgin olive oil, sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, feta cheese. mozzarella cheese and I added pineapples.

At first the dough is paper thin but after it comes out of the oven, it is flaky and crispy.

It was delicious!

Dexter Brewhouse

We came here for brunch. Not too many people and we were seated right away.

We both ordered fried chicken and french toast. There were two big size chicken pieces. It was delicious and filling. Mmm

The staff was friendly and attentive. We didn’t wait too long for our meal. Nice casual atmosphere.

There were so many delicious dishes on the menu. You should give this place a try.

Curried Beef Kebabs

Ingredients: beef sirloin, scallions, curry powder, salt, garlic (minced) and canola oil.

Mix all in a bowl. Putting the meat and scallions on the skewers is time consuming. Curry makes your fingers yellow and the smell tends to linger. I made sure to wash my hands thoroughly.

I used this portable grill and depending on the cut of the meat, I had thin sliced beef and folded it, to make it thick to go through the skewers. Next time I’ll use thicker cut beef. I turned it over every minute until it was the way I wanted it cooked.
