Chocolate Souffle Palo


I would like to wish all family and friends, a HAPPY NEW YEAR.  A very sincere THANK YOU to all readers and fan who continue to come and read my humble postings.

Last year, Sandra ate at Palo, an adults-only restaurant on Disney Wonder Cruise, she raved about the Chocolate Souffle and when we ate at Palo in Disney Fantasy,  i can understand her raving.  Now I can chime my own praises and am so inspired that i have to bake them.  I found the recipe for Chocolate Souffle from Palo Disney Cruise Line and followed the method to the tee.  It was magical,  the souffles turned out airy, rich with creamy center and this complex confection rounded out our dinner with perfection.  My family an friends have not stop talking about this chocolate souffle.     They commented that i was really inspired cos i even made the cookie spoon which Palo used to garnish.  I  do regret that i did not make any chocolate sauce to go along with the vanilla sauce.  Well, will make chocolate sauce the next time around and will remember to sprinkle confectioner's sugar before serving(Was so excited to take the pic for posting that i totally forgot about the confectioner's sugar, thinking that the souffle will deflate, but it did not, it held high and made me brimming with pride)

Rose Wantan

Has it been that long?  5 weeks????? no posting!!  OMG, time really goes by fast when you are occupied.  Was really occupied, entertaining visitors, entertaining myself by going for a
Cruise - Disney Fantasy Cruise.  Had a Fantastic time especially enjoyed the food on board,  fine dining nightly with the most fabulous menu.  Could not decide what to order and our server had to bring me 2 entrees and 2 desserts - yes nightly.  The best part of all is that the orders are free,  the menu has no price tag.  Can't wait for breakfast every morning,  the buffet lounge is endless, the food was displayed in a circle and breakfast items are endless too - gravlax, smoked salmon, smoked mackerel, smoked trout, etc. Even the egg benedict served here was perfectly done and i had the pleasure of ordering egg benedict at Royal Court which was delicious.  Am running out of words to describe the food.  The second best part of the cruise was that i did not have to cook although i would love to.  But i did learn how to make strudel dough from scratch and make lobster ravioli from the chef of REMY. the famous french restaurant on board.
Now that i am back on land, the kitchen will be busy again.  There is nothing much that i can cook with until grocery shopping time.  Found some shrimp and wanted to make wantan but oh no, no wantan skin!!.  Found a packet of egg roll skin and remembered that making fried wantans with egg roll skin is in my do list.  Can't wait to start making them and the finished wantans were not only deliciously crispy but oh so pretty.
