Mocha Frappe

Prep: 10 min., Freeze: 2 hrs. To make strong brewed coffee, use 3 tablespoons coffee grounds to 1 cup water.
Yield: Makes 3 servings (serving size: 1 cup)


  • 1  cup  strong brewed coffee
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 1/4  cups  2% reduced-fat milk

Process coffee ice cubes, 1 1/4 cups milk, and chocolate syrup in a blender until smooth. Dollop evenly with whipped topping, and sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.

Banana-Mango Smoothie

Freeze the cubed mango overnight in an airtight container to make this smoothie a snap to throw together (for variety, try substituting frozen berries for the mango). Remember to let frozen mango thaw for 15 minutes to soften slightly. The dry milk is optional, but one tablespoon provides about 100 milligrams of calcium.
Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1 cup)


  • 1  cup  cubed peeled ripe mango
  • 3/4  cup  sliced ripe banana (about 1 medium)
  • 2/3  cup  fat-free milk
  • 1  tablespoon  nonfat dry milk (optional)
  • 1  teaspoon  honey
  • 1/4  teaspoon  vanilla extract


Arrange the mango cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze until firm (about 1 hour). Place frozen mango and the remaining ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth.

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Kebabs


  • 48  large unpeeled shrimp (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/2  cup  fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
  • 1/2  cup  dry white wine
  • 2  tablespoons  bottled minced garlic (about 12 cloves)
  • 2  tablespoons  steak sauce (such as Heinz 57)
  • 2  teaspoons  coarsely ground black pepper


Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact. Combine lemon juice, wine, garlic, steak sauce, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal, and shake to blend. Add shrimp; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning bag once.
Prepare grill.
Remove shrimp from bag, discarding marinade. Thread 8 shrimp onto each of 6 (12-inch) skewers. Place kebabs on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done.
Note: Substitute 1/3 cup water and 2 tablespoons vinegar for wine, if desired.

A quick 20-minute marinade adds bold flavor to the shrimp before they cook on the grill. Serve with a favorite beer or a tall glass of iced tea.
Try it !

as for now , I'm still confused about my studies !
I've been thinking a lot . And I can't even remember a few things now .
So , I guess I'll stick with Plan A; going for TESL in Unisel .
Or my-new-plan-not-so-okay; going for Cooking major .
wawawawa . I even laughed at myself .
Me , myself , cooking ?
That's embarrassing though .
I enjoyed cooking even I rarely cook .
When I was in the shower just now , I thought that I might go for cooking .
Then I told my parents and they're like " No . They have no future "
And I was . . kind of . . upset !
It's okay . I'll stick with plan A .
