A Dozen Delicacies - Quails Eggs

This is street food in Taiwan but is a real delicacy in Canada.

I've only have quails eggs as a delicacy in Canada so I was fascinated by the fact this was a common street food. Since I thought that two quails eggs would be very decadent as opposed to the gleaming jewel of one, I ordered two quails eggs.... or so I thought!

It turns out that I ordered two servings, which totals a dozen little eggs.

Carrot Top

My garden is a mystery to me at times and I'm just learning more and more about the soil. I didn't turn over the soil very well where I planted the carrots and underneath is hard packed clay. It turns out that the carrots cannot grow down into the tough layer. Instead, they twist every which way in a desperate attempt to keep growing.

Only the top part of the carrots show any semblance of straightness. The rest look like modern sculpture or a puzzle.

I won't be putting these back together anytime soon!

Lime Zucchini Cake

Chocolate zucchini cake tastes overwhelmingly of chocolate, which I love. But I thought I would challenge myself to make a cake in which zucchini was more apparent. I'm not sure if I'll make a second attempt as this one was very very heavy. It may work better with regular wheat flour instead of gluten free.

 It was more like a heavily frosted pancake. No recipe as it wasn't something I want to repeat!
