Just thinking to do a short recap/review of what i have cooked/ baked for the past one year in 2011 before New Year 2012 knock our door tomorrow. This recap is based on what my family's favourite food. Actually there are too many of our favourites, i have hard time to choose which post to include in this post..First thinking to choose only 10 favourite posts but it ended up with 15 favourite posts, hehehe..
And looking back through my posts for past one year, and i know why every of my New Year resolution to get slimmer never happen, look at all food that i have prepared and eaten, hahaha...
Thank you to all who dropping by my blog, you have motivating me to continue striving for greatness in the kitchen!
Today we enjoyed our lunch with the salted eggs that i made for the first time. Before i share with you this recipe, first let me introduce you the owner of this recipe, she is Yan with her blog "Simple Menu". She is one of my blogger friend that i keep in touch almost daily (we chat thru MSN). I encouraged her to create this blog as she always preparing simple dishes since she is staying alone. She has another blog called "Bakeling" which she is sharing maily on photography...i also learnt photography tips from her too.
We just back from a makan trip vacation (food hunting trip) where we went up to nothern part of Malaysia, Penang, Taiping and Ipoh..Our first stop was in Penang,,and we listed a long list of Penang famous street foods to try out. Let me first share with you this famous charcoal Char Koay Teow (Stir fried Chinese flat noodles) at Jalan Siam Penang..
Yesterday i shared with you salted fish, and I am going to share you a bowl of spicy, sour, fruity and fragrant Penang assam laksa using fresh fish today. Penang Assam Laksa was voted as CNN’s top 10 yummiest food !!
When i need to use dairy cream, usually i will buy one big litre instead of small packet since the price is much cheaper if compare to just buy a small packet. But i need to start to figure out what to make when there is some leftover..this time, I replaced Oreo biscuit with Marie biscuit to make this Sawdust Pudding..
I was staying at Le Meridien hotel during my recent trip to Xiamen.
Extracted from their website- Surrounded by open spaces and lush vegetation, our hotel exists in a fine balance between an urban and a natural setting. Nestled on a slope of Xianyue Hill, just fifteen minutes from the airport, the site commands breathtaking views of Xiamen Bay.
After I saw Helena's financiers with strawberry, reminded me that i have few new financier moulds still not use before. Since i still have some left over egg white, then i decided to bake Financiers from Okashi cookbook which i also bookmarked long ago..
I would like to continue sharing the pictures taken during my trip to Xiamen China recently. There are not many places to visit in Xiamen, when i asked the local people where to visit, they told me only Gulangyu Island..The only transport to this island is by ferry, about 5 minutes from Xiamen city center.Gulangyu Island is renowned for its beaches and winding lanes and its varied architecture.
This is another work under 吃饱饭没事做 (Having nothing better to do after being fed). I just like to try out making this "Tau Sha Piah" even i can easily buy this from the outside shops...when this biscuit hot came out from oven, it tastes like the one which is selling in the shop as it is very flaky and smells good !
