“Simple ingredients, for a good enough hawker treat at home.”
Satay, barbecued chicken on-stick, is one of the famous Singapore/ Malaysia hawker food that everybody loves!
I have always wanted to cook satay at home, but the extended peeling & chopping, blending and long simmering preparation put me off. Only until today, my satays are finally served on the dining table. It was simply for my son. He loved satay, but I was a little skeptical to let my 2.5yo son have much of the stall bought satays. No choice, hubby pressed me to cook it for son. I have to do it. :)
“Tiramisu, a coffee flavoured Italian dessert that is not uncommonly found in the cafes and bakeries in Singapore.”
Tiramisu is made of Italian airy biscuit sticks (called it the ladyfingers), soaked in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with alcohol, mostly… This popular sweet treat is not difficult to assemble. Many have been coming up with their own best version, and since it has been adapted and varied so much in order to blend into the culture and taste of the people in different countries, as for the homemade, we, too, make and try to achieve the best recipe that suits our very own tastebud.
Saw some posts about this hidden heart cake for Valentine’s Day, and I couldn’t stop myself for making one in this sweet festive day. It’s not difficult to bake this, but takes long time to assemble the whole thing. It took me 3 hrs for the whole process.
Hard effort paid off in the end. It was indeed romantic to be able to eat this ‘sweet hidden heart’ with the one you loved. Real romantic and heart warming.
“Looking for pineapple tart recipe? Here’s my homemade pineapple tart, in rolls, from scratch. It’s simple that even a beginner in baking could do it!”
I made and am always making the express pineapple tarts, using store-bought pineapple jam filling from Phoon Huat stores. Both the open-faced tart and ball types. Just making the crust, and my tarts were ready to be indulged in. For this good year, I’ve made the filling as well. It’s not that the filling is difficult to make. It isn’t, but takes time, like 2 hours and so?! Then why now? Because I did not go Phoon Huat, but NTUC Finest supermarket. Saw the Sweet 16 brand pineapple there, I had the urge to make pineapple rolls! Not forgetting my new crust/ cookie pump set, I want to make pineapple rolls! Lol
