Video Recipe: Durian Cake with Banana Streusel in Glass

“Scrumptious durian dessert recipe, now comes with a professional video cookbook, by and on foodforlifetv.com”

The media news and durian experts speculated that MSW (Musang King) durians would drop its price this August. So, I thought it’s the best time (again) to eat the king of fruits, durian. To me, it’s more that just eating this creamy fruit, incorporate yummy durian into your homemade dessert and baked goodness would be an excellent idea, too!

The super aromatic and crunchy banana crumbs as the topping is something you wouldn’t want to miss. Make sure you have it to compliment this durian cake in glass well.

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.

Grilled Mixed Herbs Salmon & Tomatoes (Air-Fried)

Crisped and browned on the surface, but tender and moist inside. That’s how my grilled Salmon was. I usually cooked this way when I wanted to have pasta or noodles in sauce, or rice with other saucy dishes.

I wouldn’t serve as it is as a main course, if I did not make a sauce to go along, even though it wasn’t dried at all. I just thought it would be a bit plain.. unless to make some wet sides eg baked beans, gravies baby corns, mashed potato with sauce, etc. Salsa or cheesy spinach might be good, too. Those would do.. Alright, I should do the Western main course style the next time. :)

Spicy Ma Po Tofu with Sweet Corn (Spicy Soy Bean Paste Tofu)

“My easy-peasy one-dish-meal version of Mapo tofu”

Happened to chance upon a Japanese version of spicy bean paste at $2 Daiso store. Hence, made a dish with this instant paste and a block of silken tofu I had for quite some time as well as whatever was available in my refrigerator.

Simple and easy recipe I have created for tonight’s dinner. It was subtly tasted with just a hinge of spiciness from the bean paste. So, if you are a fan of super spicy dish, add chili oil to it.

Serves 3-4
Ingredients
1 block of silken tofu, large cubed
1 bowl of sweet corn kernel, pre-boiled to cook and soften (from 1 sweet corn)
150g of minced meat, seasoned with light soy sauce and sesame oil

Grilled Fried Egg Sandwich With Creamy Avocado (Air-Fried)

(It’s all about air-fry….)

It’s not impossible to fix up a scrumptious and healthy sandwich breakfast without going through extensive cooking process in the busy morning. Air-fryer might be an option.

I made an egg sandwich with creamy avocado with an air fryer. Of course, some would still find it easier to do the conventional way, on the stove. Either way, this recipe works.

Many people liked avocado but ain’t too sure how to make it delicious other than making it into guacamole or blending into smoothie. Here I have one of the quickest and simplest ways, similar to guacamole but much simpler to do for breakfast meals.

Baked (Pull-Apart) Orange French Toast

“In between orange French toast and banana bread pudding, to be served with loads of fruit toppings.”

I admit I wasn’t that creative in cooking at times. As this blog of MY was meant to be a record of my home cooking so as to pass down the recipes in a digital way to my elder girl when she grows up and keen to learn cooking, I thought of just as well sharing it with all people who loved cooking, or would like to start cooking with some easy-to-follow recipes and scrumptious enough dishes. Thus, the sharing.. :D
