“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.
“A ‘copy-cat’ recipe that worth following, giving you healthier new year goodies!”
Obviously I did not create this recipe. I am not the first few to make this snack, too. I was just following the ‘trend’, if you already are making it or have done it many time. For Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, for your own consumption or as gift during new year visits. It’s surely healthier (it’s air-fried) for you and your wallet! It’s easy, too!
