“Thank you all. My friends, my readers and my fans, for liking my recipes on this blog all these years”
First of all, thank you to Natalie who nominated My Wok Life in the Blog Awards 2015 Best Food Blog Category!
Me among the nominees :)
The Singapore Blog Awards, organised by Singapore’s leading bilingual news and entertainment portal, omy.sg, first wrote to notify me about the nomination, and this came as a pleasant surprise to me when I first read it.
Natalie thinks My Wok Life has a X-factor to be the best food blog. I hope all of you agree, too! :D
“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.
