Easy Butter Cookies

“It’s that melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies…”

Yes, you guessed correctly. It’s that in-trend butter cookie making. My copycat of “the copycat (of) Jenny bakery cookies” from a blog which I happened to chance upon one day. I have not tried the original Jenny bakery cookie yet, and had no intention to ‘challenge’ this popular bake. I just thought the recipe shared in this blog, JoyMadeThese (thank you) looked really easy to make, with just simple ingredients needed. So, I baked.

Instead of the usual dipping sauce of chili Padi in light soy sauce, I think this special mixed sauce goes even better with the grilled or pan fried fish.

Less salty with a tinge of sweetness, it gives the barely seasoned fish meat a full flavor by just dipping it into this refreshing sweet spicy sauce. Yes, you do not need to add extra seasoning to marinate the fish to make your grilled fish meal a delicious hit. With the dipping sauce.

Moist and fluffy Banana Sponge Cake

One of my favorite pastime activities is to bake with my little one. Meaningful, loving, fulfilling, educational, and most of all, indulging.

My 3-yo son and I baked at the noon, just in time to indulge in this super soft and fluffy sweet treat as our tea.

Oh yes, I always get a large comb of bananas which we never able to finish up before having to feed the overripe to the trash bin. How come I never thought freezing them?? This idea just came to my mind! I was simply insane for wasting how many bananas away throughout the years!! I’ve learnt and gotten myself to freeze bananas in the freezer just yesterday! Yea ~

Creamy Curry Pork 6-Grain Wrap

“Delicious and wholesome lunch with healthy multi-grain wrap.”

Wrap meals often remind me of Mexico food, but I would prefer having the wrap with an Asian flavor closer to my palate at times, if I were to make one at home. For this reason, I chose to make my wrap in my Asian inspired recipe. Yes, with curry, pork… Already having my dry curry pork recipe which cooked to more an Indian cuisine (See recipe here), the curry pork cooking has now been simplified, for the wrap creation. Call it Asian-fusion recipe here, it’s mixed to a western flavor, instead.:)
