Delicious Homemade Chocolate Rice & Raisin Almond Cookies

“Super crispy and delicious cookies! Some homemade goodies which allow you to enjoy at ease.”

As usual, some baking staples were left untouched on the kitchen shelves for quite a while. I was afraid they would end up in the trash bin as expiry dates were close. I just pulled these items out and made my cookies with instant ideas (chuckles).

These cookies turned out excellent and the first batch of my bake was simply wiped out the moment they were ready to be eaten. Even for me, a conscious diet watcher, I ate quite a bit of them, too. Why so? I was not afraid because… I baked them with shortening instead of butter! All-vegetable shortening contains 50% less saturated fat than butter. Further more, I had added less sugar than what commonly uses in many recipes. It’s sweet enough to my liking. More

Chinese Burger

“This Chinese burger with delicious Bak kwa and pork floss brings your good childhood memory back to life”

This is undeniable appeal and infinite flexibility have inspired a culinary lover, like me, to improvise the recipe, for the popular Chinese carb-snack during my childhood time.. How does this recipe come into my collection? I remembered those days where roadside stalls that sold these warm aromatic Bak Kwa sandwiches were found easily. I missed the taste, but couldn’t find it anymore. You may try your luck to find this delicacy in Malaysia, but it is simply not easy to find it in Singapore nowadays (No more roadside hawker lar..) I really like it. So as my family. So, I thought of making my own version by a recipe I have adapted simply based on my childhood memories… Blah blah blah… Things have just rolled on apace since then. And this is the creation what you see now!

It’s easy, actually.. More

Golden Flapjack Oat Bar Recipe

“Low in fat and sugar, high in crunch factor and flavour. Make your own flapjack aka baked oat bar easily at home, for a relatively healthy tea time, anytime. “

Flapjack, is a sweet baked bar mainly made from rolled oats, brown sugar and golden syrup in British cuisine. Some added with nuts, raisins or dried fruits. I made the most basic flapjacks, with reduced fat and sugar amount, for a more healthy version.

The taste of my flapjack reminds me of the popcorn we ate in the movie, when I first tasted it. It was so crispy to munch, leaving with hint of buttery aroma in the palate. The flapjack was to be made as an alternative to those high fat, high sugar or high calories cookies. Bake this in bars, for my breakfast, or in squares, as the bite-size snacks and munches during tea time. More
