Coffee Hazelnut Friands & why I've been MIA for so long

Friday, February 21, 2020



Hi!

I'm sorry that I've been away for more than a year.
Last year, I thought I wanted to be blogging again, but some health issues came up.

After I blogged about the Chocolate Ombre Cake, I went to Vietnam with my friend for few days. It was a tiring trip and I had trouble sleeping. And when I came back, there was more travelling with the kids, my body ended up exhausted. Two days after reaching home (finally), I fetched my mom for her medical appointment, and as I was driving home, the pain came.... simply put it as, my fourth time going into active labour. Yes, it was that type of pain, as if I was labour induced. Stopped my car beside the road and called my brother, who was the nearest one to me at that moment. I couldn't breathe whenever the pain came, you know, like when the strongest contractions come?
I was rushed to the hospital. I lost my ability to stand for the next few days because my spine flared up very badly. A month later, I flared up again. Anyway, cut the story short, it took me two hospitalizations to finally got diagnosed as having Spinal Osteoathritis. Couldn't stand for long, couldn't carry my handbag anymore, couldn't walk for long, .... took me one year of resting to be actively back in the kitchen. I started cooking again a month after my second hospitalization. But it was all simple meals, that I needed a few rests in between.

I thank God that I could stand and walk again, and it's a blessing to be able to do that. Actually it's not really a big issue, but when I was bed ridden, I realized that being able to stand each day, is really a blessing, His grace.

Chocolate Ombre Butter Cake (with video)

Wednesday, November 21, 2018



This cake was a random idea that popped in my head one fine day.....
Some weeks later, I made it, shared it on Facebook.... and made it again for my kids' children's day in school.

The layering for my latter attempt wasn't as good, maybe because I put it too low in the oven, hence, the layers curved up. So, in order for you to get a better looking cake than me, I suggest that you bake it on the middle rack instead of the lower rack.

Pumpkin Rice Vermicelli 金瓜米粉

Friday, October 26, 2018



Pumpkin Rice Vermicelli is a popular noodle dish from Taiwan.
But I have never tried it before in Taiwan.

I have no idea if this will be something similar, but I just cooked this based on my own imagination.

Cream Cheese Souffle Pancake *With Video

Wednesday, October 24, 2018



It's been a while since I wrote something on this blog.

For those of you who are with me on Facebook, I am still posting my current kitchen adventures.
I am also on Instagram and I'm also planning to make more videos since the internet speed at home has greatly improved.

Few years back, for me to upload one 5 minute video, took me more than 1 hour! It was really a torture, making sure connection didn't break or I would have to start all over again, the waiting, the upload and the processing before the video was complete on Youtube. Now all this is history. I'm done uploading a 10 minute video in 5-10 minutes.

Bak Kwa @ Yoke Gon @ Chinese Pork Jerky 猪肉干

Friday, January 12, 2018


I have been making these since I was a teen. For each Chinese New Year, my mom will order 4kg of minced pork from the butcher, get it sent to our home and I will be doing the marinating and sun drying. When mom comes back from work, she would start the charcoal grill and it's grilling time.

I haven't been making these for many many years, until a blogger's gathering 7 years ago. I tried to recall the ratio and the outcome was a bit too salty, maybe I got it wrong. Then, two years back, I tried to make it again. The taste was just right, but the colour was too dark due to the addition of just 1/2 Tbsp of dark caramel sauce. This time, I made it again and it was just nice. Sweet, sticky, not too salty and the colour was what I wanted.
