Pumpkin with Dried Prawns and Curry Leaves

There are already more than 500 entries for this month's LTU event and Eileen is one busy lady. Who would have thought that the humble pumpkin, fabled to turn into a golden carriage by Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, would garner such overwhelming support. Good to know that so many of us love pumpkins!

Sour Cream Banana Cake

This recipe comes from Minty's Kitchen. I have to agree with Veronica that this is a very good banana cake. It is very moist and tender, the ultimate recipe for a banana cake lover. Whenever I find myself with an abundance of ripe bananas, I turn to this recipe.

It's Monday folks and let's have a laugh at PH's latest kitchen disaster! An episode arising from her insistence on saving some not-so-fresh chicken fillet. Take it away, PH!

Coconut and Gula Melaka Pumpkin Pie

I can't believe I spent half the morning at 1-Utama looking for a tart pan. Me. Tart pan. Who would have thought? I am still shaking my head in disbelief.

Apple Apricot Cake

Last month I stocked up on apples to support the LTU Apple event. But I only managed one submission which was Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake. Before the month ended, I was struck with dengue and my plans for the apples went out the window. Luckily, these green apples keep very well.

Pumpkin Pecan Cake

The recipe for this cake comes from the book Lovely Butter Cakes by Amy Wong and KS Lee. However, the cake does not contain any butter but uses corn oil instead. Butter is applied only on the surface of the cake together with icing sugar and orange essence. It is an easy cake to make as it only involves the simple mixing of wet to dry ingredients, pretty much like making muffins.

Peruvian Roast Chicken with Aji Verde Chili Sauce

Knowing how risk averse I am when it comes to trying new recipes, I was rather surprised that I made this Peruvian Roast Chicken. But hey, it's chicken. I'll go anywhere with chicken.

Pumpkin Bars

I am really using dengue recovery as an excuse to eat, aren't I? I know I will regret this when I step onto the scale. But for now my scale will be lying underneath my chest of drawers doing what it does best - collecting dust. Hah!

Lemon Butter Cake

I was tidying up my fridge last weekend and I discovered another two lemons. I had baked a Lemon Butter Cake for my parents the day before and it looks like I can now bake another one for myself hee..hee...

Pumpkin Rice

I wanted to eat something good. Something really good. After a few days of hospital food and "chap fan", I really needed to eat something good!
