Colek (Terengganu Fruit Dip)

When you have a bag of fresh juicy red Jambu Air what comes to mind? If you are from Terengganu, the first thing that pops into your head is COLEK!

Pigging Out At The Home of Sticky Bones

This is not a food review per se but more of me telling you about my weekend makan session. After this outing, I cannot look at another rib for at least another 6 months.

Pumpkin and Carrot Muffins

Just the other day I received an update from Nom Nom Paleo and I saw these gorgeous Paleo Pumpkin and Carrot Muffins. They looked really good to me. I was quite interested to sample a paleo version of muffins but alas, I can't get two ingredients namely almond flour and almond butter. Is almond flour the same as ground almonds?

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes

When I say these cupcakes are good, I mean SERIOUSLY good! The best part is you don't need a cake mixer to prepare the batter. This Chocolate Buttermilk cake has a very special place in my heart because it was the first ever chocolate cake that I baked when I started baking two years ago.

My Bad : Naughty Bites

There is guilt written all over this post. Guilt for partaking in a guilty pleasure.

Fudgy Steamed Chocolate Cake

Gawd! This cake is so fudgy and moist and chocolaty! If I wasn't on a diet, I would have polished off half the cake LOL!

Daddy's Grilled Chicken

Hang on a second. This grilled chicken looks very familiar doesn't it?. It has an uncanny resemblance to Pinoy Chicken Barbecue. But this is different. This is Bobby Flay's recipe or rather Bobby Flay's mother-in-law, Laura's recipe :)

Apple, Bacon and Pecan Salad

I had three strips of streaky bacon leftover after cooking fried rice for my partner. I thought of making something naughty but just three strips is not enough. And just my luck, bacon was totally sold out at the Pearl Pork outlet at Aeon. Sold out, imagine that. It looks like nobody cares about their arteries anymore.

Kay Hong Version 2.0 (Terengganu Braised Chicken Version 2.0)

OK. Confession time. A few years ago in the midst of preparing to cook Kay Hong, I realised to my horror that there was barely half a tablespoon of taucheow (beanpaste) left in the bottle. Yaarrghh!!!! The pork belly, chicken and other ingredients were all ready including the prized hard boiled eggs.

Chef Wan's Walnut Prune Cake

I simply had to attempt this recipe again. Why? Because the last couple of times, I made a mistake in both attempts.

Apple Cranberry and Raisin Cake

Last week I baked Apple Apricot Cake again for my Mum to sample. Mum was so enamored by the cake that she requested me to bake the cake for her to take home to Terengganu. Of course I happily obliged. But I only had about 50g of dried apricots left from the bake and being the stingy person that I am, I was reluctant to buy another batch hah..hah...
