Roti Paung Version 2.0

I was quite pleasantly surprised to see my old post Roti Paung (Terengganu Butter Buns - Old School Method) on my sidebar. Some people saw it fit to make that their favorite post for the week (at the time of writing). Well, my foray into bun making started there. I was basically clueless then but had some training from my auntie whom I consider to be my sifu.

Milo Banana A Dream in Chocolate Cake

This cake, inspired by the Peanut Butter Banana Cake I baked previously, came about because (again) I needed to clear off some ingredients that were sitting idle in the fridge. Top priority was to use up an expensive organic dark chocolate spread which I bought just because it was on special offer.

Mad Cooking 4 : The Masak Lemak Cili Padi Wannabe

I shouldn't be posting this horrible mess. But what the heck! This Masak Lemak Cili Padi (MLCP) was doomed right from the get go. Just look at it. The gravy is thin and watery and those messy looking bits are the coarsely pounded spice paste. Gaarkk....

Giant Milo Nuggets and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted some giant cookies to serve with my Milo Ice Cream. This was of course inspired by the sundae I had at Every Sundae. Previously I used to think that baking giant cookies was madness. I mean, who eats a cookie that is as big as their face?

You have already had a preliminary tour of my Dad's garden here and I was rather amused when some of you commented that what you saw was an orchard or a farm hah..hah...

Pork Chili Verde

Most of us are familiar with Thai Green Curry. Apparently, the Mexicans also have something similar. This is Pork Chili Verde or Green Pork Chili. And now I must confess.

Milo Ice Cream

A few weeks ago, I was ambushed outside UOB Bank. "SURPRISE!!!!!!", cried a group of perky young people as they rushed towards me. What the fing-fing (this is my polite F word) is going on? It was not my birthday, that's for sure.

Coconut Ice Cream

After burning RM7.30 for 3 scoops of Sangkaya's coconut ice cream and then another RM10.50 for 4 scoops of the same just a day later (hah..hah...), I decided that enough is enough.

Finally, after 3 posts of me eating out, you get a baking post today. Relieved? I am sure you are. This auntie has not quit the baking department as yet.

Sugar Overload@Every Sundae

After lunch at Hokano, we adjourned to Every Sundae, a soft gelato bar. I spotted this place some months back when my partner and I were on our way to The Ship. Of course I wanted to pay Every Sundae a visit but I never did until now.

A Japanese Treat at Hokano (Closed)

Last Saturday, my brother and I took my auntie for a Japanese lunch. We did not go too far, choosing to dine at Hokano, my regular place for Japanese fare.

Super Rich Super Lemony Pound Cake

When I first started baking, one of my many firsts was a pound cake. I watched the Laura Vitale video and also the one from Joy of Baking. And I realized that a pound cake is essentially what we know as a butter cake. My auntie was not impressed with my pound cake to say the least. "It is very dense" she commented.

Ice Cream Cures Headaches

My boss sent me out on an errand. Hang on a second. Let me rephrase. I'm the boss and I sent myself out on an errand. No big deal, just a short but hot walk to Telekom to pay the office phone bill. My head was pounding. I was having a major headache. From stress at work. So a short walk out of the office was a welcome relief.
