Having tried my hand at making sausage rolls and pizza, I was on the look out for a good bread recipe. Not long ago, I chanced upon a simple and easy bread recipe called “soft raisin bread” from Daily Delicious.
This recipe uses a sweet bun dough which is similar to the sausage rolls recipe I tried earlier except it does not use egg and sausage. You just need to shape the dough into balls instead...

Scone is a small British quickbread of Scottish origin. The original scone was round and flat, usually the size of a small plate. It was made with unleavened oats and baked on a griddle, then cut into triangle-like quadrants for serving. Today, scones sold commercially are usually round in shape but homemade scones have taken into various shapes: triangles, rounds and squares.
What is a good scone?

(My night project with cocktail sausage fresh from the oven)
I always wish that I can make some bread and rolls for my family since we eat them for breakfast almost every day. As we say a wish is still a wish if no action is taken. But when I chanced upon Elinluv’s blog, I was so inspired with her success story in making sausage rolls (originated from dailydelicious). What makes me even keener in trying out...

When I first saw the healthy baked donut from Little Corner of Mine, I was so excited to know that you can bake donut instead of deep-frying it. A healthier choice for my son who loves donut so much. Even more interesting is this recipe uses yogurt instead of milk and yeast. As a novice at baking, I personally find this recipe pretty simple and easy-to-follow. No electric mixer is required either.

Before posting the photos I shot in Penang, I would like to begin my 2009 posting with a food recipe.
Do you like salad? I never have a chance to made one so far as my Emperor is not supportive enough for this idea. But after all the Christmas and New Year festive celebrations, I desperately need one now. Remember what I mentioned in my last post? It is my 2009 New Year resolution! As we know, another festive...

During our childhood days, this pancake was made from the leftover batter used for french toast or pan-fried nian gao (Chinese New Year glutinous rice cake). It was always a hit in the family. Due to the limited supply, we always walloped the pancake first even though it was still hot from the pan.
Nowadays, it has become a hit to all my nieces and nephews too. For those who are staying overseas, my mother...

As mentioned in my early post, when I first made zucchini cakes, I didn’t have a large zucchini so it didn’t turn out close to the original recipe I followed. This round, with a large zucchini on hand and adding 1 extra egg, I made a revisit to this recipe. For recipe, please refer to here.
If you have a picky eater who refuses to eat vegetables, give it a try. But remember to control the amount...

Since I started cooking for the family, I used a lot of tomatoes in our meals because they are my little “big” boy’s favourite. He can eat any types of tomatoes be it raw or cooked, with or without skin, with or without seeds. In short, he is a TOMATO lover!
Generally most of us know that tomato contains lycopene (the red pigment in...

After making some California hand rolls, I had half an avocado sitting in my refrigerator. So I used it to make a quick and easy teatime dessert for my son. He ate so fast even before I had finished washing up all the dishes used in the preparation! He claimed that he was not full and ate the remaining half of the banana. Then he grinned at me and said, “It tastes good, mommy!”
Ingredients:½ ripe avocado2-3...
