Merry Christmas!

This is the delicious Mango Log Cake that I have for this year's Christmas. Ordered from Polar Puffs & Cakes. Didn't take a photo of it so I borrowed this picture from their website.

Meat Patties with Tomato and Chilli Sauce

Meat Patties with Tomato and Chilli Sauce

Trying to replicate one of the dishes my mum cooked. This is my second try with a slight improvement. Not bad.

My method of making: Mix minced meat with 1 egg -> marinate with salt and pepper -> drop tablespoons of the mixture in a non-stick pan -> pan-fry both sides till golden brown -> mix tomato sauce, chilli sauce with a little water -> add to the cooked patties and mix till the patties are well-coated with the sauce. DONE!

Steamed Chicken with Red Dates

Steamed Chicken with Red Dates

Another favourite of mine. Steamed chicken. Quick and easy. Recipe from Food For Tots. Very sweet with the red dates but I run out of wolfberries!

Ang Koo Kueh

I have some green bean filling left after making the Tau Sar Piah. Don't know what to do with it and it will be a waste to throw them away. My mother suggests making Ang Koo Kueh with it. She told me she has the Ang Koo Kueh mould at home. Wah... didn't know that. I don't even remember her making Ang Koo Kuehs before!

Amanda has made Ang Koo Kueh using her mooncake moulds. What a brilliant idea! You can take a look at her pretty Ang Koo Kuehs here. I used the same recipe as her taken from Florence’s blog.

My not-so-pretty Ang Koo Kuehs. I didn't add any red colouring so it's the natural colouring of the orange sweet potatoes. Haha! Finally have the chance to use the mould after keeping it for so many years! Actually, we have also found the Png Kueh mould too! :)

Looking for pineapple tarts recipe

I'm looking for a good pineapple tarts recipe. It must be tested and proven to be really really good. Can be your own recipe if you are willing to share it in my blog. Or let me know the link if it comes from a website or a blog. :)

I'm also looking for a good pineapple paste cos I don't think I want to make the paste myself. ;P Anyone knows where or which shop sells the best pineapple paste?

Hehe... thanks!
