What are little girls made of....

Nutella Buns

I am a big nutella fan, and these buns are so fun to make and good to eat.

Fried Yong Tou Fu with XO Sauce

Try this, it is a easy to prepared and delicious dish, goes well with a bowl of steaming rice or porridge.. and my favourite chilli.. yummy!

Just lightly deep fry the yong tou fu items and leave aside, then fry some garlic in oil, add xo sauce, oyster sauce and a little water, pour cooked gravy over the yong tou fu. You can try using black bean paste instead of xo sauce too.

MeMe - Before I was a Mom

Thanks Baking Fiends United for passing on this Meme to me, its the first one I've gotten and I'm really excited about it... So here it is....

Before I was a mom, I am LBT.... Before I was a mom, I've never frequent the kids department stores... Before I was a mom, I dont check the labels of the food I'm buying... Before I was a mom, I would cook everything spicy... Before I was a mom, I dun know who is Barney... Before I was a mom, I've never handled babies and I've never thought I could do it...

Before I was a mom, I never knew that all I've ever wanted to be, is being a mom...

I would like to pass this MEME to another pretty mom... Caroline @ Ting Family

Chicken Sausage Bun

Meet my chicken sausage buns. I so pleased with it. They are simply so delicious when freshly out of the oven.

I've burnt my mixer again... my 3rd one since i started baking. I've been baking for almost a year already. When I started, I couldn't even bake a simple sponge cake.. I looked back on all my previous bakes, gave myself a pat on the shoulder and hope I get better in the years to come.

And I must also thank people (you know who you are) who have put up with some of my lousy bakes along the way... :) And many fellow food bloggers whom I have learned so much from... THANK YOU!

Roast Chicken Salad

I was feeling like having salad for dinner one day, and came up with this Roast Chicken salad served with Japanese dressing.

Actually, I cheated, I bought lettuces and black pepper roast chicken thighs from Cold Storage... and simply put them together, topped with some walnuts I managed to extract from my box of Banana nut crunch cereals. I wonder if I could still label this as Home Cook Meals.. hehe...
