I've always enjoyed eating Portuguese egg tarts. Fell totally in love with it especially when I first tried the Lord Stow's Portuguese egg tart in Macau. Every mouthful of those rich and creamy egg custard paired with the tart pastry is just TO-DIE-FOR!
The first time I tried dry version of mee siam was many years back at a shop called Tea Shake Hut. It was love at first bite for me. I recalled the plate of yummy fried mee siam will also come with a piece of finger-linking-good chicken wing. This shop is now no more but I still enjoy a plate of fried mee siam or mee siam goreng at other stalls.
I bought a packet of mee siam goreng premix recently and whipped a Quick and EasyMee Siam Goreng meal for hubby and myself. I would never have thought of making my own mee siam goreng paste from scratch so I'm ever so thankful for such idiot-proof premix packaging.
I love munching on nuts. I've recently made a small batch of candied pecans to munch on and I must say it's really very addictive! I used brown sugar and spiced up the snack with some cinnamon and nutmeg powder. Gosh! The aroma in the kitchen is just unbelievably superb!
I made a batch of
bread buns for our breakfast and for my girl to bring to school for her
snack. I added purple sweet potato to the bun and had kaya as fillings
to the buns. Simply love the sight of purplish pink buns!
Raspberries have been on sale at the local supermarkets. I've always found these lovely berries so pretty and uplifting to look at! It was no wonder that I did not hesitate to buy a punnet of raspberries to include in my bakes for my gathering with friends during Singapore's Jubilee weekend.
