Lemon Bars

This recipe had been queue-up for long time in my trying list, but sometime i would prefer trying fancy and not-so-easy recipe rather than the simple one. Yesterday, i went through my trying list again and i attempted to bake it almost immediately hehee....
It is very easy and simple yet awfully delicious. I purposely cut down the sugar to keep the strong sourish lemon flavor, since i'm a big fan of lemon.
Recipe from Stephanie Jaworski at

Chocolate Swiss Roll

Hi hi.... i'm comeback again with my "new skill" in making swiss roll i really excited about it. I made chocolate swiss roll today and the sponge cake turned a bit dense due to over pressing while it is still warm. I should let it cool before rolling next time.
It still taste yummy however. All the ingredients and instruction are same with the previous vanilla swiss roll, i only reduce the amount of flour, adding cocoa powder and extra sugar.

Vanilla Swiss Roll

Finally!!!! after 7-8 attempts, here come the result. Yes, this is my very first success swiss roll, the rest went to the garbage bin. I was jumping up and down in my kitchen till sister call me seng cing ping hahaa...
Recipe come from Aunty Yochana It called for ovalette/cake stabilizer, but i omit it since i run out of stock, it still turn out beautifully and best of all, this recipe did not require folding method which to me is kinda dreading job.
Yipeee.... i can make Christmas log for this coming Christmas.

Potato and Ham Cream Soup

I love trying many varieties of soup, beside it's easy to make, i can easily run it down the drain without "amused" my annoying sister, if i'm fail. She always laugh at me whenever i failed in baking my cake or buns(most of times are buns and swiss roll hahaa....) and you see, i don't really care about it.
I failed over and over and i just let her laugh over and over too.
This soup contain a lot of low calorie fiber which is good for diet(actually i'm not into diet anymore) and some vitamin c from celery. I won't talk about the potato since all of u already know about carbohydrate and starch hidden in potatoes. So, i'll just write down the recipe


1 medium potato
1/2 cup diced ham
2 cups diced celery
1/2 large onion, diced
3 cups milk
3 cups clear broth
1/2 cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste

-Put potato, onion, celery and ham in a medium pan, add 3 cups broth and bring to boil, cover pan and cook until potato soft. Mix all purpose flour with milk, stir in to the soup and continue stirring until soup thicken. Taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley flake when serving.

Spicy and Yummy Beef

Actually, this is my 2nd time of cooking this delicious and spicy beef. I did not get chance to capture the 1st one coz it gone as soon as it done (it was dinner time and i have some friends around) and thats doesn't matter at all coz i know i would cook it again and again.
It seems, i'm addicted to spicy food more and more. Meal without spicy "stuffs" is tasteless now, but sometimes when you cook pasta and etc, there's no way you going to serve it with something like.....SAMBAL. Right?
Thanks to Mba Retno for the recipe, and here is the English version with slight modification.


800 g beef (tender part)
1 tbsp ground corriander
1/2 cup tamarind water

Spice to grind:
15 small red chili
4 big red chili
1/2 big red onion
6 cloves garlic
1 tbsp sugar

-Slice meat into 1 cm thick, then pound it with meat pounder till they're almost flat. Marinate with ground coriander and tamarind
water for 2 hours, then bake at 180° C until color has changed. Deep fry in hot oil till brown and set aside.
Heat a tbsp oil and saute all the spices, add meat and taste with salt. Continue stirring until almost dry. Serve warm with plain rice....yummy.

Quick Spaghetti With Bockwurst

I have either spaghetti or dry noodles for lunch/dinner at least once in a week. I'm a big fan of it. Most of time, i buy it outside since i'm not so good in cooking both spaghetti or noodles.
What about noodle soup? Honestly, i hardly eat it!! In the beginning it's very delicious(especially beef noodle soup) but after 5 minutes passed, it will turn to be something like "worm swam in the water" and it is so yuck.
Back to the spaghetti, here's my quick and easy version recipe.

250 g spaghetti, cook as directed
2 bockwurst, sliced
3 bacon, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp mixed herbal seasoning
1 tsp chili flake
2 tbsp toasted pine nut
2 tbsp olive oil
salt, as required

- Heat olive oil, saute garlic over low fire till fragrant, add in bacon and sliced bockwurst, stir till bacon dry. Add spaghetti, season with salt, chili flake and mixed herbal, mix well and sprinkle with pine nut. Serve immediately. Best goes with cream soup.

Black Glutinous Rice Cookies

These cookies are modification from my recent cheese cookies i only substitute half of sago flour with black glutinous rice flour, which also very hard to find in Taiwan. So, i attempted to make my own flour, since the rice easily available. Using vitamix high performance blender, it took less than 10 minutes to mill the rice into flour.
I was thinking about milling my own sago flour, but where can i get the sago palm..??? hahaa... kidding.

It's Meme Time

I've been tagged by SSB with this meme yesterday, but only got chance to post it today. I'm about to write this last night, when J come up and we have long conversation till midnight and went to bed afterwards. I never write any meme before and this is the 1st one. Thank you SSB.
Here are the rules:

1. Link to my blog (tagger) on your blog.
2. Write seven facts about yourself.
3. Tag another seven bloggers by leaving a comment on their blogs and letting them know they were tagged and listing them (and their blogs) on your blog.

And here are 7 facts about me:

1. I hate TV since i was small, i would rather read books than sitting boringly in front of the tv, and somehow, i'm addicted to tv series titled "篮球火 / basketball fire" now, starred by "good looking" Jerry Yan

2. I love my mom&dad more than anyone else, i used to cry if they are away for more than a day, back when i was in primary school.

3. Couple years back, as a teenager, i love racing so much and crossing red light is become my bad habit. Once, i race with a friend at 2 a.m. and ended up in hospital with stiff neck and blueblack all over my body

4. I love wearing casual outfit rather than formal one. I've been kicked out of office by my boss, when i wear t-shirt and "supershort" short to work.

5. My both hands are trembling and shaking terribly(which i have no clue why), and thats become the main reason of my blur photography.

6. I hate morning wake up, always active in my free time, but feel super tired or sleepy when its working time.

7. I learn and enjoy cooking/baking so much, though sometimes it ended up out of expectation.

And now, i'm going to pass this meme to the following friends(though i know, some of them maybe not really interested in this):

1. Mba Judith
2. Mba Retno
3. Rita
4. Ponpon
5. Kinta
6. Emma
7. Nolla

Repost if you've got spare time and have fun :)

Baked Enoki Mushroom and Bacon

Another fast and easy yet delicious dish and it can be ready in less than 15 mins. All u need to do is clean the mushroom and discard the bottom cluster, wrap with a piece of bacon and bake for 10 minutes. When it done, sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Some people say, washing the mushroom is not necessary. But since i'm sure it had been touch by i don't know what kind and how many hands, i'll wash the mushroom 5-6 hour earlier and drain it in the dry place, so it won't be too watery when cooked.

Yummy Cheese Cookies

I've been dying to bake this cookies since long long ago, and the only problem is the flour. Sago flour is used in this cookies, which i can't get in every corner of baking supply store and supermarkets.
Till last week when i phoned my mom, she told me that hun kwe flour is also made from aren/sago flour. The cookies remind me of my childhood, mom used to buy it for me and brothers and we'll fight over the cookies till the last piece....
Recipe from Stella slightly modified by me

300 g sago flour/hun kwe
50 cornstarch
50 all purpose flour
225 g butter
125 icing sugar
3 egg yolk
100 g gouda/edam cheese powder
50 g cheddar cheese powder

- Sift sago, cornstarch and all purpose flour together . Cream butter and sugar till pale and fluffy, add in egg yolk one by one and beat till well combined. Stir in cheese powder and sifted flour.

Indonesian Honeycomb Cake / Bika Ambon

Few days ago, J was talking to me about this cake. Indonesian call it Bika Ambon, originally come from Medan, big city in northern part of Sumatra. I don't know why they call it bika ambon, where Ambon located nowhere in/near Sumatra.
And he challenge me again whether i can make this cake. This time, it's really a "challenge" since i've never eaten bika ambon in my life.
Browse and search the recipe, most people said the process of making this cake is difficult and complicated. Finally i ended up in this site and decide to use their recipe since it's the simplest one compared to others. I substitute the sago flour with hun kwe flour which also made from Aren. Aren is Indonesian name for sago palm.
The cake turned out to be very nice and it has beautiful honeycomb texture, soft and chewy with strong flavor of lime leaves+coconut milk+egg yolk. I couldn't get a nice shot of the cake due to poor lighting in my kitchen (and super cheap digicam too)

Layered Cake

My 1st attempt of making layered cake which contain lots of egg yolk. The layers are messy and doesn't seem stick to each other properly. I should get layered cake presser perhaps(which i dunno how it looks).
I went to my laptop when baking the second layer and i've forgotten that i have something to watch in my oven, till my fire alarm screaming loudly, telling me that my cake is BURN. Goshh...i almost burn the whole kitchen and the whole apartment.
For instruction and recipe click here. I do skip the crystalized pineapple and pineapple essence since i dunno where to buy it and substitute the red coloring with pandan essence instead.

Red Bean Flaky Mooncake & 中秋节

中秋节快乐 - happy mid-autum festival for all who celebrate it!!! (it is late, this should be yesterday's entry)
Here is my first mooncake ever, everyone posted their best and cute variation of mooncakes, and this is the best i can do(look at my terrible shaping skill hahaa...). Thanks to aunt Yo again for the recipe.
I am so tempted to make those beautiful mooncakes too, but dunno where to get the ingredients. Poor me...
We (and no one in Taiwan, i guess) don't light up those beautiful lantern and BBQ on the rooftop like last years, due to terrible typhoon and pouring rain outside. A girl was blown away by the typhoon, while another 2 or 3 cars fell down into the river while they drive over the bridge and the bridge collapsed. Till now, nobody knows their fate. Feels so sorry to them and all the typhoon's victims.
