Heart Shaped Honey Melon Konnyaku



If this doesn't melt his heart...I really don't know what will !  I made this for Daddy....a small token for all he has done for me especially endured all those one dish meal I cooked for him  :p   I served this together with his breakfast yesterday. I meant to spring a surprise on him but it didnt work  :(  he just ate without saying anything...not romantic at all ...hmpf wait , I am going on strike soon ...hang up my apron !  :)  just kidding....he loves them.  Truly a labor of love....first have to use a cookie cutter to cut out the heart shape, place them at the bottom of the heart shaped jelly mold , then cook the konnyaku...with lots of patient.   End result - a labor of love and patience all in one heart shaped konnyaku :))

Homemade Burger Bun



This is the first time I try my hands at making burger buns but second time using the water roux method. I will stick to this method for I find that the bun remained soft and fluffy even after a day old.  I took the recipe from Grace  of Kitchen Corner. Thanks Grace for this wonderful burger bun recipe.  You can go Elinluv's Tidbits Corner to drool and feast on my homemade beef burger :p

Cookies & Cream Cheesecake



As I browsed through  Martha Stewart's Cupcake book, I saw this delectable Cookies & Cheesecake and I knew I had to bake it for Josh.  He loves anything with chocolate in it. Oreo cookies cream cheesecake in  cuppies !  Something  different from the usual cuppies that I used to bake and I can't wait to show him something new...instead of the boring cuppies that I used to make for him * wink   I knew he will love these cookies cream cheese cuppies with the crunchy chocolatey base and creamy cheesy top . This  cuppies must be chilled before serving. A delectable mouth-watering after dinner dessert.....mmm and if I am not careful I will grow sideway soon :)  Matha Stewart is a very creative woman..instead of using cookies crumbs as base, she used the whole cookie as the base...and not only it is delectable but easy to prepare too !  I love watching her show...used to stay up late just to watch her cooking show :)

Savoury Corn Kernels & Bacon Bits Muffin



If you ask me to pick one, I would prefer a savoury muffin to a sweet muffin but both types are good for afternoon tea with a cup of hot apple tea. And whenever Josh is around I have to bake some goodies for tea time coz he loves to munch on chocolate cakes, buns or muffins. I chose to bake this savoury muffins for I have the ingredients at hand for this savoury muffins.  This is a delectable muffin and you can eat as many as you want , for it can be quite addictive. The bacon bits make this muffin so aromatic and flavorful and  packed with fresh corns and red and green capsicum making this one nutritious muffins for the young and old.
