Chicken Pie With Caramelized Onion Crust


Pies and tarts are good tea snacks and after dinner dessert .  I love making them when the kids are around. Josh was back for two weeks and this chicken pie using caramelised onion crust is something to sing about. The fragrant crust is a good complement for chicken pie. When I first saw this recipe from Marc's blog  No Recipes I knew I had fallen  in love with the crust at first sight and since then I have been making this crust for our tarts and pies...yummy !

I know I have been drooling and drooling at Piggy's blog - Piggy Cooking Journal for the past year and have listed down a few of her bakes to try out and have added them to my to do list. And now finally, I managed to find the time to bake this one out and OMG..it was one delicious and delectable cake that I am sure you will want to try it out yourself. I picked up some USA peaches and blueberries from  Jusco  and tada... this is the outcome ! I used peaches instead of nectarine .  A wonderful and tasty peach and blueberry cake.....recipe stolen from Piggy's blog. We are fated to love the same recipe :p  Thank you, Piggy for sharing this delectable goodness. Read on for the recipe :)  You can guess who are the lucky persons to get to eat this delectable cake.....yessss.....they are....

Moist Banana, Dates & Nuts Muffins



I love muffins especially those moist and yet light ones. Having 2 boxes of dates at home ( the boss gave the staff each 2 boxes ) During the fasting month it is a blessing to give than to receive, but for me it is a blessing to receive these delectable sweet dates. I decided to use them in my muffins together with the ripe bananas at home . Added some brazilian nuts to it and the result ... moist banana, dates and nuts muffins . I love cakes with bananas and for this time I added some chopped dates and nuts to make it more delectable. For extra fragrant add in some nutmeg powder if you like :)
