Not for any good reasons I guess, mostly just having no inspiration to write stuff.
I've had some things that happened in between the last time I updated until now...like getting two of my wisdom teeth out, went on a short holiday, slapping people-- stuff.
...and procrastination. I've had some drafts but I never managed to post them yet.
I'll be having two hauls in one post maybe.
My KL haul and my Paloma haul (might add first impressions here and there)
I don't know if I've shared anything recently but if you follow my Twitter (I've deleted my old personal IG), I do share some of them on there.
Cooking's just therapeutic somehow. Last year I mostly learned to cook more stuff to prepare for possible married life, and just to see if I'm any good at cooking. I don't really cook Malay food though, I go for Western, or Eastern..I just find Malay food too oily for my liking.
AND I still don't know how to cook rice (mostly laziness to learn)
Well, here are some pics of food I've been happy with :)
I cook with no rules, I don't really measure...so I'm not a good baker.
|Attempted an old recipe, kinda overcooked it a bit but it was still edible!|
Followed Nigella's recipe, with slight adjustments.
|This one was a meatball/meat patty thing. It was really good.|
I forgot what spices I used though.
|Chicken marinade challenge with my mom.|
We both did a good job :D (but I prefer mine better 'coz it's thicker)
|I love baking cookies. There was a time where I just tested out different stuff.|
Measurements, ingredients, timing...etc.
Some hits and some misses.
|Potatoes, Cream and Cheese.|
Made with my sister. I was in charge of mandolin-ing the potatoes.
|Also made with my sister.|
Carbs on Carbs with Chicken.
It was really good!
|Wasabi Mayo Chicken Stuff.|
I really liked this one. I should make more of it.
People don't like the wasabi but I do!
|My sister's work of art.|
I helped too, of course! But it's mainly her recipe.
|This one followed OnePotChef's recipe :)|
Really love snacking on these.
|Another cookie experiment.|
Tried tweaking ingredients.
Added mint...didn't not like it LOL
|Chamchijeon (Tuna Pancakes)|
Really simple, really tasty!
|Tried making choux creme (cream puffs)|
The texture and taste was alright but the custard needs work.
Need to learn how to make the cream properly.
|This one was another experiment.|
Family approved but I found it too sweet.
Good texture though.
|My host mom's recipe for pasta salad :)|
Really missed eating this in Japan so I tried making it.
|My Muesli and Cream Cheese Cookies.|
LOVE THIS (and I can actually bake this consistently!)
|Steak with Mushroom Sauce ala Antam.|
Quite happy with this one. Family liked it too.
|Mushroom Risotto with a Sprinkling of Blue Cheese.|
It was missing something...hm.
I'm the official steak cook in this house now.
|I like mine medium but everyone likes it well done.|
I add blue cheese on mine, it's so creamy!
LOL. Why do I cook yellow stuff?! I guess it means I cook mostly carbs.
Not a lot of veggies huh? I generally don't cook them, I boil them or grill them lol
But yeah, ideally, I'd serve the steak with veggies, mash or couscous I guess.
But yeah, cooking is so fun.
If it's not attacking you anyway.
I kinda wanna ask for a pasta machine for my birthday, been wanting to make blue cheese ravioli lol
Maybe I will :3
Do you like to cook?
'til then, take care!
