Murtabak Roti Berkeju

Star Q

My wife had made a batch of currypuffs the other day and she purposely made the filling more than the pastry because one of our family members really love to snack on the curry filling.  However, she made the filling a little bit too much because that family member of ours decided she had had too much of the filling to snack on.

Fried Zucchini with Chicken

Star Q

It has always been a bad habit of mine to buy things that I don't want to use immediately.  I always buy things, foodstuffs especially, at the spur of a moment, thinking that I may not be able to buy the things especially when the things I buy I not readily available.

During the second half of this year I was fortunate enough to have been asked to attend three phases of courses which enabled me to get to know a couple of interesting people from the different states in Malaysia, including some very interesting individuals from Sarawak.

Peach and Cheddar Cheese Cake

Star Q

I always find excuses to try out new recipes, and the arrival of a guest to our home is one of those excuses.  Actually I had been helping my wife prepare all the dishes for lunch and the only thing left was dessert, so I guess it was my duty to prepare it.

Caramalised Bananas with Butterscotch Sauce

Star Q

As with every recipe which is created out of necessity, this banana recipe went through the same process.  We had a comb of ripe bananas hanging near the window sill for a few days and no one seemed to want to eat them.

Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Frosting

Star Q

I am a weekend baker!  And it has been quite some me since I baked because my weekends have been occupied with tonnes of activities.  There was a weekend when my family and I went all the way to Seremban because someone wanted to buy a new pair of clothes.  Another weekend we went to Seremban to visit my father-in-law who was admitted to hospital.  All these plus the fact that the weekends seem to be getting shorter and shorter to me.

Sesame Roasted Chicken Wings

Star Q

There are monthly editions of cookery magazines offering readers opportunities to try their recipes.  I must admit that I have tried a few of them but most times I am skeptical about the list of ingredients of most of the recipes given.
