I wish I could say this is my bright idea. but it wasn’t. I saw this on Pinterest a while ago, but somehow couldn’t find the link back to the person who came up with this.
But at least, i managed to replicate it.
I used pandan flavoured waffles for this.
And topped it off with a starfruit.
Happy Christmas everybuddy!

I got the recipe for these steamed cupcakes from a forum i recently joined. This forum focuses on feeding your kids healthy, homemade meals. Which is why you don’t see baking powder and baking soda in the recipe.
To abide by the “heathy” context. I blended green suji leaves (A leaf usually used for food colouring) to give the cakes a bit of a green tinge.
The success of this steamed cake is judged from its surface. If the surface breaks and looks like a volcanic site. It means you did well.
I am glad for my mini volcanoes. Cause it means i did pretty okays! 😉
So i had a mini pre-christmas gathering yesterday. It was for a party of 10.
I would have loved to cook and bake myself silly. But i decided to abandon that over-ambitious idea. I decided it was almost impossible to be running back and forth from kitchen to baby’s room while food was cooking, or burning on the stove.
So i decided to bake. I decided it was less of a fire hazard for things to be baking in the oven rather than cooking on an open flame..
So here’s what we had.
1. A log cake
I have no inkling to the relationship between Christmas and log cakes. Why do people bake log cakes at Christmas?
I would have googled it, but really, i am too stoned right now to do anything productive.
Nevertheless, i followed cue. So, there was a log cake for my party.
2. Rudolph and Frosty
Now,at least, i know about these. Rudolph, Santa’s red nosed reindeer. And of course Frosty, the snowman.
While these are not the best looking pictures around, and i am seriously contemplating not putting any post about them up. I am glad i did it. Cause I’m sure, it will be something i would love to look at down the road =)
The initial plan was to have poached egg with hollandaise sauce this morning.
But while i scored at poaching the egg, i bombed on the hollandaise.
For the step by step, i followed smitten kitchen’s method of creating a vinegared whirlpool.
And what do you know? It worked 🙂
A sushi is like a sandwich to me. You can pretty much add whatever you fancy into it.
Or whatever you happen to have in your fridge.
I am running low on supplies.
So, it’s imitation crab sticks, tamago omelette, and lettuce for me.
Not the fanciest items around. But they still work like a charm.
