So as mentioned in the previous post, layered chocolate fudge cake left me with plenty of buttermilk. So I decided to make some buttermilk pancakes. Not too bad, I might want to eat this again. But probably I’ll sift the flour first. And probably I’ll buy some maple syrup to eat it with. But nonetheless, a very fluffy and pleasant pancake.
Grandma’s been making this since I’m young. In love with my grandma’s version since I’m young. Finally grandma taught me how to make it. Hooray. Continue reading
Most asians (I think) nowadays have a rice cooker at home to cook rice because rice is such a staple. But over in my house, we do not use a rice cooker. We use this magic cooker thermal pot thing so we’ll have to cook the rice on a stove first before putting it into the thermal pot. The whole point is to save energy (aka gas bills) because the rice just needs to be around half-cooked and putting it into the thermal pot (which doesn’t use any electricity at all) will do the rest of the cooking. Therefore, I am quite familiar with cooking rice without using a rice cooker and am rather proud of this fact haha. Most of my friends of around my age do not really know how to do it so let me boast a little and show how it is done.
This draft has been lying around since October and it’s time for me to finish it up haha. Not really enthusiastic about this post because the photos I took are quite meh (took them early in the morning with no great morning sun and rushed through so that I can start eating) Continue reading
So it was my mother’s birthday a few days ago and since it was the Christmas season and I was feeling rather jolly, my sister and I decided to whip up a birthday meal for my mother, featuring this awesome roast chicken.
So I was tasked to cook dinner for my family the other day. Usually, dinner means a few dishes like stir-fried vegetables + stir-fried vegetables + stir-fried meat + soup + rice and this is one such dish that appears on my family’s dining table.
First week of school just zoomed pass and I’m feeling quite busy already! Lots of readings to read and lecturers’ accent to get used to haha! I quite like the modules I’m taking this semester, especially Environmental Economics. It is soooo interesting! (Even though there’s a stack of readings and the whole module isn’t organised like the other modules). Okay I’m trying hard to make this relevant to the pesto penne… SO! I have had a fairly busy week and this simple pesto meal really made things less complicated (I’m having some expression issues but you get the drift hahaha)! Continue reading
