Needs to reorganize
Nov 30th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Whoah! I’m overwhelmed by all the things that need organizing to start fresh. My phone needs it. My computer needs it, my camera needs organizing too.

But I think I need to do this first.

Our old photos.

I’d put them in the gigantic photo album and this reminded me that we need a good scanning software so we have soft copies of all these. Ooh. We have a lot of real funny photos here I can’t wait to show my cousin JR. We have a photo when we were around 5 with no teeth or are they brown teeth? Haha funny. Memories.

Tiny Raisin Cinnamon Rolls
Nov 18th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I know this doesn’t look tiny but it’s diameter is only 5 inches. I love this! The cinnamon rolls I baked last year was the regular size I guess, which is too big for one person to finish and I realized some factors which I could improve.

First, of course is the size. Aside from the reason mentioned above, I think rolls this size is just sooo cute! That’s from a person who likes things in smaller scale. Second, is the moistness and softness of the bread. This one is way way better. Third, is the sweetness. The batch last year was too sweet. So I adjusted that this time. And lastly, I added a light frosting which helps retain moistness and add taste.

Cinnamon Buns
Nov 17th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I want to bake this again. I baked and then deliver this to my Nanay (who’s my grandmother) last year. I’m planning to re-do this but this time I’ll make lots of tiny buns. 🙂 I don’t know if I should wait for Black Friday to buy all my kitchen needs and of course I Phone 4, I Pad… Of course they’d be great gifts but I would need to be very rich to give them away so my tiny raisin cinnamon rolls would be just as good as gifts. But I would definitely love to receive an Ipad as a gift hehe.

Kung Pao Chicken
Nov 13th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Since I was having cravings for Kung Pao Chicken (KPC) recently, I opened a bottle of ready made sauce and researched recipes about it. This is quite nice but didn’t taste like the ones I eat in Sg. But this is good too, perfect with lots and lots of rice heheh. Hint of sweetness. Spicy too. Spicy foods is one of my versions of diet pills that work fast. Revs up my metabolism so I don’t feel as guilty eating cups and cups or rice. But I should stop! I know I know. I’ve been bad.

Devil’s Chocolate Cake
Nov 13th, 2010 by niceyfemme

This is a slice from the cake I baked for the small celebration at home.

How yummy looking is that? 🙂

I’m so happy to have found the perfect recipe for my taste and I guess our guests like it very much from their praises.

Better than wine, better than ice cream, better than backwoods cigars. I’m drooling just looking at this. Yey!

Sauteed Squash and Baguio (Fava) Beans with Prawns
Nov 11th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Is love. More so because this is cooked by Mommy. 🙂

The squash so creamy and sweet. Simple food like this is what we should all be eating to be healthy. And I’m going back there after being ‘rebellious’ if you know what I mean. 😉

A Little Celebration
Nov 8th, 2010 by niceyfemme

These past days had been busy and tiring. We had a little kind of  impromptu celebration at home and just invited a few people. Biglaan talaga. So in a day we did all the cooking until past midnight and the kids stayed here so we’ve been deprived of sleep but thanks to my reliable black out curtains and blinds, I’m still able to sleep until the sun is up to regain energy..

So we just whipped up a few dishes, baked this cake and prepared a salad.

This chocolate cake is by far the best tasting with oozing chocolatey flavor, best looking cake I have ever baked ever with minimal effort. I love how the design turned out pretty ok when I thought when I was doing it that it’s a big fail. I lost my offset spatula and piping bag, no cake board (this is placed in a plate), no chocolate to use so I melted little chocolate kisses and no reliable recipe to depend on so I baked by my gut feel. Then after all that it’s still a success. Nice. And best of all, even I can’t stop eating this. Wow.

Guests thought this is store bought. Love it when that happens hehehe. I love it when they rave about our food.

Spiral Curry Puff
Nov 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

One of my favorites in Singapore is Old Chang Kee’s (OCK) Curry Puff.  Almost everyday I’ll have this, well I can’t help it when I see an OCK outlet I have buy one or two or if not this then their popular chicken wing then.

Three different levels of doneness.

When I’m in Singapore I miss Filipino foods and when I’m in the Philippines I miss my Singapore favorites. So when bad as in real bad cravings hit, I have to do something, so I will have to try to make it myself.
