I'm not a big fan of coconuts but a friend of mine made this and I now crave for it every now and then. Mom on the other hand, loves coconut. I am actually waiting for the coconut candy to cool now, so I might as well get this post up while I wait. My first time at this coconut candy though. If I don't get it right then we can learn from my mistakes, right? Will be posting step by step photos.
I made this once for Mom's birthday earlier this year and I like having fruits this way. I didn't use as many fruits but I am not fussy. Mom helped me buy some fruits (including cut fruits like honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelons) so I just used it all. I love how my boyfriend made full use of my fruit salad. Refreshing!
For our one night retreat, I planned for us to completely relax and unwind. My boyfriend only knew the location of our retreat without knowing exactly where we headed to and I requested that he marinate some meat for our BBQ dinner. That, and drive us to our retreat location. I chose the retreat location (it has been on my list for a few years ) and was in charge of making coleslaw and fruit salad in the food department.
My post on Penang, the Food Haven, was longer than I thought it would be so I will try my best to make this short and sweet. Sharing photos of graffities, Bukit Bendera (Penang hill) and other locations in Georgetown, Penang.
After my little Langkawi invasion, I decided to spend 2 nights in Penang, this time on my own, missing my food partner the whole time I was there. Here's a list of what I ate in Penang over two nights. I wished my partner was with me!
Our four night stay in Langkawi at the Resort World Langkawi; where we went and what we ate.
I love Croutons, on its own or with salad. Whenever our loaf of bread is about to reach expiry, mom would make croutons out of it. Its actually pretty simple, you just need the basic ingredients, an oven & you are good to go.
Got myself some strawberries from Cameron Highlands and a request for strawberry cheesecake! So I used one of the no-bake cheesecake recipe I tried before as the base for this strawberry cheesecake and Oreo crumbs instead of digestive biscuits for the base.
Nagasari is a local banana dessert that is steamed with rice flour and coconut milk. I love banana desserts and love it even more with coconut milk. You only need ingredients for this recipe - bananas, coconut milk, rice flour, corn flour, sugar and salt + banana leaves!
