Wednesday, October 15, 2008

this is one of my menu for my last night dinner party...and its eazy to make too ;)

what you need:

Puff pastry - store bought its much easier! i can give you the recipe if you're REALLY in the mood of making puff pastry..but i'll have to make the diagram for that coz when it comes to puff pastry its not just the recipe but the technic of making it that will make your puff PUFF... i recon you to just buy...but if not leave me your email.

1 egg white

1 -2 can of flaked tuna in olive oil.
a pinch of salt
some mayonise
a dash of black pepper
some finely diced onions
1 tsp of finely chopped chilli

decorations: finely sliced chilli and parsley or coriender leaves.

how to do it:
for the puff pastry..you need to cut a 3pcs of 2"x2" squares. cut a hole in the 2 of the puff using a cookie cutter. and leave the other one , that'll be the base. stack them gently and do not press. repeat for the others. then brush the pastry with egg whites wash. bake in pre heated oven at 200c. when done set a side.

for the fillings - mix all ingredients together.

To assemble - fill the tuna fillings in the hole of the puff pastry decorate it with the chilli and parsley.

Caramel Pudding Cake

This I have to give credits to yani from MYR. Its her recipe and its great to i highly recommend it! I made this for last night dinner party. the strawberry deco looks awful coz it was a last minute deco as i initially don't want to decorate it but when its done, it looks too plain for my liking. luckly i still have some leftover strawberries & kiwi but one problwm, i don't have any glaze so my mom she substitute the piping jelly with strawberry jem...the result is not as flattering...
the recipe you can check it here http://www.myresipi.com/top/detail/910

since most people here are rather confused with the competition rules...so here are the rules again...


  1. Anyone can enter this competition so long that he/she have a foodie blog.
  2. One may submit as many entry as one please.
  3. One must together with the pictures submit the recipes and explain on how you do/make it from A-Z. the more detail your explanation, the better (this may increase your chance of winning)
  4. As for the recipe it need not be yours, you may 'borrow' recipes from the net or whomever but please state the source. However we encourage you to use your own recipe (this would mean creating your own recipe) but you may also borrow others recipe but 'tweak' or 'fine tune' the recipe to make your own. All of these will be considered as points for your creativity!
  5. The recipe also should be complete (DO NOT OMIT any ingredients when you've actually used it) the consequence is that not only you'll be disqualified but you'll give yourself a bad name (we wouldn't want that would we?)
  6. All participants MUST publish the competition logo together with the entry. You may resize it as you see fit.
  7. Participants MUST leave their URL at the organizer's comment box (doesn't matter which) in order for me to valuate your entry. and I will publish all of the participants URL so that visitors can vote their fave entry.
  8. The entry will be judge by YOUR CREATIVITY i.e:
  • The food presentation
  • The recipes as per clause 3.
  • Pictures...(this is important coz pictures speaks a thousand words so better take good pictures!)
DUE DATE for submitting your entry :- 12NOV'08

Apple Custard Crumble

Monday, October 13, 2008

The other day our family friends came to visit us, we had Nasi Dagang (Terengganu style) coz we ran out of nasi dagang rice so we had to use the regular rice and made it Terengganu style. Then i've made this great apple crumble with custard that you could serve with vanilla ice cream and its a superb way to end a lovely dinner...and it was a crowd pleaser too everyone was impressed (not just because of the taste but also the presentation) its was a simple dish but with great impact...what more can u ask??
You need... (makes 6)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons vanilla custard powder
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 800g can pie apple
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 100g butter, softened
  • double thick cream, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine milk and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons custard powder, 2 tablespoons caster sugar and 2 tablespoons cold water in a heatproof bowl until smooth. Whisking constantly, pour in hot milk mixture in a thin stream. Return mixture to saucepan.
  3. Cook, whisking constantly, over medium heat until custard comes to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Stir for 3 minutes or until reduced slightly (this cooks out the raw custard powder flavour).
  4. Spoon apple into six 1-cup capacity dishes or one 6-cup capacity baking dish. Pour over warm custard.
  5. Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, remaining custard powder and sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Add butter.Using your fingertips, rub into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Scatter crumble over custard. Place on a baking tray bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with cream or in my case vanilla ice cream *wink*
