From my Kitchen .... German Cookies

Chinese New Year is coming soon... and since today is a Public Holiday, I make myself comfortable at home by baking CNY cookies. As usual , I always go for something simple and easy to make and today I am baking "German Cookies".


Let me share with you the recipe :

Ingredients :
A) 250 gr butter ( I used WestGold )
     80 gr   icing sugar
B) 250 gr potato flour
     100 gr plain flour ( I used BlueKey brand - superfine flour )

Methods :
1. Mix A together, stir in high speed till fluffy.
2. Add in B and mix well. It is advisable to keep the dough in the fridge for about 1-2 hours.
It will help to make the dough firm and easy to make the round shape.
3. Make into small round shape, press lightly with a fork.
4. Pre-heat the oven , bake the cookies for 170'c for about 15-20 mins.

Note : Never add flour to increase the hardness of the dough.

From my Kitchen..... Lime Cheesecake

Although I have been quite busy lately, I tried to squeeze some times to do baking in my kitchen. Of course, I will opt for something simple to make and it does not consume lot of my time in preparation.
My hubby passed me this "Non-baked Lime Cheesecake" recipe the other day...I started to get ready all the ingredients and get my kitchen project done within an hour.

Since it is a  non-baked cheesecake,  I have to wait for overnight to get the result.....the next morning, I quickly opened my fridge and looked at the cheesecake, bit soft on top...so I never touch and let it be inside the fridge for a few more hours.
Only when I came back home in the afternoon, I cut a slice and gave it a try, the lime flavour was not strong enough (next time I should more lime for flavouring). Overall, I should say this cake taste good.

Chinese New Year is coming soon and now I am starting to bake CNY cookies.As for the cake, I still considering what cake to bake. Anyone mind to share with me some simple recipe for CNY cake?...

Dodol...a sweet food from Indonesia

This is another backdated post....

Have you ever heard about this food named DODOL. During my trip back to Medan last Nov, my mom passed me this sweet food Dodol to bring back to Sibu. Actually I don't really like dodol because I find it it too sweet for me. Since I have not been eating dodol for a very long time, I don't mind to have one with me.
For me, I fridged it overnight ,then only I ate it...at least it tasted better,not that sweet.
I let my hubby tested on it.....ehmmm, not bad. He loves the taste.

For those who want to know more about Dodol food, drop to this link for more info.

Welcome 2013........

First of all....I would like to wish all my friends " Happy Belated New Year".

This year is definitely a busy day for me as I started to teach tuition during weekends (fri,sat and sat) at one of the tuition centre.
After quitting from my last job more than 7 years ago,...now I am back to the working life again. Pretty tiring for me especially when I have to teach those small kids.Weekdays is my rest day and when come to weekends, I have to get myself ready for the "war" again.

As for Ryan, he is entering a new school for his K2, I am glad that he is enjoying his new school life and so far he is doing well there. But he needs to wake up earlier than last year and have to reach the school before 7.30am (lesson starts at 7.30am).

As for me, the most tiring day for me is Saturday because I have 3 classes on that day. By the time I finish my last class, the clock has stroke 9pm and by the time I reached home, it is about 9.30pm.
My students are mostly from Pri 1, Pri 2 and Pri 3. Some of them can read very well but some of them can't even read simple English words. I am putting my best effort to teach them and hope it will show an improvement in their English.

Stay tuned for my next post.......
