Banana Crumb Muffins

What shall I write now? That's what's been playing around in my mind at this moment. And yet, I have 3 blogs of my own! Huhuhuhu...But you know what... actually this morning, when I was busy with the house chores, I have loads of ideas pouring into my mind, only I don't have time to jot them down. Now that everything's done and I have a few hours to myself before bedtime, all are gone, vanish into thin air......

Huh...I'm tired and I don't think I can think anymore. So let's just skip the ramblings for today and straight to 'The Recipe To Share' section, shall we... This time, I'll share this top recipe in Allrecipes, posted by Lisa Kreft. Thank you Lisa.... The recipe was nice and I made twice the very same day and was much enjoyed by both group of visitors who came to visit my mom... Here's for you to try....

Sayur Campur-Campur (Sambal Goreng)

If for the past 46 years (the least), 22nd February is a happy day for us.... but not today. Everything has changed. Today, it's a sombre day for our family. Today is Abah's birthday.....

This morning I mopped the house and ironed the clothes. Why? Besides reason being 'IT'S ABOUT TIME!!', those two chores makes me remember abah even more. I was known as the 'bibik' of the house by abah and mak because I am the one who took care of the mopping section. Everytime I finished mopping, abah will said, "Bersih lantai rumah ni. Sedap kaki nak pijak" (translation : The floor is so clean and nice to step on).. how I missed that phrase.... And why ironing...besides reason being "my pile of un-ironed clothes are as tall as KLCC", abah was the one who taught me how to iron gent's shirt and trousers the proper way! Thank you abah for everything......I had a wonderful 42 years being your daughter just because I had such a wonderful abah..........Al-Fatihah...



Recipe to share today will be our family's favourite. I got the recipe from mom. It's a Java recipe actually. My mom does not have Java blood in her but my abah has (Am I considered mixed-blooded then? Hahahaha..) So she must have gotten this recipe from her late mother-in-law I guess... Well, mom called it "Sayur Campur-campur" (Mixed Vegetable) but my Mak Busu said it's called Sambal Goreng. Whatever the name is, it's not that important to me. What I care the most is, it's yummilicious.....

Chocolate Brownies

It's not always whatever we planned will turn out the way it should be. Sometimes the result will be much better than expected but otherwise, a disastor! Good if it turned out great but if it's disastrous, then you have to think fast and be extra creative to cover the failure, if it's possible that is! Hahaha... Speaking of failure, a few weeks ago, I, for the very first time, tried using my brownies tray with cutters which I had bought quite sometime back. And using a new recipe without reading the feedback about the recipe. My brownies overflowed from the tray, not that much though but since it had rised quite a bit, so the cutters were 'buried' in the brownies. It was a job to take out the cutters, resulting to a tray of broken brownies...err can we even call it brownies? I doubt it... hahahaha...

To make things worse, I had done the brownies for my mom's visitors, our neighbour when we were very young. Aunty Asbah came with her daughter who is the same age as me and happens to be my school mate. When they arrived, I was busy in the kitchen, having a hard time handling the brownies. Managed to get a few pieces of so-called-brownies and the rest... huhuhu... undescribable! I served the few not-so-bad-looking-brownies and start thinking of what to do with the rest. Alhamdulillah, something popped in my mind and I ended up with these....



..........not bad huh??!!! Mind you, it's not the recipe to be blamed, but me, who doesn't study properly how to use the cutters.....

Well, that pleasant failure doesn't put me off. I still have the guts to try out another brownies recipe. But this time, I used the recipe recommended by Mak Lang . Thank you Mak Lang for your continuous encouragement and support. May Allah bless you....

Made this brownies for Azlina. Thank you Lin for ordering with me. I am much relieved when Lin is satisfied with the brownies... Alhamdulillah....

Happy Birthday Pak Busu



Another birthday? Yes, this time it's my Pak Busu's birthday today (18th February)... HAPPY 5*' th BIRTHDAY PAK USU! It is my great pleasure to be able to bake some cupcakes for him as I have not been decorating cupcakes for quite sometime. So this is somewhat like a melepas gian kind of thingy. So I baked for him some lemon cupcakes and later transformed them into these......


Why so bland mama? A few reasons for that....
i. Not enough time
ii. Not enough preparation
iii. Not enough ideas
iv. Not creative
....and all that reasons are just to cover the TRUTH about MamaFaMi, which is DOESN'T HAVE THE TALENT TO ICE CAKES! Hahahaha...

What really touched my heart was the look on his face when he saw the box of cupcakes which my aunty presented to him. He has the same expression like my abah used to have. The expression that says...alahai, terima kasihlah banyak-banyak.. buat susah susah aje... I really miss that look of my abah.......



Cupcakes order? Yes!!! Thank you Mak Chu, for ordering these for her office. I had fun decorating them... Speaking of cupcakes deco, a few days ago, I was chatting online with a cupcake sifoo . I told her that I am lousy at making swirls with buttercream. She had asked me, what nozzles did I use? And I told her a few of the nozzle numbers that I used. Then she said,"Eh peliknya nombor nozel awak. Kita tak pernah dengar pun". Hahaha... So as a conclusion, don't blame me for not having talent to ice the cakes or cupcakes. Blame it on my nozzles!!!! Hahahahahahahaha.....

Since I am running out of time, I'll skip the 'Recipe to Share Today' part, till my next entry. Not that I have not been doing stuff. Infact, I had been doing quite a good number of 'experiments', just waiting to be shared. Sabar ye kerana sabar itu sebahagian dari iman!

Till then, take care!

Blueberry Marble Bread

I love to bake breads. I just can't resist to try any bread recipes (the ones that I find interesting and challenging!) that I came across either in the internet, magazines or in my cookbooks. And that passion will increase when my dear daughter is around. She loves eating bread, especially the ones that just came out of the oven! She can smell the bread aroma a mile away! Hahahahaha..... When I saw her enjoying the freshly baked buns... all my effort is worthwhile! I miss you gegirl.....

But it's not always, all my experiments will turn out the way I want it to be. Not all of my experiments are excellent... some are even disastrous!!! Like recently, before I tried this one, I had tried another challenging recipe. It was a job actually, to prepare the bread and what did I get in the end.... a heavy bread... or can I even call it bread???? Hahaha... My mom felt pity for me. All my effort was a waste, she had said. If you had taken a nap instead of trying to bake the bread, you won't be that tired! What she doesn't know is, the more I take naps, the more I'll feel tired!!!! Hahaha... Anyway, I think, the yeast is the culprit! Therefore, I sentenced it to be dumped into the dustbin! ***Hahahaha*** (evil laugh!!!) But that doesn't put me down. I still have my strong willpower to try out bread recipes.... chaiyok mama!!!

Enough said, here's the recipe if anybody care to take the challenge.... good luck to you..... And oh, where's my manners. Thank you Onigiri of MyResipi for this nice recipe. And sorry, I altered your recipe just to give some variety...

Anway, thank you for the lovely comment, and amin to that. I'll take that as a compliment ya... And thank you once again for the awards which I gladly brought back to my humble hut......

"It's so sad when mama wrote like that...make sabr... mama is considered strong to be able to cook this dish. Others may take years... The rendang should be nice if eaten with Pulut Kuning....."

I know I didn't translate it accurately but better than not translating at all huh! Hahaha...
