Rainbow Salad Dishes

Hello!!!! Merry Christmas to all my blog reader. Although I do not know who are you but I sincerely wish you all the best for the coming 2008. Even though I had not being updating my blog entries regularly but I am very grateful some of you still check it time to time for my updates. Thank you so much! Hope that those existing recipes can add some collection to your cooking adventure.

Just to share with you these two simple healthy Vegetables and Fruit Salad Recipe that I always made during gathering. This round, I made these for Christmas Party appetiser to go with Ham or Turkey slice. You can use all sorts of fruits or vegetables that you can hold of as there is no restriction on what you have to use. For my vegetables salad I used ingredients such as:

1 Red & Green Coral Lettuce Each
150g Shredded Purple Cabbage
200g Thinly Shredded Carrot
200g Whole Kernel Corn
3 Hard Boiled Egg, cut into small cubes
1 Bottle of 237ml Kraft Coleslaw Dressing

1. Get ready all the vegetables in a big salad bowl, then top with the hard boiled eggs and drizzle as much dressing as you prefer. (for my quantity above i used the whole bottle of dressing)
2. Leave it in the fridge and you can serve it cold.
3. Before serving you can top with some toasted almond flakes or pine nuts to enhance the crunchiness and flavour.

a) You can used different flavour of dressing according to your preference like: Italian Dress, 1000 Island Dressing, Caesar Salad or etc.

For this Assorted Fruit Salad, I used a few kinds of tropical fruits and I dress it fruit yogurt instead of normal salad dressing. Almost all who tried this fruit salad find it very appetising and it's always the first dish to be wipe off on the table :)

2 Red Apples, cut into small cubes
1 Mango, cut into small cubes
1 Promangrante, remove the seeds
200g of Strawberries, cut into small cubes
1 Dragon Fruit, cut into small cubes
3 Ripe Avocado, cut into small cubes
1 Lemon Rind
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
400ml of Mango & Peach Yogurt

1. Combine all the fruits into a big salad bowl then add in lemon rind and juice then pour in the yogurt dressing and stir till combined.
2. Leave it in the fridge and you can serve it cold.

a) You can use different combined of fruits and fruit yogurt which will give you different flavour. (so far i find adding real mango with the used of mango & peach yogurt as base it the best result.)
b) You can use blueberries or cherries if they are available too. Posted by Picasa

Christmas Goodies

Wow... this is a very back dated post which I happen to saw it today when updating the blog. I had actually made these goodies for my Church Christmas Function. The division pastor actually calls me up and arrange for some of the group member to come over my house to exchange some baking skill on cupcake making.

I am really shock when he told me to teach them meebers on how to make a simple cupcake for Christmas event. But then since I am going away for holiday during that week, I don't have much time left to go through in details with them. So that few hours section at my place was really stress........as in they had to learn the basic skill of baking and frosting cupcake.

But before, our actually baking session began. I had pre-made some sample cupcakes for them to have an idea and as well as to try. So these are my Christmas Black Cherries & Mocha Cupcakes.Posted by Picasa

Assorted Berries Fantasy

This is my very first Birthday Cake which I had made for as a gift. Actually I had two birthday cakes to make during this weekend. But due to the tight working schedule that I currently had, I had to cancel one of the order which I felt very sorry about it. This Assorted Berries Cake consists of a mixture of frozen berries like: Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Cherries which baked together with Grand Marnier infused butter cake mixture. It is then sandwich with Blueberries Cream Cheese and wrap up with extra Cream Cheese covering the whole cake and top with fresh Gooseberries and Strawberries. (Too bad, I won't be able to get a picture of the inner cut out of the cake, because it's a birthday cake :p)

This is a very simple design cake which I think I still have a long way to go comparing to those blogger who had being doing such a great job on their cake decoration. I think designing and assemble a cake of it own require some skills which I am still lacking off. But I will try my very best to polish up in this area and I hope I will have more chances to explore in the area of cake making...... Posted by Picasa
P/s: Happy Birthday To You My Dear Friend... Hope all your wishes will come True ........

My Little Donut Venture

It had being about 4 months since I started selling my Mini Baked Donuts Venture. From the starting of 10 over flavours till now the range had expand to almost 30 different flavours. It had always being my dream to set up a cafe selling all kind of bakes from my kitchen. I love to come out of new ideas and bakes which will brighten up my day as well as those who consumed.

These are the recent batch of donuts which I made for Angelia's son Birthday Party and I am glad that they all loves those flavour. She ordered mostly "Strawberry Delight" which is her son's favourite.

Churned up about 150 overs Assorted Donuts for a Farewell gift order. It's really fun and excited to make all these goodies for the thought of someone. I always thank GOD for giving me his blessing on my Culinary Skills so that I can whip up more and more new ideas.

This is the Christmas Chocolate Mint Donut which I came up with during my recent order. Those who tried comment that the mint flavour is just nice and it taste great with the extra Mint Chocolate topping.

Here comes another new flavour of my favourite choice, which is the Lemon Poppy Donuts with Lemon Chocolate. This really taste great and appetising due to the Tangy taste.
