Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.    

 

Steam Chicken with Mushroom Using Cosway Steamer

Recently when we were doing house keeping, we found out that there is a unit of steamer given by Camus's mom. She bought it from Cosway many years ago but did not use it at all. We took it out from our store room and keep it at kicthen. Last two weeks, we used it to cook for our lunch and dinner. We found it quite useful and easy to use without dirty our kicthen, hence not much cleaning job after cook except for washing the steamer part by part after use. We first try with steam chicken with mushroon, the night before cook, we merinate two big chicken drumsticks with oyster sauce, soy sauce and pepper. To make the chicken more delicious, we added dried mushroom, red dates and ginger to the chicken on the day we cooked. Since the steamer contains three layers, we put in lady finger and corn too. With this simple and easy cooking way, we were able to enjoy our meal, and it was so delicious.

 

Apom | Wai Sek Kai 喂食街| Chai Leng Park, Perai

If you like to eat something sweet after dinner, this Ah Pom that located at Lebuh Kurau 5 (Wai Sek Kai喂食街), Chai Leng Park is a good choice for them. The stall that selling Ah Pom is owned by a Chinese auntie; she operated this business for more than 20 years. For those who stay surrounding Chai Leng Park should be know about this Ah Pom. Previously, she was selling the Ah Pom at Chai Leng Park market during morning and at Wai Sek Kai (Wai Sek Kai喂食街) at night. Since I was kid (5~6years old), I like it very much already. May be you will ask me "What's so special?", because you can find Ah Pom/Apom/Apong anyway. I can tell you here, the taste is totally different compared to other Indian style Ah Pom/Apom/Apong.

 

Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

Years! It has been years I never touch on spaghetti, never walk into Italian restaurant (except for pizza). I am phobia to spaghetti after went for Italian buffet in Japan in year 2009, the Italian buffet came with free flow of pizza and spaghetti, somehow I guess I ate too much of spaghetti, and that caused me stop spaghetti for 5 years! Last week, sitting in office, I suddenly smeeeell spaghetti (my brain pop out spaghetti)...then feel like eating the spaghetti that Camus cooked for me about 7 or 8 years ago. Last weekend, he cooked for me again using the same recipe. See below for the ingredients and recipe, simple yet delicious! To cook the sauce, fried garlic and onion in pan, when both ingredients almost golden brown, pour in a can of Campbell mushroom soup, add half can of water and stir well. Add in dried mushroom which has been cut into slices after soak in water until soft. Boil everything and add in a slice of cheedar cheese. Stir evenly. In separate pan, cook corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Very delicious beef breakfast lean bought in Jusco Cook spaghetti in boiling water until it is soft. When everything is done, serve spaghetti with mushroom sauce on plate, add corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Serve hot! Now while I am writing the post, I wish to eat another plate of spaghetti again. Next time, maybe I want to have a plate of carbonara spaghetti. Last but not least, thanks my dear for this very delicious spaghetti!

Today after work, I went to take dinner with my colleagues. We went to a restaurant nearby company to have the dinner, it is called Coco’s (ココス). After about 20 minutes walk from company, we reached the restaurant and start our dinner.

 

 

I ordered a set of Chicken Steak with Cheese and Tomato Sauce. It is like Chicken Coated Cheese served in Malaysia. The chicken is soft and tasty but I can’t really taste the cheese. Maybe I am a cheese lover and the cheese taste is not strong enough for me? Well, don’t care, as long as the overall was not bad. Generally, I am quite satisfied with the food.

My colleagues ordered Beef Hamburger Steak. The beef was about 50% cook and you can continue to cook it yourself on top of the “mini hot plate”. The way they served the steak was special and that the reason they ordered this set.

I ordered the set which come with bread and free flow of drink. At first I thought it is garlic bread, but it wasn’t. It was a white bread which was toasted before served. It was a bit crunchy and taste not bad after spread with butter.

How about the free flow drink? There are plenty of choices to choose. First, I make a cup of hot cocoa drink. I always look for hot cocoa drink when I am in Japan. Japanese like alcohol so much but I don’t really prefer alcohol, hence hot cocoa is one of the drinks that I can drink. The hot cocoa in ココスis thick and suits my taste, you can feel the smoothness of cocoa drink when you drink it. I just love it!

Calpis

It is now cherry blossoms season in Japan, hence Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) Tea was a “must try” drink when you are in Japan. I personally feel that the taste is light and not much different if compare to normal “flower tea”. Anyhow, one of my colleagues ran to toilet after she drinks that tea. She was complaining stomachache and blames the tea. Haha, that was funny!

My colleague saw some other special tea, so we make another two, Baked Apple Tea and Tropical Mango Tea. Both are not bad. To me, they also taste almost the same as normal flower tea.
