I baked a New York Cheesecake few weeks before CNY… a first! Wohoo!
All I can say is it’s very easy to make. My mom’s electric mixer broke down just prior to this so I have to resort using hand for mixing. It’s not bad at all.
I found a few New York Cheesecake recipes like from Joy of Baking, Yochanna’s and Philadelphia Cream Cheese website itself. But at last I follow Cooking For Engineers’ Cheesecake, Plain New York style recipe. I love her step by step recipes. Easy for noob like me ma.
As you may or may not know, this year sis and I are extremely ‘rajin’ (hardworking). We bake our own Chinese New Year cookies!!! We’ve made 4 in total. Not bad eh?
Well there’s pineapple tarts, oatmeal crispies, margarine cookies and the 4th one which I’m going to share with you is Kuih Kapit aka Love Letter.
It was 3 years ago in 2006 that we last make them. At that time grandma helped us with everything. When I read back my kuih kapit post I was quite lost. At that time things were too messy and I didn’t have time to write a proper recipe.
This time I purposely asked grandma not to come to our house. One is because I know she will definitely help out and we don’t want that. Second is because we want to learn making kuih kapit by ourselves from scratch.
I first discovered this place; Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant because I was sick of eating dim sum. This dim sum restaurant was a few shop away from Khong Kee. I will never go back to the dim sum shop. Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant is ALL I NEED! 🙂
Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant is located at Taman Paramount SeaPark, PJ. It’s just beside Hong Leong Bank and opposite Giant (used to be a cinema).
Their ‘chew pai’ food. Yong Tau Fu of course! The not-so-good photo because I was concentrating on eating. While I find the Yong Tau Fu taste not bad it is the soup that I love very much.
My dad has a weird ice-cream recipe.
Look at the photo.
For awhile, I thought my mushroom maggie looks pretty much like what an alien would eat in the alien world. Purplish & slimy. GROSS!
