Pais Jagung Sabah

Rudy bought another batch of delicious jagung susu, and we still had a few left when Kak’mbang suggested that we make pais jagung, a sweet steamed corn-based kuih wrapped in cornhusks. What an idea!

Portuguese Duck Rice

I was eating meh duck rice the other day, then remembered the whole duck I had in the freezer. I wanted to try making my own duck rice at home, so I started looking around for (Chinese-style) recipes, only to stumble upon this interesting Portuguese version. The ingredients and steps were quite simple, so I decided to give it a try.⁣

Pierogi (Polish dumplings)

My obsession with dumplings continues, and this time I stumbled upon a recipe of a less expected origin: Poland. I’m following @fatdadcooks on Instagram, and one day I saw him post a photo of pan-fried pierogies he got from a friend. Curious, I started looking up recipes for pierogies.

Apparently there are so many kinds of pierogi with either sweet or savory filling. Found this interesting one by Natasha’s Kitchen, stuffed with mashed potatoes and drizzled with bacon and butter. Sign me up!

Crescia al Formaggio

Tons of Parmesan in the freezer for me to clear out. Best place to get ideas for good bread recipes is of course King Arthur Flour, and this Crescia al Formaggio came up quite highly rated.

This was a rather low-touch bread which didn’t need much work, but required quite some patience due to its long resting time. The recipe is chock full of parmesan, with a bit of white pepper for some heat.

Savory Cheese Bread

Recipes from the King Arthur Flour website often call for cheese powder and I got quite curious about it, so I bought some from the recent Lazada 8.8. sale. I bought extra to get Free Shipping, so I was very eager to start using up this new ingredient.

This Savory Cheese Bread recipe from King Arthur Flour website was originally written for a Zojirushi breadmaker, and I’ve rewritten it for use in my Kenwood BM450 breadmaker.

Cheese Buns

I’ve had that block of Kraft Cheddar in the fridge for ages now. I think I bought it to use for a different recipe, but never got around to do it.

Fast forward to today and I really want to clear out ingredients from the fridge ASAP, so here I picked a super quick bread roll recipe from Texanerin Baking, rewritten and adjusted for my Kenwood BM450 breadmaker.

Luncheon Meat Gyoza

Bought halal chicken luncheon meat from Lolili. Each portion is about 300 grams, and I would usually use half of it in each of the luncheon meat dishes I make.

Okay maybe not all dishes. I made the super-yummy Sweet & Sour Luncheon Meat with Potatoes and I decided to use the whole thing.

Was looking at more ideas for using luncheon meat, and I’ve mentioned often my love for making and eating dumplings, so why not make some luncheon meat gyoza?

Breadmaker Wu Pao Chun Champion Toast Bread

I’m on quite a few Facebook groups related to breadmaking and breadmaker usage, and quite often I see folks posting their Wu Pao Chun bread. I was wondering what this was all about, and many times those posts didn’t come with the recipe.

One day Rudy shared with me the link to the recipe by The Domestic Goddess Wannabe, written specifically for the breadmaker. I adjusted the recipe to suit my Kenwood BM450, both for a 500 and 750g loaf.
