I have tried muffin with cream cheese as topping, I have also tried cream cheese cake, BUT this is the first time I am trying cream cheese filling muffin.
The muffin is best eaten when it’s freshly out from the oven when the cream cheese is oozing! If you can't finish them, store them in the fridge and heat up in a microwave for 2min before eating.

Okok, I know I have posted 2 wishing list earlier, but human are greedy creature! No? We are never satisfied and I'm sure you will agree that we should always upgrade ourselves and our gadget. ツ
I happen to browse through someone blog and saw Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin from Pantry Pursuits @ Estimate S$52.
It's amazing as you can control the pastry thickness to either 2mm, 6mm or 10mm! I always have nightmare rolling my dough as it is a challenge for me to even out the dough/pastry to the same thickness throughout.

This is so far the best, I repeat, the BEST chocolate chips cookies I ever bake! These are the real deal, I highly recommend you to give these a try.
The strange combination of cake flour and bread flour is extraordinary. The dough must be refrigerated for a minimum of 24 hours (I prepare the dough 2days ago - 15 July 2011). They are perfectly soft while still being just firm enough to stay together. You can bake a longer time if you prefer a crunchy cookie.

I was searching high and low for a blueberry cake recipe for Allan's birthday as he had specially requested/ hinted for one. I found a couple of recipes which included blueberry cheesecake brûlée (I didn't pick this because it is served in a cup and really hard to bring it to office), blueberry crumble, and other blueberry cakes. After some discussion with his dearest fiancée, she picked this recipe... especially for him. I hope he likes it and the taste won't disappoint him.

Char Siu (also known as char siew, chashao, chasu, barbecue pork) is a long strips of boneless pork that is seasoned with a mixture of honey, five-spice powder, fermented tofu (red), dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce, red food colouring that are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire. These seasonings turn the exterior layer of the meat dark red, similar to the "smoke ring" of American barbecues.
We are having our once a month food photography today at Wee Yang's house. I am preparing a dessert as I don't want to carry too much things over to cook. He is staying at the other end of Singapore! After much consideration, brownie is the best choice. It is suitable for a traditional afternoon tea and it can stay all day long outside the humid weather.
Result? Was really tasty, but a little sweet to me even I have reduce more than 20% of the sugar. However, the sweetness was just nice for almost everyone and my husband.
Asparagus wrapped in bacon (Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus) is hassle free and with lots of way of cooking it. You can play around with the recipe by replacing the bacon with thin sliced of pork belly or replace the asparagus with golden mushroom.

My husband is feeling sick for the past few days. My in law is upset as my nephew is hospitalize due to high fever.
I decided to make them a comforting dish to cheer them up - my husband favourite Bak Kut Teh and my in law favourite stewed pork.
I bought the Uncle Seah's ready pack Bak Kut Teh, it has mild flavours of herbs as my husband dislike strong herbs. Add in some garlic and white peppers with prime ribs. Everyone love this flavourful Stewed Pork especially my in law. They finish the whole pot and only left a small bowl for us (which explain in the picture)! Lolz.
