Creamy Chicken, bacon and basil pasta


I got this RECIPE OFF BBC and I just want to say that, if you can't cook (Like me!) and you want to impress your Hubby, cook this! 

We loved pastas and our favourite places are Dave's (RM30++ a plate) D'Italian Kitchen (RM30++/plate) and imagine both of us eating out, the bill comes up to RM80+ (10% service charge and 6% GST)

It wasn't good in the long run, and we tried and tested EVERY SINGLE SHITTY CARBONARA sauces on the shelf. You name it, we tried it. Every bottle/can, something was off. It was all horrible and sauces producers should stop producing creamy carbonara sauces and stick to regular tomato based sauces.

I tried the recipe and since I'm pregnant, I eat more fish (Salmon) and thank God, my office is really close to a frozen food factory that sells smoked salmon for about RM10/pack. 

I would substitute the chicken for smoked salmon and my husband already think that I'm a best cook! He used to complain about, how I don't know how to cook, well, now, no more. In fact, he wants me to make this at least once a week!

Do give this recipe a try. My family liked it better with smoked salmon than chicken. It's fast, fool proof, easy and most importantly, super, duper yummy!!! 

Family That Cooks Together, Stays Together




Decided to make samosas cause, a box of 6 pieces costs about RM20 at the Iranian shops/restaurants and it doesn't include the 6% GST. Things are getting really expensive in this God forsaken country!

Well, on the positive side, we started cooking more and I learnt how to cook better. Have to say that Hubby is extremely pleased. We decided to make samosas cause it's one of my fav foods!!

He made the filling and we both stuffed the popiah skins. Turns out really well!! I can't share the recipe because when the Hubby cooks, he just pours stuff and mix them all up. All I know is he used minced chicken, potatoes and God knows what else, probably spices.

Churros

I'm very impressed at myself for being able to bake and fulfil all my cravings. Was also craving churros. You know, the crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside kinda churros. Since I'm in Malaysia, there's not many choices of churros. 


Got this recipe cause of the title; A Churro Recipe To Die For. Really worth a try. Churros are super simply to make. If I can do it, Pretty sure, you could too!

Mini Cinnamon Rolls. Recipe by Under Lock & Key

Been having many, many crazy and untimely cravings since I got pregnant. One of them was Cinnamon Rolls. 

I've been following Under Lock & Key and I love, love, love her simple and fast recipes. 

One of the recipes was, for her Mini Cinnamon Rolls





Turned out well, and I had some of the filling left and sprinkled it on the rolls. Was absolutely yummy and satisfied my cravings. 

Didn't wanna buy Cinnabon (Cinnamon roll brand here in Malaysia) cause of GST. A small mini roll could go up to RM5. Since I had all the ingredients, might as well make my own. :)

Quick Internet Recipes


I love the internet especially Facebook because they have these really fast and easy recipes that are seemingly foolproof. I gave up on cooking until The Hubby keeps his promise of sending me to Switzerland to learn how to cook and clean and be a housewife. But I still enjoy baking and unlike cooking, I don't see it like a death sentence. 


I tried this recipe but it turned out really egg-y like an omelette rather than pancakes, even though the taste of bananas was really amazing!!!

So, I added an extra banana and it was more like a pancake but I was looking for the cake-y texture so, I added some flour and then, it tasted AMAZING!!!!! Filled with banana taste and so soft and fluffy!!!!


I have yet to try this recipe, Will update once I do!
