Baking & Tea-Snack Collection

Browsing through bookstores is always one of my past-time hobby which in the end will make me end up with all kinds of books in my mini library at home. I can resists the temptation of buying clothes, shoes, bag and etc. But I can't resists the temptation of buying books and enjoying food.

Both me and my dear son loves to eat bread, I can have bread for breakfast, tea-break and even lunch. I will packed bread for tea-bread or lunch at least twice a week, so when i saw this interesting toast book, I immediately add it to my shopping cart.

I have two different pancake/waffle books which I purchased due to the "Kawai" presentation of the food. Look at the pancake which they fold into the shape of a fish, isn't that cute? Sometime looking at all these will make my days even more meaningful rather than eating it.

Look at this, I didn't know that we can actually used pancake or waffle flour to make cakes, muffins, cookies and etc other than pancake itself. Although I am not sure of the end products and how they taste compare to the normal ingredients that we used to make cake. But by looking at those photos already makes me adding the book into the shopping carts again :)

This is one of Alex Goh Baking book which consists of a lot of beautiful cakes which I think I can never master it. Because I am not those person that is into cake making but then I still add this book into my collect... *Faint* Posted by Picasa

Homecook Meal Collection

These are some of the Cookery Books that I had purchased over the past few months. Some of it I have read from the public Library and I find that it is a good keeper as future reference.

Grab at outside one of the NTUC store @ S$9.00 and it consists a lot of wonderful soup that I would like to give it a try when I am free. They have pretty good explanation of the ingredients used too. This book is written by one of the famous TV chef, "FANG TAI".

Other than the above "FANG TAI" soup book, I also grab another one which force more of using Chinese Herbs to neutralise our body health.

Personally I love this book which consists of a lot of attractive photos which is the main consideration for me when purchasing a cookery book. The steps are pretty easy to follow and they have all kinds of dishes with different kind of fish as the main ingredient.

This book come together as the same publisher as the one fish book above. They have interesting western dishes that required short baking time and each dish has their unique taste and presentation.

I have never tried using our normal rice cooker to whip up other dishes other than the Yam & Cabbage Pork Belly Rice which my dad used to make for us when we are young. So when I saw this cookbook, I am very keen and interested to try out those dishes using rice cooker.

Bought this at the Popular book clearance for S$5.00. I love the presentation of the dishes and their nutrition value of the grain rice but then I find it a bit difficult to find some of those special grain mentioned in Singapore stores. Posted by Picasa
