Cold Tofu

For the raging hot weather... I decided to make somethg cold for dinner. I vaguely rem I saw a post of another blogger who made somethg similar, and the sauce is peanut butter sauce! Cool... I grabbed a huge bottle of peanut butter and came back to do this. The remaining shall go into peanut butter cookies(gt a gift of william sonamas cookie book to try out)? and char siew bao making!!!

Cold Tofu

1 firm tofu
1 tablespoon or more peanut butter
some hot water
soy sauce to taste
1 century egg(more if u like)

1. Wash the tofu and chill.
2. Mix hot water with peanut butter and mix till combine. Add in soy sauce.
3. POur over tofu.
4. Top with century egg and spring oniongs or shallots.

Chill and serve cold!

Its to die for in this hot weather... needless to say, we polish everything off despite dear dont really like peanut butter.

Waffle Waffle

Annie had posted a recipe for this waffle few days back.
Tempted to try but with no waffle maker.. I can only drool... A kind soul offered her waffle maker for mi to try.. In the event if its a good recipe or rather a recipe I like, I can go n buy the waffle maker...
If its not good enough I can save the $$...

And soo... I pull my tired body out of bed, preparing this, for my brunch...


Waffle with Cherries Topping

Here I have some nice fluffy waffle topped with cherries topping.. I reduced the sugar since Annie mention they are sweet on its own... with 5Tablespoon of sugar, I still find it sweet. Perhaps I will reduce to 3 next round =)

I did double recipe for the egg white sake since u neeed to whisk the egg white till stiff and my mixer is definitely too big for just 1 white... and im too tired to use arm power...
And I managed about 12 waffles. so 1 recipe yields 6. Meaning its just right for breakfast and supper for the 2 of us at home.

Meanwhile the kind soul who lent me the waffle maker get to taste this too... hehe

Dear gave the thumbs up for this waffle and gave the green light to buy 1 ... `grin`

Skipping my way to buy a waffle maker soon..

I know I have to do some cuppies. But with no time in hand.. how to pipe and decor so many of them?
I almost did not want to make them since weariness in me been lingering in my tummy for days.

But I mustnt disappoint the birthday boy.
Took me some hours to get this done, carefuly painted b4 I go to sleep.
While its not my perfect cupcake, it certainly make alot of the little kids happie.

Disney Cuppies

I certainly need to rely on cutters for those cute stuff else I never be able to make them.. unlike my other peers who r so good w 3d figurines making...

Some1 ask why no kitty? well, haha its a birthday boy mahz =)

Fruitty Tarts

I have to do 100 over tarts for the party. Andother near 100 for celebration giveaway.
Toiling in the kitchen for the whole day certainly is a must.

While I refuse to use those preserve cherries for the tart, I still needed some red to liven up the tarts. Thanks to the Comstock cherries which I always have faith and trust to.

Fruit Tarts

The cherry certainly do make them prettier.
At the party, the guest was asking the other where she got the tarts from.. how comehe miss it at the table...
Can see they franticaly searching for it. And in no time the 100s or so were gone. Im glad my effort did not go down the drain.

Some even ask to bring home, but Im so sorry to disappoint them. Good stuff will never have any left over hehehe
