Penang Pepper Biscuits

It has been a long-long time since I last ate these...  PEPPER BISCUITS!
Ingredients are flour, pepper, sugar, groundnuts, margarine, sesame, red beancurd = YUMMY SNACKS!
Coming to think of it, I have not been to Penang for quite a while now.  These Pepper biscuits are being sold at Ng Kee Cake Shop in Cintra Street, Penang, very narrow lane especially when there are cars parked on both sides of the road.  I remember the last time I bought these biscuits, they were packed in a box and cost around RM4.50 each.  

But now with such a nice packing, my friend told me that it cost RM8.00 now!  Well, I guess it is not surprising to us anymore, everything seems to be increasing these days..... but then, when food is concerned, it does not matter to pay a bit more to taste them and to "snack" them especially when one is blogging the night away.....

Four pieces for me is good enough... 
Cannot eat too much at one go!  
They taste spicy a bit due to the pepper...
And they are so "NIB-ABLE!"
Yes, I nibbled and nibbled.... Full Stop!
One word of advice:  Take a few pieces out and quickly keep the rest in a SAFE place.. otherwise the whole packet will be finished at one go and might wake up to a painful throat the next day!  No Joke...  LOL...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...

I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
