Grape almond Focaccia

Focaccia is a flat oven Italian bread, usually season with olive oil and salt. I had so many grapes in my refrigerator, so rather than using meat, cheese as a topping, I decided to put grape and almond as a topping. This is my first time make this type of bread, still didn't find the finest recipe. I don't say it is not delicious, but it just so so. Maybe it happened because I made from the salty focaccia, so it didn't perfectly match with the topping, and I just found out the grapes weren't sweet enough to add same taste in this bread. I still want to make it once more and want to put some garlic and herb in the dough to make it tastier.

If you want to make it sweet don't hesitate to put more sugar in the dough, and put some more to sprinkle it on the top.

Beef Galantine (Rolade Daging)

This food remind me about my childhood. It served on special occasion such as wedding party, circumcision party (sunatan) or when elder have family meeting. I love this food very much, because I can't have it often :D, I felt very happy when my mom prepared it on our dining table. But I can't have it as I like because I have 9 family member at that time, as my cousins also lived with us. The best moment I never forgot, as I stood up beside the stove, watched my mom made the sauce. It smelt nice, and I promised my self later in my future I will make it by myself.

Lately, I have problem to make my daily menu, I do need creativity because my kids feel bored with our daily menu. I couldn't help it, since bad weather and almost Chinese New Year make  the price of fish and prawn hike too high.

Moist Chocolate Banana Muffin

Kids back to school, no doubt, mommy need to prepare their break-time foodie. Since my dryer broke, I need to do my wash-dryer on laundry bar. It is a bit annoying, because I need to spend almost an hour outside to wait. Lucky me, that place is on office area, so I only can make it after office hours.
