Hedgehog Butter Cookies

Warning: The following photos contain a very lame story πŸ˜›   The second unusual post for this week. Yesterday was my wedding anniversary. I’ve been married to this awesome guy for 4 years now. And almost 5 years since I met him for the first time. And I’m still in love with him β™₯β™₯β™₯ I’ve made these cookies a while ago, but I want to keep it for today. Perfect time. The idea came from pinterest. When I saw it, I knew I had to make it. Hedgehog such a cute animal. And I think my husband is like a hedgehog. Very cold and sharp (you know what I mean :P) outside but once you know him more, he’s such a cutie and lovely guy. I use my fork cookies recipe for these cookies, then shape the dough into a cone shape. Once baked, dip half of cookie into melted chocolate and sprinkle some toasted almonds or simply sprinkle. But you can also see the original recipe here. Now let’s (not) take a look at …

Mini Chicken Pizza

I must say that I was a bit surprised when I saw a menu list from local pizzeria here in Sweden for the first time. The one that caught my eyes was one of husband’s favourite pizza. Chicken, banana with bernaise sauce pizza. Please tell me I’m not the only one that didn’t know about those funky toppings. Pretty please… But one day I decided to give it a try (tasted husband’s pizza a little bit) and guess what! Another surprise! I liked it. Not crazy about it, but definitely something is different there. Something good. In Indonesia, bananas are really cheap. There are so many different varieties for different purpose. But I’ve never eaten or found banana in proper food. We only use banana for desserts or sweet snacks. That’s why I was a bit shock when I found banana as one of pizza topping here. And husband said it’s so weird because you can find banana everywhere in Indonesia but only use it for sweets (makes sense I must say :D) And this …

Macaroni Casserole (Schotel)

Hi everyone! This is my first post for this week and also the first for this year. In this chance, I also want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU! Today I have macaroni casserole, or in Indonesia its common name is macaroni schotel. The word schotel borrowed from Dutch language. Usually we add corned beef, smoked beef, chicken or sausages in it. The rest are pretty much the same like other casserole. But nowadays, this casserole has been Indonesianized to suit Indonesian’s taste by adding tofu. No worries though, I didn’t put any tofu here, because I love husband a lot and he’s not a big fan of tofu. However, I forgot to write didn’t know the exact measurements for this recipe. I usually just add the ingredients by feeling (sounds advanced right?) But of course it doesn’t work all the time πŸ˜€   Ingredients: 4 cups cooked macaroni 2 eggs 200 ml cream 100 ml milk chorizo / smoked beef / corned beef red paprika, sliced button mushroom, sliced 1/2 medium …

Chicken Wrap

Who doesn’t eat fast food? I don’t like it that much now after I have my daughter. And we rarely eating out too. I make my own fast food most of the time when I don’t feel like cooking. But there’s this one fast food that I like the most (you know.. the one got famous because of their chickens :D) unfortunately they don’t have it here. How sad. The closest one I can find is in Copenhagen, Denmark. Wwwwweeeew,, expensive chicken πŸ˜› So if you know the brand I’m talking about, I assume you knew that they have something called twister. Which is chicken wrapped in tortilla. That’s what I was craving for. I made this chicken wrap to save lots of money and time to travel for 4 hours to Copenhagen just to eat chicken wrap. The result… not so bad.. It’s not the same of course, but it was satisfying enough. I made the chicken using my mum’s recipe for fried chicken. But I only use chicken breasts. Better if you marinate …

Mie Titi (Crunchy Noodle with Seafood and Veggies)

  Ever since Ramadan is over, I kept thinking that I should start posting more, but as you all know there’s no cure to a sickness called “LAZY”. Yup, that’s what happened to me lately. Just because this month is a busy month for me, so every time I have some spare time, I use it to be lazy and just relaxing. Pardon me for that. This time I want to share with you another Indonesian food. This time it comes from a big city called Makassar in Sulawesi Island. I used to live in that city for 4 months or so. I was only 16 that time πŸ˜› And that was also the very first time I lived far away from my family. Ever. Surprisingly I survived! πŸ˜€ Let me share something out of topic a bit here. I don’t understand why, most of the time (so far) when people meeting me for the first time, they always think that I’m a spoil girl who can’t do any work. Like cooking, cleaning, etc. And …

Beef Stroganoff Pie

I’m baaaaaaaack!!! Back to my old routine now, while still waiting for my Swedish course letter πŸ˜€ So, I got a bit ofΒ hurricane for the past 2 weeks. It happened so sudden, now it stops so sudden too πŸ˜› Anyway, Ramadan is now over, so I hope I can start posting like usual again until I have to go to the Swedish course. This time I want to share another made-up recipe. This actually very quick to put together, and its great for parties or when you inviting some friends / relatives to have dinner together. Ingredients: 500g beef, diced 100g button mushrooms, sliced 2 medium size onion, sliced 2 garlic cloves, chopped 1 tsp dried rosemary 1 tbsp whole grain mustard 1 tsp ginger powder 200ml water / beef stock 150ml cream 500g mashed potato salt & pepper note: If you have fresh rosemary, use them.

Ridha’s Chicken Quesadilla

Another monday has come. Just a simple, easy and quick this time. I mean… really quick and easy. A week before Eid, I’m getting a bit busy and lazy at the same time. I’ve done some cookies and cake bases, but not with the cooking part πŸ˜› The first time I saw this was when I watched one of my favourite cook, Nigella Lawson. Her recipes always very easy and quick. I like her cooking shortcuts. Especially when I’m not in the mood for cooking. Well, since I’m still not really in the mood for blogging (do you have that moment too?), let’s just take a look at the ingredients now, shall we? πŸ™‚ Ingredients: pan fried chicken (I used leftover), sliced a pack corn / flour tortilla tomato sauce mozzarella paprika, small cut mushroom, sliced salt & pepper   How to: Preheat your pan / grill pan (even better). Take 1 tortilla wrap. Spread 1 tbsp of tomato sauce. Then take a little bit of paprika, chicken, mushroom and mozzarella. Place the filling just …

Scotch Pancake with Caramelized Banana

Just a quick dessert idea here. I’ve been making this pancake for a quick dessert in the last 3 years or so. Since I met my husband πŸ˜› I like this recipe because it’s quick and easy, and it doesn’t need resting time like most of pancake / crepe batter. So anytime you feel like eating pancake, you can make it right away. Plus the texture is really nice too, it’s very light and fluffy. And to be honest I like this kind of pancake better than the one look more like crepe. There’s something cute about this pancake that I like ^_^ Source: Ramsay’s Scotch Pancake Ingredients: 150g flour 3 eggs 75ml cold water 120ml butter milk 1 tsp baking powder pinch of salt oil for frying 2 bananas, sliced length ways 3 tbsp caster sugar 30g unsalted butter How to: Β In a bowl, beat the eggs with hand whisk just until the yolks and whites incorporated. Β Add sifted flour and baking powder into the bowl. Then add salt. Pour water slowly while mixing …

Sate Daging (Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce)

This recipe has been waiting for a while in my draft now. Always had no chance to post this. But it was such a great satay. I know I have posted salmon satay before. But since that was for the challenge I had no choice but to post it first before the deadline πŸ˜› Satay always looks like lots of work, but ah-ah, it’s very easy to put together and tasty too. And my daughter likes satay a lot. I think just because she got to hold the skewers though. Kids usually like anything on stick πŸ˜› For a quick cook like this, you need a good quality meat. The one suitable for steaks. So make sure you ask your local butcher for a good quality beef. It’ll be a bit pricey, but worth it πŸ™‚ For this satay, I ate it with peanut sauce and pickled cucumber (I’ve mentioned about it here) and you have to prepare the pickled one day ahead, because it needs to rest overnight. Pretty much normal in my home …

Sloppy Joe

Before I watched Rachael Ray’s video on TV, I never heard about sloppy joe. It was a weird name, indeed. But when I looked at the final look, it was very mouth watering. And I knew I have to make that someday. Finally last weekend I made this food. I think, the beef mixture looks like bolognese a lot, taste also similar but without the oregano smell and taste. The difference is you eat bolognese with pasta but this one with bread, and make it look like a burger πŸ˜› Was really nice though, now is in my quick-meal-when-I’m-feeling-lazy-to-cook list. The recipe I tried also from Rachael’s website. She’s one of my favourite cook. She always make quick, easy and tasty looking recipes. Ingredients: 500g minced beef 2 tbsp oil 1 tsp brown sugar 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 400ml canned tomato 2 tbsp tomato paste salt & pepper burger buns, lettuce, tomatoes How to: Preheat oil in a large pan / pot. Add minced beef, and start breaking it (otherwise …
