So how did I make my tikoy?  I have been meaning to write down my recipe but because of a million other things I need to do, that was pushed down the list and well, forgotten.  But this time, I decided I should.  I don’t need to wait for Chinese New Year to have some, …

JELLY BISCUITS

While I was browsing in the internet for what I can make for one of our church’s morning tea, I came upon a photo of what is called Jelly Biscuits.  I clicked on the site and found the recipe on http://www.kidspot.com.au/best-recipes/After-school-snacks+86/Jelly-crystal-biscuits-recipe+4486.htm.  I loved the colours of these biscuits and sure enough, my daughter loved not …

Chewy Anzac Cookies

I know, I know, again, such a long lull. Busy with the Christmas preps, baking, and it’s school holidays, so bonding time with my daughter. She is currently asleep on the couch with Deefa our pet dog after we have been playing with Wii and I thought I’d try to use this chance to type …
