About this Cook
I never cook until I move in with my boyfriend. I was born in a family of cooks and until now, my mom still runs the family's catering business and my sister has her little cake shop. I've always been the disgrace of the family when it comes to cooking until last Christmas (2010) when I managed to bake apple pies.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes. I love cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sambal tumpang. A Javanese (i'm Indonesian) traditional salad dressing made of fermented soybeans and tahu tempe bacem also made of fermented soybeans.
My cooking triumphs
Dutch steak, apple pie, ontbijtkoek. Banana loaf (with no baking experience) NYAM!
My cooking tragedies
AAAAaarrggghhh!!!!! my first lasagna. Tried to bake two pans for Christmas and ended up throwing away one full pan of it. :(

Tempeh Reuben
I like this recipe. Never tried it though but growing up with tempeh as a cheap alternative to meat, i can make a lot of tempeh-based dish but putting it as a sandwich had never been one of them.

Green Tea Layer Cake
LOVE IT! Tried it last night. I halved the recipe and I misread the instruction. I added the yoghurt together with the oil and sugar. It turned out fine. Next time, I've to add the green tea powder to 5-6gr instead of 4 because I can barely taste it. Yielded 9 cupcakes and I reduced the baking time to 15-20 minutes.
