Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Tried this recipe this afternoon for after dinner dessert - as a company to watch winter olympics with hubby. Turned out it was a big success (to me as a very beginner). He was loving it :D Got a big compliment as well (which is not easy to get from him!), saying like "wow,finally my wife makes this after 7 years of marriage..it's better than cinnabon!" lol.. not sure if he was exaggerating :p I only care that he loves it as a special treat. He even said, "you can also sell this, hun!". Unexpected to hear from him. :D Enough of the bragging, lol.. anyway, I made some modification. I put glaze (not on this recipe) which is from; confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla essence, and...a little mixture of water and cornstarch to thicken the glaze since I don't have cream today. Turned out pretty good! The dough, I noticed the video version calls for 'active dry yeast', while the written version calls for 'instant dry yeast'. I didn't have 'active yeast' so I used 'instant' one instead. Turns out well - I've no complain about the dough. Rising perfectly. I tasted a bit stronger yeast taste, but not annoying. Just tasted like how bread is. The butter for filling, instead of softening it, I melted it then mix it with the mix of brown sugar and lots of cinnamon (I put extra cinnamon cos hubby loves it). Turned out, it was a bit too watery but I feel it's easier to spread on the dough. But I think I'll prefer the 'soften the butter' way for next time so it won't give wet final result.

Coconut Milk Rice Pudding
I tried this recipe for today's breakfast. Hubby and I love it lots!! Only we agreed to make this as special treats once a while because its richness - don't want to get heart-attack :p For daily we'll use basic recipe of rice pudding; milk, rice, salt, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. I made some modification; using pineapple instead of mango since this season mango is still so expensive here! Other than that, I use the rice called 'nasi uduk' from last night's dinner instead of cooking from zero again. The rice I used was cooked with coconut oil already plus some herbs (cloves, bay leaves, and salt) - it's Indonesian style, so I didn't use extra coconut milk anymore.. It turned out well and soooo yummy! Still have a bowl in the fridge for tomorrow's snack or movie time.. :D

French Crepes
Tried this recipe and I love the result! It's thin and moist enough to be folded - instead of dry and get cracked when you fold it. I filled it with sauteed apple - found the recipe from this site as well. My husband likes it that he ate 3 pieces before dinner! lol.. I used wok instead of non-stick flat pan as suggested here. A little bit messy at first, but after 2 pieces I started to get the trick; instead of pouring from the (middle part) edge of the wok, I poured the scratch on the middle part of wok with very low heat, and move it around quickly to spread the scratch evenly. Also, because the wok surface doesn't share heat evenly, I tilted the wok around to get the edge part cooked evenly without making the middle part burnt.
