About this Cook
i love to cook (and eat). coming from a big family of 9 siblings, naturally to us, family gatherings mean serious eating.anyway, i love to read, bake, quilting and embroidering.
My favorite things to cook
pastries. breads. cakes. muffins. scones. pasta. briyani rice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
every year when my family congregates at my house for Eid Mubarrak, the ladies will assemble in the kitchen, and there will be at least 3 people cooking at once. we will make nasi minyak (some sort of a pilaf) with some beef dish, and acar, which is fresh pickles.
My cooking triumphs
my cooking triumph? when i finally and successfully made croissant and danish...from scratch! thanks to my niece (a chef) who gave me pointers on how to make the pastry.
My cooking tragedies
i tried making angel cake and the fluted tin is just too small. the cake batter just spilled over and made a mess in my oven.

Ruthie Cheese Cake
i tried the recipe and was at first alarmed to see that the mixture is too runny, but the texture turned out okay. it's a bit sweet, so i reduced to less than a cup of sugar, and less than a cup of milk, and also i added another tablespoon of cornstarch.i also used some lemon juice instead of vanilla.on the whole, it's nice and very easy to make.
