A 'Consolidated' Post

I've been baking some stuff over the past week, but have not posted them until today. It's not so much I didn't have the time, but I had some things on my mind. Nonetheless, here are what I made.

I visit Nic's blog regularly to check out her recipes. These are two which I've made.

Yogurt Panna Cotta, tangy and refreshing.

Cocoa Fudge Cookies, decadent and very very chocolaty. Best of all, the method is really simple.

I had a 'field day' in the kitchen today.

First up, this Min Jiang Kueh (Peanut Pancake) recipe is from Lee Lee, a forum member KC. Min Jiang Kueh is one of favourite breakfast foods, but a good one is sometimes difficult to find. To me a well-done Min Jiang Kueh must have a nice honeycomb structure, be soft but at the same time slightly chewy, not a floury mass. This recipe is really good, I managed to get a crispy edge and chewy centre, yum!

Also made a creamy mushroom soup today using a recipe from another KC member, Stefanie. I guess I used the wrong type of mushrooms, rendering a weird grey color to the soup. But taste-wise, it's thick and creamy (although no cream was added), just the way I liked it.

Lastly, pizza for lunch. Knowing what a bread lover I am, you might expect the crust to be thick. That's right, a pan pizza with home-made dough and pizza sauce, something which I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Eve, the panna cotta is very refreshing, as compared to the usualy ones cooked using cream :)
Nic's recipes are pretty good, so far the ones I've tried turned out not bad.

Adeline, yup ok, just some matters that's all :)
