Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart

I made this Strawberry Cream Cheese in an impromptu attempt (yet again!). So instead of looking like a tart, it looks like my usual cheesecake (except the base is fluted). This is due to the fact that I have insufficient ingredient for the base.

Using homemade strawberry sauce (not jam), it set in nicely. Despite the lack of a full fluted chocolate base, it was as tasty as it should be. Yum!

Chocolate Cream Tart

The more I think about it, the more tempted I get to try out this sinfully rich chocolate dessert - Chocolate Cream Tart.

I would have loved to top it off with some berries, but because I was too excited to do this I cancelled my plan to make a trip down to the supermarket.

Sinful! (Do not attempt to try this if you're on a diet... Hee!)

Busy weekend

I was kept busy the past weekend. Took on two last minute requests - one from Lina & another from Noor Ain.

Lina requested for a simple Brownie - top(per)-less that is. But I couldn't just make a really plain-looking Brownie for her. So I melted some white chocolate & marbled it with the chocolate fudge.

She had also requested for a dozen Lemon Meringue Tartlets.

Noor Ain saw me uploaded the Turkey Bacon Quiche shot on FB about two weeks ago & asked if I bake it commercially. At the time I didn't. So when I finally did, she requested for one. I hope she enjoys it when it was delivered fresh & hot from the oven on Sunday morning. Great for breakfast or brunch.

I have recently become so interested in tarts & pies and have been very excited to try sweet & savoury pastries. I have, however, always contemplated on whether I should use Short Crust or Flaky for savoury pastries. Both, I think, are equally tasty and that explains my indecision.

Concoction In Progress

Hiya foodies! It's been a while since I update this blog. Just to let you know that I'm taking the month of April to experiment new concoctions.

It's quite a tough process as me & my admin go through the list, decide & then the fun begins in the kitchen : )

There will be a couple of new goodies in the "Juz Desserts" category, plus two new categories in the coming months. (Taking things a little at a time here...)

I hope you'll bear with me while I whip the concoctions in my humble kitchen.

Updates coming up...!

Turkey Bacon Quiche

I recently felt inspired to try my hands on pastries again. I could remember the last time I tried to make pastry, it didn't turn out well at all.

However, I really want to get my Quiche going so I have to do it. This time it was definitely better as I've tweaked the recipe just a little bit but build on my confidence to make it work. And it turned out just fine : ))

Turkey Bacon Quiche

No doubt there is still room for improvement and then comes the variation.

(Last batch of) Cuppies for Iffah

These were the last request I had for Chocolate Cupcakes. They were for dearest Iffah who's celebrating her 5th birthday.

Will I miss baking cupcakes? I don't think so cos I'll definitely be baking them again, just not commercially. My kids are cuppies' fans so cuppies are not over yet. 

In fact I'm excited that now I'd be able to try new goodies instead of focusing too much on cuppies. It wasn't the plan in the first place. Well I gave it a shot & now I'll have to be back on track again. Phew!
