Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.

Manual Breast Pump | MAM

I bought this manual breast pump when baby was 15 months old, with the intention of boost up milk supply, also can pump during weekend at anywhere and easier to wash as contains lesser parts. It costs RM199, and I bought it online with free shipping. MAM manual pump parts Full sets of pump This package includes one manual breast pump, one 160ml bottle, one 130ml bottle and 2 caps for milk storage purpose. For the first time I used, I feel it is hard to control as I got around 1oz only, but it was after feeding my baby. Until now I had tried more than 5 times, it was ok to me. I also tried to pump in company whereby my baby not with me for around 8 hours, pump twice in company, but gave up on that as it took me more time with less milk, and can't work while pumping as I will need to hold it, not like electric pump, I use it with handsfree bra which allow me to control keyboard and mouse during pumping. As for washing part, it's very easy as all the parts can be easily clean. As conclusion, this manual pump will able to serve me during non working day when baby is with me, it's also good to boost up milk supply and to keep another bottle of milk in stock. Sometimes I will travel around during weekend, so it is also easier to pack this manual pump for travel, easier to wash as well. It is a very good experience to try on both electric and manual pump, both have the pros and cons, I will choose which one to use base on different situation. Happy breast feeding!

 

Mother's Homemade Kaya Jam Recipe

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya. If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

PepperLunch_12It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

I am lucky to stay in Japan during this season. Early morning on last weekend, I gathered all my things and get ready to picnic under the sakura trees with my colleagues. This was the first time I experienced picnic and hanami in Japan, it was wonderful and I was so excited!

Let me share some sakura photos which I took during my trip to Kitanomaru National Garden北の丸公園.

Well, back to the main topic, FOOD! After the hanami, we had our dinner at Pepper Lunch as we noticed that it is a special restaurant which we never go before. “It is a DIY affordable steak fast food which promises a dynamic and fresh culinary experience for everyone by presenting the novel concept of a sizzling steak. You can enjoy juicy steak brought with louder and longer sizzling sound at affordable prices.” This is quoted from Pepper Lunch website.

I ordered a set of garlic steak and it costs 880yen. The set comes with white rice as well. The steak was served in iron plate which is using a special electromagnetic cooker to cook. The iron plate will heat up to 260C in 70 seconds and remain hot for another 20 minutes.

This is a good experience I had but I was regretting to say that I overcooked the steak! It became hard and not juicy, also I forgot to cook the garlic as I was busy taking the photos causing the garlic not crunchy. Nothing much to complain, I can’t blame anyone as there is actually an instruction given to us on how to cook the steak. Too bad that I don’t understand Japanese, as a consequence, I overcooked my steak! Haha.
