1  Boy's Pants & Girl's Dress (Trace directly from my kids' fav. clothings) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by jadepearl on: January 25, 2011 07:29:11 PM
Hi Everyone!

I am still very new in sewing and I thought that the easiest way to get the pattern is to trace it directly from my kids' favourite clothes.

Here's a photo of my son's Ben10 pants.

Here's a photo of my daughter's Dora Dress.

As I am getting the hang of sewing the pants and dresses for my kids, I think I will try to sew more of these simple patterns.

Thanks for reading!

2  Kueh Kodok (Banana Fritters) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jadepearl on: January 06, 2011 09:07:20 PM
Hi Everyone!

What do you guys do with ripe / over-ripe bananas besides throwing it away?  Sometimes I will make banana cake / banana bread with it. But kueh kodok (banana fritters) is one of the favourite snack in my home.  Here's my recipe:

6 nos bananas (mashed)
3 tbsp sugar (less if your bananas are really sweet)
pinch of salt
250g - 300g plain flour
oil for frying

1. Mix all the ingredients together.
2. Use an ice-cream scoop or just a spoon, drop the batter into the hot oil. Deep fry it till golden brown.
3. You can eat it plain or sprinkle icing sugar on top of it.

3  As Easy As 123 Jam Recipe in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jadepearl on: January 06, 2011 08:47:27 PM
Here's a easy recipe which I improvised.
The only thing which I have to hunt for is the jam setter. It really helps to set the jam.  The rest of the ingredients, I can find it at home.
All you need is:
cherries (remove seeds)
jam setter
a pot to boil the jam

As I am not a sweet person, here's how I measured the sugar for my cherry jam.
For every 1 cup of cherries, I use 3/4 cup of sugar. One of my buddies said that its too sweet but I read that you need the sugar to ensure that the jam does not spoil.
Simmer the cherries with sugar in a pot for about 30 mins or so.
Add in the jam setter and stir.  
Let it cool.
Taa-daa....you have your own homemade jam!!! Smiley

Here's a photo of my homemade cherry jam:

4  Re: Flatbread Recipe in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jadepearl on: July 30, 2007 04:27:09 AM
Another type of flatbread which we love is Naan

1/2 cup milk 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup yogurt
2 eggs 1 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
4 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

Just dump everything into the breadmachine and turn on the setting - dough. After about 1.30 mins (that's how long my breadmachine takes), take the dough out and flour your hands in order for you to split the dough into small balls. Allow it to proof for another 10 mins. Roll the small dough balls out into oval shapes. Heat-up a non-stick pan and pan fry it (about 2 mins per side) till its cook. Note: This is the time where you can add in other ingredients before you pan-fry it. I added chopped garlic to make garlic naan. Serve wth curry chicken and sayur lodeh or any other fav. dishes.

5  Re: Buying pizza dough from a pizza place? in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jadepearl on: July 27, 2007 10:20:40 PM
Yup, I also make my own pizza dough. Will also freeze the rest for fututre use. Wink

Recipe from recipezaar:

1 1/3  cups water 
2  teaspoons sugar 
1 1/4  teaspoons salt 
2  tablespoons olive oil 
2  tablespoons cornmeal 
3  cups unbleached all purpose flour 
1  teaspoon baking powder 
1/4  teaspoon garlic powder 
1/4  teaspoon onion powder 
1/2  teaspoon msg (Accent*) 
1 1/2  teaspoons bread machine yeast 

Add ingredients (except for cornmeal) to machine bread pan in order as per manufacturer's instructions.
Set to "dough" mode.
Lightly grease one 9*13 inch pan and sprinkle with cornmeal.
When the dough cycle is complete, roll out dough and place in pan.
Let rest in pans for 10-15 minutes.
Add toppings of your choice.
Bake at 350F until done (approximately 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of toppings).
I make the pizza in 9x13 rectangular pans rather than the round pizza pans, because the squares pieces are easier to reheat and pack in school lunches.
