Tropical Coconut Pie

Tropical Coconut Pie

Tropical Coconut Pie! Yep, this is delicious. Here I made a pastry case adding pecan nuts which makes for a wonderful crispy texture and of course the nice flavour of pecans. The choice is yours to add extra flavours to your pastry if you’re making it from scratch. It’s an easy recipe and so pleasing to the taste buds! Packed with pineapple and a coconut based custard, this is certainly a crowd pleaser so be sure to make two!

Sesame Prawn Toasts

Sesame Prawn Shrimp Toasts

Sesame Prawn Shrimp Toasts

This is one of my favourite sides! I often have these Sesame Prawn Toasts with a sweet chili dipping sauce or as an accompaniement to my Chinese Chicken & Corn (Egg Drop) Soup. You can also make these using chicken if you prefer, or even make both prawn and chicken for variety. Always a hit at buffets and parties too so be sure to make LOTS!

Quick & Easy Moist Chicken Breast Surprise! – Lovefoodies hanging out! Tease your taste buds!

Quick & Easy moist Chicken breast Dinner

I have to confess I am not the biggest fan of eating chicken breast or white meat as it is often called. The reasons being firstly, the meat can be easily overcooked, or cooked using a technique not suited to the ‘structure’ of the meat, resulting in a dry chewy experience. Second, there is not much flavour in the meat itself as it is lower in fat than it’s neighbour, the thigh or leg, and is often bought without the skin on. Both the fat and skin on meat add heaps of flavour and moisture during the cooking process, so when these two things are missing, it is no wonder why the chicken breast can be a ‘boring, tasteless, dry and chewy’ experience.

I appreciate some people don’t like to eat meat on the bone, nor do they like fat or skin. I also appreciate these same diners do like TASTE, TEXTURE and enjoyment from every bite of meat they take.

My challenge was to come up with a chicken breast recipe which was quick, versatile and most importantly, tasty, succulent and full of flavour. Because this is such a quick recipe, I’ve also included instructions of cooking some potatoes & courgettes / zucchini to accompany the chicken. The fact that this whole meal can be ready on your table within 15 minutes has got to be a bonus!

To maintain the moisture in the meat, it has got to be cooked very fast. This means doing a little ‘work out’ on your meat, so it is not as thick. If you cook meat under a high heat, the outer layer will be quickly cooked, thus sealing all the meat juices within the body of outer sealed layer. This is important to achieve the moisture we want.  So roll your sleeves up and get your skates on for a very fast cooking experience!

Pandan Chiffon Cake – Lovefoodies hanging out! Tease your taste buds!

Light & Fluffy Pandan Chiffon Cake

 Pandan Chiffon Cake

What can I say?! This Pandan Chiffon cake is by far one of my all time favourites. When I posted a photo of this cake on my Facebook page I was asked by someone ‘What does Pandan taste like’. I was completely stumped by this question! I normally have a lot to say about flavours, but this question made me stop and think. I’ve grown up with the taste of Pandan, taking the gentle, subtle, fragrant flavours for granted, so in a way, my taste buds have this flavour stored deep in my life! Some will say it has a taste of vanilla, which I disagree with. I don’t think it has any resemblance to vanilla! It has a slightly earthy, musky flavour, but it is not, in my opinion, a taste you can compare to anything else I know of. 
I guess, if you have ever cooked Jasmine rice, you could make a very lose comparison in aroma.
