Green Chicken Curry...My Version :)

This curry has been in my Must Do List for a long time, and I just had the chance to try it. Mine is not so green like the famous Thai Green Chicken Curry. Maybe due to the chillies I used here.

But I was satisfied with the taste and got myself indulged in this creamy curry, although I felt it could have been little more spicier.

So, wait no more...let's get to the recipe!

Snow Cheesecake....

This is one cake which has gone viral among Malaysian Food Bloggers of late. Me, not wishing to miss the train, gave it a try and the cake was liked by all. The cake itself is not too cheesy, but the filling and topping, yes. Thus, for those who don't really fancy cheesecakes can try this!

You can also use your own cheesecake recipe for the cake part. Just slice the cake into half, fill and top with cream cheese and grate cheddar cheese over. Done!

Before we go to the recipe, let me thank the recipe owner Sherry_Mz of for sharing this wonderful and yummilicious recipe with us. She should be really proud and happy to see the number of food bloggers and readers tried her recipe. Also thanking fellow Malaysian bloggers for sending the vibes to others...and that includes me! LOL ;)

Now, to the recipe. I have translated the original recipe which was in Malay.

Seeing you again on a Guest Post series...

Pleased to welcome my lovely guest for today, Ms Sujatha, or better known as Suja MD among food bloggers. 
I got to know Suja when she emailed me, complimenting on my blog and introduced hers. That took me to her beautiful ever space, PEPPERBOWLwhich has delicious recipes along with excellent, bright clicks! I replied her right away offering an invitation to guest post in my space. There was never a NO, LET'S SEE, OH I'M SHY etc. reply from her. But an immediate answer, YES with a few questions. I saw the dedication in her to follow up with me once her recipe was ready. 
Suja has come up with her Chocolate Layer Cake to be shared here. Check out her pictorial methods and the end result. Splendid!!! And do visit her space and show her your love too ;)

Chicken Sambal Fried Rice ~ My Guest #10....Arthy

Welcome back readers and friends!

Let me take to the guest post series right away.

Today, I'm honoured to feature a very sweet blogger in my Guest Post series. She is none other than Ms ARTHY from Sumanarthy's Kitchen.

Firstly, I have to thank Arthy for accepting my invitation. Secondly, for her patience in waiting for the post to get published. Yes, she understood my situation very well and agreed to wait, infact she gave me moral support during my absence. Thank you dear sis!

Arthy, is more like a sister rather than a fellow blogger to me. We often communicate via Whatsapp and have been mutually commenting on our blogs. I love her space and all her dishes. Totally in awe with her creations...she is a wonderful, kind-hearted and most important, a terrific cook! I believe she inherited her culinary skills from her mother. She can make you go weak knees with her simple presentation, which I liked the most! Just WOW!

Wait no more, say hello to Arthy and check out her Chicken Sam…
