Window Shopping

No recipes for today, no food stories, only stuff I found while working lately.

Before I begin, I’d like you all to meet one of my food-blogging gurus: Chubby Hubby. Now you know one of the people who I got my inspiration from.

Now, let’s shop.

I found some cool stuff on the net. Here, check ’em out:

Remind me of my Mom and my late nanny (si bibik)Thai (granite) mortar & pestle 8″

When I was a kid, we had a nanny who was like a mother to us (we called her Bibik). She’s old, but very strong. She loved us (me and my 6 siblings) the way she loved her own children. We loved her dearly ’till the day she passed away (only a few months after my Mom passed away). We still do.

We used to have this stone mortar and pestle in our kitchen. My Mom and Bibik used this mortar to grind nuts, rice, anything. I
used to watch them pounding the pestle to the mortar and observed how the granules turned into powder. Sometimes they let me try one stroke or two, then I would give up to the weight of the pestle.

Seeing this mortar on the net reminded me of them, of my lovely childhood with them in there. This is a tribute to the 2 most amazing women in my life, my Mom and Bibik. God bless you both.

Cool Hunting: Get the Scoop

This is an adjustable multi-function measuring cup that holds 2 Tbsp to 1/2 cup ingredients. And it’s also a refrigerator magnet. Nice.

UncommonGoods: High Heel Cake Server

Actually, it’s rather tacky🙂 But I think I’ll have one. I hate when my cake server falls on its back when the cake is not heavy enough to hold it straight. Now I give it a better look, it does really look like a shoe!

Artika and Integra Round Kitchens from Pedini – the trend is now | Trendir

Ooooh, round kitchen! Rounded working space is my utopia!
 
 
Ok, that’s the end of our window shopping today.

I bumped into this site the other day, it’s called Cooking For Engineers. I love how they turn the recipes into Gantt chart. Well, what can I say, I’m always an engineer at heart.

Got two ideas from Recipezaar: Pineapple and Palm Sugar Turnovers and White Chocolate Mousse Filled Meringue W/Strawberries. Probably will try them soon.

Finally, Happy Aidil Fitri, everybody. I deeply apologize for everything I’ve done or said that might hurt any souls. The faults are mine and mine alone. May Allah purify our soul, give us a new birth as a better human being, just like a newborn baby. Amin, ya Rabbal Alamin.

    Baking cakes is easy. Give it a try to one or two simple fool-proof recipes, and you’ll get addicted. Trust me. —–Riana
