I have alot chocolate cookies recipes and all are so yummy and tasty and just can't finish to try out all of them. Here, one of the yummilicious one that I'll like to share. Recipe adapted from one of my collection books, with some changes as I can't get some of the ingredients from my nearby bakery store. 
Anyway it turned out super delicious and they never stay long in my cookie jar..;p

I think you can judge how delicious they were from the pictures below...(even though they were badly captured)...haha!

115g butter
115g brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
115g dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
50g raisins
100g macadamia nuts (roughly chopped)

~ Preheat oven at 190'C
~ Cream butter with sugar until pale and fluffy
~ Add in egg and vanilla and beat well
~ Stir in flour into the mixture and fold in lightly with a metal spoon
~ Add in chopped chocolate, chopped nuts and raisins and stir well
~ Spoon small spoonful of the mixture onto prepared tin and leaving space for spreading
~ Bake for 15-20 minutes until beginning to turn pale golden
~ Cool for 2-3 minutes and transfer to wire rack to cool completely

Look at the chocolate!! It melted when you bite them and the crunch of the nuts just come so well with the cookies. Trust me...its heaven!

Fried Pumpkin Kueh 南瓜饼

I love pumpkin, its a cultivar of the squash plant, love the deep yellow to orange color. 
I've tried to make some kueh with this beautiful squash long time ago, the colors turned out so beautifully and the sweetness of the squash is so tasteful. 
Here a simple recipe that I'll like to share....Fried Pumpkin Kueh (南瓜饼) which is very famous
Recipe adapted from the web and I've made some changes to suit our own taste. 
I've tried this natural kueh at one of the Chinese restaurant near Kuala Lumpur but when I went back last 2 weeks, the restaurant has closed down. The food were really nice and tasty there, I'm wondering why they closed down without any notice. Anyhow, I've tried out some of their recipes myself and this was one of them.

I'm very satisfied with the outcome and of course when my family love them as much as I do.
Crispy at the outside and chewy inside, very tasty!
Here's the recipe....

200g pumpkin (cut into small cubes)
200g Glutinous flour
50g castor sugar
alittle salt
alittle water (not neccesary)

~ Steamed the pumpkin till soft then mashed.
~ Mix all ingredients in a large bowl except water until well mixed.
~ Add alittle water if the dough doesn't form.
~ Round up dough into a small ball (about 20g) and flatten.
~ Heat up alittle cooking oil (about 2-3 tbsps ), panfry the kueh at medium heat until both sides are golden brown.
~ Place cooked kueh on greasing paper to remove some extra oil and serve hot.

Grilled Paprika Chicken with Baked Cheesy Potatoes and Mushrooms

So lately I've been baking and cooking all the old recipes, craving for all the old stuffs. My family has been asking why am I not baking or cook any delicious food that they like last time, so I just bake whatever they ordered..hehe! I'm not lazy but no new recipes lately..haha! 
Anyway, here is one of the old ones which I grilled long time ago for a Christmas party, but with a new side dish which I think I should share with you. A delicious and simple side dish which you should try.

Baked potatoes and brown mushrooms with pizza topping cheese. At the beginning I just thought of baked the potatoes but my daughter requested some mushrooms. So I just mixed all these 3 ingredients together and guess what!....They loved it!!

4 Soft potatoes, cubed
1 pck Brown mushrooms, halved
salt, black pepper, olive oil (to taste)
Pizza topping cheese (as desire)

~ Mixed all ingredients together then spread the cheese topping over the potatoes and mushrooms.
~ Bake at 200'C for 20-30 minutes or until golden and crispy. Served hot!

*served 4

For the grilled chicken recipe, please refer to my old post, Paprika Grilled Chicken.
This grilled chicken was my best among the others. The chicken drumsticks were bursting with flavors!

Oh the side dish, please remember not to add too much salt as it will be too salty when served with the yummy grilled chicken. Try try try!!! I'll like to know about your comments...:))
