Dark Brown Sugar bread loaf - 黑糖吐司

You will see baker using dark brown sugar as their ingredient in their baking because Dark brown sugar has a very strong molasses flavor, while light brown sugar is a little drier and has a much milder flavor. Last night, I used it to make a loaf of bread. The taste of the bread doesn't disappoint me. It is so yummy until it can be eaten by its own without any spread. I am using my Zoji Bread maker, it does give a hard crust but inner texture of the bread is soft.

I am a working mum & share recipe for Honey, Soy & Ginger Chicken Chop

Someone asked me before, why I can do so many things in a day. How do I find so much time & energy? My answer to her is cos I love my family! Love give us energy to move on in life. I won’t have leisure time for TV & ME time at night after work on weekdays. Yes I am a full time working mum without a helper. I need to juggle my work, family and my own time properly. I am lucky to have my in-law to take care of my kids when my hubby & I are away from work. I will seldom bring work home unless there is no choice. I will not grumble on my work once I reach home no matter how unhappy I am. Yes, do not bring “work” stress home.  My way to let off stress is to bake. I will wait for my kids go to their dreamland before I pursue my passion. At times, my supportive hubby will take care of my kids when I went for a short run too! 

Let me share with you my daily time-table for weekday.
5.45am – Wake up and prepare breakfast first.

6.30am – Continue to prepare my lunchbox(at least 2x per week), do the clean-up of my kitchen & etc
(Hubby will bring my gal to school by 7am)
7.10am – Dress up myself to work
7.30am – Wake my boy up and dress him for school.
7.45am – Bring my boy to school and off to work. (Lucky, my hubby drive me to work everyday)
8.30am – 5.30pm – TAG @ work
6.30pm – Reach home, take over 2nd shift from my in law. Start to cook dinner. My kids are cooperative, they will sit down to enjoy their TV program while I prepare their dinner.
7.15pm – Dinner served, eat, wash and tidy up my house.
8pm – Clean up my kids & myself down for bed time.
8.15pm – 9.45pm – Family bonding time (Doing homework, reading and communication time)
9.45pm – Brush teeth, drink their milk and tuck them to bed. My kids will never forget their goodnight kiss to me and hubby ~ So sweet! 
10pm – Kids in dreamland and my ME time starts! Hahahha…

Weekend is my marketing, shopping, doing house chores, family bonding & baking time! 

Of cos, I have a supportive hubby helping out on house chores to lighten up my work at home. 
I'm not complaining but enjoying it as a mother, wife & myself! I hope this post will inspire you to keep going!  加油, all Mummies! We are all so great!

Healthy Korean Bibimbap

Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish that means “mixed rice” that is served as a bowl of white rice topped with sautéed vegetable, chilli pepper paste, soy sauce. A raw or fried egg and sliced meat are common additions to the dish. The ingredients are stirred together just before eating it. Best is to served it HOT on a heated stoned bowl. Today I try to replica this traditional dish in an easier method since I got my Homemade Kimchi and most of the items are ready in the fridge. For kids version, I didn’t add in the chilli pepper paste & kimchi for them. Surprisingly, they love this dish too.
