Very Healthy Homemade Granola!

For those who like Oat, nuts & mixed fruits will fall in love with this healthy food. I get to know that we can make our own granola at home from food-4tots. I love this recipe simply. I had baked it several time and my family loved it very much. I will like to share with you this very healthy food and hope that you can give it a try to make this at home too. This time, I didn't cook the liquid mixture and it turned out very well too. Save me one step for a lazy person like me. :P
A bowl of goodness...Crunchy and yummy!
It goes so well with cold milk, yogurt...
Treat your body a bowl of goodness!

Braised Vegetarian Mushrooms & Tofu

Running out of idea of what to cook for a meatless day? Yes, I will accompany my hubby to eat vegetarian every 1st and 15th of the lunar month. This is a long overdue post as I have no mood to update my blog recently. Finally, I "packed up" my moody mood and pen down this recipe and share with you all.

Happy Mid-Autumn festival & Mickey Mouse Mooncake

When I am young, having lotus paste moon-cake is a luxury but my mum will buy us those piggy moon-cake in a basket instead. However, I will never forget the happiness of receiving those little piggy basket moon-cake during mid-autumn festival. I will use the basket as a marketing bag and act as if I am going to a shopping center. Kids nowadays are very fortunate, they won’t know that kind of simple happiness we experienced.
I came across this recipe share by Baking Taitai and since I have all the items on hands so I whipped this moon-cake for kids that don’t really appreciate lotus paste. You can find her recipe here and note that I reduced the oil to 50g.

Taglicious wished you all a Happy Mid-Autumn festival and have a nice family reunion time together!
