This is Ayam Bakar Kecap (2)/Grilled Chicken with sweet soya sauce ala mbak Anggiek. Colourful extra accompaniments are vegetables and sambal lado mudo, served together with warm rice. I used chicken thighs, boneless and skinless, instead of a whole chicken. Mbak Anggiek, thank you for a delicious Ayam Bakar recipe. See another version of Ayam Bakar Kecap (1) recipe in Bahasa Indonesia here.

I made 3 x Nastar´s recipe and still had leftover 12 white eggs (400 ml) in my fridge. After searching in internet, I found this recipe from creative kitchen. My cake doesn´t look perfect, probably coz of cooled white eggs or I modified the original recipe. I have no idea. Any suggestions??

Unser imbiss gives me an idea what to do with my leftover breads before they´re going to be expired. Of course, you can make it not only due to expire date. I´ve added sultanas/raisins and mixed vanilla+ground cinnamon.

What and where antioxidant can be found here.
I planted the seeds of Gründkohl/Kale in my little garden on March´07. Today, one of great joys is to pick the leaves and cook them in my kitchen. I just feel good! I made easy and fast Gründkohl-Beef Curry by using Instant curry seasoning mix. The taste of Gründkohl/Kale is almost similar with Cassava leaves or called daun singkong in Bahasa Indonesia.

Many variations of Soto can be found in Indonesia cuisine with regional cooking techniques and ingredients (for example: Soto Jakarta, Soto Bandung, Soto Pekalongan, Soto Madura, Soto Banjar, Coto Makassar, Soto Padang, Soto Belitung etc). Although recipes and ingredients vary or almost similar from every regions , Soto is generally consists of shredded chicken or slices of meats with or without coconut milk. Served with hot steamed rice or lontong ( steamed rice rolls, compressed in banana leaves), ketupat. Pekalongan, known for its Batik, is a city on the central Java, Indonesia. I´ve got the recipe from Neni when I met her in Münich. I ´ve just made a little bit modification from her recipe.

I haven´t taken any cake decorating course, so my black forest doesn´t look beautiful like others. For the black forest cake , I don´t use margarine or butter. Despite lack of margarine or butter, the cake itself turned out pretty well. I thought, it´s already creamy enough from the mixture of whipped Cream and Mascarpone that are used to cover the cake.

Nothing can be beat ice cream to chill out, in the hot summer day. This is my second homemade ice cream after Cocopandan Ice cream. It sounds too much work to make my own ice cream, but I can create variations and select flavors, the ingredients, so I can have exactly what I want. Of course, it looks not as smooth like readymake ice cream from a store. I love homemade Ice Cream and cappuccino!
