What's cooking/baking: Part 2 (Salmon wellington,Sweet potato pie,Chrissy Teigen's 'Cravings')There's a lot of cooking and baking videos on Facebook nowadays. Also a lottt of great cookbooks. I love trying out new recipes so I definitely watch a lot of cooking videos/shows and read cookbooks. I have so many cookbooks/baking books!
One day while I was browsing Facebook, I saw this video recipe on salmon wellington by Tasty( by Buzzfeed) and I knew that I had to make it.
I bought all of the ingredients (a good salmon fillet is the key) which was pretty pricey but it was so worth it. The only thing that I couldn't get was spinach so I used red spinach instead which worked just fine. The recipe is on point! It has a buttery crust and the creamy spinach mixture You can try the recipe via this link:
2. Patti La Belle's Sweet Potato Pie
Months ago, back in December last YEAR(totally forgot to blog about it!!), I baked a really delicious sweet potato pie after I saw this video below:
I knew that when I saw that video, I have to find the recipe and bake it myself..because i've never seen it being sold anywhere. Let me tell you that it's very decadent. It has a very buttery flaky crust and the filling is just sinful.
Something that you don't expect from sweet potatoes. It's definitely a pie that's meant for sharing as one slice is very filling. You can try to bake the pie from this recipe and it makes a very beautiful pie:
3. Chrissy Teigen's Cravings cookbook
So naturally when she came out with her own cookbook, I knew I had to get it!
I've only tried two of her recipes and I love both of them.
I'd definitely make this salad again!In fact, I'll be making it again this week :)
As you know, I love to bake.
During ramadhan I baked..40 jars of chocolate chip cookies which were ordered by my family and friends. A lot considering that I have a full time job as well.

5. More Cooking!
One day, I was feeling really poorly( sick) so my dear husband cooked rice porridge all by himself. The first pot, he burned the rice porridge because he left it on the stove while picking up our nieces from their pre school haha. He had to cook it all over again. But I just love it!
I bought a lot of japanese sweet potatoes because it was selling for cheap at the supermarket. I boiled a lot them, mashed it up and mixed it with some daging dendeng, chopped onions,peppers and scallions..a lil bit of salt and pepper..dipped it in egg and coat with breadcrumbs. I freeze them so that I can have croquette anytime!
