But I always have to make this cookies very last minutes as the tarts will get bad less than 2 weeks. Partly due to low sugar and no preservatives are added.

Poached fish with Onions and Limes dressing 青柠洋葱水煮鱼

This is a very nice fish recipe that i learnt from my mother. The method of cooking this fish is using poaching method. Simmer the fish in hot water instead of the usual way of steaming it. This method resulted moist fish texture if compare to steaming method ( the flesh tasted dry if over steamed or not enjoy it immediately).

Bear wholemeal Pull-Apart bread_Natural yeast天然酵母_小熊小面包

My bread baking journey has begun with natural yeast, i guess it is quite hard for me to use back instant yeast to bake bread. There is nothing wrong baking bread with instant yeast, at least still homebaked bread. Since i have natural yeast, and i need to keep it active and alive, so i have to bake more often with it. Furthermore it has more nutritious than normal bread.

Making Natural Yeast (Sourdough starter) 自制_ 天然酵母 (面粉和水)

This is not my first time dealing with natural yeast. The first time i made natural yeast with apple. I didn't continue to bake with the first natural yeast as that time i was a busy working mom (it was 4 years back) and also has limited information of maintaining a natural yeast (the first natural yeast cookbook i bought was in Japanese, Lolz). Until few months back, i met two new friends and now became lost sisters ^_^, Jennifer and Elvina. Jennifer has been baking with natural yeast whereas Elvina love to eat sourdough bread (she is expert in eating very rusty sourdough bread which taste sour , hard and thick crust ^_^). Slowly i was influenced by them and start back to make my own natural yeast with the consultation by Jennifer and few of my Instagram's friends. This time i made Sourdough starter just using flour and water. There are many ways to get natural yeast, Asian way usually used dried fruits or fresh fruits to make yeast water then add flour to make the starter. This time i prefer simple way of natural yeast using sourdough method, just need flour and water, which are easily obtain in my kitchen. Some of you might already know the benefits of baking with natural yeast, if you not, please google for the answers as i am not the expert to tell you the benefits. Some of you may ask me will the bread using sourdough starter tasted sour? If you are making a rustic country bread, yes, it taste sour because of long fermentation. If you using it to make Asian sweet buns,even you can make into bao or kuih-muih, you will not taste sour because the short fermentation and the way of keeping the starter (will share later).
