As some of you may already know, my Normandy Apple Tart has been awarded the "Winner of Edibility" in December 2007 DMBLGIT, hosted by Dayna of Food and Photogaphy.
Although I have won twice in the past, I was nonetheless ectatic when my sweet friend Helen left a congratulatory comment to inform me the results were in! I was almost going to shut down my laptop when the news came. Needless to say, I was a happy girl that night, and went to bed wearing a broad grin.
The second piece of happy news: We are going back to Singapore and Malaysia on next Monday morning, which is less than 5 days from now! We will be home for 3 weeks, spending Chinese New Year with our families.
The night after we bought our airtickets, I was too excited about our trips that I had insomia. It persisited for the next few nights. I think my mind must be too busy planning on meeting friends, buying hard to find ingredients back to US, baking up a storm in my mum's new kitchen, learning some dishes from my mother in law and most importantly eating the local food! I will bring my camera back,in the hope of capturing some tasty meals I take to share with you. But I can't promise. It's too hard a task. The last time I brought my camera along to take some food shots, I managed to have totally forgotten about it until my stomach was full and the plates were mobbed clean!!
No recipe for this entry, but may I tease you with some cheesecakes? These are some cheesecakes I have made from Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook. A great book for anybody who love cheesecakes! I love all four of the cheesecakes I made from this book. Stories and recipes coming up soon!
