One of my favorite drinks beside sprite and coffee is smoothie. I mean its healthy, right? do you agree? haha.
A couple weeks ago, I made a smoothie the night before and then drink it the next morning. For one week, I drank smoothie in the morning and I feel very refreshing and healthy at the same time and some more, smoothies are very easy to make and you can use any kind of ingredients like fruits, veggies, you name it.
So, today I am going to share with you recipe of my homemade smoothie! So lets start!
- Fruits or Veggies (you choose! :)) For these smoothies, I use grapes, strawberries, celeries, banana and apples!
Method : Blend the both ingredients until smooth.
Recently I’ve started a new instagram account where I share photos of my homemade food at home. This idea comes to my mind because I want to practice my baking and cooking skills. My concept is to incorporate one ingredient to my homemade food for 6 days straight. After 6 days, I am going to change the ingredient.
So after trying for 2 months, I see a little bit improvement in my cooking and baking skills. and I say to myself why not share some of the recipes to the blog.
For this week, the ingredient I am going to use is rolled oats. And so here I am. Today I am going to share with you the recipe of my simple homemade overnight oatmeal.a
- 4 tbsp rolled oats
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of apple yogurt
- 1/2 cup of sliced mango
- Mix all the ingredients in a jar and put in the fridge overnight.
- Serve and Enjoy.
My family and I joined the Bali Marathon 2017 which was held on last Sunday.
We went to Bali on Friday and yesterday we came back to Medan.
Here’s few photos that I took during my short trip.
Happy Birthday to my Dad who loves to eat milk bread buns whether its day or night. He actually started to eat milk bread buns this year and I’m sure he can eat them everyday and never getting bored with it. He loves to buy milk bread buns from local bakery nearby our home. And because of that, I decided to make my own milk bread buns for his Birthday.
A. Tangzhong Method :
- 25 gr bread flour
- 1/4 cup fresh milk
- 1/4 cup water
B. Milk Bread Buns
- 350 gr bread flour
- 1/2 cup warm milk
- 40 gr sugar
- 55 gr egg
- 30 gr softened butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp instant yeast
- Cook 25 gr bread flour, 1/4 cup fresh milk and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan until thick and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let it cool on the fridge [Tangzhong Method].
- In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup warm milk with 2 tsp instant yeast.
- Whisk the warm milk mixture with egg and the Tangzhong.
- In another bowl, sift in bread flour, salt and sugar. Add in the yeast milk mixture and butter. Knead until it becomes a smooth dough.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise slowly in the fridge [Overnight or 18 hours].
- The next day, take out dough from the fridge and let it rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes – 1 hour [depending on how warm your kitchen is].
- Divide the dough into 10 portions. Place them on a pan and cover loosely with plastic wrap and let it rise for about 1 hour or until the dough doubled.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.
- Brush the top of dough with egg wash and a splash of water and sprinkle sesame on top.
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
- Let the bread cool inside the pan for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, take out from the pan and let it cool on a cooling rack.
- Serve and Enjoy.
