My first sourdough bread - not very pretty but extremely tasty

My first sourdough bread – not very pretty but extremely tasty

Hi there, dear friends 😀

I have been baking bread on and off for the past 12 years –  I got a bread machine as a farewell gift from my colleagues when I retired from the corporate world.  I just love the aroma of freshly baked breads wafting through my home, especially if I set a timer to the bread machine to start kneading the bread at 4am and I wake up to the smell of bread!  

However, my bread making skills are not very good – I can only make simple breads (white or wholemeal) and burger buns – it was easier to just buy the bread for my family 😳  …

Recently, my husband has been asking me many times to make sourdough bread but I have been putting off learning how to make the starter because it seemed like a long and tedious process to me.  

But after reading about the health benefits of eating sourdough bread, and how the sourdough starter can be used to make delicious waffles, pancakes, pretzels, pizzas, flatbread and muffins, too, I was all set to finally make my very first sourdough starter and bread.

Hi there, dear friends 😀

I was at Jason Foods at Bangsar Shopping Centre just now when I came across the above Rapunzel brand of vegetable bouillion cubes selling at RM16-49 per box there! Wow, that was really expensive ! 😯  

I used 2 cubes of Rapunzal Vegetable Bouillon to make a stock for cooking couscous (in bowl). Then I added grilled yellow & red bell peppers, onions and cherry tomatoes. My children loved the couscous!

Ladies and Gentlemen, do you have a PROGESTERONE DEFICIENCY ❓ 

Go to THIS WEBSITE and check out the top right hand corner of that page – fill up a questionnaire there to see if your progesterone level has declined over the years 💡

A Woman’s Roller Coaster Ride In Life – Menopause-d Yet? Part 1 : Bio-Identical Hormones To The Rescue!

What a ride!

Yep, I felt my mid-life was like that crazy  roller coaster ride!

Hi there, dear ladies  😀 

It took me a really long time to finally sit down here and write about my peri-menopausal journey (warning – lengthy post here 😆  )  In my Asian/Chinese culture, we hardly discuss openly about menopause and therefore, I didn’t have a lot of expectations or information on it until recently.

My mom never talked about her menopausal experience to me. Neither did my sister, who was 20 years older and who had passed away from cancer when she was 55.  I had thought menopause is merely the cessation of menstruation.  Simple. Period.

After reading up a lot on the Internet and from books on menopause  ( heheh, I was actually trying to find out how the other menopausal women were feeling and whether what I was going through was normal or not) , I found out that every woman’s menopausal experience is unique and different…sigh…it is like comparing your own childbirth experience with other women’s!
