Thanks for all your prayers and concerns. I brought my son to the doctor today and he is now being referred to a heart specialist. Right now his heart beat is okay but just for pre caution, it is better to go for a thorough check.
Now that my mind is more at rest knowing nothing serious ….. I am off to my kitchen. ……….
I have tons of books but most of them, I just adored the pictures and then they are left sitting pretty on the shelves. These days, I have to refrain myself from buying more books.
Being not so proficient in reading Chinese ingredient list, my Chinese recipe books are very limited and generally books that are bilingual are not that worthy.
After trying the milk bread yesterday, I knew this book has some substance. So I am more confident in attempting another recipe. This time round, I chose Healthy Rye Loaf.
There is one ingredient that is missing but nevertheless, I still went ahead with it.
The texture of this dough is “hard” unlike the Milk Bread that I tried yesterday. It also didn’t increase volume too much in the first proof. But shaping this loaf is much easier.
I overlooked not incorporating the walnuts and the raisins in the final kneading thus resulted in my nuts and fruits being loop sided. Doesn’t it look like some freak with two eyes?
The texture is really nice. Soft and fluffy, a sweet tone too. I will increase more raisins next round as I like the soft fruits between bits. I am sure my hubby will like this too as there is nuts!
Perhaps if I have a chance that someone goes overseas, I might seek her/his help to buy me a copy. (yes, I am very lousy with online shopping and when the sites is full of Chinese words, I become paranoid).
