All Your Children

I finally bought a waffle maker! It is a single rotating waffle maker which doesn't take too much space on my small kitchen counter top. This is a made in China brand with a weird name(Rohe) but I'm very happy with it. It is not very expensive and comes with an indicator light which tells you when the waffle maker is ready to use and done. The non stick grids make it easy to remove freshly cooked waffles and clean too.

Prior to the delivery, I looked up some waffles recipes and came across this. The name caught my attention, and this is the only recipe that I have tried. There was no turning back to others. This recipe yields only 3 waffles which is just right for me. Crisp, light and fluffy which is the texture everyone likes.

You can have waffles in many ways and I like it sweet and simple. Pure maple syrup with fruits, or plain with butter and syrup. These waffles do not taste nice on its own. The batter is really basic and easy to mix. It uses buttermilk and I always use real buttermilk, never substitutes.
It is fun to make waffles at home and even my children are making them for breakfast and tea. I bet they will not be ordering waffles at cafes anymore! These are like cafe standard or even better!

Children need the peace that comes from knowing they have a loving Heavenly Father who sent His son, Jesus Christ, to bring light and hope into the world.

All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
Isaiah 54:13

For I Am Sure

Kaya Butter Toast is our local people ultimate comfort food. Kaya is a traditional jam made from coconut milk, eggs and sugar. Some like to eat Kaya butter Toast for breakfast, others prefer it for tea. This toast set is usually accompanied by two soft cooked eggs eaten with a dash of dark soy sauce and white pepper.  The eggs are a perfect complement to the sweet toast. The thick kopi (coffee) or teh(tea) completes the meal.

White bread is usually toast on a hot grill and spread with a generous dollop of salted butter and thick kaya.
You can eat this toast by dipping into the soft boiled eggs, and slurp the rest down.  This kaya toast set is easily available everywhere in local kopitiams(coffee shops),food courts and shopping malls. But if you have sudden cravings of sweet kaya like me, you can make it at home too! This recipe doesn't require you to slave over the stove and stir the kaya for hours. Try! and you be amazed by how easy and quick you can prepare it!


45g white sugar
45g palm sugar, chopped
4-6 pandan leaves, cut about 3 inches long

  • Lightly whisk the yolk until smooth and well mixed. Add a little coconut milk and whisk until blended.

Nothing can separate us from God's love! God's love is steadfast, sturdy and inseparable! Paul is utterly convinced of God's love for us that he says.....

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor ruler, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8;38-39
