Welcome to my Foodie Blog

My foodie blog is where I will share my simple and no fuss recipes that my husband and I like and absolutely easy to try... At least we have tried.
I also love taking picture of the food so here it goes... a combination of cooking and photography... Enjoy

Perkedel // Frikadeller // Potato Crocquet

My 17 months old little girl loves Perkedel. She is a very picky eater and just develop her appetite back. So I decided to make this for her. Now, there are 2 things that got me slightly unmotivated. I usually failed to produce a fine perkedel - it always decided to disintegrate and turnd into mushy piles in my wok once they were put in hot oil and that we're still living in a rented room with no kitchen and let alone stove or proper cooking device... except for my mighty rice cooker... and so on ....yada yada yada yada.... I am just making excuses for myself.

Anyway, for the love of Tania and may she ate heartily... I decided to drag my lazy self and start making on perkedel. It turned out brilliantly!!! I ate 1/4th of them all of course... hehehehe....

For the picture props, I used Tania's small play plate, fork and spoon.

Lesson of the day: Failure only exist if you fail to try and try again... hehehehe
