Simple Mushrooms & Leek Stir Fry

My Daughter has taken a liking to mushrooms ever since we had a simple mushroom dish served in a restaurant. It was shitake mushrooms simply stir fried in butter with garlic & black pepper. Here's my recreation with leeks and parsley added.

 Simple Mushrooms & Leek Stir Fry

Mushrooms (Any type or combinations, sliced)
1 -2 Leeks
1 Tbs Garlic
1/4 tsp dried Parsley  
Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
1 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs cooking oil

Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon cooking oil together in a pan. Saute garlic on low heat till fragrant but not brown, add leeks, stir fry till leeks are half cooked. Add in the mushrooms, season with salt & cracked black pepper, add a little water if necessary and stir fry until fully cooked. 

Simple, simple, simple!

German Potato Cookies

These cookies have been popping up in blogs everywhere lately and being 'kiasu' (a Hokkien phrase which literally means scared of losing out) I didn't want to get left behind and  jumped in the bandwagon too! Haha!

Sandy, melt in the mouth and at the same time light & tender with a buttery potatoe-y taste. Reminds me of melting moments cookies.

Recipe taken from 'Small Small Baker' here.


125g butter
40g icing sugar, sifted
125g potato starch
80g superfine flour


1. Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and pale in colour.
2. Sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form a soft dough.
3. Roll into small balls (about 2cm in diameter), arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork (dip the fork in water after each press to prevent cookie dough from sticking to the fork).
4. Bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 15 mins.
