Baked Cheesecake w/Oreo

Been a while since I baked after giving birth.. Was talking to my helper about my glorious baking days. And since I have been wanting to have cakes & such due to always hungry from breastfeeding thus decided to bake my own. 

Tried the recipe that I saved from Japan tasemade. Doesnt require my kitchenaid and I took out my blender and thats all I need. Fast fast ran and prepare the ingredients, popped into the oven while my poor helper have to pacify the noti lil king.. 

After 40mins, cool them for about 2-3hours and into the fridge it goes. Had 1 after dinner and find that it taste good. Only bad was the lemon zest that I itchy hands and throw them in! Haiz~~ Shall make them again!!

Cheat Dish - Sweet & Sour Fruitty Lychee Chix Bites

A fast & cheat dish when I ran out of ideas on our meat dishes. Usually I try to plan for 2 vegetable dishes. And since I dont want to have any egg dish as we had braised eggs for dinner last night, I decide to make the kids' favourite. 

With a tomato, canned lychee, it is so easy. As for chicken, I normally buy those frozen crispy chicken chunks so that the whole house wont be oily and difficult to clean up after. Adding a Spinach Fishball soup & Sambal Kangkong, we are ready to go. If really want to be fast, just omit frying a Kangkong! 

I normally baked those crispy bites instead of deep-frying them. At least wont be too oily, and also can purge out some oil/fats! Frying the sauce takes less than 10mins. It takes about 15-20mins as I baked the chicken and make the sauce! Slurp~~

Seperate the chicken & gravy so it wont be too soggy for those who eat late. =)
