  1. Hi Rose, I came across you blog and I like all the recipe. It reminds me of home. By the way, I can’t find buah keras here in US. What can I replace it with?

  2. Hi Wan,
    Thanks for your interest in my blog. I hope you will enjoy trying out the recipes. You can try replacing buah keras with almonds or cashew nuts.

  4. Thank God for being such a blessing to so many with your generosity. May God’s abundant blessings be with you always!

    I am looking for a spare rib recipe using crockpot to cook. My last maid used to cook it, but i forgot to keep the recipe. It’s the type that taste like ayam sio but without the tamarind. It only has a little gravy and taste a little salty. I can’t remember what ingredients were used and how to cook it. Hope you can help. Tq.

    God Bless
