I tried a couple new recipes. Actually, one yesterday; and one today. I have been wanting to make/try some Kerapok Lekor for a while now. One of my pen pals wrote to me about it and said it is her favorite. I was literally talking to the letter as I was reading it.. "Oh, that sounds good. I want to try it."  Lol  So, I googled it. I found a couple blogs with recipes, but 1. I could not find Mackerel ANYWHERE. 2. I could not find Tapioca Flour anywhere, either.  Then, I found an "American Version". Woo Hoo! I had a little bit of a problem getting it to all stick together in order to make a log to cut. I even put more tuna fish in. (Two of the little tuna pouches that are 2.6 ounces, each; so total 5.2 ounces of tuna fish, I used?) It still wouldn't all clump together. So... I took it all out and put it back in the bowl, and added one egg. So... I probably totally changed the whole recipe. But..   

Here is the little patties before frying..  

..and after. Mine don't look anything like hers. :/ But, they did taste good. :)  

I couldn't find any chili sauce that looked good to me. (I do not like hot sauce, anyway.)  So... I got some Chipolte Sauce. Lol.  I thought they were pretty good.  Here is a blog with Keropok Lekor made with Mackerel and Tapioca Flour. Here is the blog with the American Version, that I tried. 

And here is the new recipe I tried for breakfast this morning. Mini German Pancakes, with Triple Berry Sauce. Hers look so much prettier. :(  I think she used a special pan. I just used muffin tins. (Which is what the recipe said to do..) They are yummy. A little time consuming, if you make the Triple Berry Sauce.  The link for that is on her blog, too. My computer must be having issues, because every time I tried to click on her link, it wouldn't work. But then I did a google search for Triple Berry Sauce, and her blog (with the original link that I tried to click on) came up.  Weird..  Anyway, if you do make these- I didn't take the one pan out right at fifteen minutes, and they did get a little over done. They will still look "liquid-y" on top, but don't let that fool you. They also fall a little after you take them out. I opened the oven and was like "What? How am I going to put the berry sauce in those?"..  Lol  But they do fall a little to make little "cups".  :)
