Fruity and Creamy Puff Pastry

My hubby brought large puff pastry at home and I really don’t know what should I do with it aside from eating it as it is, so I asked question in yahoo answers if anybody knows a good recipe for it and somebody answered me to make it into this one. The result was really yummy and it was gone like a wind from the moment I served it. To the one who gave me thsi recipe, thanks a bunch! 🙂

3 pcs. large puff pastry
1 can 350 g fruit cocktail
1 can 170 g strawberry flavored cream
1 ½ cups cream cheese
½ cup condensed milk
confectioners sugar (optional)

1. In a bowl, combine fruit cocktail, strawberry flavored cream, cream cheese and condensed milk altogether. Mix well.
2. Line shallow dish (the same size of the pastry) with one puff pastry, spread half of the cream mixture over it.
3. Cover with another puff pastry, spread 2/3 of the remaining half of the mixture over the pastry and cover again with the remaining last or third pastry.
4. Use the remaining cream mixture to garnish it. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar if desired.
5. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. (sliced according to your desired sizes)


Baked Stuffed Squid with Mushroom Sauce

This post is mainly about baked and stuffed squid. Forget about mushroom sauce because I used instant mushroom sauce powder that my hubby bought from somewhere. Actually, this might be the simplest way to stuff squid but I tell you, it was really yummy. The mushroom saucde made it more yummier also.  

1 large squid (about 750 gm or bigger)
1 large onion, shopped
2 tbsp. ginger strips
Instant Mushroom sauce

1. Wash squid, make several slit on its belly horizontally, enough to insert the spices.
2. Stuff with onion, ginger and pepper.
3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Baked in a preheated 250 degrees Celsius oven for 30-45 minutes.
5. Prepare the mushroom sauce.
6. Pour over the baked squid and serve.
