Spicy Almond Chicken Pasta Recipe

The sauce for this Spicy Almond Chicken Pasta is basically almond satay sauce i.e. satay sauce made with almonds instead of peanuts. Actually I wanted to make real satay sauce but realised I ran out of peanuts so I used almonds which are always available in my pantry for breakfast oats or cereals. Turned out […]

Soy Milk Porridge Recipe 豆浆糙米粥

I had unsweetened soy milk in the fridge to use up and since I was planning to cook porridge, thought I would just add the soy milk into it and see how it would turn out. I liked the fragrance of the soy milk in the porridge which also gave extra depth of richness and […]

Korean Bibimbap Recipe 韩国拌饭

I realise I have been cooking a lot of Korean dishes at home recently. Probably because I’m back into watching Korean dramas and I always see the characters having home cooked meals of rice, soup, kimchi & the like for almost every meal. It is pretty common to eat bibimbap (‘mixed rice’) out of a […]

Sour Cream Pasta Recipe

Cooking with healthier alternatives like reduced fat or fat free yogurt or sour cream almost always result in a split sauce. I used to think that split sauces are cooking disasters until when I watched this food program that showcased good eats in Taiwan. In it, they introduced this Savoury Soy Milk that was served […]

Spicy Chicken Spaghetti Recipe

A fiery kick from the chilli flakes combined with the citrusy flavour of the lemon and the sharpness of the garlic makes this dish really refreshing and appetizing. The husband devoured his entire plate in no time and even asked for a second helping. 🙂 I did not specify an amount of chilli flakes to […]

Japanese Chicken Katsudon Recipe

Chicken katsudon is a Japanese-style fried chicken cutlet rice bowl. Some restaurants like to serve the chicken katsu with a sweet & tangy sauce that’s made with ketchup and Worcestershire sauce but I prefer mine with dashi stock, egg and onions. My husband enjoyed the chicken because the outside was crispy and the inside was […]

Corn & Pumpkin Pasta with Butter Seared Flounder

I would say this is a clean-eating recipe as I just want to keep all ingredients fresh and natural including the sauce for the pasta which is basically made of pumpkin puree. Pumpkin itself is quite sweet and I’ve always like adding pumpkin puree into porridge to give it flavour so I don’t have to […]

Pumpkin Barley Risotto Recipe (Vegetarian)

When I first started adding barley into my stews to act as a thickener (see my Beef and Carrot Stew Recipe), I realise how versatile barley can be in both sweet (makes a lovely accompaniment to green bean soup!) and savoury dishes. Barley is low in GI and can be a great, healthy substitute to […]

Luncheon Meat Fried Rice Recipe

The first dish that Granny taught me to make when I was little was actually fried rice. It had chopped luncheon meat, diced char siew and frozen mixed vegetables in it. I remembered I was only 9 years old then and I was a member of the Brownies group in school. I had to learn […]

Garlic Chicken Mushroom Pasta Recipe

I really love ‘evaporated milk pastas’ because they are so quick and easy to make just like fried rice. I would always stock up my pantry with cans of reduced fat evaporated milk and on days when I’m eating alone, I would just whip up a simple pasta dish using the milk to give it […]

Rice Payasam | Kheer Recipe

I remembered the first time I tried kheer (term used in North India) or payasam (South India) at an Indian restaurant, I fell in love with the rice pudding that was sweet, creamy and milky with a lovely cardamom flavour and rose water fragrance. It was made with full fat milk and basmati rice and […]

Oyakodon Recipe (Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl)

Oyakodon is a Japanese dish in which chicken and egg are simmered together in a sauce and then served over rice. For my version, I used boneless chicken leg which I roasted in the oven to give it a crispy, golden brown crust and I served it with brown rice as a low-GI option. A […]

Japanese Curry Soba Noodles Recipe

Japanese curry soba noodles? Perhaps curry udon or curry ramen is more common here in Singapore but since I’m so hooked onto soba noodles these days, I just want to give this combination a try. The curry tastes so robust (I like S&B brand of Japanese curry sauce mix) and the gravy is good enough […]

Braised Chicken and Macaroni in Tomato Sauce

This is a quick-fix pasta meal that is perfect for a weekday dinner. It mainly uses ingredients and seasonings that you probably already have in your fridge and/or pantry. I served the braised chicken with macaroni but you can use any pasta of your choice or with crusty bread if you like. Braised Chicken and […]

Stir Fried Rice Cake Recipe

Do you sometimes crave for certain food after watching TV especially food or cooking programmes? I made chicken and waffles the other day because I had a huge craving for fried chicken and crispy waffles after watching an episode of Junk Food Flip on Food Network. And after watching a Korean drama on Channel U […]
