Soba Noodle Salad Recipe and Kewpie Sesame Soy Sauce Dressing

I first came across this new Kewpie product when I was doing grocery shopping at Fairprice sometime last year. It was retailing at about S$5.80 per 210ml bottle. Bought one bottle, tried it and just loved that savoury & nutty flavour that made salads taste really yummy. Couple of months later, I was shopping at […]

Stewed Pork Chops with Bitter Gourd Recipe

I really couldn’t recall where and when I had a similar dish like this before. Perhaps at some Teochew porridge stall or maybe Gramp had made it when I was little as he was so fond of the canned stewed pork chops then. All I remembered was that the dish was really savoury and tasty […]

King Oyster Mushroom Aglio Olio Recipe

I think the king oyster mushroom really makes a great vegetarian substitute to meat because its texture is firm with an excellent bite and it doesn’t have a strong earthy smell like its other mushroom friends. Use it in stir fries or grill them on a griddle pan – yummy! I’ve been buying these lovely […]

Guacamole & Grilled Chicken Wrap Recipe

I got these gorgeous spinach and tomato tortilla wraps from Melvados that came in a bigger size of 30cm diameter and decided to make some chicken wraps for dinner. Couldn’t resist buying a few bags of our favourite Kettle chips (honey dijon & jalapeño are yum!) too to eat with the guacamole I made. I […]

Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng Recipe for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year has been a quiet one for me last week so I’m quite relieved that today is already 初五 (5th day of CNY). Though I started the day at the doctor’s getting my X-ray done for a knee & foot injury, I’m happy to see that most shops if not all have resumed […]

Spicy Stir Fried Tempeh with Crab Meat Recipe

Sounds like a weird dish eh? Well, my newest creation is kind of similar to my earlier Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe, both of which were inspired by my favourite sambal goreng dish. This time, I added a touch of fusion element by combining Asian & Western flavours. The tip is to use fresh crab […]

Kimchi Pancake Recipe

I had half a pack of kimchi left in the fridge after making bibimbap the night before and thought I’d use it to make kimchijeon (kimchi pancake) as a tea time snack. If you have prawns or squids, you can always turn this into a more substantial seafood pancake. Just need to double the portion of ingredients […]

12 Easy Chinese New Year Recipes for Good Luck & Prosperity

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, everyone must have made or are making plans for the reunion dinner and/or CNY lunch. Some probably prefer to eat out to save the hassle of cooking and washing up. Some would probably turn to buffet catering to feed a large family. There is also the option of having […]

Sweet & Spicy Crab Stick Salad Recipe

I don’t normally fancy those packet imitation crab sticks that much because they are just like artificially-flavoured & artificially-coloured fish cakes. However, when I came across this crispy crab stick crackers at a temporary makeshift snacks stall in my neighbourhood, I thought it would be fun to try making the same at home. And yes, so I […]

Mango Prawns Salad Recipe

I made this simple Mango Prawns Salad with inspiration from my other recipe, Cajun Spiced Salmon with Mango Salsa that was featured in Singapore’s Shape Magazine months ago. I loved the flavour of the Cajun spice mix that was further accentuated by the sweetness of the mango. The tartness & acidity from the lemon or lime juice just balanced […]

Oven Baked Falafel Recipe

I’d been thinking of making falafels at home for quite some time but I found it a hassle to deep fry them (well, besides being heaty) when I only needed a quick (hopefully healthy) bite as a snack. So yes, oven baking was the only way out. I added panko to the chickpeas to bulk them up […]

Dried Scallops & Steamed Silken Tofu Recipe

Another of my latest creations is this healthy & easy-to-make steamed tofu recipe that only requires minimal seasoning so you can enjoy the natural flavour of silken tofu and the sweetness of the dried scallops. If served as one of a few dishes in a meal, this is definitely enough for 2-3 persons to share. […]

Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe

Mashed potato is such a classic dish that I’m sure most of us have eaten a lot of it since we were little. While I like those with creamy textures that almost melt in the mouth, the coarsely mashed ones are equally tasty especially if you don’t mind eating potato skins. I like to keep […]

Pasta Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

Every now and then, I like to make a salad for dinner on the first or second weeknight especially after a weekend of non-stop indulgence which is all I crave to detoxify myself from inside out, lol. For this pasta salad recipe, I made a wholegrain mustard dressing that was inspired by a side salad I had […]

Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

Inspired by one of my favourite dishes, Sambal Goreng (fried tempeh, firm tofu & long beans in a spicy sambal paste) which we can always get from any nasi padang stall. Instead of using long beans, I substituted with broccoli florets instead and added an extra touch of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sweet […]

Tempeh, Tofu & Avocado Salad Recipe

This is another rendition of my Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Recipe that I just made up on the spot the other day for lunch after I came back from gym. While I decided to keep the hard-boiled egg in this, I substituted the bacon with firm tofu and tempeh (fermented soybeans) hence making this a […]
