Braised Potatoes with Chicken Recipe

I drew inspiration from two dishes – the Tau Cheo Pork and Spiced Pork & Potato – and came up with this Braised Potatoes with Chicken Recipe that had a rich, robust flavour of good old fermented soy beans. The sauce was savoury and appetising. Definitely have to eat this with steamed rice. Yum. Braised […]

Claypot Tofu Recipe 砂锅豆腐

Claypot Tofu is one of my all-time favourite dishes to order at any tze char stall in Singapore because of its savoury gravy that goes very well with rice. And since I’m one who loves variety, I really like the idea of having a wide assortment of ingredients (vegetables, meats and/or seafood) in one single […]

Cashew Chicken Recipe

I think the beauty of Chinese stir-fries lies in its versatility and quick preparation time. We can almost create any stir-fry dish with whatever meat and/or vegetables we have in the fridge so long we have oyster and light soy sauces – which I’d say are the most useful, must-have sauces for every kitchen. Stir-fries […]

Cabbage and Pumpkin Rice Recipe

As we all know, rice is a staple in Chinese cuisine. While I don’t think rice tastes good on its own because it’s just plain and bland, it does pair beautifully with dishes that come with rich, savoury gravies or sauces. Also I like its versatility when it comes to cooking because there are endless […]

Stir Fried Pork with Crispy Yam Recipe

I bought a few lovely yams from the supermarket and ended up making a yam feast of claypot seafood with yam, yam rice, yam paste dessert and this, lol. I liked the texture and flavour of the crispy yam sticks that really reminded me of the potato sticks snack that I used to eat when […]

Emperor Herbs Chicken Recipe with Seah’s Spices

Seah’s Spices is one of the few local brands of spice mix that I use every now and then in my cooking. My previous attempts on making Salt-Roasted Chicken and Bak Kut Teh with their pre-mixed spices turned out really well. They were just so easy to prepare and were very tasty too. Godma has always […]

Minced Chicken Omelette Recipe

I was making some chicken dumplings earlier and had a small amount of minced chicken left so I decided to do an impromptu omelette dish. I don’t really consider this as a recipe per se since it doesn’t involve any complicated prep or require any special seasoning but I just thought I’d share how I ‘decorated’ […]

Tomato Egg Recipe

One of the husband’s favourite dishes from our usual mixed rice stall is a Tomato Egg dish that is sweet, tangy and saucy which really gives a lot of punch and flavour when doused over white rice. The only gripe I had with that was that it contained MSG and was quite oily so I tried recreating […]

Stir Fried Beef and Broccoli Recipe

I don’t really cook a lot of beef at home. I’ve never even tried grilling beef steak for dinner to date (though the husband has been asking for it for a long time) so it gives us a good excuse to go to a steakhouse for a good steak whenever we crave for it, lol. When […]

Stir Fried Beef with Spring Onions & Ginger Recipe

Using spring onions in a wok stir fry is an excellent way to impart this extra fragrance, sweetness and delicate flavour to any meat or seafood, be it fish slices, chicken, beef or even frog legs. And with the use of ginger slices, any possible fishy or gamey smell is just reduced to none. My […]

Salt-Roasted Chicken Recipe with Seah’s Spices

I was out grocery shopping with Godma earlier when she mentioned to me that she had made an excellent Emperor Herbs Chicken using prepacked spice mix from Seah’s Spices brand. She made it sound so good so I also bought a few varieties of spices to try at home. I started with making Salt-Roasted Chicken. This […]

Tau Cheo Pork Ribs Recipe

Tau Cheo (Fermented Soy Beans) Pork Ribs is another of Gran’s signature dishes so every time I make this, it really evokes memories of the good old days. I tweaked my recipe several times as I wanted to achieve that same balance of flavours in Gran’s version. Not exactly like hers yet but close enough […]

Pork & Prawn Potstickers Recipe 鲜肉锅贴

I love potstickers and I have had some really good ones at People’s Park Food Centre before but I can never imagine myself making them because it seems like a great deal of effort to do it so when I decided to make these, I must be really in an extremely good mood that day […]
