Fish Maw Soup Recipe 鱼鳔蟹肉羹

Today’s weather seems rather erratic. Woke up to a morning of haze and then it began raining cats & dogs for hours. What a depressing start for a Friday. Thought I would make something comforting, just to chase away the blues. Gotta be a hot & piping, hearty & wholesome soup. This is Fish Maw […]

Braised Chicken with Chestnuts Recipe

Hadn’t been able to blog as often as I wished to recently as I had been tied up with other work. Needed time to work on a BIG project too as Spring Tomorrow will be undergoing a major revamp! Well, I don’t have a specific date to roll out the new site yet as there […]

Chicken Meatball and Cucumber Soup Recipe

A simple, comforting soup dish which you can easily make if you always have homemade chicken broth ready in the freezer or fridge. If no, you can always make one by dissolving 2 chicken stock cubes in 1 litre of hot water. Meatballs wise, I chose to use lean minced chicken to keep this lower […]

Penang Char Kway Teow Recipe

Char kway teow is basically stir fried flat rice noodles with typical ingredients like lup cheong (Chinese sausage), prawns, beansprouts, etc. The Penang-style char kway teow is similar to our local Hokkien-style char kway teow (click on the link for recipe) except no sweet soy sauce is used. As lup cheong releases oil when fried, […]

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 […]

Kung Pao Lotus Root Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao dishes need no further introduction. They are so common and easily available at Chinese takeaways and restaurants. I have shared two Kung Pao recipes previously: Kung Pao Chicken Kung Pao Tofu (vegetarian) And this time, I’ve made another vegetarian version with lotus root and other vegetables. The crunch of the vegetables and cashew […]

Oven-Baked Fermented Bean Curd Chicken Recipe

“I was running around the hospital frantically. Desperately opening the door to every room along the way. No, it wasn’t her. Where was she? Then I met him and asked him which room Granny was in. He said ’43’. I ran all the way towards the end of the corridor and found room 43. When […]

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 […]

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 […]

Honey Lemon Pepper & Pork Stir Fry Recipe

A few days ago, I posted a Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe. Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy Chinese stir fry recipe in which I’ve also incorporated honey and lemon. This dish tastes sweet and tangy with a little heat from fresh red chillies. You can substitute the pork with either chicken or fish because […]

Steamed Minced Pork Recipe (with tomatoes)

When we have Teochew porridge outside, it’s quite common to find minced pork patties with tung choy (or 冬菜) which is a kind of preserved vegetable or salted fish. While these pork patties can be really delicious, they are also extremely salty. I don’t encourage frequent consumption of preserved food stuffs so that gives me […]

Steamed Eggplant Recipe (with Garlic Sauce)

Since I had my thyroid surgery, my doctor had strongly discouraged me from eating cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower because he said these were the vegetables that could promote ‘growth’ and because I still have a few small cysts on my right thyroid that’s still intact, I’m at risk for future complication should any of the […]

Seafood Bee Hoon Recipe

Or should I call it Japchae-style seafood noodles? I drew inspiration from Japchae (a Korean stir-fry dish of sweet potato noodles or ‘dangmyeon’ and vegetables) and combined it with rice vermicelli (‘bee hoon’) to create this wet seafood bee hoon. It’s my rendition of the famous Sembawang white bee hoon with a Korean touch 😉 […]

Chinese Braised Chicken Recipe

A Chinese braised dish is what I call the epitome of traditional Teochew home cooking. It’s like one of the classics that every Teochew family would know how to make. If you’ve been following my blog since its early days, you’d notice the first recipe I shared was a Tau Yu Bak Recipe (Braised Pork […]

Teochew Style Yam Rice Recipe

The last time I had yam rice was at my mum’s when she ‘anyhow’ made up one without a specific recipe in mind. That was just one of the very few occasions I would have dinner at her home since I got married because when she did cook, she didn’t seem to know how to […]

Steamed Chicken Recipe (with Ginger)

Those who have tried my Rice Cooker Chicken Claypot Rice Recipe might find the taste of this dish somewhat familiar because that was where I extracted the idea of doing this steamed chicken by using a similar seasoning sauce – one that’s rich, salty, savoury and sweet with a touch of zing from fresh ginger […]
