Black Vinegar Chicken Recipe 黑醋鸡

I think one of my neighbours must have recently welcomed a new little bundle of joy in the family because I’ve been smelling the aroma of Pig Trotters In Vinegar (猪脚醋) and Sesame Oil Chicken (麻油鸡) almost everyday. They are common dishes that new mommies will have when they are in confinement (坐月子) after giving […]

Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe

This is what I call the fish version of a 咕噜肉 (‘gu lou yok’ or Cantonese-style sweet & sour pork) and I’m sure this Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe will be much healthier (with lots of omega-3 fatty acids too) than its deep-fried fatty pork counterpart. As salmon itself is very oily, there is no […]

Ma La Xiang Guo Recipe 麻辣香锅

When I first tried Ri Ri Hong Ma La Xiang Guo (日日红麻辣香锅) at People’s Park Food Centre a long while back, I was blown away by that incredibly numbing and spicy flavour of that big bowl that was filled with all my favourite ingredients. Everything went so well with rice. It was like having a […]

Chicken Radish Soup Recipe 白萝卜鸡汤

Time for some detoxification to ease those guilt from weekend overeating. And one of the best things to have would be a hot Chicken Radish Soup that’s not only tasty but nutritious and ‘cooling’ for the body too. Radish is an affordable root vegetable that has so many health benefits that most of us probably […]

The New Corningware Retroflam Cookware and a Rice Wine Chicken Recipe

Finding the best cookware is never an easy task because there are so many different brands in the market today that offer almost similar functionalities at possibly the same price range too. When I finally had my own place after getting married, I stocked up my kitchen with a whole bunch of fanciful kitchen tools […]

Fried Mee Tai Mak Recipe

Mee Tai Mak (米苔目) is one of my favourite varieties of Chinese rice noodles. It’s also known as Lao Shu Fen (老鼠粉) which sounds kinda cute, haha. I guess the name came about because of the shape of the noodle which is tapered like a mouse tail. Besides having mee tai mak in soup, it […]

Steamed Red Snapper Recipe

* This post is published in collaboration with Lee Kum Kee. This Sauce for Fried Cod Fillet from Lee Kum Kee is obviously for dousing over a piece of fried cod but since I never really like frying fish much (mostly because I don’t want to stink up the house as I have an open-concept […]

Kung Pao Tofu Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao Chicken. Kung Pao Pork. Kung Pao Prawns. I just love ’em all. I think the kung pao sauce is simply one of the best in Chinese cuisine, imo. It’s spicy, sweet, savoury and nutty – sure to reignite the tastebuds and leave us wanting more. I decided to try something new this time. […]

Fan Choy Recipe

Fan Choy (饭菜 in Cantonese) is what I call the ‘dim sum version’ of the char siew rice which is affordably priced (small portion though) and readily available at those stalls selling dim sum and steamed buns at hawker centres or coffeeshops. For my recipe, I chose to use brown rice (it’s healthier than white!) […]

Stuffed Cucumbers Recipe

I came up with this dish after getting some cooking inspiration from a home-cooked meal at a friend’s house some weeks back. She had cooked this stuffed cucumber soup in which minced pork and prawns were used for the stuffing but for my version, I opted for minced chicken, glass noodles and Chinese mushrooms. Instead […]

Honey Garlic Ribs Recipe (with Lee Kum Kee sauce)

A couple of days ago, I shared a Stir Fried Prawns with XO Sauce Recipe on which I also introduced and reviewed the brand new Seafood XO Sauce from Lee Kum Kee. In the same CNY gift pack I received, there was also this Sauce for Honey Garlic Spare Ribs which I thought would be […]

Brand New Lee Kum Kee Seafood XO Sauce and a Stir Fried Prawns with XO Sauce Recipe

XO sauce is a spicy salty seafood sauce commonly used in Cantonese cuisine and is also a popular choice of condiment to go with dim sum. Some of the best XO sauces I ever had were from Super Star Seafood Restaurant 鴻星海鮮酒家 in Hong Kong and Rabbit Brand Seafood Delicacies at Circular Road, Singapore. XO […]

Minced Chicken with Salted Mustard and Tomatoes

There’s no better time than now to have simple porridge fare with a dish like this cos’ most of us would probably be feasting to our tummies’ content from next weekend onwards as it’s going to be the Lunar New Year! I don’t really eat salted or pickled vegetables that much because of their high […]

Chinese New Year Recipes – Happy Monkey Year 2016

We are going to usher in the Year of the Monkey in just less than 3 weeks’ time. This year I will be having my reunion dinner a few days earlier as my hubby will be away for the whole of the CNY period and I haven’t started stocking up on ingredients yet. Coming up […]

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 […]
