Teochew Steamed Fish Recipe 潮州式蒸鳕鱼

I love fish but I’m somewhat scared of fish, lol. I remembered there was a time when I was still little and I was eating dinner in front of the TV. I accidentally swallowed a fish bone which caused me so much discomfort in the throat that Gran had to rush me to the GP. […]

Quick and Easy Sambal Sotong Recipe

A bottle of my favourite store-bought sambal chilli is always available in my pantry. I like Glory brand of Nonya Sambal Chilli Sauce that you can get from any leading supermarket here. It costs about S$2.20 per bottle from NTUC FairPrice. Whenever I need to do a quick stir-fry, I can just use the sambal […]

Sour Cream Chicken Recipe

For at least 1 day in a week, my cooking is likely to revolve around leftovers in the fridge. For example, a recipe may require only 50ml greek yogurt but supermarkets only sell 500ml tubs. Or perhaps I only need 100ml buttermilk to make waffles but again I can only buy 250ml cartons. This is why […]

Hoisin Chicken Recipe

The weekend is finally here (well, almost). There has been so much going on that I’m sort of feeling a little overwhelmed. And I’ve been ill for a month or so which makes it even more unpleasant. Had to go hospital because of a colon issue and then I was down (and I still am) […]

Crabstick, Prawn & Egg Tofu Recipe

Folks in Singapore, have you joined the Pokemon Go craze? I thought I wouldn’t initially but I eventually did because some of the Pokemon were just too cute (I love Squirtle) and I had so much fun catching & collecting them, lol. Best thing was, the husband and I started going on long walks which […]

Roasted Chicken with Sweet Onion Sauce Recipe

Yellow onions have a lovely natural sweetness in them which will be further enhanced when they are cooked longer. And that’s probably why caramelised onions always taste so good. I wanted to make a caramelised onion sauce initially but that would have taken me at least 45 minutes to whip up. I needed something quick […]

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 […]

Korean Army Stew | Budae Jjigae Recipe

Army stew is quite commonly found on the menus of most Korean restaurants in Singapore and is typically priced in the range of S$40-50 but the portion is often good enough to be shared by at least 4 persons. I would call this a Korean version of steamboat because it literally is a pot filled […]

Prawn Rolls Recipe (Faux Lobster Rolls)

This is what I call the Poor Man’s Lobster Roll, lol. Most of you are probably not unfamiliar with lobster rolls because they are one of the ‘in’ things to eat in Singapore. But the costs can be really expensive and you probably don’t even get a lot of lobster meat for what you pay. […]

Crispy Calamari with Gochujang Mayonnaise

I got the inspiration to make gochujang mayonnaise from Judy Joo’s “Korean Food Made Simple” on Food Network. And I thought that would be an excellent idea to boost the regular mayonnaise with an added punch of flavour. Fried food and mayonnaise always go hand in hand and since I had some squids in the […]

Tomato Chicken Stew with Quinoa and Chickpeas

This dish is like chicken braised in a minestrone-like soup. It’s tangy, sweet and fresh which really refreshes the palate. I served it with a simple and healthy quinoa which you can pair separately or alternatively, add them into the stew itself for a wholesome one pot meal. Tomato Chicken Stew with Quinoa and Chickpeas […]

Steamed Minced Chicken with Salted Fish Recipe

Inspired by my mother-in-law’s salted steamed minced pork, I thought I would do a leaner one with chicken and instead of using just salt, I added salted fish for a more robust flavour. In order to draw out the fragrance of salted fish, after I have soaked it in water and cut it into small […]

KFC Style Fried Chicken Recipe

I remembered coming across a copycat KFC fried chicken recipe while flipping through a recipe book at the library a while back. And sometime last year, I was watching this food programme on TV that gave an insight on how KFC made their O.R. chicken. There wasn’t any overnight marination and they merely dunked the chicken […]

Dorayaki Recipe (Japanese Red Bean Pancake)

The first time I heard of the word dorayaki was when I was a little kid because I often watched Doraemon on TV and the dorayaki was his favourite food. Probably that was also why I loved snacking on them because Doraemon made them look so tasty, lol. Anyway, the dorayaki is basically made up […]

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 […]

Asparagus, Mushroom and Prawn Risotto Recipe (using the new Corningware Retroflam fry pan)

Last week, I had introduced the new Corningware Retroflam cookware to all of you and also gave my review after putting the Corningware Retroflam casserole pot to the test with a Rice Wine Chicken recipe. My experience of using the cookware was better than expected. To read more about it, click on The New Corningware […]
