Stuffed Peppers with Salsa Rice and Chicken

Normally, I would bake stuffed peppers in the oven with a layer of cheese on top just like this simple recipe with minced beef, onions and cherry tomatoes. This time round, I decided to make a one dish meal out of red peppers and hence used a mix of brown and red rice to bulk […]

Baked Brown Rice with Chicken, Mushrooms and Cheese

Casseroles or one dish meals make excellent weekday dinners. And honestly, this baked rice is so versatile, you can just use any ingredients you like especially if you have plenty of leftovers from your recent CNY feast or steamboat to use up – meatballs, bacon, ham, luncheon meat, sausages, bell peppers, broccoli, etc. Also, you […]

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 […]

Spicy Lemon Garlic Chicken Macaroni Recipe

This stir fried pasta dish is similar to my Spicy Lemon Garlic Chicken Spaghetti Recipe except that I have used macaroni as my choice of pasta. If you like oglio olio (spaghetti with garlic & oil) and don’t mind a little tang and heat, you are likely to enjoy this macaroni recipe as it has a great […]

Bak Kut Teh Recipe with Seah’s Spices

After my very successful attempt to make Salt-Roasted Chicken with Seah’s Spices prepacked spice mix, I was very eager to try out another one. The husband loves our Singapore’s local version of bak kut teh a lot because of its intense peppery flavour hence I decided to make this for dinner. Normally I’d prefer Malaysia’s version of BKT […]

You can serve this with rice, mashed potatoes or crusty bread. It’s one dish with multiple options. Simple and clean flavours, easy and cheap to […]

Pan-fried Chicken with Rockmelon Salad Recipe

Recently I had been trying to experiment with different combinations of fruits and vegetables to make a variety of healthy sides just so I wouldn’t have to repeat the usual. Inspired by my favourite parma ham and rockmelon pairing, I just wondered if the melon would go with a simple pan-fried chicken breast. Seemed really plain especially when […]

Hamburger Steak & Spaghetti Recipe

The husband asked if I would attempt to make hamburgers after stocking up on so much minced beef recently and that gave me an idea to reinvent my Meatballs with Gravy Recipe into a hamburger steak instead. For this recipe, I didn’t cook the patties in the oven as that might just dry them out so I […]

Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

My mum had once told me before that when she was still carrying me, she always had a craving for chicken pies besides nasi lemak (even in the wee hours of the night) though it wasn’t her favourite type of food. Seemed like I was born to eat chicken pies, lol. If my memory serves […]

Chicken Soba with Cashew Nut Sauce Recipe

If the husband and I are out having Japanese food, cold soba (buckwheat) noodle is one item we’d not miss out on. Even at home, I like to substitute other noodles with soba whenever possible as it’s really a healthier alternative that helps with weight management as it contains less calories than the standard spaghetti and […]

Chicken & Mushroom Meatball Recipe

My mum recently gave me a huge packet of dried shiitake mushrooms which I had enjoyed cooking with as they were so plump and juicy. I steamed a fish with them in Teochew-style, stir-fried them with vegetables and even braised them to make minced meat noodles. Definitely tasted so much better than the usual chinese mushrooms […]

Crispy Fried Sutchi Fish Recipe

There’s nothing better than panko breadcrumbs when it comes to frying food as they give that excellent crisp and crunch without it tasting like a heavy crust batter. Check out my other recipes which make good use of panko: Chicken Katsudon Tonkatsu Crispy Onion Rings Shark Fillet with Lemon Mustard Halibut with Pecorino Romano Panko […]

Char Siew Chicken Recipe

I bought a bottle of Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce from the supermarket without knowing what to use it for until the husband mentioned to me that his mum used Hoisin Sauce to make char siew marinate so that gave me an idea. And since the husband usually preferred chicken to pork for its lean proteins, I […]

Crab Meat, Asparagus & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

I came across a stir fry recipe in a low-GI cookbook recently and thought I’d reinvent it into something heartier. This is a speedy stir fry or Asian style salad as I would call it that’s really healthy and light on the stomach and low in fats & calories too. I’ve packed in asparagus and mushrooms […]

Crispy Salmon Fillet on Mashed Peas Recipe

I don’t like peas but I love mashed peas. It just reminds me of a friend who dislikes potatoes but loves french fries, lol. Well I don’t exactly hate peas as I can still eat them but I’d rather not if I have a choice. I’m not sure how on earth I’d have bought a […]
