Claypot Tofu Recipe ็ ‚้”…่ฑ†่…

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 […]

Seafood Pie Recipe

This is a pie with no pastry. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oven-baked fish or seafood pie is one of my favourite casserole recipes and definitely the ultimate comfort food. You can use almost any seafood of your choice and an assortment of vegetables (preferably hard ones that don’t turn mushy easily when cooked for too long). Paired with […]

Pumpkin Barley Risotto Recipe (Vegetarian)

When I first started adding barley into my stews to act as a thickener (see my Beef and Carrot Stew Recipe), I realise how versatile barley can be in both sweet (makes a lovely accompaniment to green bean soup!) and savoury dishes. Barley is low in GI and can be a great, healthy substitute to […]

Luncheon Meat Fried Rice Recipe

The first dish that Granny taught me to make when I was little was actually fried rice. It had chopped luncheon meat, diced char siew and frozen mixed vegetables in it. I remembered I was only 9 years old then and I was a member of the Brownies group in school. I had to learn […]

Teochew Steamed Fish Recipe ๆฝฎๅทžๅผ่’ธ้ณ•้ฑผ

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.ย 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) […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Scones Recipe

Time for whole wheat baking again! I’ve been doing it a lot recently because I’ve a huge bag of whole wheat flour to use up and I really don’t want to waste it. My first time making whole wheat scones. (If you don’t have or don’t like whole wheat flour, then replace entirely with all-purpose […]

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 […]
