Five Spice Chicken Recipe

Five spice powder is one of my favourite spice mixtures which I would frequently use as a spice rub for roasted meats (Crispy Roast Pork Recipe) or as a seasoning powder for fried foods (Salt & Pepper Chicken Recipe, Crispy Calamari Recipe). I did a Stir Fried Satay Chicken not too long ago and I […]

Teochew Steamed Pomfret Recipe

Whenever I think of Teochew cuisine, I would also get reminded of Granny’s cooking – the humble, homely fare that I used to eat when I was little. Nothing pretentious or over the top. It was simple food that wasn’t heavy-handed but it always tasted good because Granny was particular about the freshness of the […]

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 […]

Mee Goreng Style Spicy Fried Spaghetti Recipe

This Spicy Fried Spaghetti Recipe is almost similar to my Mee Goreng Recipe except that spaghetti noodles are used instead of the regular thick yellow noodles. I actually prefer the former for this dish because it doesn’t have the same alkaline flavour as the thick yellow noodles. And if you cook the spaghetti al dente, […]

Honey Lemon Chicken with Baby Spinach & Potato Hash Recipe

Ok, this is not my first time sharing a Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe. It’s normally how I like my chicken to be roasted because the combination of honey and lemon just gives the meat so much flavour and it adds a slightly tangy note too. What I really wanted to feature this time round is […]

Steamed Meatballs with Pumpkin Recipe

I just randomly made up this dish because I had a big wedge of pumpkin left in the fridge after using some for baking. Pumpkin is sweet on its own and gets even sweeter after it is steamed so by using pumpkin in this dish, it really flavours the meatballs with another layer of richness. […]

Healthy Vegetable Korma Recipe (suitable for vegetarians)

Korma is a South Asian dish that is made by braising meat and/or vegetables with yogurt/cream, water/stock and spices. I made a healthy version of vegetable korma by using plain non-fat yogurt (with no added sugar) and also mixed in some ground almonds to give it an extra boost of nutty flavour. The husband and […]

So Pho Bento Takeaway | Halal Vietnamese Food

After all that blogging I’ve done for my Hanoi travels, it’s inevitable that I’ll have strong cravings for Vietnamese food. Since I was too lazy to go home and cook, I thought I would just grab takeaways from So Pho at Novena Square as that was the only Vietnamese restaurant that came to my mind, […]

Two weeks ago, I accompanied W to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and I came across this pretty-looking Green Tea Puff (S$2.90 each) while buying snacks at Polar Puffs & Cakes. Had to buy two home to try. ๐Ÿ™‚ When I cut into the puff, I was really delighted to see how thin the choux pastry […]

Stir Fried Char Siew Don Recipe

The char siew pork used for this recipe is super easy to make as it doesn’t involve any roasting of meat. Simply marinate thinly sliced pork (those pre-packed for shabu shabu will be ideal) and stir fry them in the pan which will only take a few minutes to cook. Of course, you can use […]

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, […]

Egg Foo Young Recipe ่Š™่“‰่›‹

Egg Foo Young is a Chinese omelette with various ingredients in it which include vegetables, meat and/or seafood. It’s very versatile like a fried rice – you can basically add whatever you like into the egg. Many Western countries often serve Egg Foo Young with a sauce or gravy like this version. I used a […]

If you live near or have been to Greenwood Avenue, you would agree that this quiet suburb in Bukit Timah is just like a Little Italy. It is home to several Italian restaurants and pizzerias that offer an authentic taste of the bel paese. I was recently invited to a food tasting at Fratini La […]

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 […]

Black Sesame Pumpkin Mochi Bread Recipe

In my previous Baked Pumpkin Mochi Balls Recipe, I had substituted oil with extra pumpkin puree just to keep the treats lower in fat and calories which obviously wasn’t a great idea. So this time round, I remade the recipe with the addition of sunflower oil which not only gave the mochi bread a better […]

However, do not mistake this for BAKE Cheese Tart at ION Orchard and Westgate which is the real deal from Hokkaido, Japan whereas Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart is by Malaysian cafe chain, Secret Recipe.
