Snow Fungus Soup Recipe 雪耳桂圆紅棗汤

I remembered having snow fungus soup at Grandma’s house just a few weeks before she passed away in February. My husband had tried it for the first time and I was surprised he actually had several helpings as he didn’t seem interested in Chinese dessert soups previously. I said I would make the same dessert […]

Korean Bibimbap Recipe 韩国拌饭

I realise I have been cooking a lot of Korean dishes at home recently. Probably because I’m back into watching Korean dramas and I always see the characters having home cooked meals of rice, soup, kimchi & the like for almost every meal. It is pretty common to eat bibimbap (‘mixed rice’) out of a […]

Sour Cream Pasta Recipe

Cooking with healthier alternatives like reduced fat or fat free yogurt or sour cream almost always result in a split sauce. I used to think that split sauces are cooking disasters until when I watched this food program that showcased good eats in Taiwan. In it, they introduced this Savoury Soy Milk that was served […]

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 […]

Corn & Pumpkin Pasta with Butter Seared Flounder

I would say this is a clean-eating recipe as I just want to keep all ingredients fresh and natural including the sauce for the pasta which is basically made of pumpkin puree. Pumpkin itself is quite sweet and I’ve always like adding pumpkin puree into porridge to give it flavour so I don’t have to […]

Seafood Pie Recipe

This is a pie with no pastry. 😉 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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Oyakodon Recipe (Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl)

Oyakodon is a Japanese dish in which chicken and egg are simmered together in a sauce and then served over rice. For my version, I used boneless chicken leg which I roasted in the oven to give it a crispy, golden brown crust and I served it with brown rice as a low-GI option. A […]
