Braised Chicken and Macaroni in Tomato Sauce

This is a quick-fix pasta meal that is perfect for a weekday dinner. It mainly uses ingredients and seasonings that you probably already have in your fridge and/or pantry. I served the braised chicken with macaroni but you can use any pasta of your choice or with crusty bread if you like. Braised Chicken and […]

Crab Fried Rice Recipe

I got the idea of using crabmeat in fried rice after my mum commented that she made a crab fried rice the other day which was delicious. And so I went to the supermarket and bought a pack of cooked crabmeat (from the chilled fresh fish section). Though there weren’t much ingredients in this fried […]

Honey Lemon Pepper & Pork Stir Fry Recipe

A few days ago, I posted a Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe. Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy Chinese stir fry recipe in which I’ve also incorporated honey and lemon. This dish tastes sweet and tangy with a little heat from fresh red chillies. You can substitute the pork with either chicken or fish because […]

Creamy Garlic Chicken Pasta with Evaporated Milk

I was (and still am) so in love with this pasta dish after experimenting with a garlic and evaporated milk sauce that I had to cook it three days in a row, lol. But the husband and I didn’t get sickly of it! Though I might have called this pasta dish ‘creamy’, it wasn’t really […]

Smoked Salmon Rice Paper Rolls with Hoisin Peanut Dipping Sauce

Found a brand new pack of rice paper wrappers in my pantry so decided to make Vietnamese spring rolls. I remembered how much I enjoyed the Summer Rolls from Pho Street which also came with this savoury dipping sauce. I tried to recreate the piquant sauce with hoisin sauce, peanut butter and ground peanuts and […]

Cashew Chicken Recipe

I think the beauty of Chinese stir-fries lies in its versatility and quick preparation time. We can almost create any stir-fry dish with whatever meat and/or vegetables we have in the fridge so long we have oyster and light soy sauces – which I’d say are the most useful, must-have sauces for every kitchen. Stir-fries […]

Sambal Okra Recipe

Sambal okra is one of the very few okra dishes that I like because the okra doesn’t taste slimy in this dish which I think is the main reason why many people don’t like this vegetable. I realised on a previous occasion when I was making a salad with okra (see Okra Salad Recipe) that […]

Seafood Brown Rice Risotto Recipe

To make this recipe, you would need a flavoursome seafood stock. Luckily I had kept prawn heads/shells and fish heads/bones (can also get from NTUC Fairprice) in the freezer so what I did was to fry these odds and ends with some sunflower oil till cooked and fragrant and then added leftover vegetable broth. I […]

Fruity Couscous Recipe

I really love a fruity couscous because it’s packed with so much vitamins and fibre (really a good way to eat more fruits!) and it’s just so quick and easy to make. The myriad of colours, textures and flavours just makes eating couscous so much more exciting. I must say, this isn’t so much of […]

Red Bean Porridge Recipe

至亲爱的奶奶与外婆,祝你们母亲节快乐。 虽然你们已离开两个多月了,我还是好想念你们。 I remembered the day when a distant relative visited my grandmother at hospital with her homemade red bean porridge. Grandma had no appetite then but managed to eat a few mouthfuls and said it was good because the red beans made the porridge somewhat sweet and fragrant. So I thought of making red […]

Kung Pao Tofu Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao Chicken. Kung Pao Pork. Kung Pao Prawns. I just love ’em all. I think the kung pao sauce is simply one of the best in Chinese cuisine, imo. It’s spicy, sweet, savoury and nutty – sure to reignite the tastebuds and leave us wanting more. I decided to try something new this time. […]

Shrimp Fried Quinoa Recipe

Shrimp Fried Rice Quinoa looks just like a regular fried rice. I just love quinoa’s versatility as we can serve it as a side or easily turn it into a one-dish main like this. I had previously made a similar fried quinoa – see Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe (with salmon) so you see how easy […]

Fan Choy Recipe

Fan Choy (饭菜 in Cantonese) is what I call the ‘dim sum version’ of the char siew rice which is affordably priced (small portion though) and readily available at those stalls selling dim sum and steamed buns at hawker centres or coffeeshops. For my recipe, I chose to use brown rice (it’s healthier than white!) […]

Chicken In A Pot Recipe

My dearest Mr Guinea Pig has been frequently away from home on business. Sometimes I just feel too lazy to cook for myself. It’s not difficult to grab a takeaway as there are many food choices out there in the hawker centre and coffeeshops in my neighbourhood. But yet, I still don’t know what to eat […]

Spicy Prawn and Avocado Sandwich Recipe

I made a Low Fat Portobello Mushroom Soup for lunch and thought I should also make some open sandwiches with that freshly baked rye loaf that I bought. This Spicy Prawn and Avocado Sandwich is really easy to assemble with minimal cooking required. I chose to quickly blanch the prawns in boiling water just to […]

Low Carb Tagliatelle al Ragu (using baiye tofu)

The subject heading is not wrong. This is indeed a low carb pasta recipe as I’ve substituted tagliatelle with baiye tofu instead. Baiye tofu typically comes in a compressed block of beancurd skin so we just need to slice it up in 1cm thickness and then use our hands to loosen it up into individual […]
