Bento Box Idea #2: Nando’s PERi-PERi Chicken Bento

I recently started making bentos out of fun and curiosity to see where it might lead me to on my cooking journey and now bento-making is becoming like a hobby. Making bentos for lunch does have a number of advantages in my opinion. 1. Reduce food wastage from dinner the night before if you’re not […]

Vegetarian Pasta Recipe (with pine nuts)

I don’t normally do meatless pastas at home but thought I would try making a simple vegetarian meal of angel hair pasta with crispy snow peas and crunchy pine nuts after getting inspiration from a vegetarian cooking magazine. The main flavouring agent would be the grated fresh parmesan cheese that gave the dish some sharpness. […]

Take Each Day One Step at a Time and a Smoked Duck Fried Rice Recipe

I thought by preparing for the worst in my health situation, it would probably lessen the impact should any bad news come my way. I had really tried looking at the brighter side of things and wished that the big lump on my neck was probably just an infection of the thyroid gland and that […]

Kimchi Chicken Meatball Wrap Recipe

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of quirky cooking ideas popping into my head every now and then. Perhaps it’s because I’m exposed to so many different cuisines all the time that when I’m doing meal planning, I would tend to add a little bit of this and a little bit of that into my […]

Steamed Chicken Recipe (with Ginger)

Those who have tried my Rice Cooker Chicken Claypot Rice Recipe might find the taste of this dish somewhat familiar because that was where I extracted the idea of doing this steamed chicken by using a similar seasoning sauce – one that’s rich, salty, savoury and sweet with a touch of zing from fresh ginger […]

Pan Seared Scallops with Spinach Couscous Recipe

Whenever I come up with a fusion invention dish, I’d always think twice if I should be sharing the recipe because my combination of flavours can be quite odd sometimes. Perhaps because I have adventurous taste buds, so almost anything works for me but I think that’s just the fun part of experimental cooking cos’ […]

Steamed Cheeseburger Recipe

I’m crazy about homemade burgers recently. Maybe because I haven’t had fast food for a long time (more than a year?) when I used to eat at McDonald’s 1-2 times per week (my diet and lifestyle were so unhealthy then). Every now and then, I would still get that craving for junk food and in […]

Balsamic Honey Glazed Salmon Recipe

Oven baked salmon served with steamed vegetables is such a classic home-made dish because we know oil-rich salmon is good for us and such meals are just so easy and quick to prep. However it really can get boring over time so I like to play around with different sauces that I can glaze my […]

Brown Rice Crispy Treats Recipe

I skipped gym for a few days last week while recovering from a cold and had so many leftover bananas cos’ I would normally have them with oats for breakfast on gym days. Kept them in the fridge and almost forgot all about them until I was at Phoon Huat earlier where I bought this […]

Salmon Fish Cake Recipe

I don’t know about you guys but I love potato skin because it has so much goodness in it. Even when I have to mash potatoes, I will still keep the skin on and that’s exactly what I have done for this fish cake recipe too. For those who haven’t had a Western style fish […]

Roasted Cannellini Beans, Carrots and Potatoes Recipe

Baked potato. Mashed potato. Corn on the cob. French fries. Onion rings. Salad greens. Coleslaw. Pasta salad. Steamed vegetables. Mashed cauliflower. Blah blah blah. I’m running out of ideas to create sides for my mains. So when the husband asked me if cannellini beans could be roasted in the oven, I thought it was just […]

Chicken Tofu Burger Recipe with Kimchi

One of my recent food inventions was this Chicken Tofu Burger topped with crunchy, sweet & sour cabbage kimchi. Had been making a lot of burgers recently cos’ the husband and I got hooked onto this Korean drama (Jang Bo-ri is Here!) on Channel U hence we would eat our dinner in front of the […]

Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

This was a really quick brunch fix cos’ it was one of those make-ahead meals that I’d prepare the night before and all I would do the next day was just to toss the ingredients with the dressing. Nothing too fanciful as I just wanted to keep the flavours simple and I chose to use […]

Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

Oven baked. Greaseless. Fat free. No salt. That’s how I prefer my sweet potato chips to be so the only flavouring factor depends on the sweet potato’s own natural sweetness. I picked Vietnamese yellow sweet potatoes but you can of course use the orange/purple variety or a mix of both. If going plain isn’t your […]

Salmon with Spiced Yogurt Sauce Recipe

I had raved about Greek yogurt earlier which I really thought of it as one of the best yogurt inventions ever and of course, my best buddy when it comes to cooking too, lol. With the addition of just a bit of ground cumin and curry powder, it is so easy to churn out a […]

Cabbage and Pumpkin Rice Recipe

As we all know, rice is a staple in Chinese cuisine. While I don’t think rice tastes good on its own because it’s just plain and bland, it does pair beautifully with dishes that come with rich, savoury gravies or sauces. Also I like its versatility when it comes to cooking because there are endless […]
