Stuffed Red Dates with Glutinous Rice Cakes 心太软

The first time I got to know about the dessert snack “心太软” (literally means ‘heart too soft’) was from a local Channel 8 drama probably about 2-3 years back. It’s a pretty apt name for these Stuffed Red Dates which are basically steamed red dates stuffed with glutinous rice cake (or mochi). The middle is […]

Thai Glass Noodle Salad Recipe

Previously, I had shared a Glass Noodle Salad Recipe in which I had added chicken breast meat. When I came back from Bangkok, I thought of making the dish again in the same way that I had it while there. Less colours this time as this remake version of Glass Noodle Salad consisted of mainly […]

Garlic Chicken with Chinese Celery Recipe

Chinese celery is very aromatic and grassy, almost like an intensified flavour of regular celery hence I seldom ate it and never cooked with it previously because of that. However, my opinion of Chinese celery had kinda changed since eating the oyster cake from Teochew Meat Puff. I had probably acquired the taste for it […]

Oven-Baked Peanut Chicken Recipe

No, it’s not a plate of muah chee though it really looks like it, lol. I’ve made peanut chicken nuggets for movie snack this time. I always have coarsely ground roasted peanuts in my pantry as it’s an ingredient that I use pretty often when I make muah chee and glutinous rice dumplings. Sometimes, I’ll […]

Steamed Tofu Recipe (with prawns, oyster mushrooms & egg custard)

Steamed tofu? Standard. Steamed egg? Boring. How about steamed tofu with steamed egg and a whole lot more of flavour and crunch? And indeed, this was what I came up with, that truly represented my passion for ‘rojak’ (means ‘mixture’ in Malay) cooking, lol. I had so much ingredients, sauce & garnish on top that […]

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 […]

Cold Salmon Pasta Recipe with Greek Yogurt Dressing

It’s Mother’s Day today and I just want to wish all mummies in the world a very happy day! I can never have enough of creamy pasta. It’s a dish that I can make in bulk, chill in fridge and have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes, supper. Haha. You may think, ‘OMG, this […]

Coconut Chicken Soup Recipe

I’ve seen desserts made from coconut juice but it has never crossed my mind that the juice can also be used in chinese soups until the husband bought two young coconuts back from the supermarket and I thought I would experiment with one since I was going to cook lotus root soup the next day […]

Avocado Chicken Recipe

Normally I would eat avocados in salads or on their own, or make them into guacamole dips, sandwich spreads and even pasta sauces that wouldn’t require any cooking. Check out some of my no-cook avocado recipes: Creamy Avocado Penne Pasta with Crispy Salmon Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Tempeh, Tofu & Avocado Salad Honey Mustard Roast […]

Chicken Wanton Soup with Enoki Mushrooms Recipe

Happy new year, peeps! Finally I have my first post of the year up! 🙂 And I just want to share this chicken wanton recipe because I’ve just made tons of them, enough to host a wanton party at home, lol. I’ve been happily hosting guests over the festive season that it hasn’t quite struck […]

Mango Prawns Salad Recipe

I made this simple Mango Prawns Salad with inspiration from my other recipe, Cajun Spiced Salmon with Mango Salsa that was featured in Singapore’s Shape Magazine months ago. I loved the flavour of the Cajun spice mix that was further accentuated by the sweetness of the mango. The tartness & acidity from the lemon or lime juice just balanced […]

Pork Rib & Black Bean Soup Recipe

As we approach the end of the year, it just means it’s going to be a rainy December and I can’t help but crave for hot, soupy & comforting meals like chinese soups or steamboats that will really warm me up from inside out. So yes, that’s why I’m making a chinese black bean soup […]

Sardines in Tomato Sauce with Onions Recipe

Inspired by what Gran used to do with a can of sardines when I was little. For convenience sake, it is all too easy to just heat up a can of sardines and eat it as it is but with just a little bit more work to dress it up with more fresh ingredients, canned […]

Frozen Banana Ice Cream with Blueberries Recipe

Every weekend I’d always buy a big bunch of bananas from the supermarket as bananas are the best superfood to eat prior to my morning gym sessions for the much needed fuel. However I’d always end up with 2-3 pieces remaining which would eventually turn black and then get thrown away. Quite some time ago, […]

Oven Baked Falafel Recipe

I’d been thinking of making falafels at home for quite some time but I found it a hassle to deep fry them (well, besides being heaty) when I only needed a quick (hopefully healthy) bite as a snack. So yes, oven baking was the only way out. I added panko to the chickpeas to bulk them up […]

Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe

Mashed potato is such a classic dish that I’m sure most of us have eaten a lot of it since we were little. While I like those with creamy textures that almost melt in the mouth, the coarsely mashed ones are equally tasty especially if you don’t mind eating potato skins. I like to keep […]
