Fried Rice with Crispy Salmon, Lotus Root & French Beans Recipe

I absolutely adored this fried rice not only because the salmon was crispy but because the salmon imparted a wonderful aroma to the rice without making it taste fishy. The crunch from the lotus root and french beans simply added more textures too. And I chose brown rice over white rice for its high fibre and low-GI properties. An easy […]

Braised Mushrooms & Chicken Noodles (Chic Chor Mee) Recipe

I ditched the minced pork from my Braised Mushrooms Minced Meat Noodles (Bak Chor Mee) Recipe and swapped with chicken breast meat to come up with my version of Chic Chor Mee. Similarly, I did not use any pork lard and since there is only a lean protein of chicken breast, this is definitely an even more healthier […]

Bak Kut Teh Recipe with Seah’s Spices

After my very successful attempt to make Salt-Roasted Chicken with Seah’s Spices prepacked spice mix, I was very eager to try out another one. The husband loves our Singapore’s local version of bak kut teh a lot because of its intense peppery flavour hence I decided to make this for dinner. Normally I’d prefer Malaysia’s version of BKT […]

Thai Chicken Salad Recipe

Recently I had been experimenting with Thai food again like pad thai, tom yum soup and this very appetising salad which I had it on its own as a light brunch. The aromatic and pungent smell of the ginger was balanced out by the sweet, salty, sour and spicy flavours of the other components in the […]

Salt-Roasted Chicken Recipe with Seah’s Spices

I was out grocery shopping with Godma earlier when she mentioned to me that she had made an excellent Emperor Herbs Chicken using prepacked spice mix from Seah’s Spices brand. She made it sound so good so I also bought a few varieties of spices to try at home. I started with making Salt-Roasted Chicken. This […]

Low Fat Portobello Mushroom Soup Recipe

I finally made my first mushroom soup! What took me so long?! Geez. I’m a big fan of mushroom soup especially those creamy ones but these are just too fattening to be consumed on a regular basis so my recipe is a low-calorie and low-fat one that is easy to make when you just need a […]

Pan Fried Sutchi Fish Recipe (with assorted vegetables)

Sutchi fish is one of my preferred white fish as it has a mild flavour and doesn’t have a fishy or muddy smell despite it being a freshwater fish. Besides being really affordable and cheap, the sutchi fish with a firm texture is very suitable for pan-frying, baking or even stir-frying. Here are a few […]

Pan-fried Chicken with Rockmelon Salad Recipe

Recently I had been trying to experiment with different combinations of fruits and vegetables to make a variety of healthy sides just so I wouldn’t have to repeat the usual. Inspired by my favourite parma ham and rockmelon pairing, I just wondered if the melon would go with a simple pan-fried chicken breast. Seemed really plain especially when […]

Hamburger Steak & Spaghetti Recipe

The husband asked if I would attempt to make hamburgers after stocking up on so much minced beef recently and that gave me an idea to reinvent my Meatballs with Gravy Recipe into a hamburger steak instead. For this recipe, I didn’t cook the patties in the oven as that might just dry them out so I […]

Pork with Chickpeas & Orange Recipe – Low-GI, Low Carb

I was at the library looking up some low-GI cook books and found this interesting Pork with Chickpeas & Orange Recipe which I thought of making for dinner. The original recipe uses canned chopped tomatoes and dried chilli but I substituted them with fresh tomatoes and chilli flakes. Also added extra ketchup and sweet chilli […]

KL Style Hokkien Mee Recipe

Recently, I tried KL Style Hokkien Mee at Geylang and thought I’d try to recreate a healthier version of it at home minus away the so-good-but-so-sinful pork lard. The KL version of Hokkien Mee is quite different from the local one we get here and the most obvious difference is in the colour. KL one is ‘black’ […]

Kimchi Stew Recipe

On days when I have a cold or sinus infection and my nose goes stuffy, I tend to crave for spicy things that can help unblock my nose and make me breathe better. Since I was down with flu last month, I couldn’t quite smell or taste my food properly for a period of time so […]

Chicken & Vegetables Medley Fried Rice Recipe

I had to go A&E on Tuesday when I had really bad nausea that made me vomit the whole day till I suffered from severe dehydration. Nearly passed out at the hospital so I had to be put on drip. Not an exciting week for me indeed. Been having flu symptoms for 1.5 months but never did […]

Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

My mum had once told me before that when she was still carrying me, she always had a craving for chicken pies besides nasi lemak (even in the wee hours of the night) though it wasn’t her favourite type of food. Seemed like I was born to eat chicken pies, lol. If my memory serves […]

Chicken Soba with Cashew Nut Sauce Recipe

If the husband and I are out having Japanese food, cold soba (buckwheat) noodle is one item we’d not miss out on. Even at home, I like to substitute other noodles with soba whenever possible as it’s really a healthier alternative that helps with weight management as it contains less calories than the standard spaghetti and […]
