Fried Mee Tai Mak Recipe

Mee Tai Mak (米苔目) is one of my favourite varieties of Chinese rice noodles. It’s also known as Lao Shu Fen (老鼠粉) which sounds kinda cute, haha. I guess the name came about because of the shape of the noodle which is tapered like a mouse tail. Besides having mee tai mak in soup, it […]

Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe

I love the combination of honey and lemon. Sweet and sour – it’s just so appetising and refreshing on the palate. This is an easy roast chicken recipe that you can serve with any sides of your choice. As you can see from the picture below, the chicken looks ‘burnt’ on the exterior but it’s […]

Baked Ratatouille Recipe

Whenever I see the word ‘ratatouille’ (pronounced ‘ra-ta-too-ee’), I will be reminded of Pixar’s animated film of the same name. That, by the way, is quite an entertaining film as it depicts the story of a rat named Remy who dreams to become a chef. 🙂 A ratatouille is actually a French stewed vegetable dish […]

Skillet Chicken with Tomatoes Recipe

This dish was inspired by the chicken cacciatore I had at Pete’s Place which was simply chicken breast meat cooked in a tomato sauce. I added balsamic vinegar to the sauce so as to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes and also to give a nice depth on the whole with a mellow sweetness. […]

Thai Seafood Noodle Soup Recipe

Sawadee ka! Welcome to the Land of Smiles! 🙂 For some reason, I didn’t order my usual Tom Yum Soup during my last visit to Nakhon Kitchen so I thought I would make one at home (see my Seafood Tom Yum Soup Recipe) but turn it into a one-dish meal for dinner instead. And that […]

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 […]

Steamed Red Snapper Recipe

* This post is published in collaboration with Lee Kum Kee. This Sauce for Fried Cod Fillet from Lee Kum Kee is obviously for dousing over a piece of fried cod but since I never really like frying fish much (mostly because I don’t want to stink up the house as I have an open-concept […]

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 […]

Tomato Sambal Conchiglie Recipe

I initially planned to cook a vegetable curry so I bought egg plant and long beans but in the end, I came up with this pasta dish instead which was a marriage of Italian and Asian flavours – a cross between a bolognese pasta and a mee goreng probably? Lol. Sounds like a weird combo? […]

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 […]
