Tuna Steak with Beans & Pasta Salad Recipe

The husband prefers a higher protein diet these days because of his regular body-building and weight-lifting workouts. When we found really affordable tuna steaks from Fassler Gourmet the last time we were there, he’s totally into tuna now because it’s meaty in terms of texture and it’s a great source of lean protein with very little […]

Nonya-Style Steamed Grouper Recipe

Fresh cod fish has always been our favourite choice of fish but it’s just getting too expensive these days as price has gone up to almost $60 per kg at NTUC Fairprice. This time round, I decided to go for grouper fillets (fresh ones, I’m never a big fan of those pre-packed frozen types) instead as […]

Home-made pizza sauce and tortilla pizza recipes

I have always preferred thin-crusted pizzas (like Spizza’s) to classic hand-tossed thicker ones as the crunch of the crispy crust gives the pizza an inviting texture without filling me up so I can enjoy more varieties of different flavours. At home, the husband and I eat tortilla wraps regularly so they will always be in […]

Honey BBQ Baby Back Ribs Recipe

With my under-6-bucks slab of baby back ribs from Foodie Market Place, I tried to recreate the same Grilled Baby Back Ribs from Chili’s Grill & Bar that my dining companions and I totally digged the last time we were there. I made use of my mum’s very simple recipe with only two ingredients – […]

Fresh Corn Soup with Crispy Tempeh Recipe

I tend to come up with weird recipes these days. Crispy tempeh with corn soup? Really? Besides sandwiches, salads and porridges, I often find it a challenge to whip up an easy lunch for just myself while taking into consideration the fat and calorie content. Soups are probably my next best bet. I would have […]

Crab Meat, Asparagus & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

I came across a stir fry recipe in a low-GI cookbook recently and thought I’d reinvent it into something heartier. This is a speedy stir fry or Asian style salad as I would call it that’s really healthy and light on the stomach and low in fats & calories too. I’ve packed in asparagus and mushrooms […]

Meatballs Spaghetti Recipe

With just one block of pecorino romano that I bought from Foodie Market Place, I probably converted my kitchen to an Italian one for a week, lol. Antipasti, pizzas & pastas – whatever I could whip up so I could make use of this very fine cheese. The husband was in heaven as all these […]

Steamed Chicken with Ginger, Garlic & Onion Sauce Recipe

There is something about steamed chicken that is so wickedly delicious because the meat is tender, juicy and succulent and we can really taste its natural sweetness too. In fact, plain steamed chicken is already good on its own without the need for any extra sauce. However for variety and a change of palates, I […]

Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

After I had tried making stuffed portobello mushrooms earlier this week, I’m now attempting to make stuffed bell peppers. Lunches are really getting interesting for me these days. It is just amazing how many vegetables out there we can make use of to create happy comfort food out of them. One walk down the vegetables […]

Crispy Salmon Fillet on Mashed Peas Recipe

I don’t like peas but I love mashed peas. It just reminds me of a friend who dislikes potatoes but loves french fries, lol. Well I don’t exactly hate peas as I can still eat them but I’d rather not if I have a choice. I’m not sure how on earth I’d have bought a […]

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms Recipe

I’m happy to have experimented with many new dishes with all the stuffs I had bought from Foodie Market Place especially the big packet of cheddar cheese and block of pecorino romano that I never seem to be able to finish using them, lol. I quite like using pecorino cheese as a topping for these […]

Pan-Seared Scallops & Crispy Bacon Salad Recipe

I can never resist Hokkaido scallops that are always plump, succulent and sweet. Though they are a bit pricey for home cooking, I really don’t mind treating ourselves every now and then. And I think the best way to cook them is to pan-sear them quickly on a hot pan so the insides remain tender […]

Steamed Chicken Cabbage Rolls Recipe

I think home cooking can sometimes be a form of art too in a sense that we can try recreating dishes from leftover ingredients without them looking like leftover food. And I kinda enjoy cracking my brain to churn up something really easy to make with whatever I have in the fridge as I don’t like […]

Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce (蒜泥白肉) Recipe

Whenever I dine at Lao Beijing, I will definitely order their Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce 蒜泥白肉 which comprises of thinly sliced tender pork (like those used in shabu shabu) with a good balance of lean and fat so they have that chew and crunch at the same time. The pungent odour of raw minced garlic is […]

Salmon & Halibut Fish Cakes Recipe

This is a slightly simplified variation of my Salmon & Sutchi Fish Cakes Recipe. I had bought some frozen premium halibut fillets from Fairprice earlier and thought of combining them with the salmon I already had to make fish cakes. Though I didn’t use any egg as a binding agent here, the ingredients were still able to […]

Minced Pork with Egg Tofu Recipe

The husband loves eggs as well as anything with eggs so naturally he’d adore egg tofu too. In order to make this an even more eggy-tasting dish, I included a beaten egg into the minced meat mixture for a slightly gooey texture which really complemented the ‘drier’ egg tofu and the rice congee that I cooked. […]
