My recipe in Shape Magazine July 2014 issue

Woohoo! I’m thrilled that Shape Magazine had featured my Cajun Spiced Salmon recipe (page 95) in their latest 10th Anniversary issue. Alternatively, check out my original recipe post here. Research shows that consuming salmon at least twice a week will lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, prevent depression (benefits the brain!) and delay brain ageing. Truly […]

Black Bean Sauce Chicken & Peppers Recipe

Found this easy stir-fry recipe which makes a good one-dish meal for dinner. Minimal work but very robust flavours. As dried black beans are generally salty, there isn’t a need to season the dish with more salt so just go easy with the light soy sauce in the chicken marinate. Chicken & Peppers with Black Bean […]

Chicken Stroganoff & Garlic Butter Rice Recipe

I’m a big fan of MasterChef Australia and I never failed to watch the various seasons when they were aired on the Lifetime channel. All the dishes that were whipped up by the contestants in the show often inspired me to create something similar at home but with my own personal twist so it’s not just […]

My Husband’s ‘Extremely Cheesy’ Lasagne Recipe

My husband rarely cooks (ever since whipping up a wedding proposal meal 4 years ago but I fell asleep due to jet lag, oops!) but when he does, he cooks with his heart and soul and he delivers comfort food. It’s quite fun seeing him getting busy in the kitchen with an apron on because he’s so […]

Healthy Chickpea & Tofu Sandwich

It was my designated ‘vegetarian day’ and I was supposed to make a vegetarian sandwich for lunch but I was naughty and I cheated with a slice of shaved ham because it was available in the fridge, lol. But come to think of it, even without the ham, the sandwich would have tasted good too […]

Chicken with Mushrooms and Cabbage Recipe

With leftover mushrooms, cabbage and yogurt in the fridge, I managed to churn out a new chicken recipe for lunch which really gave me the much needed protein after my gym workout. Tender mushrooms, crunchy cabbage and yogurty sauce that were sweet, sour and savoury that really lifted the plain and flat chicken breast meat. Enjoy this […]

Chap Chye (Mixed Vegetables Stew) Recipe

I’m sure almost every family has their own chap chye recipe because it’s one dish that is never fixed in terms of ingredients used. If I recalled correctly, Gran’s Nonya Chap Chye included cabbage but did not have firm bean curd. And Mum’s version tasted very earthy from the huge amount of mushrooms used. Anyway, I had never been a […]

Panko-Crusted Halibut with Pecorino Romano Recipe

I bought a block of Pecorino Romano cheese from Foodie Market Place @ Tiong Bahru and had been grating it over my pastas and casseroles. Pecorino Romano is a hard Italian cheese made from sheep’s milk and tastes more salty and sharper than Parmesan but I do like it for its more intense aroma that […]

Chicken Stew with Peas, Edamame & Carrots Recipe

This is one recipe that I just came up with at lunch with whatever I had in the fridge and pantry that I could make use of. I love my vegetables so I chose to have more of that than meat in this stew. Of course, if you prefer more meat instead, you can just adjust […]

Salmon Belly in Black Pepper Sauce Recipe

I just love how black pepper sauce can be as versatile as mushroom sauce and that’s why both sauces are so frequently used in Western, Chinese and even Japanese cuisine. Normally, I’d make this black pepper sauce to go with grilled chicken but I felt like having salmon today so I just gave it a […]

Egg & Ham Breakfast Muffin Recipe

This is a no-carb muffin recipe which is very easy to make without the hassle of preparing several components of the traditional fry-up. Only 3 ingredients are required but of course if you like, you can always include additional stuffs like button mushrooms, diced bell peppers, sweet corn kernels, bacon bits, etc to bulk them up. Egg & Ham […]

Watermelon Cake / Fruit Cake Recipe

When I asked the husband before his birthday if he’d like me to bake a cake for him, he requested for a healthy and low calorie cake that we both could eat without worries so our diet plans wouldn’t go haywire. But to be honest, I find that really hard to do so because it takes […]

Fried Kimchi Pork Noodles Recipe

Just like K-Pop has taken the world by storm, Korean cuisine has also knocked out my all-time favourite Japanese food and claimed top position now. It’s just funny that I no longer seem to enjoy sushi and sashimi as much as before but I can easily have a kimchi stew or bibimbap any time, even twice in a day. I must […]

Stir Fried Penne with Seaweed Chicken Recipe

I was snooping inside the freezer and found some balance seaweed chicken from last time so I decided to whip up an impromptu lunch of stir fried penne today so the husband and I could stop brainstorming on what to eat and where to have lunch. This meal could probably be our last home-made non-clean […]

Crispy Salmon Salad Recipe

Now that my freezer is well stocked up with more salmon after a trip to Fassler (the salmon factory at Woodlands Terrace), I’m trying to cook salmon in various ways possible and this recipe is just one of them. I made this Crispy Salmon Salad for my post-gym lunch as I didn’t want something too […]

Kung Pao Pork Recipe

Most of the time when we think of Kung Pao, we would associate it with boneless chicken cubes or crunchy shelled prawns that go so well with the deliciously sweet, salty and spicy sauce. I just thought of experimenting my Kung Pao Chicken recipe with pork tenderloin (because that’s what I have in the freezer […]
