Stir Fried Pig Liver with Ginger and Onions Recipe

It is really unusual for me to prepare a dish with pig liver as I’m never fond of it since I was young. Just that I cooked bak chor mee (minced meat noodles) a few days ago and had half of a pig liver left and the husband didn’t want me to waste it so […]

Healthy Cauliflower and Carrot Soup Recipe

Sometimes when I feel I have overeaten rich foods and need a detox to make that tummy feel a little less queasy, a healthy vegetable soup is all I need. And such a recipe is so flexible that you can use any cruciferous vegetables that you like such as broccoli or cabbage. I combined cauliflower […]

Smoked Salmon with Potato Rosti Recipe

If you’ve been to Marché in Singapore, you’d probably have tried their popular rosti, served either plain or with smoked salmon or a sausage of your choice. I’m a big fan of potato rosti and I could never forget the best one I had in Switzerland that came in a frying pan with a really […]

Kailan with Silken Tofu Recipe

I eat a lot of tofu, not just because it’s nutritious but I like how versatile it is that you can braise, boil, steam or fry it. And since I’m trying to cut down on carbs and meat, tofu is my best source of protein that is low in calories yet filling enough for me. […]

Thai Style Pineapple Fried Rice Recipe

Whenever I visit a Thai restaurant, pineapple fried rice is one of the few carb dishes that I’d normally order to go with the other spicy, sweet and sour dishes. And most of the time, such pineapple rice often comes loaded with ingredients and flavours that you can just enjoy it on its own. When […]

Braised Miso Chicken with Sweet Potatoes Recipe

I am so happy with myself for hitting the gym again (after so many years). Since I started my exercise regimen 3 weeks ago, I managed to shed those extra kilos that I had put on during Chinese New Year period. While it is so easy to pile on the pounds, it is just hard […]

Easy Hummus Recipe

I was first exposed to Middle Eastern & Egyptian cuisine nine years ago when an ex-colleague brought me to Altazzag at Haji Lane where I had one of the best hummus served with freshly-baked pita bread. From then, I fell in love with the exotic flavours of the Near East. I’d been regularly making this […]

Steamed Chicken with Dried Lily Buds Recipe

Chicken and golden needles (dried lily buds) cooked in Chinese wine was one of Gran’s signature dishes. Even though I haven’t had it for like 20 years, I could still remember how tender the chicken was and how fragrant the gravy was, which I could just drizzle over my rice. I wasn’t a big fan […]

Stir Fried Seaweed Chicken Noodles Recipe

In one of my previous posts about factory outlet shopping at Woodlands Loop, I mentioned about this Japanese Crispy Chicken with Seaweed from CS Tay (read the blog post here) which is one of the few processed foods that I do buy and use in cooking. And this is a one dish meal that I […]

Salmon Belly Miso Soup Recipe

Earlier when I went to Fassler (the salmon factory at Woodlands Loop), I bought two big packs (2 kg worth) of salmon belly and so happened that I came across a Salmon Belly Miso Soup Recipe by food editor Tan Hsueh Yun in The Sunday Times, I decided to give the recipe a try. Salmon Belly […]

Korean Japchae (Mixed Vegetables) Recipe

Korean japchae is very similar to the Chinese chap chye where both literally mean ‘a mixture of different vegetables’. One thing that I really like about japchae is the use of dangmyeon (sweet potato noodles – you can get this from Korean supermarkets or NTUC Fairprice) which are thick and more chewy than the normal […]

Steamed Minced Chicken with Broccoli & Egg Tofu Recipe

I used to eat a lot of steamed egg (see my recipe here) whether it’s with porridge at home or when I get a takeaway from the mixed rice stall but it can get really boring over time as it’s always the same smooth and silky texture. This time I wanted to experiment a new […]

Hong Kong Style Steamed Cod Fish Recipe

I love Teochew style steamed fish (see my cod fish recipe here) because it was a dish that I grew up eating as my Granny who’s Teochew used to make it really often when I was little. Likewise, every time I visited my in-laws in Essex, England, my mum-in-law would cook the Cantonese style of steamed […]

Char Kway Teow Recipe (No Pork Lard)

Char kway teow (aka stir fried flat rice noodles) is one of our top national dishes in Singapore that so many of us love especially the crispy pork lard that really gives it depth and flavour as well as the juicy cockles. However as we are all getting health conscious these days, eating char kway […]

Salmon & Fischeon Fried Rice Recipe

I had reviewed DoDo’s new fish luncheon product a couple of days ago (click here to read) so this is the other recipe that I came up with by using up the remaining fischeon I had. This fried rice was definitely much better than the pasta in my opinion as the fischeon here played second […]

Seafood Aglio Olio Recipe

Besides creamy white sauce pasta, aglio olio (‘garlic & oil’) is another of my favourite. I love the garlic-infused olive oil that’s so fragrant yet I don’t find it greasy at all. Adding a little knob of butter will give that extra kick when you dig into this spaghetti. So easy to prep, so easy […]
