Chinese New Year Recipe: Oven Baked Crab Stick Crackers

Earlier I had shared my Sweet & Spicy Crab Stick Salad Recipe. And this was what I had done with the main bulk of the crab sticks I bought. The version that I sampled from outside was actually deep fried in oil and they felt really greasy to the touch so I tried making mine a […]

Sweet & Spicy Crab Stick Salad Recipe

I don’t normally fancy those packet imitation crab sticks that much because they are just like artificially-flavoured & artificially-coloured fish cakes. However, when I came across this crispy crab stick crackers at a temporary makeshift snacks stall in my neighbourhood, I thought it would be fun to try making the same at home. And yes, so I […]

Minced Chicken Omelette Recipe

I was making some chicken dumplings earlier and had a small amount of minced chicken left so I decided to do an impromptu omelette dish. I don’t really consider this as a recipe per se since it doesn’t involve any complicated prep or require any special seasoning but I just thought I’d share how I ‘decorated’ […]

Tomato Egg Recipe

One of the husband’s favourite dishes from our usual mixed rice stall is a Tomato Egg dish that is sweet, tangy and saucy which really gives a lot of punch and flavour when doused over white rice. The only gripe I had with that was that it contained MSG and was quite oily so I tried recreating […]

Stir Fried Beef and Broccoli Recipe

I don’t really cook a lot of beef at home. I’ve never even tried grilling beef steak for dinner to date (though the husband has been asking for it for a long time) so it gives us a good excuse to go to a steakhouse for a good steak whenever we crave for it, lol. When […]

Soy Sauce Fried Batang Fish Recipe

Fish are really getting more and more expensive these days. Whenever I go marketing, it just pains me to buy that tiny slab of fresh cod (1 person’s portion or the most 2) at $10 a piece. The husband always comments that my cooking is more expensive than eating out, lol which I don’t deny […]

Seafood Marinara Spaghetti Recipe

I never really fancy bottled pasta sauces that much because they are often flat in texture (I like my sauce with bits and chunks) and contain way too much sodium. For my Seafood Marinara Spaghetti Recipe, I use diced tomatoes with no salt to create the sauce base and then just season it with enough salt […]

Mango Prawns Salad Recipe

I made this simple Mango Prawns Salad with inspiration from my other recipe, Cajun Spiced Salmon with Mango Salsa that was featured in Singapore’s Shape Magazine months ago. I loved the flavour of the Cajun spice mix that was further accentuated by the sweetness of the mango. The tartness & acidity from the lemon or lime juice just balanced […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Squares Recipe

The husband and I decided to stay home today to clear some work before our staycation & food hopping trip next week. And I felt inspired to bake something so we could have something to munch on for tea. With a bunch of bananas and a pack of chocolate chips left in my pantry, I was able […]

Pork Rib & Black Bean Soup Recipe

As we approach the end of the year, it just means it’s going to be a rainy December and I can’t help but crave for hot, soupy & comforting meals like chinese soups or steamboats that will really warm me up from inside out. So yes, that’s why I’m making a chinese black bean soup […]

Pad Thai Recipe

Besides pineapple fried rice, pad thai is my next favourite carb dish that I really enjoy eating especially the one from Thai Express that has a great balance of all the necessary flavours of Thailand – sour, sweet and savoury. My mouth is salivating now at the thought of it, lol. I experimented with the […]

Sardines in Tomato Sauce with Onions Recipe

Inspired by what Gran used to do with a can of sardines when I was little. For convenience sake, it is all too easy to just heat up a can of sardines and eat it as it is but with just a little bit more work to dress it up with more fresh ingredients, canned […]

Frozen Banana Ice Cream with Blueberries Recipe

Every weekend I’d always buy a big bunch of bananas from the supermarket as bananas are the best superfood to eat prior to my morning gym sessions for the much needed fuel. However I’d always end up with 2-3 pieces remaining which would eventually turn black and then get thrown away. Quite some time ago, […]

Oven Baked Falafel Recipe

I’d been thinking of making falafels at home for quite some time but I found it a hassle to deep fry them (well, besides being heaty) when I only needed a quick (hopefully healthy) bite as a snack. So yes, oven baking was the only way out. I added panko to the chickpeas to bulk them up […]

Stir Fried Beef with Spring Onions & Ginger Recipe

Using spring onions in a wok stir fry is an excellent way to impart this extra fragrance, sweetness and delicate flavour to any meat or seafood, be it fish slices, chicken, beef or even frog legs. And with the use of ginger slices, any possible fishy or gamey smell is just reduced to none. My […]

Pork Belly & Potato Stew Recipe

This Pork Belly & Potato Stew Recipe was inspired by this homely stewed chicken side dish I had at Ootoya Japanese Restaurant. Hence I used mirin (Japanese rice wine) to give the broth a robust flavour and sweetness while adding this Japanese element into it. Instead of using chicken dark meat (leg or thigh), I opted for pork belly slices […]
