Chicken & Mushroom Meatball Recipe

My mum recently gave me a huge packet of dried shiitake mushrooms which I had enjoyed cooking with as they were so plump and juicy. I steamed a fish with them in Teochew-style, stir-fried them with vegetables and even braised them to make minced meat noodles. Definitely tasted so much better than the usual chinese mushrooms […]

Crispy Fried Sutchi Fish Recipe

There’s nothing better than panko breadcrumbs when it comes to frying food as they give that excellent crisp and crunch without it tasting like a heavy crust batter. Check out my other recipes which make good use of panko: Chicken Katsudon Tonkatsu Crispy Onion Rings Shark Fillet with Lemon Mustard Halibut with Pecorino Romano Panko […]

Char Siew Chicken Recipe

I bought a bottle of Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce from the supermarket without knowing what to use it for until the husband mentioned to me that his mum used Hoisin Sauce to make char siew marinate so that gave me an idea. And since the husband usually preferred chicken to pork for its lean proteins, I […]

Stir Fried Bean Sprouts with Crispy Silver Fish Recipe

I’m feeling a little frustrated recently because I’ve been down with a bad flu for more than a month now. Seen the doctor twice and completed two courses of antibiotics and flu medication and I still didn’t recover from my persistent cough loaded with never-seem-to-go-away mucus and phlegm that was enough to leave me breathless […]

Avocado Pasta with Crispy Salmon Recipe

I love no-cook pasta sauces because they are just so easy to make. All I need is just my handy food processor to blend everything together. Avocado is a perfect ingredient to make such a pasta sauce because of its slightly eggy flavour, rich and creamy texture that really gives dimensions to any pasta type. […]

Making a Rich and Creamy Cheese Sauce for a Cheesesteak Sandwich Recipe

A rich and creamy cheese sauce cascading down a mountain of tender, juicy sliced beef is such a tantalising sight and that’s exactly what makes a cheesesteak sandwich look so scrumptiously mouth-watering. It’s also not difficult to make it. I have a big bag of cheddar cheese in the freezer waiting to be used up so when the […]

Crispy Onion Rings Recipe (using panko breadcrumbs)

I had some leftover panko breadcrumbs from the tonkatsu I made earlier which I thought would be a waste if I threw them away so I decided to make some onion rings with them. I don’t normally use panko for onion rings (click here for my usual onion rings recipe) but there’s always a first […]

Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet) Recipe

The husband is a die-hard fan of my Chicken Katsudon as he feels the panko breadcrumbs really give the meat an incredible crunch when fried. I don’t really prepare fried food that often at home but when I do, I let him indulge to his heart’s content, lol. So when I saw some really nice slabs of pork […]

Using Pearl Barley as a Thickener in this Beef & Carrot Stew Recipe

When that terrible haze struck Singapore last year, I had been constantly stocking up my pantry with green beans, barley and chrysanthemum that are known for their ‘cooling’ properties as the older folks always reminded us to consume them so we could achieve a yin-yang balance in the body and minimise our chances of falling ill especially […]

Creamy Carrot & Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

I just love how easy it is to make this healthy and nutritious soup without using too much seasonings as the carrot and sweet potatoes are already naturally sweet. I chose to steam them instead of boiling them so most if not all nutrients and goodness can be kept behind. And to give it a little […]

Using Avocado as a Salad Dressing and an Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Recipe

Have you ever eaten mashed avocados but thought they tasted like boiled eggs? Probably that’s why I love avocados a lot, lol. I often substitute mayonnaise or other store-bought sauces with avocados to make this creamy, buttery yet heart-healthy dressing for most of my salads. This is pretty much a high protein & low carb type of salad […]

Seafood (Octopus & Swordfish) Ceviche Recipe

Ceviche (say seh-bee-tcheh) is a dish typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices like lemon or lime. And because the fish is not cooked with any heat, it is recommended to use only good quality sashimi-standard types of fish when you’re preparing this. I had leftovers of swordfish and octopus which I […]

Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots Recipe

I used to dislike rosemary when I was in my teens because there was one time when I had a roast lamb leg dinner for Christmas (can’t remember from where), the gamey smell of the meat was nauseating and the overly intense flavour of the rosemary (probably used in excess to cover up that gamey […]

Grilled Chicken Banh Mi Recipe

I’m a big fan of banh mi which is a Vietnamese-style sandwich with ingredients encased in a light and airy baguette and I think NamNam Noodle Bar in Singapore serves up some really decent ones that are not only tasty but very wallet friendly too. A typical banh mi is filled with either grilled pork or […]

Chicken Liver Pate Recipe

I just wonder why pate in some restaurants can be so overpriced. I bought one packet of fresh chicken livers from NTUC Fairprice at under $2 and I could make an entire ramekin of pate that lasted me and my husband over a few days. We spread it over toast in the mornings and even used it […]

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 […]
