Char Siew (Chinese BBQ Pork)

So most of us are pretty well acquainted with this Chinese BBQ Pork aka Char Siew (or Cha Siu) that gained international popularity. It would frequently make an appearance with dim sum, but is also often paired with rice or noodles. Every country seems to have a slightly different version of it, but the main…

Mentaiko Salmon (No blowtorch)

Japanese food in Singapore is so popular that we’ve almost created a secondary fusion culture of it. Mentaiko mayo torched on large pieces of salmon paired with protein bowls is probably one of these instances! In Japan, mentai mayo (明太マヨ) is largely used with sashimi, sushi, dons, or especially pasta! However, you’d rarely see it…

Brown “Nasi” Lemak

The word “lemak” in Nasi Lemak means fat / creamy; both of which are probably what one would avoid when preparing for a wedding. Having grown up in Southeast Asia, I absolutely love all things coconut, and the creamy coconut-ty rice in Nasi Lemak is probably my favourite type of rice (next to chicken rice)….

Rendang Kambing

If I truly am what I eat, I’d probably be 30% chicken, 30% beef, 30% pork and 10% lamb. Lamb is in fact one of my favourite meats, but unfortunately isn’t as widely available as I’d like it to be. Whenever an opportunity presented itself, I would most certainly jump at it to indulge in…

Peanut Butter & Bacon French Toast with Caramelized Bananas

There are 2 kinds of people in this world: Those who love mixing sweet and savory, and those who think it’s absolutely blasphemous to do so. I certainly belong to the former. Chocolate and cheese, pulled-pork and maple syrup, honey and chilli, bacon and waffles… you name it!   Today, we’re making Peanut Butter and…

Toblerone Fudge Brownies with Crinkly Crust

“Brownies are the easiest to make.” That’s what they say… and I do agree to an extent. These bad boys usually don’t need any creaming or whipping. Just mix it all up in a bowl and bake it in the oven! Poof! You’re done… also on the condition that you didn’t try to change the recipe. Now,…

S’mores Waffles

Sometimes the pain in making your own food is deciding on what to eat. So like many others, I looked through my kitchen pantry. Lo and behold, there was an unopened packet of marshmallow. S’mores it was! Making waffles after all, is plain amazing. You already have most of the items you need at home…

Coconut Waffles with Mango Syrup

It is quite astounding that I have never  owned a waffle maker until now, given that I have always been obsessed over waffles since I was a child. My fascination with waffles was probably inherited from my dead, another waffle fanatic. But who can resist a plate of fresh waffles drizzled with maple syrup on a…

Mushroom And Chicken Risotto

I was never a big fan of reality TV shows as I found them to be overly dramatic and I was constantly annoyed with their dialogues. Even as food lover, I was reluctant to watch Masterchef. When I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, I realized how addicting it was. The more I watched it, the hungrier…

Oreo Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Oreo cookies have always been a family favourite since I was a kid. You know what’s awesome about them? They’re pretty much bite-sized “Cookies ‘n Cream” biscuits! Also, identifying the Oreo thief in the family is invariably simple. Look out for black crumbs on the corner of their lips.. or stained black teeth! 😉 It’s such a…

Chocolate Lava Cake

I’m going out on a limb here when I say that the Chocolate Lava Cake is a de rigueur inclusion in many high-end French / American restaurants and cafes. So… if you missed out on baking your Significant Other (S.O.) something romantic for Valentine’s Day, fret not! The upcoming March 14th is White Day (ホワイトデ)!…

Sinful Chocolate Cake

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s candy season! And when you say candy…. I think… chocolate bars! And that.. is what Halloween is awesome for. “Not a big fan of chocolate.” Have you ever heard anyone say that? I’ll probably roll my eyes and shudder when I hear something so preposterous. I still consider the statement to…

Ensaymada – Sweet Filippino Buns

When I was asked to do a Guest Post for “Go Bake Yourself“, I was extremely excited by the opportunity! The author, Choc Chip Uru is a young teen who grew up in Aussie land. She’s definitely one of the most inspiring teens I have ever met to date! I must say, don’t judge a…

Lemon Barley Drink

If you’ve been following my blog, you would notice that I do not have a single recipe for beverage. Why? There is simply nothing that would deter my appetite when it comes to eating. However, I must say I’m not a big drinker. Here are the drinks that I tend to have on a regular…

Jalapeño Cheese Muffins

Okay guys, I’m sowwie! I know it’s been a while since I last blogged! I shall now hang my head down in shame for the next…… minute…….. Alright, minute over! Anyway, I find it hard to believe that we’re already living in the month of June! How did half the year go by without me…

Hot Dog Buns ASIAN STYLE!

  Whenever I hear the term “hot dog buns”, the $1 hot dog buns from Ikea / Costco automatically come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, I love the old-school hot dog buns that many consider as comfort junk food. I’ve even heard that the ones in New York are probably the best! … oh…

Back to Durian City – Durian Chiffon Cake

Me relocating back to Singapore… is a big deal. After living abroad for so long, I don’t think I even recognize my red dot anymore. I’m still getting used to the new subway (MRT) lines developed. Apparently I have to pay full attention while transiting. Being too engrossed with my smartphone will somehow cause me…

Spanakopita

For the first time in 7 years, I managed to escape the cold of winter. For the first time in 7 years, I won’t be worrying about my plans for Christmas. For the first time in 7 years, I’ll actually be seeing my family during the holiday season. And yet, I can’t help but feel…
