Big Breakfast Oats (Gluten Free & Dairy Free)

This is my typical daily Big Breakfast Oats, except it looks like a pile of mess on most days (like my Banana Oatmeal recipe). This is my evolved breakfast oatmeal. I used to burnt my oatmeal.. quite often.. sigh.. I’ve received enough stern looks. I’m really bad at multitasking – cooking rolled oats on stove while brushing my teeth or picking my clothes. Without knowing it, something smelt burnt. My poor pot has seen better days. Continue Reading →

Vegetable Chips with Tahini Dip

I would crave for salty potato chips once every few moons and get a bag of all natural chips. After 1/3 through the bag in a sitting, I would get some weird reactions and just couldn’t stand the sight of it. It’s probably my body sending me signals. Talk about fast reaction. So what would a girl to do when she has the cravings again? Bake some sweet potato fries and chips. Sometimes I made them for breakfast too. Continue Reading →

Smoked Salmon Bites

When my good friend Reza once told me I should join Masterchef Malaysia, the expression I gave him said it all: “Are you out of your mind?”. Most Masterchef contestants are excellent cooks that have been cooking since they were kids. Me? I just enjoy playing with recipes in the kitchen. The expression when I received the invite to New Zealand Week Culinary Demo with New Zealand Masterchef winner Nadia Lim: Oh wow, I must not missed this demo!  Continue Reading →

Gado Gado (Indonesian Salad with Peanut Sauce)

Gado gado is one of the well known dishes from Indonesia. Although it looks like a salad dish, gado gado is also eaten as a one dish meal in Indonesia.

Crispy Salmon Ginger Soy SauceI have not posted many fish recipes even though fish is on my dinner plate almost 3 times a week. 80% of the time, the weeknight fish dish is easy 10 mins Teochew Style Steamed Fish or Hong Kong Style Steamed Fish recipe. If you are like me who prefer hassle-free cleaning aftermath, then steaming food is one of the best cooking method. Not only that, most Asians kitchen do not have an oven, and I too am bias towards using the stove than the oven. Continue Reading →

Baked Oatmeal Muffins

My digestion has acted up quite badly from early this year, causing me restless nights and fatigue relapse. My road to recovery from leaky gut is ongoing since 2 years, thus having the bloating symptoms reoccur can be frustrating. Having planned many great projects this year, I felt disappointed when things are not going well in that direction. When I get a bit better, I just pushed & overworked my body. Then the body breaks down again.  Continue Reading →

Baked Eggs in Pomodoro SauceI’d bookmarked this Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce recipe from Quay Po Cooks sometime ago. QPC had been so fortunate to watch Chef Fabio Viviani (Top Chef Season 5) demonstrate this simple and delicious recipe at his restaurant. I can imagine Chef Fabio’s suave personality charming all the female audience at the demo. Continue Reading →

Macanese Portugese Chicken (Coconut Saffron Chicken)

It’s incredible that many delicious food have been fused & created due to influences from another culture. Like Chinese Fortune Cookies (can’t find them in China) or Dutch Baby Pancakes (nope, the Dutch have not heard of them) or Japanese Cheesecake (made famous by the Japanese and became a craze in some Asian countries). Same goes to this Portuguese Chicken in Macau, I doubt this dish can be found in Portugal. Continue Reading →
