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 →

One of the things I love doing in the kitchen is experiment and have tons of fun. Being somewhat a typical resourceful (a nicer term for stingy) Asian, I’m always making use of whatever gadgets, equipments or kitchen ware I have instead of buying additional stuff that I might only use once or twice. Friends could not believe that I have been baking with mama’s 30-year-old portable oven (have konked out recently) and mixer. If any of you dare not start cooking because you don’t have a proper kitchen, the good news is you don’t need them to start. Anyone that can cook with the bare essentials. Continue Reading →

Homemade Passion Fruit Vinegar

Drinking vinegar isn’t something new. History buffs are probably aware of posca which was drunk in Ancient Greece and Rome. In Japan, Korea and Taiwan, it was used not only in cuisine but also for medical purposes for centuries until now. In feudal times, Japanese samurai warriors carried vinegar mixed with water into battle as a tonic to fight fatigue. There are also a variety of benefits claimed from stimulating appetite to beautiful skin.

Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad)

Grandpa loves to give away his papayas (pardon the pun) everything I visit. and I’ve made many visit since last year, hence papaya overload. He has 3 papaya trees in his backyard which he is extremely proud of. I do not understand why he loves planting just papaya and sugar apple trees in his huge backyard, I love other fruits too like mango, rambutan and passion fruits. Maybe I’ll sneak in a mango tree next time I’m back.

Last weekend, I took back an unripe (green) papaya to make Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad). Continue Reading →

Passion Fruit Jam

Passion Fruit JamI’m a big “fruit-head”. I go crazy when I see gorgeous fruits at the market, even when I’m travelling. So many varieties, so many choices, they all look so gorgeous, all so tempting. I always end up buying too much and there’s not enough space in my fridge.. sigh. Sometimes the fruits turn old and wrinkled before I’m able to finish them, so I turn the fruits into jam.

Blueberry Smoothie

This is a short post as I’m currently on long vacation in Europe. My plans to schedule a few posts didn’t worked out, so I thought it’s better I update with a quick post.

Apple & stone fruits are now in season in Europe and even though it’s the end of the season for the berries, it’s still very cheap for us Malaysians. So I’m happily snacking, making smoothies & desserts with the fruits.. happy bunny. Luckily I’m staying with friends that let me use their kitchen and raid their fridge :)  Continue Reading →

I just got back from a week-long retreat with yoga & raw food detox at Bahay Kalipay Retreat Center on beautiful Palawan Island, it has been a week of rejuvenating and slowing down besides the detox. I’m sure you will hear about someone detoxing or doing some cleanse very so often. Besides doing a one-off detox to remove toxins from your liver, kidney and gallbladder, a good detox is actually a gentle process that can take a few weeks by replacing the wrong food with nutrien-rich food to restore your organs like liver and gallbladder.  Continue Reading →
