Cookie cutter is my “effective tool” to encourage my son to eat more breads (especially wholemeal) during breakfast time.
Among all the shapes, “gingerbread man” is his top pick because he loves the story of “Gingerbread Man”.
This recipe is adapted and modified from Novum’s Kitchen Cooking for Kids cookbook. The sardine filling is both my hubby and son’s favourite. Usually I will cook...

“What is zucchini?” “How do I cook it?”
I have been asked myself these 2 questions since I started cooking western food. Coming from a typical Chinese family, I have never tried zucchini before. After going through my cookbooks and browsing all online recipes, I just realized that there are so many ways to cook zucchini ie baked, grilled, stir-fry and stew. Below is a recipe adapted and modified from...

This egg roll is not a pre-planned dish. The idea came to me when I was cooking lunch for both my son and myself on one Saturday afternoon when my hubby was away for his overseas trip. Basically, I just combined some ingredients from my cooked dishes and followed the method in this post. (If you can read chinese, refer to this site). Thus, I didn’t have the exact measurement. You may need to use your own...

My weekends are always tied up with the routine “once-a-week” groceries shopping. Last Sunday was even busier. After all the housework and cooking, we have to rush for an appointment. Due to time constraints, I just snapped some quick shots of my chicken rice directly from the claypot. Later on, I only realized that my cooked rice had been fully covered by the ingredients. As we had started eating,...

This afternoon, I had created a very “fusion” combo for my son and myself.=> Cabbage omelettes + sesame seeds rice balls + stir-fried mushrooms.(However, my son who is a fan of soup, after finishing his meals, said “Mummy, where is today’s soup?” :-[ )
This lunch combo is also great to use as a bento set. Recipes for cabbage omelette rolls and sesame seeds rice ball are adapted and modified from...

This is a VERY VERY simple dish and it is my first attempt for finger food (“tapas”).
Grated cheese (I used mozellara)
1) Sliced eggplants thinly. Soak them into the salted water to get rid of the bitterness.
2) Pat dry the eggplants with kitchen towels.
3) Cover the baking tray with aluminium foil.
4) Arrange the eggplants on the tray and sprinkle with grated cheese.

When my son was first introduced to prawn, he disliked it very much and even spit it out. I just can’t believe that things are so difference now. Prawn has started to gain its popularity in my son’s diet. He can eat as many prawns as we do!
This recipe is adapted and modified from Quick and Easy Hawkers’ Fair. Because of my son who can’t eat spicy stuff, I had to omit 2 ingredients: chilli padi and...

This recipe is adapted and modified based on Stuffed Glutten Balls from Quick & Easy Hawkers’ Fair. Instead of using gluten balls, I use tofu poks.

Ingredients:25 tofu poks100g minced meat100g minced prawn paste100g fish paste2 water chessnut (chopped...
