Sushi rolls 寿司卷

I always love to admire those beautiful sushi rolls posted by other food bloggers but have never attempt to make it myself. Until recently, when my son started to crave for Japanese food especially sushi, I decided to give it a try. It took me quite a while to learn the “theory” before proceeding to the “practical”. As compared to baking, the risk of “disaster” is definitely lesser. No matter what...

Broccoli – How to blanch

“What is your favourite vegetable?” “BROCCOLI!!”That’s the immediate response I always get from my son. The strange thing is he enjoys eating broccoli using his fingers. Maybe it is really a “finger lickin’ good” vegetable! When I first started to make my own baby food, I read about broccoli is one of the high-nitrate vegetables (besides beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, spinach etc) which should...

Teriyaki chicken skew (Yakitori)

This teriyaki chicken skew (Yakitori) is a very simple and easy dish. You can even marinate the chicken the night before and grill it the next day. It is our family latest hit. I hope my special visitor who had requested for this recipe (when I put a picture of this dish at my previous posting) will enjoy making it for her children from a Japanese cookbook shared by my cousin in Japan. Servings: 2-3  Ingredients: 2...

SUPER FAST MEAL (超级简单快餐)

Sometimes, I really don’t favour the idea to dine out. If I go to Ikea, under normal circumstances, I need to spend around 20 minutes for traveling and another 20-30 minutes to find a place and order my food (during peak hours). The total time spent is actually equivalent (or maybe more) to cooking a simple one-dish meal at home. This is why I love one-dish meal so much. Among the entire one-dish meals I...

Scrambled eggs with cauliflowers

Previously, my son always rejected cauliflowers but I managed to “convince & confuse” him with this recipe. Since then, he can easily accept cauliflower in other cooking methods. Sounds like “Crouching tiger, hidden dragon” as described by my foodie friend? In fact, this is the most effective way to coax a child to eat certain vegetables. This recipe is adapted and modified from...

Tuna pasta

I haven’t posted any new pasta recipe for quite some time. This doesn’t mean we have stopped eating pasta. Pasta is always our family “all-time favourite ” especially for my son. He eats a variety of pasta – spaghetti, angel hair, shell, macaroni, fusilli (spiral), penne, linguine & alphabet. Good news to all the busy mommies and career women! I am going to share a very simple pasta dish...

One-dish meal – Featured recipe in Delicious Asian Food (Hochiak)

I was pleasantly delighted when I received the invitation to be the guest chef for one of my favourite “online cookbooks” – Delicious Asian Food (also known as Hochiak) authored by PabloPabla. Thanks to Pablo! I am certainly honoured. It is the first Asian food blog which was strongly recommended by my good friend when I first started cooking for the family. DAF featured a collection of delicious...

Beetroot soup

Beetroot (甜菜根) is a new vegetable to me. I only started eating beetroot 2 years ago after my good friend, Alice from Bits of Taste n Life introduced it to me. I didn’t know that there are so many great benefits eating beetroot until I read about it from here and here. The benefits of beetroot are:a) it is a rich source of carbohydrates, a good source of protein, and has high levels of important vitamins,...

FOODBUZZ

Few weeks ago, I received a package from Foodbuzz. It was the much awaited Foodbuzz apron and spatula – goodies for all the Featured Publishers in celebration of the Foodbuzz Publisher Community. Thanks Foodbuzz! My son was even more anxious than I am to try on the apron and spatula, and posed for the camera. What is Foodbuzz? Foodbuzz is the only online community with content created by food bloggers and...

Zucchini cakes – revisit

As mentioned in my early post, when I first made zucchini cakes, I didn’t have a large zucchini so it didn’t turn out close to the original recipe I followed. This round, with a large zucchini on hand and adding 1 extra egg, I made a revisit to this recipe. For recipe, please refer to here. If you have a picky eater who refuses to eat vegetables, give it a try. But remember to control the amount...
