Almond Chocolate Butter

  Making nut butter from scratch is pretty easy. Once you have learned the basic blending techniques, you can easily whip up any kind of nut butters (such as peanut butter) or mixed nut and seed butters, in small or big batches, as and when you like.   This “so heavenly good” almond chocolate butter is truly the almond version of Nutella, as described by Love and Olive Oil, which I can’t agree...

Strawberry Cream Cheese Popsicles

  On a scorching hot afternoon, nothing could be better than having a cool treat to chill you down. Homemade popsicles are my son’s all-time favourite cool treat. Whenever there are fresh and cheap berries in the market, I will make a bunch of popsicles and stock them in the fridge. The berries season is back now, and it’s time to dig out my popsicle moulds again.   Homemade popsicles are not...

Quick Congee with Grilled Salmon

  A couple months back, a cooking method on how to whip up a super-fast congee (Chinese rice porridge, 快速煲靚粥) was widely circulated among the internet users, as well as being demonstrated on cooking shows in Hong Kong and Taiwan.   The secret behind this method lies on the application of a little scientific know-how. Washed raw rice after being frozen will undergo a structural change. This...

Baked Mini Chocolate Donuts

  “There is a child in every one of us”.   The “little child” in me will automatically pop up when it comes to donuts. Hey, who doesn’t love donuts? The classic, ring-shaped, sugar-coated donut is my all-time favourite. They were so yummy, and I can never have enough of them.   I have started making my own donuts four years ago. I baked rather than deep-fried them. From then on, I have...

Lemongrass Pandan Drink

  My son’s intake of fluid is primarily milk and water. He doesn’t like soft drinks or any store-bought drinks. He finds their taste “weird”. But when it comes to homemade drinks, he always welcomes them and even asks for more.   Out of all the drinks that I make, herbal drink always gets the most attention. I make them all-year round as they are easy to make, cheap, low in sugar and high...

Homemade Peanut Butter

  Have you ever thought of making your own peanut butter? Just imagine this. Put roasted peanuts into your food processor. Add some sugar, salt and oil to your liking. Relax and let the machine do the wonder. After a couple of minutes, you will get to taste your  fresh creamy dreamy or even crunchy munchy homemade peanut butter!! How cool is that? It’s something you and your kids can have loads of fun...

Creamy Avocado Pasta

  Whenever I recommend avocado to new parents, most of them either dislike it or have no idea how to go about eating it. Hmmm….does this explain why avocado is one of the least popular fruits among Asian kids? Maybe, but I am still pondering about it.   I don’t have many recipes for avocado. However, from time to time, I would come out with some adventurous way of enjoying it. On one occasion,...

Mango Lassi

  We just returned from Malaysia where we spent our short vacation at our hometowns of Kuala Lumpur and Penang. It was real fun to get together with relatives and old friends, as well as pampering our tummies with our favourite local cuisines. But, sad to say, the quality for some of them had deteriorated and didn’t quite keep up to our expectation. Meanwhile, the food prices were marked higher than...

Quick and easy fish soup

  I am a great soup lover, and will always be. Nothing can be more comforting than having my stomach filled with a bowl of hearty and nutritious homemade soup during mealtime. So do my hubby and son. I think it’s already in our “Cantonese” genes.   Lately, the weather in Singapore has been hot. So drinking soup is a great way to replenish the fluid losses in our body. Speaking of...

Sweet potato crisps

  Last year, I submitted my frozen tofu salad recipe to Annabel Karmel’s member recipe column for fun. Being one of the first 10 recipes unloaded in Autumn, I received a copy of Annabel Karmel’s “Top 100 Finger Foods” cookbook. And, the wonderful thing is that, it reached me two days before Christmas!! This book features a collection of many quick and easy recipes for both babies and older...
