Salmon Potato Fish Cakes

  Salmon provides us with an excellent source of omega-3. So, try using whichever cooking method you prefer to add this great brain food to your child’s diet once a week. If you have not succeeded in any of your previous attempts, perhaps give these salmon potato fish cakes a try. Who doesn’t like finger food, especially if they are BAKED not DEEP-FRIED?   In this recipe, fresh salmon is combined...

Orange Date Walnut Muffins

  Does your child like muffins? My son does. He will beam from ear to ear whenever he sees me busy making muffins in the kitchen. He has been my loyal muffin supporter from day one I learned making homemade muffins. Sometimes, he will request me to bake some for him to bring to school which makes me love making muffins even more.   Making muffins is indeed easy and has the highest rate of success...

Oatmeal Coconut Fruit Nut Cookies

  This school term, my son is required to take up swimming lessons as part of his PE curriculum. While attending one of his swimming lessons, I had a casual chat with my son’s class teacher. She suggested that I packed some light snack for my son to bring along to eat after his swimming lessons. My first thought was to make those healthy, energy-boosting oat bars that I posted awhile back. However, these...

Gluten-free Brown Rice, Quinoa and Seeds Crackers

  Apart from vegetables, fruits, and proteins, eating more whole grains is an important component for an overall healthy diet. Whole-grains are made up of the entire grain kernel consisting of the bran, germ and endosperm. Thus, they provide more proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals than those of refined grains. Some of the common whole grains products are brown rice, millet, buckwheat, quinoa, rolled...

Apple Buns (tangzhong/ water roux method)

  The month-long school holidays have just started in Singapore. Oh gosh! I dare not imagine how chaotic the house will be with my Mr. Talk-A-Lot around during this period? Though he sometimes had me on my wit’s end, I still cherish a lot the precious and priceless moments we shared together. For this holiday, we will be away for a short vacation starting tomorrow. So, you won’t see any update in my...

Cranberry and pistachio biscotti

  One of the things I look forward to having coffee at Dome Cafe is not its coffee but the biscotti that is served together with it. This little treat compliments the coffee so well! I always wanted to grab hold of a packet to bring home. But, after seeing the price, I decided to give this homemade version a go. That’s when I realized how cheap, healthier and tastier they could be!! Moving forward,...

Apple muffins

  Apple is an excellent fruit to be introduced to babies and toddlers because it’s tasty, unlikely to cause allergy, easy-to-digest and packed with nutrients such as vitamin C, dietary fiber and flavonoids quercetin. In addition, it’s also very versatile and provides remarkable flavour and texture for cooking and baking.   My son is a great fan of apples but not I. Strangely, I have a current...

Peanut cookies

  In the past, every Lunar New Year, my mother would surely bake some festive cookies for the family. Being her key assistant cum tester, I had the least interest in making peanut cookies. To-date, I still find them neither tasty nor appealing in looks. Hence, they never make it to my “to-bake” list for Lunar New Year. As they say, never say never. I had a change of heart recently and decided to bake...

Sorry to keep everyone waiting, but thanks so much for your kind patience and continuing support!!!   During this period, life was exceptionally hectic with many unexpected things happened. Last December, instead of having Mr Santa, sick bug paid us a surprise visit. I had to battle with a persistent...

Coconut banana muffins

  My hubby and I are great fans for coconuts but our 6 year-old son is definitely not. Early this year, he tasted steamed nian gao (年高, a sticky cake served during Chinese New Year) coated with fresh coconut flakes for the first time. Within minutes, he threw up. Whew! that was scary! It made me wonder if the taste of fresh coconut flakes is really that terrible to him. Until now, I still couldn’t...
