Popcorn is high on fiber, low on calories, but also packed with energy. Compared to sugar-filled candy or chocolate bars, popcorn is still a better (if not the best) choice for snack. If prepare correctly and eat in moderation, it can be considered a healthy snack for kids.
You should consider making your own popcorn rather than buying from outside. Firstly, the corn kernels are inexpensive. Secondly, it’s...

I have been making scones quite often as they are extremely easy to make. Without having to bring out the electrical beater, I can easily whip up a batch of warm scones in no time for breakfast, brunch and teatime.
The key to the making of a good scone lies in the technique itself. Do not overwork the dough as it can make the scones hard.
This cranberry scone recipe is adapted from Farmgirl’s Cranberry...

I love eating all kinds of tree nuts. Once I start munching them, I can never put a stop to it. Yes, I can go nuts on nuts! So too is my hubby. We are “NUTTY” people!
During festive seasons, we see wide selection of processed nuts at the supermarkets. We will be spoilt by choices. For the premium brands, the prices are not cheap as well. Because of that, we only consumed them sparingly and...

My son loves oats to bits. He can polish up a whole bowl of oatmeal breakfast that his dad often made for him during weekends. I, unlike him, dislike oats, and will only eat oats in muesli breakfast cereal. Whenever I see oatmeal, it reminds me of the oatmeal I ate when I was sick during childhood. And, this perception has stuck deep into my memory and was tough to erase. That was until recently…….

On occasions where a kid doesn’t have a good breakfast and needs energy to sustain through the day, getting a snack can be an important energy booster for them. But, how can one have a snack that...

Do you have problems clearing your fully ripen bananas at home? I always have, and don’t know how to deal with them except to gobble them up fast so as not see them go to waste.
That was until recently when I chanced upon a wonderful banana bread recipe from Bits of Taste. The recipe and preparation were adapted from a YouTube video which demonstrated how to make this old fashioned banana bread in a...

I came to know from my schoolmate, BT that her mother is good at making homemade steamed buns (pao), be it with char-siew (barbecue pork), lotus paste or sweet potato stuffing. Her 4-years old son likes them a lot. When I expressed my eagerness to learn from her mother, she had immediately obliged to my request and arranged a bun making session for me with her mom when I was back home in Penang recently.

Scone is a small British quickbread of Scottish origin. The original scone was round and flat, usually the size of a small plate. It was made with unleavened oats and baked on a griddle, then cut into triangle-like quadrants for serving. Today, scones sold commercially are usually round in shape but homemade scones have taken into various shapes: triangles, rounds and squares.
What is a good scone?

During our childhood days, this pancake was made from the leftover batter used for french toast or pan-fried nian gao (Chinese New Year glutinous rice cake). It was always a hit in the family. Due to the limited supply, we always walloped the pancake first even though it was still hot from the pan.
Nowadays, it has become a hit to all my nieces and nephews too. For those who are staying overseas, my mother...
