Chrysanthemum and wolfberry tea

  Ever since I started my food blog one and half year ago, I have been starring at the computer more often and for longer duration too. As a consequence, both my short-sighted and astigmatism have deteriorated. Making thing worse is that I also suffered from long-sighted. Admittedly, these are also signs of aging, and hopefully wiser. ūüėČ   Those blurry eyes of mine reminded me of a chrysanthemum...

Healthy multi-grain bread

  Recently I bought a KitchenAid stand mixer which entitled me to enroll for 2 free baking classes provided by Mayer.   During my 1st baking class, I learnt how to make healthy multigrain bread and green tea castella cakes. The class was conducted by a young and talented chef (Chef Sam) who gave a lot of valuable baking tips. Both the¬†items turned out to be very delicious, especially the freshly...

Oatmeal banana raisin muffins

  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‚Ķ‚Ķ.   I...

Simple omelette

  Some¬†people avoid eggs because of its cholesterol content. However,¬†one must also not forget that eggs also contain important nutritional contents like protein, iron, minerals and B vitamins. All you need to do is to plan your diet accordingly and be mindful of the cholesterol in egg and other food you eat every day. Limit your egg intake to 3-4 eggs per week. For me, it‚Äôs important to have everything...

Power-packed oat bars

  Health expert or nutritionist always stressed that good nutrition starts with breakfast, especially so for children. This is because good nutrition promotes health, and a healthy child learns better.   On occasions where a kid doesn‚Äôt 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...

How to make muffins

For those who are first timer at making muffins or those whose muffins are still turning out to be less than (or like mine initially, far from)¬†perfect,¬†the following¬†tips will definitely come in¬†handy¬†in your next attempt.   A)...

Homemade soybean milk

  Soybean milk (ŤĪÜśįīÔľČis a healthy, nutritious,and¬†delicious¬†drink for everyone. It’s also one of my family’s favourite drinks.¬†For convenience, we usually¬†consume those pre-packed¬†ones¬†even though they¬†lack the¬†wholesome freshness in¬†taste. Beggar can’t be choosy, right?   But recently I chanced upon¬†a very¬†informative post written by Dr Leslie Tay of¬†ieatishootipost...

Banana bread

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...

Steamed sweet potato buns

  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.   On...

Water chestnut and bamboo cane drink

This is another body cooling and thirst quenching drink I love to boil for my family on¬†hot and heaty days.¬†¬†The method of preparation is as simple as that for the barley drink recipe¬†which I¬†posted¬†earlier.   I first learnt about this method¬†from a neighbour. The drink¬†is¬†her family’s all-time favourite.¬†A kid whom she¬†babysat many years ago loved it so much that¬†he¬†even¬†requested...
