Steamed Banana Cupcakes

  My steamed muffins and cupcakes recipes have been gaining popularity among my readers particularly two groups. The first group is those who have no oven while the second group comprises mommies who prefer steaming to baking. They love these recipes so much so that they have been requesting me to post more of such recipes on my blog.   In a way to thank their kind support, here is another MUST TRY...

Orange Cranberry Wheat Germ Muffins

  Lately, I have been reading up on wheat germ (小麦胚芽) and am amazed by the long list of nutrients it contains. Although tiny in size, it is packed with protein, vitamin E, folic acid, phosphorus, thiamine, zinc and magnesium. It is also a good source of dietary fiber. Hence, it would be great to incorporate wheat germ into our diet. You can add it into smoothies, milk shakes, granola, muffins,...

Homemade Pandan Kaya

  Kaya is a popular jam spread in both Malaysia and Singapore. It is a thick jam made from fresh coconut milk, eggs and sugar, infused with the scent of pandan leaves (screw pine leaves). It is often slathered together with a generous slab of butter in between two slices of crisp toast, hence named “kaya toast”.   When I was a child, I ate kaya made by my mom. But nowadays, I buy them. After trying...

Homemade Goldfish Crackers

  Have you ever tried making your own cookie cutter? I had just made my very first mini fishy cutters, and had used them to make these cute tiny goldfish crackers.  Are you inspired to make them for your little ones too? It’s an easy recipe. If I can do it, so can you.   Let’s start with the DIY cookie cutters. All you need is an aluminum can (use more if you plan to have more fun), scissors,...

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...

Braised Tofu with Corns and Cucumbers

  Tofu has always been my favourite food ingredient for cooking. I love how it can miraculously fit into a variety of recipes ranging from salad to dressing to entrée and more. Other than its versatility, tofu is also inexpensive and rich in protein. That’s why it’s a must-have item in my fridge.   Tofu, with its ability to absorb flavour, is best braised turning its seemingly bland taste into...

Steamed Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

  Chocolate has long been termed as a “bad guy” that may cause a number of health issues, including acne, obesity, tooth decay, hyperactivity and diabetes. Does this mean that our kids should stay away from chocolate? Of course not if we are talking about dark chocolate. It can still be part of your child’s diet if you allow him to consume it moderately on an occasion basis. For a healthier choice,...

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 Granola

  During school days, my son will usually have bread for breakfast. But on alternate days, he will have muesli cereals which I had bought from the supermarket. I thought this would be more convenient than making them from scratch. After all, there are so many brands to choose from. But now, I think otherwise after making my first granola.     Making your own version of granola is hassle-free,...

Almond Biscotti

  In the blink of an eye, it’s already March. Chinese Lunar New Year has passed and the first quarter of the year will soon be over. March is also a month where seven of my family members celebrate their birthdays. This includes my not-so-little boy (who is turning eight soon) and me. As usual, we don’t hold birthday parties but will celebrate in a simple way. On my recent birthday, my hubby and...
