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...

Taro Pumpkin Buns

  Hi everyone! I’m back. Life had been very hectic for the past two months till I had no time to blog. My family and I were busy packing and unpacking. Yup, we had moved house! It’s a cross-country move from Singapore back to our home country, Malaysia – my 2nd major move so far! It’s very tiring and challenging. We had a lot of things to juggle and sort out within a short period of time. But now,...

Peanut Satay Sauce

  I, being a big fan of Malaysian-style satay, love the peanut sauce more than the satay. Having said that, they still complement each other perfectly.  To have one and not the other, it won’t be a complete meal to me.   A while back, I chanced upon a satay dip recipe in Annabel Karmel’s Family Cookbook Magazine. I truly liked her brilliant idea in using this satay dip as a way to encourage...

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...

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...

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,...
