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,...

Wholemeal crepes

  Crepes (or crêpes) are very thin pancakes. They originated from Brittany, a region in the north-west of France. Unlike pancakes, crepes don’t require leavening agent and have a higher content of milk.   Crepes come in two varieties: sweet (made with white or wheat flour and lightly sweetened) and savoury (made with buckwheat flour and unsweetened). While sweet crepes are often eaten as part of...

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...

Chicken and apple balls with barbecue dip

  Whenever I made these bite-sized chicken and apple balls, my hubby and son never seems to have enough. As they kept requesting me to cook this dish, I think I had cooked it more often than any other dishes in my family meal. So, what makes these eggless chicken balls taste so good? The secret lies with apple, cheese and a tingle of herbs, making them truly delicious and flavourful on their own even without...

Bread and butter pudding

  Bread and butter pudding is made by soaking buttered stale bread in custard and then baked till the custard is set. This English classic dessert, though made from simple ingredients, takes bread to the next level. It is one of the good old desserts that never fail to please my palate. For most people, the whole idea of making this pudding is to “salvage” the stale bread that is nearly going into...

How to make fish stock

  Homemade fish stock makes a great soup base for soups, congee, rice, braises, stews and sauces. It gives any seafood-based dish an immeasurable flavour even to the simplest recipe. Apart from flavour, it is extremely nutritious too as it’s a rich source of gelatin and minerals that our body requires. This is further mentioned by by Sally Fallon (author of Nourishing Traditions) in her article titled...

Sweet potato crisps

  Last year, I submitted my frozen tofu salad recipe to Annabel Karmel’s member recipe column for fun. Being one of the first 10 recipes unloaded in Autumn, I received a copy of Annabel Karmel’s “Top 100 Finger Foods” cookbook. And, the wonderful thing is that, it reached me two days before Christmas!! This book features a collection of many quick and easy recipes for both babies and older...

Egg in a basket (egg in toast)

  A “LOVE LETTER” TO MY HUBBY Dear Darling Hubby, As always, I agree wholeheartedly with you that flower, chocolate and romantic dinners aren’t the only sweet ideas for Valentine’s Day. So, this year, I have a brilliant Valentine’s idea to share with you. It’s a lovely breakfast meal that is extremely easy to make, yet tasty and healthy. Also, not pricey! It’s a winning combination...
