Cheese breadsticks (tangzhong/ water roux method)

It’s a bread making method that I never know its existence until I read about it from Grace’s blog (Kitchen Corner). [Please be prepared when you hop over to her blog as you may be drown by her mouth-watering bakes especially her homemade ice-cream.  Grace,...

Honey balsamic chicken drumsticks

The Christmas spirit is in the air! Can you feel it? I certainly do. I always enjoy the joyful atmosphere of Christmas even though I don’t celebrate the occasion. Seeing Christmas decorations, listening to Christmas songs and eating Christmas cookies really put me in a jolly holiday mood. With this festive vibe cheering everywhere, it makes me (ie this home chef) feel like cooking less and join in the...

Gingerbread man cookies

“All I want for Christmas is my gingerbread man cookies!!” That’s my son’s wish for each Christmas. In the past, I would buy it from the bakery shop to save the hassle. But this year, I decided to make them by myself as I find it easy to do. Most importantly, mother and son had a whole load of fun making them together!! Originally I planned to make gingerbread much earlier. Unfortunately, both my...

Thin-crust pizza

My family loves homemade pizza for several reasons. One of them is that I can easily cater to all kind of requests such as: “More cheeses, please? Wait, why not have a mixture of Mozallera, Parmesan and Cheddar? That will be ideal.” “Pineapples, more and more! Mummy!” “Don’t forget to put in Pepperoni, the one without black pepper please” “Yes, thin crust only. Remember to add semolina flour...

Japanese egg salad sandwiches

  Whether you are looking for a simple breakfast, a grab-n-go lunch or a light dinner, sandwich is a quick and easy solution. However, not all sandwiches are equally nutritious. Some are healthy but unappealing while some can be sinfully lip-smacking. Given the versatility in making sandwiches, parents can easily jazz them up with creative presentation and nutritious filings for their child. Here are...

Coconut butter cookies

Have you ever heard or tried Danish butter cookies before? During my childhood days, they are regarded as the most premium cookies (at least to me) as not all households could afford this luxury product. Occasionally, we would receive a tin of assorted Danish butter cookies from visitors as gift. For me, the arrival of this “extra-ordinary” treat brought lots of joys and excitement. Out of politeness, I had...

Blueberry orange muffins

  “Didn’t you post a blueberry muffin recipe before?” asked my hubby when he saw me editing the photos for this post. I replied “They are not the same, my dear. Both use different ingredients and different methods. I know it’s not the blueberry season now but I just can’t wait till the next season to share this recipe with my readers. Isn’t it your favourite? ”. “Yes, in fact, it’s...

Apple flapjacks

Oat is among the most nutritious grain that one can introduce to a child’s diet. As it’s easily digestable, it’s good to get your child to start enjoying oats at an early age. What’s more when this grain is also an excellent source of dietary fiber, B-vitamins (thiamin), vitamin E, calcium, protein, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc and phosphorus. Having a regular helping of oats can...

Honey roasted almonds

  Although toddlers eat smaller portion than adults do, they definitely need more energy and nutrient to support their rapid growth. From this aspect, snacks can play a significant role in fortifying their dietary requirements. Hence, parents and caretaker need to prepare snacks that are as healthy as possible. It’s also important to keep the serving size small and plan the serving time well too so...

Cauliflower cheese

My flat is a bit of mess now as it is the midst of a 10-days upgrading work to the toilets that is largely government-sponsored. For the entire period, both kitchen and toilets are off limit. So, no cooking and washing for me (Yay!), neither do I have any internet connection. As my wireless modem is obstructing the work, I can only plug on in the evening after the workers have left. What else can make things...
