Invited Food Review at Ko-Fu-Loft (Penang) – Part I

During my recent Penang vacation, I attended my first invited food review at Ko-Fu-Loft (口福楼), Gurney Plaza. I was very delighted to be included in what is by far the largest gathering of Penang food bloggers attending a food review. I find the occasion an enjoyable one. We had a great time sharing our personal opinion on food, blogging experiences and photography tips. I would like to thank...

My recipe column «亲子厨房» featured in Kwong Wah Yit Poh

  I would like to thank my friend EC and Kwong Wah Yit Poh (KWYP) (光华日报) for inviting me to be one of their food panelists in the daily recipe column.

Raisin and seed rolls

  Having tried my hand at making sausage rolls and pizza, I was on the look out for a good bread recipe.  Not long ago, I chanced upon a simple and easy bread recipe called “soft raisin bread” from Daily Delicious.   This recipe uses a sweet bun dough which is similar to the sausage rolls recipe I tried earlier except it does not use egg and sausage. You just need to shape the dough into...

Japanese eggplants with sweet and sour sauce

Colours don’t just make our food look more appealing but also play a vital role in a healthy diet. Thus, the more colours in our diet, the healthier we will be. Eating fruits and vegetables of different colours provide important vitamins, minerals, fibre and natural plant compounds known as, phytochemicals, that may help protect us from major diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Barley drink (薏米水)

  Singapore has been hit by a dry spell since April.  High temperature got many people sick, including members of my family.  The flu bug has been going around town. It started with my hubby, followed by my son, then my mother-in-law (who was here for a short vacation) and finally me (who had not fallen sick for the past 2 years!). During this period, I was drained and in no mood to cook or bake. That...

Stir-fried brown beehoon (rice vermicelli)

  Have you tried eating brown beehoon (brown rice vermicelli) before? If this is the first time you come across it, don’t be taken aback with the word “brown” and associate it with brown rice or whole wheat noodles. The one that I tried is totally different in term of flavor and texture. It is a product of Thailand (Star Lion brand – see photo below) which I bought from my local supermarket. I...

Welcome to my new home!

But it may take quite a while before I can get the “ideal” layout. Right now, I just want to continue blogging so that I won’t keep everyone waiting for too long.   Here, I would like to express my appreciation...

Salmon cakes – Featured recipe for My Cooking Hut

  Ever since I was a child, I perceive and express better through pictures instead of words. In scientific term, I am a right brain person. (No wonder I did badly in written essay in my school years. ) Now, whenever I search for recipes online, I am easily sold by impressive-looking photos. They motivate me to try the recipes out as soon as I can lay my hands on the ingredients. If you love to see beautiful...
