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...

Cold Soba Noodle Salad

  On hotter days, I often skip doing any serious cooking and turn to making simple and easy-to-prepare meals for lunch, like this cold soba noodle salad. This Asian inspired fusion one-dish meal is welcomed most by my family who loves both noodles and salad. It’s so refreshing and appetizing yet filing that we don’t mind having it as meal for the whole day.   Soba noodles, a type of Japanese thin...

Quick Congee with Grilled Salmon

  A couple months back, a cooking method on how to whip up a super-fast congee (Chinese rice porridge, 快速煲靚粥) was widely circulated among the internet users, as well as being demonstrated on cooking shows in Hong Kong and Taiwan.   The secret behind this method lies on the application of a little scientific know-how. Washed raw rice after being frozen will undergo a structural change. This...

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...

Pumpkin Chicken Soup

  Hazardous haze, caused by open burning at plantations in Sumatra, Indonesia, has been enveloping Singapore, parts of West Malaysia and some Indonesian cities recently. For some parts of Malaysia, the pollution index hit a record high and emergency had to be declared, forcing schools to close and people to stay indoors. As the smog headed north reaching Kuala Lumpur late last week, it’s now our turn...

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,...
