Popcorn Chicken

  “Kids love fast food” – that’s a common perception that I strongly disagree with. Given so many healthy choices around, do I have to introduce this unhealthy stuff to my son? No, of course I don’t. To set a good example to my son, my hubby and I have decided to stop eating fast food since we moved to Singapore five years ago. For that, my son also happily follows our footsteps. The only...

Salmon Potato Fish Cakes

  Salmon provides us with an excellent source of omega-3. So, try using whichever cooking method you prefer to add this great brain food to your child’s diet once a week. If you have not succeeded in any of your previous attempts, perhaps give these salmon potato fish cakes a try. Who doesn’t like finger food, especially if they are BAKED not DEEP-FRIED?   In this recipe, fresh salmon is combined...

Orange Date Walnut Muffins

  Does your child like muffins? My son does. He will beam from ear to ear whenever he sees me busy making muffins in the kitchen. He has been my loyal muffin supporter from day one I learned making homemade muffins. Sometimes, he will request me to bake some for him to bring to school which makes me love making muffins even more.   Making muffins is indeed easy and has the highest rate of success...

Oatmeal Coconut Fruit Nut Cookies

  This school term, my son is required to take up swimming lessons as part of his PE curriculum. While attending one of his swimming lessons, I had a casual chat with my son’s class teacher. She suggested that I packed some light snack for my son to bring along to eat after his swimming lessons. My first thought was to make those healthy, energy-boosting oat bars that I posted awhile back. However, these...

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...

Multigrain Congee

  Lately, my family has a new liking. That’s my multigrain congee (rice porridge). Having this tasty yet healthy meal makes our bellies feel so satisfied and great.   This congee is not exactly 100% multigrain. Instead, it’s made up of 50% multigrain, 20% millet and 30% short grain rice. The presence of millet and short grain rice gives the texture a new dimension from toothsome to smooth, as...

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,...

Mango Lassi

  We just returned from Malaysia where we spent our short vacation at our hometowns of Kuala Lumpur and Penang. It was real fun to get together with relatives and old friends, as well as pampering our tummies with our favourite local cuisines. But, sad to say, the quality for some of them had deteriorated and didn’t quite keep up to our expectation. Meanwhile, the food prices were marked higher than...
