Frozen tofu salad with creamy sesame dressing

  Being a curious person, I always love asking questions. Since becoming a mom, a home chef and a food blogger, I have even more questions to ask – more than ever before! Unfortunately, most are still unanswered.   But I believe if I keep asking questions, it will surely lead me to some pleasant discoveries.   “FROZEN TOFU” – I found this “mysterious” ingredient in Wendy’s post...

Japanese steamed sausage cakes

  Mushi-pan ( 蒸しパン ), literally translated as steamed cupbread. But if you ask Uncle Google, you will also find it being associated with buns, cakes or muffins. Personally, I like to call it a “cake” as its texture is closer to a light version of mini cupcake, but not as dense and chewy as the tradition Chinese prosperity cakes (“fatt gou/ huat kueh” 发糕). I must say that mushipan is...

Wholemeal cookies

  Most kids love cookies – my son included. But, he often gets a nose bleed if he eats them too often. For this reason, I seldom offer him cookies. Lately, a recipe with flower shaped cookies in a cookbook caught his attention. He was so amazed with its appealing appearance that he kept pestering me to bake some for him. Of course, I was quite reluctant initially but finally relented as the recipe sounded...

Cameron Highlands – a back to nature trip

  During our recent holidays, we spent 3 days 2 nights in Cameron Highlands, and it is the first visit for both my son and I.   Located in the state of Pahang, Cameron Highlands is one of the popular holiday destinations in Malaysia. At about 1,500 metres above sea level,  it is the highest area on the mainland with temperature ranging between 15° and 25° Celsius. Its cool climate, tranquility...

Steamed pumpkin muffins

  My family had a wonderful time during our recent holidays. We went to Kuala Lumpur first, then to Cameron Highlands and lastly ended in Penang. The only regret was that our duration in Penang was too short to cover our usual to-eat (no, must-eat) list. Just thinking of this food heaven, my stomach has already started rumblimg….oh my! I will share with you some photos I had taken during our Cameron...

Almond crisps

  Hi everyone, we are nearing the June school holidays! So, what have you planned for your children for this month-long holidays? For me, I intend to engage my son with more cooking/ baking activities. My son loves playing the role of “master chef” and is always finding ways to make my kitchen his playground. During our past culinary adventures, we had so much fun and happy moments.   Cooking/...

Long bean omelette

  Vegetables are good for health and should be an essential part of a well-balanced diet. Given the fact, parents should take the initiave to familiarize their children with different types of vegetables from young. Even if your children hate/ reject vegetable, do not stop offering it to them. As long as you continue trying, there is very good chance that they would eventually accept it. Here are some...

Broccoli and bow-tie pasta

  Broccoli is one of the few vegetables that seem to have an universal appeal to children. Given its vibrant colour and distinctive flavour, toddlers are often happy to pick it up as part of their meal. That explains why many mums told me that they had the least headache when introducing broccoli to their children at an early stage even for those who were fussy on eating greens.   Broccoli is a member...

Fresh mango pudding

  Each time we had dim sum in our favourite Chinese restaurant, we would surely order their best-selling mango pudding. Unlike others, this restaurant used fresh mangoes to make their mango pudding instead of canned mangoes or mango essences. Both its texture and taste of the pudding pleased our palate very well. So, whenever my hubby and son suggested the idea of making this dessert at home, I would refuse...

Crispy roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

When I have the urge to nibble on something crispy and crunchy, I will make my homemade roasted cashews, roasted almonds or sesame crisps to satisfy my craving. Lately, I had added one new found healthy snack to my list. Roasted chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are the snack that I am currently addicted to. They bear a little resemblance to those fried chickpeas (kacang putih) sold by Indian hawkers...
