How to make fish stock

  Homemade fish stock makes a great soup base for soups, congee, rice, braises, stews and sauces. It gives any seafood-based dish an immeasurable flavour even to the simplest recipe. Apart from flavour, it is extremely nutritious too as it’s a rich source of gelatin and minerals that our body requires. This is further mentioned by by Sally Fallon (author of Nourishing Traditions) in her article titled...

Sweet potato crisps

  Last year, I submitted my frozen tofu salad recipe to Annabel Karmel’s member recipe column for fun. Being one of the first 10 recipes unloaded in Autumn, I received a copy of Annabel Karmel’s “Top 100 Finger Foods” cookbook. And, the wonderful thing is that, it reached me two days before Christmas!! This book features a collection of many quick and easy recipes for both babies and older...

Egg in a basket (egg in toast)

  A “LOVE LETTER” TO MY HUBBY Dear Darling Hubby, As always, I agree wholeheartedly with you that flower, chocolate and romantic dinners aren’t the only sweet ideas for Valentine’s Day. So, this year, I have a brilliant Valentine’s idea to share with you. It’s a lovely breakfast meal that is extremely easy to make, yet tasty and healthy. Also, not pricey! It’s a winning combination...

Peanut cookies

  In the past, every Lunar New Year, my mother would surely bake some festive cookies for the family. Being her key assistant cum tester, I had the least interest in making peanut cookies. To-date, I still find them neither tasty nor appealing in looks. Hence, they never make it to my “to-bake” list for Lunar New Year. As they say, never say never. I had a change of heart recently and decided to bake...

Simple breadsticks

  Hi everyone, Happy New Year !!   Time flies! It has been three months since my last update. Sorry to keep everyone waiting, but thanks so much for your kind patience and continuing support!!!   During this period, life was exceptionally hectic with many unexpected things happened. Last December, instead of having Mr Santa, sick bug paid us a surprise visit. I had to battle with a persistent...

Crispy anchovies

  Before my son turned one, I excluded salt, sugar and oil from his diet. For this reason, I put off the idea of using dried anchovies (or ikan bilis) to make stock for his porridge. Only when he grew older, I began to use anchovies to prepare fish soup for him.   Actually, I had bookmarked one very simple and easy anchovy recipe from a Japanese cookbook that I would like to share with you for a long...

Coconut banana muffins

  My hubby and I are great fans for coconuts but our 6 year-old son is definitely not. Early this year, he tasted steamed nian gao (年高, a sticky cake served during Chinese New Year) coated with fresh coconut flakes for the first time. Within minutes, he threw up. Whew! that was scary! It made me wonder if the taste of fresh coconut flakes is really that terrible to him. Until now, I still couldn’t...

Burdock root soup

  Burdock is a biennial plant, cultivated for its root to be consumed as a vegetable. Burdock root 牛蒡 (other popular names: Arctium lappal, Greater burdock, edible burdock, Lappa burdock) is also called “gobō” in Japan and “u-eong”u-eong” in Korea. When I first saw burdock root at the wet market, I had mistaken it with a tuber called huai san 淮山 or shan yao 山药...

Mini fluffy pancakes

  Mini dollar pancakes are those small round pancakes with 3-4cm in diameter. My son was treated with these mini dollar pancakes by his 2nd aunt during our last trip to Penang. It was love at first bite for him. Ever since then, he kept reminding us of  his memorable food experience. Knowing that he loved these pancakes so much, I started my mini pancake experiment. After a few rounds of trial and errors,...

Oven baked fish fingers

    What’s your favourite finger food? If I were to name one, it would be fish fingers (or fish sticks). Who doesn’t love fish fingers? Not even a picky eater.   Trust me! Making your own fish fingers from scratch is very easy and they taste absolutely delicious too. Besides, you have full control in the selection of the type of fish and seasoning. If you have 30 minutes or so to spare for...
