How To Make Chicken Stock

  Chicken stock is the secret ubiquitous ingredient that enhances our cooking. It’s the essential base for soups, sauces, stews, stir-fry etc. Homemade chicken stock is far more superior than what you can buy at the store. It is guaranteed to be 100% natural, free of preservative and is nourishing. I use chicken stock in most of my cooking and have started to make my own chicken stock after I realised...

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

  My family and I love satay. Whenever we want to eat satay, we will usually head to Kajang, a small town 25km from Kuala Lumpur where our favourite satay stall is located. As it is too far from our place, we only frequent it once in a while. Nevertheless, I have figured out a way to fix our satay craving, and that’s making my own satay!!   Making authentic Malaysian satay with peanut dipping sauce...

Homemade Pork Floss

  Pork floss is a seasoned, shredded dry pork food with cottony texture. Its usage is very versatile. It can be used as topping for congee or filling for sushi rolls, breads and pastries. It also can be eaten as snack. That’s my favourite way of eating it too. Once I start eating it, I can’t put a stop to it. It is insanely addictive!   Nowadays, commercially-produced pork floss is getting very...

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...

Sticky Chicken Drumsticks

  When I started this blog, there were just two things in my mind – sharing kids-friendly recipes and inspiring parents to cook for their family. But never did I expect that one day it would also inspire my hubby to put on the apron. Although he has never cooked a single dish before (not even an egg), he can now easily whip up some simple and decent meals for the family by following my recipes! Finally,...

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...

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...

Chicken tikka masala

  Chicken tikka masala (CTM) is a mild Indian curry dish of bite-sized chicken chunks (tikka) marinated and cooked in a tandoor oven, then added to a spicy sauce (masala). This is one dish I must order whenever I dine in an Indian restaurant. It has such a perfect blend of spices and flavour that goes well with either naans or rice.   After reading more about this dish, I was quite surprised to learn...
