  2. Mrs Ergül says:

    Hi there! Where d you usually buy your pine nuts in Singapore??

    • food-4tots says:

      Mrs Ergül: I bought mine from NTUC supermarket under the organic department. You can also get them from Cold Storage or any shop that carries organic food. 😉

  3. Sharon says:

    The photots are really helpful for me. Thanks

  4. Julia says:

    Do you know the chinese name of hairy gourd?

  5. Jessica says:

    Hihi.. do u know where can i purchase those nice red color cherry for cake decoration ?

    Are they seedless one ?

    • food-4tots says:

      Jessica: Sorry for the late reply. I’m not very sure. Maybe you can check it out at those baking supplies shops. Mine are fresh cherries with seed. If not mistaken, the cherry season is just over. Thus, it is a bit difficult to find them in the supermarket. 😉

  6. Sheila says:

    Hi, what would you recommend from your recipes for my toddler’s school X’mas party? I would like to prepare something that can be done the night before so that I don’t have to rush in the morning. I would like to avoid biscuits/cookies as kids are prone to cough and heatiness. Thanks vm!

  7. Doris koh says:

    Hi, can i use stain steel pot to cook the above mentioned Chinese herbs ? Thanks in advance 🙂

    • food-4tots says:

      Doris: To answer your question, I would like to share an excerpt from the book called “Soups for Expelling Dampness & Heat:

      Q: What kind of pot should I use to make Chinese soups?
      A: The material of the pot directly affects the medicinal value of the soup. The safest is always clay pot because ceramic is very stable even at high temperature and it tends to have the least chemical reaction with any ingredient. The soup also boils very evenly in a clay pot. It tastes light and it has the most therapeutic effect. Your 2nd choice would be electronic ceramic slow cooker. Other choices include stainless steel pot, vacuum cooker and pressure cooker, with their suitability for making soups in descending order.

      Hope this explanation clears your doubt. 😉

  8. Doris koh says:

    I heard my friend that some Chinese herbs react with metal. hence is not advisable to use metal pot to brew / cook it. Because i am working mummy and I need to use thermal pot to cook dinner for daughter.

    • food-4tots says:

      Doris: Please refer to my previous answer. Maybe you can consider buying an electronic claypot/ ceramic slow cooker in making Chinese soup. Hope it helps. 🙂

  9. Sarah says:

    Hi, where and how do you buy those metal tips for frosting? I went to Sun Lik earlier today and the uncle told me there’s a specific number for every metal tip. Maybe you could teach me? (-:
    Thanks! And your site’s a great discovery!

  10. Annie says:

    Hi, may I know what is cointreau and where to buy it in KL?

  11. Meenal says:

    Hi, my daughter will only eat crunchy and dry food. Plain cornflakes, chappatis, plain rice. Can you suggest what recipes should I try for her.

    Also your plain flour is maida right. Can I substitute it wit nanchni or whole wheat flour in your recipes.

    Do reply.


    • food-4tots says:

      Meenal: Maybe you can try oven baked fries, oven baked fish fingers and cauliflower parathas. Please note that my recipes are only recommended for toddlers 2.5 years old and above. I’m not sure about maida and nanchni as I haven’t tried it out myself. So sorry about that. 😉

  12. Can u please tell me where do you buy Millets in Singapore?

  13. hunny bee says:

    Hi, may I know what is plain flour used in making soup? Is it wheat flour (tepung gandum)? Thanks

  14. AISHWARYA says:

    Hiiii may I know where can I buy little millet rice in

  15. eve says:

    Hi, I wanted to ask about wholemeal flour. Recently, I bought some organic wholemeal flour to make tortillas. My tortillas turned out fine except that it has a bit of bitter taste. May I know if the flour is not fresh or something wrong with my recipe. I put in 2 cups of wholemeal flour, 3tbs of ext virgin olive oil, salt and warm water for the tortilla n let it sit for about an hour after kneading. Please advice. Thanks.

    • food-4tots says:

      Eve: I don’t have this experience when using organic wholemeal flour. The only way to trouble shoot your problem is to do another round with other brand. Hope it helps! 😉

  16. Mummydee says:

    Great site! Love it. May i know is huai san suitable for 16mo toddler?

    • food-4tots says:

      Mummydee: Thank you for loving my site! I don’t see any problem. You can start with fresh Japanese huai san (nagaimo yam) but it may cost you double the price if you don’t mind. For dried Chinese huai san, make sure they are free from sulphur. 🙂
