Spicy Tomato Pasta with Tuna (Pork) Meatballs

“Restaurant standard pasta dish which can be served easily at home. To impress your loved ones, or visiting guests.”

Cooked this for my lunch meeting yesterday. Knowing that the cakes and desserts were the “highlight” of the session, we tried to keep our main course simple. Yup, made this meatball tomato pasta as part of my contributions to the potluck meal, I was glad that many of them enjoyed it pretty well!

Really nothing fanciful, my pasta dish was just one of the many versions. Of course, with a twist to adapt the pasta cooking as my own. More

Stir Fried Kangkong with Fermented Bean Curd Cubes (腐乳炒通菜)


“Kangkong, in a ‘Hong Kong’ way”

While Sambal Belacan Kangkong is a popular vegetable dish in Singapore and Malaysia, this Kangkong with fermented bean curd is pretty common in Hong Kong.

As you know, I am a die hard fan of Hong Kong (and its food!), I will not miss eating and cooking some of these signature Hong Kong household dishes by my own. More

Pan-Fried Chicken Wings in Soy Sauce

“The simplest chicken wing dish”

Learnt this from the new TVB cooking series hosted by Maria. It was a pretty good show as I learnt a lot of tips in cooking and selecting better food ingredients.

This is one of the dishes I think is the easiest and simplest to follow. However, it was rather bland in taste for the first time I tried it. More

Stir-fried Cabbage with bottled Teatree Mushrooms

“Low fat healthy cabbage dish, cooked with bottled mushrooms.”

For busy working adults and parents, they have most of their precious time occupied with work and children, so much so that they left very little or no time for themselves. However, they are still willing to sacrifice it so that they could prepare delicious homecooked meals for their loved ones. They do not mind at all, as long as their loved ones are happily eating the nice warm food after a long day out…. but having said that, it would be grateful, if there are more healthy yet instantly ready food products available in the market cater to these groups of people to make their cooking less hassle, I guess more individuals will not hesitate to cook at home, just like me. I changed my job from nearby my house to the CBD area, I have to spend 2 hours more in commuting to and back from work every day. Cooking dinner on daily basis has become a chore, in that sense. However, I never thought of giving up, but strive to find more ways to make my cooking easier and convenient. And, I have added these bottled mushrooms to my ‘convenient food list’ recently. Through an email introduction as well as the sample tasting of these mushroom offered by the marketing team of Yifon, I was able to experience the greatness in these healthy and convenient bottled mushrooms. They did not set any conditions on promoting these products, but on my own accord, I thought why not just share my tasting experience with my readers here since it is genuinely a product that worth trying, in my opinion. Anyway, I used it in my recipe.

The first dish I cooked using one of the mushrooms was a simple one, the Stir-fried cabbage with Teatree mushrooms. I was contemplating between the Teatree mushrooms or Golden Needle mushrooms, initially, and decided to go with Teatree mushrooms for a change since Golden Needle mushrooms have already been commonly used in vegetable dishes. Moreover, the Golden Needle is spicy flavored and spicy vegetable dish wasn’t my desire at that point of consideration. Otherwise, the Spicy Golden Needle or Spicy Nameko mushrooms would have been a good choice. Well, I knew I have made a great choice. Indeed, the Teatree mushrooms complement well with the cabbage stir fry, and its supplementary flavour did not fail to elevate the taste of my cabbage cooking. Actually, this was not the first cabbage dish I have cooked with mushrooms. In my previous Stir-fried Cabbage recipe, I used Shiitake mushrooms. However, without these flavoured mushrooms, I have to season the dish with more condiments. In another word, I do not have to remember to add many seasoning in my cooking now to make my cabbage dish taste wonderful. More
