Grilled Mixed Herbs Salmon & Tomatoes (Air-Fried)

Crisped and browned on the surface, but tender and moist inside. That’s how my grilled Salmon was. I usually cooked this way when I wanted to have pasta or noodles in sauce, or rice with other saucy dishes.

I wouldn’t serve as it is as a main course, if I did not make a sauce to go along, even though it wasn’t dried at all. I just thought it would be a bit plain.. unless to make some wet sides eg baked beans, gravies baby corns, mashed potato with sauce, etc. Salsa or cheesy spinach might be good, too. Those would do.. Alright, I should do the Western main course style the next time. :)

Easy Orange Butter Cake

“Soft, fluffy and aromatic butter cake, with my super easy to follow recipe.”

Suddenly felt like eating an orange cake.. No frill, simply got some fresh oranges from NTUC Fairprice to bake myself an aromatic and scrumptious orange cake. Very simple to bake, and it’s definitely a worth-trying recipe, with the freshest and simplest ingredients.

Look how fluffy and moist the orange was. Both my children loved it, especially my toddler boy who wasn’t really a cake lover, yet, he asked for a second serving right after the first.

Mac & Cheese (Tomato) for Toddler

“Mac & Cheese with a small twist to suit my son’s palate.”

As my son loved pasta in tomato base, I thought he would like his Mac & cheese to be with tomato taste, too. Not that he doesn’t take cream based, I just wanted to try out, hoping to make his meal the most pleasant one each time, if possible.

This version of my toddler meals is slightly more elaborated, and thus, a few more ingredients and steps are needed here. However, it’s still easy to follow. The same recipe could be adopted to adult meal, too, by adding a little salt and stuff. :)

A “Not-So” Valentine’s Bombs (Cheese & Garlic Butter Biscuits)

“Anytime, any day, with these light tasted biscuits, actually.”

With the recipe’s name, you know it was for the day. Oh, sorry.. it’s just butter biscuit, actually. Since today’s Valentine’s Day which coincides with Lunar Renri (Human’s birthday in Chinese), it seemed like a big day that I had to do something.. Simple baking, but I tried to make some of my biscuits into heart shape, just for the sake of the festive. :D

Crispy on the crust, and cottony soft inside. That’s the wonder of using buttermilk in the recipe. To make cottony soft texture of a bake. Yes, that’s the trick.

Seaweed Crisps (Air-Fried)

“One of the easiest air fried CNY snacks”

Yes, I considered this the easiest and relatively healthier snack for the Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, adding on to its healthier cooking method, air frying.

This snack could be made in various ways and flavors. No doubt, those added with seasonings taste better, at the same time, less healthy. I reckoned homemade with minimal (better types of) ingredients. Mine? Moderately good, in term of taste and nutritional value, good enough to let your older toddler to enjoy it. :)
