Stir Fried 2 Mushrooms (Vegetarian)

“Sometimes, just cook and eat a simple, quick and easy vegetable dish is great.”

Did I tell you that I was on strict vegetarian diet for over a short period of time? It was done with religious purpose. Hence, I ate only pure vegetarian meals, without garlic, onion and spring onion, this time.

This was a dish I liked during these days. Easy and pure. Yes, unlike my previous Assorted Asian mushroom recipe, I did not cook this with garlic and ginger. Also, used only 2 kinds of mushroom in this dish. read more

Stew Mussels In Light Red Wine Sauce

“Light soupy mussel stew, delicious and healthy”

Not many people like mussel, but this shellfish is very nutritious and low in calorie, in fact.

I liked my mussels to be stirred fried with strong chili and spices usually, but this time, I cooked it light in stew. More on a western style, but I considered it a fusion dish instead. I had it with chili Padi as well. Ha.

Anyway, this recipe yields light soupy dish. The overall flavor was subtle that you almost taste the natural flavor of the mussel flesh as though it’s steamed. So, you should eat the mussel together with its flavorful red wine soup sauce. read more

Double-Boiled Red Apple & Mixed Veggie with Cod Fish Bone Soup

“Cook simple and nutritious soup lunch with whatever ingredients left in refrigerator.”

This colorful soup meal was meant for children’s diet. It was cooked spontaneously with whatever ingredients I could find in the refrigerator. When I bought the whole fish tail portion, the fishmonger helped to debone and divide into smaller portions. The fish bones were what left in the nod, and I wouldn’t throw them away, but to add into the soup cooking for its flavor and good fish oil in the soup. Of course, you are welcome to use fish fillet as well. read more

Soy Bean Pudding (“Lao Ban” Beancurd “老伴”豆花)

“Melt in your mouth… Silky smooth goodness..”

Another no-frills dessert which is so popular and delicious.

In fact, this popular dessert is a no-secret recipe which have been commonly known and made by many people. Probably you are one of them who already making it at home regularly. :)

To be franked, however, it wasn’t 100% successful the first time I made this as it turned out too runny. Edible, but it took much longer time to set and I had to place them in the freezer for a while. Yet, the pudding still seemed a little bit too wet.. But, this time, it was perfect. read more

Banana Vinegar (香蕉醋)

“Good sharing on dieting ideas”

Talking about dieting…. The vinegar dieting is back on demand! Heating up again gradually…. I am one of the followers on this diet. One of my dieting methods, now.

I don’t think there are much scientific proof, besides having concrete findings that vinegar helps in body cleansing and detoxification (or similar effect). However, it does not equal to sure-successful weight lose effect. Only many (too many) hear-say that it helps a lot in slimming down, especially after the testimonial from one of the Japanese celebrity who lost 8kg in a month, many years ago. This vinegar diet has, then, become so popular and believing. read more
