Papaya Snow Fungus Sweet Soup with Black Sugar (木瓜雪耳黑糖水)

“Come, learn the correct method, follow the actual steps, to cook this nourishing papaya snow fungus sweet soup in my recipe.”

Just realized that I did not have my papaya snow fungus sweet soup recorded. I thought I did, but apparently only having the savory version as well as the adaption with winter melon. Well, this was a great time to showcase it as I boiled this nourishing goodness with Okinawa black sugar instead of rock sugar. It turned out to be even tastier and smoother mouthfeel. For sure, black sugar is healthier version of sugar than other kinds of sugar, especially for women, as it provides nutrients such as Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Plus, this sweet soup helps in nourishing the lungs as well as skin complexion. What’s more can I ask for?! :D

The black sugar “kakutou” I used was brought back from Okinawa by my sister. However, not to worry, you will still be able to get Okinawa black sugar or any other brands in Singapore’s supermarkets. I mixed Taikoo brand which I’ve gotten from NTUC Fairprice (Finest). In any case, rock sugar will do the job, too. :) More

Avocado Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese

“Simple and delicious avocado cake for a healthy afternoon.”

Avocado is definitely a superfood for all ages due to its high nutritional value. However, not everyone would accept its creamy texture and taste. I personally loved it so much that I would eat it whenever I could, but it wasn’t the case for my children. In order to make them eat, the taste of the avocado mustn’t be present in their palate. If you, too, encounter hard time getting your young ones (and even the big ones) to eat avocado, here I have a great & simple solution for you. Here you go, having the superfood disguised in my little sweet treat. Who says this is not one of the best ways for treats & “tricks”.. :D

Durian Cake with Banana Streusel in Glass

“Scrumptious durian dessert recipe, now comes with a professional video cookbook, by and on foodforlifetv.com”

The media news and durian experts speculated that MSW (Musang King) durians would drop its price this August. So, I thought it’s the best time (again) to eat the king of fruits, durian. To me, it’s more that just eating this creamy fruit, incorporate yummy durian into your homemade dessert and baked goodness would be an excellent idea, too!

The super aromatic and crunchy banana crumbs as the topping is something you wouldn’t want to miss. Make sure you have it to compliment this durian cake in glass well. More

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.


This stick rice with mango wasn’t too difficult to assemble. In fact, the cooking was pretty versatile. You may steam the glutinous rice with any steamware you have in your kitchen as long as getting the sticky rice cooked to the right texture you liked (usually done in 20-25 minutes). If my recipe for the coconut sauce isn’t what you prefer, no fret, too. For one who likes the saltish flavour to be more visible in the coconut sauce, add bigger pinch of salt. If you have sweet-tooth, increase sugar, instead. Otherwise, use just the coconut milk without any addition of condiment. What you need is to taste while cooking to find your perfect flavor. No hard and fast rule. Keep trying, keep cooking. Enjoy! More

Baked (Pull-Apart) Orange French Toast

“In between orange French toast and banana bread pudding, to be served with loads of fruit toppings.”

I admit I wasn’t that creative in cooking at times. As this blog of MY was meant to be a record of my home cooking so as to pass down the recipes in a digital way to my next gen in future. I thought of just as well sharing it with all people who loved cooking, or would like to start cooking with some easy-to-follow recipes and scrumptious enough dishes. Thus, the sharing.

Like I mentioned before, some of the dishes were adapted from recipes by other great cooks. What I usually did is to vary and simplify these nice recipes to suit my simple cooking style.. There were also those popular dine-out dishes and delicacies which we loved to eat so much, but to make sure what exactly went into the dishes, I turned them into my very own homecooked, in a healthier way and less sinful elements in it.
