Linguine with Flower Crab

“An elegant, low fat seafood pasta dish, for light and quick mid-week dinner, that whets your appetite!”

Since the first time I had this similar type of wonderful homecooked pasta dish, I was in love with its perfect flavorful taste.

Hence, with the similar cooking method, I have made several adaptions to it, with slight changes in condiments used, and various side ingredients to go along with it each time, when I felt like having this pasta again.

Previously, we had the claims and prawns, or added with diced chicken fillet version… With both spaghetti and linguine pasta noodle in respective cookings, I had the flower crab version this time (also slight change in recipe)!

Golden Flapjack Oat Bar Recipe

“Low in fat and sugar, high in crunch factor and flavour. Make your own flapjack aka baked oat bar easily at home, for a relatively healthy tea time, anytime. “

Flapjack, is a sweet baked bar mainly made from rolled oats, brown sugar and golden syrup in British cuisine. Some added with nuts, raisins or dried fruits. I made the most basic flapjacks, with reduced fat and sugar amount, for a more healthy version.

The taste of my flapjack reminds me of the popcorn we ate in the movie, when I first tasted it. It was so crispy to munch, leaving with hint of buttery aroma in the palate. The flapjack was to be made as an alternative to those high fat, high sugar or high calories cookies. Bake this in bars, for my breakfast, or in squares, as the bite-size snacks and munches during tea time.

Moonlight Treasure Box (月光宝盒)

“Easy Making Mouth-Watering Steamed Minced Pork Cube with Dong Cai and Salted Egg Scopes”

This dish is similar to my previous steamed minced pork with salted eggs recipe, but this one tastes fuller than the other due to the addition of Tianjin preserved vegetables (aka ‘Dong Cai’ 冬菜) in it. And, I think this looks better in terms of presentation as I tried making it to resemble the mini treasure boxes on the plate. It is great to cook this during Chinese festive like Mooncake festival, Dumpling festival and even Chinese Chap Go Mei (Lunar Fifteenth Day of CNY), to make it a symbolical festive dish with the name of the recipe I have it here.

Pork Saigon

“Try this recipe which I’ve learned from cooking demo in Bali. And I’ll show you the perfect way to prevent heating butter on stove”

It has been more than a week from my last post. I apologise with no further excuse (busy at work really~).

This dish was learned during my last holiday to Bali. One of the activities from the resort was cooking demonstration. And this was the dish they showed. Actually, they cooked this with beef, but due to personal diet restriction, I used pork slices instead.

Homemade Lemon Fish

“Delicious lemon fish cooked from scratch, with my homemade lemon sauce.”

Suddenly had this craving for sweet and sourish flavoured dish for dinner. I missed lemon fish, but find that the lemon fish from outside stores was tasted too sweet. So, I yearned to cook my own lemon fish! To curb my craving for it. A very satisfying one, I had it, for my family who loved this dish as well.

Lemon fish is an adaption of the popular Asian style lemon chicken. Cooking lemon fish dish is not a difficult chore. We can always get instant lemon sauce packets off the shelves, but it won’t really save your bucks by using these pre packs.
