Simple Rosemary Cajun Chicken Chop with Mashed Kudzu Root

“It’s our ritual to cook this chicken chop for Christmas, I would still add a twist to my already-good recipe.”

It was real quick and simple to cook this chicken chop, all I had to do was to get all the ingredients from supermarket first. Making mashed Kudzu root was my first attempt to create something new in place of potato.

Light Papaya Soup

“It’s one of the best soups for health & diet watchers. Also great for all ages!”

All the ingredients used in this soup recipe were truly nutritious. Packed with high content of nutrients, and they were delicious to taste, too.

Some nutritional facts:
Papaya, a fruit that contains not only high amount of antioxidant, but also an enzyme (papain) which helps digest protein. Snow fungus, nourishes your lungs and skin. Black-eyed beans as a kind of legumes. I did not need to highlight the rest of the familiar ingredients. Best thing, this super delicious soup was so flavourful with its natural sweetness from the papaya, we don’t need much of the seasoning here. A pinch of salt would be the limit to it.

Homemade Satay and Peanut Sauce Recipe

“Simple ingredients, for a good enough hawker treat at home.”

Satay, barbecued chicken on-stick, is one of the famous Singapore/ Malaysia hawker food that everybody loves!

I have always wanted to cook satay at home, but the extended peeling & chopping, blending and long simmering preparation put me off. Only until today, my satays are finally served on the dining table. We loved satay, but I was a little skeptical to eat too much of the store-bought. Papa pressed me to make some of my own instead.
