Golden Egg Tofu with Minced Meat

“Simple healthy dish, delicious homecooked taste, and likeable by most children!”

A variation of hot plate egg tofu dish. I do not have an iron plate at home, and hence, I used stir-frying method to prepare the dish (maybe I should just try heating up a fire-resistant metal plate to serve this dish next time).

Without extensive ingredients, such as, crab meat sticks, prawns and mushroom shreds, and lack of sizzling effect, this simply an egg tofu homemade dish, with just the minced meat added (these were what I had in my refrigerator the other day… :D). Simple homemade dish, but likeable by most children! More

A1 Curry Chicken (Express Recipe)

“Impress your guests with this quick and easy curry chicken and egg goodies during your open house or friends’ visit!”

Curry chicken is a common spicy Indian cuisine across Asia countries. Asian loves spicy food, and Singaporean is always so fascinated by this fabulous curry dish. We have our own version of curry chicken, whereby its gravy is more ‘watery’. Indeed, we like to drench the bread, especially french loaf, into curry sauce, eating the loaf with curry dipping as a meal just by its own. Having more gravy in the curry chicken dish, we can even pour the curry sauce onto a plate of fried bee hoon (rice noodles) or fried rice to complement the dryness of the fried bee hoon/ rice.

Well, there isn’t any ‘must‘ to load your curry dish with sauce. I did cook the dry curry (chicken) dishes, too! It’s all up to you! More

Baked Sausage & Ham Scramble Quiche with Potato Base

“It’s a perfect simple dinner, the wholesome and smart-eating meal, for working couple and small family.”

EAT the soup in the quiche.. Sounds special huh? It’s not only about eating the quiche, you’ll get to enjoy the soup, not separately, but in the same food! Yes, cream of mushroom soup was added into this wholesome and delish baked scramble casserole. Most of all, this is so simple and quick to make!

A satisfying and filling 1-dish western meal adapted from a recipe featured in a lifestyle magazine, I baked this dish this evening (it’s Monday!) as dinner. Yes, it’s Monday blue. Thinking that it’s still a long week to go, I was too ‘tired’ (or lazy) to fix rice-with-dishes dinner meal (laughing). More

Braised Pork Knuckles with Dried Chillies in Claypot (横财就手之辣椒干卤猪手)

“Believe me, it’s the best homemade braised pork meat I have ever tried!”

This recipe was originally featured in a popular magazine. When I was flipping through the magazine, the food picture of this recipe shown on the magazine attracted me for a second look. I decided to give it a try as most of the ingredients used in this recipe were what I already had at home, or easily get it from supermarkets/ grocery shops.

Seriously, it was very delicious! I was so proud of myself for giving it a try. This recipe does not yield traditional briny-tasted braised meat with five-spice flavour. It was a hot spicy pork dish with a hint of sweet plum taste. More

Super Moist Stir-Fried Egg Prawns

“This is no ordinary fried eggs and prawns dish. This is a scrumptious stir-fried tendery prawns dish, complemented with juicy eggs! Simple, yet, special.”

This dish was ‘created’ by my friend’s friend who shared the recipe with me later on, some time back. But the original recipe was slight adapted from use of shell prawns to shelled ones, for convenience sake (laughing). Also, added with butter instead of using normal cooking oil as I find it more fragrant with butter cooking.

The prawns were tender, juicy and springy. The eggs in this prawn dish corresponded well with its 80% doneness. Simple, and yet, delicious dish. Ingredients and condiments used in the dish are not anything extra ordinary, it’s the cooking time that execute the dish well. Yes, both prawns and eggs can’t be over-cooked, to retain its taste of tenderness and moisture. More

Non-Spicy Szechuan Soup (豆腐羮)


“It’s a non-spicy version of Szechuan ‘hot’ & sour soup for the children. It’s not hot.”

Szechuan Hot & Sour Soup, a tasty and fulfilling soup dish, likable by all of us. I thought I should cook without the chilli this time. The cooking method was almost the same, just differed by the addition of heat. My family liked both the spicy and non spicy versions.

Layer Cake (千层糕)

” Thousand Layer Cake which you can even make at home”

Layer cake is an expensive cake to purchase at bakery, especially at those renowned bakeries such as bengawan solo and etc. The layer-cake costs about $18 to $45. Actually the high price of this layer cake, not just for its taste, but also the effort of making such cake. It’s time consuming as it’s baked layer by layer.

I got the recipe from a magazine, and tried it! More

Omelette with Chopped Onion

“Omelette – the best dish that complements your plain porridge meal”

Onion, may seems to taste ‘awful’ to many people, especially to kids. Raw onion has pungent taste and smell to many of us. I don’t quite like to eat raw onion unless I can eat it with satay sauce (laughing). However, cooked onion is totally different spectrum here. Cooked onion, not just without its natural pungency, it tastes so pleasant with its natural sweetness. Cooked onion is soft, and very nice to eat. Since it is sweet, it should be kid-friendly dish. Children hate onion, but love sweet food. Cooked onion in omelette ill be the BEST way to make them eat some onion!

I love prata with onion, so as Omelette with Onion (chuckling)! More
