Fresh Fruits Purées with Avent Steamer cum Blender

“Homemade fresh fruits purée. Why bother to buy jarred , when your baby could eat fresh?”

Hello… I have been using my Avent steamer cum blender slightly over a month. Yes, only posted 1 recipe with the use of the appliance as it seems too simple to cook the fruits (or vegetables) with it. The steps are the same, with just changing of the fruits, veg and combinations. Hence, I have consolidated the fruit purées I have made, to share just in a single post. Simply to give you an idea which fruit items you can cook using this appliance, for your precious little one. read more

Easy Peach Konnyaku Jelly

“Happy Valentine’s Day”

I would be happy for those who received flowers and gifts from your loved ones.

If you haven’t prepared or bought anything in return, I guess there are always places and gifts available for last minutes purchase. However, if you wish to do something handmade, you better start preparing it soon, or do it really quick and simple one, like what I have posted here!

Seriously, nothing fanciful I had for your Valentine’s celebration (In fact, I did not quite remember it until my colleague came to greet me this morning). So well, happened to have this peach jelly dessert made a while ago, and it is nice and I have decided to post it today, just in case one needs a ‘lazy’ idea for the occasion (smile). And best thing is, you are free to turn this smooth & transparent peach jelly into a platform where you could write your love notes or decorate creatively on its smooth surface. read more

Best Homemade Pineapple Fried Rice (菠萝炒饭)

“Pamper your loved ones with this savoury restaurant-standard pineapple fried rice, cooked from scratch, with less than $5 cost… and my homemade recipe!”

I did not post as often lately. First, I was very tired due to my hectic work. I had becoming no mood to explore new dishes/ cooking. My family ate only those of my simple already-hands-on dishes, or worst, take-away food. Sometimes, fast food (and of course, it was something pleasing to the little one.. rolling eyes). Anyway, I do apologise to my fans and readers, if you have been missing my new posts. And, I thank you, if you are still following my blog and FB Fan club, waiting to hear from me (winking smile). read more

Simple Salad and Fruits with Honey Mustard & Thousand Island Dressing for Dinner

“It’s good if we could eat simple.”

Before sharing more on my curry chicken dish, I would like to go healthy first. I had salad for dinner tonight because my detox diet program starts today! :)

I read an article in the Sunday newspaper which talks about 1-week detoxification. It reminds me that it’s also about time for ME to go on some diet plans. Ya, I started my day with a glass of fresh lemon juice water in my empty stomach…Then, here comes my homemade salad with fruits… Oh well, I know I am not supposed to put these kinds of dressing I have added in my salad, but… Give me some allowances, alright?! I couldn’t go on full force just like this. Time to warm up, please (chuckling). read more

Homemade Mango & Strawberry Salsa

“Fruits day, it’s not necessary to be in liquid or paste form. I make fruits into refreshing briny salsa dish.”

I saw a very great Japanese pork chop cutlet from a Japanese variety show in tv, and decided to try it out as it looks really alluring (Show you the recipe next time!).

To make my pork chop meal more balance with both dry and moist dishes, the fruit salsa came to my mind. I had thus craving to make mt own salsa as I find it a great complement to something dry, like pork chop, since it contrasts the taste and texture.. The super refreshing mouthfeel to have a chilled side dish like salsa for piping hot pork chop is also what I was looking for. read more
