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.”

Chicken chop for this Christmas Eve was a little bit simpler and quicker to cook as I was out to run errand urgently the whole day. Only managed to fix the meal the last minute, I had to whip up our dinner within an hour. And, this is what I had here.

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. More

Low-Carb Cheesy “Toast”

“My toast ain’t bread. It’s low-Carb food. It’s vegetable!”

Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.

You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :) More

Homemade (Pork) Luncheon Meat

“Enjoy the ‘sinful’ comfort food without guilt now”

Often we liked the canned luncheon meat (or you called it lunch meat/ SPAM), for its remarkably delicious taste and crispness after pan-fried, but for many luncheon meat lovers, you know you can’t have it much or too often due to the preservative, high sodium content, flavoring and MSG in it. You won’t like to give it to your children as well. So, how about a homemade one?! Some homemade version where salt content is adjustable, for a preservative and flavoring free luncheon meat you gonna make at home. :)

Appearance-wise, it resembled almost like the ‘real’ thing. You won’t probably tell it right by having just a glance, or so. :) More

Festive Chicken Chop


“Chicken Chop for the festive”

Just realized that I cooked slightly different chicken chop for this Christmas than last year’s. I used a different seasoning. Same MasterFoods seasoning, but am using the All Purpose seasoning and not the Steak seasoning this time. Find this yielding stronger flavor chop. So, go easy on the amount and marinating hours.

So, here you go the updates recipe, and still in time to prepare and cook this for the New Year Eve! More

Pan-Fried Pork Belly in Korean BBQ Sauce


“Cooking a restaurant dish isn’t as complicated as you imagined it was.”

Super easy recipe. Simply get a bottle of Korean BBQ sauce to marinade the meat. This is great for busy working couples who wished they could prepare their dish in a flash.

I use pan-fry method to cook it. However, barbecuing is perfectly fine, especially if you are throwing a barbecue party, use this sauce would make you a different marinade next time. More

Pan-Fried Chicken Wings in Soy Sauce

“The simplest chicken wing dish”

Learnt this from the new TVB cooking series hosted by Maria. It was a pretty good show as I learnt a lot of tips in cooking and selecting better food ingredients.

This is one of the dishes I think is the easiest and simplest to follow. However, it was rather bland in taste for the first time I tried it. More

Sautéed Prawns in Yuzu Sauce (柚子蜜煎大虾)

“Not much an appetite to eat? I have cooked these juicy shrimps with some tantalizing citrus sauce to whet your appetite.”

This recipe I saw in a TVB cooking show (created by a popular HK celebrity) represents an interesting variation on the conventional sweet & sour flavor of the prawn dishes. This recipe incorporates the rich and refreshing marmalade, and good thing is, you probably need not to purposely buy this ingredient for the dish, it might already been seating in your drink pantry all these while… What this recipe add is the Honeyed Yuzu (called it Yuja in Korean) marmalade that uses to make drinks.

Having not much an appetite recently, I was tempted to this out! The inclusion of the citrus injects the right amount of sweet sourish zesty taste to complement the dish’s many savory and aromatic flavours. More

Mini Shrimp Toast

“My creation of shrimp toast, have it like crunchy bread squares, or luxury version of French toast with shrimp paste topping.”

This cute and handy open-face toast is often a hit for snack/ tea time when small and light bites are needed, and minced shrimp is the shortcut tips of the busy day. However, all shrimp toasts are not created equal, mine is tailored to taste homely with regards for your health… less oil, less fry.

Children will love it, if you serve with an addition of salad cream or mayonnaise. It creates kind of refreshing bites together with the soft and moist shrimp paste in the palate. But for me, as a regular diet-watcher, no cream, of course, I sprinkled a touch of Italian herbs and coarsely grounded black pepper when served. More
