Braised Pork and Potatoes – Mum’s Style

When my mum made this, she did not have a specific name…so we kids called it ‘ho chiak bak’ which means ‘delicious meat’. The one thing which is a must for us with this dish are the hard boiled eggs. Pour the lush, thick gravy over the eggs and eat it with white rice, that […]

Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Frosting

My little girl turned two recently. Do you know that making specialty cakes are not my specialty? And while I like to have more practise, I usually just do two cakes a year for my kids’ birthdays. But some practise is still better than no practise right? My hubster is quite picky with cakes. While […]

Apple Cake

I have been searching for a good apple cake recipe that doesn’t involve having to grate the apples or slice it into pretty thins and laying it out in a circle. Not that there’s anything wrong with such aesthetic but when you crave for some cake of some sort for tea, you want to skip […]

Double Chocolate Muffins

The need to make these muffins basically stemmed from my son who seems to always ask for those RM1 chocolate muffins sold at Aeon. It’s either donuts of muffins. Now I don’t know how to make donuts….yet, but what does that say about me if I can’t even knock up a decent batch of chocolate […]

Pork Belly Braised in Soy Sauce (Tau Eu Bak)

Initially when I first heard of this dish, I thought to myself, well….sounds rather salty. But I guess it’s not so much the salty type of soy sauce but the dark one that gives it the colour and enhances the braising liquid because dark soy sauce is not as salty as the light one. I’m […]

Roti Jala

I love roti jala. I love the process of making it as much as I like eating it. When I was still in Kuching, I have never even heard of such a thing to go with curries. I was living in my little shell thinking that there is only roti or rice to go with […]

AFF Thailand – Sankaya (Thai Pumpkin Coconut Custard)

While we know Thai food to have its punchy, bold flavours…I must admit I know little about its sweets and desserts. I’ve heard of the sticky rice and mango and the dessert with the red rubies but that’s about it. I just so happen to stumble upon this pumpkin custard dessert and thought it would […]

AFF Japan – Korokke (Potato and Meat Croquettes)

Hello, hello readers…I know I have been MIA lately, actually for the whole month of September probably, haha. I’m doing a few things at the same time…J-man has been settling down steadily in his new school and I’m happy for that but that also means the dreaded word ‘HOMEWORK’! Mostly Mandarin homework which I have […]

Plain Vanilla Pound Cake

I have mentioned many times before that my son is an avid lover of cakes, (he definitely got that from me and not his dad, haha) so every now and then he would ask me in his straightforward manner, ‘Mummy, I want cake please….’ and I would give in every time. Usually when I want […]

Fluffy Banana Pancakes

Have I mentioned how much I love pancakes?? I LOVE PANCAKES! In all sorts of ways I can have them. If I am extra motivated, I would make a batch for tea and indulge. There is nothing better than a plate of pancakes, a cup of hot beverage and a sit-down with your favourite cookbook. […]
