Butter Fried Rice with Pan-Seared Salmon

This dish is inspired by the rice. We went to our favourite western food restaurant and they have this dish which was simply called butter rice. Now I had many butter rice in my time but their’s was definitely different. When the dish came to our table, it looked sorta….tacky (for lack of a better […]

Pork Shogayaki and Donburi

I’m just itching to make a lot of Japanese dishes lately, partly to blame were the animes I watched on home cooking. There is not really a plot twist in here and true to anime style, the scenes are always exaggerated and dramatic but the anime really have it down when it comes to making […]

Italian Sausage Soup

I have sort of a love hate relationship with soups that have pasta in it. To me, once you add pasta to a soup it becomes more of a stew because the starch would thicken the broth and suck up all the liquid. I like more liquids than chunks of ingredients. But this soup, I […]

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 […]

Ayam Percik

In the spirit of Ramadhan, I thought I’d do some local dishes popular during this time. I must confess, I have never had ayam percik before so when I planned to do this dish, I would have no palate reference to say. But trusting my fellow bloggers who are more experienced, I took it on […]

Kimchi Chicken Stir-Fry

I actually got inspired to make this dish from a version of a kimchi soup I’ve always been making. This is not dakgalbi if one were to argue it’s origin….just some chicken stir-fried with kimchi. It is a quick dish to go with plain rice for those days you don’t wish to spend time in […]

Quick Chicken Curry

Now, I first want to clarify that this is a homemade curry but I’m taking the instant route by using a pre-mixed curry powder. At first I wanted to title this post as ‘Homemade Chicken Curry’ but I know that some purists out there would argue that with homemade curry, you have to grind your […]

Baked Pasta with Spinach

  Initially I had not intended to ever blog about this dish….ever! Cos for one, it’s not the most attractive looking dish, and secondly it’s all just put together from scraps here and there that I found in the fridge and was trying to come up with some other baked dishes to do rather than […]

Baked Penne and Meatballs

This is one of those big, one-dish family meals that I whipped up with my ever ready stock of homemade marinara sauce. I would always make a big batch of this sauce and just store it in the fridge. It’s good for a quick pasta dish, for lasagna, for my family’s favourite chicken parma, for […]

Egg, Mushroom, Leek Pot

I saw this recipe in a video by Gary Rhodes. While I do not spend all that much money on recipe books (although once in a a while when BBW comes around, there is a definite splurge), I think I can confidently call myself, a cooking-show junkie instead. I just watch all kinds of shows […]
