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 […]

Eggplant Stir-Fry

I had this dish during my last trip to Cameron and had bought most of the vegetables from there too. At first I thought it an odd combination to have cherry tomatoes and eggplant together but they actually kind of work and taste great. So I when I got home I tried to recreate it […]

Chicken Soup with Old Cucumber

Let me confess, I have a small repertoire when it comes to Asian soups, not the spicy ones like Tom Yam and all but more those for family with small kids ones. My hubster and kids love soups. Like love, love. Me…I can live without them. But for the others, if I have to make […]

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 […]

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 […]

Vege Lasagna Bake

Sometimes I have this tendency to buy certain ingredients that were not on my shopping list originally and decide what I’ll do with them later. Sometimes it turns out to be a good thing, sometimes it backfire on me, leaving me with an overloaded pantry of odds and ends. But I recently got myself a […]

Alla Norma Bake – Repost

Yesterday marks the end of Chinese New Year, so it’s almost back to the normal flow of meals. Starting with something less Asian. 🙂 I think pasta bake dishes are one of those forgiving dishes or more like, you can just bake anything with it and it will turn out edible. It is very homey, […]
