Fresh Fruits Crumble – an absolutely genius recipe to enjoy the heavenly seasonal fruits.
Fresh fruits platter for dessert. That’s what most Chinese community including myself grew up with. Easy, light, sweet and yummy… In my humble opinion, a fresh fruits platter makes a great dessert or snack. But the western community seems to be puzzled with our idea of dessert. “Here you go, cut apples for your dessert”. That wouldn’t go too well to impress your guests, would it? Continue Reading →
Mak Kimchi (Quick Cabbage Kimchi) – the spicy addictive Korean dish that you must absolutely try, with a dose of natural probiotics
After my 1st attempt at making kimchi with bok choy, I kinda become hooked. Actually Norbert loves it more than I do. We’ll eat it with everything from fried rice, noodle soups to pancakes, onigizaru, and, of course, straight out of the jar. This traditional Korean dish creates the healthy bacteria, Lactobacillus (the source of probiotics), during the fermentation process. When we eat fermented foods, it is almost like taking probiotic supplements, except it is delicious and far less expensive.Continue Reading →
Onigizaru or sushi burger makes great packed lunch and also portable snack. Who could resist a sushi burger?
Have you guys heard of onigirazu? When I first saw it on Cindy of Weeknite Meals’ feed, I can’t get this “rice hamburger” out of my mind. My hubby called it ‘sushi burger’. They’re kinda of like onigiri (Japanese rice balls) but more hamburger/sandwich-like and not as finicky. Onigirazu is easier and faster to make than shaping an onigiri by hand. It is made by spreading layers of rice and filling over a sheet of seaweed, folding the seaweed into a square to wrap the contents and cutting it with a knife. You can fill them with anything you want and they make great packed lunch, also a portable snack. Pack them up in a cooler and go on a picnic! Who could resist a sushi burger? Continue Reading →
There is nothing nicer at the end of a long day than a bowl of homemade vegetable soup.
Norbert has been ailing by gout attack these past 3 weeks, which has only started to disappear into the 4th week. During his days working at the university bar, he must have over-drank his lifetime quota of beer (one of the causes for developing gout). Gout is a kind of arthritis, with sudden attack of swelling, burning pain of the joint. His affected toe was hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the bedsheet is intolerable. Gout occurs when urate crystals (formed by high levels of uric acid in the blood) accumulate in your joint, causing the inflammation and intense pain of a gout attack.Continue Reading →

Wing lovers would love this mildly sweet spicy addictively delicious Spicy Baked Chicken Wings. I could happily have the whole dish to myself.
*This post has some ‘gory’ details that might be uncomfortable to some*
My younger sister CH and I both took after our father’s food habit – love of chinese soups, innards, eating sugar cane in our younger days (more like chewing the cane to get the juice), and gnawing on chicken bones. Continue Reading →
