Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Sauce

It's Apples galore on Little Thumbs Up this month. What do apples remind you of besides keeping the good doctor away?

Chocolate Banana Cake

After baking Chocolate Orange Ring Cake, I decided to try another recipe from the book Easy Chocolate.

There's always something so irresistible about roasted, grilled or barbecued chicken. Or is it just me?

Mummy's Easy Meat, Carrots and Potatoes

My partner referred to this dish as Babi Pongteh. In fact any porky dish I cook, he calls it Babi Pongteh. Haiyah, this fellow ah...
