Pumpkin Crisps : Failure!

How many of you are baking goodies for Chinese New Year? I just started and my first attempt at making pumpkin crisps was a big FAIL. Gah!

No No No Don't! : Ngaku Chips (Arrowhead Chips)

Every year since my sweaty endeavor back in 2013, I told myself that I won't bother making ngaku chips because ......... it is tedious peeling them, it is even more tedious slicing them (madolin notwithstanding), it is most tedious frying them ............. and this thing goes straight to my waist, hips and thighs.

Tar Chee's Garlic Peanuts

One of the Chinese New Year snacks that I remember from my childhood is Tar Chee's fried garlic peanuts. Tar Chee was my mum's cousin who sadly passed away some years ago.

My First Taste of Wild Boar Curry

Ever since my partner refused to go back to Goodness Greens, we have returned to Restoran Yik Kee@TTDI. My partner prefers this type of food, rice with dishes rather than my keto, quinoa, salada and funny funny stuff.

Strawberry, Watercress and Siew Yoke Salad

After going crazy over kale, I have now found another new ingredient to grace my salads - watercress. I have read about watercress being used in salsa verde and salads and my immediate thought was the watercress that we use to cook pork rib soup. Alamak how to eat that in a salad?

Dragon Fruit Jelly

Who likes dragon fruit? Quite frankly I am not a fan. Why? Because it doesn't taste like much. It has a peculiar flavor, is barely sweet and the only thing appealing about it is the stunning ruby red color.

What My Auntie Eats in Hobbit Land

Every now and then my auntie spams me from Hobbit Land with photos of the food she eats/cooks. I like hearing from her and when the food is interesting I ask her for the recipe.

Blueberry Cheesecake in Jars

Among the many desserts one may find on the menu or buffet table, my weakness is cheesecake. I am a never-say-no-to-cheesecake person.

Raisin Carrot Cake

This recipe comes from Amy Beh and was bookmarked for many years hah..hah... That's me. I bookmark, print and hoard a load of recipes and then never do anything about it. Tsk!

Crack Pork@Damansara Uptown (CLOSED)

One day I got a message from my partner asking me if I noticed a newly opened restaurant located at what used to be a foot reflexology center.

Kale and Strawberry Salad

The other weekend at Aeon, I saw boxes of Korean strawberries. They looked very fresh and beautiful. So I picked up a box even though I had no idea what I was going to do with them.

Sauteed Garlic Salad Dressing

Please excuse me for the photo of my messy looking (almost empty) salad dressing jar. It was only after I had dressed my salad that I remembered to take a photo of the dressing.

Arrrgghhhh!!!!! I want curry mee!!!! So in spite of swearing that I would follow through with the keto diet, I caved in, my resolve crumbling in a heap.

Buttermilk Chocolate Orange Cake : What My Food Critic Had to Say

This grimy looking cake came about due to two things. (1) An expired carton of buttermilk (expiry 25-12-2018) and (2) an expired bar of dark chocolate (expiry August 2018).

Pasta and Vegetable Salad

I love sneaking carbs into my salads. Somehow, carbs just taste so good. So comforting. So nurturing.

Agar Agar Santan Pandan (Pandan Coconut Milk Jelly)

I refused to give up after my failed jelly making attempt. I tried again and this time I was not disappointed.

Peanut Butter Banana Cake : No More Headache

This is a cake that challenged me way back in 2015 which resulted in 3 attempts. In the first attempt, the cake collapsed in a heap which was motivation for a second and third attempt which yielded much better results.

Cincai Char Also Nice

There was once when my late grandma was taken to dine at a newly opened restaurant in Kuala Terengganu. The food apparently was not to grandma's standards.
