My Favourite Salad Dressing

Pin It

Very often, usually on Mondays and Tuesdays especially after a weekend of eating out, I will make a big bowl of salad for hubby and myself for lunch.

Claypot Chicken Rice with Mushrooms and Fresh Herbs Dipping Sauce

Pin It

This one-pot-all chicken and mushroom claypot rice is always a hit in my family.  It is tasty, filling, and very easy to make.   Cook it all at one go in the rice cooker, and it is truly a fuss free family meal.

Pin It

Sometime late last year, Mandarin Oriental Hotel KL organised a photography contest for their revamped, all-day dining restaurant called Mosaic.  I submitted four photos and were delighted to find out that three had won me some dining vouchers.

Food Review : Restoran Goon Wah, Kuchai Lama

Pin It

To those foodies who are familiar with the KL food circuit, Restoran Goon Wah would need no introduction.  But for a PJ girl like me, whose furthest self drive adventure to the vicinity of KL stretches only as far as Mid Valley, the name Kuchai Lama is like "err yea, heard of it, but doesn't have the faintest idea how to get there".  So long as someone else drives, I'm game!

Mother's Day 2013

Pin It

Happy Belated Mother's Day to my fellow ladies bloggers and readers. 

I had a enjoyable Mother's Day this year.  A few weeks ago I told hubby I would like to do something different for Mother's Day, like a weekend getaway to someplace out of KL but not too far away.

Durian Mini Muffins - Bake Along's 2nd Anniversary

Pin It

We had a small tub of durians left, so i decided to make a cake with it.  I had originally wanted to make this Durian Yogurt Cake, but realised I didn't have yogurt and enough eggs.  Too lazy to run out to the minimart nearby, so I googled around abit and found this easy muffin recipe.

Ayam Masak Lemak Cili Api, Negeri Sembilan style

Pin It

My Ayam Masak Lemak actually has no cili api (bird's eye chili) because firstly, I am not good with spicy foods, secondly hubby has just recovered from a bout of diarrhea and fever so nothing too stomach-churning for him; and thirdly I wanted my son to have a try.

Peking Style Jing Dou Spare Ribs

Pin It

Apparently this dish is a must-have during the Chinese New Year meals, but I don't remember ever seeing this dish in our family CNY dinners :P  I read in some Chinese cookbooks that this dish is considered auspicious.
