Vegetarian Bee Hoon (斋米粉)


Whenever I visit the Tiong Bahru Market in Singapore for breakfast, I always have a hard time deciding what to eat. There are so many delicious options. I often ended up choosing the vegetarian bee hoon as it is not something I can create easily at home, especially the meat look -alike toppings. Last weekend, as I was flipping through Read More

Vietnamese Noodle Bowl with Grilled Lemon Grass Chicken


Finally, after three quarters of  ‘catering’ food for the girls, EK actually made a real contribution this week. He grilled the chicken! And he was very proud that the chicken was grilled to perfection. Seriously, I wouldn’t have survived three quarters of mass cooking every weekend without him manning the cleaning department. The proof is in all the utensils that Read More

Basil Eggplant


I never liked eggplants until I discovered this Basil Eggplant recipe. Basil adds so much flavor to dishes, it is my favorite herb in the kitchen. Use Chinese eggplants and do not peel the skin; the purple skin is the most nutritious part of eggplants. I added the colored bell peppers, and this turned out to be a very colorful Read More

Hong Kong Fried Noodles (港式炒面)

After preparing a number of other dishes for our CNY dinner, I wanted a ‘longevity’ dish to round out the menu. It must be simple, not too oily. I chose Hong Kong Fried Noodles this time. It is very easy to Read More

Buddha’s Delight – Luo Han Zhai (罗汉斋)


What is another good CNY vegetarian dish to cook besides my favorite Braised Mushrooms with Fatt Choy? 罗汉斋 came to mind but  it requires me to assemble 18 different vegetables/vegetarian ingredients! I made a list and was able to find about half of them in the kitchen. After a whirlwind trip to the grocery store, all my ingredients are in Read More

Chicken Mushroom Alfredo Baked Rice


I was all flustered from cooking a mushroom risotto dish by the time I sat down at the dinner table at a Christmas get-together. The mushroom risotto didn’t turned out as I had expected and took way too long to prepare. Then I saw a similar dish brought by Hsiao Ting’s brother-in-law Johnson. I took a bite and wow! It Read More
