Ingredients 4 cups blueberries, rinsed and drained 1/2 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 Tbsp cornstarch Zest of one Read More

Dry Rub Grilled Chicken Wings


EK and I have spent many happy hours at BJ’S sports bar this last NBA season cheering on the Warriors. Few could imagine what crazy Warriors’ fan we have become.

Cheese Platter


A glass of wine, a beautiful cheese platter, and a sunny blue sky makes for an idyllic weekend afternoon by the water. Here is how I like to put my cheese platter together: 1.

Honey Roasted Sriracha Brussels Sprouts


I was first introduced to Brussels sprouts at a gathering with teammates at BJs. They were crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside; spicy, tangy, and sweet.

Chicken Tortilla Soup


I tried chicken tortilla soup at Amardillo Willy’s a couple of weeks back and I was pleasantly surprised how good it is. The soup has a nice blend of spicy and sour taste with melt-in-your mouth tender chicken. It is nicely complemented by the crisp and crunchy tortilla strips. This is probably my first post of a Mexican dish, but Read More

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
