Kueh Bengka Ubi (Baked Tapioca Cake)


Jun 7th 2020 First published Dec 27th 2014 I attended my nephew’s holiday potluck party last weekend: “bring whatever food you wish to eat and share…home cooked Singapore food encouraged.” I like so many dishes from Singapore, which one should I bring?

Smoked Salmon Crostini


I have been relying on the Bruschetta recipe for years when an Italian appetizer is needed on the menu. Great recipe, except it is quite stressful to make sure it is served hot whenever we entertain.
