Citrus Upside Down Cake


I was at the store last weekend and saw citruses of various shades and sizes filling the bins. There is my favorite Cara Cara Oranges, Grapefruits, Pomelos, Blood Oranges, and of course the more common Navel Oranges. My brain was baking up an image of a colorful cake with slices of these different types of citrus. I substituted the pineapples Read More

Char Kuay Teow


Updated Feb 28th 2022 Just came back from Singapore. It was an awesome trip to see family & friends and tried many items on my MUST EAT list. One of the few regrets is that I only got to try Char Kway Teow once during this trip. The first time I saw a Char Kway Teow stall was in Boleh Read More

Soy Sauce Chicken Noodle (油鸡麺)


I spent a lot of my childhood in Chinatown. My sister and I usually hang out at my Dad’s shop house. Sometimes we go next door and read in the World Bookstore (世界书局). Other times, we roam the alleys of Chinatown and checkout the street vendors. When it’s time for food, there are so many options to choose from. More Read More

Creamy Garlic Tuscan Chicken and Salmon


Finally, the long awaited do-nothing vacation has arrived. Unlike Thanksgiving, I decided I am not going to spend the holidays in the kitchen. I will cook a couple of simple meals at home and the rest of the time, we’ll just order food or eat at the restaurants. I am feeling festive and craving salmon. Cooking salmon alone wouldn’t cut Read More

Teriyaki Chicken


Recipe #2 that I am trying from the True Food cookbook. I didn’t know that I could make teriyaki sauce out of fruits!

I bought brown rice medley from Trader Joes and cooked Read More

Almond Fruit Tartlet


Something is nagging at me the last few nights since I made those Rustic Almond and Fruit Galettes. I really wanted to feature those beautiful fresh fruits more prominently than having them hidden under the ‘rustic’ crust. This weekend, I made another batch of flaky tart dough from my favorite Tartine cookbook and set off to give these fresh fruits Read More

Chinese Rojak (Salad in Shrimp Paste Dressing)


Updated: June 26th, 2021 Updated pictures and added green mango to the ingredients. Tastes delicious as always as long as you have Chinese crullers as the anchor. With all these bright and juicy fruits in the mix, the cucumbers are tasting a little flat. Next time, I will consider adding fresh lychee and guava.

Vegetarian Delight


Ashley was home last weekend. Now that she is working in Seattle, I can only see her a couple of times a year. I decided that I should cook a meal and also send her home with some frozen home-cooked food. We were worried that the food would be confiscated at the airport. Thankfully, she reported that she arrived in Read More
