Cupcakes & Spaghetti Vongole

 I just had the urge to bake on Monday, so I did!  I cheated and just bought a pre-mix though. Haha…I baked lemon cupcakes with a simple icing.  It was delish! I’m not a cake person so one is enough for me. 🙂 So satisfying to bake perfect cupcakes without having to measure the flour...

Quick ‘claypot’

In case you were wondering, yes, I do cook Asian food.  😛  Above is my healthy take on claypot rice.  Verdict – too healthy.  Haha…there’s something about claypot rice where the oil (lard at most times) just sings to your tastebuds.  Anyway, my claypot rice is a simple one-pot affair of rice, dark soy sauce,...

Meat & Potatoes

Yup, I can be a meat and potatoes kinda girl too.  Now, I got lazy this time round and decided to just roast everything in the oven.  Note to self – beef tastes good only when it’s grilled or pan seared.  My beef was cooked perfectly medium but…the flavours aren’t sealed in.  Hence, grill or...

Pan Seared Tuna with Spaghetti

Yet another day in chef mode!  This time round, it’s pan-seared tuna with spaghetti done primavera style.  If you notice, I pan-seared the tuna such that it’s still pink in the middle.  That’s how I like my tuna…and not the crap that comes in cans. While I was chopping up my garlic, bacon and french...

Stir fried Prawns, Broccoli and Cherry Tomatoes

I Love Breakfast

It’s the most important meal in the day and it’s the one meal where I feel is simple but yet oh so satisfying when you eat something nice and hot.  I’m obviously not talking about cereals and fruits.  With any of my cravings, I just have to satisfy them and I’m fussy about 2 things...

First Successful Attempt at Poached Egg

I’ve been craving poached egg with hollandaise sauce for ages and since I’m on medical leave this whole week, I decided to try my hand at it!  Tada…my first successful attempt!  It came out perfect! Burst the yolk and it came out runny. Yum!  I topped it off with a bit of black pepper and...

Poached Salmon with Rice

I cooked dinner – poached Salmon with carrots and shitake mushrooms.  First off, yes I did bother to plate it nicely just because I was in the mood to do so.  I felt that the salmon came out very well although my parents were so blase. Dad: Should have potatoes.Mum: What did you put inside?...

Strawberry Shortcakes

I made strawberry shortcakes on Thursday night simply because I felt like eating them. The strawberry shortcakes that I made are the traditional type, meaning that it is made with shortbread and not sponge cake, which is what you get in most (if not all) cake stores in Singapore. Brought this to work and it...

Mel’s white chocolate ice cream

I finally made something from my wonderful dessert recipe book! On Tues evening, I made white chocolate ice-cream!! That’s the pic of the ice-cream and I topped it off with a drizzle of Kahlua. I put too much white chocolate as I was being greedy and it turned out a little too sweet but otherwise,...
