Stuffed Cucumber Kimchi

Unlike fermented kimchi, this fresh version can be served immediately, no waiting required. Garlicky, spicy and crunchy, the addition of julienned carrots and chives give this kimchi an additional sweetness.

Bear Naked Food Thai style crispy pork belly

Thai-Style Crispy Pork Belly

This Thai-Style Crispy Pork Belly is another mouth-watering favorite snack whenever I wander around the streets in Bangkok. Now, the mere thought of deep frying is enough to put off many health Nazis, not to mention the choice of cut used as well. However, since pork fat has made it to number 8 on the list of top 100 nutritious food and we are using good quality cooking oil, making this dish at home seems to lessen my guilt on eating this intensely crispy and meltingly tender meat. Of course, in a healthy diet, all foods are okay in moderation. Pair it with a serving of refreshing salad or vegetables that are low in calories and all will be well.

Chinese-Style Swiss Roll

Growing up, I remember tagging along with mom to the local old-school confectionery store near our house to get our breakfast items. Paper wrapped sponge cake, Pandan coconut waffles, fluffy, cottony soft swiss roll. Ah, those are some of the sweet memories of my childhood.
