Stir-fried Kang Kong with Preserved Soy Bean

Stir-fry vegetables is really one of my favorite way to enjoy my greens. One of my all-time favorite vegetable is Kang Kong aka water morning glory/ water spinach. Even though making stir-fry greens is usually a no-brainer, making a decent plate of crunchy, fresh green colored Kang Kong requires a little attention...

Lychee-tini Jelly Shots

This Lychee-tini Jelly Shots has been on my to-make list for quite a while. The original version contains alcohol – using either Cointreau, vodka or martini. Since I’ll be bringing this tray of jelly for a family potluck gathering later, I’m going to go the virgin route and use a can of fizzy Kickapoo Joy Juice instead. This way, my little cousins will get to enjoy them as well without getting into trouble with the parents...

Double Chocolate Pavlova with Mascarpone Cream

This Double Chocolate Pavlova with Mascarpone Cream is made with one of my favorite girlfriends in mind. She is a huge fan of chocolate, meringue and also gluten-intolerant. Action speaks louder than words, I actually made this for her birthday (few weeks back) and hand delivered it right to her door. And yes, it lasted the 25-min journey and kept well in the fridge even till the next day...

Japanese Yakisoba

Couple of weeks ago, I made this Japanese Yakisoba for lunch. Armed with a limited supply of ingredients in my pantry, I managed to whip up a rather decent meal for myself. Not too bad, right? The proper name for this noodle dish is sōsu yakisoba (ソース焼きそば), literally means fried buckwheat, which is what soba noodles are made of...
