Green Mango Salad (Som Tam Mamuang)

So far, there’s no one I know who doesn’t like Som Tam. If you are not familiar with Som Tam, it is a staple item in every Thai restaurants’ menu. “Som” means sour and “Tam” refers to the method that is used to make this salad. Typically the dish uses green papaya, but green mango is a pretty popular choice here too. When I came across some green mangoes at the Thai Supermarket at Golden Mile Complex, I immediately grabbed half a dozen and came home immediately to make this Green Mango Salad. Oh, I also picked up this bag of Thai pickling garlic. They are smaller than normal garlic and the flavor is milder, which is usually used for Thai salads. You could substitute with any other garlic too...

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chunk Muffin

Muffins are really just cakes baked in small cups and they appeal to almost everyone. Today’s Sweet Potato Chocolate Chunk Muffin might sounds a little unusual yet, it is totally worth trying. Who would have thought of marrying sweet potato and chocolate chunk in a muffin? Well Martha Stewart did...

Flourless Cloud Bread

Since I saw this Cloud Bread making waves on the internet some time last year, I’ve been wanting to give this super easy 4-ingredient recipe a try. Now, traditionally, one of the crucial ingredients for bread making is flour, yet this recipe calls for none. The method resembles very much like making a soufflé yet less complicated so there is no really no messing up on this one (I hope). The only thing you'll want to take note is the whisking of the egg whites. When the instruction states beat egg whites until STIFF peaks, you must really beat them till STIFF peaks. The stiffer the better. That way, your cloud bread will hold their shapes well when you transfer them onto the baking tray...

Homemade Baked Beignets

These soft, pillowy bites of yeasted dough are as delicious as they look. Oh, for those of you who are not acquainted with Beignet, it is usually made with yeast, bread flour, evaporated milk, deep fried and dusted with a generous coating of icing sugar. Think of it as the cousin of churros. This no-machine needed dough can be easily mixed together by a wooden spoon or hand and instead of deep frying them, I popped them into a preheated oven of 180°C/350°F and baked them to golden brown perfection. You could definitely deep fry them as well in medium hot oil for a couple of minutes...

Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache

Truth be told, when I first came across this Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache in Rose’s Heavenly Cakes by cake goddess Rose Levy Beranbaum, I skimmed past the recipe and did not even bother to attempt it. Perhaps it was the lack of an illustration of the cake or maybe the daunting 3-page instructions, whatever the case was, I’m glad I finally rolled up my sleeves and did it. The end result is worth the 2 days effort...

Copycat IKEA Fried Chicken Wings

Besides their affordable furniture and home furnishing, IKEA Singapore is also well known for their great range of meals and snacks. In fact, their Swedish Meatballs and Fried Chicken Wings are the most popular items to order. *Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. Ever since I posted my Better-than-Ikea Swedish Meatballs last year, I’ve been wanting to recreate my own copycat version of IKEA Chicken Wings. After two rounds of kitchen testing, I think this is it. Actually, my test testers think these wings are better than IKEA’s...
