Crispy Apple Turnovers

Since I made the mini apple crumble on Monday, my family has been requesting me for my apple turnovers. How can I say no to them, right? The ingredients and steps are pretty similar to the apple crumble. Just that I had to get more apples since I used up the remaining on Monday. Always happy to pop down to.. [read more]

Splitting An Apple – No Knife!

September 2, 2014
The usual way of eating apples is hold and bite. Now, if you don't like eating apples whole (they can, after all, get a little messy that way), but don't always have a knife around, you can actually break them in half with your bare hands - sounds weird?

Found some granny smith apples lying in my basket of oranges. What I can do with 3 of them?

This is not your typical KFC coleslaw version. Sorry, mayonnaise lovers. I'll make it up to you all in other recipes. Red cabbage is also known as purple cabbage. The color comes from growing in acidic soils. Alkaline soil will produce greenish-yellow cabbages. Well, you get the idea. I prefer to use red cabbage instead of greenish-yellow cabbage in..

Crispy Quinoa Salad that tastes so delicious

Crispy Quinoa Salad

August 18, 2014
I fell in love - Quinoa is the first name. Here is why. What is Quinoa? (pronounced as kin-wa). Quinoa is a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seed. The Incas held the crop to be sacred. Nutritional evaluations indicate that quinoa is a source of complete protein. I just simply acknowledged it as a superfood. Since discovering.. [read more]

Jerk Chicken

Yeah, I know what you are thinking. What the heck is Jerk Chicken? No. This is not a bad chicken.
