So this tip actually came from my breakfast chef aka my man. I don't usually pay attention to how he prepared my breakfast until one day, I decided to hover over him while he cut up my fruits. In a swift motion, the kiwi was peeled. I think I just fell for him a little more... [read more]

Baked Miso Marinated Cod

Baked Miso Marinated Cod

September 8, 2014
Cod vs Chilean Seabass. Many would wonder what is the difference? Is the cod I'm eating really cod? Well, I've consulted with Google and found out most of the 'cod' sold locally (Singapore) are actually Chilean Sea bass or Patagonian Toothfish. The taste and texture between these two are very similar - mild flavor and dense flaky white flesh. It.. [read more]

Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

September 5, 2014
Fans of dark chocolate will love this. Its deep, dark and mysterious. Ok, maybe not that mysterious since there are tons of dark chocolate ice cream recipes readily available. I guess dark chocolate is an acquired taste. I'm talking about 70% to 85%. Dark chocolate lovers will probably relate to the %. I've tried a few different recipes and found.. [read more]

Crispy Apple Turnovers

September 3, 2014
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]

Royal Gala Apples

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?

Mini Apple Crumble

September 1, 2014
Found some granny smith apples lying in my basket of oranges. What I can do with 3 of them? I've just finished giving the oven a good scrub down (I can't remember the last time I did it, oops) and really not in the mood to make anything complicated, or rather, anything that involves in heavy cleaning up. Hmm...I know..... [read more]

Red Cabbage Slaw with vinaigrette dressing

Red Cabbage Slaw

August 27, 2014
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..
