A little welcome note

Hi ladies, welcome to Daily Home Cooks. I know we working mums are crazy hectic and for every minute we spend doing nothing, it is called luxury. As for our corporate sisters, time at home is sacred and would like to spend the least time cooking and more time sleeping. For whatever reasons, we can share our tips to function more productively here. Click here to to find for the basic ingredients we should always stock up at home.

Longevity Buns

I attended a wonderful birthday dinner of one of my elderly aunts. The meal was good and the ambiance was just perfect. Every dish served has a good symbolic meaning and one course caught my attention and it was the longevity steamed buns or known as paus. Paus are literally steamed buns.

Prawn Porridge (congee)

Two weeks ago, I share a meatball porridge recipe after trying it myself . Boy, it became an instant favorite! So the following weekend, I attempted another porridge and it too, became a new entry in my family's please-cook-again list. One may ask, why porridge every Sunday? The answer is pretty simple, I want everyone at home to enjoy a wholesome healthy dinner whilst I get my fair share no-fuss cooking, porridge fits the bill, perfectly. Since I was able to buy fresh prawns (shrimps) from the market, so it was really a no-brainer to cook porridge.

Toasted Baguette

It's been more than a week now since my last post. Been extremely busy with spring cleaning. Yes, although I have tried some new recipes at home but am sharing one for now. It's a very simple toasted baguette. Sounds easy, right? But I have tried more than 5 times before making the perfect toasted baguette. Pair it with a nice warm thick mushroom soup or simply dip it with a bowl of tangy tomato soup. Or... coarsely crush them to go with your favorite salad. I guarantee it won't disappoint.

Many cosmetics giants are using orange as this fruit is also packed with vitamins, particularly Vitamin C, which is beneficial to our skin, teeth and eyes. Today, I am sharing some suggestions how you can use this versatile fruit.

Steamed White Pomfret

Have improvised this recipe with chopped shitake mushroom making it an even more wholesome dish. The smooth and soft steamed shitake mushroom, soaked in the garlic oil and soy sauce is really a perfect condiment to go with steamed rice or plain porridge.
