Spring rolls with sweet potato and yam filling

Since it's a long weekend, I am sharing a simple idea for party food. We know some of us like to host tea parties over long weekends sans vacation. I promise this is going to be the easiest party food ever and required no more than 5 ingredients to get the thumbs up from your party guests. Spring rolls are not just easy to make, also less messy for kids to eat while parents treat themselves to a good get-together.

Nasi Lemak

Malaysia is celebrating its 60th birthday today and how can we celebrate this special occasion without its most beloved food, the nasi lemak. I have previously posted an article about nasi lemak bungkus and today, am sharing the recipe to making its most important ingredient, the sambal or the chilly jam that can either make or break the entire assemble.

Potato Tuna Nuggets

Potato is a very common kitchen staple ingredient and it is easily found all year around. So common that we may even overstock them at home sometimes. Today, I'm sharing an easy-done-than-said special nugget idea which is health and yummy. It is a perfect item to serve with children around. Using only few ingredients and little effort, am sure you will set the party ready in a jiffy.

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.

Versatile Orange

Orange is a citrus fruit that is popular for its juice, sweetness and energizing fragrance. 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.
