Oriental Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti bolognese is one of the Italian's greatest inventions as it is not only easy to cook, but also delicious and healthy. As am not a big fan of Italian herbs, so I made some adjustments to this Italian dish with the ingredients easily found at the local markets where I live sans herbs and cheese.

Apple Sauce

My family and I went to a local clean-eating concept restaurant and since my daughter would like to have something light, we ordered a chef-recommended bread-salad dish with apple sauce for its dressing. Boy, were we disappointed with the apple sauce! Other than the few pieces of chopped apple bits (more as garnishing than for flavour), there was nothing apple about it. Just syrup with chopped apples. So this weekend, I made my version of apple sauce and it made us vowed not to order the same dish from the restaurant, ever again!

Steamed egg custard with shimeji mushroom

Although fried food with all its crisp and aromatic lure is hard to resist, but we should not indulge too much, especially in this kind of hot weather. For a change, we can prepare a steamed dish to appease all without compromising on the taste buds. Am sharing a super simple steamed egg custard that can be served as a dish during lunch or dinner, or just a one-dish meal on its own.

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.

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.

Haw Flake Drink

Have you heard of haw flakes? Okay, if you are an Asian, there is a high chance you have came across haw flakes as a common tangy disc snack wrapped in paper which is imported from China. It is still found in almost all Chinese medicine halls. This is actually made from a very sour fruit that has beneficial properties to our digestive system and packed with vitamins. I'm sharing this recipe today to ease the effect of overeating.

Today, I'm sharing a simple pizza idea which we can prepare very easily at home and will leave your kids begging for more.

Caramel Pork with Onions

Judging by the name of the dish, one probably can guess that this dish is slightly sweet. Which is not wrong, therefore, this very appetizing dish can be served with steamed rice or plain bun (mantao). I was inspired to cook my version of this dish after tasting it at a famous Hokkien restaurant. One word to describe, YUMS!
