Bacon Fried Rice

Ugh…when is this brutal cold going to stop? On top of that, we have a severe weather warning in effect that is calling for more snow! I guess we will be staying in today and do what we love best – EAT! :) I made this delicious bacon fried rice last week, where we had […]

Stir-Fried Laksa Noodles

Unlike the traditional version of laksa that I grew up with, where the noodles are served in a mouthwatering savory, piquant laksa broth, this drier version is equally as delicious. It’s laksa! You can’t go wrong either way. Enjoy! 1 (6.75 ounces) package rice noodles/rice sticks/bee hoon/maifun* 1/2 tablespoon oil 4 large eggs, beaten 1 […]

Ham Fried Rice

Ham, ham, and more ham! The problem with having ham for a holiday meal is that there is always sooooooooooo much leftover and one would have to keep thinking of different ways to use it. Here’s an easy option for those of you looking to do something slightly different than your typical leftover ham sandwich. […]

Easy and Delicious Sliders

I saw a similar recipe a while back but did not give it a try until a couple of months ago when I was reminded by a co-worker. Since then, I have made my version of this recipe multiple times because it is so ridiculously easy that I’m not sure it should even be considered a […]

Favorite Mac and Cheese

It’s getting colder and grayer – I knew we would be paying for all those gorgeous, blue sky days.  Seriously, I do love fall…it’s just that I know what will be coming next…the dreaded season that starts with “w.” Why can’t winter just be around during the week, you know, and then every weekend, we […]

Malaysian Laksa

We celebrated Alex’s 12th birthday recently. 12!!! Sob! Where did my baby go? He has grown into a young man, apparently. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before but Alex is on the Autism spectrum and it has been a long road to help get him to where he is right now.  He has […]

Stir-Fried Noodles with Shrimp

Looks like it has been a while again since the last time I checked in. Too many things are going on in our lives right now – worrisome things, depressing things, but thank goodness some happy things as well. I guess that’s just life – you take the bad with the good and somehow, things […]

Sweet and Sour Pork

We started school officially this Tuesday. Boy, it was hard to get back in the groove of things. Why can’t it be summer all year long? :) Between prep time for lessons, actual school time, extra-curricular activities, working three days a week (including both Saturday and Sunday), and life in general, there isn’t a lot […]

Chicken Rendang

Last Sunday, I finally decided to use the homemade rendang paste I had stashed in the freezer since January…of this year (I’m not that terrible of a procrastinator…I think). As always, every time I make rendang, I wonder why I don’t cook it more often because it’s sooooooo delicious. Oh yeah…I forgot for a moment […]
