Happy Chap Goh Mei! Today is the 15th and last day of Chinese New Year and back home, we would typically have a mini celebratory dinner but since I have to work all day today, all I could scrounge up was a delicious dish of crispy roast pork belly, lol. Can I tell you a […]

Simple Fried Chicken Strips

Not my usual marinade for fried chicken but a delicious one nevertheless…..although I have to say I do prefer the seasonings with pork chops, if given a choice. Enjoy!

Easy Open-Faced Omelet

I find that I use a LOT of aromatics and salt-free seasonings/spices nowadays to boost flavor since I have to drastically cut back my sodium intake (I miss salt!). My go-to aromatics are garlic (my absolute favorite) and sweet onion (you can get a giant bag of the sweet onions at Costco for less than […]

Christmas Eve Dinner

Ever since I watched an Eater video of salmon collars being served at a Filipino food stall at Seattle’s famous Pike Place Fish Market, I had been longing to try them, lol. However, for the life of me, we can’t find salmon collars anywhere locally. The internet apparently had read my mind and plastered Fulton […]

Lamb Rendang with Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

I decided to make lamb rendang today with only the ingredients that are currently in my pantry – so no fresh chilies, shallots, or galangal. Instead, I used dried chilies, yellow onion, and ginger. Thankfully, I had a couple stalks of lemongrass in my freezer. It turned out soooooooo good! I served it with nasi […]
