Malaysian Nasi Lemak

O.M.G. Everything is so delicious and goes fantastic together! The hours of toiling to make the sambal and the body aches afterwards are well-worth it after all! Lol. Behold the Nasi Lemak dish… Recipe for the fragrant, rich coconut rice can be found in a previously published post – Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice). Alternatively, you […]

Turmeric Fried Chicken

In addition to the basic accompaniments, I decided to make fried chicken as well to go with the nasi lemak. So simple but yet so delicious!

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

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 […]
