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 […]

Grilled Turmeric Chicken and Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

Sunday is usually a big cooking day for us, so that all we would need to do during the busy weekdays is just reheating. One of the dishes we made this week was grilled turmeric chicken. This recipe originally comes from Linda of Roti n Rice. The dish is easy to make (it is simply […]

Steak for Dinner

Meat, meat, and more meat. We had ribeye steak for dinner last night with macaroni salad. Sooooooo delicious! The steaks were cooked on a gas grill. All we use for seasoning is just plain old salt (coarse) and black pepper. If cooked indoors on a pan, we would sometimes sprinkle on fresh thyme leaves as […]

Macaroni Salad and Jersey-Style Hot Dogs

Earlier this afternoon, Alex helped me make macaroni salad. For dinner, I would have loved a steak to go with it. :) However, that means a trip to Costco on a Friday evening…totally not up to it. Instead, we made Jersey-style hot dogs for the very first time. It was easy-peasy and delicious! Recipe for […]

Favorite Turkey Burger

This post was originally published back in January 2009. I finally decided to update the photos, and republish it seeing that the recipe is a family favorite! We absolutely love these turkey burgers, which are just bursting with flavor and are not greasy at all. Not only that, they are simple to make. Enjoy! Recipe’s […]
