Chicken Egg Rolls

The deep-frying saga continues today, lol. Another thing I craved recently is fried spring rolls. I ended up making egg rolls instead since I didn’t feel like going to the Asian store to buy spring roll wraps. I have to say I am pretty impressed with the Nasoya egg roll wraps – everything you need […]

Tuna Salad

I actually put this together late last night before I went to bed, anticipating that we would want something easy-peasy for lunch today and I’m all out of leftovers, lol. Delicious! 2 (7 ounce) cans tuna (I use Chicken of the Sea Tuna Chunk Light) 3/4 cup mayo 2 tablespoons sweet relish 1 stalk celery, […]

Fried Radish Cake and Porridge

I had fried radish cake (made this a while back and froze it and promptly forgot I have it until a couple of days ago, lol) and simple porridge with stir-fried green beans and roasted peanuts for breakfast. Comfort food indeed! ❤️ Radish cake recipe is from MyKitchen101en.com. Porridge is simply made from rice (I […]

Macaroni Salad and Fried Chicken

I am so in the mood for warmer weather, not that I ever need an excuse to eat fried chicken. 😉 Dig in! Recipe for the macaroni salad can be found in the Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork post while the extremely simple fried chicken marinade is listed below: Approximately 2 pounds chicken […]

Cajun Spiced Salmon with Green Beans and Rice Pilaf

Lunch was simple and delicious today! Here’s our short-cut, lazy method that yields moist and tender salmon: Preheat oven to 375°F. Place frozen salmon fillets (do not have to thaw) in a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. Coat with a couple tablespoons oil and season with Cajun (or Creole) seasoning. Even if oven has […]

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Asparagus

This is a super quick and exceptionally easy dish to put together! Not only that, it tastes fantastic (that is if you like shrimp and asparagus). :) Enjoy! 2 tablespoons oil (I use vegetable oil or extra light olive oil) 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 pound shrimp (I use frozen tail-on shrimp, thawed) 1 […]

Easy Stir-Fried Green Cabbage

For lunch today, we had Kirkland Master Carve Ham, Reser’s Main St. Bistro Baked Scalloped Potatoes, and a simple green cabbage stir-fry. Delicious! 2 tablespoons oil (I use extra light olive oil) 2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced 1 medium head cabbage (2 to 2-1/4 pounds), rinsed, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced […]

Turkey Porridge with Simple, Stir-Fried Tomatoes

Made this delicious turkey porridge with leftover turkey from Christmas, along with a wonderfully savory tomato stir-fry. Absolutely satisfying! ❤️ Note: This is an approximation recipe where you could do no wrong (sorry, no exact measurement this time – both the turkey and tomatoes were leftovers, I just used them all). Porridge Rinse and place […]

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 […]
