Air Fryer Ayam Goreng Berempah (Spiced Fried Chicken) with Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

I have to say we are pretty pleased with our new air fryer so far. Last night, we made ayam goreng berempah or spiced fried chicken, and the chicken is cooked to perfection as usual, without much effort on our end. We served the chicken with a simple but delicious meal of nasi lemak (coconut […]

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 […]

Roasted Cauliflower

The easiest side dish ever for your everyday meal or special occasion! Delicious too! ❤️ 1 head cauliflower, cut into large chunks of florets* Olive oil Coarse salt and black pepper to taste *If rinsing cauliflower florets (which I do), dry with cloth or paper towel. If the florets are too wet, they would just […]

Corned Beef

Sometime this summer, I found the Hereford corned beef at Costco – best brand of corned beef I’ve ever tried! I purchased a few to keep for those days when I want a no-fuss meal – just stir-fry some veggies and serve them and the corned beef on the side with rice. It’s a childhood […]

Steak Dinner

Recently, I watched a video on famous steakhouses in New York City and I had a hankering for steak since then, lol. I’m sure I don’t make it as good as the professional chefs but our ribeye steaks along with potatoes pan-fried in beef fat and stir-fried green beans sure tasted delicious to us! Not […]

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 […]
