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 […]

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 […]

Our Thanksgiving Meal

Here are some photos of our simple but oh so delicious Thanksgiving meal. We ate around noon since there wasn’t much prep involved. Just had to heat the ham and scalloped potatoes, cook the green beans, and the rest was essentially done. And boy, did we thoroughly enjoy our meal! Hope you all did as well. […]

Stir-Fried Sugar Snap Peas with Tomatoes

I don’t usually have anything in mind when I shop for veggies to go with our meal. I buy what looks good and is reasonably priced. This week, the sugar snap peas fit the bill and they were so good that they really didn’t need much embellishment. I did my usual quick stir-fry, threw some tomatoes in at the […]

Stir-Fried Green Beans with Eggs

A childhood dish that never gets old, this is as homestyle as it can get. My mum used to cook this dish at least once a week. It was served with every dish imaginable…steamed meat, soup, stew, fried chicken, or fish, and everything’s served with rice, of course. :D Here, I’m pairing it with the […]

Stir-Fried Green Beans with Crispy Anchovies

I’m trying to recall how this dish came about but it has been over 20 years, so the memory is a little hazy. I remember cooking this dish for the very first time when I was a teenager and I think it came about from my love for the salty, crispy anchovies. :D I don’t recall seeing […]
