Bacon Fried Rice

Ugh…when is this brutal cold going to stop? On top of that, we have a severe weather warning in effect that is calling for more snow! I guess we will be staying in today and do what we love best – EAT! :) I made this delicious bacon fried rice last week, where we had […]

Stop and Smell the Roses

We went to Costco a couple of days ago to get some groceries and on our way out, I paused to admire the flowers. I was drawn to the purple roses and on a whim, I asked Keith if we should get it. While I love flowers, I rarely purchase them because I often can’t […]

Dinosaurs at Work

This is just too fabulously cute and awesome to not share with the world. I have a super creative supervisor at work who (I don’t know how) easily comes up with fun and imaginative ideas like this (and more) all the time! This was put together at home and set up inside her work locker […]

Stir-Fried Laksa Noodles

Unlike the traditional version of laksa that I grew up with, where the noodles are served in a mouthwatering savory, piquant laksa broth, this drier version is equally as delicious. It’s laksa! You can’t go wrong either way. Enjoy! 1 (6.75 ounces) package rice noodles/rice sticks/bee hoon/maifun* 1/2 tablespoon oil 4 large eggs, beaten 1 […]

Malaysian-Style Soft Boiled Eggs

I love, love, love eggs! While I love them cooked in various ways, my favorite kind is the Malaysian soft-boiled eggs. Unlike their western counterparts, these eggs are softer overall with silkier, runnier whites. Seasoned with a little bit of soy sauce and a dash of white pepper, I could slurp down ten of them […]

Coffee-Flavored Banana Cake

No, this is not your usual American coffee cake with the typical streusel topping. Instead, it’s a moist and tender banana cake infused with a lovely coffee flavor – perfect for anytime snack or as a light dessert after a meal. Delicious! {Adapted from the Sour Cream Banana Cake recipe from the Good Home Cooking […]

Merry Christmas

I would like to share the words from a card we received from my in-laws back at Thanksgiving which I thought was simply poignant and appropriate for any season, regardless if your loved ones are near or far. “The things that matter most of all are often close at hand – A touch, a hug, […]

Ham Fried Rice

Ham, ham, and more ham! The problem with having ham for a holiday meal is that there is always sooooooooooo much leftover and one would have to keep thinking of different ways to use it. Here’s an easy option for those of you looking to do something slightly different than your typical leftover ham sandwich. […]

Cranberry Wheat Bread

As I was planning our Thanksgiving meal the other day, I told Keith I would make our favorite cranberry bread as one of the side dishes. Almost immediately after he agreed, I thought out loud and said that maybe I should make some other bread instead because I tend to make the same bread for […]
