Scrumptious Chocolate Layer Bars

This winter has been rough on all of us, health wise. Both Keith and Alex had the flu, which turned into pneumonia for Alex! I am still recovering from a bout of intestinal virus I caught more than a week ago although it would seem I have managed to fend off the insidious flu that […]

Brown Sugar Meringue Kisses

Today is supposedly “balmy” with a high of 18°F (that is approximately -8 Celsius, by the way). Despite the higher temp in comparison to the past week, it does not feel warmer at all! Additionally, a new batch of bitter Arctic air is heading our way, which is expected to plunge us back to the […]

Happy New Year!

This photo was taken in July 2017 at Edgewater Park near the location of one of the Cleveland script signs. Every time I look at this picture, it just tugs at my heart string to see how much Alex has grown and the challenges he has overcome in his life. Love this kiddo soooooooo much! […]

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 […]
