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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Rotisserie Chicken Porridge

Another busy week flew by…due to the lack of time in our lives, I often cook in huge quantities (enough to last us several meals). It’s not exactly an ideal situation but at least we get to have a home-cooked meal most days. Usually, I would make something tried and true, of course. It has to be […]

Salted Fish Fried Rice

Where has the time gone to? (I ask that question a lot in my life. :D) A couple of weeks ago, we bought 4 yards of mulch (basically a HUGE mound) for our flower/herb gardens and Keith and I have been weeding and mulching every chance we have and we’re still not done. Aaargh…I almost, almost wish […]

Shrimp and Avocado Sushi

We had sushi for lunch and dinner today. It was absolutely delicious! And it was actually my first time making rolled sushi with a bamboo mat – took me a couple of tries before I managed to get the hang of it. What do you think? Not too shabby for an amateur, right? :D Nori (roasted […]

Rotisserie Chicken and Preserved Egg Porridge

The cooler, more seasonable weather recently gave me the perfect reason (like I’d need one :D) to indulge in one of my cold-weather comfort foods – porridge! This time, I combined my love of rotisserie chicken and preserved eggs in one pot. Normally, we would eat the preserved eggs as is, like a condiment but I also find them to […]

Sushi Bowl

This is a dish I first saw in Kimba’s Kitchen a while ago. I thought it’s a great way to have the flavor of sushi (Keith and I LOVE sushi!) without the hassle of making them. In my mind, I was already imagining our favorite sushi ingredients in the bowl – unagi, smoked salmon, teriyaki chicken, […]

Chicken Porridge

Alex applied for his first library card today at our local library! He also learned to look up books via the online catalog, as well as how to find those books on the shelves. Surprisingly, he was really excited throughout the whole experience. :D How our little boy is growing up… Here’s another dish I […]

Temaki (Hand Roll) Sushi

Of all the types of sushi, I decided to make hand roll sushi because it seems simpler compared to the rest and also, it doesn’t require a bamboo rolling mat (which I don’t have). :) We used the following ingredients for our sushi: Nori (roasted seaweed) sheets, cut in half lengthwise Sushi rice Wasabi Mayonnaise […]
