Sourdough Bread: The Journey Continues

While I agreed with so many of you (who had commented on Facebook) that less holes are better to keep the butter on the bread, I made a few changes to see if I can indeed produce a loaf with a more open crumb if desired. I essentially doubled the bulk fermentation and proofing time. […]

Steamed Salmon

I have been craving steamed fish lately and finally, made the dish after work today. It’s simple to put together (if you have all the ingredients) and is so delicious that I ate a huge plate of rice with it. 😋 3 medium-size salmon fillets Broccoli florets, however much you like and can fit on […]

Sourdough Bread

So, I had a day off on Monday and I pretty much spent that entire day attending to my sourdough bread dough, lol. I mentioned to Keith that while the process of making sourdough bread does bring me plenty of joy, it is also extremely time-consuming that I’m not sure if it’s worth my time […]

Pandan Coconut Sweet Rolls with Dried Cranberries

I made these Pandan Coconut Sweet Rolls with Dried Cranberries recently as an attempt to recapture the taste of a favorite childhood bread. Pandan and coconut is a classic pairing and a much loved flavor among Malaysians and Singaporeans. The Pandan Coconut bread typically contains a scattered amount of dark and golden raisins but I […]

Steamed Shrimp

Bought fresh shrimp yesterday and I didn’t get to cook them until this afternoon for lunch. Made a simple sauce mixture to pour on top before steaming the shrimp……so delicious! 1 pack fresh shrimp from Costco (guessing about 2 pounds), cleaned and deveined 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 small red chilies, sliced 2 tablespoons light […]

Fried Branzino

Tried Branzino for the first time – why does it taste so familiar? I feel like it tastes similar to another Asian fish but I don’t know what. 🤷🏻‍♀️ While we are on the topic of fish, I like to deep-fry my fish because I like to munch on the crispy head, fins, and tail, […]

Made the famous Tik Tok baked feta pasta for dinner recently. There are so many versions out there but below is how we did ours – so easy and super delicious! ❤️ 8 ounces feta cheese 1-1/2 lbs tomatoes, cut into chunks 5 to 6 cloves garlic, peeled 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1-1/2 teaspoons […]
