Pasta with Mini Portobello Mushrooms + Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce Posted by: | April 30, 2010
 

I love sauce-less pasta, such as Aglo Olio. It’s a good excuse to load on the good quality extra virgin olive oil and garlic, “LOTS OF GAAARLIC” (Martin Yan accent). Plus, it’s super simple to make too. I managed to grab a pack of mini portobello mushrooms on the way back from work and that […]

Tuesday is Stir-Fry day Posted by: | April 28, 2010
 

I have mentioned before that Tuesdays are the longest work day of the week. Or at least it feels like it. I managed to drop by the supermarket and still be home by 7:30pm. However, it felt like 9pm to me. Time to recharge myself with all the goodness of the fresh and colorful vegetables […]

Organic Homemade Popcorn Posted by: | April 22, 2010
 

I love popcorn. To me, Popcorn has this magical way of making me happy like a little child. Even now when I am home with my parents, and we go out, I still like to beg my Dad to buy me popcorn. It’s tradition: I beg for popcorn. Mom says no. Dad goes to buy […]

Classic Tomato Sauce Pasta (from Jamie Oliver’s "Food Revolution") Posted by: | April 20, 2010
 

It’s Monday and I had to start the day earlier than usual for a work event. 11 hours later, I came home tired and still stuffed from the teabreaks and lunch buffet during the day. Plus, it was pouring outside. This calls for a really quick and simple dinner so that I can chill in […]

Bruschetta with Smashed Cherry Tomatoes & Olives Posted by: | April 19, 2010
 

Bruschetta is my all time favorite appetizer. And what better way to make Bruschetta than making with your own home-made french bread?  A concept I would not dare to phathom a year ago, or even a few months back. But this weekend, being phenomenal as it is thanks to the birth of my first bread, […]

Vietnamese Style Healthy Chicken Stir Fry Posted by: | April 15, 2010
 

Tonight I had the pleasure of hosting a simple midweek dinner for 2 of my closest friends I met through the working world: Gary & Jolin. It was a rather random and last minute thing. Luckily I already had some nice chicken fillet in my freezer and a bunch of dry and fresh mushrooms I […]

Rainy Tuesday dinner – Chicken Soup with Vegetables Posted by: | April 14, 2010
 

It rained cats and dogs today late afternoon and evening. I suddenly had such a strong craving for Chicken Soup. It’s one of those very rare days in Singapore where you just wanna get out of the air-conditioning and have a hot drink. While still at work, I already have visions of my mom’s chicken […]

Weeknight Stir Fry Posted by: | April 8, 2010
 

Today is an awesome day! Not just cause I just had a lipsmackin’ dinner, but also cause I finally own a semi-pro digital camera! All that food blogging has made me realize how much I needed a good camera to do my food justice. And for my budget, I wouldn’t be able to get anything […]

Brocoli and Pesto Pasta: My first step towards "Jamie’s Food Revolution" Posted by: | April 5, 2010
 

It’s the last day of my long Easter weekend. Bummer. Yesterday I went a little crazy at shopping and might have spent my budget for a food processor (which I am dying to buy) on this season’s new arrival apparels. Sigh. I also bought myself 2 new cookbooks: “Jamie’s Food Revolution” by Jamie Oliver, and […]

Perfect dinner for the longest day of the week: Shrimp Stir Fry Posted by: | March 31, 2010
 

It has been statistically proven that Tuesday tends to be the longest & busiest work day of the week, and I can’t agree more. If Monday was busy, then today was “so-busy-that-I-didn’t-have-time-to-touch-up-my-bruised-eye” busy. Yep. My eye bruise is getting darker by the hour and I swear people now don’t dare to look me in the […]
