German Roast Pork Knuckle

Schweinshaxe, or German Pork Knuckle is something that is sure to wow any hog-loving dinner guest. I can’t remember the first time I’ve ever tried this dish, but we are lucky to be able to get them in many European inspired restaurants/pubs here. The attraction is definitely the super crunchy skin, in contrast with juicy,…

Keto Beef Moussaka

After staying at home for more than 5 weeks, I think we are slowly getting used to the new norm. Going out became a chore, especially when the supermarkets are always filled with shoppers. So far, I’ve only been out 3 times for groceries run, as some of the items are not easily accessible through…

Keto Creme Brulee (with non-Brulee Variations)

As promised, another post within the same week! And what better than a little dessert recipe? The MCO is definitely testing everyone’s patience and we really do try our best not to go out at all. As a result, I’ve become obsessed with finding out all the suppliers who can do home delivery. From vegetables,…

Keto Meatloaf with Mustard Caper Cream Sauce

One great thing about cooking at home is that you have the power to decide what to make; from something super simple like steak and fried eggs, to something a little bit more fancy that will wow the dinner company. For me, it depends entirely on my mood because even though I’m just as happy…

Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia Workshop – Charlotte Vanilla Raspberries

There is something to be said about the physical act of creating or making something with your own hands. It is definitely a rewarding experience, especially in this day and age where everything has become so convenient.

There are many years Malaysians love to enjoy Cream crackers. Some of you…

Bliss, is when you have found a life partner who is just excited as you are to go on food adventures of different kinds. I’m lucky that Kevin and I seem to agree most of the time on our meal choices, and that has brought us some memorable dining experiences, some are hits and some…

Salted Egg Yolk Cookies (CNY)

It’s exactly one week to go until Chinese New Year! Have you bought all the necessary things (by necessary I mean mostly food) yet? Some of you have been baking up a frenzy, no doubt. Since we finally got a decent oven for this household, I’ve been hardworking enough to churn out some Chinese New…

F&N Full Cream Sweetened Condensed Milk & Banoffee Pie

Did you know that nowadays most of the “condensed milk” you see on the market aren’t actually made with real milk? And the “real” ones generally can be quite expensive as they were all imported. Well here’s a piece of good news for you: F&N recently reintroduced the Full Cream Sweetened Condensed Milk and is…

AFF Indochina: Ping Kai (Laotian Roast Chicken)

My second contribution to AFF Indochina is a Laotian recipe: Ping Kai. It’s also called Kai Yang in Thailand but essentially the recipe is brought over to Thailand by the Lao people too. This is a very popular street food you can find pretty much anywhere locally, often paired with the tam mak hoong (Lao…
