Easy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Ahhhh Brussels sprouts! You either hate it or love it. Appears frequently on Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, it’s not exactly a common vegetable in Malaysia. However we are starting to see more and more grocers selling them at a reasonable price, and most of them are from Australia, so the quality is pretty good. Scarred…

Keto Shopping Guide (Non-Halal)

It has been 16 months since we embarked on a ketogenic lifestyle and I think this is the most successful way of eating by far for me. Sure, there have been instances where we gave in and have a bit of a cheat meal (especially when on vacation), but I always suffer the consequences in…

Sous Vide Siew Yoke

Words are not enough to describe how much I love pork belly. And most people would agree that Siew Yoke (literally translates to roast meat) is the best way to showcase Pork Belly, with the Crispy skin, melt-in-your-mouth fat layer and juicy meat, simply flavoured with salt, pepper and five-spice powder.

And just to summarize it quickly: We don’t do any processed carbohydrates, which means no rice, noodles, pasta, bread, pizza, sweetened drinks etc; that’s obvious, right? But a lot of…

Cooking with Chefology x McCormick: Japanese Hamburg

After the Chefology x McCormick Bloggers Event, we each took home our very own Chefology pan along with a range of McCormick Herbs and Spices for us to have some fun at home. And of course it didn’t take much convincing for me to switch over to the Chefology pan. It’s a 24cm frying pan…

Siew Yoke (Roast Pork) with Panasonic Cubie Oven

There is something innately appealing about crispy food. Perhaps it’s because we associate crispy with great tasting food: generally crispy food is a product of the Maillard reaction, which leads to more intensely flavoured and savoury food, or maybe it’s the whole sensory experience of hearing that tantalizing sound of crunch and the texture. For…
