Lechon Porchetta

I’m back with another recipe post! And this time it’s another way to prepare pork belly. Some of you might know that I’m partial to Filipino cuisine, and have actually shared a few recipes on my blog including the Tortang Talong, Banana Ketchup, Pork Adobo etc.  Recently I’ve met quite a few talented artists from the…

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 Braised Pork Leg (Pressure Cooker)

How do you feel about the partial relaxation of the MCO? For those who are not in Malaysia, today is the re-opening of our economical sectors, meaning most shops and businesses are back in operation, with the exception of schools, entertainment services, hair/beauty saloons and several other less essential services. While some of us have…

Keto Pork Belly Adobo with Liver Sauce

Hi everyone! Today is the 33rd day of the MCO, I hope everyone is doing our part by staying at home and practising social distancing. The number of new cases have been slowly decreasing over the week and I really do hope that we will finally flatten the curve! And here I’d like to offer…

I hope everyone’s doing ok, considering the scary situation we are in now, fighting the Covid-19 as a Pandemic. Here in Malaysia, we are in the third week of our Movement Control Order. We have been…

Low Carb/Keto Maitake Mushrooms with Pancetta, Chili and Egg

It’s always nice to discover new ingredients to add to my cooking repertoire. Especially now that we only eat real food at home, working with fresh ingredients is paramount. Which is why I was excited to discover a new variety of mushrooms available locally in Klang Valley: Maitake Mushrooms. Maitake mushrooms are also called the…

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…

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…
