Slow Cooked Pork Belly in Soy Sauce

Last week was all about family with Chinese New Year’s vibe still lingering and perhaps because I still cannot get over the fact about how much I miss home during this celebration day. I still remember mom and dad took us to our late grandma (Ama)’s house at the farm few days (for sleep over…

Creamy Kransky Pasta

It has been awhile since my last post due to our long overdue family travel. I am now refreshed, fully recharged and although I am still adjusting to our routine after 4 weeks away from home and get pampered from our family back home , I think I am ready to share some of our…

Baby Squid in Sweet Soy Sauce

The spring is still in the air, the cool air still lingering and the kids have been taking turns to be sick (still are as I am writing this blog). I wish for the warmer weather soon so they recover quickly and we go back enjoying outdoor playtime. I cook this baby squid dish to…

Garlic & Honey Prawn

One of my favourite place to find inspiration for cooking is fish markets. It reminds me of those time when we go to local fish mongers during our visit to Dad’s prawn farm. You would see different type of fish that are not usually sold in our local supermarket. We would go home with our…

Kelepon

Back in my school days, I still remember when Mom would return from the local market (pasar) every Sunday and brought us various traditional sweets (jajanan¬†passer) which were colourful and delicious. There are some shops or market here in Sydney if we ever crave for some. But you know how cravings work, you just want…

Sate Maranggi

We are all so glad that spring is here, finally. Has not been that much fun this winter as the kids have taken turns being sick. Nothing much happened as well in the food experiment “department” and recipes writing as all I needed to do is to give as much care and made something simple…

Bitterballen Rice

Bitterballen is Dutch influenced food, which are basically round balls made out of mince meat (either chicken, veal or beef), butter, flour (to make roux) and seasonings. But this time, instead of using flour I made them with rice. They are similar to Italian meat balls ¬†-arancini in ingredients but also easy to make, a…

Tempe Penyet

We often taken things from granted until things are gone. I still remember on one school day that I wished mom would have made us food like fancy restaurants do and not just fried tempe/ tofu or stir fried vegetables. But this so called boring food back then has become many of childhood memories that…

Salmon spinach risotto

Italian food is one of the “super star” food in our home. Few reasons: it is easy (I could easily delegate the cooking to my husband when I am time poor), simple (because it requires few ingredients) and delicious (even my fussy eater loves it!). For anyone who wants something delicious but need something in…
