Malaysian curry leaf pesto

Malaysian curry leaf pesto

Given half a choice, I would choose to eat a plate of pesto spaghetti over an aglio olio. But basil leaves are not always easy to find, and pine nuts don’t come cheap. Since I have a tree in my garden, I usually make curry 

Miso and mushroom soul food pasta

Miso and mushroom soul food pasta

I usually cook a batch of Miso Pasta for Christmas. Not exactly your idea of typical Christmas food, I know, but my good friend’s daughter, Kay, loves this and the family usually spends Christmas Eve with us so I cook what makes us happy. It’s 

Savour True Aussie beef and lamb

Who else is missing dining in at restaurants and being able to enjoy a good piece of steak? During a recent virtual Beef Up Webinar & Tasting, we had a chance to savour Australian beef branded under True Aussie beef, for real as lunch was 

Mini seafood quiche in springroll cups

I still had all this cream in the fridge so decided to change up the normal quiche with a springroll cup as I had run out of pie pastry and was too lazy to make my own. Essentially, this is very similar to the frittata,

Comforting Apple Cinnamon Cake

Darn, just as I thought we had a Get-Out-of-Jail card and could be social beings again, it’s CMCO – Conditional Movement Control Order – and we have to stay put again to stay safe! Well, it’s back to the drawing board, or rather, the kitchen, 

Porkylicious grub Habanna Charbroil Steakhouse

Porkylicious grub Habanna Charbroil Steakhouse

I don’t know why I never ate at Habanna Charbroil Steakhouse before. It’s so nearby, the food is super reasonable and best of all, it celebrates all things porky! Well, better late than never, right? We tried 3 different dishes and were too stuffed to
