Florian and I decided that every weekend, we'll spend time together in the kitchen making a nice dinner for the four of us. I'm cooking most evenings which I'm thoroughly enjoying. I'd like to think we've been having mostly good meals, definitely more healthful considering I'm stingy with salt and oil. Most recently, Mum and … Continue reading Recipes: Mediterranean Night.
There are two ways of cooking mee siam here in Singapore. One has gravy and is more commonly found, especially at the Malay stalls in the Hawker centres, and the other is a dry mee siam which comes more from the Peranakans. Interestingly, mee siam actually refers to Siamese noodles, although is bears little resemblance … Continue reading Dry Mee Siam.
Managed to spend this week blessing friends with fresh loaves of bread. I don't know if it's a blessing for them or whether it's unfortunate having to be my guinea pigs. I'm glad they happily received the breads and have gone through a few slices already. Flaxseed bread. Still not making perfect breads but I … Continue reading Recipe: Earl Grey Scones.

Last weekend, hubsy got back into the kitchen and baked up another German classic - hazelnut cake. The ground hazelnuts were brought back from his last visit to Germany and I wanted him to use it up quick lest it go rancid in our heat and humidity. But first, BREAD! I've been playing around quite … Continue reading Recipe: German Haselnusskuchen

Then, I decided that if I baked for them too often, they may take it … Continue reading Recipe: Cinnamon Banana Bread.
One week ago, Florian and I finally managed to dine at Restaurant Zén. It was our highly anticipated meal of the year and a very belated celebration for his promotion. We're only a third into 2020 and I am sure of this being the most anticipated of the year because Restaurant Zén has already won … Continue reading Restaurant Zén, Bukit Pasoh Road.

We had some tins of 'just past their best-by date' beans and decided we may as well use them before they got way overdue. I'm not usually fussed about expired stuff and prefer to trust my eyes, nose and tongue before throwing it out. You can tell on sight if it looks wrong - bloated … Continue reading Recipe: Chilli.
