When I saw the recipe for pearl couscous on Belle from Ooh Look’s blog, I commented that I was intrigued as to what they would taste like and thanks to Liz from Haystac, I received a sample to try. Pearl couscous (also known as Israeli couscous) is different from normal couscous, being much larger in […]


Yum cha dumplings from Hong Kong Dim Sum, Glen Waverley

A couple of months ago, I bought some frozen prawn dumplings (har gao) from Box Hill which turned out to be a disappointment but some of my lovely readers pointed out some other places where I could buy yum cha dumplings from. One of these places was Hong Kong Dim Sum in Glen Waverley, along […]


I thought it was hilarious when Jessica Simpson was asked if she wanted a buffalo wing, (on Newlyweds – please don’t judge but I watched every episode of the four seasons!), responded “No thanks, I don’t eat buffalos.” Ah, Jessica, buffalos don’t have wings! I have since found out it is quite common for the […]


Recipe: Zucchini Slice

I never grew up eating zucchini so I am not a big fan of eating it on its own. Lately though, I have been adding it to dishes like my glass noodle minced pork. Zucchini actually doesn’t taste of much when it is mixed up with other ingredients in a dish but at least I […]

A while back I planted some spring onion seedlings and in what seemed like no time, they sprouted and were ready to harvest… all at the same time! I turned to trusty Google to find a recipe that called for a lot of spring onions and decided on a spring onion pancake. I’m not sure […]


Homemade Chinese Barbecue Pork

Another easy weeknight meal I make once in a while is Chinese BBQ pork (char siu). When eating out at a Chinese restaurant, I tend to stay away from BBQ pork, but that is because most of the time it is overcooked, dry and hard. The BBQ pork I make at home is always moist, […]


Contrary to a lot of my posts, hubby and I do cook meals at home. It’s just that most of the food we cook is not exactly blog-worthy! On weeknights, hubby and I eat pretty simply and like to have dinner done and dusted by 7.30pm – well that’s the plan anyway. This means that […]


Prawn Dumplings at home

in Cooking, Ready made

Hubby and I love our prawn dumplings (har gao) as you can probably tell from my recent yum cha entries! However yum cha with only two of us usually ends up with us waddling out of the restaurant because we have eaten too much! It would be good if we could find some yum cha […]


Prawn linguine & garlic bread

in Cooking, Pasta, Recipes

I have recently discovered excellent quality prawns at Safeway for a very reasonable price. I find the quality better than what I can get at Victoria Market and the price is the same, if not cheaper. The best part is that you can request the frozen prawns, which means it is even fresher. Once prawns […]
