Theme: Tangy Cookbook: The New Mrs Lee’s Cookbook: Nonya Cuisine by Mrs Lee Chin Koon A few years ago, I got hubby cooking classes with Tony Tan for his birthday. My boss thought it was hilarious that I was buying hubby a present that was actually benefitting me, but he failed to understand that hubby […]


Theme: Rice Cookbook: Everyday Favourites by Mrs Leong Yee Soo The obvious choice for rice theme week would have been fried rice or risotto, but I’ve strayed away from using the rice grain and used rice flour for my Cookbook Challenge recipe this week. Fried radish cake is better known as fried carrot cake or […]


Theme: BBQ Cookbook: Australian Family Favourites I had no time this week to do the Cookbook Challenge but I didn’t want to fall further behind so I asked whether hubby was interested in doing it on my behalf on Sunday while I was at the food bloggers’ conference. I told him he would need to […]


Theme: Vietnamese Cookbook: Secrets of the Red Lantern by Pauline Nguyen I’m a week behind in the Cookbook Challenge but shall be aiming to catch up by the end of this week! Week 17’s theme was Vietnamese and it prompted me to look back through my 2007 Vietnam trip photos. We weren’t into food as […]


Theme: Noodles Cookbook: Fast Chicken by The Australian Women’s Weekly I have fallen behind in my posting – I really don’t know where all my spare time goes! I think I have also partly lost my blogging mojo and blogging has become a bit of a chore rather than something I enjoy! Not to worry […]


Theme: Muffins Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Bake At a recent Australian Day BBQ where I brought along Oreo cupcakes, a few of us were discussing the difference between muffins and cupcakes. They seem to be interchangeable terms with the paper wrappers and look relatively similar, especially when muffins have wrappers. After some Googling, we […]


Theme: Japanese Cookbook: delicious. quick smart cook by Valli Little I absolutely love Japanese food, but don’t actually own one single Japanese cookbook! There aren’t many Japanese only cookbooks available for sale at department stores and the ones I have seen don’t really appeal to me. I know how to make sushi and sashimi and […]


Theme: Love Cookbook: Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan Love was an appropriate theme for this week’s Cookbook Challenge with Valentine’s Day this week. Valentine’s Day this year also happens to fall on the same day as Chinese New Year’s Day so it was a busy weekend for us! I wanted to […]


Theme: Eggs Cookbook: The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander This week should be an easy week to find a recipe because eggs in recipes are so common. The hard part was picking just one recipe to make! I made an absolutely heavenly rich chocolate ice cream, cooked custard style but it didn’t photograph well, so […]


Theme: Mixed Cookbook: delicious. quick smart cook by Valli Little Inspiration abandoned me this week and on Friday night I was still thinking of what to make. Then I realised that I wouldn’t have much time for cooking this weekend so ideally I would have to make something on the Friday night. The first thing […]
