After 3 days of vomiting and retching with zilch appetite, Alycia’s appetite is slowly returning today. For 3 days, everyone at home has been eating porridge and vermicelli cooked with minimal oil and meat. According to the paed’s suspicion, Alycia has been attacked by some kind of virus. You know doctors, when they cannot be […]
Grandma made a batch of pumpkin buns just before dinner. My bread-crazed Cass announced to grandma that she ain’t going to eat rice and only wanted to eat mien pau (bread in Mandarin) with homemade kaya and cheese. So while the rest of us had rice with yummy homecooked dishes, Cass had bread and I […]

Today the mil and the hubs’ aunt brought Alycia and Sherilyn to Mid Valley Megamall for lunch and shopping. Hubs was at a client’s function and so could not bring them out. And I was just too lazy to go out as we have been going out almost everyday during the CNY holiday. I just […]

Here’s the fuss-free, sweat-free and easy to prepare dinner that I dished out for dinner yesterday.
Roast chicken drumsticks (pre-chopped into bite size) with garlic, onion, tomato and red bell pepper. In the morning, I marinate the chicken with HP sauce, soy sauce, Manuka honey, pepper, mixed herbs and some left over red wine in the […]
For the kids’ lunch today, I was undecided whether to cook green tea noodles with the new sauce that I had bought from Isetan or mushroom pasta. Since the punnet of button mushrooms had been sitting in the fridge for over 1 week already, I thought I should just use it before they turn black. […]
Here is our dinner for tonight, which I have already prepared at 4:40pm, as rascal #2 has ballet at 6:30pm. For time-challenged WFHMs, there will be lots of one-pot meals without stir-frying, shallow or deep frying. The lesser washing and oil splatters the better… and the food is healthier too.
Steamed chicken drumsticks in tong kwai […]
Mushroom pasta cooked with Campbell’s mushroom soup is one of my kids’ favorite lunch meals. I normally add in 2 punnets of fresh button mushrooms, onions and sometimes chopped carrots. This time, I cooked it with pan fried fish, to pump up their protein and DHA intake.
After briefly pan-frying the fish in a non-stick pan […]
My 3 girls are big fans of noodles, especially #2 and #3. There is a noodles dish on my kids’ menu at least 3-4x in a week as it is pretty simple and quick to prepare. My noodles dishes come in a variety of styles. Braised pork ribs with egg noodles is a new addition […]
