Cook with Ayden: Ayam Pongteh Pressure Cooker

Several months ago, big bro Ethan shared with us how to cook this famous Peranakan dish – Ayam Pongteh. Big bro Ethan cooked it the conventional way – on the gas stove. Earlier this month we got ourselves a new toy, the new all-in-one cooker by Philips. It comes with sauté function as well as pressure cook (among many other functions) so we tried to cook Ayam Pongteh in it to see if it will […]

Little Chefs: Onde-Onde

If you have had the opportunity to dine with me especially during hi-tea buffet, you’ll know that I always, ALWAYS, eat onde-onde first. I love the feeling of the melted palm sugar that floods my mouth when bitten into. But good onde-onde is rather a rare find these days. The ones I ate are mostly just flour with very little gula melaka filling inside. What do you do when you are craving for one of your […]

Resipi Khas Bulan Puasa: Ayam Percik Pressure Cooker

As you have viewed in many of our past videos, Lil’ Chef Ayden had been using our rice cooker to cook a lot. Though the rice cooker does wonders, it takes a longer time to heat up especially when Ayden needs to saute and stir fry stuffs. Hence we decided to get a multi-cooker for him.  We got the new PHILIPS All-in-One Pressure Cooker as we read rave reviews over it online. It functions as a […]

Nuts about Sangkaya ice-cream

We brought the boys to Sunway Lagoon last Saturday. It was a super hot day so we decided to have some cold treats in Sunway Pyramid after that. We dropped by Sangkaya kiosk which is located opposite Nando’s and Guardian.  Sangkaya is nuts about coconut and is well-known for their ice-cream with coconut milk as the foundation. One of their new release is Gula Melaka ice-cream which I am madly in love with. It has that very […]

Confinement Food: Black Vinegar Pork Trotter

About 3 weeks ago, someone in our family gave birth ahead of time; catching us all of guard.  As she has no other family members here in PJ except us, I cooked some confinement food for her. It was my first time cooking confinement food and I somehow simply whacked as long as got ginger except the black bean soup lah. That one has no ginger in it. I also boiled red dates and longan […]

At RM88nett per adult with children paying half the adults’ price, their Brunch Buffet featuring both local and international buffet spread is also one of the more affordable deals around. What I love about Eastin Hotel is they never fail to arrange interesting […]

It took us two bakings to get it right back then. Now, it is my fail proof recipe come the holy month of Ramadan. I like to bake this for my neighbours during this time of the year and am glad they love it […]

Cook with Ayden: Sichuan Ma Po Tofu

Over the weekend, Ayden cooked something that got him sweating buckets. What is it that he dished out that made him sweat? It is his first time cooking Sichuan food – Ma Po Tofu. As we all know, Sichuan cuisine is well known for their bold and fiery flavours resulting from the use of garlic and Sichuan chili peppers but that did not deter Ayden from trying. He dished out this Ma Po Tofu the ‘cheat’ […]

My memories of Nyonya Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling)

My late grandmother made the best Kueh Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling) no doubt about that. I remember as a kid, I looked forward excitedly to that time of the year to eat her Kueh Chang. She’ll made them by the boxes and take a bus from Melaka to where we were back then, in Lumut, Perak as my father was with the Navy.  I anticipated her arrival with great delight as I know though I […]

Cook with Ayden: Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka dessert

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carotenes. We need carotenes as our body converts it into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for good eye vision and healthy skin; especially beneficial for school-going children. I try to include sweet potatoes into the boys’ diet as often as possible. Sometimes they eat it steamed on its own but at times when we have more time to spare, I’ll prepare this delicious Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka drink for […]

WTF – What Tasty Food @ Bangsar

I remember fondly back in those days when I was still living with my parents, my mom would cook vegetarian dishes every 1st and 15th of the month. I am not too sure the reason behind it as I was still in school back then and it was not a norm for me to question her choice of dishes.  Eating less meat can reap big health and environmental benefits but my family are not vegetarians, […]

Bake with Ayden: Rice Cooker Cheesecake

My family loves cheesecake a lot but we’ve never baked one ourselves as we don’t have an oven. We came across a rice cooker cheesecake recipe online recently and got excited to try it out. The only problem is, the recipe from Dingo Food is not in English and when I clicked on the translated version, it requires the use of FOUR DOGS! I reckon it will be such a hassle to catch 4 dogs. Moreover, […]
