Homemade Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

It’s been quite some time since we last made some frozen popsicles. It’s been raining almost every evening but who says we can’t have frozen popsicles on a cool, rainy day? :P  So I took out a packet of blueberries from the fridge, soaked, rinsed and dumped them into my blender with freshly squeezed apple juice and yogurt.  Give it a few swirl until the yogurt turned a pinkish purple. No, it’s not going to […]

Easy DIY Snickers Ice Popsicle

Easy DIY Sneakers Ice Popsicles recipe 8

I have a Snickers bar sitting in my fridge for months. I did not allow the kids to eat it actually coz it’s too sweet. We had two. We got it during our stay in Aloft KL back in March. It came complimentary with the room. The kids ate one yet they can’t finish it so I did not let them eat this one. I was wondering what to do with it when I suddenly […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Steamed Chocolate Banana Cake

delicious simple Rice cooker cake steamed banana cake

Darling bought me a new toy. The rice cooker that I have been using to cook porridge for Ethan and now Ayden has finally died so he bought me a new one. It comes with a CAKE function so today I excitedly tried to bake a cake using it as my oven at home is rendered unusable for ages. For a mother of two, you’d think that I would have everything in my kitchen but […]

Homemade Red Bean Popsicle

Homemade red bean ais krim potong DIY 3

It’s time to make popsicles again and this time, we are making red bean popsicle. Growing up, my favourite ais krim potong flavours are kacang merah, durian and jagung. I also like cendol and yam. I have tried making sweet corn popsicle and it turned out really well. You can refer to my popsicle posts here: http://www.submerryn.com/2015/06/easy-homemade-frozen-popsicles-recipe.html Let’s start with our red bean popsicle now. First, we need to make red bean paste.  But before […]

Constipation relief : Papaya and corn soup

Papaya and corn soup

Ethan doesn’t eat fruits. If I don’t make him eat enough fiber I’m afraid he’ll get constipated one fine day. What I can do however, is to boil papaya soup for him regularly. He doesn’t know it is papaya soup though because I boiled it with corn and the sweetness of the corn actually camouflage the papaya taste (if any). Papaya is one of the best fruit to eat if you suffer from digestive problems […]

Homemade Sweet Corn Ice Popsicle

homemade sweet corn popsicle

After my first attempt of making the highly successful and delicious banana chocolate ice popsicle that is a huge hit with the kids, I am more confident to try on other healthy treats. Since the kids love corn, I thought of making sweet corn ice popsicle as we always buy sweet corn ais krim potong.  Ingredients needed are just a cob of sweet corn, a glass of fresh milk, a teaspoon of sugar and a […]

Homemade Banana Chocolate Ice Popsicle

homemade banana choco popsicle 4

Went back to my in-law’s place last weekend and got a whole lot of ripe bananas. Would be so awesome if I can bake banana cake with these but my oven is still not working so I have to think of other ways to quickly use them up. Ripe bananas that will bruise the next day. Must eat them up quickly! Let’s make a healthy ice treat.  I took two, strip them naked and placed […]

WORLDFOODS Yellow Curry Recipe

WorldFoods Yellow Curry Paste Recipe3

I’ve mentioned numerous times that the long school holiday means being extra busy in the kitchen whipping out one pot wonders for the family. Why one pot? Because having a 15 months old toddler with me limits whatever time I can spend in the kitchen so I try to cook only fast and convenient food for them without compromising on the quality and nutrition of the food. One of my ‘speciality’ is this simple non-baked […]

We are just at the end of week one of the long holidays and I’m already running out of ideas on what to cook! My boys, they are crazy. Constantly hungry, I need to feed them every 2 hours or so. Growth spurt? I’m not too sure but whatever it is, I need something quick but instant noodle is not the answer. I browsed the internet and found this simple 3 Ingredient Mac and Cheese recipe […]

A Color A Day Porridge For Babies

Rainbow porridge for babies

Ayden is exactly 11 months now and I am very thankful that he is still enjoying his porridge. I try to make his porridge more interesting by having color themes during weekdays. Weekends will be colorful rainbow porridge. The reason I make color themed porridge is for Ayden to be able to taste the different core ingredients throughout the week and not be bored down with the usual mix of everything. It’s also a great […]

Easy Homemade Chicken Stock for Babies

homemade chicken stock for babies

Since Ayden started eating solid food, I’ve been cooking porridge for him every day without fail. You can check out some of the porridge recipes here. He’ll be 11 months old in a week’s time and I want to add varieties into his meals. I am feeling like feeding him pasta so I boiled chicken stock. Homemade chicken stock is better for babies instead of those commercial ones as it is not encouraged to feed […]

Green Bean with Sago Dessert (Bubur Kacang Hijau)

green bean dessert bubur kacang hijau

I am on a tong sui frenzy and have been boiling a different tong sui every day for the past couple of weeks mainly due to the scorching weather we are experiencing lately. I’ve been repeating Barley, Loh Han Guo, Red Bean and Black Glutinous Rice and Sweet Peanut Soup as these are clearly Ethan’s favourite. I have always wanted to boil green bean or mung bean soup but always ended up procrastinating as both […]

Homemade Chicken Essence

Home Cooked Chicken Essence_8

Lately I’ve been feeling fatigued and Darling said I look pale too. Maybe because I’ve not gotten enough rest when both the kids are down recently. He wanted to buy ready made chicken essence for me but I don’t want them. I told him I’ll make my own chicken essence so everyone in the family can drink it too. Chicken essence can reduce mental fatigue. It is also beneficial for students ie Ethan. I heard […]

Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet Recipe

homemade ginkgo barley dessert

I love drinking sweet desserts. Apart from my favourite red bean with black glutinous rice dessert, my another all-time favourite is my mom’s Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet. I’ve never boiled this myself because I’m just too lazy to shell and remove the ginkgo core. Here’s how my mom makes it: Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet Ingredients: Barley Shelled Ginkgo with core removed. Bean Curd Sheet / Fu Chok. Make sure it’s the […]

Papaya Red Dates Milk Booster Soup

Papaya red dates soup milk booster

Six years ago I failed in my breastfeeding journey with Ethan. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and determination. Fast forward to present, I read (and try) everything possible to boost my milk supply so I can fully breastfeed Ayden. I learned the importance of direct latching as demand = supply. I also browsed the internet for lactating soups and consumes them regularly to keep myself well-nourished. One of the most popular milk […]

Postpartum hair loss. How many of you suffered from it after delivering your baby? I had it, TWICE, both with Ethan and Ayden. This was what greeted me every morning. It scares the heck out of me as I really thought that I’ll be going bald. I confided in a friend about my worries and she gave me this hair growth recipe to try. She said it will help restore my crowning glory. Ingredients: 50g […]

Since the arrival of Ayden, I don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen anymore but I can’t stand eating out all the time so I try my best to prepare something convenient yet nutritious – soup. I am also fully breastfeeding Ayden so soup is one of the major milk booster for me. Today’s soup is the simplest of  the lot – Chinese Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup. A popular soup […]

Chinese New Year Snack : Seaweed Roll

seaweed roll

For the past couple of years (or maybe slightly more) I’ve not been making anything for Chinese New Year. I was always busy with Ang Pow decor workshops that I hardly have time to be in the kitchen. This year though, I tried making at least ONE snack and the chosen snack is non other than the simplest of the lot – Seaweed roll. Nori sheets, popiah skin and egg white. That’s all we need […]

Cucur Ikan Bilis Recipe (Anchovies Fritters)

Cucur ikan bilis recipe_4

Cucur Ikan Bilis or Cekodok Ikan Bilis is many Malaysians’ favourite snack for tea. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they won’t last long on the kitchen table as we would usually gobble them all up in no time. With the holy month of Ramadhan approaching really soon, I believe cucur ikan bilis will be sold widely in Bazaar Ramadhan everywhere. I remembered buying them each time I frequent a Ramadhan Bazaar.  […]

Simple Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Chocolate Smoothie_1

Whenever we go out shopping, Ethan will always request to purchase a cup of smoothie. That cup of smoothie can be quite costly and at the rate Ethan and I hang out at the mall (EVERY day!) I can go bust any time! Ethan and his must-have smoothie. But ever since I got my PapaBlend blender, we’ve been making smoothies often at home. It is much more economical to buy your own fruit and yogurt […]

Simple Homemade Burger Patty Recipe

Homemade burger patty

Burger joints are mushrooming around the Klang Valley lately. It makes me crave for burgers day and night but Darling doesn’t bring me there mostly because their burger patties are made of beef and both Darling and Ethan do not take beef :( Now that I’m a mother, hygiene and health is another factor. We never know what goes into their burger patties. Unlike those days when I was in college and survived on frozen […]

Simple Omelette Wrap Recipe

I’ve never tried making wraps before but each time I ordered a sandwich in Subway and looking at their wraps makes me want to have a try! So the other day while grocery shopping I took the ‘courage’ and bought a pack of wholemeal Mission Wrap to try making my very own omelette wraps. You know me, I’ll try making it as simple as possible as I don’t like spending too much time in the […]

Pan-fried Salmon with Garlic Buttered Mushroom Recipe

Garlic buttered mushroom salmon

When Ethan was younger, I always cook salmon for him. I stopped when he grew older. I don’t know why (maybe because salmon is costly) we just stopped eating salmon for several years now until today. We were in AEON Supermarket when I spotted their salmon selling at 50% less. Bought several packs home and immediately started cooking dinner. Ingredients: Salmon Greens of your choice (Broccoli, Carrot & Corn) Garlic spread Parsley Since the salmon […]
