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 […]

It is the school holidays so I got both the boys to cook together. Since our Muslim friends are observing the holy month of Ramadan, the dish we’ll be sharing today is one that is popular during the fasting month – Roti John Sardin. Roti John is an omelette sandwich. Meat is usually added but we prefer to use sardine since my mom has been making it this way for us since young. This hassle […]

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 […]

Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes

We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body. I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from […]

It is a popular soup dish called Ayam Masak ‘O’.  One of the quickest and easiest soup to prepare, it is easily a favourite among children as well as adults with its soupy gravy, soft potatoes and flavorful chicken with lots of ginger.

Little Ayden is getting really comfortable with our rice cooker these days. He uses it to bake cakes and recently cooked a chicken dish in it. I saw how easy it was to cook using the rice cooker and decided to let him try cooking Chicken Stew in it. There is a whole lot of ingredients required to cook this Chicken Stew but these are mostly basic stuffs that you’ll usually have ready in your kitchen on […]

Cook with Ethan: Bendi Goreng Bawang Belacan

After all the cooking videos I did for Ayden, I think it is only fair to have one for Ethan too. That boy has been so occupied with school, homework, co-coriculum and more that I hardly have time to speak to him on weekdays  Just a blink of an eye, Ethan is already 9 going to be 10 this year. He is growing up fast before my very eyes so I better take more pictures […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Satay Buah Keras

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I did a live Peranakan cooking demo at The Straits Hotel and Suites, Melaka. One of the dish we cooked is Ayam Satay Buah Keras. Today, Ayden cooked the same dish at home but instead of using the wok, he used the rice cooker because he is too young to be handling a wok and a gas stove. If you wish to try cooking this dish, do […]

Popular Chinese New Year Snack : Chicken Floss Roll

Chicken Floss Roll is one of the more popular Chinese New Year snack around. It is extremely addictive that once you start, you’ll find it difficult to stop eating them. It is also expensive to buy them so I decided to resume making them this year. I used to make this every year before I have kids. The boys are pretty okay on their own these days so I can sneak some time making one […]

Homemade Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle

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

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

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 […]
