Cook with Ayden: Simple Fried Rice

We have left over rice from yesterday so I thought, “let’s fry it” and immediately our Little Chef Ayden said he wanted to learn to fry rice. That’s when I realised I have never teach him this simple survival dish – FRIED RICE. It will come in handy when he leaves home to further his studies in the distant future. My rule for fried rice is pretty simple; just make sure to use multiple coloured […]

Bitter gourd is one of the healthiest vegetables known to mankind but not many children like to eat it as the name suggests, it can be bitter!

Food Delivery: Epic Fit Meals

Everyday when I browse through my Facebook feeds, I often see people sharing their healthy meals. It’s like it is a trend these days to go to gym, eat clean, do meal prep and bring them to work for lunch. Even those who are not gym freaks often eat in their office pantry these days.

The boys love pizza but I am too lazy to make the pizza dough from scratch. When we have pizza at home, it is always the quick and easy cheat way – we use flatbread for our pizza base.  We love thin crust pizza so flatbread is actually perfect for this.  Since we bought our oven late last year, the boys have been enjoying pizza at home quite often.
