    Cream Cheese Garlic Bread (육쪽마늘빵)

    I love Korean street food! I came to know about Cream Cheese Garlic Bread when I came across a video of a Korean shop selling these babies. It looks so good that I knew I had to recreate it the next day!   I decided to make the bread from scratch instead of getting off shelves so it could look as authentic as how the Koreans are selling. I can tell you that it was damn good! My mum hates anything with cheese, I left half a slice for her to try it out thinking she would only take a bite. Guess what, she finished everything and told me it…

    Foolproof Scrambled Eggs

    Back to basic, to make scrambled eggs. It’s easy. But to make it perfect, not everyone can do that. I will show you my Foolproof Scrambled Eggs. The secret for the perfect scrambled eggs is, milk. Not cream, not water but milk! Cream is great, rich and creamy. But, cream makes the eggs too dense and rich. Not good, too rich and you will be off after a few bites. Water makes the eggs fluffy, which is great! But lack of milky taste. Too dull! Not good too. Milk on the other hand, is… perfect! Not too rich and creamy but yet makes the eggs fluffy delicious. Yum!

    Homemade Unsweetened Applesauce

    Back to basics, today’s recipe will be some delicious homemade applesauce! Serve it with a main dish, use it in baking or even just eat it as a plain dessert. There are so many ways to eat applesauce.  Some like with cinnamon, some like with extra sugar or honey. For me, I prefer to eat it just as it is. I will also be using this recipe for my upcoming Fat-free Almond Muffins. So stay tuned!

    Chinese Steamed Egg (蒸水蛋)

    This simple yet silky dish is commonly eaten throughout most chinese households with rice.  Yet, not all households can make this smooth and creamy silky savory custard. What’s my secret? Soy milk, unsweetened. Why? I don’t know, my Aunt told me this and I do as I told. No questions asked. The result is important! Not only it is smooth and creamy, soy milk also adds richness to the flavor. It’s like heavy cream in western dishes!

    Thai Basil Rice – Thai Vegetarian

    Nobody is going to believe me that this is vegetarian. This vegetarian Thai Basil Rice has all the essentials of a normal pork Thai basil rice that makes it so real. Lots of garlic and onion are added to simulate our tongue to make it taste ‘meaty’. And once you freeze and thaw your Tawkua (Firm tofu), the whole texture will change. It will be slightly chewier and you will have to squeeze the water out, so that later your ‘meat’ will not be soggy. Sure you can go ahead and use a normal Tawkua, but if you have the time to freeze it. Why not?

    French Toast Hong Kong-style (港式 西多士)

    I would always order french toast when I visit a Hong Kong cafe. I love the fluffiness of the bread that has been fried with egg sandwiched with thick layer of peanut butter and drizzled with condensed milk. In my version however, I like to add some mozzarella cheese as I like the combination of peanut butter and cheese. But you would usually get Peanut Butter or Kaya spread in Hong Kong Cafes. I also used maple syrup but you can use condensed milk or golden syrup. If you want to make those really thick layer of Hong Kong french toast that you had in their cafe, double the recipe!…
