Ayam Cocoh

Star Q

My duty was to fetch our daughter who was coming home for the first time after her registration in one of the local universities.  It did not matter that it had only been slightly more than a week since then, or the fact that I had to wait for about one hour and fifteen minutes for her commuter train to arrive at the station.  I was just happy she was coming home.

Lasagna Bianca

Star Q

Our son and his wife usually comes home every fortnight, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, both of them were unable to keep up with that schedule.  Thus, after what seems like months, they finally had the opportunity to come home after four weeks.

Cranberry Cheese Cake

Star Q

I am one of those weekend bakers who most of the time like to try something new; once in a while.  I have always watched my kids snacking on dried cranberries but have personally never developed the urge or interest to sample a few.

Chicken with Ras el Hanout

Star Q

Sometimes I laugh at myself for being a bit peculiar compared to other people.  But on a second thought being peculiar or different from other people is not a bad thing after all; especially when I am not doing anything bad!

Flash Fried Courgetti with Chicken

Star Q

This is not really a new recipe.  In fact, the craze for courgetti or zoodles have all but faded away.  But I have finally found the time to download all food related pictures from my camera to my laptop.  It should not take too much of my time to do that, but I really couldn't find the time to sit down and do it.

Gulai Lemak Petai Kikis

Star Q

I really have to thank a friend for reminding me of this very old and traditional recipe.  I have actually forgotten about this dish, one which my mum used to make with different types of fish be they fresh water fish or your normal everyday fish caught from the sea.

Mac and Cheese 2.0

Star Q

I purposely call this dish Mac and Cheese 2.0 because the macaroni had been used to prepare two different types of dishes.  The first dish was where the macaroni was fried ala Malaysiana.  My wife had actually boiled a lot more macaroni than she wanted to use, so she kept the rest in the fridge.
