Ayam Panggang Mudah / Simple Roast Chicken

Star Q

Here's another situation where I have to come up with another roast chicken recipe simply because we have exhausted the ones we have in our repertoire.  It's chicken again since all the kids are home and chicken seem to go down well with everyone in this household; well, depending on the recipe of course!

Ikan Bilis Goreng Tepung / Fresh Anchovy Fritters

Star Q

It's the third week of the new school year and there has been quite a number of public holidays dotted along the week.  This week itself, there were three public holidays.  So, when you add the two-day weekend, you actually have five holidays and only two school day!  Yay!

Vanilla Melty Hershey

Star Q

My wife's niece called from Seremban this morning saying that she would be dropping by on her way to her mother-in-law's house in Labis.  It is natural for her to be a bit frantic when she is informed about someone's impending visit, especially with regards to what to serve to the guests.

Kari Senangin a la My Mom's / My Mom's Fish Curry

Star Q

This is the Fish curry I was talking about in my previous entry which I said would go well with the four-angled bean salad or Kerabu Kacang Botol.  What makes this curry so special that I wanted to immortalize it in my blog is because I finally got my late mum's recipe to a 'T' (at least I think so!)

Kerabu Kacang Botol Dengan Kerang

Star Q

Once in a while I have to have something traditional and this salad or kerabu is as close to traditional I can muster today.  Too lazy to make anything else to go with the Fish Curry I am making today (next entry!), so I thought this kerabu would go well; and in fact, any local kerabu usually goes well with our local curry.

Twice Baked Potatoes

Star Q

I remember having my first ever jacket potatoes when I was with some friends at Leeds Market way back when.  The autumn weather was quite cold (to us at least!)  and even though we had already had our breakfast before visiting the market, we were already feeling very hungry.  The sight of heavy steam coming from the stalls selling food seemed as if they were beckoning for us to come near.

Aubergine-Layered Lasagna

Star Q

I definitely believe that there is always something for me to learn every day when I read.  It doesn't really matter what I read; it can be magazines, newspapers, novels or even blogs or journals.  And the things that I learn from these materials that I read don't necessarily have to be something that changes the world.  It can be something like food nutrition.
