Sandwich Bebola Daging Berkeju

Star Q

Sunday is a day to be lazy!  It's a day for me lounge around, lie down on the sofa, watching the programmes on television, one after another, even though my stomach is growling incessantly asking to be filled.  But I am too lazy to potter about in the kitchen!

Brussel Sprouts Kung Pao

Star Q

I had just gotten down from the bus and was making my way to the car booth sale nearby when I chanced upon a plot of land where someone, obviously with both of his (or her) thumbs green in colour, had obviously planted rows of vegetables.  And among them was this one healthy plant of brussel sprouts, standing proud, clamouring for attention.

Pasta Makanan Laut

Star Q

We have all but gotten a bit tired of having spaghetti carbonara, so much so that my kids don't request for them to be prepared anymore.  They tell me that with the instant carbonara sauces on sale (with many different brand names flooding the market!), they too can now make spaghetti carbonara on their own (even when I tell them never to use canned when you can easily make it from scratch!)

Scotch Eggs Mini dengan Nasi Lemak

Star Q

It's the weekend!  My kids and my daughter-in-law are home.  My better half had decided to wake up quite early on a Sunday morning to prepare Nasi Lemak with all the trimmings.  Tall order for a lazy Sunday morning, but no one has ever accused my wife of being lazy; certainly not me!

Ayam Rosemary Berempah

Star Q

Sometimes it feels good to have someone at home to request you to make some of their favorite dishes.  And on that note, I would like to stress on the word 'sometimes'!  Enjoyable they may be, but on certain occasions you may not feel up to taking any requests.

Moussaka Malaysiana

Star Q

It was a night just like other cold nights at Shire Oak Road.  The only difference was that night a few of us decided to gather at one of our flatmates kitchen, Marduati, to have a potluck.  I just knew I had to bring something different to the occasion which lead me to try making Moussaka.

Cheesy Mango Floats

Star Q

This is a belated entry because all the mangoes on my two trees have all but gone.  We have made every thinkable recipe using our mangoes, whether ripe or not.  We are quite fortunate this time around because we had an abundance of fruits to share with our friends, neighbours and in-laws.

Fish and Leek Pie

Star Q

My children always get the better of me when it comes to food, especially when they know that I am able to prepare the dishes that they want; be they from what I have stashed away at the back of my mind or by merely surfing through the net for recipes!
