Clay Pot Chicken Rice

Dave constantly asking me to make clay pot rice and I my usual respond to him is “We don’t have a clay pot.” He tells me just cook the rice and all the other ingredients in the rice cooker. Apart from cooking rice, I have never cooked anything in my rice cooker before and I […]

Grilled Pork and Vermicelli Noodles (Bun Thit Nuong)

For updated photos on this recipe. When I invited a couple of friends over for a casual lunch, I never expected an extremely hot day (41°C). My plans for a backyard lunch so that the kids could play and run wild outside was foiled. Ten people in one room and my air conditioner struggled to […]

When I was living at home, mum would always serve soup at every dinner time. Her soups are mostly simple but tasty vegie soups. Now we hardly ever have soups, except when my mother in law come for her stays. She would pamper us with her very tasty and nourishing herbal soups almost every day. […]
