Recently have been going to Tropicana City Mall quite frequently for movie and also grocery shopping at Carrefour. Wow, to my surprise Carrefour has improved quite a lot, we found many products that we couldn’t find in the usual Tesco we went, and their fruits and vegetables are really fresh too even cheaper.
Then I saw they having promotion for the red potatoes and they do look fresh so I bought a few. Red potatoes are less starchy compared to Russet, and easier to cook. The red colour is pretty as well and its ideal for a quick salad.
First, cut the red potatoes into wedges, leave the skin on.
Then season the potatoes with olive oil, I use Chilli Olive Oil my boss bought for me from Italy, then some basil, salt and pepper. Mix Well
Bake for 15 minutes or until potatoes are soft. I throw in some leeks and rose scallions to bake too.
Then mix your own salad! Mine has some baked potatoes with leek, mustard chicken, spinach and thinly sliced yellow onions.
Does my salad looks oily? I use olive oil as a dressing, with a squeeze of lemon juice.Tweet

Show you my Marathon Bib! Cool huh! Will you wish me luck by the way?
As the Marathon day getting nearer, I am actually having cold feet as the thought of running in a marathon scares me. It has been a million years literally since I participated to run in a marathon. It was still school days the last I run a 10km and I am amaze at this age, I am game for this. Its crazy! What have I get myself into btw?
At first I was really excited when I registered for the run and started to train by running around the house compound to build my stamina. Then 3 weeks ago, I got lazy and have not train at all and last night I run again, 1 round and I got flat tire. Pamcit jor..how? How can I manage to finish such a long distance?
Arghh!!! I am extremely worried.
I wish I can finish the marathon without the need to flag down the shuttle bus to go back to the finish line. Will be really embarrassing right? haha
I guess, I am going for the Walkshakebutt SCKL Marathon 2011 instead.Tweet
I am sure everyone know what is Souffle. Maybe have not tasted one, but heard of the Souffle word at least. HK movies always show them so high class, order souffle as dessert geh!
But have you heard of Fried souffle? Again maybe not.
Perhaps it doesn’t sound rational to fried the souffle. Does the idea bother you?
Try not okay?! The fried souffle is on the savoury side, the sweet sugar is absent from this recipe.
First of all, beat the egg white by using the hand whisk until the egg whites are fluffy and stiff. I’ve got 4 egg whites in it, it turn out quite a lot, so I suggest 3 egg whites would be sufficient for 2 person.
The seperated egg yolks, add in salt, pepper, chilli flakes a bit ( I notice that I put chilli flakes in everything I cook ), if you have chicken cubes, maybe a half a cube, or you may add a teaspoon of fish sauce its all up to you. Finely chopped onion can be added too. Stir the egg yolk and whatever ingredients you want to put i.
Then fold in the egg mixure into the egg whites gently. Make sure its well combine try not to over ly done it or you’ll loose all the air in the egg souffle. Use a pan, drizzle over olive oil and pan fry the Egg souffle until golden brown.
Tadaa!! Fried Souffle done!
To serve the dish my way, make some bacon crumbly, add in nuts (I put here Pecan but not so nice, I think substitute with walnut would be better), some kwailo spinach, mushroom sauce (its actually Campbell Soup that I use so that I can drink the soup too). Malaysian being Malaysian, for the love of Chilli, you can eat this with Chilli sauce. Why not right? Kampung Koh Garlic Chilli lagi best. haha
Hope you will enjoy this recipe creation of mine! hahaTweet
These are the vegetable left at home. So I cut them in uniform size, small cubes. I need make a quick meal, its all unplanned and I have no time to waste for making the stew in an hour. Then I remembers I have the most useful pot on earth! The pressure cooker!! Jeng Jeng Jeng..bring out the Tefal Clipso Modulo to save my day.
For the meat, usually people use beef or lamb, I dont have any of it. The only meat I have in the freezer is pork. I always buy pork with skin on just in case I want to roast it, or make mince pork or make lard.
To make the stew, firstly sear all sides of the pork, add in several garlic cloves, dump in all the vegetable prepared earlier, add in a pinch of salt, pepper, herbs like basil and rosemary. Give it all a good fry allowing the herbs to infuse inside the pot.
Then add in half a bottle of red wine into the pot. Add another 500ml of chicken stock, close the lid of the pressure cooker and bring to boil. When the contents in the pressure cooker is boiling on high heat, reduce to low fire and continue boiling for 40mins.
After that, turn off the heat, and alllow the gas pressure to disperse slowly. It will take about 10-15 minutes. By now the meat is tender and cooked real well, the juice from the stew is really fragrant and sweet. The aromas is superb. Remove the meat from the pot and pull the meat to smaller pieces, or you can cut it into smaller chunks.
The juice from the stew is still watery now, so just use a tablespoon of flour, add with a bit of water to dissolve it nicely and pour it into the soup. Boil and keep stirring, add more salt if you like and then dump in all the chunky meat back to the stew.
A quick stir, and its ready to serve!Tweet
Yet another Simplish Meal, for Simple People like me, Simple Food, Simple Preparations and Simply Delicious.
- One small packet of cream
- 1 cup milk
- Pepper and salt to taste
- 4 slices of pancetta or substitute ( Proscuitto is not suitable for this dish)
- Bakers Potato, thinly slice
- Herbs like basil can be added
Firstly, drizzle a bit of olive oil on the casserole. Then line it with pancetta with the meat overhang outside the casserole. At the same time heat the cream and add in milk in a separate pot. Bring it to slightly below boiling point, add in herbs, pepper and salt to taste.
Then stack the potato slices in the casserole and pour in the cream mixture. Make sure the cream covers all the potatoes. With the pancetta overhang, just fold it back to the casserole, covering the potatoes like in the photo.
Slow bake the potatoes for 2 hours at 150 -170 C.
Also Hubby tried to make cocktail using the bottle of Cointreau he got for me recently. Use a shaker, add ice, mix Cointreau with Bombay Sapphire and Lemon Juice. Voila! You’ve got White Lady!
Recently I bought a good deal voucher online knowing that the voucher can be utilise for dine-in or getting the meat at the counter. Look at our selections of Chicken Sandwich Ham, Turkey Hams, Honey Glaced Ham, Pancetta, Bacons Affummicata Cotta, Salami Napoli and Brutwurst Sausages all for the price of RM54.90 only.
Got so excited over those meats, I decided to cook pasta again for dinner. Here’s the ingredients:
- Chilli Flavored Olive Oil
- Olive Oil Margarine
- Feta Cheese with Olive
- Courgette sliced
- Bird’s eye chilli finely chopped and seeds removed
- Bacon Slices
- 4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
- Rock Salt
- Chilli Flakes
Bring a large pot of salt water to boil, add a teaspoon of cooking oil and cook the spagetti to ‘al dente’. Follow the instruction printed on the package. Once cook, drain the spagetti but reserved 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water.
After that, heat the pan with Olive Oil Magarine add bacon and the chopped garlic and brown it. Set aside. With the heated pan cook the courgette until soft, you may add another knob of the margarine/ olive oil if the pan is too dry. When the courgette is cooked, throw in the bacons, garlic, chopped chillis, chilli flakes give it a good quick stir fry. Pour in 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water into the pan, and add the spagetti and stir thoroughly with all the ingredients. Do not reduce the heat, make sure the water is reduced and add salt to taste, then its done!Tweet
For those working ladies and gentlemen out there, if you are busy and want to make a meal that is so simple, yummy and equally satisfying to your taste buds and tummy, try this easy and simple recipe.
30 minutes is all you need.
Ingredients you need
- Grated Cheese (I use parmesan and mozarella)
- Sesame Seed
- Puff Pastry Sheet. I use a big square ones from Pampas available at all major supermarkets. I bought mine from Cold Storage.
Firstly, cut the puff pastry and leave it to thaw on a piece of parchment/baking paper. You need to use the baking paper so that its easier for you to roll it later and the puff pastry doesn’t stick. Then line the sausages and sprinkle parmesan cheese. Add a handful of mozarella cheese and roll the puff pastry as shown in the photos. You can also sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of the puff pastry.
Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Done!! Aiks sudah hilang 1 piece
Here! Here!! On my plate!Tweet
