Greek Yoghurt Lime Cake in Rice Cooker

In less than 48 hours, I have dropped out of the Gin Mare Digital Detox challenge. I recently accepted a challenge from Gin Mare to find technology stressed people in Europe. I had to disconnect from the social media for 72 hours and in that duration, the number of...


Guacamole and Fried Yuca

Guacamole ingredients are avocado, tomato, coriander, onion, lime and olive oil. I have seen another variation which uses cucumber. When using cucumber, scrap the middle of the cucumber or else the guacamole can be very watery. You might think, “would it be better with or without the cucumber?”. Well,...


Ayam Kapitan (Chicken Curry Kapitan)

Slow Cooked Lemon Garlic Chicken

Happy 2015 everyone! Are you still on festive eating? I was surprised how I loved Christmas pudding this year. I thought I could get some bargain ones especially after Christmas but there were none in the supermarkets. Not even a tiny pudding for one! Whoever bought them all, are...


Roasted Tomato Soup II

Merry festivities everyone! It’s the festive of eating it is. If you have done the Christmas dinner for the family, I applaud you. All the trouble you had gone through to ensure that the turkey (or whatever meat) was cooked through and not dried out, the stuffing was not...
