Weekend is here! Just got back from a holiday down under, settled down and I’am back for more cooking!  It was a good vacation driving along the Great Ocean Road, while enjoying the magnificent coastal scenery with the whole family, we shift to different airbnb houses each day, from a pleasant one to the not so pleasant stay. We definitely got it all covered. I would probably blog about my vacation there soon if anyone will be interested to read about it. Nevertheless, got the chance to catch up with some best friends and relatives in both Melbourne and Sydney.  (more…)

Do you know what is my worst vice? Gluttony. I am feeling really chubby this week. Food is like a drug to me, I just kept wanting more and more. I eat when I’m happy and sad. Food gives me comfort, but I do sometimes regret after the late night full meal supper or a whole bar of chocolates and a tub of ice cream. It’s very fascinating or confusing which ever you prefer that human being eat based on their mood. With all the junk food and late night supper, suddenly my appetite crave for vegetables or healthy dish. Therefore, I introduce you the Stir Fry Soba Noodles.

Dine In On Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Steak Recipe

Cuisine: Western   |   Prep time: 30 minutes   |   Cook time: 20 minutes   |   Serve: 2 persons.

Valentine’s Day is here! It wouldn’t be official without a nice meal together with your partner, but these ‘nice meals’ would usually cost a bomb on this special day. Even flowers on this day are twice the price of what you would get on any other day. To be honest, having a nice meal doesn’t mean you need to splurge on some fancy restaurant. Just spare some time and effort. Cooking with love is something that your partner would definitely appreciate, which is much better than blindly hurting your bank account.

This recipe for Valentine’s Day is simple and yet impressive. However, if you still feel like splurging on the love of your life, you may consider whipping up this meal for them on their birthday or your anniversary instead. As usual, there are no fancy ingredients. Everything is pretty easy to find at your most convenient supermarket.

Hello There!

Hello there! My name is Madeline. Many of my close friends know me as Maddie. I was born and raised in Malaysia and I recently moved to Singapore in search of new adventures. I may not be a full-fledge chef, but I do love to indulge in cooking and eating.

My love for cooking developed during my primary school days where I was tasked to cook fragrant white rice for my family daily. I carried out the daily duty with a lot of passion till I was in high school, where I decided to take my skills further. I get my inspiration from online cooking shows and recipe books, which sometimes lead me to being hungry in the middle of the night. (more…)
