How to Break Down a Butternut Squash

My Recipes
It's been a long time since I posted anything here :) Took me a while to figure out how to post but I'm happy to discover that there are some muscle memories left. To make a long story short, my first post in 2018 and might as well make it worth posting ? Indonesian Butter Cookies (Kue Semprit) because Chinese New Year is next month ✌️and this is one of my favorites. Recipe link in profile #cny2018 #cny #imlekcookies #cookieslover
Brown Rice & Lentil Porridge With Pumpkin And Sweet Corn
Bowls of warm #porridge made with short-grain brown rice, #pumpkins, #lentils, and sweet potatoes, sweet corn and served with fresh basil leaves and spicy peanuts and shrimp floss as toppings. Inspired by #Tinutuan (Manado-style porridge) in Indonesian. Happy tummies ❤❤ #whattocooktoday #asianfood #indonesianfood #manado #savory #comfortfood #bubur #kulinernusantara #wholesome #glutenfreefood
Chinese Savory Pork Pancakes
It's about time to make these pan-cooked Chinese savory pancakes (bing) again. These were filled with homegrown #chives, minced/ground pork, and garlic and served with black vinegar, soy sauce and chili oil. Even the little hands were itching to grab these. It's always near bed time when I feel like I can eat another meal 😰 I guess I'll just have to brush my teeth...and I promise I won't swallow the tooth paste 😌 #whattocooktoday #savorypancakes #asianfood #chinesefood #savory #snacks #comfortfood
Spicy Pumpkin Noodle Soup With Pork Belly
Homemade pumpkin noodles with spicy broth, slices of roasted pork belly, roasted pumpkin, #chickpeas and lava eggs.

Steak Skewers (sate Padang, Padang-style Satay)
My sister and I ate these sate Padang (originated from Padang, West Sumatra) almost every night for supper when we were kids. I used beef and ox tongue cooked in spices and herbs and the liquid is used to make the sauce. The sauce is not-peanut based. It's smooth and thick and incredibly aromatic from all the spices and herbs. Almost orangey or red in color due to turmeric and chili. Usually served with rice cakes and I like mine with some crunchy pork rind to scoop up that sauce 😍 . They are sold in push carts that passed by our house every night and served on banana leaves. Needless to say it's one of my most favorite childhood food ever !! I got this recipe from an Indonesian friend @hariqhuang (incredibly talented with drawings👌) Thank you so much. I'm definitely walking down that memory lane. I'm happy to introduce this to my kids. They too, love sate padang 👍 Now it's time to 😴 and stop thinking about food 😱 #whattocooktoday #sate #satay #satepadang #chicarrones #asianfood #indonesianfood #southeastasianfood #spicy #savory #streetfood
Cracklings With Roasted Pork Belly
Roasted #porkbelly with that crackling skin always goes down a treat in this house. Because the husband has agreed to watch Outlander series with me (still catching up) he got his roasted pork belly (ok..just joking ). Because I do kinda love my family 😆😏 I didn't even bother to score the skin and did all the extra work I thought would make the skin crackles. That whitish salt crust is a game changer here. Have a wonderful day/night ❤ #whattocooktoday #roastedpork #siuyuk #asianfood #chinesecuisine
Curry Noodle Soup With Shrimp
It's been too long since I posted some 🍜 So here are curry noodle soup. One of the bowls uses zoodles (because I have a #spiralizer and will spiralize pretty much everything I possibly can 😬). The soup base is made of Thai red curry paste and #coconutmilk. My favorites are the addition of the bean curd puffs. Just so good with curry type dishes. And of course the dish is not complete without an #egg and the #shrimp. Have a great Tuesday ❤❤ #whattocooktoday #semihomemade #easycooking #redcurry #noodlesoup #zoodles #beancurd #comfortfood #asianfood
Dorayaki With Black Bean Paste And Matcha Cream Cheese Fillings

I can down these pancakes on their own without any fillings too. They are the kids' favorites too. Recipe is on the blog now. Have a great day everyone ❤❤ #whattocooktoday #homemade #dessertforbreakfast #morningslikethese #asianfood #japanesefood #japanesesweets #meatlessmonday
Pasta, Bacon & Egg Waffles
It's definitely feeling like Fall this but still pleasant for a walk to the Farmer's Market ❤ Now I'm happy to have extra noodles/pasta and rice. Because I can cook them up in the waffle maker with some #bacon and #eggs for breakfast the next day 😀 and with some #sriracha. Enjoy you Saturday and long labor day weekend 😘 #easyrecipe #howisummer #labordayweekend
Singapore Minced Pork Noodle
Tonight I need my noodle fix. I've been missing this egg noodles tossed in sauce and served with braised #shiitake mushroom and minced #pork. I love it with pig's liver and pork balls too. But I didn't have both. But I'm never out of #wontons 😂. So just had to make do with what I had but cravings are satisfied. It's called minced pork noodle (bak chor mee) in Singapore. I love it with thick egg noodles ✌ Have a great night/day everyone ❤❤ #whattocooktoday #asianfood #sgfoodies #sgfoodporn #hawkerfood #noodlelover
