Ooey Gooey Microwave Chocolate Cake

CAUTION: This is NOT a healthy cake! If you’re looking for some indulgence. If the last time you had cake was 2 months ago. If you don’t mind going on the tread mill for another hour, this cake is for you. Yes, you’ve seen them floating around the internet for the past few years. Most…

Portuguese Chicken

When my taste buds crave for excitement, there is only 1 go-to recipe! Peri Peri chicken.. you know… spicy, lemony, exciting! My husband has Portuguese blood in him this is on our menu regularly. He says its like so exciting, it is like an aphrodisiac! How blessed I am!  Should I be cooking this more?

Peach and Mango Yoghurt Muffins – Low fat, low sugar

Chwee Kueh

Wikipedia describes it as: “Chwee kueh (or chwee kway) (Chinese: 水粿 literally “water rice cake”) is a type of steamed rice cake, a cuisine of Singapore and Johor.” Of course it is cheap in Singapore. A mere dollar and I get to enjoy it immediately. But nothing beats making it with your own hands. Eating…
