Spicy Shredded Fish Manado Style (Pampis Cakalang Pedas)

As my motto goes, I’d give any attempt for being healthy a try. If the attempt to do be healthy can be done in a relatively easy effort with logical reasoning, I am more than up for giving it a go. Such is the case with JJ Smith’s 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse program. Excerpted from […]

Mac n Cheese a la MPW (with My Orange Pot’s twist!)

I was never a fan of Mac n cheese. In fact I never really saw what the big hoopla is all about. I guess the ones I’ve tasted were mostly of packaged products. The taste was alright, texture was mediocre, and I often thought that they should use less orange or yellow food colouring in […]

Mini Buffalo Chicken Balls with Blue Cheese Dressing

Back in November 2014, I came across a charming bookstore called Bookbook  as I explored Bleecker Street in New York. I didn’t know until afterwards that it is quite a well-known spot (right across from the cool David’s Tea house – another cool spot with an amazing loose leaf tea collection). In the age of […]

#NoPork Xiao Long Bao (Shanghai Soup Dumplings)

I’m loving my days in the kitchen so much recently. Ever since I started doing the #Weekly_Canteen | #Cook_for_friends gig, I began exploring and revisiting some recipes and ideas that was long forgotten. Last week alone I tried a total of 15 recipes, among them a few I even did several times, as I wanted […]

Telur Pindang (Indonesian Marbled Eggs)

One of my early memories of my mother’s kitchen is recalling that my mother always puts aside the red onion (bawang merah/shallots) peel in a ‘besek’ (wicker basket) at the corner of the kitchen. When we kids helped her peeling the little tear-jerking little red things, she will call out to us, “Save the peels […]

Lentils with broiled eggplant

I just renewed my apartment contract again for 2015 and decided that since I’m not terribly busy anymore with work things, I should – for once and for all – take a close look to the many, many things which have taken space-hogging residence in my apartment. Somehow after 8 years in this apartment, my things have […]

Spicy dal + carrot soup

It’s that time of the year again, when every morning you wake up with a slight shiver since the morning air is a little on the cold side. Or when you go to bed, you want to lay under layers of blankets, wrap yourself up in a snuggie. And when it comes dinner time, the […]

Everybody loves Pizza!

Have you ever found yourself in a situation when you have a group of people coming over to your house with different dietary restrictions – halal, vegetarian, vegan, kosher, no red meat, no seafood, no vinegar, no this no that? Okay, I have never had all the aforementioned restrictions all in one go, but I often […]

Beef + Root Veggies + Barley Soup

It’s been embarrassingly too long since I updated the blog last, some 6 months ago, methinks. A lot has happened and to be fair, I haven’t been cooking much in the past 3-4 months, what with my new job and all the travels that happened surrounding it. Yeah, it’s kind of a downer (and horror […]
