Lamb and Winter Vegetable Stew

Winter doesn’t really exist in Singapore; it’s ridiculously hot and humid all year round.  That whole equator proximity thing… The seasons we do experience here can be characterized as wet and dry, although the lines are blurred because it can rain even during non-monsoon season.  Which it does… often.  However, when it is monsoon season, … Continue reading

Food Comas: Top 10 in 2012

Thanksgiving Leftovers Eggs Benedict

After my belated Thanksgiving celebration last weekend, I had a bunch of leftovers from the meal. I found a recipe online for Not So Humble Pie’s Turkey Eggs Benedict on Potato Cakes and thought it was such a creative way to use up my leftover mashed potatoes to form a “bread” base for a turkey … Continue reading

Sirloin Steak

My exploits with steak on this blog have thus far been with Filet Mignon and Pepper-Crusted Filet Mignon. Those are really nice cuts of meat (also expensive) and hard to mess up I think. I needed a cheaper alternative to feed my carnivorous urges, so I turned to sirloin, which is less than half the … Continue reading

Kālua Pork

Our buddy James cooks up an awesome Hawaiian BBQ dinner (inspired by ryan + gma).  Every time he announces he is making his (now) famous Kālua pork, I head over the his apartment with extra Tupperware to pack up any scrumptious leftovers for lunch the next day! Kālua, which means “to cook in an underground … Continue reading

Pepper-Crusted Filet Mignon

I know Jen and I often talk about making easy meals and simple recipes. Other times we obviously take days to marinade, brine, experiment, etc. In the realm of quick and easy, this recipe rules all.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

“If there’s a better fried chicken out there, I haven’t tasted it.” — Thomas Keller, Ad Hoc at Home To be honest, I still have a torrid love affair with BonChon’s Soy Garlic Fried Chicken, but Thomas Keller has a point.  His buttermilk fried chicken is the most incredible, traditional American-style fried chicken I have ever tasted.  … Continue reading

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! May 5th commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. In the US, this date is observed as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, which in present day loosely translates to people drinking a whole lot of tequila and cerveza. … Continue reading
