Big Breakfast

Last weekend, I made myself a special "big breakfast" without bacon, ham or sausage.  It has two slices of toasted bread, baked beans, sauteed mushroom, stir-fry French beans and what was supposedly to  be poached eggs but turned out to be hard-boiled egg. I need more practise and precision to time my poaching to perfection.

It was a filling breakfast and I think it's healthy too!

Nique's Signature Dish

I miss eating Nique's hokkien mee, especially those huge and fresh succulent banana prawns - yum! The spice, aroma and taste are simply delicious! It may be time consuming to prepare the dish but the effort well worth it! I'm so proud of you Nique! Hope you will cook more often in the future ;)

Pasta with Basil Pesto

My maiden attempt in making pesto with only a bunch of basil leaves, oil and lots of sautéed garlic as ingredients. Just put all the ingredients into the blender until it forms to paste-like texture. Then, I heat up the the pan which has been lightly greased and stir-fry marinated chicken slice. Once the chicken is cooked, stir-in the pesto and let it simmer. After that, transfer the boiled pasta into the pan and mix well with the pesto. Dish out into a plate and sprinkle some chilli flakes for a little bit of spice and it is ready to serve! 
Given that I hardly have time to cook during the weekdays, this dish is simply easy and satisfactory.
