Preparing a meal for one (self) can be quite demotivating. Rather, it is wanting the MOST - tasty, nutritious, healthy, from the LEAST - time and effort. When you cook for a family (two of more), the ROI seems to be higher. No?

ROI or "Return of Investment". Consider this - for a little more time and (Read more...)

Spiced Potato Tomato Rice, Indian Biryani-Style 印度式土豆番茄饭

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Remember this one-pot Cabbage Rice? The idea of fuss-free cooking where it is best to cook "everything" (carbs, vegetables, protein) in one-pot or one-pan, never fails to inspire me in creating new dishes. Chicken soup turns chicken soup noodles, stir-fry vegetables transforms to a vegetable stir-fr (Read more...)

Easy Healthy Korean Bibimbap 韩式拌饭

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

I found you at last! Without much procrastination, I have to "own" you especially when I do not go to the Korean grocery store that often. A few days after, you are already put to good use.

I have thought about making bibimbap at home for some time. Something is just lacking and you are critical.

Couscous Sushi – Salmon Flakes, Octopus Salad 熏鱼北非小米寿司

Friday, June 13th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

The best perk about making sushi at home is that you can toy with thousand and one ideas for your preferred filling. The sushi flavors can be limitless. You can have what you can't get in store-bought sushi. In fact, this perk to DIY "Do-It-Yourself" is not reserved for sushi but nearly...everything (Read more...)

Mushrooms, Cucumber Noodle Salad 木耳黄瓜拌面

Monday, June 9th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Inspired by this New York Times article, I was keen to make batches of food - not so much about bringing lunch to work but the gist of planning and preparing meal or meal components ahead so for days to follow, there is food on the table without breaking much sweat. THAT is motivation for me.

"Befor (Read more...)

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

The premonition is strong. We are going to have Gado Gado quite often this summer. In fact, we have had it some time ago when we were experiencing early 85+F heat just about two weeks ago, in spring, here in Bay Area, CA.


How would you dress this? I would almost always do it with peanut-sauce dressi (Read more...)

My friend invited us to her place for lunch to try her Shanghai Vegetable Rice 上海菜饭. I must be in serious need for inspiration and motivation! The next thing I wanted to do after trying this dish, was to try making the same dish! And I wanted to cook it within the same week, with that vivid memory.

Preparing a meal for one is quite a chore. Some of you may just settle with salad but that is really not my kind of meal.

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

How do you make a dish "sweet and sour" similar to Sweet and Sour Pork or Plum Sauce Chicken, or Orange Chicken, or Lemon Chicken?


In this recipe, the "sweet and sour" essence is created by fresh tomatoes, caramelized onions, hint of brown sugar in soy-based sauce, finished off with a little black vi (Read more...)
