WHAT’S COOKIN’?

Here’s a summary of my kitchen forays.

As I attempt to cook a delicious meal when I am in the mood, inspired by a certain recipe or craving.

I started out the album to also encourage myself to begin finding my way back to an interest from young, to improve my rusty cooking skills.

Many times I cook by feelings and estimated taste gauges like how my mother and grandmother does in the kitchen.

With the growing emphasis on healthy eating and raising food costs that could sometimes discourage home cooking, my objective is to encourage more home made food and a skill somehow forsaken by busy females nowadays in urban Singapore.

Although I don’t consider myself an experienced home cook yet. I believe that every action made and visual impact would inspire at times as it did for me many times in life.

Sometimes recipes to even document certain memories.

I will gradually try to blog more about the food I had tried out and the recipes if available.

I would love to be in touch and exchange cooking tips and recipes!
