Noodles with Chinese Kale & Shitake Mushrooms

E5

I seldom have noodles for dinner when I¬†was¬†living with my parents. This is mainly because my dad considers rice-with-three-dishes- and-a- soup ¬†is a¬†proper dinner as compared to one pot of¬†stir-fry¬†noodles.¬†In my household,¬†we normally prefer to have noodles for breakfast and lunch instead of dinner. However since living away from home, I don’t remember the last […]

I, on the other hand, […]

Although having said that, laziness has been the reason I’ve been procrastinating and resorting […]

Beef-Lemongrass-Stir-Fry-3-ok

When I¬†first dabbled in¬†the world of cooking,¬†I used to rely heavily¬†on pre-made stir fry sauces from the supermarkets.¬†It makes cooking less intimidating¬†as all I had to do was¬†to cut up¬†some¬†fresh meat and¬†vegetables, tossed them in the pan¬† with the pre-made sauce.¬†No sweat.¬†¬†Although each time the cooking process was almost identical, the results,on the other hand, […]
