Portobello Mushrooms Spaghetti Bake

You may wonder what on earth is Emily doing by showing us some ready-made frozen food?
Please don’t let my aluminium trays mislead you! Sure when food comes in a box (aluminium or plastic), the immediate impression one has is either the food is:-
(a) a frozen ready-made meal; or
(b) takeaway food
But do not worry, my portebello mushroom spaghetti bake is none of the above (plus it’ll defeat the purpose of writing a food blog, yes?). :P  It’s merely an evidence that  I hate washing dishes, the less dirty dishes the better.  

No Frills Dessert: Black Glutinous Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk Drizzle

Despite the title no-frills dessert, I can’t say that I make this rice pudding all the time. In fact, the last time I had this dessert was when I still called myself a teenager.

As I often move around places where there’s no Chinatown or Asian groceries are scarce (not by choice, of course), black glutinous rice is precious in my eyes. When my friend brought this dessert over to my potluck  party a couple of weeks ago, I was thrilled to reconnect with my teenhood favourite.
