Here’s a mouthful: Warm Salt and Pepper Prawn Salad with Tuna, Pasta, Egg and Sweet Corn Mayonnaise topped with Crushed Peanuts Monday nights. You know how it is to come home after a long day at work, and you are most likely still recovering from your “Monday Blues”? Cooking is probably the last thing most of us would want to do. I felt the same way. Came home, and sat on the couch for a good 10 minutes before deciding to get up and make something for dinner. I didn’t plan to cook anything – so I was faced with … Continue reading Mystery Freezer / Pantry Challenge

Dad’s Assam Fish Head Curry Recipe

Hey everyone. Ever since I got back from Malaysia a week ago, I have fallen sick most possibly due to the drastic change in weather.. from a really hot and humid tropical weather in Malaysia, to the first signs of winter in Melbourne.

But I do know based on my poll results, comments and some requests via Twitter and ChatBox that you guys enjoy seafood and a lot of you enjoy … Continue reading Dad’s Assam Fish Head Curry Recipe

SERVES 4Taken from “Meals in Minutes” by Cathay Books published in 1987 Kimba’s Review: This was one of the first few recipes I have ever tried in my history of cooking, lol. This photo was taken 2 years ago! I was a newlywed, in our rental property, and I knew I had to stop cooking “ready made” stuff from Coles (the ones you just pop into the oven). I knew I had to take it to the next level and cook something half impressive from scratch. So I went and searched for those cook books I bought from a church … Continue reading SPAGHETTI MARINARA
