Spicy Shredded Fish Manado Style (Pampis Cakalang Pedas)

As my motto goes, I’d give any attempt for being healthy a try. If the attempt to do be healthy can be done in a relatively easy effort with logical reasoning, I am more than up for giving it a go. Such is the case with JJ Smith’s 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse program. Excerpted from […]

Mac n Cheese a la MPW (with My Orange Pot’s twist!)

I was never a fan of Mac n cheese. In fact I never really saw what the big hoopla is all about. I guess the ones I’ve tasted were mostly of packaged products. The taste was alright, texture was mediocre, and I often thought that they should use less orange or yellow food colouring in […]

Telur Pindang (Indonesian Marbled Eggs)

One of my early memories of my mother’s kitchen is recalling that my mother always puts aside the red onion (bawang merah/shallots) peel in a ‘besek’ (wicker basket) at the corner of the kitchen. When we kids helped her peeling the little tear-jerking little red things, she will call out to us, “Save the peels […]

Lentils with broiled eggplant

Okay, I have never had all the aforementioned restrictions all in one go, but I often […]
