Sambal Telur

This Malaysian egg curry is my obsession right now and it requires only steamed (basmati) rice to serve. Traditionally, the eggs would be hard boiled, but this dish is far more delicious when they are a little soft inside. To soft boil the eggs, cover them with cold water in [...]

High Protein Egg and Avocado Bake

In a world of instant cereals, boxed cereals, breakfast sandwiches and muffins it is hard to believe that there are actually low carb high protein breakfasts that don't involve innocuous mixture of flour, water and yeast.

Cheesey Corn Pancakes

I love to cook, just not necessarily everyday (yes I can admit it), but I do love to cook. Learning about the benefits of different foods how to put them together and the triumphs I feel when I have tried a recipe a few times and it finally works. Knowing [...]
