Sun-dried Tomato Butter

I can't remember when was the first time I had tasted sun-dried tomato butter. All I know is that this butter will make you forget how many slices of bread you already had and the fact that you are slathering on full fat butter. It is insanely easy to make, only 3 simple ingredients and the food processor does the work for you. I made it once before and the memories of it haunt me from time to time. I know it is just butter, right? How exciting can a slab of flavoured butter be? Beats me.

Anyway, enough of me gushing all over about it, let's get down to how to make it. This was what is in my recipe book: "Drain and chop 1/3 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes. Cut 125g room temperature butter into cubes and combine in a food processor with the sun-dried tomatoes and 1 tsp lemon juice. Blend until smooth."

Simple, right?

All that you need to do is just line a small bowl with transparent wrap and scoop the sun-dried tomato butter into it. Portion according to your usage. Then put them back to the fridge for storage. This butter can be frozen and kept for 1 month. But of cos, it wouldn't last that long in my house. (^.^)

Here's a photo of my birthday cake that my mom and sis bought for me. I just realised that I forgot to post this pic. Sorry, sis.

Getting old is no joke. There seems to be alot of things that I can't remember nowadays. I can't even remember what was the name of this cake! Oh gosh ... All I remember was that they bought it from a little shop in Tampines Mall known as Premium Cakes, or something like that. ;)


  1. Happy Birthday!!!!
    sorry its belated...
    i think the cake is Royals Premium cakes?No?

Post-meditated Pumpkin and Mushroom Soup

I cannot help but notice that recently the trendy words that seem to flood the wellness media always carry words like “self-care”, “meditation”, “gratitude”, and even “mindfulness” has been thrown in for good measure. Yes, all these single-word suggestions sound good. We all need to know how to take our stress level down a few notches at a time when we need to keep our face masks up.  So when I read the news about a nail being found in the pumpkin mushroom soup of an unidentified Asian passenger on board our national carrier bound for Auckland, imagine my dilemma. Should I feel grateful that my previous soups on board were served without any nails? Or should I feel grateful that I could not afford to fly our national carrier often enough to be served soups which might actually have carried nails or other specials in them? As you can see, I am pretty new to this wellness speak and hence very confused about this “gratitude” aspect of the trend.     Like any dutiful social m

Rosemary Cuttings

I think I am really bored with life. So bored that I am trying my hands are transplanting my rosemary plant! This is just after I killed by some mint off-shoots recently by transplanting them. I have black fingers, I think. Not that I need another rosemary plant. I am just plain curious why some people here are able to root a cutting from a Cold Storage pack . It sounds so easy that it is absurdly unfair. Maybe it is just my lack of technique and common sense when it comes to plants. Here's a link that I found helpful about transplanting rosemary . Seems that the chances of success for my transplanted rosemary doesn't look high. I didn't dip it in rooting powder (!!??), I transplanted it in medium sized container, and the soil is of highly questionable source (don't ask). Well, if the little fellow didn't make it, you will hear of it here soon.

Main Course Salads: Salade Nicoise

My motivation for looking into main course salad was born out of sheer laziness. I was looking for a one-dish meal (less plates) that requires minimal cooking (less pots/pans) and packs lots of veggies as well as being filling. No skimpy wimpy diet salads for this gal. So if I have to put this into a checklist of evaluating a salad, it would probably look like this. Salade Nicoise has all the ticks in the check-boxes. Everything in this salad can be made ahead of time. Right down to the proteins of eggs and fish (either canned tuna or leftover grilled salmon). Now, isn't this dish time friendly? The dressing for Salade Nicoise is just a simple olive oil and acid mix (ratio is 1 : 1.5)with shallots and herbs thrown in together with Dijon mustard. The recipe for the vinaigrette I used came from The New Best Recipe which you will be able to find it on Simply Recipe . I haven't had many main course salads in restaurants, but from the very few that I had eaten, the dre
