Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders

Saw this super easy dish on and I tried doing that for dinner. ~NICE~ ^.^
But I didn't fry them in a pan.  I cooked them using my Range Mate Magic Cooker.  Fast and easy. @ 50% power, 5 mins on each side inside my 1000@ microwave.  So Simple!!! :D

many many yummy simple food ideas here!

I used carrot and zucchini stix to replace those "leaves" :D

I realised I prepared too much stix... so I coated them with egg, bread crumbs and Nestum Cereal and shredded cheddar cheese.  Bake @ 220 d.c. for 45mins... and made the left-over stix into yummy & healthy snacks for all at home  ;-)

180g Self Raising Flour
1 tbsp Vanilla favoured Custard Powder
4 tbsp Quakers Instant Oatmeal
(sift flour and custard powder together. Mix in oatmeal)
120g Unsalted Butter
100g Sugar
2 eggs

4 tbsp Cream Corn (those from can)

Preheat oven @ 180 degress celcius
Mix at highest speed, butter, sugar and egg+ vanilla essence for 10 mins
Add in cream corn and mix for about 1 minute
Fold in the flour mixture
I pour the cake mixture into a piping bag and fill up each cup till 3/4 full.
Lastly, top each cup mixture with 1 or 2 tsp scoop of cream corn (I think i topped with 1 tbsp this time )

Bake for 20 minutes. Switch to top heat and bake for further 5 mins.

Cool in pan for at least 10mins before taking them out of the muffin pan.

Make sure the muffins r completely cooled before u store them in a air-tight container. Before I serve, I will reheat in microwave for 8 seconds. Enjoy!

a peep into the texture of my Jagong Oatmeal Muffin.

Salmon Creamy Corn Soup

Made this simple soup for lunch using the left over Creamed Corn from the Jagong Muffins.

I modified this from

2 cans cans creamed corn
500ml chicken stock
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp cold water
some Brocolli or any greens you like
300g Salmon fillet, de-skin, de-boned, cut into small cubes.

In a medium saucepan, combine the creamed corn with chicken stock and bring to a gentle boil.
In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Add to the soup. Cook for another few minutes, stirring often, until slightly thicken.
(I pre-cooked my Brocolli, steaming them in salt solution & butter.)
Stir in the vege and salmon cubes and let the soup bubble for a minute or so just before serving.
My girls eat this with brown rice... and they love it!! =))

Steamed Salmon on Buttered Asparagus

Reason why I'm cooking this fish all the time coz Salmon is Nyx's favorite! This is a very easy and fast to prepare dish. ;-)

De-skin and wash the salmon fillet
Marinate with 1 tsp light soya sauce, 1 tsp sugar + some water
Cover well and chill for at least 1hr
Steam for 10 mins.

Wash and cut off the thicker ends of the asparagus. Cut to your desired length. Prepare in a corning ware salt solution with 100ml water + a pinch of salt.
Put the cut asparagus in. scrape some butter and spread a few "scrape" over on the asparagus.
Sprinkle a little brown sugar over the butter. (throw in some mushroom if u want)
I use microwave to steam for 3mins, covered.

When fish is done, take out and place on top of the asparagus. Done! ;-)

I steam the veg. and fish seperately. Please dun prepare the fish too early ahead. coz salmon tends to harden when cooled. Prepare fish just b4 makan time.
I steam the Asparagus n mircowave for 3mins, covered. If you are using the normal steamer, it might teake longer time.
