Twice-Baked Gruyère & Potato Soufflé

The rain has finally stopped. This weekend is a sunny one, and I’m hoping that the sunshine will continue into Sunday and the rest of the year as well. Also, the boy’s fever is finally gone. I’m hoping to catch up on some sleep this weekend. The sun can still continue to shine out there and bring cheers to everyone who’s feeling blue.

Classic Salmon Chowder

This is a very simple chowder recipe, cooked with our favourite fish at home – salmon. It makes for a full meal, with the potatoes and creamy soup, but if it’s not enough for you, you can serve it alongside crispy toasts. This chowder is great on rainy days because it warms my heart and soul. But how I wish it will stop raining soon. Mr sun, where have you gone?

Stuffed Tofu In Black Bean Sauce

It is still raining almost everyday. This week, I only got to cycle once (or twice?), but I managed to jog back home once as well.

Now that he’s much older, and in a student care nearer the house, I gave it a try again. It was tiring! But I was happy to have accomplished something that I haven’t done for the longest time in the new year. 🙂

Korean Kimchi & Beansprout Rice Bowl

This is the last recipe of the year 2023. I’ve chosen a Korean recipe to end this year, but for no specific reasons really. Not ending on a bad note, but neither is it a particularly good one. The wars in Gaza and Ukraine are still going on, the Rohingyas are still being displaced and life still goes on.
