To make the spicy chicken filling:

Recipe | Peanut Butter Marshmallow Granola Balls



I love granola bars, especially those with peanut butter. However, there are times that I found them a bit too sweet. So, while we were planning our weekly meal, I suggested to hubby that I would make our own snacks. He agreed and we decided on peanut butter granola balls.

Here's what you need:

1 bag of lose granola
2 tablespoons of lite butter
1 small bottle (350g) of peanut butter
12 pieces of marshmallows

What you need to do:

  1. Put lite butter in a bowl and heat it. Once it's melted, place the marshmallows in until it completely melts.
  2. Mix all the other ingredients in a separate bowl, including 1 tablespoon of butter. Once it's thoroughly mixed, add the melted mallows.
  3. Grease the baking pan with some butter and using an ice scream scoop, place 6 balls on it.
  4. Place the pan in the toasted oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. 
  5. Let it cool and serve.

This recipe does not include sugar or flour. I used the melted mallows as my binding agent to make sure that the balls stay in shape.

Ketchup in Spaghetti?



As I was looking at the spaghetti being sold by a local vendor, I told myself that it may not be worth buying. However,  I have long ago learned that one should not judge the taste of food on looks alone. Foodies know that presentation may look gorgeous, but the taste is inversely proportional to it and vice versa. 

So, I decided to give it a try. There's no harm in trying, right? 

Unfortunately, this time I was wrong. I should have listened to my guts. The first thing I noticed was - soggy pasta. Spaghetti noodles should be al dente and not soft and squishy. I think here is what happened. After boiling the pasta, who ever made it didn't shock it in water to stop the cooking process. Then, she sauteed the sauce and re-cooked the pasta in it, cooking it further.

Now, when I tried to eat it, I noticed a sour aftertaste after each forkful. I stopped eating it immediately since I feared spoiled food. Then again, I tried a small bite and realized that it wasn't rancid or spoiled - the culprit was ketchup in the sauce. Sad to say that it went straight to the bin after I tasted it. 

How about you, dear friends, do you put ketchup in your spaghetti?

Recipe | Chicken Caesar Salad

It's been a while since I last shared some of my favorite recipes here on this blog. Real life got in the way a bit. However, I have a few days to compose better entries and here's the first one.

I've tried KFC's Chicken Salad D'Lite and although it was good, I did find it a bit too salty for my taste. Last weekend, I tried to make my own version at home. Here's what you'll need:

1/4K chicken breast fillet, washed cubed and covered in bread crumbs or breading of you choice
1 medium cucumber diced
1 medium carrot diced
2 medium tomatoes diced
200g of Romaine lettuce
cheese, grated
pre-prepped Caesardressing
3 tablespoons of oil


  

What you need to do:

1. Fry the coated chicken cubes in a pre-heated pan and set aside on paper towels to drain excess oil.
2. Arrange the veggies on a plate, top with chicken, cheese and dressing.
3. Serve and enjoy.


It's fast, easy, simple and most of all healthy! Enjoy!
