Fried fish with ginger

Thinking of cooking sth quick and simple which goes well with plain porridge. Finally decided to go back to basic by improving skill in frying fish. Crispy inside and soft inside. Mom's tip: Don't cook with slow fire. Rub the fish with salt and fry for about 10 minutes depending on the size of the fish. Place the fish on a plate. Fry sliced ginger and place them on the fish and add in soya sauce. Served immediately with hot porridge. Long beans with fried eggs made a good combination.

Plain Mini Cupcakes

Daughter loves cakes with buttercream. Was not really satisfied with the buttercream recipe that I've tried before. Am quite delighted with this new found butter icing recipe which taste better in terms of its texture and level of sweetness.

100 g butter
200 g icing sugar
2 tablespoons cold milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or other essence


Cream the butter until light and creamy. Gradually beat in sugar, alternately with milk. Continue beating until is light and fluffy. Beat in essence until well blended.
