Ayam Kecap Bango (Kecap Bango’s Roasted Chicken)

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 in Featured, Kitchenette, Meat and Poultry, My Recipe, Original Recipes | 0 comments

I cooked this roasted chicken almost a year ago when I was abroad, but was lazy to post it. It was an emergency recipe when my son and I were alone at my friend’s house. I wanted to cook something yummy but easy and quick to make, while I had in the kitchen was only chicken. At first I was thinking to make chicken soup, unfortunately some spices were not available at my friend’s kitchen. After checking what kind of spices she had, I decided to create something new by utilizing new variant of Kecap Bango “manis, pedas, gurih” (sweet, hot, umami) I brought from Indonesia.     The result was good. Though the soy sauce was hot yet the end result was acceptable by my toddler son. Now let me share you the recipe, but pardon me for...

Tumis Kohlrabi (Stir Fry Kohlrabi)

Posted by on Nov 29, 2011 in Kid Meals, My Recipe, Original Recipes, Vegetarian | 0 comments

When you live alone with a 23mos toddler, you will be more creative in creating easy and quick recipes, at least this is what has happened to me during our life in Bremen. The one that I will share you the recipe is one of some of those recipes. I just named it Tumis Kohlrabi (Stir Fry Kohlrabi). Actually at first I wanted to cook Sambal Goreng Labu Siam (Chayote cooked in coconut milk) by substituting chayote with kohlrabi as they have similar taste and texture, but both my son and I were so hungry, so I decided to create a simple food from it. I cooked this food together with him. Kareem was uber happy to finally allowed to cook. You can see the videos of him cooking on his page. This simple food from an easy and...

Simple Beef Soup

Posted by on Oct 19, 2011 in Kid Meals, Meat and Poultry, My Recipe, Soup and Stew | 10 comments

We (me and my son) are back in Bremen since 10th of October. It is cold here in Northern Germany especially for us who just came from Jakarta with its 30 something degree Celsius weather. The good news about cold weather is: it raises the appetite of my son, the bad news is: mine too 😀 In this such weather, soup never fails to keep us warm. Beef soup is one of my son fav, and he kept asking me “bibu, sup-nya mana?” (mommy, where is the soup?) when eating. His grandma (my mom) used to cook him this kind of soup, only with oxtail instead of beef shank. The one I share here is my own recipe as I need to cook something fast with less effort. Gott sei Dank it turned yummy and my little boss said...

Porridge and Colorful Veggie

Posted by on Apr 8, 2011 in Breakfast and Brunch, Featured, Kid Meals, My Recipe, Vegetarian | 0 comments

Having a toddler around is really fun mainly when you love to experiment in the kitchen developing new recipe or modifying from the old one. Though sometimes the fun is coming along with frustrating too when your work in the kitchen is not suit to his* taste. I’m blessed for having a not picky eater son, but like any toddler in the world, he has his period when he doesn’t want to eat at all. My son loves to eat vegetables (I’m really a happy mommy); spinach, broccoli and green bean are his fav. I make them as soup, stir fry, casserole or hid them in any kind of nugget. Sometimes he is enjoying eating veggies only by steaming them. The recipe of colorful veggie below I created when he was on his I-don’t-want-to-eat-at-all period and it saved me...
