Don’t worry, none of us (almost) inherited our Ah Ma’s cooking skills from the Gods. How did she make that fish head curry and OMG, that yummy Tau Pok! But it’s okay, we can also make atas looking snacks effortlessly that would certainly wow her (or give her a good laugh/frown).

What Ah Ma would say: ‘Stop stop don’t cook eggs in the microwave the whole house will burn!’

What Ah Ma would say: ‘ Ah Ma make Goji soup for you, you don’t eat the Goji!’
What it actually is: What is Godiva when you can make your own cute chocolate buttons? Melted dark chocolate with rejuvenation topper. Video recipe here
P.S. The dried Goji berry is good with this mmmm.
