Mary’s Kitchen

Cooking is my passion, and I love trying new recipes all the time. When my dishes are appreciated, it spurs me on to try even more new culinary creations.

Some say my dishes are ‘better than the best local restaurant in town’, that makes my day! My ‘acar’ and ‘sambal belachan’ are said to be top of the charts, and I receive many orders for them. Baking consumes a lot of my time as well, as some of my cakes and pastries are made for special requests.Β In between, I tend to my garden as I do believe I have ‘green fingers’. And I absolutely adore dogs, we used to have several pet dogs at home, but now, we only babysit our friends’ pets every now and then.

Bon Appetit!

  2. Hi Mary! Wah, becoming a celebrity already. Yes, I have to agree with everyone. I simply love your kuih lapis! Dah BEST!!!! I hope my mommy will be able to join you in the kitchen some days. She loves cooking/baking too but no one to share her passion with. I believe you are the best person to be her cooking & baking buddy. I will see you soon during CNY!

    • Hi Hilda, thank you for your flattering compliments. I personally take pride in preparing this Dutch Layer Cake (kuih lapis) as the secret recipe was passed on to us by a nonya who originated from the Dutch East Indies (now known as Indonesia). See you during CNY. By the way, the kitties are all strays.
      Love, Mary

  3. Hi Mary! How are you??? Once upon a time a few of us, Ann’s classmates, were invited to the house you were staying in Muar. The mee you prepared for us was so delicious. We call it Mee Mary. Cannot forget that taste!!

    • Hi Cecilia, I am fine and pleasantly surprised that you still remember enjoying the fried mee when you and friends visited us at Muar. Should you next visit us here, I shall prepare the same dish for your eating pleasure. You are in our prayers.
