Singapore Shiok!

December 2, 2011

Hi All!

I have been up to my eyeballs these last 5 months, in this, that and the other, BUT, I have not stopped blogging - I've just been doing it somewhere else. Quickies on The Dinner Table has been a lovely introduction to the world of food blogging and a gateway to many wonderful friendships, but I crave a broader culinary scope than the one I have created here. I would like to thank each and every one of you who has read, followed, subscribed, commented, tried out my recipes, bought my book, or extended the hand of friendship through this blog. The best part of the whole process has been interacting with you. Please join me at Singapore Shiok! as I write about the food of my home, Singapore and anything else that interests or inspires me.

As I continue to receive positive feedback about Quickies, though I will no longer be updating it, I have decided to leave it as an information and recipe resource for any one who is interested. All text, recipes and photos are my own work, hence I would appreciate if those who wish to use any text, recipes or photos from this site, would contact me for permission at

quickiesonthedinnertable(at)gmail(dot)com


Sincerely,

Denise Fletcher


 

Pandan Madeleines by the Teaspoon!

July 21, 2011


Anyone who knows Marcel Proust or madeleines will connect the two, so I don't have to do join the dots for you. I haven't read the novel. 




 

I tried, but I figure rather than run the marathon, I'd just show up at the finish line with a madeleine in my mouth, er.... half dipped in my cup of tea, and I'd get what the guy was going on, and on, and on........and ON about. And no, I'm not sure I do, but maybe it's because mine taste of pandan and take me to a whole other place ;)


Today I ha...

Where in The World is That Woman!?!

July 2, 2011


Last week I was in another country, and this may be out of place in a foodblog, but I always think the measure of a country is best judged by the state of its public loos. *Ahem*  Every single public loo I was in last week was absolutely pristine and each commode had a multi function bidet attached! Without exception. In one mall washroom, there was an attendant who entered every cublicle the second it was vacated and spruced it up lightning quick before inviting the next person in line to en...

Bee Tai Bak in Green Tea

February 16, 2011


What do you do when you make the grave mistake of eating laksa lemak for three meals running, in the same day? You leisurely repent for two days after, that's what.



I love laksa lemak, but really, what was I thinking? All that coconut milk, richly pungent dried shrimp, masses of fried fish cake slices, heaps of fresh prawns and overly generous dollops of fiery chilli paste?!?  My boy Joseph had requested laksa for lunch the day before and when a picky eater makes  a request, you sit up and y...

Whatever's in the Fridge Wednesday - Mee Hoon Kueh

January 19, 2011


Well, hellooooooooo!! I'm ba-aaaack! I'd apologise for my absence, but I know you know I wouldn't disappear without good reason, and I have something for you that I hope will make up for my silence. I've actually been leaving a trail of links all over your blogs lovely friends, in your comments boxes,  but alas, most of you did not bite the bait, so, I'm just going to have to come out and say it - I have amongst other things, been working on my new bread blog, other things still simmering on ...
