Beautiful Food Blog

I dislike cooking. If you ask me, I would say that it’s too much effort for too little reward. You see – from buying the ingredients to cleaning, cutting and cooking them, we need at least two hours. After the meal, there is another hour spent on the clean-up. So, the total time spent is three hours!

All we need is only half an hour to eat or I should say, enjoy the meal that we cooked in two hours’ time. The subsequent clean-up is far more complicated when there are too many pots and pans to wash.

Marveling at the fact that it is so convenient to dine-out in Singapore, I think we should just enjoy this simple luxury of dining out instead of cooking up a storm at home.

Today, during my web surfing, I stumbled upon the most beautiful food blog I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Delectable recipes. Beautiful food photography. Great presentation. From Chinese food to festive cooking, baking, stir-fries, Thai food, Japanese food and even desserts, this food blog is so complete. I’m absolutely in love with this blog!

I’m particularly attracted to its Chinese soup recipes. The author of this blog is very knowledgeable in explaining the different types of herbs used in the soup. She has pictures of the herbs too, and they are all properly labeled. I’m so delighted when I found out that the author of this blog is actually from Singapore!

Let’s meet NoobCook.com.

This awesome blog really motivates me to cook a special meal for my family. And it completely changes the way I think about cooking at home. Oh no, I really want to cook something this weekend!

    Do try out some simple dish and remember, it’s always good to eat home cooked food than outside food, cos we use cleaner utensils, we use healthier oil, less salt, less sugar.. so try it out !

      Oh, we never ask the maid to cook. She can’t even fry an egg! I dun want another kitchen disaster. During weekdays, we have home-cooked dinner at my MIL’s house. My MIL cooks for us. During weekends, we are usually out – so we just eat out. Too lazy to cook on weekends.

      But after seeing this blog, I may want to try some simple dishes and make some soup for Little Edison. 🙂

    Hi Bee Bee,

    I guess Im the opposite of you. I dislike dining out cause I find that the food outside all taste the same. Whenever I can, I will try to whip out some dishes. You can ask your helper to prepare the ingredients for you, then cook yourself, and get her to clean up the mess again.

      Hi Ling,
      For me, weekday lunches will be in the office canteen (bcos it’s free). Weekday dinners will be cooked by my MIL. Weekends are the only days I can dine out – enjoy my favorite western food and fast foods. That’s the reason why I don’t like to cook. Three hours on weekends are just too precious, I don’t want to spend them in the kitchen.
