Beef and potato wrapped in puff pastry

It seems that every culture has some version of a beef and potato wrapped in pastry food item. Australians have a steak and potato pie, Russians do it in a piroshki, Indians with samosas and Latin Americans have empanadas. Over the weekend, I made the Malaysian version for friends: curried beef and potato wrapped in puff pastry. I used a mild curry powder and the kids loved it. It's always rewarding to see your own kids appreciate your food but a little extra special when other people's children enjoy it so much, they ask to eat the last one. This is an easy recipe and I cheat a little by using puff pastry instead of making my own.

Style Surfing: Clarisonic for beautiful skin

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful Mum and all the other Mothers out there! The last couple of years, my sweet husband, Beefcake has gifted me Clarisonic products and they've been some of most practical gifts I've gotten to maintaining beautiful skin. I'm very lucky that I come from a line of women with gorgeous skin but as you get older, some maintenance is in order. I can honestly say I've used my Clarisonic cleansing brush system and Pedi transformation every single week.

Underground Indian Cuisine in Irving

Beefcake and I love Indian food especially when we lived in Singapore. We'd go to hawker stalls and gorge on roti and hot curries served on a banana leaf instead of plates. But since moving to Dallas, we'd not ventured too much into the cuisine especially after having the kids. But slowly we've found some authentic places and they seem to be clustered around the Irving/Las Colinas areas. Underground Indian Cuisine is one of them. They serve Pershawri Indian cuisine from the Northern region which tends to be less spicy. It's a great way to introduce the children to Indian cuisine

Simple grilled lamb chops recipe

It's cook out weather and we're enjoying every minute of it. This year, Dallas is actually having real spring weather which means the only thing sizzling is on our barbecue grill. We like to entertain friends with this grilled lamb chop recipes. The key is to marinate them for at least 2 hours in advance to infuse all your flavors before popping them on the grill so all your hard work is done by the time your friends arrive.
