Noob Cook Recipes


Hi, I’m wiffy the Noob Cook. I’m from the sunny city of Singapore.

Welcome to my recipes blog! I enjoy cooking even though I don’t think I’m very good at it. Being a noob* at cooking doesn’t, however, deter me from entering the kitchen and trying to whip up a storm. In this blog, I feature recipes of the successful dishes I’ve made. Hopefully, my bravery in entering the kitchen and showcasing the recipes will be an inspiration to other noobs out there.

* In case you are wondering what noob means, here are some of the applicable definitions at urban dictionary:

Being a Noob Cook doesn’t mean we eat in all the time! Noob Cook Reviews (sister site) is a personal blog of our eat-out and travel escapades, where we share our foodie and travel finds with our readers. All featured reviews and content on Noob Cook Reviews site are explored at our own expense and recreation (non sponsored).

    Hi Wiffy,

    I’m Ivanie from Indonesia, a Chinese descent. I found your recipes very interesting! They are easy to be understood and seems easy to be made. FYI, I am also a “noob” in kitchen. Hahaha.. But your great explanation in the recipes encourages me to try cooking them. One more thing I like besides the step by step instruction is that you put images and the tips & tricks too! Very useful~!!

    Good job Wiffy!

    Hello! Thanks for sharing your awsome and easy to follow recipes! I have tried the curry chicken recipe and it turned out great. Will be trying the soup recipes soon! Thanks again!

    I am interested to make the ‘Blueberry Muffin’ using your recipe, may I know your measurement using as ‘cup’ = 240ml? Also can I use ‘cup cake’ paper cup to bake instead of using the muffin baking tray?

      Hi, can you kindly post your question at the recipe page itself? Thanks :)

    Just wanted to say how much I love reading your blog! Especially the 15min dishes. I currently live overseas now and whenever I crave for something asian I would look at your blog. :D Keep it up.

    Hi Wiffy!

    Thanks for this great website. I like to cook too, but most of my cooking is what I ate when I was young, so I just try to recreate the tastes… so with your website, I have a guide to rely on!! I also love it that so many recipes are simple and homely… the way the Singapore cook does it for their families.

    Having said that, can I PLEASE have recipes on HAIRY GOURD? (jit/chit gwa) Like the soup, the stirfly julienne pieces, the hollowed out gourd with stuffed pork… etc. I would cook it, but without your “guidance”, I lose some of my confidence!!

    Looking forward! Thanks again Noob CooK!

      Thanks for your note. Glad my site have come in handy. I will experiment with hairy gourd and post the recipes when they are successful :)

    Hi, I’m a wife-to-be in 10months and know nothing about cooking except instant noodles and scrambled egg. It’s saving grace to chance upon your website! I subscribed immediately and can’t wait to, slowly but surely, try out the recipes and hope I’ll succeed like u too! Soup in 4 steps?? Amazing! Thank u for sharing!! :)

      thanks and happy cooking!
