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).

However, your food looks delicious and your photos are amazing. Nothing noob about them. Great blog!! Cheers~

    hey! i’m a total noob and completely hopeless in the kitchen
    So this is a great relief. Thanks for the step by step guides.
    Hate it when recipes are too complicated, and when they don’t explain the simple stuff because they seem like common cooking sense (of which i have none).

    Like how I only recently what shallots are.
    Yes I am that hopeless.

    Keep up the great work! :)

    Hi Wiffy!
    We are friends on the “We” games, I’m sby258. I saw your blog on your status and it intrigued me…for one, it’s interesting to know people out of the games-for two, I am a food fanatic and I like reading blogs :) I’m excited to try some of your recipes!


    • wiffy replied: — October 18th, 2010 @ 11:19 am

      hey!!! a friend from the “We” family here, how cool is that! Thanks for your visit, I’ve just ordered from your kingdom :)

    I understand proportion differs with taste sometimes… But but, i’d really love it if you could include the serving pax on every recipe? I’ll do the ratio and proportion calculations myself.. Lol.. I’m really bad at gauging.. Thank you wiffy… I assume the nick derives from wife which does all the heavy, lifting when it comes to cooking… Lol…


    • wiffy replied: — January 7th, 2011 @ 6:07 pm

      Hi One, sorry for my late reply. My recipes do include the serving pax at the ingredients section. And nope, my nickname does not derive from the word “wife”;)
