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!
    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!

    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…

      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”;)

    Sweet blog! :D
    I especially like your simple but heavenly molten chocolate cake recipe.
    However, I find some strange. There is a long list of food blogs similar to yours (not the same recipes but same style of presentation). I still don’t get why they do it for. Do they at least get some renumeration?
    Or is it out of the joy of cooking?
    I’m a teen starting to cook on my own as my parents dare not dabble in culinary magic.

      I would say most of us do it for the joy of cooking. Have fun cooking!

    HI I just chanced upon your blog and am really excited to start trying out the recipes! I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook proper dishes but most of the things that books teach seem to be too difficult ): hope this works out well!

    Hi – I just stumbled upon your blog and I LOVE it! It’s so hard to find English cookbooks for Authentic Chinese Food… and your recipes are so easy to follow! Also, your photos are very professional… do you do photography or must I say, “food-tography” professionally? Maybe you could start a photo blog too? ;) hehee. If you ever do, please let me know!

    Hello! I’m from Singapore too but am currently living in London. Just to tell you that your recipes have pretty much been my lifeline to home cooked asian dishes. Thanks a lot and awesome site you have here! :)

    Hi Wiffy, I’m so glad to have found your website! I’m a Singaporean living in the UK and I definitely miss the variety of food we have in Singapore. I can find similar sorts of food here but the taste just isn’t the same. Thrilled to find recipes of Singapore food on this site. I’m going to whip up Singapore dishes for myself! =)
