#throwback to last weekend. I had my fill of poke! Prior to this bowl from Aloha Poke at City Link Mall, I'd only had it once before at Alter Ego. And before that I made my own although my flavours skewed more towards Japanese rather than Hawaiian. Anyway, I found myself hankering after a bowl and this … Continue reading Food & Family.
I stumbled upon this recipe a while back and was eager to give it a go. The combination of rye flour and bay leaf piqued my curiosity and so, I decided I would make it. As with always, I took the recipe and gave it a little spin of my own. Nothing too out there … Continue reading Almond, Bay and Rye.
Confession: I've tried my hand at making zucchini bread before but being the lazy baker that I can be, I wasn't too thorough in squeezing as much water out of the zucchini as I could have so I ended up a sad sloppy batter. As a result, I decided that zucchini was no friend of … Continue reading If At First You Don’t Succeed…
Wednesday 19th Jul 2017 Noon. I met Flo for my 'surprise' lunch that he had made a reservation for. I had a little inkling as to where we were going to go but wasn't entirely certain. We met at City Hall station and headed towards Carlton Hotel. There I guessed we were going for Japanese. … Continue reading Shinji by Kanesaka.
It's been a while since Cookies graced my kitchen. I'm a bit of a snob in that I look at cookies and think that cookies are cookies, so there's not much to them really. But when my man requested for a jar of his favourite Rennekookies to take to work, I buckled down and baked … Continue reading Cookies and Cookies.
Last weekend was a nicely packed one for Flo and I in that we were busy enough, yet not so busy to tire ourselves out for the week ahead. We decided to book tickets to a local theatre production - Boeing Boeing. Flo's never been to watch any of our local theatre productions before and … Continue reading Taking Flight.
When I was little, I used to ask Mum who her best friend was. She'd always reply that Dad was her best friend. I was never satisfied with that answer and would say to her "Noooo! Dad can't be your best friend. He's your husband! You MUST have someone else who's your best friend!". It … Continue reading Nuts & Berries Unite because… Chocolate!
I used to be someone who would turn around and run the minute a relationship appeared to be turning sour. That dreaded feeling of failure would well up in the pit of my stomach and the thought of uncertainty scared me. Rather than try and fix things, I would choose to instead give up. Then … Continue reading Layers and Layers of Love.
Being misunderstood especially towards the end of my adolescence is something I found difficult to contend with. Even now, I sometimes struggle to understand why. I remember at the beginning of University when we had Orientation Camp, my peers would comment that I looked like a clubber. Nothing wrong with clubbing only they made me … Continue reading Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake.
I've never been much of a citrus kind of girl. It's not that I dislike how they taste, I've just never found myself drawn towards oranges and lemons and limes even though I have to admit that they are awesome at adding a zing to baked goods as well as salad dressings and avocados! So … Continue reading Grapefruit meets Hazelnut.
