Panko Crusted Grilled Cheese & Tomato Sandwich

Yes, despite my love for cooking, I haven’t done much of it of late.  Not only lacking in the cooking department, it’s pretty obvious that I’m also lacking in blog posts. Of course, this is not intentional as  I’ve been buried alive with seemingly infinitive workload and stress (FYI- my stress threshold is pretty low). I do apologise […]

Mac ‘n’ Cheese Pancakes 2.0

If you’re loyal to the traditional mac ‘n’ cheese recipes and the idea of mac ‘n’ cheese and pancakes together makes you frown rather than smile, this post may not be for you.

Beef with Lemongrass & Chiles Stir Fry

Chickpea Curry

When food supplies are running low in the house, usually I am left with 2 options: (a) to order pizzas online or (b) instant noodles. Although both options do not require much effort, they don’t provide much health benefits either.  I was raiding my pantry for some quick meal ideas to discover that I have […]

Nigella Lawson’s Caramel Croissont Pudding

As the season changes, so as our wardrobe and diet. Bidding goodbye to hot pants and gelato, it’s time for cosy fuzzy sweaters and warm puddings to welcome the frosty season. When it comes to puddings, I’m sure everyone is quite familiar with the basic bread and butter pudding – which is without a doubt […]
