Summer requires easy dishes that don’t require much time in the heat of the kitchen. This tasty salad is one that I should make more often!


A light, easy risotto made with quinoa. Perfect for the Summer months, extremely tasty and won’t leave you feeling heavy or bloated.


This was a quick, easy recipe you can whip up during the week, or at your next BBQ. Prawns with mangoes, always a winning Summer combination.


Pasta doesn’t have to be smothered in tomato sauce to be good; a simple vodka, lemon and cream sauce is just as good.


All my favourite things: pasta, tomato based sauce, prawns and chorizo, all come together in the one dish.


Simple, easy, tasty… what more could you want? The orange element comes from marmalade instead of fresh oranges. I have altered the recipe below as we found it got a bit too bitter where the noodles didn’t get tossed properly. Feel free to alter it to your tastes of course. And if you love chilli,

Every time I watch a show that shows Singapore chilli crab, I salivate and dream I could be bothered cooking up crab at home.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and have hit up the sales like I have! I’m still festively swollen around my mid section so will be looking like a stuffed turkey on the beach later this week. I thought I’d have more energy to blog now that I’m on holidays, but I’m still trying

I hadn’t even heard of Nyonya cuisine until my last few trips to Malaysia. Mum was on the hunt for cookbooks, and I remember looking out for them when wondering into book shops. I never thought I would be able to cook any Nyonya recipes, but after seeing a tempting curry on a recent episode

What to give your mum for her birthday when she tells you not to get her a gift (because you are kind of between jobs and aren’t exactly swimming in money)? Well me being me, I told her I was going to cook her dinner instead then and wasn’t going to take no for an

My mid-week cooking came from the latest Delicious magazine (May 2008, pg. 32). I put my boyfriend in charge of cooking the pasta as I worked on everything else. Was truly delicious and will definitely be making it again! Serves 4 500g spaghetti extra virgin olive oil 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 long red
