In the cold winter months, there’s nothing more soothing than a bowl of hot, spicy, flavourful, freshly cooked soup. I love Thai food, I love the flavour combinations, the use of really fresh and simple ingredients, and the lightness of many of their dishes. Here’s one of my favourites. Enjoy!
This is a really hearty, healthy dish that’s so full of flavour, I just can’t get enough of it! If you’re vegan, just skip the chicken and replace the yoghurt with a non-dairy version. What’s more, if you have leftovers, you can mash it together to make vegan burgers the next day. Enjoy!
Eggs! Rich in protein and oh so delicious! For people like me who work out 6 days a week, ensuring that we get the protein that we need to build that lean muscle, eggs are one of my go-to foods.
Galette is the French word for savoury pancake or crepe made with potato or buckwheat flour. Those that I’ve had so far in France and French restaurants are usually made from buckwheat flour. Here’s the really simple recipe for the pancake. After that, you’re free to put toppings of your choice.
Is it just me, or do you also feel an incredible surge of freedom in being able to cook whatever you want, whenever, how-ever you want? When I was a kid, I often wished there was more chocolate frosting on my cake, and now? I can put a triple layer of frosting if I wanted to. But of course, I don’t. 😉 So I made this breakfast during one of those days when I couldn’t choose just one thing, so I decided to have both! Hah. Such freedom! xx Serves 2 (or just for you!)
I love that time, usually on Saturday afternoons, when you find yourself with that coveted free time (me time!) to sit down, put your feet up, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with some delicious sweet treats. Now that it’s cold, rainy and sometimes snowy outside, this treat feels even more heavenly. Enjoy!
Growing up in Asia, I was used to having soba noodles without realising what it was made of. All I knew was that it was a type of Japanese noodle. Well, now I know it’s not just another type of noodle – it’s one of the better options out there if you’re gluten-intolerant.
Stews are one of my favourite dishes to cook. It’s easy, all you need is one big pot and everything melts together to create a hearty home-cooked meal. Here’s one that’s healthy, plant-based, vegan and just so delicious. Enjoy!
To many people I’ve met in Europe, sweet potatoes (patate douce in French) are exotic, strange or something they just ignore in the supermarket. In Asia, this root crop is a widely available and cheap staple food, perhaps not appreciated enough for its true nutritional value. But ever since it got more popular in health-conscious circles, a gamut of recipes have surfaced using the humble sweet potato.
Two of my close girl friends and I have a good laugh whenever any of us makes this recipe. The saying goes that there are people who come into our lives simply to teach us something, after which they inevitably leave. Well, a few of my friend’s ex-boyfriends have each left a recipe we all love and this one is from one of them.
