Walnut & Chocolate Chip Brownies

Yep. You better believe that the last recipe of the school year is a brownie recipe. I warned you that this blog could turn into a brownie blog over time. It’s already started! But these are the best, fudgy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside brownies ever. I apologise for being so quiet the past couple of weeks. We’ve been…

Vanilla Coconut Protein Balls

I’ve recently started going to Strongman sessions, which I am still in love with. It starts at an awkward time for me, at 11am, because I’m usually the type of person to get up early and have an early breakfast, then have lunch by 12. But I’ve had to mix my schedule up a bit…

Vegan Bowl of Green

I promised more vegetarian friendly dishes, and this one is easy as anything. I never knew green tea noodles existed until a friend cooked dinner for me a couple of months ago. They’re soba noodles, so they’re lighter that your typical egg and wheat noodles, if that’s important to you. You can add any vegetables…

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

Sometimes the thought of combining two amazing meals horrifies me. Why would we want to risk creating Frankenstein’s monster when the original is so damn good. But, if people never tried something new, we’d be stuck without the wheel or electricity, so I understand the excitement. Back in March a friend sent me a video…

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

I know I promised more vegetarian recipes, but this is too good not to post about. I ordered Jones’ BBQ Sauce after watching the Fab 5 work their magic during season 3 of Queer Eye. With the help of a friend and his friend, I was able to get the sauce from Kansas City to…

Cranberry Skillet Brownie

I feel like by the time I decide to stop adding to this blog, I’ll have 2 dozen brownie recipes on here for you to bake. I’m still a staunch believer in the basic, fudgy brownie, but I also feel that sometimes you need to shake things up a bit. Especially when you’ve got frozen…

Vegan Sun-dried Tomato & Artichoke Chickpea Pasta

I was browsing Marks & Spencer Food the other day, and came across chickpea pasta. It’s literally just chickpea flour and water – so it’s gluten-free and vegan. Plus being made of chickpeas, it’s also lower in carbohydrates for those who are trying to reduce their simple carb intake. On this same browse, I came…

Miso-Glazed Aubergine

I first tried miso-glazed aubergine about two years ago at Uma Nota, a Brazilian-Japanese fusion restaurant in Hong Kong. And I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s taken me this long to try and make it myself, and I can’t believe I waited this long. It’s so easy, and so delicious. Meat-lovers and vegetarians alike…

Vegetarian Stove-Top Tagine

I’ve had a few friends ask me to make more stove-top recipes as they don’t have ovens (thanks tiny HK flats), so have been looking into a few more recipes that don’t require any oven. It’s not been difficult, but they just don’t all look super presentable for the blog. I’ve also been experimenting with…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Chocolate and peanut butter is such a classic combination. The sweet and the salty, it makes for great desserts (and sandwich fillings when you’re a broke University student). It’s funny though, the rest of my family are not peanut butter fans. Just another thing that makes me the odd one out in my family. Not…

Spinach and Feta Puff Pastry

This is a vegetarian-friendly version of the Beef Wellington posted previously. I knew I wanted to make a vegetarian puff pastry so that I could maintain my vegetarian-during-the-week plan. It went down really well with everyone at work, as well as with me. Definitely a great vegetarian meal, especially with a side of grilled asparagus….

Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington was one of my favourite meals growing up. Mum made it for special occasions, and I was always going back for seconds and thirds. It was just so delicious. I’ve made it a few times for myself, but not in a while, and not in my tiny kitchen. I knew as soon as…
