Quick & Easy Pasta

Sometimes you don’t want to spend ages prepping and making dinner. Sometimes, you just want something simple and delicious that doesn’t require a lot of effort. Despite all of the cooking and baking that I do, believe me when I say that I get it. I definitely spend my fair share of nights not wanting…

Chorizo Pull-Apart Bread

Week 3 of the Great British Bake Off was Bread Week. Bread Week is always an interesting one, because it can reveal some truly skillful bakers. I won’t forget Paul’s Bread Lion from Season 6 any time soon. So, as soon as the episode started – I knew that the signature challenge would be the…

Mojo Pork

Have you seen the movie Chef? If you haven’t, and you love food, you should watch it. It stars Jon Favreau and is partly about his re-discovering his love of cooking, without giving away the whole story. The film is full of delicious looking food, including Mojo Pork for Cubano sandwiches. The recipes were developed…

Pork Belly Tacos & Pineapple Salsa

I must firstly apologise, as I didn’t take photos of the pineapple salsa being prepared, only as part of the larger meal. However,this is because it is literally a matter of dicing all of the ingredients and mixing them together – so easy! In previous posts this week, you’ll have seen Mexican Spinach & Mushroom…

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…

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…

Garlic Brown Butter Beef Tenderloin

So, I’ve been trying out a vegetarian lifestyle during the week, in a way to help lower my carbon footprint (as well as my food budget). In doing so, I’ve been coming up with a variety of vegetarian meals and side dishes to share on the blog. Some of them are not pretty, so I…

Lasagna Two Ways

You know me. You know I am all about that comfort food life. And what isn’t comforting about a dish of lasagna to share with friends and family (or to feed yourself over a few days)? I haven’t made lasagna that often, as when you are making it from scratch it can be a two-…

Flank Steak Tacos

Ever since finishing my studies, my weekends have felt empty. I still see friends, run errands, and cook food, but I do find myself wondering what I have done with my day sometimes. It’s now at that time of the year where the weather starts to get unbearable in Hong Kong. The humidity is through…

Chimichurri Hanger Steak

I never used to cook steak very often at home, mainly due to my concern about cooking it properly or making it taste good. It’s not usually something I order on a menu if I go out, and it’s not something I need to eat very often. But when I do have it, I want…

Slow Cooked Barbecue Brisket

I wish I could tell you where my love of American barbecue comes from. I think barbecue sauce is the best thing in the world. I love nothing more than baby back ribs cooked to perfection smothered in barbecue sauce. The idea of doing a road trip around the barbecue joints in the Southern US…

Chilli Con Carne

I can’t believe I’ve been cooking for this blog for almost a year, and I haven’t put up my chilli con carne recipe! There was a time where I was known as the person to bring chilli to pot luck, usually alongside a tray of brownies. Chilli was my go-to when I wanted home-style cooking….
