Eggplant Kasundi

Eggplant, or aubergine, or brinjal, has become one of my favourite vegetables over the years. It’s fabulous in any type of cuisine be it Chinese (in spicy garlic sauce, yum!), Greek (Moussaka, my favourite), French (Raaaaatatouille), Japanese (Nasu Dengaku, anyone?), Malay (Sambal eggplant… and more), you name it, there is bound to be a recipe…

Zespri 14-Day Challenge: Kiwi in a Salad

Here’s a short and sweet (quite literally actually) post before heading off to yet another gig. First of all, I’d like to share this with you: another feature of Yours Truly, this time on Emmagen.com (Malaysia’s Online Fashion & Lifestyle Blogazine). Just click on this link and it will get you there. 🙂 Also, I’m…

Zespri Kiwifruit 14-Day Daily Scoop Challenge

Can I see a show of hands (figuratively) how many of you like Kiwifruit? How often do you eat them? I will be honest to say that Kiwi is not on top of my list when I go groceries shopping. Even though it is tasty and packed with nutrients, I am often distracted by other…

Tofu Cheesecake with Strawberry Compote in a Jar

Couple of nights ago, I posted a photo on facebook and had many of you guessing what I was making. There were a lot of guesses from ice cream, yoghurt, Tau fu fa, to Panna Cotta with Peanut Butter Brittle (hahaha this is really not quite as fancy as that) and even Tapai (fermented rice,…

Simplot Food Blogger Cook Off Competition Final

When I heard about the Simplot Food Blogger Cook Off Competition from my fellow bloggers, I knew that I would have to join this competition. Some of you might remember that sometimes last year I joined my very first cooking/baking competition and it sure has got me pumped for more challenges like this. The process…

Spanakopita (Spinach and Feta) Turnovers

Ask any ordinary home baker what their biggest fear is and you’ll probably hear puff pastry most often. In fact, most Chefs don’t make puff pastry from scratch, as good frozen version is readily available anyway. After succeeding in shortcrust pastry, I’ve been promising myself to tackle puff pastry at home for the longest time….

Roti Jala (Lacy Net Crepes) with Vegetable Curry

Oh my! I have not been so knackered for a long time (equivalent to about 3 x 14 hours shift in the hospital I think)! The 2-day Future Music Festival Asia partying has really worn me out but I’ve never had so much fun. Will blog about it soon. It’s funny how the first time…

Baked Egg in Mushroom Tartlets (Delia Smith)

I’m a little embarrassed to say that I’ve never heard of Delia Smith (English Cook/TV Presenter) prior to this Cook Like a Star bloghop event. And after browsing through her website deliaonline.com I’ve decided that I love this woman. Her recipes are simple, straight forward but attractive and nourishing at the same time. There are…

Jalapeño Cheese Cornbread

Feeling extra lethargic lately and wondering why the time goes by so quickly. Then I realised that this week I’ve gigged Monday, Friday and made a little guest appearance on Wednesday at another show. No wonder I’m sitting here dazed, after my long rehearsal in the afternoon with my boys. I’m not sure if this…
