Quiche Lorraine

Quick note: I’m doing a bit of work on the website, so it maybe down for a bit. I’m not particularly fond of quiche, especially vegetarian ones. But this summer, it was something I was really craving. Originally a Quiche Lorraine was made of eggs, cream and smoked bacon. It was only later that cheese…

Jack-O-Lantern Cake

Well, it’s the last day of Halloween, I hope everyone is doing something fun. If you haven’t made something cool for Halloween yet, here’s something you could try. A jack-o-lantern pinata cake.

Plus I really wanted protein that meal.  For the stir fry: Oil Garlic, minced Red chilies, thinly sliced Boneless chicken breast, cut into bite sizes Fish sauce Dark soy sauce Sugar Basil leaves Heat the oil in a…

Brookies

With Masterchef Australia having started a few weeks ago, everyone is trying out recipes from the masterclass. I however decided to try a recipe made by one of the contestants, Brookies. They are basically brownie cookies meaning they are crusty on the outside and gooey on the inside. Its the sort of thing I’d eat…

Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Pasta

It’s the sort of thing I’d whip up in a hurry for dinner, or a light lunch. Chances of you having most if not all the ingredients in the house is quite high so it’s a sort if no sweat recipe. It’s also the kind of recipe in which you don’t have to adda certain…

Spaghetti Carbonara

I’ve made this for years, but this recipe is a new one I tried. I originally saw the recipe on one of Nigella’s show and have made it that way for years. But this recipe is mix between hers and Jamie Oliver’s. For the spaghetti: Bacon Spaghetti 3 egg yolks 120ml cream Parmesan Cream Cook…

Pork and Beef Burger with Hassleback Potatoes and Slaw

Something perfect to make at a barbecue this summer, an amazing burger with some hassleback potatoes and slaw. It’s really simple to put together and make. I did it for a bunch of people coming over on the weekend, and it was really simple. I didn’t put each burger together and serve, but instead served…

Creme Caramel

An all time favorite and super easy to make. And I’m not talking about the box version you get in the market that comes ready with the caramel and all you have to do is add milk. I’m talking about using 4 ingredients and spending less than 10 minutes putting it together. For the creme…

Creme Brulee

My absolute favorite thing ever. I have eaten three of these in the last 24 hours, since making them and am really trying to stop myself from eating the last. It’s surprisingly easy to make and doesn’t really take too much time. For the creme brulee: 290ml cream 1 vanilla pod, or some vanilla bean…

Chocolate Chip Muffins

There are a variety of different muffins in the world, but my absolute favourite is a chocolate chip muffin. It’s one of the pastries I pick up in a breakfast buffet in a hotel, or for a quick breakfast before school. The recipe used is almost the exact same as the lemon, poppy and flax…
