Prawn, Pea and Tarragon Salad

Last night after a day that consisted of eating fries, a sandwich that was loaded with cheese and goodness knows what else and then finishing off the weekend with pizza and beer, my body felt sluggish, bloated and pretty gross.  Sunday night is the perfect time to make some new week resolutions - even better [...]

Create a Delicious Cheese Board

I adore cheese. All types. I don't have a hint of cheese snobbery. I'm just as happy to eat mass produced tasty cheese that my kids favour for their sandwiches as I am to eat a specialist gooey cheese flown in from France. With the exception of cheese that isn't really cheese I will eat [...]

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

A friend of mine recently returned from a trip to Vietnam.  She is not only a friend but also my 'sometime' photographer and she took some very cool street photography while she was there.  My street photography is non-existent.  I like to think it's because I have two small children who have zero patience for Mummy [...]

Fresh Summer Drinks

The weather in Singapore continues to be hot hot hot.  If you live elsewhere in the world you could be forgiven for thinking the weather in Singapore is always the same...I guess compared to other countries it is.  But when you live here the smallest change in temperature or humidity can feel significant.  And recently [...]

Roasted Cauliflower & Hazelnut Salad

After a little hiatus, I have been straying back towards my favourite Middle Eastern flavours again recently. This week it has been all about roasted cauliflower salad.  Being the daughter of British parents, growing up my only experience of cauliflower was 'cauliflower cheese'.  I used to love it but mainly for the cheese sauce (to be [...]

Cake Fit for a Queen

It's the Queens birthday...well, actually, I'm not sure it's her actual birthday but everyone in Australia will be getting a long weekend this weekend to celebrate anyway.  Here in Singapore we will not be getting a day off, but I thought the least I could do was mark the occasion with a cake fit for a Queen...the [...]

Almond Milk

When we were young the only kind of milk available was that from a cow.  Growing up we lived in a small town in central New South Wales and lots of my friends had farms.   When I would have sleep-overs I remember feeling a bit put off by the milk at breakfast which had come straight [...]

Set the Table

Sometimes there is nothing nicer than inviting a friend over for dinner, making something very simple but tasty and sitting on the sofa while eating, chatting and sipping wine.  No makeup, no stylish clothes - nothing fancy and everything low key. Other times it can be nice to go all out with some proper entertaining. [...]

Thai Beef Salad

A couple of months ago I had some friends over for dinner.  After my recent Middle Eastern food obsession, I thought I would treat my guests to something different that didn't include pomegranate or tahini.   So I went with some Asian recipes instead.  We had Vietnamese spring rolls (totally addictive rice paper rolls fried and then wrapped in [...]
