Kimchi Egg Fried Rice

Kimchi egg fried rice is what happens when you take leftover rice down to flavour town for a makeover! I always find rice is kinda like spaghetti – it’s so easy to make too much. Which is actually perfectly fine because there’s so much you can do with cooked rice. With big flavours like garlic,… Read more »

G&T Grapefruit and Lime Cocktail

This G&T grapefruit and lime cocktail is EVERYTHING on a hot summer’s day! Sipping it by the pool out of a very trendy jar, only serves to heighten the experience. What’s more, it only requires a total of four very basic ingredients. I’m a sucker for a simple pink drink. If you’re avoiding alcohol, simply… Read more »

Summer Berry Mascarpone Tart

Berry season is my favourite season! Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and gooseberries (which I’m actually not really fond of) are everywhere right now. And the best use of fresh berries, has to be the summer berry mascarpone tart. This recipe is the KIS (keep it simply) theory in its truest dessert manifestation. Apart from their obvious… Read more »

Healthy Homemade Sushi with Brown Rice

Now before you go thinking “but sushi already IS healthy”, consider this – how many pieces of the sushi that you order at a restaurant is deep fried, covered in that delicious Kewpie mayo, dolloped with sweet chilli sauce, or doused with teriyaki – like my all-time favourite Tiger Roll. Even still, all that aside,… Read more »

Braised Leeks with Lentils, Bacon and Mushrooms

Braised leeks are banging! It makes me wonder why leeks have been such an overlooked member of the onion family – well, at least in my household that is. They provide all the flavourful umami of a brown onion, but with a lot more subtlety. Plus they offer a delicious sweetness that pairs amazingly with… Read more »

Asian Veg and Rice Bowl

This Asian veg and rice bowl would place at least in the top 5 for “Most Instagrammable Dish” – it’s that pretty! I love how packed with flavour it is despite how simple it is to prepare. It makes for a stellar midweek meal, but is gorgeous enough to impress guests, and tasty enough to… Read more »

Chocolate Custard Tarts with Strawberry Salsa

These chocolate custard tarts are a twist on the popular Portuguese pastry, pasteis de nata. My version adds a little chocolate to the custard, as well as a fresh strawberry and basil salsa to brighten things up. They’re great with tea or coffee, but why not fancy things up a little and serve them with… Read more »

“Fancy” Homemade Gnocchi with Chorizo

Homemade gnocchi is by no means an exact science. In fact, if you’ve never made it before, I suggest trying it with regular white potatoes first! I used orange sweet potatoes because I love their colour, but they’re a lot more moist than regular white potatoes, and even yellow sweet potatoes – this renders a… Read more »

Refried Bean Tacos and Parmesan Frico

I love refried bean tacos! Refried beans are so comforting and creamy, yet incredibly healthy too. Plus a little bit of Mexican always feels like a party! Usually I’d pair these with wraps, or even just dive into a bowl of them on their own, but this time I felt like having some fun… Did… Read more »
