Caramel creme cocktail


Okay, this is not a food recipe but it's still a recipe. The Boy has gotten into making cocktails recently and he's been treating me to some delicious creations. I'm partial to the sweeter cocktails. The tart or sour ones don't do anything for me. This one hits the spot for me.

Kimchi and minced pork noodles


I've been experimenting with more Asian cooking recently and came across a video using kimchi to cook in noodles. I thought it sounded interesting and well, I like kimchi. Wasn't sure how The Boy was going to enjoy it since the kimchi flavor is pretty strong. Turns out he loved it.

Creamy mushroom and bacon pasta


The Boy saw a friend of his post this recipe and asked for it. He said it looked good and wanted me to make it for us. Guess what? It is good.

Thai basil pork noodles


I love noodles. Doesn't really matter what kind of noodles, I love noodles. I especially love instant ramen noodles. They are a guilty pleasure of mine. These are not instant and they are delicious, but super easy to make. They really don't take more than 15 minutes to cook including prep.

Chili con carne supreme


I love chili con carne but don't have it often. I think I've only ever cooked it once or twice in the past. Of course, The Boy's mother makes a great chili con carne and he's used to the taste of hers, so I'm twitchy about him eating it and saying it doesn't taste like his mother's. He did that with a meatloaf I cooked once and I've never done it again. Now he only gets meatloaf when we visit his mom.

Chickpeas with tomato and fried eggs


I think I mentioned I've been watching a lot of cooking videos recently. They are my entertainment, relaxation, inspiration, and masterclass all rolled into one. I'm finding even if I don't cook the recipes I watch, I learn a lot of general knowledge about cooking and food, and some technique as well. It's generally a great education in bite-size pieces. I find it a fantastic learning experience.

Stir fried tomato and egg on rice



Over the years, my tastes have changed and as a result, my cooking has changed. This blog has seen me start to learn to cook. Experiment with all sorts of things. Buy a Thermomix (there are lots of Thermomix recipes here), go paleo, and now an Asian phase. There's still a huge mix of Western and Asian in my cooking but I'm expanding my horizons progressively. This is a journey.
