Marble Pound Cake

  A pound cake always reminds me of my childhood years when my mum used to stash Sara Lee pound cake in the freezer. It was a treat, especially during the school holidays. I ate it cold or toasted. Have you tried lightly toasting your cake slices on  a pan and then finishing it off…

Penang Laksa, Cendol and 50 Shades of Sexy Mee Goreng

So, how many of you clicked on the link because it read… 50 Shades of Sexy…? It’s alright. No one’s judging. Ha! I promise, we’ll get there. Eventually. So, this week has been an exciting week as my birthday is approaching (12th March, if anyone’s interested!) and celebrations have started! Ever since our dating days,…

A very long overdue post – Food Trip to Penang (Part 1)

So, yes. It’s been a few many, many months since my last post. Things have been a little crazy with life at home while I learnt to cope with some food allergies. With all that craziness and a little bit of travel in December, blogging hasn’t been a priority. I’ve been cooking a lot but I…

Chorizo Summer Vegetables Soup

This week has been quite an uphill task, especially after the holidays. My brain is not quite functioning at its optimum. My heart’s still in Penang, lusting after late mornings and leisurely brunches. This happens every time we return from a trip. And then my hubby and I talk about how we miss the good…

Spiced Mushroom-Spinach Baked Eggs + Instagram madness!

Yes! As the title suggests, I’m the latest ‘victim’ of instagram. I’m really getting hooked at looking at other food bloggers’ food inspirations and photos. Instagram is a great way to get inspired about food and photography. So many amazing photographers and food ‘porn’ pictures but so little time. If you’re instagram, please do add…

Flourless Chocolate Pecan Cake

    We just got back from a short foodie getaway to Penang, Malaysia. Pictures and food posts from Penang will be put up very soon as I’m still sorting through the countless photos I’d taken. So, I picked up a few magazines at the airport en route to Penang and one of the magazines…

Prosciutto Melon Salad with Balsamic Syrup

With very little time and so much to do, I’ll attempt to type the quickest post for a very easy and simple salad which I made a few weeks ago. We’re leaving for a short getaway and so, the house is in a bit of a mess- not ideal conditions for taking photos. My apologies….

Leaner (but Meaner) Apple Plum Crumble

So, I sent the husband to buy back some fruits and he came back with enough to feed a village. My bad. I was too lazy to walk to the market to get them myself so now, I’ve ended up with a bigger problem- finish the 15 odd apples before they rot. So an apple…

A Homage to my Earliest Food Inspirations- My Grandparents

When I’m in my little kitchen cooking, especially when making Indian food, I’m often reminded of my maternal grandparents. My grandfather, A.A. Marimuthu, hailed from Tanjore, South India and came to Singapore when he was 18. Born a local Chinese, my grandmother she was adopted by an Indian lady after the Second World War. The…
