Is there anything as delicious as breaking through buttery, flaky pastry and finding a creamy, delectable filling underneath? I think not. Which is why every so often the pot pie urge happens and I oblige all too happily. I made a pretty standard chicken and bacon pie filling and at the last minute decided […]
I feel like all I really need in life is a big bowl of chicken wings, some Ranch to dunk them into and an ice cold beer. What’s not to love? There are few things as satisfying to eat as chicken wings. I love when the glaze is so sticky that you are forced to lick […]
I have had the most intense curry craving for the longest time. Good curry. Made with good quality spices that form a rich sauce perfect for dunking Naan into. So last weekend when I was too lazy to cook, I decided to go to my favourite curry joint to get us dinner. When I got […]
As a little girl (and teenager), I was always amazed at how adventurous my mom was for someone who never traveled abroad. She would wear kaftans with exotic prints on them while the other moms at school would wear twin sets with jeans. She would wear huge pearl and gem stone rings, wear her very […]
I’m going to be honest with you. Low carb eating isn’t the hardest thing in the world after you accept that bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, cake, doughnuts and sugar are off limits. But then you remember that things that are crumbed just taste so much better and then you want to die a little because […]
This is without-a-doubt my absolute favourite lunch at the moment. It takes mere moments to throw together and delivers a punch of flavour like you can’t believe. The reason it’s so quick to put together is because I use things that I have lying in my fridge to make this salad. Leftover chicken, a […]
This is one of my favourite pastas to cook during summer when asparagus is available in abundance. It also helps that it can be made from prep to plate in under 30 minutes because the sauce gets made while you’re waiting for the pasta water to come up to a boil. I know many people […]

I’m often asked why my food tastes to good. And I’m always stumped for an answer because honestly, I just cook with really good ingredients and I know which flavours work together and which ingredients compliment each other. Somehow, that’s not the answer people are looking for. They want me to tell them about […]

I know. These chicken wings don’t look like anything you would drool over. But that’s kind of the point with Halloween, right? There’s something quite charming about food that’s made to gross you out. Like making red pepper hummus and calling it “Brain Puree” and serving it with crudite or simply labelling Prosciutto “Cured Epidermis” […]
I remember eating this chicken as a child, wondering how on earth my mom managed to make the most delicious chicken on earth when she was only in the kitchen for around 10 minutes. I loved how the glaze would stick to my fingers and I had to lick my fingers to get it off. […]
