Lemongrass Chicken Wings Recipe

lemongrass chicken wings recipe

Once upon a time there was a pregnant woman. Her father-in-law, who was a pretty kick-ass cook, prepared chicken wings for her. She enjoyed them immensely and he was delighted. He then proceeded to cook chicken wings for her every single day of the week. The child that was born became a chicken wing eating monster, devouring all chicken wings within sight. That woman is my mother and that child is me.

So, truth be told, I’m not sure if there is correlation between eating foods during pregnancy and the child’s favourite food after they’re born, but I do know this: I am really amazing at baking chicken wings.

Hearty Beef Stew Recipe

beef stew recipe ingredients

Recently, my boyfriend and I fell sick. More accurately, he fell sick and dragged me down with him (I may or may not have gone willingly). So as we sat sniffling, and weakly hacking up phlegm (TMI?), I couldn’t help but crave a large dose of hearty beef stew. It’s just one of those things that you want when it’s too cold to go outside, and you’ve realized that that the only thing starving when you’re ‘starving the cold’, is yourself.

Sautéed Pork Neck and Kimchi Recipe (Spicy)

Kimchi pork neck dinner recipe 2

How did I ever live without knowing this delicious sautéed pork neck and kimchi recipe? When my aunt first cooked this for me, I was hooked. The explosion of flavour, the spicy tang, the crunch in the kimchi, the spring in the pork neck, my brain short-circuited and I was undoubtedly in foodie heaven.

My Aunt noted that this was a lazy person’s short-cut to a fast and delicious home meal. I almost didn’t believe her when she told me that it only required 2 ingredients and less than 10 minutes to cook from start to finish.

Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Cocoa coated chocolate truffle This chocolate truffle recipe is very easy to make and I thought I’d share it, especially with Valentine’s day coming around the corner. When I was a kid, I would eat truffles by the dozen from those pretty gold foiled packages that only seemed to appear around Christmas time. For a treat that seems so fancy, it really surprised me when I learned that making chocolate truffles only require three main ingredients and next to no kitchen experience. (more…)

Classic Butter Cookie

This is a super easy recipe that produces a delightfully crispy and classic butter cookie. As you can see, I’ve also added a dollop of peanut butter to each cookie and mixed in cranberries with some others. My mother usually bakes them with pecans. You can be imaginative and add in your own nuts/dried fruits such as pecans, walnuts, raisins etc. (whatever you can think of).

Super Sponge Cake

Sponge Cake in 10-inch Angel Food Cake Pan

If you enjoy desserts that are light, moist and very subtle in sweetness, this amazing sponge cake recipe is for you. It’s great on its own and also yummy when paired with freshly whipped cream and fruit. Honestly, the only bad thing I have to say is that this cake is so light, it feels like you’ve eaten nothing at all; and because it is so delicious, you’ll feel the desire to eat the entire thing in one sitting.
