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.
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.
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.
