My Favorite Chocolate Cake

(Original recipe posted on July 7, 2012 and updated on September 1, 2013) Here’s a question for you, my OrangePot Friends… What do you do when you are in dire need of comfort? You see, yesterday was one of those days when things just sort of crumble around me. Nothing I can do seem to […]

Two Potatoes + Mushroom Bake

Quick! Before the month turn into September, I must put a post up! What did I make recently that was a hoot? It’s gotta be the 2 types potato and mushroom bake this past weekend. Since I returned from my Indonesia holiday a week ago, I had been sort of gunning for only vegetables and […]

Zucchini bread

I actually have another post brewing in the WordPress dungeon, but since I am not done yet with the goods, I will delay that for the weekend. Tonight I am putting up a quick one: Zucchini bread. Summer in Japan is almost identical with zucchini for me. Well, since  year 2002 anyway. Why? Because that’s […]

Lawar Ayam (Balinese Green Bean Salad with Chicken Dressing)

It is one of those hot Summer days that came way too early and lingered on too long. Ramadan (the Muslim fasting month) has started 5 days ago. With 38C days and the sun torching your skin if you’re out too long, all I want to do it soak in a pool of cold water […]

Sweet Potatoes + Kabocha + Nagaimo Cottage Pie

Something needs to be done about the lack of update in this blog. I was watching a video about “tips for blogging” and thought… dang, I should totally do that tip at 01:36 from Brooklyn Allergy Mom, she said (ever so wisely) – “My biggest tip is ‘Just do it!’. If you have another job, it doesn’t matter. […]

Vegetarian Tuesday

So, I’d like to think that I am a somewhat health conscious foodie. I tried with all my might to replace ingredients with the healthier alternative whenever possible. For as long as I can remember, I am always in a quest to find the best butter replacement. And no, I would never use margarine. Read […]

Cauliflower + Sweet Potato + Soymilk Creamy Puree

This can’t be right, it’s February 28 already! Better get one post up, or else it will be too quiet in the blog. I’m still here, folks. Still cooking, procrastinating, scheming. All good. Truth of the matter is, as an ode to getting myself back in shape, I returned to the trusted regime of Cardiologist […]

Thai Suki Hot Pot

13 days into the New Year and I don’t have very much pleasant things to say about  2013 thus far. And this is because I am going through the most annoying case of sniffles. Although not exactly sprightly, I don’t feel horrible and there is no serious fever to speak of. However stopping every 5 […]

Shabu shabu and 2013 resolution

It is the year of 2013, on the 9th of January to be very precise. I looked at my food blog, and in dismay I realized the last post I did was on October 6, 2012. Noting the vast gap between that post and this one, I have bitterly concluded that the so called “Grand […]

Vongole tagine

I just absolutely adore clams, especially in hot Summer days such as now. When cooked correctly, clams have the juiciest and freshest flavor, easy in the mouth and the stomach. It is also very versatile and can be eaten as it is, or as toppings for pasta or rice, or with chips on the side. […]
