Banana Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Freckles

For a few months now, I have been an active member of an Indonesian Foodie Group on Facebook called #FOODWAR. In that particular community, some active members always post and share the many delicious things they make, every day, anytime of the day. This in effect gave me constant stimulation and some ideas on what […]

Zucchini + Cheddar Scones

There is this tricky business about practicing Ramadan in the Summer time. I found that my eating/food consumption power is greatly diminished. Not only that, I have literally only about 6 waking hours to eat. Two hours of which is best used for sleeping, since it’s like midnight to 2 am before I get up […]

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!’.

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 […]

Apologies for the delay, but here’s the second recipe I promised for asparagus celebration. Jamie Oliver’s recipe bank is almost always my first go to place in search of inspiration for seasonal foods. I have a bunch of his cookbooks – at one point in time I even had all of them, but the man […]

Jerk pinto beans + couscous

I’m having a bit of obsession over beans these past few months. Went berserk and got myself quite a large collection of dried beans the other week, from black eyed peas to garbanzo beans, pimento, black beans, multiple kinds of lentils, lima beans, edamame beans, soy beans,  mung beans. Beans, beans, BEANS! Human truth: You can’t have […]

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 […]
