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 […]

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. […]

Asparagus + Shrimp + Mushroom + Green Peas Soup

A few days ago, during yet another glorious weekend in Nagareyama (home of Kaz+Kelly+Baby Quinn), Kelly asked what we should be doing on the Sunday, since we didn’t exactly have any grand plans in place. Without thinking very much about it I blurted, “Well, how about going to Costco?” The Mouse, who was also there, looked at […]

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 […]

Carrot + Courgette + Orange Cake

I have deep love for Florence, so deep and gripping, like a teen girl’s infatuation that keeps getting more and more serious. Perhaps it has much to do with the Tuscan capital’s breathtaking landscape, amazingly delicious and honest meals, sound history… or maybe it’s just a combination of it all. On a trip there on […]

Mango Fro Yo

Don’t you feel like you’re about to evaporate into the very thick air of Japan’s Summer heat? It’s hot over here. H to the O to the T. H-O-T. HOT! Ordinarily I go to ice cream to remedy this suffering… However ice cream doesn’t quite hit the right spot when the Heat Master has turned […]

A Le Creuset Appreciation Evening

Did I mention that something fantastic happened last week? Well it did! On May 31, @LeCreusetUK in their official Twitter account tweeted about MyOrangePot.com and I am over the moon (and a little bit starstruck). Here’s what they say: @LeCreusetUK: “My first… OrangePot http://wp.me/p1W3hk-R via @wordpressdotcom – We love this Le Creuset story from blogger […]
