Stuff yer squid!

*Sigh* So, am I the most lax food blogger, or what? Happy belated new year, dear readers. I hope you’re all having a fabulous 2010 that has so far been full of delicious food and amusing escapades, whether they be in or out of the kitchen. Unfortunately, the reason for my rather extended hiatus from […]

Marvellous Minestrone

Hi! Remember me? That’s right, it’s your friendly (virtual) neighborhood Kitchen Wench, finally burrowing out of the ether to confirm that yes, I am in fact still alive. I honestly can’t believe that I haven’t posted since the beginning of August – almost as much as I can’t believe that we’re nearing the end of October, and […]

A two-way with muesli

No, this is not a declaration of some strange new bedroom activity involving breakfast cereals, but rather two different ways you can serve muesli – a wonderfully fresh and tasty Bircher muesli, and a crunchy, full of flavour toasted muesli/granola that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways! Toasted muesli is a wonderful thing […]

Mochi mochi mochi, must be funny, in a rice grain’s world

An easy breakfast or mid-morning snack, they are the perfect treat for anyone on the go, and a wonderfully compact energy boost when you feel yourself running out of steam. However, […]

My exposure to most of the ones I know happened when I was in primary school and a family friends mother bought/discovered […]

The most magnificent noodle salad of all

A long time promised – and finally here it is! Our recipe for japchae, a magnificently multi-coloured noodle salad dish that is a must-have on any celebratory table. Though, like many Korean recipes, it is quite time-consuming, this extremely fragrant and flavoursome dish is well worth the time and effort it requires, and is guaranteed […]

Pasta in a flash – fresh, fast and super easy!

We’ve been having quite a few dinner guests recently, and that has meant that I’ve been on hand a fair bit preparing dinners and desserts for folks that are over, and usually dining on the leftovers the following day. However, one dinner that I prepared with a delightful seafood pasta – and during the preparations, […]
