Turkey Open Burger with Chargrilled Pineapple and Avocado Cream

When a packet of turkey mince came on sale, I could not resist that $3 price tag for 500 grams. It's fresh AND free range. Coming home though, I decided to pair it with something expensive... an avocado that costs the same price as the mince itself! Avocados has come down in price a little since then but boy oh boy was an avocado precious when it was going for $3 or $4 per fruit. I came to realise how much our family love this. We baked it with eggs, we have it for breakfasts or in salads…

A blink of an eye and my little boy is now 10 months. I was cradling him in my arms in the hospital, and now.

One Pot Chili

A blink of an eye and my little boy is now 10 months. Where did all the time go? I was cradling him in my arms in the hospital, and now he is on the move! Chasing me with his fast commando crawling/creeping and pulling himself up on the coffee table. Parenthood never fails to amaze me. It totally tested my patience and endurance. It rekindled my love for coffee (even more so). It reminded me to be mindful and use my senses (after all, to a baby, everything is new). It showed me what…

More than Words: Salmon and Goats Cheese Muffins

Salmon and Goats Cheese Muffins

I know sweet muffins are popular. Blueberries, or a white chocolate with raspberries always tend to hit the spot. There are times though, that I do prefer savoury muffins. You may recall that my husband wakes up early for work. He sacrifices sleep so that he can spend time with us. Well, actually more with Asher as I usually pop to the gym for an hour (including travel time). This was one of my freezer/fridge friendly recipes as he could warm it up in the microwave as he prepares to go to…

I can never tell if Shakshouka is Spanish or Arabian in decent. Regardless, I love a mean shakshouka for breakfast. I recall the first one.

Shakshouka with Poached Egg

I can never tell if Shakshouka is Spanish or Arabian in decent. Regardless, I love a mean shakshouka for breakfast. I recall the first one I had was at Perth Art Museum in Fremantle. The tangy tomato and oozy egg yolk simply seduced me. I have good intentions to create this dish for breakfast. I told hubby 3 weekends that I will experiment and create this for him. However, when each weekend rolls along, there would be an excuse for me not to do it. Fed up, I decided that this could be a…

Zucchini Ham and Olive Loaf

One of the things we love is the portability of bread or bread products. It's not bread that we missed per say (although sometimes we do eat bread when it's from a good bakery), but just the convenience of it. Of course, there are times when it is nice to have something to dip into a hot bowl of soup. It's a textural thing. The soft fluffy nature of bread paired with warm soup just seems to be so comforting on a rainy and wet day. Sarah Wilson is big on "I quit Sugar". She found what worked…

Asher's Full Moon Celebration and Ginger Wine Chicken

They say parenthood seems to make time goes faster. I never quite get it till it happened to us. I'm not sure how the time flies. Perhaps it has got to do with the daily routine of changing diapers, feeding, burping, playing and sleeping. Or that soothing a baby can sometimes take longer than expected. Or perhaps, just staring at a newborn seems to make time stop (or go faster!). Even before my family arrived in Perth, discussions about the full moon party for Asher has already begun…

Roasted Eggplant, Pumpkin and Bacon Frittata

Asher is going to be 7 weeks young tomorrow! Just one more week and he is going to be 2 months old. Woah, that's massive. Is it september already? It seems just yesterday when it was July and I was waddling around the house, pottering around the kitchen. My baby boy makes cooing noises and when I place Mr Eeyore near him, I swear they were having a conversation. I am sure every mum says that, but I can't believe I can be so in love with a baby. Every small milestone makes me happy. What has…

Thai Larb Salad

Hello 2014! Truth be told, the year 2013 passed really quickly for me. I have not worked since mid June 2013, and it is as if time stopped when Asher arrived. However, I felt that much has changed in our lives. Yes, having a baby means we rarely head out in the evenings. That is a positive thing as we took time to wind down, relax and get things organised for the next day. Yes, there are sacrifices that we made. We are much more conscious about expenditure and we eat out less. We try not to…

Tender Red Wine Beef Cheeks

I thought I might document the games I play with Asher at home while I can still remember. They grow too quick I think. Asher is already 5.5 months now and I'm counting my blessings that I'm home with him. Certainly there are days when I miss the intellectual side of work and freedom in doing things by myself but I still wouldn't ask for anything else but him. In fact, I'm a little embarrassed that I have become one of those mums who gush about their child. Oh and wear gym clothes all day…

I get frustrated when someone tells me you can't feel full while eating clean. It's pretty hard not to feel full with a whole chicken breas.

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Cottage Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes.

I get frustrated when someone tells me you can't feel full while eating clean. It's pretty hard not to feel full with a whole chicken breast! I can't even finish one. That said, I do understand that it get be drying at times. Did I mention that I use the oven to cook ALOT? Many days, I prepare meals in the morning and stick it in the oven with a timer on. There are times when Asher needs me more or clings to me and I can't always predict when that can happen. When he settles or naps, I whiz…

Almond Coconut Crusted Chicken

The recent happenings at home means I cared for Asher by myself for a few weeks in Singapore. It was a truly humbling experience, as I reflected on the mums who are single parents or who have partners flying in and out. Perhaps I missed hubby but more so, I missed that extra pair of hands to look after Asher. Back in Singapore, I'm regularly faced with questions such as why am I not working? I guess the easy answer to that is Asher needs me and I have no other help in Perth. I'm sure that…

Sausage Egg Frittata

I can have this for breakfast, lunch or dinner any day! It's such a quick and simple recipe that I do not know why I have not done this before! The other day, hubby said to me that he realised how much his views of food has changed since I have tweaked our family meals to become clean and healthy. His line manager treated himself and team to frozen coke. Hubby took a few sips and couldn't have any more. He said he simply felt ill. Oh that was a proud moment for me. As a wife and mum, there…

Sweet Potato Coconut Tuna Patties

So there comes a point where I would like to share with you my post pregnancy weight lost. I wrote about my struggles here and here. So right now, I have managed to shed 20 kgs post birth (I dropped 10 kgs after Asher was born) and is now slightly below my pre-pregnancy weight. It wasn't easy and that took me 6 months to achieve it. (yes me and my big tum tum and massive weight gain at 37 weeks pregnant) I was glad though, that my focus wasn't about losing weight initially. It was about…

Chicken Pesto Zucchini Noodles

I was looking at my previous posts and it hit me that I never wrote about Zucchini noodles. I swore I thought I did! It's one of those food that I go to whenever I feel like having noodles. It's rare that I feel like having pasta- as for some reason, it always makes me feel heavy and gluggy. To think I used to cook pasta up every week without fail! I bought one of those vege twisters at 40% off at our local appliances store and boy was I hooked. I have since made long vege noodle strands out…

Do you like the new look of my little space here? It has been 4 years since I changed the look of this blog. Given there will be some new beginnings, I thought it was a good time for some changes. It certainly reflect my inner self. Less cluttered, clearer and generally older! If you are into social media, follow me on Facebook or even instigram- I would love to hear from you. I will probably posts photos of our life journeys and bakes/cooks that may or may not make it here. I am approaching…
