Chicken Miso Kale Soup

Its been bitterly cold in the evenings lately, and on nights after a gruelling workout and/or especially when Night Owl’s out and I know I’m just cooking for one, this recipe has become my new favourite. It’s a recipe I found on Good Food by Jill Dupleix (link here) and originally when I first saw it I…

Easy Minestrone

So my body transformation challenge is locked in and ready to go mid-June. I’m somewhat apprehensive but also excited – I usually indulge in too much comfort eating during the cooler months, and so having someone monitor my intake and/or having an element of competitiveness will mean I’m more ready for bikini season towards the…

Taiwanese Beef Stew Noodle Soup

It’s supposedly 18 degrees today but with the sideways rain it’s feeling more like 9 degrees. The secretary at my work has had the worst luck of booking a Vivid light show cruise – for those not in Australia, Vivid is a two-week long event when Sydney city puts on their flashiest light shows and…

Cauliflower & Parmesan Soup

Back when I was in early primary school, I remember both my parents were away from Sydney at one point and The Sister had taken me to the supermarket to stock up on groceries. We were in the soups aisle, looking at the neat and orderly rows of canned soup and dehydrated packet soup and discussing…

Roast Pumpkin & Garlic Soup

Golden Century

Another year down, and the question that’s asked is: ‘Where do you want to review for my birthday?’ The Sister knows me too well! But I ultimately let her narrow down the choices and it was a toss up between an old favourite, BBQ King, or the yet-to-visit Golden Century a stone’s throw away from…

Ippudō

I’m not sure why, but there’s a part of my personality where I enjoy being the black sheep of the crowd. If everyone is raving about a particular movie, book or restaurant, I generally will steer clear of it. While I know that I will eventually see/read/eat it, a part of me wants to shut…

Sesame Teriyaki Chicken with Miso Udon

After a simply exhausting week with work and blogging, then a somewhat rowdy night with the girls on Friday night, I was dearly craving some me-time alone, and was grateful that The Sister was out of the house on date night on Saturday evening. I’ve been eating out a little more often than I would…
