Eggs en Cocotte

oh-so-very-pretty-eggs-en-coquette-TITLE

 My very first European city was definitely one to remember. It’s the one women dream about, the city of lights and the city of love, it’s the city that embodies romance – it is Paris, France. Two years ago I ventured to Paris by myself to visit my best friend whom I met on exchange in Singapore. She was from Stockholm but doing an internship in Paris and when I went over, she was on the very last leg of her internship and was heading back to Sweden soon. So on a whim, for my birthday treat and for hers, … Read more

 I know what you’re thinking… my grandma used to make those crocheted and knitted tea towels. Well I’m telling you that us young folk can have fun crocheting useful household items too.

She just so happens to be flying back for a trip home to the motherland in only a matter of hours.

Miso Cabbage Slaw

miso-cabbage-slaw-cover

 I love slaws. They make me very gassy at times, but I love the crunch and I love the tang. I also love fusion dishes that infuse the flavors of different cultures into  a traditional recipe. For instance, a miso-infused cabbage slaw. 

It’s nutritious, delicious and oh-so-very tasty. 

P.S. the manly hands in this post are the hands of my very talented assistant Eric (also known as, the boyfriend). This post is his claim to fame as he has been waiting for his chance to be featured in the blog. He wanted Greek god poses of himself, but fortunately for … Read more
