Recipe: Tofu Laksa

I’m a big fan of spicy soups and this one is great with a really hearty spicy base and a lot of crunchy tofu and vegetables and noodles to make it extra delicious. You can add anything you like in including meat or seafood but I was in a crispy tofu mood when I was…

Recipe: Rainbow Lasagna

This is a LOT of work and it’s probably really best that you make your own lasagna noodles for best results too so it’s just work on work on work but you get something that is basically made for instagram and slightly worse than regular noodles and cheese lasagna. It’s hard to improve on a…

Recipe: Picnic Pie

I think of this as a perfect representation of what I think British food is like. It’s straight forward and to the point. A hunk of cooked sausage stuffed with some boiled eggs and wrapped in pastry. Nothing fussy or complicated, easy to carry in a lunch, easy to eat with one hand. It’s so…

Recipe: Kreplach

These are really delicious and you can speed up the whole process if you use store brought stock or just make a really big batch and freeze the kreplach dumplings separate from the soup. I do have to admit this is a chore to make all at once and takes a LONG time to come…

Recipe: Hainanese Roasted Chicken

I make roasted chicken every now and then but I never posted a recipe for it because there’s not much to it. This is the first roasted chicken I feel compelled to share because it’s extra delicious and has just enough steps for me to feel like it might be a recipe more than just…

Recipe: Oladyi (Yeasted Blini)

I call these blini (because they’re yeasted pancakes) but I had a friend from Belarus recently tell me that these are call oladyi there and that what I think of as blinz are her blini but whatever you want to call them they’re absolutely delicious and they make the perfect canvas for a variety of…
