Pasta Alla Vodka with Porcini Mushrooms Posted by: | May 5, 2011

I love cooking with wine. I get high just thinking about tossing wine into a bubbling sauce and hear the alcohol sizzle madly into a mesmerizing steam, which I would inhale deeply with my eyes closed, and go: “Mmmm… wine!” Don’t even get me started on the excitement (and jitter) I get from flambĂ©-ing alcohol […]

Pasta with Squid, Tomatoes and Capers Posted by: | July 4, 2010

And yet another week of no blogging. I’m so sorry guys! There are so many changes coming up in my life that I’m just so overwhelmed and can’t even get myself to even watch the latest Nigella Express. Sigh. However, Gym night is a good excuse to cook ahead as I’m always monstrously hungry after […]

Pasta with Eggplant (Brinjal) and Balsamic Vinegar Posted by: | May 21, 2010

I am extremely tired right now, after a happening day at work and an intensive workout at my Spinning class today, followed by last minute grocery shopping just before shops closed. Fortunately I did not have to worry about dinner tonight. as I warmed up yesterday’s dinner, which still tasted perfectly. That’s what I do. […]

Hot Summer’s day Lunch Party Posted by: | May 17, 2010

I decided to have a lunch party for the first time on this weekend. It’s kind of challenging as I wouldn’t have much time to cook and prepare in the morning (I’m incapable of waking up before 10am on weekends). Which means, I would have to get all ingredients by Friday after work. So every […]

Pasta with Mini Portobello Mushrooms + Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce Posted by: | April 30, 2010

I love sauce-less pasta, such as Aglo Olio. It’s a good excuse to load on the good quality extra virgin olive oil and garlic, “LOTS OF GAAARLIC” (Martin Yan accent). Plus, it’s super simple to make too. I managed to grab a pack of mini portobello mushrooms on the way back from work and that […]

Classic Tomato Sauce Pasta (from Jamie Oliver’s "Food Revolution") Posted by: | April 20, 2010

It’s Monday and I had to start the day earlier than usual for a work event. 11 hours later, I came home tired and still stuffed from the teabreaks and lunch buffet during the day. Plus, it was pouring outside. This calls for a really quick and simple dinner so that I can chill in […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs a la Jamie Oliver Posted by: | April 13, 2010

I made this dish yesterday night and heated it up again for dinner tonight. It still tasted “Perfect Italiano” (and I did use “Perfect Italiano” parmesan cheese for this). Perfect heat-up meal for a Monday night when I didn’t want to have any action in the kitchen. Just recuperate from the first day of the […]

Brocoli and Pesto Pasta: My first step towards "Jamie’s Food Revolution" Posted by: | April 5, 2010

It’s the last day of my long Easter weekend. Bummer. Yesterday I went a little crazy at shopping and might have spent my budget for a food processor (which I am dying to buy) on this season’s new arrival apparels. Sigh. I also bought myself 2 new cookbooks: “Jamie’s Food Revolution” by Jamie Oliver, and […]

Sunday Pasta Dinner Posted by: | March 29, 2010

Only 1 day into blogging my cooking and I already have my first kitchen accident. My kitchen door is transparent glass, and I stormed out of the kitchen when it was still closed. Totally slammed my face and my spectacles made a small cut into my face. It was such a loud bang and my […]
