I don’t really cook a lot when C travels, as I find it incredibly dull to cook for myself every evening. Instead I tend to make a big bath of ‘something’ on Sunday or Monday and then eat my way through whatever it is throughout the week. Not very inspiring, but practical. Keep Reading
We are almost at the tail end of the Chinese New Year celebrations, where we say goodbye to the the year of the Wooden Goat and welcome in the year of the Fire Monkey! Doesn’t life already sounds so much more exciting ;)
On Saturday night we were invited to a Singaporean friend’s housewarming and Chinese New Year celebration here in Brasilia. It was potluck, and I immediately knew what I wanted to bring. Nothing says ‘Chinese New Year’ more to me than Pineapple tarts, and as this is such a popular biscuit in Singapore, I thought they would also bring a little bit of home comfort during this very important celebration to my new friend.

So, I posted this picture a few days ago on my LCHF Club instagram account, and have got quite a few requests for the recipe:
Carbonara with zucchini noodles – it is quick, easy and delicious. It doesn’t matter if you are watching your carb intake like I am or not, as it is a wonderful way of getting some extra veg in your diet and making a change to your usual routine.
Mexico City will always have a very special place in my heart. In fact a year and a half after leaving Mexico, both C and I still miss the country, the life we had, and our friends dearly. The older more travel weary Foreign Service Officers say that your first post is always your favourite, and I think there is an element of truth to that.
Our life in Mexico had so many firsts and life milestones. Not only was it the first time C and I lived in the same country, it was also the first time we lived together! So many experiences go hand in hand with that such as discovering ourselves and each other, as well as discovering the country we were living in. It was also during this time, that we got engaged, adopted our beloved Mexican street cats and got married. Ultimately Mexico was where our family started.
Yes, you did read that right! Bacon Jam is probably one of the most amazing food creations that I have come across, its sweet, its savoury and its smoky all at the same time. Basically it is the best jam you will come across, and no longer will you waste your time with that strawberry nonsense ;)
Last Friday I made possibly the easiest and most delicious curry I have made to-date. It was one of those dishes, that when I tasted it, I thought to myself – did I really make that?! It was delicious, and I was excited. Yes, I get incredibly excited when something that tastes so good is made by myself – spatula in hand I did a little jig and then than called C over to taste it. I expected him to break out into a little dance too – naturally that didn’t happen, but he did agree it was delicious. Keep Reading
