Loom Knitting

Over these past 2 months, the MM family have packed up our flat and moved to another condominium. This meant less focus on cooking and more on packing/unpacking! To keep my mind (and fingers) busy in the evenings, I picked up a new hobby; loom knitting. What is loom knitting, you ask? It’s no-needles-knitting; instead…

Hoisin Duck Tortizza

One of the best things I find about living in Singapore is getting access to foods that aren’t as common in Australia. I love prata, char siew pork, siew mai and bao, wantan mee, Hainanese chicken rice; I could be here forever. But one of my absolute faves is smoked duck. It is sooooo much…

Broken Bikkie Fudge

I have a biscuit barrel in my pantry that is reserved just for the dregs of the bikkie world. I’m talking about the last 2-3 stale biscuits in the packet that everyone decided they didn’t like, or that solo broken cookie that nobody wants to touch, or those final 3 Tiny Teddies that your child…

Rockmelon Ice Cream

One of the greatest things I ate when I was in Japan last month wasn’t sushi, katsu, or udon, it was a simple ice cream cone from a convenience store. CTO, Miss G, and myself visited the Bengal Cat Forest when we were in Kyoto (the bengals were adorable and so cuddly, one slept on…

Sweet Potato Brekkie Bowls

It is amazing how side-tracked you can get when everyone in the household is sick. First it was CTO, then both Miss G and I copped it. And then we went on holiday, which we came back a few days ago. We went to Japan, it was awesome! So, I do apologise for my absence….

Vanilla Buttermilk Waffles

I love waffles, always have. If you stick pancakes or waffles in front of me, I’m always going to choose waffles. No contest. I just love the way those little squares catch all the melty buttery-syrupy goodness and make teeny tiny bathtubs, and they are soooo much crunchier than a pancake! Waffles were a fancy…

Milo Cheesecake Cups

I think this is one of the most Australian, yet also the most Singaporean, dishes I’ve ever made. Let me explain. My generation was weaned off of our mothers milk and onto a combination of Milo and Cottee’s cordial, with Swap-n-Go soft drink from the servo being given out on special occasions. And we had…

Kit Kat Crunch Fudge

One of my local cheapie shops has a great selection of sweet stuff, and recently they’ve had out a big range of different Kit Kats. Normal, Chunky, mint, orange, green tea, and all shades in between; it’s Kit Kat heaven. And best of all, it’s all cheap! What else am I to do but make…

Banana Frozen Yogurt

Right before we left to go on a month long holiday in November, we had a bunch of bananas that had started to ripen up  very fast. I had this grand delusion of making a big batch of banana bread muffins in the air fryer, but as we all know, Procrastination and I are old…

Juicy Jelly Icy Pops

I bet if you go into your pantry, you will find more than a few packets of jelly crystals. I’m right, aren’t I? When I’m living in Australia, I normally have at least at least 5 packets of jelly crystals in the pantry. There are just soooo many flavours, I just want to get one…

White Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Would you believe that I had made this at the beginning of November? You would? Yes, I know, I had been Little Miss Procrastinator in the good ol year that was 2015. Now that Miss G is going to school for 5 days a week and an extra hour a day (my baby! 😭) I…

Happy Holidays

Have a very safe and happy holiday season, from my kitchen in Singapore to yours! XO Mandi
