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…

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…

Cold Brewed Overnight Coffee

It’s been an interesting few months over here on the Red Dot. The MM family has now been in Singapore for 2.5 months, and during that time we’ve moved into our flat, caught up with some old friends, celebrated Miss G’s 2nd birthday, and distantly welcomed our little newborn nephew into our family. And I’m…

‘Hawthorn’ Chocolate Honeycomb Ice Cream

Gourmet ice cream. We love the thickness, the supreme fattiness of the cream, and the way it clings to the spoon and coats your tongue as it glides down your throat. We love the 1002 flavours available, the exotic ingredients, and the posh names that have way too many words in it. But what we…

Chocolate Mudcake with White Chocolate Ganache

Today’s post is about chocolate cake, and lots of it! I was asked to make a cake for CTO’s cousin Miss A’s confirmation by my sister-in-law, and my only guides from Miss A was that she likes chocolate and her favourite colours are blue and green. I did a Pinterest search for inspiration, and this…

Sweet Chilli Cream Cheese Dip

Is anybody else a big fan of those Chilli Philly pourovers? My CTO and I love them, but always have trouble getting a good chilli sauce/Philly ratio. We eat it out of the tub gradually and don’t actually tip it upside down like we’re supposed to, so we always have hardly any sauce at the…
