Peanut Noodle Salad

Posted 2:47pm Sunday 4th October 2015

I thought I had escaped the joy of 21sts but, before I knew it, it was my own brother’s turn. He decided to have it at the local bowls club and invite 100 of his closest friends. Of course it went without saying I was volunteered to the catering post. Mum was a little ambitious on the menu Read more...

Procrastibaking: Vanilla Cupcakes

Posted 2:42pm Sunday 4th October 2015

During my day at home being the world’s worst sick person, I not only managed to make a cake and a batch of meringues, clean the kitchen, vacuum the flat and write a blog post, I also whipped up some classic vanilla cupcakes for SPCA cupcake day. While there are oodles of recipes out there Read more...

Cinnamon Churros with Salted Caramel

Posted 1:24pm Sunday 27th September 2015

In my opinion, churros are some of the best doughnuts ever. Why, you ask? They have the greatest surface area to volume ratio, meaning more crispy, sweet, cinnamon bang for your buck. I recently (aka yesterday morning) came back from a trip to South America. Over there they make these slightly Read more...

Savoury Muffins

Posted 1:16pm Sunday 13th September 2015

My best friend Sophie M loves savoury muffins. Like crazy loves. She will buy one almost every day to have for morning tea. In her muffin quests, she has come to be quite the connoisseur. I always get really nervous when I make them for her for fear they will not live up to her high standards. For Read more...

Banana Pancakes

Posted 2:02pm Sunday 6th September 2015

I stumbled across this trend of banana pancakes on the interwebs last week while procrastinating something chronic. I think I ate them for dinner three nights in a row, each one smothered in lush peanut butter, of course. I enjoyed mine this morning with some quick blueberry compote and some Read more...

Massaman Roast Beef

Posted 12:57pm Sunday 30th August 2015

I got really excited at Pak’nSave the other day. Every time I see a beef roast on the cheap, I buy it without really thinking.      I always slow cook my beef roasts, so this one has been sitting in my freezer for a few weeks now while I thought of ways to make it slightly Read more...

Skinny Soup

Posted 1:43pm Sunday 16th August 2015

I make a lot of cakes. Pastries, slices, anything baked really. I even have a site called Sophie Likes Cake. You can probably guess that because of this I would also consume a lot of cake. In an attempt to counteract my calorific hobby, I also go to the gym. A lot. I also tend to eat a lot of Read more...

Pho Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup)

Posted 1:06pm Sunday 9th August 2015

Pho, pronounced “fa” is a clear broth soup full of noodles, herbs, chilli and the meat of your choice. It is really healthy and has flavour enough to knock your socks off. The broth is the most important part of this whole dish. Making your own really makes a difference but if you Read more...

Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles

Posted 2:40pm Sunday 2nd August 2015

O nce you have all the ingredients, assembling this noodle dish couldn’t be simpler. In fact, it is a really cheap and easy mid-week dinner option. Once you have your chilli oil, it lasts for yonks in your cupboard, and the sauce is a couple of ingredients simmered together. I recommend Read more...

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Bowls

Posted 1:53pm Sunday 26th July 2015

I first tried out this recipe with a lamb roast. Awkwardly,  though, my flatmate unplugged my slow cooker so she could use the coffee grinder (very understandable) but forgot to plug it back in (the caffeine had not yet been consumed, brain function was low). This meant that it did not Read more...
