Recipe: Stuffed Squid

One of the excellent things about being in Cambodia and living opposite a local market is the access to super fresh food every day. On any day I can wander across the road in the morning, collect any ingredients I might want for the day or evening meal, hand over a small amount of cash […]

I recently posted this on our friend, Jimmy (from Jimmy Eats World) blog to help enlighten his peeps to the challenges of cooking in Asia, and the awesome food adventures you can have.  Stove-top, rice flour pizza is amazing…but what do you think?? Cooking dinner at home here in Phnom Penh is limited to what […]

Chicken is a staple in most peoples homes. Its grilled, fried, baked, crumbed and everything else in between. It can be bland if cooked poorly but oh so delicious when cooked well.  This way that I have been cooking it lately has satisfied a number of cravings we have had for roasted chicken and also […]

Mexican Meat Sauce

Mexican (or tex mex or whatever bastardisation you eat of it) is one of those cuisines that is pretty popular and pretty damn tasty. I will admit that I haven’t probably had true Mexican food but I do enjoy eating the tex-mex american style stuff. All that spice and sauce and corn chips n stuff. […]

DIY Refried Beans

I recently purchased a bag of black beans. I saw them, I think I was feeling healthy at the time, so I bought them…and then they sat in the cupboard for a while because I really had no idea what to do with them. Put them in a soup? A stew? Then it came to […]

Palak Paneer is one of my ultimate and always ordered Indian dishes. I love the creamy spinach purée and especially like the grilled cheese stuff that is inside the delicious sauce.

Pickled Beetroot

Beetroot is one of those vegetables that just screams summer (and Christmas!) for me. Mum always grabs a whole bunch of them and makes up a big bowl of pickled beetroots to have on hamburgers, in salads and on sandwiches and I have recently noticed them in some of the markets here in Chiang Mai.

Recipe: Pla Pad Cha

Pla Pad Cha / Pad Cha is a really delicious dish that represents everything “Thai”to me – spicy, saucy, sour and crispy. I first came across this dish at a small hut on the side of a late called Huay Tung Tao in Chiang Mai. It is served with a side of sticky rice which […]

I am now in the process of cooking up a slew of tasty Mexican recipes for a new website. AWESOME. So far I have cooked 2 types of ‘chilli’, fajitas, guacamole, Mexican rice and….i think that’s it. What I like about Mexican food is that I can spice it up as much as I like…and […]

Beer Fajitas

Ages ago Mick and I looked at how much salt/fat/crap is in the pre-made fajita mix packets that you buy. I was horrified. So much rubbish just to make something taste good. So I decided that we should just stop being so lazy and make our own marinade. SURELY its not that hard. Turns out […]
