I’ve mentioned before that Chef is currently flat out busy with setting up a new restaurant local to where we live. It’s exciting and been brilliant to see the progress of the refurbishment over the last few weeks. However, it’s been hectic as he draws closer to the opening. The poor man is exhausted and every evening he’s got a list of things he needs me to do to help out. So while it’s exciting, the last few weeks have not exactly been easy. So you might think I was mad to pick this time to go on a diet. You’d be right but I did it anyway. Continue reading “Start Your Day The Spicy Way”
As you can see, I’m bloody late getting this recipe uploaded. Chef is in the process of opening a new restaurant and he has me running around doing a 101 things for him. I get roped in doing the admin stuff while he gets the fun stuff like picking out the tiles, the glassware and stuff. No, I’m not sulking. Not really. Continue reading “Lazy Asian Meal in Minutes”

I love homemade cakes. I mean, really love them. For this reason, I don’t bake very often as I have a tendency to eat everything I bake. I’m harking back to last Christmas. I ate 23 of the 24 mince pies that I made. My excuse, my husband and kids don’t like mince pies! Continue reading “Cake? Now you’re talking! Best ever cupcake recipe …”

Mainly, because it’s pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me write things I wouldn’t normally write. Continue reading “Do you know this man?”
With the race for the US Presidency almost at the finish line, I was reflecting on the skills that might be required to perform the job. And it’s a very big job. I quickly came to the conclusion that no single person can do the job perfectly.
So here’s what I think is just the solution. In fact, it’s revolutionary. The US needs to have a Dream Team who would collectively act as President. Each member of the team would be selected based on a specific skill. Continue reading “Dream Team for US Presidency?”
I’ve learned a lot in the last few years. Mostly that I’ve disposed of a ton of cash. Thrown it out, given it away, lost it. Sounds like I actually have a ton of cash, doesn’t it? Well I don’t and never have. And when I use the word ‘disposed’ I mean it in the literal sense.
Now older and with occasional bouts of wisdom, I look back at how careless I’ve been with cash, and not just my own cash either. Continue reading “It’s necessary, Darling”
As my book is currently only published in digital format, I’ve had a lot of queries from people who’ve never gone down the e-Book route before so this blog is especially for them.
