I am not much of a breakfast cereal eater, but certain cereal-topping drinks have caught both my love and attention. Jolly Pong (죠리퐁) is one such cereal, with a light, crisp exterior and airy interior, and I often found myself finishing a bag within a sitting.

One of the first posts I ever made was about one of my favourite drinks, the London Fog (but iced). While it still remains one of my favourites, sometimes it can be fun to experiment.
Lavender is a great complement to earl grey tea, and since we’re currently in the midst of a seemingly endless heat wave, I’ve also made this latte iced. Continue reading Lavender Earl Grey Latte
Shakshuka is one of those dishes that, upon viewing it, I instantly knew I would like it. Despite not being a huge fan of tomatoes in the past, there was something about the vibrant sauce that attracted me. And when I first sampled the dish, my suspicions were proven true.

I spoke about my love for Heksenkaas before, and the lack of availability meant I was left to try and figure out the recipe on my own. Continue reading Heksenkaas
My mom’s favourite cakes are either carrot cake (hold the cream cheese icing) or pound cake, both dense and heavy cakes. Oddly enough, she does not enjoy apple pie because the apples are often cooked to a mush, but she enjoys apple cake so much so that when I first made it (accidentally salting the apples, frantically realizing after sampling an errant apple, and then rinsing the heck out of them before plopping them in the cake and praying to the salt gods to back off) that she asked me to make it again and again as apple season wore on.

Halfway through our stay, one of the rotating banchan (side dishes) made an appearance – bright white lotus root with citron peel. I don’t recall ever eating lotus root that had not been cooked in some sauce that eventually browned its appearance, and I was intrigued.

There are certain things that pique your interest for unknown reasons. I had been drawn certain dessert item seen online, and after sampling a convenience store version in Hakone before trying the coveted item at a cafe in Seoul, I was determined to try my hand at my own.

One of my default dishes (and likely many other students) in university was pasta; usually a jar of prepared sauce with my noodle of choice.
Since then, I’ve tried to branch out and make different types of pasta with homemade sauces, as it is deceivingly easier than expected. This recipe has sneakily taken the number one position for my favourite pasta in my heart, even beating out my beloved carbonara. I present to you the Korean-Australian fusion in the form of Toowoomba pasta. Continue reading Toowoomba Pasta
I’ve been fiddling around in the kitchen a lot more than usual, lately. While certain items may get their own post (from the past or in the future), here is a little round up of the little things keeping me (less in)sane. Continue reading While in isolation
