Kitchen Tip – Spices Storage

When it comes to spices, the way you store them is just as important as you cook them.

Storing them in an airtight container is a no brainer. Even though spices tend to have pretty good shelf life, if care is not taken in storing them properly, you’ll notice the vibrancy of the spices (both taste and colour) will deteriorate through time.


Cranberry Almond Loaf {Made with Olive Oil}

A special day calls for special outfit and treats.

Last Friday was our first Mufti Day (casual Friday) at work. I was excited because

(a) it was Friday; and

(b) I bought this really nice top a few days before and I’ve found a day to show it off. :P

I must admit I get excited really easily…

As long as it’s pleasant and out of the ordinary, I’m excited.

To celebrate this special Friday, I made this cranberry almond loaf for morning tea at work.  Don’t you just love short morning teas at work? :)


Mixed Capsicum & Ricotta Lasagna [Meat Free] & San Remo Competition

Despite being nicknamed “fan tong” (a cantonese term for rice bucket) since I was a child, I’ve found myself slowly expanding my love for carbohydrate from rice to pasta. This realisation came about when I was re-organising my pantry  in the past weekend and uncovered partially empty boxes of dried pasta in various shapes and sizes which I intend to deal with some time in the future, hehe!
