Peking Duck Pancakes

I recently had a dinner party, and I decided the theme would be Asian. I settled on peking duck pancakes for the entree, because at the restaurants, they always charge you an arm and a leg for 2 measly pancakes, well, I wanted to see how much it would cost to have pancakes for 10!… Continue reading Peking Duck Pancakes

Ben’s Apple Crumble

Ben and I first met learning to dance Salsa. We were both beginners, and had finally mustered up enough courage to learn how to dance properly. We didn’t really get to know each other until I invited Ben and our other Salseros to my house for a party. Ben worked his way to my heart… Continue reading Ben’s Apple Crumble

Tom Yam Goong

We arrive, and park the car, and Lola loses her mind. She is so completely overstimulated by the… Continue reading A Pooch Affair 2017

Kung Pao-esque Chicken

I decided to try something a bit different one weekday dinner. Ben makes a pretty mean lemon chicken, so I wanted to give him a run for his money with a kung pao chicken. I found a really good recipe from Jamie Oliver, I quite like his recipes, they’re very sensible, and he’s a very… Continue reading Kung Pao-esque Chicken
