XO, Narrabundah – Take 2!

Ben had gone away on a work trip for 10 days to Central Australia, leaving me alone with the Devil Spawn. It was my first time alone with the puppy, as you can imagine, I was pretty knackered by the time he’d come home, especially as I had instituted a very strict toilet training regime… Continue reading XO, Narrabundah – Take 2!

A Pooch Affair 2017

A month ago, Lola, Ben and I attended “A Pooch Affair 2017” at the EPIC Exhibition Centre here in Canberra. It was basically a massive doggie expo, and Lola and I were so excited! Ben… was resigned.

I knew Suba and Dorian love japanese food, which is why I recommended this restaurant. Lilotang is a modern japanese fusion restaurant. The food is always so beautifully presented, and their staff are very… Continue reading Lilotang, Barton

Chicken Satay

Chicken satay is my go-to party food. Typically, I make it the night before the party so that it marinades overnight. Then the next morning, I thread it onto the skewers ready for the barbeque. I have really only made satays with chicken thigh fillets, however, I know you can make them with beef and… Continue reading Chicken Satay

Malaysian Chicken Curry Puffs a.k.a Karipap Pusing

I LOVE curry puffs! I always thought they were really hard to make, there is some skill involved, but with this recipe that I found on Facebook, it’s not too bad actually. My crimping could use some work, but it still tasted good! So let me just take a step back and explain what curry… Continue reading Malaysian Chicken Curry Puffs a.k.a Karipap Pusing
