Roasted Vegetable Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

While fresh, crisp salads are undoubtedly tasty, there is something about roasted vegetables in a salad that gets me all the time. Oven-roasting the vegetables brings out the earthiness and beautiful sweetness in the vegetables. The slightly charred corners of the sweet juicy vegetables are a thing to savour. Roasting […]

Apple & Rocket Salad with Parmesan

This seemingly sophisticated salad is just a simple one in disguise. Combining beautiful flavours, the salad is a taster’s delight. Rocket leaves have a beautiful mustardy-peppery flavour that contrasts the fruity & mildly sour apples. Adding to the crunch in this salad is the walnuts. Shaved Parmesan brings all the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I had a major OMG moment recently when I had my very first bite of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It was unlike anything I have had before – Sweet, nutty and chocolaty. Me: Sold! If you are like my pre-Reese’s self, and have not tasted one of these yet, let […]

Pesto Stuffed Puff Pastry

I love a good snack that involves a flaky puff pastry. If it savoury, it is that much better for me. Having puff pastry in the freezer is super handy when you have to dish out some quick snack for those major cravings and when you have guests over. It […]

Easy Apple Tart

Here is my belated treat for Kitchening About’s second birthday! It has been in the works for quite a while. In fact, my sister and I planned that I should post this for the 1st birthday! But I guess, it is better late than never, right? ☺ This dish is […]

Crispy Oven-Roasted Asparagus

On my trip to Europe, I managed to squeeze a wee bit of time to watch some TV. Although many major channels there play shows in local languages (without subtitles of course!), it is not that hard to understand what they are showing. In one particular cookery show, the host […]
