Ramen is a family favourite; meals out often finds us in a ramen shop. Happily, ramen has become extremely popular in Singapore and we are in no shortage of places to visit & revisit. Continue reading “Fire in the Belly”
I fell in love with Biscuits (not cookies, not scones) during my six years in Texas – with gravy, of course. I still remember Tanglewood Farms in Waco, off the I-35 with much fondness for their epic breakfasts plates, which often included, Biscuits & Gravy. Poking around Google, I see they shut their doors more than 2 decades ago.

Maybe I will use some to make sandwiches for Loving Husband’s Lunch Bag tomorrow. Continue reading “Buckwheat-Spelt Loaf”
Is this a banana cake or banana bread? I’ve done some reading and I don’t think there really is a clear divide or definition. Whatever it is, this is a wonderful recipe, taken from Anita Bean’s The Runner’s Cookbook, which is healthier (on account of the wholemeal flour, lower amount of brown sugar and vegetable oil) moist, tasty, and it keeps for a long long long time. I freeze mine and take it out over a few weeks to refuel after my runs, or to enjoy with my cup of tea. Continue reading “Banana Walnut & Date Cake”
