Egg-citing Eggs-periences: The Joy of Easter

I don’t make resolutions; simply because I have such a terrible time keeping them.  And the guilt, oh, the guilt!  A long time ago, I decided that it is too traumatic, psychologically & emotionally, to deliver ultimatums to myself.   Continue reading “Egg-citing Eggs-periences: The Joy of Easter”

Running in Bangkok

This is the picture I have in mind when I think of Bangkok traffic: a dense conglomeration of vehicles!  The pedestrian walkways are not much better during rush hour: people thronging on the uneven pavement, stopping occasionally amidst the push & pull of the crowd to buy food or knick-knacks from carts which line the busier streets.

Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Onsen Eggs

I love onsen eggs and when I saw this recipe in Savour (Cold Storage‘s free Food Magazine), I just had to try it.   Younger Daughter thinks of them as Japanese poached eggs, and I guess that’s pretty close.  I think the egg white is silkier and softer in the Japanese version though.

This egg was refrigerated overnight, warmed slightly by the steamed zucchini.  Still very good.

Beautiful & Thoughtful: the gift and the giver

This lovely purple furoshiki is a gift from Older Daughter.  She returned from a 2-week tour of Japan with her grandparents last night, and this is the beautiful & thoughtful gift she brought me; purple is my favourite colour, of course, and the double-sided pattern is very artistic!  The furoshiki is used by the Japanese to wrap all sorts of things;  Older Daughter says it is for me to use as a backdrop for my food pics.

A mother’s heart warmed.

Egg-citing Eggs-periences: Lemon Curd (super easy! super yummy)

This is definitely an Eggs-perience to repeat!  I love lemon curd, but it is not easy to get it in Singapore, so we’ve just been doing without.  But Younger Daughter wanted to use it in one of her cupcakes, so I found this wonderful recipe from The Food Charlatan.
