We went out in search of dinner this past Wednesday night: Older Daughter had a bit of a traumatic afternoon on account of too much studying, so we said she could pick our dinner venue. After a pleasant wander about Orchard Road, checking out half a dozen potential eateries, we finally sat down at Dazzling Cafe. Continue reading “A Dazzling Food Adventure”
On Sunday, 10 July 2016, we gathered at Angsana Green, East Coast Park to celebrate running & those with special needs with Running Hour 2016. Continue reading “Running Hour: Run So Others Can”
In considering what about my life I would save for posterity, I realised that while I love period movies, old architecture & baroque music, I have largely embraced technology & all the conveniences they afford. Even the last stronghold, print books, have been replaced by my iPad mini.
There is still one thing which I strongly believe is better done the old fashioned way: writing. Loving Husband & I write letters to each other regularly. There is something special about penning a letter instead of sending an email or SMS (which we do plenty of as well for more mundane communication). Continue reading “Writing … with fountain pens”
I have a soft spot for peanut butter & anything made with it.
Continuing my quest for better than regular vegan goodies, I tried this recipe from my favourite almost vegan blog, MyCaliforniaRoots. Continue reading “Best (Vegan) Peanut Butter Cookies Ever!”
Summer 1983 was a season of firsts: it was the first time I visited the United States of America; the first time I had sour dough bread; the first time I visited the Magic Kingdom.
I love banana bread and I love blueberry muffins, but I have never had it in one baked goodie before.
There was a blueberry special in the supermarket and I fancied something blueberry & baked, so I search my favourite almost vegan blog, MyCaliforniaRoots and found this recipe. Continue reading “Vegan banana & blueberry muffins”
This photo was taken in December 2014 by one of the Daughters, while we were walking towards Oxford Street, London.
Believe it or not, Loving Husband & I did not coordinate our coats & backpacks – it just worked out that way.
This is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners.
My Fellow Food-Intolerance Sufferer requested some raisin oatmeal cookies: she tried the Chocolate Chip & Pomegranate Oatmeal cookies I made some weeks back and loved them!
As my friend is gluten-intolerant, I used Orgran Gluten-Free All Purpose flour in place of the flour recommendation in the recipe from my favourite Almost-Vegan Food Site, MyCaliforniaRoots.com. This time I omitted the pomegranate & used raisins instead.
Another batch of delicious and more-ish cookies! Very dangerous to keep around (I can’t stop eating them!!!!) Try them if you dare!
