One of my favourite bedside books is Deliciously Ella: Every Day. I flip through it often, drooling over the beautiful photos, and dreaming of which recipe I will make.
One of my favourite brekkies is steel-cut oats, cooked in water (not milk), then topped with all sorts of fruits & nuts.

Never thought I’d hear myself saying this as I really am not a morning person. I still can’t eat first thing when I wake up, but a couple of hours later, I really enjoy this first meal of the day.

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”
