M1 & M2’s Ramen dinner

Packaged ramens aren’t healthy but it did keep a lot of students alive during the course of their studies (hubby included) so I think it’s only fair to show the kids how to make one without making it soggy. M1 & M2 chose their fave flavours and each spent time boiling the exact amount of…

Spiced port and creamy lentils on a plate

Colder weather calls for warm and filling food. The spiced meat can be made hotter or milder, up to you. The creamy lentils tempers the heat well. I love the creamy lentils and tortillas, it’s so yummy! I won’t hesitate making more creamy lentils, just so I can finish off the pack of tortillas 🙂…

Spicy Beef & Beans Mexican Broth

Here’s something new to make. A filling dish with a kick. It is good to try a new dish from time to time. Serving  the same dish regularly no matter how spaced out it is can be boring. So here’s one dish you’d never think we will try to make considering we don’t eat spicy food….
