Pecan & Bacon encrusted Doughnuts

1504547_10152795904396142_762193039812341920_n

Just last week I made my first attempt ever at making doughnuts, and I have to say I bloody nailed it. They were soft as clouds inside, and were almost good enough to rival those pillowy pieces of heavenly goodness at Krispie Kreme. I glazed these goodies with pieces of crispy bacon and pecan nuts. It was a match made in heaven and they were quite the delight. I’m already thinking of wild and wonderful ways to put these two together again, and thinking of new flavours. The doughnuts aren’t really too taxing in terms of skill, just a little on the time, but come on, it’s cold outside, it’s not like you have anything better to do whilst your sat at home watching the telly.

Linus’ Bama Style BBQ

10471271_10152799456651142_2270777025089378229_n

Linus has been the talk of the town for months now, ever since he finally quit pop ups and opened up a restaurant full time he’s all anyone can talk about. His southern style barbecue is the taste of home that people have been craving for years.  Earlier this summer he started out with a flaccid opening to perfect his craft and begged for no reviews until after the grand opening. I kindly obliged his request which is why I have waited until now to post my review, that coupled with busyness and laziness. I was also waiting for him to perfect the cocktail list, you know I can’t eat without some booze in my belly, it’s bad for my digestion! Continue reading

Bang Bang Chicken Salad

I realize that it’s terribly cold right now, and a salad recipe isn’t exactly what everyone is craving, but I whipped this up for dinner last week and it was so good I had to share it. I haven’t had Bang Bang Chicken in donkey’s years. But it’s my little brother’s favourite Chinese dish in the whole wide world. Every time we go for Chinese back home he insists on ordering it. I had all but forgotten about this dish, but when I was trying to figure out what to do with my chicken breasts the other night it came screaming back to me. I luckily had all the ingredients in my cupboard so I was able to whip it up in just a flash. Continue reading

XII – Twelve

Last Friday night I ventured to HBC’s latest and greatest acquisition XII. That’s twelve in roman numerals for those that skipped that class in school. Armed with a motley assortment of my closest friends we hit the bar hard.

Happy Peppero Day! I hope you are all enjoying the fun of the festive season and are laden down with more pepperos than you could ever eat. This year there are more flavours than ever for you to feast upon, so fingers crossed I get gifted some of the new tiramisu ones today!

The delicious treat I bring you today is the fabulous and fantastic funnel cake. Until a few days ago I was a funnel cake virgin. Never in my life has this oddly shaped doughnut batter touched my lips. Why oh why has this glorious treat never made it to Britain’s sweet shores? I feel for sure it could be just as popular as it is in the states. Anyhow, the funnelicious people at Sweet East have finally brought this obesity inducing dessert to Korea, hurray!

Courgette Cakes with Chunky Salsa

10404081_10152791226086142_1750324125941355166_n

Being a food blogger isn’t always easy. I’m under constant pressure to come up with new and exiting recipes all the time, which is probably why I have been eating out so much recently. We always have a fridge full of ingredients, it’s just a matter of compiling them in different ways to make new foods so things don’t get too repetitive. Courgettes are back in season now and dirt cheap. Usually  they just get relegated to extra status and thrown in at the last minute, but in this recipe they are the star of the show.  They are very easy to make as well as being tasty and filling, so just perfect for a weekday dinner. You could also substitute them in place of a burger for your vegetarian friends. I served mine with some chunky salsa. Chunky salsa is a lazy girl’s dream, as it requires far less chopping but retains all of the deliciousness.  Continue reading
