Spicy Pancetta BowTie Pasta

Nothing beats homecooked food, especially when you are broke and have leftovers you need to go through!
Decided to go for a simple bowtie pasta with pancetta and chives. Nothing fancy about this dish but damn, was it delicious.

Being a huge fan of spicy dishes, I wanted to dive into a different type of flavour for the pasta instead of the usual cream-based or tomato sauce. …Read More

Locals Only

I’ve been to many places but none of them left an impact on me like Locals Only did. Maybe it’s because they have this awesome current promo of half priced wine and buck a shuck oysters everyday from 5-8pm, or it’s the awesome service, kickass atmosphere and delicious tapa style food. Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right.  …Read More

Breakfast Waffles

Waffles are undoubtedly, one of the most photogenic breakfast items out there. The golden crisp and the textures, drizzled with syrup and fresh berries or chocolate chips…Mmm.

I bought a waffle iron a while back but felt like I didn’t use it enough so I decided to make a scrumptious breakfast. I’m not one for fresh berries but what the heck, I’ll do it for the photo #allforthelikes.

Helen’s Signature Lemon Chicken Dish

I love potlucks. I love having people over and cooking for them and seeing them enjoy my food. What did I learn from cooking the x number of potlucks I’ve either been to or hosted? I learnt that people friggin’ love my lemon chicken dish.
They love it so much that they scrap that dish clean and that, that makes me feel amazing. I think that’s why I love cooking, seeing the people I cook for enjoy it and talk about it.  …Read More
