Coconut Tapioca Pudding with Palm Syrup & Lemon Jellies

Coconut Tapioca Pudding with Palm Syrup & Lemon Jellies

What feels like a million years ago, the Ninja and I lived in a tiny high rise apartment in downtown Hanoi, Vietnam.  We were doing the teacher thing, or at least, he was discovering his talent for it while I mostly ran around with my camera trying to eat as much as possible.  I’m a predictable […]

True Expatriate Love (deserves Banana Pudding)

True Expatriate Love (deserves Banana Pudding)

There are benefits.  More than I’m probably aware of.  I can walk the streets gathering concrete paste, smashed fruit and red dust all over my shoes, and still have someone to twine my (showered) legs with in the night.  I can live for 3 weeks straight in a new country without working while I finish […]

Summerfruits Destiny: Tropical Upside Down Gingerbread, Mango Crisp and Raw Lime Avocado Pie

If I can make something tropical I will do it.  If I can cook something great without picking up a thing outside what I have in the kitchen already, I will verily  do it.  And, when the kitchen contains fruit, I am a happy sun-cheeked girl, and making sweets that are all colours of the […]

Cape Breton trip Pt 2: Butterscotch pudding, Hootenany-ing, and the most beautiful beach in the world.

There are enormous windows around me letting the virulent green of pine trees into my morning, rain drip-dripping on grey earth, like the waters rising up from the very Atlantic to say hello to this out-of-town newcomer.  We’re staying in the Ninja’s mother’s bedroom right now, though I think at first opportunity I’d like to […]

Coconut Chai Rice Pudding with Crunchy Lemon Coconut, cooking in the woods edition

Every year I make a pilgrimage to the same place.  It changes, like a nebula, gaining limbs (friends) and losing others (uh, also referring to friends here), but the change is slow, organic, natural and altogether comfortable.  In the woods, time passes in it’s own microcosm, and the city just… doesn’t matter.  Ceases to factor […]

Raw Rosewater Cheesecake and a Vegan Zine Giveaway!

A long time ago, I used to be the kind of person that would make zines on a Thursday night (instead of drink Negronis and watch Adventure Time and look for ways to make cheap cuts of meat resplendent, herbal, and delectable… ah aging).  I made zines about myself, mostly, with all the semi-decent poetry, […]

Raspberry, Rose & Lychee Religieuses for St. Valentine’s

A gift of rose petals necessitates a gesture.  Not just anything will do.  I’ve made mere rose jelly ~ (crystalline blushing winesap pink), rose cupcakes ~ (vegan, pistachi-O’d and almondy), rose vodka ~ (hello!)…… but I needed to speak in a full sentence this time, and the 14th of February loomed pain-free and celebratory on […]
