Cookbook Journey 10 – I’m back!

After a very long intermission from my Cookbook Journey, I’m hopefully back for good! I’m very disappointed that I let so many things get in the way of my plan and the momentum that I gained towards the end of last year. Without getting into too much detail on why I’ve been MIA… I moved…

Cookbook Journey 8: You can be 80 percent all of the time

Hi all! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since my last post! So much happening between renovations, moving out of my parents’ house (after 28 years), the online shop and the Cookbook Journey. It’s a time of big change in my life. And change, whether good or bad, makes you ask yourself questions: “Will…

Cookbook Journey 7: To do or to be

Lately I get up in the mornings torn between the desire to “do” and the desire to just “be”. Now I’m sure many of you share this feeling of waking up on a mission to get the thing done, stick to your plan, change your world. I often find myself already thinking of the next…

Cookbook Journey 6: Delicious Strawberries

I’m so grateful and motivated by the support that I’ve received since announcing that I’m doing this cookbook. And even more excited that so many of you want to be part of my journey, especially following my invitation for recipe testers this week. The journey is only beginning… and I can’t wait to see what…

Cookbook Journey 5: Recipe Tester Anyone?  

There’s no doubt that recipes have never been easier to find. Although I still love to dig through cookbooks, magazines and stacks of lose papers with hand written family recipes, most of the time we can just type a few ingredients in Google and there’s hundreds of choices at our fingertips. The number of available…

Cookbook Journey 4: Time for a cleanse

Happy Monday! Now I know I’ve just come back from a 7 day holiday – an absolutely amazing and restful week with lots of peace and quiet. It was definitely a needed cleanse for my mind… … but when I rest, I eat! A lot! Mornings were spent having fresh croissants and baguettes with cheese…

Cookbook Journey 3: Behind the scenes

Happy Friday! And an extra happy Friday to me! Tomorrow I will be in sunny Mauritius, with cocktail in hand, beach sand at feet and a big smile on my face! It’s my second trip to Mauritius in less than a year and I can definitely see myself getting used to this! So week one…

Cookbook Journey 2: Spaghetti Vongole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet. It is probably the quickest pasta recipe I can think of, well aside from adding parmigiano cheese, chilli and lemon zest to ready-made pasta (also delicious by the way!). Basically the vongole sauce, takes the same amount of time to cook as the spaghetti. What you’re looking for…

Cookbook Journey 1: About the book

This past week has been crazy! Without going into too much detail, it involved my car overheating on the highway, a 3hr trip to the hospital, numerous tests with doctors, a birthday, a farewell and my parents anniversary! What a week! Our mid-year trip to Mauritius could not have come at a better time. Looking…

Big News

As you all know, I have an obsession with food! It’s so much more than just a passion… It’s a belief that everything in life is better if it includes great food. My blog has allowed me to share my recipes, food thoughts and some restaurant recommendations. But my dream, when it comes to food,…
