Classic Runny Scrambled Eggs

This year was bad, but as human beings, we always try to squeeze some goods out of the bads. I am very fortunate to be able to have a family who loves me, and friends who still remember me (and whom I still care about) – friends I made back in secondary school, college and university. Given that I am a very nonchalant person who prefers to stay at home and carry out my usual home-making and video-watching tasks, I am very lucky that I have a bunch of friends who understand my needs and once in a while pull me out of my comfort zone to meet with them for food, chats and adventures.

Medieval Lombard Chicken Pasties

I miss London a lot. I can’t believe lucky I was to be able to make that trip earlier this year and be back before the whole Covid craziness began. I still remember how the entire Europe was still drowned in concerns regarding UK withdrawing from the European Union and how little everyone knew about the Coronavirus back then even when I asked them about it. Now, it is a different story altogether. A year has almost passed by and I hope that everyone I met back then at the V&A and the BM are all staying well and safe, wherever they are.

Home-Baked Hawaiian Pizza

It was the first time I’m baking pizza and it was not as difficult as I’ve thought it would be. Once you are done with the dough, you could think about what toppings you would like to have with it. I don’t personally like to eat pizza, but thought that the Hawaiian flavour would be the safe option to go with my first attempt since it is one of the favourites of my boy as well.

Jansson’s Temptation

This dish has a very interesting name – Jansson’s temptation. It was apparently named after somebody famous but I’m really not sure who these people are (possibly Swedish in origin) so I’m not going to say too much about this. In essence, it is a potato dish baked simply in a cream sauce, similar to a potato gratin but done in a julienned (not sliced potatoes) manner.
