There’s a part in the movie Little Nicky where Adam Sandler’s trying-to-be-a-good-little-evil-son-of-the-Prince-of-Darkness character tries to show his nefarious chops by changing the contents of a can of coke into Pepsi. Seems like a lame trick on the surface, unless you’re really serious about your cola. Perhaps someone at Joshua’s magic factory was watching this clip and decided that […]Read more "Joshua’s Lemon Curd Ice Cream"
I’m posting hot off the presses again. We’ve moved to an adjusted work schedule in the Peckish household, which has messed with the cooking schedule somewhat, resulting in the posting lull of these past couple of days. This is also why I find myself baking cookies/biscuits on a Thursday night instead of the weekend like I normally would. […]Read more "SEG Way Crispy Chewy Earl Grey White Chocolate Chunk Cookies"
Marlon Brando famously stuffed his cheeks with cotton balls to augment his voice and his look for his role as Vito Corleone in the Godfather. Here Joshua’s have stuffed a pelican bill’s worth of butterscotch fudge pieces and sauce into the ice cream, and the result is less Marlon Brando Italian than smooth Sean Connery Scottish. Think of that velvety accent, […]Read more "Joshua’s Butterscotch Fudge Ice Cream"
It’s just been made. The kitchen has filled with the smell of sweet nostalgia and Grandma Peckish’s house on a Sunday afternoon. I’d remade a chicken soup as well at Mrs P’s request, but the first thing to pass my lips today was a slice of this long awaited Apple Yogurt Tea Cake from le pirate. I’d been […]Read more "le pirate’s Apple Yogurt Tea Cake – Live and Direct"
We’re crazy about food at the Peckish household, and that includes our pets. When it comes to Fritos, our little Napoleon loves to get stuck in, literally. It’s possible to play that same trick on me using the last bit of ice cream at the bottom of a little tub, and hiding all the spoons. […]Read more "The Peckish Kitty Loves Fritos"
Blueberries just don’t get the same respect as other berries do around my way. When it comes to fresh, preserved, and jellied, the kudos falls to the likes of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and boysenberries. Given how good they are to you nutritionally, seems a little unfair that they’re the low men on the berry totem pole. So, when I saw […]Read more "Oob Organic Blueberry Ice Cream"
I went a little Nam Tok/Nahm Tok/Nahm Dtok mad last week. After a while it felt like the ladies at Target Thai were having a little chuckle at me when we’d turn up again for dinner and I’d ask for another one. As cheap and delicious as theirs is ($10), I thought this obsession couldn’t […]Read more "Nam Tok at Home"
We bid farewell to the restaurant where I proposed to Mrs P in the weekend just gone. I was looking forward to doing a post on it, but my camera decided to throw a fit and most of the photos from that night are useless. As is often consolation here and in general when things […]Read more "Your Cat Wishes Your Stationery Was This Comfy"
I’ve wanted to write about this chocolate for a long time. In fact, it’s a bit like the wait I had when Whittaker’s first announced this chocolate. I checked the supermarkets to no avail for several weeks while searching for the anticipated comeback chocolate flavour. Similarly, after I tried the chocolate and thought to write […]Read more "Whittaker’s Cornflake Chocolate – Cookie Recipe as Simile"
