Mrs P loves her some noodles. Unfortunately, I’m rarely happy with the way our noodles turn out when we make them at home. Happy as we are to acquire them from our favourite takeaway joints, I’ve always felt a little disappointed that I couldn’t provide the same noodle satisfaction at home. Enter Sam Han’s fantastic […]Read more "Char Kiwi Way Teow (By Way of The Bonding Tool)"
Our most recent endowments from the burger gods have felt less like blessings and more like wrath dressed up as moving in mysterious ways. When no-one else is doing it properly, it’s time to try doing it yourself. This recipe from Sofia over at Papaya Pieces has been calling out to me since day one.

Hello, faithful readers. Exams season has finally finished. Well, I was actually done on Tuesday, but it hasn’t been a simple matter of getting back in the saddle, or behind the keyboard. Going into the depths of tax law seriously drains the creative writing abilities. Simply finishing wasn’t enough, there needed to be time to […]Read more "TSL Roasted Pumpkin Soup – Sunshine on a Freezing Cloudy Day"
I’ve been having a particularly bad time in the sleeping department recently. Previously the problem was getting to sleep at night, now it’s sleeping through the night. While this feels like a rip off when it happens during the week, it’s a blessing in disguise in the weekend. On this occasion, it allowed me to […]Read more "Soup Saturday – Bonding Tool’s Congee"
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 been […]Read more "le pirate’s Apple Yogurt Tea Cake – Live and Direct"
“Warm cake makes everything better.” – le pirate I don’t know if that’s objectively true, but if you told me warm le pirate cake makes everything better, I’d absolutely believe you. Go here, for the full recipe and prettier photos. I could tell you about the texture; the gooey lemon-curd-of-my-dreams centre, the contrastingly light and fluffy […]Read more "Le Pirate’s Lemon White Chocolate Cake"
Le Pirate was one of the first blogs I stumbled across when I started up The Peckish Kiwi. As far as clicking the follow button, that was about as easy as it got, and she hadn’t even started on the recipes yet. When the recipes did start, it epitomised the treasure trove that blogs are for […]Read more "Le Pirate’s Zucchinea and Broccolea Green Moat (Or Garden Soup if You Prefer)"
The lovely Victoria at 100% Nutz got back to me about their peanut butter for the international readers out there. Getting into overseas markets is on the cards, and if any of you have local foodie outlets that you shop at, feel free to pass their details onto 100% Nutz. In the meantime if you like the […]Read more "100% Nutz Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies – A Little Oaty Piece of Reese"
So yesterday I teased a Nutella baking session in this blog, and here are the results. These are no bake, so they were perfect for a Sunday where I was still under the weather and wanted to cook without the whole process being too taxing. These were no fuss to put together, and I got so many cookies out of the […]Read more "Nutella Cookies – Poatent Fudge Flavour"
We’ve been a couple going on nine years, but it’s still possible to make rookie mistakes. In my defense up until now, I’ve never faced the new sheet of Panadol dilemma. Any normal person would, I suppose, start at the end and work their way in. Leave a fresh sheet of pills with me, however, and you’ll end up with […]Read more "Easy Peasy Appeasing Pea Pancakes"
