Hi! Welcome to my blog. There are three things I really love: photography, travelling and food. It is rare that I would travel to a place and not take my camera. When I am there I would really enjoy the sights, color, smell and sample the food. I am u

THE LAUGHING HOUSEWIFE
Born in the capital of Ireland (Liverpool); grew up in Wallasey and Runcorn. Emigrated most reluctantly with my family to South Africa at age eighteen.
I have neither abandoned my kitchen nor this blog, just in hibernation mode for the time being. The pregnancy is getting the best out of me now that my belly is heavier and moving around the kitchen with big belly is not as spacious as it used to be. (",) Also, cooking my own food does not enthrall me at this moment, especially solid food. Most of the […]

It's Thursday, and it's Saint Patrick's Day but it is also one more day before market day. You can tell, I am running out of food in my kitchen. I just grab whatever there is left in the freezer and the pantry. I had full intentions of making Corn Beef and Cabbage for St. Patrick's Day but I didn't find any corn beef in the supermark […]

That's the only time you don't have to bribe me to eat yogurt.Few weeks ago, I was home bored to death, thanks to this thin […]
I promise not to make this potstickers again unless I have a ready to use wrapper. The meat filling is a whiz to make but boy I really did not enjoy making my own wrapper. I had to do everything manually, I even have a step by step picture on how I did it just to prove how tedious it was. But hubby liked it so much he said he will help me make the dough next […]
Nope, I have not been to Brazil and I have not had this dish before. So how can I tell if the taste is close to the authentic Brazilian dish? I guess I will have to wait until I either find a Brazilian restaurant or when I finally visit Brazil. But kid you not, this recipe I found from allrecipes.com will definitely earn you compliments if you ever decide to […]
Both hubby and I love traveling as much as we love food, this is why we work hard to save up for at least one international trip a year. We also both believe that the best way to experience different cultures is through food. Every time we travel to different countries we make sure to research the most popular food of our destination and then once we get the […]
After two days of doing nothing but sleep I finally decide to get out of bed and make something palatable. Seeing my hubby eating nothing but chips and salsa, cookies, and Boy Bawang somehow makes me feel really guilty especially when I saw him washing all the dirty dishes and cleaning the counter tops so I can relax all day, very nice! (“,) It was around 3: […]
I've been meaning to make this crab wraps for a while now but I keep running out of flour tortillas and I don't really have that much patience using rice paper wrapper because I seem to break/waste it every time I use one. So I decided to give the rice paper wrapper another shot and this time it didn't fail me. Perhaps it's because I […]
