The first time I had leek and potato soup was in France many years back. Ever since, I’ve taken a liking to leek soup but have never quite found a place that sells a really good one. They are either too creamy or cheesy for my liking. So I’ve decided to scour the internet for recipes to make my very own.
One of the reason for keeping this blog besides documenting my life as a mother and the sewing highs and lows is to also document and share recipes for my new found passion in cooking. I see it as a natural progression for me as I became a wife and a mother (maybe secretly my yardstick was my own mother!). So it came as a really nice surprise when my brother texted me over the weekend to say he was proud that I can cook now. Haha, yes my cooking had been non-existence, though I’m a pro when it comes to instant noodles.
If I have to choose one comfort food out of the entire universe, I’ll pick Asian Soups. I grew up drinking them and love love love Asian soups, anytime, anyday.
Have anyone read “French Kids Eat Everything” by Karen Le Billon yet? The whole reason for picking this book and adding it to my reading list was not because Junior was not eating well but rather I was curious as to how kids can eat EVERYTHING. Karen should be very proud of this title as that was exactly what made me pick the book up.
The best investment I’ve ever made in the kitchen is my Oven! I almost canned the idea of getting an oven when my contractor told us that we could not have a built in oven if we didn’t move the gas pipe at the back. Thankfully, the mister insisted that I should still get the moveable convection oven.
Ever since Junior started teething (he has 8 little teeth now by the way), he seems to have lost just slightly some interest in food especially meat. He once love pork and beef but now seem to shun it just slightly. I was abit worried at most but I reckon he is feeding well on softer solid food and otherwise he looks pretty happy and I concluded things should be a-ok so far.
Can I tell you how much I love French toast? Yes I really do even as a kid and I’ve always thought my mum makes awesome French toast. I’m always looked forward to having it in my lunchbox. And obviously I know I’ve found my perfect match in the mister when he do love French toast as much as I do!
One of my favourite kind of breakfast involves savoury pancakes, preferably with a side of bacon and a pot of English Breakfast tea.
