Andrew James Ice-cream Maker - Strawberry & Vimto Andrew James Ice-cream Maker - Strawberry & Vimto By This is Life 06/11/14 13:30 I've always wanted to make my own ice-cream. Although there are more and more flavours available in shops, black sesame seeds, green tea, red beans (or azuki beans in Japanese) and lychee sorbet (maybe I'll try Durian one day too...) are still too exotic...
Easter Roast - New Zealand Lamb Easter Roast - New Zealand Lamb By This is Life 04/16/14 10:00 Wholegrain Mustard and White Wine not used in the recipeAre you planning to do a roast for this Easter Sunday? I normally wouldn't think of roasting a leg of lamb (we've only ever grilled some lamb chops) but I've changed my mind now! We always knew that...
Douwe Egberts The Flavour Collective Coffee Douwe Egberts The Flavour Collective Coffee By This is Life 02/05/13 01:51 Warning: long post due to 3 recipes included at the end I remember since young, while we were still living in Holland, my parents have been drinking filtered coffee from Douwe Egberts. Of course I didn't know it was Douwe Egberts then, but that classic...

Black Glutinous Rice Dessert Black Glutinous Rice Dessert By This is Life 06/13/12 11:00 Originally a Thai dessert (I think), I made sure that the black glutinous rice is only just cooked (when they started to split), instead of cooking them until soft. The texture of the rice is crispy outside and soft (but not soggy) inside, making the dessert...

Baked Raspberry Cream Cheesecake Baked Raspberry Cream Cheesecake By This is Life 05/04/12 13:02 My favourite cheesecake is Japanese Style cheesecake . It is light and feathery, smooth but with a slight crumbly texture. And if you are not careful, you'll find yourself eating the whole cake in one sitting. But there is a lot of work involved and every...

Raspberry Tiramisu Raspberry Tiramisu By This is Life 04/27/12 13:30 I bought a pack of Mascarpone Cheese and a packet of lady fingers about 2 weeks ago, but have been too busy to make something out of them. I thought of making a Tiramisu, but I wanted to do something different. I spent ages wondering what else I can make,...

The idea is that they sell the prepared...
Mocha Cake Mocha Cake By This is Life 04/07/12 12:30 This is the same cake I used for my Banana and Avocado Mousse Cake cake base. It was that yummy. But this time I've gotten impatient. I didn't cream the butter and sugar properly, so the mixture curdled. Which shouldn't be a big problem, but then I took...
Paper-Mache Easter Eggs Paper-Mache Easter Eggs By This is Life 04/05/12 12:30 I have a problem. Every time I see some gorgeous craft made by really crafty and talented bloggers, I feel the need to make the same thing. However, since I'm not the talented crafty type of person, I always ended up making them ten times uglier. But I...
Painted Easter Eggs Painted Easter Eggs By This is Life 04/04/12 12:30 Abby's school is holding a painted Easter egg competition for the pre-schoolers this week. Although I'm not really a very tidy person, I avoid children mess as much as possible. And the thought of painting at home easily adds another few strands of grey...
One Pot Meal with the Rice Cooker One Pot Meal with the Rice Cooker By This is Life 04/03/12 12:30 I don't know how supermarkets can do it, but two whole roast chickens for £5.00 is extremely cheap! Obviously we can't finish two whole chicken between the four of us, so we normally keep the second one in the fridge, and the next day I'd make a delicious...

Lettuce Wrap Lettuce Wrap By This is Life 03/31/12 12:30 It has been a really warm Summery week and I'm sure most of my posts have revealed how we felt. A big shame that it has started to cool down now, fingers crossed it will be warm again during Easter! I made this for dinner last night because we still felt...
