Seafood Chowder

Autumn is here. September in Ireland is still a mild temperate month so the heater is not yet timed but I can use a nice soup to keep me warm. In times like this, I couldn't bring myself to cook fancy meals. A 15-minute meal is what I need. Here's my all time favourite Seafood Chowder.

Favourite Summer Foods

Every single year, I'm waiting for summer like a child waiting for rain to stop in order to play outside. I have ny reasons to wait for the sun. As a wife and mom, my first reason is that I can properly dry my laundry (wink 😉). Second of all, summer is my chance to wear light clothes. I'm not an avid fan of layering. Third, sun means more time exploring nature. More fun in the sea and mountains.

The list can go on and on but one thing that excite me the most are the foods and the people to share them with. Imagine my joy when I see red sweet watermelon or husband setting up the barbeque grill. 

Here are few of my favorite foods during summer...

Halu-halo ( Filipino dessert)


Grilled Aubergine with Japanese Sauce

Ice Cream (lots of it)

Chicken Barbeque

Chocolate Fudge Served with Vanilla Ice Cream

How about you? Do you have any favorite summer foods?

Chocolate Fondant

I got to be honest here, I am a choco-lover. There is no day that I don't crave for something chocolatey. If I have all the time in the world, I will definitely turn my kitchen upside down to invent new chocolate dessert recipes. But I got to accept, my 20 month old child is keeping my hands all tied up.

When I try or do new recipe, I always make it in a small batch. Less waste and gives me more room to try it again. It is my first time to try this chocolate fondant recipe. I'm a bit hesitant to serve it to my husband. But I got a kiss so I guess I did it right.

Oliver St. John Gogarty Bar

I've been living in Dublin for more than seven years now. With that, I'm so grateful for the privilege given to me to see the other side of the world. Being apart from home means missing a lot of traditional foods and delicacies. But being in a totally new environment means a great chance to try new foods. 

One of the famous spot to visit in Dublin is the Temple Bar Street. There you can find fabulous bars and restaurants which offers not only good food but also fun and entertainment. Just like "The Oliver ST. John Gogarty Bar and Restaurant".

Lomi (Egg Noodle Soup)

Way back home, when it's rainy and cold, a bowl of hot sopas (chicken noodle soup), hot mami (beef noodle soup) or hot lomi (egg noodle soup) will be nice to keep us warm. In fact, even if the weather is fair and sunny, still these foods are so good to feed a hungry lady like me.

When my mom visited us here, I made sure that she will pass on to me her lomi  recipe. I'm glad she did. Now I'm sharing it to all who reads this and I hope you'll enjoy this.
