Kale and Chickpea Soup with Lemon – a Tribute to Selma

“Will I tell you the story of Johnny McGorry? “Yes” “Shall I begin it?” “Yes” “That’s all that’s in it.”  ~ My Dad For years, if we asked my dad for a story, he’d usually start out as above. Thankfully, he would end up telling us a story but never one about Johnny McGorry. Luckily for you, the story I am about to share is a bit longer than the tale of Johnny McGorry but has a sad middle and a cute ending. Shall I begin it? Once upon a time, there was a little boy, known to all as The Jam. One day, just this week, as he was going to his violin lesson, his Mammy gave him a beautiful red apple. Would you believe this apple was so delicious that it tasted even better than chocolate?  As they walked down the street, The Jam munching on his apple, the unthinkable happened: the apple slid out of his hands and fell with a thud to the ground. The Jam was devastated. All he wanted was to pick …

Easy Dressed Up Coriander/Cilantro Rice

Happy Christmas and all the blessing of the season for 2016.

First off, apologies for the delay in posting anything. To be honest, I’m still adjusting to life in Ireland and it’s hard to get used to managing my time properly. It’s very easy to watch a lot of Netflix and to spend hours upon hours reading. Thankfully, with Christmas here things are a little more busy and cooking-centric. However, any tips on time management and creating a proper blogging schedule would be HIGHLY appreciated. I feel as if I am wasting my year off instead of making the most of it.

French Toast Roll-ups: Nutella, Cream Cheese and Fruity Goodness

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but Nutella and shoes seem to run a close second. ~ David Alejandro Fearnhead I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here! It was always one of my favourite holidays growing up as we always got the Thursday and Friday off school. This wasn’t/isn’t a typical occurrence in Dublin, but thanks to having an American Mam made a lovely difference to our  winter term.  I remember how jealous my fellow-students would be when we would swan out on Wednesday evening for a nice long weekend. It was even better when my sisters and I were in boarding school (not as interesting as it sounds!) as we usually only came home every other Friday night, arriving very late and leaving fairly early on a Sunday, as in those days there weren’t many trains on a Sunday and we had at least a 4 hour journey ahead of us. So, when we got to come home on a Wednesday night (and I think one year at least on a Tuesday night), it made …

Savory Crepes with Stir fried Vegetables [Re-post from Sejong Dish]

Note: Hi everyone, I want to apologise first off as you’ve probably noticed I haven’t posted much this last month. New recipes will be a little scattered over the next few months as well as I am finishing up in Korea and moving home. Further, I will be travelling the month of September but more on that later.  Consequently, other things have taken a slight priority over cooking: eating at all my favourite restaurants, weekend trips, goodbye parties, editing all my packing etc. I hope to post at least twice a month with a new recipe and the next one will be up soon.  Regardless of whether I get to post a new recipe twice a month I will still participate in the In My Kitchen Series by Celia @ Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and the Tell ’em Tuesday Link Up by Kim @ peeled.  “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ~LM Montgomery Before I ever even really fully conceived the idea of “Spoon in a Saucepan” one …

Tomato, Orange and Lentil Soup

Soup is the song of the hearth…and the home. -Louis P. De Gouy Christmas is here! I am so excited! After all, December is one of my favourite months—Christmas and my birthday rolled into one glorious wintry month! So, in honour of both those great events I have dedicated this month to Christmas inspired food. First up, things have been insane lately: before Thanksgiving even hit Korea, I had been sick almost a week. Now, it’s over two weeks later and this cold is hanging on with its icy toes. It doesn’t help that the weather has completely changed over the last week or so. Before Thanksgiving, the weather was a bit cold, but mostly decent and you could do things like go for an 8k walk. Since the 1st December, though, snow has hit on average 5 days out of 7. It’s much colder and this hasn’t helped me to recover at all—despite mostly staying inside, wrapped in a blanket, with the ondol (floor heating) and space heater on full blast. To top it all off, …
