Spanish Chicken Hotpot

1 comments
It's probably because I'm Asian, but hotpot to me means those winter meals where we boil a pot of flavoured soup and cook our own food in the pot in the middle of the table.

Well apparently this isn't the only meaning, since the label on the sauce base mentioned 'Spanish Chicken HotPot' but showed a picture much more like a stew than my definition of hotpot (I didn't choose it myself, it came in my Easter Show Showbag!). So when I mentioned to my family that I was cooking a Spanish chicken hotpot for lunch, all I got was plenty of confusion and unfortunately not much anticipation (infact, they were all expecting some kind of cooking failure).

Pumpkin Soup

4 comments

When I first started this blog, some 5 or so years ago, never would I have thought that I'd post a recipe for pumpkin soup. Nor would I have thought that this pumpkin soup would be one that I'd love so much that I'd make it weekly during Autumn (because one batch never really lasts a week!). 

You see, I've never really been much of a fan of pumpkin, with pumpkin soup being one of my least favourite soups- one I try to avoid whenever possible. So when the waiter at a restaurant I was visiting told me that the only soup they had that day was pumpkin soup, I almost ordered something else instead.

Quick Creamy Pesto Pasta

2 comments

You always find the good recipes at the weirdest of times, when you're least expecting it, and most recently for me, this was when I whipped up a quick pasta some 10 minutes before I rushed off to work.

I've made plenty of pastas before, and have gone through plenty of pasta recipes which I've closely followed and planned ahead but none have quite been quite as good as this one which I threw together in hopes of bringing something edible for my work lunch. Sometimes you can get more than you wish for!
