Tomato & Basil Bruschetta & an update

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on February 2, 2013

It’s been a hectic few weeks with some very exciting and slightly scary happenings in my life. Yuye and I have purchased a business! A liquor retail business to be specific. So for those of you who like to drink, be jealous. Be very jealous.


Chicken & avocado sandwich with snow pea sprouts & semi-dried tomatoes

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 26, 2012

The warmer weather has had me craving for healthier and cold foods such as salads and sandwiches. Having very rich comfort food at the moment makes me more lethargic and full even though they’re still very tasty. Although I like pork the best, I also love my chicken (I really like all meats…haha), however I [...]


Garlic & butter mushroom crostinis

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 4, 2012

I always tell my friends that I should have been born a man. Not that I’m into girl action (although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it) but more like I act like one all the time, sometimes probably even more so than Yuye. I know, this is sounding a bit weird. Let me explain. I’m [...]


Guacamole bruschetta with baked cherry tomatoes

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 23, 2012

It’s interesting how siblings who grow up in the same household can come to like and dislike completely different things.

Steak sandwich with fried egg, beetroot and spinach

One day maybe 2 years ago, I was in the kitchen making brunch. For those of you who know me better, breakfast or brunch usually involve some form of eggs. I usually opt for the poached or fried variety using free range or organic eggs. The yolk has to be runny as runny can be [...]


Roast chicken bagels with smashed avocado & poached eggs

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 29, 2012

I’ve been making a lot of bagels lately. With tuna, with chicken and smoked salmon. Directly after our wonderful lunch at Las Chicas in Balaclava the other day, we headed straight for Woolworths and bought a bag of bagels. They were a good change from the usual loaf bread that we always have and they [...]


Poached eggs, pancetta and spinach toast

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 18, 2012

I’ve been naughty lately. To be specific, I’ve been spending a lot. On what? Food photography related items of course. Most food bloggers and photographers/stylists will understand the dilemma of budget vs want. When it comes to colourful spoons, vintage pots or an extra lens, it’s always easier to buy first and think later. Well, [...]
