Dairy Farmers Thick & Creamy yoghurt relaunch event

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 15, 2013

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang. Finally we’re getting a bit of well deserved sunshine! This beautiful weather makes me feel like I should be eating healthier and getting up earlier in the mornings. Something I haven’t done for quite some time. It came at a great time too as Dairy Farmers Thick & Creamy [...]

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.

Chocolate and blueberry mousse

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 18, 2012

I have this tendency to buy a lot of ingredients on a whim without much thought as to what I will use it for and whether I’d even have time. This is a very bad habit as I constantly see perfectly good produce looking sad and not fresh then having to make things in a [...]

Vanilla panna cotta with mixed berry compote

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 21, 2012

I have a confession to make. I love shopping at Costco. My heart starts to pound when I see 1.5kgs of butter and my palms get itchy walking by the 1kg peanut butter jars and 2kg cream cheese blocks. I could often be seen at the front of the line when a new batch of [...]

Classic choc chip cookies

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 15, 2012

I’ve been craving for sugary things a lot more lately. I never used to. Savoury was always my option although desserts were welcomed as a post-dinner cleanser or accompaniment to tea and coffee. There were however, more of an eye candy for me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been mentally and physically drained lately (can you [...]

Beef & enoki mushroom rolls

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 21, 2012

Japanese is probably my favourite type of cuisine, although I eat and like pretty much everything since I’m such a glutton. There’s just so many dishes that I crave for all the time like the tonkatsu I mentioned in yesterday’s post, and the various sushi posts I’ve had in the past, even udons, sukiyaki, yakitori…the [...]

Corn tortilla nachos recipe, using left over tortillas

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 8, 2012

I mentioned in my grilled chicken tacos recipe post that if you had any left over tortillas, you can just make tortilla chips with them and that is exactly what I did with mine. In a packet of 8 medium sized tortillas, I only used 5 – I made 4 into the chicken tacos mentioned [...]

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. There are obviously similarities but the reason for the differences baffles me sometimes. Tomatoes are my favourite food, I eat them raw, I eat them on toast, I eat them in salads, I eat them [...]

Mini pancake bites with 4 different toppings – perfect party food

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 11, 2012

“Do you want these mini pancakes? No one’s going to eat them” mum said to me one day. I’ve been staying at my boyfriend’s house lately and mum felt compelled to give me food whenever I was over for dinner. She probably thinks we’re unable to fend for ourselves without some form of help and [...]
