Within a hidden alley way in Sydney’s CBD, there is a nice Spanish Tapas Bar and Restaurant. My friend had booked a table at this restaurant for her birthday. I was informed beforehand that if we were to cancel it would be a $50 fee, per person. But I am always up for a drink and good food to celebrate my friend’s birth.

Following the directions of the map, I was able to find the restaurant. The restaurant was 2 stories high, the bottom was a bar, loud, full and flowing with conversation. Upstairs was the dining area, complete different scenario to the bottom level.

Basic Chicken Soup Recipe in a BillyBoil Thermal Cooker

Basic Chicken Soup Recipe in a BillyBoil Thermal Cooker

                                ~ Click here to download PDF Version for printing! ~

We were approached by the BillyBoil Company to test their product of a thermal Cooker. This was my first time cooking with a Thermal cooker, so I did a bit of research.  I watched old 90’s videos on YouTube on how to use a thermal cooker and I looked up a few recipes.
If you are like me and never used a thermal cooker before, it is a stainless steel product. There is the case and the inner pot. The inner pot is what you use to cook everything in over your stove, just like a saucepan. Once done you just pop the inner pot into the case and close the lid. Leave for hours and it will cook in its own heat.

All the websites for thermal cookers state that you save electricity when using these and if you go on vacation, you can take it with you and it will still cook and keep your food warm. I looked up a few recipes online and decided to create my own version using the thermal cooker.

In my honest opinion, I would have never have known to purchase one of these, however having now used one, I would definitely suggest to my friends and family to purchase one. To read up more on this thermal cooker, just check out the website , they have recipes and a more in-depth description on their website.

A big warm thanks to Ryan McCarthy and Reduction Revolution for letting me try cooking in the BillyBoil Thermal cooker.

Now moving onto the first time using a thermal cooker.

Until Next Time,
Jess =^.^=

Recipe: Pandan Checkered Cookies | The Sweet Swap

Recipe: Pandan Checkered Cookies

I love pandan anything, the smell of pandan leaves, pandan chiffon cake, Mamak's pandan kaya roti, Chat Thai's pandan custard dessert, the list goes on.

This year when I found out about The Sweet Swap, I immediately signed up because who doesn't like to receive surprise parcels! A little background about The Sweet Swap - it is formed by Amanda and Sara where participants mail desserts to 3 allocated matches. What's more, our registration fee goes towards Child Fund Australia, so we get surprise desserts AND help a charity, win-win!

Since I want to make something with pandan and it needs to be non perishable, I came up with the idea of pandan cookies! Thanks to google, I found a checkered cookie recipe from Cornercafe and also decided to make pandan paste from scratch with recipe found at Liza Messycorner.

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 11.30am - midnight and Saturday & public holidays 12pm - 11pm

Must Try: Original Fried Chicken

The Sparrow's Mill is a relatively new KFC eatery in the city which is conveniently located opposite world square on Goulburn St. To avoid a long queue, be sure to get here relatively early (around 6pm).

Spring Onion Gang Jung $18 Half

There's so many different kind of chicken to choose from, the first thing I saw on the menu were the words "Incredible Chicken Gangjung" so I excitedly ordered it. Gangjung is a traditional korean cookies made out of puffed rice, honey, peanut and sesame seeds.

Unfortunately the sauce was a bit too sweet for me and the chicken is covered with the sauce so it's not as crunchy as the original fried chicken. I was kicking myself for not trying the original one!!

Jap Chae Stir Fried Glass Noodles and Vegetables $12.80 with Beef extra $3.80

These noodles were very tasty and it comes with a lot of veges!

Last Saturday night in the hustle and bustle of Newtown, Felicia and I came to dine at Onyx Restaurant & Cocktail Bar. As the name suggests, we were going to have a rocking time (no pun intended). We were ready to try some cocktails! 

We got the chance to meet Gerry the owner and he told us to relax and enjoy the food. Gerry informed us this is his 4th restaurant, his previous one being Agave in Surry Hills. I asked him where the restaurant name came from and he mentioned in his home town, they have mines dedicated to onyx. He even showed us the onyx lamps near the bar, it is quite beautiful and exquisite.
