Edit: This post was last updated on 3/1/2021.

These are favourites that I’ve found online that I either want to try or have already tried. I’m noting them all down so I don’t forget and can easily find them, and will add to this as I go along. Let me know if you’ve tried any!


  • Dip ‘n’ Share Eggs – I make this every couple of weeks or so. We love it!
  • Easy Skillet Breakfast Potatoes – this was genuinely so quick and easy to make. I threw in what I had in the pantry: butter, garlic clove, salt, pepper, rosemary, paprika. Jacky doesn’t give this score liberally but he rated it 10/10.
  • Fluffy Pancakes – these were genuinely easy to make and tasty, and for once I did not find it too sweet. However, when she says ‘fold’ the wet ingredients into the dry ones she actually means ‘gently whisk’ (per her video and what I found in my attempt), and when she says ‘medium-low’ heat, I found it worked better when the heat was closer to medium than to low.
  • Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Granola – to try.
  • Tamagoyaki – I made the sweet version but mine turned out a little burnt on the medium-high heat. I just used a regular pan so think I poured too much mixture in, meaning I had to wait longer for it to cook enough for me to start folding. It tasted good though! Just the right level of sweet / salty balance.

Recipe: The Best Chocolate Chip & Walnut Banana Bread

This recipe is actually fool-proof because I am not a baker. And yes, it is the best chocolate chip and walnut banana bread. (Because if your banana bread doesn’t have chocolate chips or walnuts in, what’s even the point amiright?)

I have tried various recipes to varying degrees of success (though Jacky was more than happy to eat all of them, and my neighbours graciously accepted to eat some too haha), but this one I’m writing down so I never forget.

And you, in case you are not a baker either, can benefit too. Ha!

For the first time ever it did not come out all dense and crusty; the bread was so moist and the colour was just perrrfect and the chocolate was all melty and, well, we didn’t take many photos before we dug in.
