Baked Vanilla Mochi Cake aka Crack Cake *updated recipe*





This Vanilla Mochi Cake is called "Crack Cake" in our household. Crispy flaky edges. Gooey chewy center. Heavenly vanilla. It is seriously addictive. And super easy to make. A very dangerous combination.

Seriously Addictive Chinese Chilli Oil





Floral fragrant Sichuan peppercorns, dried chill flakes, garlic and fermented black beans slowly toasted in oil. This chilli oil might not be much to look at but it packs a massive punch of flavour and nostalgia. You will find chilli oil like this in pretty much any side street noodle shop or dumpling joint in Hong Kong. There are a million different versions, each region will have some different take on it, every restaurant will have their own special twist on this classic condiment.

Cheesy Creamy Shin Ramyun Korean Spicy Noodles





I saw a post pop up on my Facebook feed talking about ramen with milk and cheese and it was just one of those trainwreck dishes that sounds terrible but you can’t stop thinking about.  So bad it must be amazing right?? Ramen + spicy Korean chilli kick + creamy cheesy sauce. Like an asian style spicy mac and cheese amiright? And in the aftermath of the horribleness our little old NZ had been through over the weekend, I am all about comfort eating.
