My friend recently made bubble tea at home and it was delicious. She made and cooled some green tea then whirred it in a blender with some mango nectar and coconut milk. She then added fruity multicoloured tapioca balls she bought from the asian market.

It was the best bubble tea i've ever had!

Is it sad to say that my heart fluttered when I saw the dining room?? That table, that WALLPAPER, the painted barrister shelves...damn. Simply.

I love those fondue pots and have been searching for the ultimate danish fondue pot...anyone know where these ones are from??

Sad to say I didn't know that cold breakfasts were even an option til I grew up and left home. A result of living in a cold country no less..My mum always made steel cut oats OR porridge (cornmeal cooked in milk with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and brown sugar) Or a full english accented with fried plantains and/or fried breadfruit.

That sort of stuff stuck to your ribs and kept you warm for hours on end.

Chuck Hughes of Chucks Day off for sure. I love how enthused he is in the kitchen and the wicked beats they play when he cooks..as I always cook to music.

Secondly, the lads of Food Jammers - http://www.foodjammers.com/ because their ingenuity and slightly hare brained ideas actually work and if they don't they seem like fun trying.

When I was a kid I would dream about white rice over and over again, eating it and loving it. Probably because my mum hardly ever made regular white rice.

I also remember a nightmare of going to eat a bar of white chocolate only for it to be soap. That put me off white chocolate til I was an adult.

Sleeping Secret: I Dream of Croissants

I think I ate custard every day when I was a kid.

Lovely warm custard - made with milk, brown sugar and vanilla essence is the perfect topping to an apple crumble.

Also stewed rhubarb is lovely topped with custard (10 points to whoever remembers the song roobarb and custard named after the cartoon characters).

Finally yes yes yes in a trifle...you can always make it chocolate custard by adding some cocoa and thus make a choccie trifle...yum!

Cook’s Confession: What Have You Passed Off as Dinner?

I've never had a problem peeling a plantain though I have been doing it since a child. I do exactly as APF does. Sometimes I cut it in half (widthwise), then lop the top off, score a line down the middle, slip a finger under the slit and bobs your uncle.

Recipe: Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Banana Chunks

Just got back from Ireland and have become a hardcore Jameson addict. It's so smooth and rich.

I find Scotch waay to peat-y and Jack an olfactive delight but way to lightweight in the mouth..maybe it's the triple distillation that gives Jameson that rich taste..either way I love it. Straight up no rocks.

Jamaican Wray & Nephew all the way. I was raised on it. It goes into my tea, my trifles, and is yum sprinkled on ice cream. It's not for the faint hearted though..
