happy cinco de mayo!! :)

This recipe is inspired by chef Gordon Ramsay.  Lately, I've been hooked on watching his home cooking episodes.  Some of his recipes are very easy and hands-on.  Since today is Cinco de Mayo, I figure I should make something to celebrate this special day.  

Servings: 4 persons

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes


1/2 green capsicum, diced

1/2 red capsicum, diced

1 chili, deseeded, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 can black bean, drained

1 can chopped tomato

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp cumin powder

4 eggs

50g grated cheddar cheese

3-4 tortilla wraps, halved

2 tbsp pepper sauce

extra-virgin olive oil


1) Preheat a frying pan with olive oil on medium heat, add onion, garlic, chili, and capsicum.  Cook for 5 minutes.

2) Add the chopped tomato and cook for 3 minutes, then add the black beans; Place a lid on and simmer for 5 minutes on medium low heat.  Add brown sugar, cumin and season.  

3) Preheat the oven at 180ÂșC.  

4) Season a baking dish and drizzle a little olive oil.  

5) Place the halved tortilla wraps around the baking dish.  

6) Transfer the bean mixture to the baking dish.  

7) Make four hollow holes on the bean mixture by pressing with a tablespoon and crack an egg to fill each hole.  

8) Sprinkle the grated cheese on top.  Bake for 10 minutes.  

9) Serve with a splash of pepper sauce and garnish with coriander if you have any. :) 

it is never too early for a pasta...

My hours have gone awry.  I'd gone to bed around 7 or 8 when people are suppose to be having their suppers.  So I've been skipping my dinners for the past week because I was busy sleeping during those hours.  The next morning, I would wake up with an immense hunger and this morning is no exception at all.  I opened my fridge door and found nothing but a little salad greens and a package of fresh basil leaves.  I was desperate so I had to go for something quick and easy.  ;) This time, I used my boyfriend's designed apron as my background.  I love those aprons that he made last year for his brand.  They were so nice and practical!
