Healthy Breakfast Muffins

Hi Everyone. Since I went to South Africa for a holiday I’ve been eating non-stop. I gained about 8 pounds and now that I’m back home in Korea I have to get back to eating normally and making some changes in my sugar intake so you can expect a few more healthier meals from me in the next few weeks 😀


Bran muffins are an excellent meal for breakfast, lunch or even just for a snack, they are wholesomely delicious and juicy. I use a basic packet of Bran Muffin mix and make it as specified and then comes the special ingredients…. add a cup of raisins and 1 grated apple. This gives the muffins a fruity taste and moist consistency. You could even go further by adding a grated carrot to give it more of a carrot cake feel.



  • 1 BOX/Packet bran muffin mix- around 250 grams (usually you should add eggs or oil and water or milk, just check the specifications for the muffin mix)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon ( Optional)
  • 1 grated carrot (optional)

Mix the muffin mix as indicated on the packet. Add the raisins, grated apple, carrot and cinnamon. Scoop mixture into lightly greased muffin pans and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.




50 Shades gift ideas

Hi everyone. Today we’ll continue our 50 Shades of Grey theme. We’re going to try and keep the post clean and classy even though 50 shades is all about BDSM. The aim is to express your sexuality without being trashy… right?

Using subtle jewellery and accessories are a great way to express ourselves, especially with cute little bondage rings and bracelets. If you’re not into jewellery you could always opt for book holders or even wine glass rings for your next party or dinner.

50 Shades of Grey Inspired Valentines

Since 50 Shades Darker is releasing for Valentines Day, I thought why not use it as a theme for Valentines Day.

Today’s drink will be a Perfect martini, with equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth and garnished with pearls instead of olives.


Easy and elegant.


Holiday insigts

For the past 2 weeks we’ve been back in South Africa. We’ve been soaking up the sun and visiting our families. It feels like the time have been flying at lightning speed.

At least we got to spend some quality time with our families. I feel sad because I miss them, but they all seem to be doing fine.

I also had the opportunity to spend some time with my stepmom. It took me some time to get use to her as my dad married her barely 6 months after my mother’s passing. After my mom died I didn’t really want to form any new connections in my life. It was so painful losing someone so close to me, and I had a lot of regrets. I remember telling my husband that I wanted to visit my mom on the weekend because I’m worried about her, by then she was already bedridden and didn’t really open her eyes or speak, but I use to talk to her in any case and sometimes, just sometimes she would open her eyes and faintly smile at me. But that Thursday, my dad phoned me and told me that she had passed away.

Since then I stayed away from new people and new relationships, but after this weekend I feel that I can start allowing people back into my life.

My outfit this week is my little Korean style dress. I like wearing it because it reminds me of Korea. It also has a loose fit and allows you to move around in it. I got it form Teeny Weeny in Seoul, Korea.




Bewitching Valentines food ideas

Since this week’s Valentines theme is Witches I’ve decided to make some foods that looks like it has a lot of herbs , vegetables and fruits.

For our bewitching food basket today we have potato cookies, mini spinach quiches and “Mama’s more lemon than meringue” tart/pie.


These are mostly side dishes but you can add any kind of meat or other veggies to your Valentines meal

Potato Cookies (makes 12-15)



  • 3 large potatoes(grated)
  • 1 onion (grated)
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • hand full of chives
  • oil for frying

Grate the potatoes and onions and mix them together. Then mix in the 2 eggs. Add the flour and chives and mix together.

In a frying pan heat some oil, just enough to lightly cover the pan. Scoop a generous tablespoon of the mixture into the pan. Fry until browned on both sides. Let them cool for about 2 minutes before serving.

Creamed Spinach Quiche



  • 700 grams frozen creamed spinach
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella or other white cheese (grated)
  • 1 fresh onion grated
  • 200 gram fried onions
  • 4 slices of ham, chopped into small squares
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour

Mix all the ingredients together. Scoop mixture into a pie dish or multiple small pie dishes and bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven. I made mine in tiny bread pans.

Mama’s More Lemon Than Meringue pie

This Lemon Meringue is the one my mother in law always bakes for my husband on his birthday. She’s not a fan of too much meringue so she only makes a thin layer but her lemon filling is the best I’ve ever tasted. Its firm and has a subtle balance between sweet and sour. One pie only lasts 1 day in our house.



For the crust

  • 2oo gram biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling

  • 2 cans of condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 egg yolks ( keep the egg whites for the meringue)

For the Meringue

  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (356 fahrenheit)

For the crust.

Crush the cookies until only rough crumbs are left. Mix the melted butter with the cookie crumbs and push it down into a pie pan.

For the filling

Mix all the ingredients well and pour onto the cookie crust.

For the Meringue.

Mix the egg whites and sugar until it is light and fluffy and scoop it onto the Lemon filling. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Served chilled.

I hope you enjoyed these recipe’s. The meringue is to die for so I hope you try it 😀
