Rice paddies of Ubud
  • Eating through life, one day at a time.

    Welcome to moisie darling. I’m moisie (pronounced “moy-see”). I love to cook, eat and throw tea parties. I’ve decided to blog about my journey through life and food, sharing my favorite eateries, recipes and cooking tips along the way.

Pot Roast

Now that it’s finally getting cooler, I’ve been in the mood for lots of warm, cozy comfort food. My Mom’s pot roast is at the top of that list! Here’s her recipe, which we made together earlier this week. If you’re short on time, you can dump everything into your pan (or slow cooker) raw, … Continue reading


No-Bake Cereal Munch – Cooking with Toddlers

On my quest to find more toddler-friendly recipes, I came across one for No-Bake Cheerio Bars and had to give them a try! My toddler mixed all the dry ingredients while I made the caramel in the microwave and, voila! We had a nice brownie pan full of the mix. But… as I tried to … Continue reading


English Muffin Pizzas – Cooking with Toddlers

I’ve always loved cooking and have many fond memories of cooking with my mom as a kid. It was only a matter of time before I would invite my kids into the kitchen and I decided it’s time for my 21-month old to start experimenting with food. Though it probably seems too early to some, … Continue reading


Easy Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach has always been one of my dad’s favorite things to eat alongside a good steak. Growing up, I didn’t take to it, but now I LOVE it. I decided to make some to serve with meatloaf and found this an easy and delicious recipe! I started with Ree Drummond’s recipe for creamed spinach. … Continue reading

Halloween Graveyard Dirt

Dirt Recipe: Halloween Graveyard Edition

Our community hosted a Halloween potluck this year and I signed up to make “dirt.” A favorite vanilla pudding, oreo and gummy worm dessert from my childhood, instead of making this in a flower pot, my sister recommended I try a graveyard edition using Milano cookies and icing to make gravestones. So here it is! … Continue reading

Prune Flan Cake

My husband and I are spending a week back in California for his birthday and to visit our families. By coincidence, one of my husband’s cousins from France is visiting his family for the summer. He happens to be a professional French chef! Safe to say we are eating like kings :) Here’s Matthieu’s recipe … Continue reading

Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

Since moving to Hong Kong, I’ve had trouble finding pre-made pie crust in the grocery stores. Though I’ve made pie crust from scratch before, I’m not above using store-bought crust. The thing about Hong Kong grocery stores is they are so small that their stock is usually unpredictable. I finally found Pillsbury pie crust this … Continue reading

Linguini with pancetta and mushrooms

Linguine with Pancetta Mushroom Cream Sauce

My husband and I love to cook, but after spending more than a year cooking out of a cramped kitchen in Hong Kong, we’re in need of some inspiration. I can’t put into words how much I miss the stand mixer, blenders (we have two!), food processor, crock pot and kitchen island we packed into … Continue reading

Trip to Bali: Rice paddies, coffee and food for the soul

*Note: Most of the photos in this post were taken by my talented and loving husband, Guillaume.* Last January, I booked a quick getaway to Bali as my “birthday trip.” The time finally came when I boarded the plane for our Balinese getaway with loads of insect repellant, sunglasses and sundresses in tow. I was … Continue reading

Delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake

My husband and I LOVE coffee cake. When I was in college, I came across a great recipe from Stonewall Kitchen for blueberry sour cream coffee cake. At the time, I didn’t have blueberry jam, so I decided to make a few changes to make this recipe my own. The original recipe is for a … Continue reading
