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.
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

Easy Baby Back Ribs

Easy Baby Back Ribs

Hong Kong has some really spectacular BBQ restaurants. My favorite, Blue Smoke BBQ, has spectacular ribs, burgers and apple pie! You’ve got to love down home American cooking. My husband and I love eating baby back ribs and decided to finally try to cook them ourselves. I was worried it might be a difficult task, … Continue reading

Blossoms in my favorite hue

Eating My Way Through Japan

Visiting Japan during the cherry blossom season has long been an ambition of mine. However, only now that I live in Asia, did it actually seem feasible. When I noticed last September that we had back-to-back holidays (Ching Ming and Easter) resulting in four straight days off of work AND coinciding perfectly with cherry blossom … Continue reading

Eggs Benedict at Brunch Club

Brunch Club Hong Kong

I finally got around to trying Brunch Club (which also doubles as Supper Club) on Peel Street in Hong Kong. I’ve met to go there for ages given they allow dogs outside. Of course, I ended up going on a cold day, so sitting outside was a little bit chilly. Whenever I go for brunch, … Continue reading


Twist on a Can of Chili

You don’t see much chili here in Hong Kong, but it’s a dish that I adore. Now that the weather is cooling down, I’ve unpacked my scarves and sweaters and prepared my palette for hot, delicious comfort food. Last weekend, my husband and I finally checked out Gateway, paradise for the American expat looking for … Continue reading

Turkey from Magnolia

Thanksgiving in Hong Kong

Thanksgiving in Hong Kong will never be the same as gathering around a table with family and friends back home. This year, my husband and I may have been thousands of miles from home, but we were able to enjoy quite the delicious Thanksgiving feast with friends. Thanks to 3 Star Backer, we gathered at … Continue reading

Creamed Corn Casserole

Creamed Corn Casserole

Of course Thanksgiving won’t be the same this year with my husband and I living in Hong Kong, thousands of miles away from our family and old friends. Nonetheless, we are going to an expat Thanksgiving potluck, which will have a jerk turkey! There are so many dishes that come to mind when I think … Continue reading
