Oregano eggs

The humble egg is one of my favourite things to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And when I came across this recipe on Epicurious, I knew Uova all’Oregano would be making an appearance in the Soph n’ Stuff kitchen. Soon. So today I whipped up this simple yet elegant brunch just for the two […]

New layout…what do you think?

Welp, as you can see, my dear readers, I have changed the layout of Soph n’ Stuff. It is a tad less girlish and a bit cleaner, and more customizable. I would love your feedback, if you have a moment. Here’s a quick poll. Feel free to leave comments too! I am still tinkering with […]

The definition of lazy dog

172:365, a photo by Sophie Idsinga on Flickr. Via Flickr: River basks in the morning sun. He is always slow to get going, unlike most dogs. He has to be cajoled and poked to get out of bed, after which he makes his way to the couch for his early morning nap.
