Remember when I stumbled across a patch of wild leeks a few weeks ago and was ecstatic to collect them for some seasonal recipes? Imagine my surprise (yet again) to come across them in my crisper when rummaging around for lunch ideas! They hold up surprisingly well in the fridge. Of course I had to come up […]
This post is not really about breaking eggs. Well actually, there were some eggs broken in the process of preparing the brunch pictured herein, but it was done as humanely as possible. This post is about the original Soph n’ Stuff creation I shall henceforth refer to as “Eggs Beneduck”. And it is Breaking because […]
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 […]

And of course, some fruit to garnish. Don’t forget […]
My beloved and faithful readers, by now you must have come to the realization that I have a keen fascination with quail eggs. Not only are they tiny and adorable with their brown speckled shells which are blue as robin’s eggs inside, but they taste super yummy. And at the risk of raising your suspicion […]
I love eggs, and I don’t care what those doctors say, there’s no way a single egg can be worse than a double down. Ridiculousness! Tonight I made something that I have been meaning to make for some time, but I didn’t have the appropriate equipment, ie. Ramekins. But finally, on this, the day of […]
