Earl Grey Cookies with Dark Chocolate

Wouldn’t it be lovely to pay only for a box of all the ingredients you’ll only need for what you’re baking? And God no, I’m not referring to cake mixes. Enjoy the full baking from scratch experience without the hassle of measuring, portioning, and shopping for individual ingredients when you purchase a Baking Kit with BakeStarters….

Dutch Baby Pancakes

Ever since I got my new cast iron skillet, these babies (literally) are my new go-to for breakfasts or brunches. No need for grocery shopping because you’d already have most of these ingredients sitting in your kitchen. (And if you don’t, I’m not judging) Almost like making a cake out of a box, you dump all…

Peanut Butter & Bacon French Toast with Caramelized Bananas

There are 2 kinds of people in this world: Those who love mixing sweet and savory, and those who think it’s absolutely blasphemous to do so. I certainly belong to the former. Chocolate and cheese, pulled-pork and maple syrup, honey and chilli, bacon and waffles… you name it!   Today, we’re making Peanut Butter and…

Toblerone Fudge Brownies with Crinkly Crust

“Brownies are the easiest to make.” That’s what they say… and I do agree to an extent. These bad boys usually don’t need any creaming or whipping. Just mix it all up in a bowl and bake it in the oven! Poof! You’re done… also on the condition that you didn’t try to change the recipe. Now,…

Churros

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! To be honest, I’ve never celebrated this Holiday as we don’t have it in either Singapore or Canada. I’m simply hopping on the bandwagon to post a popular dessert in Mexico! When I think about churros, I’m reminded of theme parks and street fairs. Your rides would not be complete…

Pineapple Tarts with a Twist

So I guess it’s become a yearly affair. It just doesn’t feel like Chinese New Year when you don’t stuff yourself with the never-ending stream of cookies. And there’s just one in particular that I absolutely can’t do without.. my pineapple tarts. These are probably one of the most time-consuming cookies to make, yet quick to finish!…

Eggnog Scones with Orange Peel

Nothing spells Christmas like eggnog and cinnamon spice. A warm scone by the fireplace, away from the blistering cold as you slowly sip your favourite cup of coffee… Who am I kidding; it’s Singapore and it’s 28°C (82°F) here. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am starting to miss the snow! I’m waiting for the…

Pumpkin Waffles with Peanut Butter & Almond Nuts

Waffles again..?! Oops! Well, can I use the fall season as an excuse for these pumpkin waffles? (even though there’s no fall season where I live now) I really miss the pumpkin baking season in North America where everyone would make pumpkin-related dishes just because it’s “that time of the year”. Halloween, Thanksgiving and other…

S’mores Waffles

Sometimes the pain in making your own food is deciding on what to eat. So like many others, I looked through my kitchen pantry. Lo and behold, there was an unopened packet of marshmallow. S’mores it was! Making waffles after all, is plain amazing. You already have most of the items you need at home…

Coconut Waffles with Mango Syrup

It is quite astounding that I have never  owned a waffle maker until now, given that I have always been obsessed over waffles since I was a child. My fascination with waffles was probably inherited from my dead, another waffle fanatic. But who can resist a plate of fresh waffles drizzled with maple syrup on a…

Mushroom And Chicken Risotto

I was never a big fan of reality TV shows as I found them to be overly dramatic and I was constantly annoyed with their dialogues. Even as food lover, I was reluctant to watch Masterchef. When I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, I realized how addicting it was. The more I watched it, the hungrier…

Oreo Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Oreo cookies have always been a family favourite since I was a kid. You know what’s awesome about them? They’re pretty much bite-sized “Cookies ‘n Cream” biscuits! Also, identifying the Oreo thief in the family is invariably simple. Look out for black crumbs on the corner of their lips.. or stained black teeth! 😉 It’s such a…

Chocolate Lava Cake

I’m going out on a limb here when I say that the Chocolate Lava Cake is a de rigueur inclusion in many high-end French / American restaurants and cafes. So… if you missed out on baking your Significant Other (S.O.) something romantic for Valentine’s Day, fret not! The upcoming March 14th is White Day (ホワイトデ)!…

Super Crumbly Pineapple Tarts – Nastar Cookies

Hi Folks, Guess what?! Chinese New Year is almost here! And that means… lots and lots and lots of baking for me! Sorry I know I haven’t been updating my blog as much as I had before. Can’t help feeling guilty about that. Eeks… I must say, work, yoga, and social life pretty much sums…

Sinful Chocolate Cake

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s candy season! And when you say candy…. I think… chocolate bars! And that.. is what Halloween is awesome for. “Not a big fan of chocolate.” Have you ever heard anyone say that? I’ll probably roll my eyes and shudder when I hear something so preposterous. I still consider the statement to…

Ensaymada – Sweet Filippino Buns

When I was asked to do a Guest Post for “Go Bake Yourself“, I was extremely excited by the opportunity! The author, Choc Chip Uru is a young teen who grew up in Aussie land. She’s definitely one of the most inspiring teens I have ever met to date! I must say, don’t judge a…

Lemon Barley Drink

If you’ve been following my blog, you would notice that I do not have a single recipe for beverage. Why? There is simply nothing that would deter my appetite when it comes to eating. However, I must say I’m not a big drinker. Here are the drinks that I tend to have on a regular…

Jalapeño Cheese Muffins

Okay guys, I’m sowwie! I know it’s been a while since I last blogged! I shall now hang my head down in shame for the next…… minute…….. Alright, minute over! Anyway, I find it hard to believe that we’re already living in the month of June! How did half the year go by without me…
