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…

Hot Dog Buns ASIAN STYLE!

  Whenever I hear the term “hot dog buns”, the $1 hot dog buns from Ikea / Costco automatically come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, I love the old-school hot dog buns that many consider as comfort junk food. I’ve even heard that the ones in New York are probably the best! … oh…

My Little Easter Basket-Weave Cake

This easter I was egg-specting to see hot cross buns sold in bakeries, easter bunnies in the malls and other hoppy-looking decorations. I didn’t quite carrot all that I wasn’t in North America. Easter HAD to be internationally celebrated in at least some ways! After all, the Easter Bunny is almost as famous as Santa there….
