As promised in my last post, I'm here to share with you my recipe for these loaf cakes. Since I'd already used the zest of my one and only grapefruit in my Hazelnut Flour Brownies, I was left with just the pulp and juice. I'm not so keen on eating grapefruit as is, but I … Continue reading Thyme for Grapefruit and Cranberries.
Just a few shots of a recent private order that I had involving a Lemon Thyme Genoise Sponge Cake with Honey Mascarpone Cream. As a result, I found myself with quite a lot of Thyme on my hands (hur hur) with which I ended up using in cake and dinner. I also spied Grapefruit going … Continue reading Grapefruit Chocolate Chunk Hazelnut Flour Brownies.
I've been spending the bulk of this year trying to maintain this blog and run new recipes every alternate day apart from when I'm off travelling. I enjoy playing around with ingredients and trying to pair off different flavours together to see if they work. The last few weeks have been hectic though, which means … Continue reading Pat-A-Cake.
My boyfriend, Florian, is a HUGE Nutella fan. Most weekday mornings, he'll have a good breakfast of yoghurt with fruits, oats and nuts but come the weekends, he loves treating himself to toast slathered with a layer of Nutella. Some occasions he opts of a slice with Peanut Butter, otherwise, it's always Nutella on both. … Continue reading Paleo Nutella Brownies.
As you can probably already tell, most of my time in the kitchen is spent on baking up the sweet stuff. A few times a week, I crack my brain trying to think of what I can make for Flo that he'll enjoy, but that's also a little bit healthier. So last week, I decided … Continue reading YamiSoba.

And when I found them, they were screaming to be used stat. I've always been interested in the idea of mixing the flavours of … Continue reading Doubly Awesome Balsamic Strawberry Jam.
Last weekend, Flo and I decided to make a date of both our Saturday and Sunday evenings. I got to pick my restaurant of choice on Saturday, while he, Sunday. Since we were planning on watching The Hitman's Bodyguard - which was pretty good by the way, especially with Samuel L. Jackson although I'm not … Continue reading Date Nights and Cook Ins.
Matcha is love! I haven't met a single person who doesn't love matcha. YET. So as long as I've not met this one matcha-unloving person, then I shall choose to believe that that person does not exist! So I had matcha powder, earl grey tea, and cherries at hand and in my awesome little brain, decided … Continue reading Earl Grey Matcha Cherry Cakelets.
I'm Ba-ack! Flo and I spent the last weekend trying to get this new blog site together, cleaning things up, recategorising, and basically trying to make it look more pretty and organised. To be honest, Flo did most of the work and spent hours trying to figure out how to configure everything. I tried to … Continue reading Hey Honey, It’s Cranberry and Pistachio.
As mentioned in my previous post, I had some passionfruit curd left over from after I did the two big birthday cakes for Aunty YM's 70th. Unfortunately, I could only upload 2 photos here because I've taken up ALL my space on WordPress for now. I'll be spending this weekend with Flo upgrading my blog … Continue reading No Such Thing As Leftovers.
