One thing that struck me this past week was while chatting with Dad and reminiscing about Grandpa P. I had such a busy week last week that I struggled to find time to attend service for his wake and as a result, I felt somewhat guilty about not making time. In the end, I was … Continue reading Blueberry and Grapes Rye Cake.
I'm impressed and awed at how Europe and the West have started embracing body positivity, especially on social media. Just today, I was browsing through the bikini section of ASOS.com hoping to find something for our December holiday to Krabi and while I found some cute pieces, I also noticed that they hadn't airbrushed away … Continue reading Niggling Thoughts. Body Image. Embracing Self.
I am often blessed by Aunties, Uncles and friends who gift me all sorts of ingredients from their travels abroad. They know that I bake and many will haul back bags of macadamia nuts, maple syrup, pecans, poppy seeds, tonka beans, coconut sugar... And the list goes on. Most ingredients can be found in Singapore … Continue reading Hazelnut Gâteau Breton
I had a session with Dr. A this afternoon and somehow found myself sitting in the clinic promptly at 1pm, only to find out that my appointment was at 2pm. Nice! So I went grocery shopping since my initial intention was to go after my appointment. Did a switcheroo and was back once again at … Continue reading New York New York.
I've been so SO busy the last couple weeks and this week but no complaints! Apart from making a huge mess in the kitchen and making the kitchen floor feel as though there's a layer of flour covering it (probably does). That's the thing about my work. I love the entire process of baking and … Continue reading Cake Galore! And an Orange Yoghurt Cake.
I've been spending a lot of time thinking about life lately. In particular, the fleetingness of it. How often we take life for granted, especially me. Some time last week, Mum shared with me about her good friend's friend, S, relapsing in her battle against cancer. S has always been a big fan of my … Continue reading Savoury Beetroot Walnut Loaf.
The last week has been incredibly busy for Flo so much so that he had to go into work over the weekend as well. The project he's been working on with his team the last few months finally went live and they were buzzing around checking, checking, and double checking that everything with the system … Continue reading Cashew Butter Blondies… It’s Not All About Looks.
I've mentioned quite a few times in my posts about how love is shown so much through food especially here in Asia. Even between Flo and I, acts of love are conveyed through food. While I tend to enjoy gathering up ingredients and taking care in preparing them, cooking them, and plating the dish up … Continue reading Feeding with Love.
This post today on something boozy is very apt. I never touch alcohol apart from the odd sip here and there. When I say 'the odd sip', I really mean 'the odd sip'. Anything more and I'll be tippling over. But that doesn't mean I don't like some alcohol in my cakes! I love the … Continue reading Boozy Apple Walnut Cinnamon Bundt Cake.
It's been a while since my brownies and blondies have made an appearance. I'm still very much into baking them in my leisure time but I'm trying not to make them into too much of a habit else I'll have little time to experiment on baking 'other things'. And we don't want the 'other things' to … Continue reading Snickerdoodle Spelt Blondies.
