Just before Chinese New Year, in addition to gifting my neighbours with some Ginger Cookies, I also baked a batch of these raspberry pistachio brownies because I wasn't sure if the little kiddies next door would be partial to the spicy heat of ginger. Now, I cannot also be sure that these deep, rich, fudgy … Continue reading Raspberry Pistachio Brownies.
It's not easy thinking of where to bring my food-loving boyfriend to on special occasions. Italian's a no-no for him and European food in general is not his preference. Flo loves local flavours but isn't quite so keen on Peranakan food so places like Folklore and Candlenut i.e. more upscaled restaurants with a local twist … Continue reading Cheek by Jowl, Boon Tat Street.
It's been a while since I used Rye in my baking and since Aunty Aud sweetly bought some fresh pecans and walnuts for me before Chinese New Year, I thought to bake up some Rye Brownies with Pecans. Pecan nuts cost a pretty penny here in Singapore so I usually use walnuts although granted, their … Continue reading Salted Rye and Pecan Brownies
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!! This post isn't related really to Lunar New Year but since it's being posted up today i.e. the First Day of the Year of the Dog, then Gong Xi Fa Cai to all those celebrating! I mentioned to Flo last night that I'm beginning to enjoy living in our new place … Continue reading Life’s Lessons.
Last Thursday was Flo's birthday and of course, we couldn't let the day go by without a celebratory meal. Since Samir was in town, we decided to go somewhere a little more casual with a second dinner planned for just Flo and I once Samir left (that second dinner's tonight actually!). I was given the … Continue reading Kimme, Amoy Street.
So this week has been another crazy week with baking galore mainly for cafes. I cannot help but sometimes laugh at how some weeks, when orders pour in, they keep coming in until I get all panicky about not being able to meet all of them. And yet, I do. I guess part of it … Continue reading Passionfruit Rum and Raisin Brownies
A cosy cafe-bistro tucked within Tiong Bahru has been getting some rave reviews. I wanted to wave it away because I don't like to buy into hype but Flo's friend, Pascal, lives a few doors down and since we were popping by his place last weekend, we decided to dinner together at Merci Marcel - … Continue reading Merci Marcel.
Some days are for leisurely strolls and some days are for quick sprints. Today's one for the latter. This week is proving to be a trying week with lots of cake orders lined up and too little time. So no time for chit-chat. Just know that Matcha+Bananas+Caramel+Walnuts make for one hot orgy in your mouth … Continue reading Matcha Banana Caramelita Bars
Just before our move, a new cafe reached out to me to supply them with some cakes. I had to think up a menu for their Japanese-Local fusion theme and present them with some samples to try. I enjoy the experimentation aspect when opportunities like these arise and it allows me to explore more new … Continue reading Miso Chicken.
I spent this afternoon the way I always do - baking at Pathlight. The weather in Singapore this last month has ranged from swelteringly hot to crisp and cool depending on whether it's sunny or rainy. Well, it decided to be both today. When I left for Pathlight, the sun was blazing away so baking … Continue reading Blueberry Hazelnut Brownies.
