Singapore is not under lockdown but like most families, we're trying to stay home as much as possible. We still go out for groceries since we've refused to give in to panic buying. It is clear that there is enough to go around at the supermarkets but sadly, many have been taking it upon themselves … Continue reading Staying Home.
I've been back to the kitchen baking up sweet treats once more. Last post, I shared my lychee cupcakes recipe and a couple posts before there, a lovely Italian ragu. This cake below, a private order, was what spurred me back into getting my hands dirty. On Saturday, I was invited to share at a … Continue reading Recipe: Banana Walnut Rye Bread.
With a wee bit more fresh Thyme on my hands (hey it's me! Pun was obviously intended), I decided to whip up a batch of Beef Goulash as well as home baked Focaccia for dinner earlier last week.

I had some RenneKookies - Dark Chocolate Cranberry Cookies, … Continue reading Avo Power!
By now, I think it's safe to say that most of us know of my dear Flo's fondness for bread. I've managed to make fresh bread from time to time to help alleviate his cravings for good German bread that he feels is missing in Singapore. Last weekend, he requested for some Welmeisterbrotchen aka World … Continue reading Ultimate Weltmeisterbrotchen. Singapore Style.
Today meaning Monday, 25 April, is Alex's birthday so Happy Birthday Alex Cadby!! His birthday being on a weekday meant that we took the opportunity to celebrate it yesterday instead. Apparently, in some parts of Europe (Germany *cough cough*), celebrating or wishing a person a happy birthday before their birthday is considered to be taboo. … Continue reading Tasting the Tropics.
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,” John 11:25 It's obviously not Easter Sunday anymore but writing back on it, Easter Sunday is the day Jesus rose from the dead. The truth is, as much as I try to have … Continue reading YEaster Sunday.
I believe I can safely say that after his love for me, Flo's next love is for bread. Ok. Squeeze his beautiful sister, family and close friends in, thennnn you have bread! I know that my dearest boyfriend can be quite particular about bread what with him being from Germany and having bread as a … Continue reading For Love.
