Almond Biscotti


I had my first biscotti when I was at a coffee joint many years back. I remembered how intrigued I was at how hard and crunchy this cookie snack was and how well it went with my cup of coffee.

Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcake


Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcake started to be very popular a few years ago. I remembered a pack of 6 from Polar would cost S$12. I would buy them as my hubby loved custard....until my friend shared with me a Hokkaido Chiffon recipe.

Pecan Custard Tart



I love pecans for it's unique buttery and caramel flavour and custard for it's sweet and creamy texture. These two put together and served in a buttery and crisp shortbread crust will be a heavenly pair.

Kimchi Tofu Soup


This is one soup that I enjoy especially on cool weather. It is good on its own as a quick & easy one-pot dish if I add vermicelli (tung hoon), or accompany with other dishes with a bowl of rice. It's super quick & easy, and extremely versatile. You can have a very basic kimchi + tofu soup, or add in more ingredients like meat, crab meat or vermicelli for a more sumptuous and complete meal. 

The best part is...it's ready in minutes!!

Did this a I few days back as I have some left over pumpkins from making Pumpkin Ondeh Ondeh and was craving for brownie. So the idea just came to me to bake a brownie with pumpkin in it!

Pumpkin Ondeh Ondeh


Ondeh Ondeh, a popular traditional Malay and Peranakan dessert, is a bite-sized boiled glutinous rice ball filled with gula melaka and coated with grated coconut. What I love most about these delectable snack is the burst of melted gula melaka into your mouth when you put these chewy bite-sized balls in your mouth. It's truly a symphony of texture and flavour in your mouth. Heavenly!

Pumpkin Kaya



I love kaya. Love it so much that I can eat it on its own. It's not that healthy as there are lots of eggs used to make kaya traditionally. So this Pumpkin Kaya recipe that I chanced upon got me really excited, because no eggs are required at all!

Sweet Potato Balls in Ginger Broth (姜汁番薯圆)


This super healthy dessert was featured in Channel U's "Healthy U: Episode 2". This is the first time I am watching this show and find it really informative and enlightening. This episode talks about the damaging effects of preservatives and additives on our body. It is very common for us to consume food with seasonings that are chemically combined and have adverse effect on our body. Over time, toxins may build up in our body. Hence, it is  very important that we try to avoid excessive intake of such chemicals and eliminate the toxins from our body.

Black Sesame Red Bean Bun


I was at a bakery at Fortune Centre the other day oogling at their wonderful creations and deciding what bread to buy, simply because they have so many interesting types of breads. One of them that caught my eye was black sesame with azuki bun. Since I've run out of bread for breakfast, I decided to try baking some Black Sesame Red Bean Buns.
