Chocolate macaron

Time to give the feared macarons another try again. Out of the previous 7+ attempts at a range of different flavours, only 2 had come out completely perfect– nice feet, no cracks, no collapsing… Frankly, I have to admit that this batch wasn’t one of the perfect ones, but it was still good enough to…

Banana Muffins

Got a load of super ripe bananas and don’t know what to do with them? Well you must have heard of how bananas are the sweetest when the skin is covered with black spot, and that’s exactly what I got today. So I’m giving you this mouth-watering banana muffin recipe that I’ve used for nearly…

(No sugar) Waffles

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there in the world! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done and being a mum 24/7 non-stop. This week, I’m sharing my easy waffle recipe with all of you keen foodies out there who might be looking for a simple recipe to make for breakfast for Mother’s…

Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve been waiting to share this for ages. It has become my breakfast, tea AND dessert everyday for a week, and no, I’m not bored of it yet. Cinnamon is one of the things I discovered a bit later in life, and I still remember my distaste for cinnamon just 2 years ago. However, my brain…

Hasselback Sweet Potato

So if you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, you’re bound to have seen this ingenious creation circulating around the internet. Potatoes + cheese: we have loaded cheese fries, potato gratin, potato skins, baked potato… But this one, it’s like a hybrid of tornado chips on a stick but elevated into a lunch-worthy dish. I’m…

No Machine Cookies n’ Cream Icecream

The summer months are coming up and everyone is looking for THE dessert without having to leave home. SO… I’ve finally decided to give this “2 ingredient no machine ice-cream” trend a try after years of lagging behind. I had made no machine ice-cream a few times where you were supposed to mix the mixture…

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

I admit I’m a little late to the carrot cake party, but hey, that doesn’t mean I’m not absolutely head over heels them now! I’d say these cupcakes are more to the muffin side as they’re more moist compared to a traditional cupcake, but they’re still absolutely delicious, especially when they’re covered in my cream…

Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting is just one of those things that gives such a unique flavour, totally different from a tradition frosting, which to me is just overly sweet and tasteless (I hope I’m not insulting too many people out there). Adding the cream cheese allows you to cut back on the sugar and gives the…

Chickpea Patties with Coleslaw

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative or just to try a new dish, these chickpea patties are totally the thing for you. It’s such a throw-together dish of whatever you have in your kitchen pantry, as long as you have a can of chickpeas of course. I love chickpeas, and I’ve been thinking of…

Red Cabbage Coleslaw

This is a light and refreshing slaw (yes, I know it’s only of a single colour) that’s completely different from the traditional coleslaw that is lathered with mayonnaise. It goes well with any dish, with a vibrant purple colour that will bring out the contrast between the main and the side, as well as adding colour…

Taiyaki with mango

This taiyaki has a crisp outer shell, a warm and soft cake on the inside, then the sweet and juicy mango right at the centre.

Orange curd

This is THE curd to put on top of everything sweet you can possibly think of– cakes, scones, cupcakes…
