Tofu Cheesecake with Strawberry Compote in a Jar

Couple of nights ago, I posted a photo on facebook and had many of you guessing what I was making. There were a lot of guesses from ice cream, yoghurt, Tau fu fa, to Panna Cotta with Peanut Butter Brittle (hahaha this is really not quite as fancy as that) and even Tapai (fermented rice,…

Vanilla and Earl Grey Ice Cream

It’s interesting how sometimes the most random conversation can be lead to something… inspiring. One night, a good friend Liz sparked a discussion about Vanilla because she was surprised that the so called Vanilla, does not in fact look like beans at all as she has imagined. Yes, I’m talking about the Vanilla pods that…

Chinese New Year’s Cake (年糕 Nian Gao)

An important announcement to make before anything else: I’m featured in a food magazine! The January issue of nourish! magazine is now available for sale. I’m waiting for my own copy, but if you see one on the stand, do get one. It’s more than just an ordinary food magazine, I can promise you that….

Magnum Ice Cream Party

We have a designated dessert eater at home. And that’s not me. I like my sweet treats in small amounts but Frank can inhale a few Magnums at once (6 in total), so I discovered last Wednesday night at the Magnum preview party. Need to bring him to a glucose tolerance test soon I think….

Pahang MFF: Cream Scones with Strawberry Jam

This is going to be a nutter of a week for me. 3 gigs in a week (2 on Friday) and the rest is filled with rehearsals and various events. Silly season has well and truly arrived! It’s Pahang month for Malaysia’s Food Fest, hosted by Wendy. Read more about Pahang and its local delicacy…

Linzer Torte with a Lovely Twist

It’s been a while since I participated in the Bake Along challenge, hosted by hosted by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours and Lena from Frozen wings and Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids. The theme this time is intriguing, at least to me. I’ve never heard of Linzer Tart before, and when I consulted Dr Google, it gave me Linzer cookies! Turns…

Think Out of the Shell: The NutriPlus Pastry Competition Semi Final

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates on this space. I’ve been preoccupied with several commitments, one of which was the NutriPlus Pastry Competition. You see, several weeks ago, Veronica of Quay Po Cooks contacted me to submit a recipe for a pastry competition. Pastry? I can’t remember the…

Not Your Average Carrot Cake

As of yesterday, I’ve turned 29. The very last year of my 20s *shudders*. Where’s that time machine when I need it? The only consolation is that my birthday celebrations seem to get better every year! True enough, I had a fabulous time with a bunch of crazy, fun loving people. Though I’ll say my…

Make and Eat Tau Huay Day

Many food bloggers in Singapore have been rather upset over the Dîner en Blanc fiasco (the dust has since settled following an apology from the organiser). Do read here, here and here for the background. Even though I don’t live in Singapore, I thought I’d join in to make my very own Tau Huay (Tau Fu Fa)….

Strawberry-Lemon Whoopie Pies

Well, what do you know…. the little hint of itchy throat (or sandy, as previously mentioned) has now turned into a full blown tonsilitis. Just grand. I might have to turn up for my rehearsal tomorrow wearing a mask, quite unlike the inconsiderate unknown person who’s passed his/her germs to me. mmm-hmmph. Not happy, Jan….
