Bread Pudding Tart with Brown Sugar Crumble (low fat & whole wheat)

Dear Barney, or Mr Stinson (Recovering Mentally Unsound human being, Whatever you prefer I call you), You’re handsome, hot, surprising sensitive, sometimes hilariously dumb, an insult to Barney the Dinosaur (since you two share the same name), terribly rich, gorgeously well-dressed and would totally win a Girls’ Choice Award. Unfortunately, I chanced upon your patent for … Continue reading

Exploding Cream Buns 爆浆面包 (Whole Wheat & Vegan)

. One of the things I love most of Taiwan is the varied speeds of change in the country. The rocky path to my grandparents’ house  have those same old rocks embedded, the same old metal spring buried at one side, rows of crops of 槟榔叶 (betel leaves) grown by the same old farmers at … Continue reading

Oreo Coffee Cream Layered Cake for One (with the Perfect vegan Whipped Cream)

I’ve been up to so many crazy stuff these days. Like making my idiotic right arm more horrible than it already is (I think its badly sprained), convincing my brother that a B in Math (for ‘A’ levels) means I’m incapable of helping him with his math homework, sulking over the gold dye (for highlights) … Continue reading

Japanese Strawberry and Cheese Shortcake

This cake serves one hungry person or 2-3 for a light snack. Its a recipe of a Japanese chef. I’ll make this post snappy. No words from this moment on. 😀

Just Because its the ‘A’ levels Doesn’t Mean You’ll Get All ‘A’s…

. So the ‘A’ level results were released on Friday. Before that, you guys saw me burping out words like ‘acetylcholine’, ‘2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine’, and ‘synapses’ and other stuff and probably assumed I was reaching for membership in an asylum. I was really being nonsensical and acting all smartypants so that I could conjure just a bit of … Continue reading

Sesame Chocolate Entremet

. . I’ve been sick the past few days, since I went off medication. My cousin’s passing still feels like a blur– like its half real and half a nightmare.  So much like a dream that most of the time I still believe he’s alive and not suddenly without heartbeat. The last time something like … Continue reading

Guest Post: Counterfeit Chocolate Cake Balls (Vegan)

. . I really get you. I know your heart. I read your mind. I recognise your innermost desires.  Alright, I lied. I’m no mind reader but I guess that you’re probably sick of my ridiculous sarcasm, limited vocabulary and dry sense of humour. And I apologise, alright?  I’m sorry.  So I got someone more … Continue reading

Red Velvet Cheesecake for 2 (Reduced Sugar & Fat)

I’m happy to announce that I have conquered a lower fat and lower sugar version of the Cheesecake Factory’s Red Velvet Cheesecake. Its basically a basic cheesecake sandwiched between two layers of Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting ‘glue’. Its a perfect combination, I kid you not. Cookies and cream? Get the hell out of … Continue reading

Failed Macarons– Round 3

. . Macarons and I have the dumbest love-hate relationship. I love the challenge of making and the not-very-challenging activity of eating them. But I hate it when the stupid macarons crack/sink/refuse to leave the lovely parchment paper. Dumb macarons. I would like to say I almost succeeded this time. After all, THEY GREW FEET! … Continue reading

What Might Be the BEST Pineapple Tarts EVER! (Vegan Filling)

. . What I (and maybe most of you) don’t say enough: I love you. Don’t worry, even if you’re old and wrinkly and sick, I’ll still take care of you and be by your side. (because its cheesy?) to your parents or whoever I understand what you say, but I have my own plans. … Continue reading
