Like a Sachertorte

I made this cake with a lady friend of mine with an intense love for anything dangerously rich and calorie-laden, and who despite this, owns a slim physique. The world is unfair, I know– that is until I get well again. I will live for that day… if I do manage to get through theContinue reading “Like a Sachertorte”

B-Caraibe (A Vanilla-Chocolate-Banana Entremet)

It is an entremet with banana mousse, vanilla chantilly whipped cream and chocolate tofu cream sandwiched between springy almond sponge. The banana layer almost gave me a heart attack (though unlikely). I used some really ripe, soggy, close to rotting bananas that were just barely swimming in their own juice. I added lemon juice, blendedContinue reading “B-Caraibe (A Vanilla-Chocolate-Banana Entremet)”

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.

Skinny Chilli Cheese Fries

I thought about making fries. After the episode of absolutely shitty Aston fries last week (talk about a greasy, tasteless, gross mess of potato strips), I dreamt of crunchy, non- greasy, tempura-like, garlicky, peppery potato chunks. Topped with nacho cheese, spring onions and even chilli. And then I found the perfect fries at The PurpleContinue reading “Skinny Chilli Cheese Fries”

Peanut Butter & Jelly Frangipane Pie with PB&J Ice Cream (vegan and gluten free)

That’s it. I give up being boring. Wry , senseless dry humour, incoherent thoughts, nonsensical behaviour (I’m guessing no second person has ever dislocated their ankle by being asleep) is the definition of my name, which I must add people have found many ways to pronounce– some in a way that terrifies every fibre inContinue reading “Peanut Butter & Jelly Frangipane Pie with PB&J Ice Cream (vegan and gluten free)”

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 likeContinue reading “Sesame Chocolate Entremet”

Healthy Hokkaido Bread (Taiwan-inspired!)

. . 6 years ago… Location: Kaoshiung International Airport 高雄国际航空站 Crazy people: Me, Bro, Mum Airport Security: What are you carrying? Mum: Bread. Airport Security: Really? (Disbelieving) Mum: Yes.
