Matcha/ Cocoa Spiral Mooncakes with Red bean/ Sesame Mochi Filling

Let me first start off with a heartfelt apology to everyone out there who has been following my website and saw that it was made private. I realise that I have been very irresponsible to jump into a two-year hiatus so abruptly and without warning. You could say that I’ve been going through a pretty … Continue reading

Super Soft Mochi 超軟又Q的麻署

One of my favourite foods is mochi. That soft, chewy texture and fragrance of glutinous rice never fails to trigger my appetite. In Taiwan, I ate some of the best mochi I’ve ever had in my life, from 一之軒. It was super soft and almost melt-in-the-mouth, with the right amount of chewiness. I decided to come … Continue reading

What I’ve been up to these days

Some foods from the night markets:

Crunchy and Melt-y Sesame Peanut Cookies (Vegan)

. . After yesterday’s post, today’s will be quick and short. I made a variation of the Crunchy and Melt-y Peanut Cookies yesterday. They look uglier, but have greater depth in terms of taste. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.  . . Just for Laughs (Since we all LOVE the Legendary Barney Stinson) . (Source) . … Continue reading

Lower Budget Pastries (+Step-by-step Pineapple paste)

. . Spent a couple minutes getting rid of trash from my mailbox (the real, not virtual one) today, as well as tidying up trash from my room. We all classify different items as trash. My point is, birthday cards, Christmas cards, New Year cards; I don’t know where to put them. Sure, they do bring about … Continue reading

Crunchy, Melting Peanut Cookies (with Vegan option)

. . Apologies for any bad grammar and horrific language you might have seen in last night’s/ the (very) early morning post. Exhaustion and swollen feet took my linguistic capabilities away. I baked 3 varieties of cookies yesterday: pineapple balls, red bean paste balls (very very melt-y) and peanut cookies (crunchy, yet melt-y). The three … 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

Glutinous Rice Balls (Vegan, Fat free & Gluten-free)

My mum had been pining for these for days. And today, I finally got down and dirty to conjure up these babies. Easiest dessert ever. They are glutinous rice balls, more affectionately called “Tang Yuan 汤圆“. I made original, matcha and cocoa flavoured skins, all with peanut filling. . The skin . The filling . … Continue reading

Single Serving Taiwanese Oyster-less Oyster Omelette 没蚵仔的蚵仔煎 (with Vegan option)

I sincerely apologise for the low quality pictures you’re about to see here! The best way to help yourself not miss a place is by having some signature food from that place. And so I made Taiwanese Oyster Omelette… without the oysters. I strongly despise the smell of raw oysters. Hence the oyster-less oyster omelette!! … Continue reading

What I Ate on Wednesday (9) WIAW

Sometimes, a picture does say a million words. I’m not feeling too good today. So, let’s let the pictures speak. . . . . . . . Not in pictures: a handful of red globe grapes, a couple of chips and 3 peanut creme Oreos . I finally got these for a reasonable price! They were … Continue reading
