Vegan Pecan Pie with Press-in Sourdough Discard Crust

Pecan pie is one particularly expensive pie to make where I live. Procuring 250g of this nut cost me $8.50 from the cheapest source I could find. The crust is a press in oil-based sourdough discard crust. I didn’t expect it to be flaky at all but it was and quite delicious as well.

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 comeContinue reading “Super Soft Mochi 超軟又Q的麻署”

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)”

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 threeContinue reading “Crunchy, Melting Peanut Cookies (with Vegan option)”

Marbled Pound Cake with Perfected Mock ‘Buttercream’ (Whole Wheat, Low Fat & w Vegan option)

What happened on New Year’s eve? . I: Watched 3 hours of Lizzie McGuire while waiting for Show Luo to magically appear on my television screen. Yes, I’m on a ‘Lizzie McGuire’ streak right now.

Watched a giant beetle crawl over the television screen but couldn’t pick up enoughContinue reading “Marbled Pound Cake with Perfected Mock ‘Buttercream’ (Whole Wheat, Low Fat & w Vegan option)”

Best Muffins Ever! (w Vegan option, also low fat and whole wheat)

This girl hates shopping… for clothes.  Hours of absolute boredom. Feet swollen. And 500 bucks later, the lady of the house got me enough clothes to fill up my wardrobe (which she had so nicely emptied out).  Feigned enthusiasm got back genuine enthusiasm from the lady of the house who happily declared how ugly I was andContinue reading “Best Muffins Ever!
