Tahini Pistachio Cranberry Cookies

I’ve made these cookies multiple times over the last few weeks and I’m pretty sure everyone has gotten sick of looking at them. Constant instagram stories of these sweet treats teasing you to reach through the screen to dig into them and now they are finally here on this blog. I’ve honestly got an obsession…

Black Sesame Avocado Chocolate Truffles

Growing up in Singapore, I was accustomed to avocado being something that I would associate with sweet desserts. It was only after coming to Melbourne (and doing the thing that millennials are known for *cough* avocado toast *cough*) where I realised that my friends here were finding sweet avocado dishes to be something foreign to…

Chocolate Chip Scones + A Memory of Breakfast in Japan

In the little over 2 weeks that I’ve spent on holidays in Japan, I’ve pretty much ate my weight in desserts. I’ve had amazing memorable desserts, I’ve been at wonderment at the fact that one can actually have a unsatisfactory dessert in Japan and I’ve had life changing desserts.

Chocolate Mint Brownie + A small request

Bittersweet Earl Grey Honey Cake

Come winter, this is the cake I crave. The warmth of spice and honey that floods your senses as it comes out of the oven, that lovely elusive floral hint from the earl grey brew which plays off the honey as you sink your teeth into that first bite is my idea of a warm…

Melting Middles Matcha Cookie

This is the cookie dough lover cookie, the tea lover cookie, the I-love-big-cookies lover cookie and the list goes on… The only person this is not for, is for a person who is on a diet. There are many things that I love in life, chocolates, desserts and cakes being just a few of them….

White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

For a couple of days last week, I had found myself immersed in a leadership event in the middle of Melbourne City. Being deprived of the bustling city life ever since I moved out of my tiny rented city apartment, I was naturally overly eager to gorge on the abundance of food options suddenly available to…
