What I Use In My Kitchen

Hi Everyone, This post is not quite like the usual and not recipe based. Instead it’s more of a day-to-day type of post. Because I’ve been asked quite frequently about the products that I use, I have put together a page for you listing some of the common items that I use/recommend. I will continue…

Pineapple “Tart” Shortbread

“Jingle bells jingle bells”…oops, wrong season, probably meant to be more like “dong dong qiang” (I’ve lost my mind, it’s 1am now and I am overly excited about my upcoming trip back home next week so please forgive my madness.) It’s me again back with a new recipe for those who: A – Love shortbread…

Hong Kong Style Butter Cookies – 珍妮曲奇香港 inspired

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you have been well. I promise, I am not trying to be an “inspired by” type of recipe blog, but I “blame” my curiosity towards such recipes stems from my childhood up-bringing. 😛 My family would use to go to restaurants and sit around the table of food…

Pappa Roti / Rotiboy (Mexican Coffee Buns)

I know I have been teasing everyone for nearly a year on my Instagram with this recipe, but to defend myself a little, this recipe was first delayed because I really wasn’t too happy with it and then finally because I had some health issues that kept me out of the kitchen for a few…

If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I have recently started up a Chai brand called Chaikra. And given the nature of Hot Cross Buns, I immediately thought of doing a Chai twist to them. With Easter right around the corner, there is no better way to celebrate than with the…

Melt In Your Mouth Pineapple Tarts

I can almost hear the firecrackers and clangs of Chinese New Year as we approach one of my favourite celebrations of the year. An excuse to have food in abundance, be surrounded by family and a period of guaranteed laughter. A celebration steeped in superstitious beliefs where this one short moment in the year will…

How to make Thin, Crisp Biscotti

‘Tis the season to be jolly… Well, perhaps 2020 may not exactly be what history would remember as a joyous year. But I do like to see the bright side of things and focus on all the happy moments, and there have been plenty. One such highlight is being able to spend more time exploring…

Soft, Fluffy, Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

Some say that nothing beats the smell of fresh baked bread coming out of the oven, that warm cosy scent that for some reason speaks to an innate part of us making us feel like everything will be okay. Even I am guilty of having that sentiment. But I take that back. What it should…

Cruffins + Kouign-amman

Hi everyone, I’m back with another laminated pastry, but this time with cruffins! So before I go assuming you know what I am on about, what are cruffins you might ask? Well, they are a mix of croissants and muffins, something dreamt up and brought to life by the famous Lune bakery here in Melbourne…
