Wasabi Almonds

Just one more piece… That seems to be what I constantly find myself repeating in my head like a mantra that just won’t loosen it’s grip on my mind until the whole bag is gone. What am I referring to you ask? Well, these almonds of course. Toasted, sweet, salty and slightly spicy. As much…

Strawberry Milk

On my recent trip to Japan, I was obsessed with strawberry milk. Obsessed. Don’t ask me why, but I just wanted to have strawberry milk everyday, sometimes even multiple times a day. So it’s only natural that I wrote a strawberry milk recipe for this blog. I am not sure if you are like me,…

Houjicha Apple Cake

I’ve mentioned it many times before, but apples are probably the most comforting fruit around. Easily accessible, versatile, there’s rarely ever a waiting game to play. No worrying about that perfect timing to slice into an apple the way you would an avocado, or lie around waiting for it to ripen before it’s perfect for…

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…

Chocolate Chip Scones + A Memory of Breakfast in Japan

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. Wait, let me clarify the last…

The Banana Bread

Banana bread just like the perfect chocolate cake or chocolate chip cookie is one that is so dependent on personal preference that it’s almost controversial to say you’ve got the “perfect” banana bread recipe. Everyone has an idea in their head of what a great banana bread should be. Banana bread is one of those…

Old School Butter Cake and A Nationโ€™s Birthday

“Few thousand miles and an ocean away But I see the sunrise, oh, just like the other day Picture your eyes as I fall asleep Tell myself it’s alright, oh oh, as the tears roll by” – Oceans Away by ARIZONA There’s nothing like your phone buzzing away with constant reminders of friends and family…

Chocolate Mint Brownie + A small request

It’s been weeks since I promised to post this recipe. My mom flew from Singapore for a visit, Melbourne has enjoyed some hail storm warnings and it’s suddenly that time of the year again where the much coveted Saveur Blog Award nominations have open. And so I have a small request to make for you,…
