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…

Nama Chocolate – 70% Dark and Matcha | 生チョコレート

Given that Father’s day is around the corner (this weekend to be precise) in certain parts of the world, I thought a box of chocolate in 2 styles would work well as a treat. My dad loves chocolate and alcohol and thinking of that I felt there would be no gift more perfect than this….

Mini Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies – Famous Amos Style

Like many, one of my earliest childhood association with chocolate chip cookies stems from the sweet scent of caramelised cookies that wafts into your nose, surrounding you in an almost intoxicating scent, calling out to you as you walk through the busy shopping centres. Irresistible and hypnotic. Before you know it, you’ve found yourself trying…

Blackout Brownies – Two ways – Cakey and Fudgey

Disclaimer: Given I have never tried the bakery brownies that these were inspired by before, I can’t claim how similar or dissimilar my recipe is. What I can say is I and my taste testers (who have tried said bakery brownies before) enjoyed both brownies that I’ve made.☺️ Now that I have covered that bit,…

How to make Roti Prata at home

This is one of my favourite breakfast/lunch/dinner flat breads ever. I know this flatbread has many different names with slight variations depending on where you are from. I come from Singapore and so this is known as roti prata to me. 🙂 I’ve always found it fun to make prata at home but never got…

Pain Au Chocolat | Chocolate Croissant | Chocolatine Recipe

Given that many of us have found ourselves suddenly home bound due to Covid, it seems like there’s no perfect time like the present to work on that checklist of things we have always wanted to bake but never got around to doing so. And in this instance, the world seems to be revolving around…

Soft Indulgent Brownie Cookie

With the world feeling like quite an unknown place these days, I have turned to chocolate as my comfort medium. I would have never imagined a time where toilet rolls are so sought after that they would fly off the shelves quicker than fresh food would. If we were to jump back in time to…

Mr. Cheesecake Cheesecake | ミスターチーズケーキ Recipe

In the midst of a global pandemic with countries on lock down, food flying off the supermarket shelves (let’s not forget the toilet paper situation here in Australia), self imposed restraints and confinement that many are experiencing. I find myself seeking comfort in bringing part of the outside world into my kitchen given the current…
