Bread Maker Muah Chee (Panasonic Bread Maker & Singapore Blog Awards

Nope, I did not accidentally post something that’s not made in the Panasonic bread maker for the competition.

Believe it or not, this muah chee (just not the peanut portion), was made in the Panasonic bread maker.

Rotiboy Loaf (Panasonic Bread Maker & Singapore Blog Awards!)

Aren't we all such busy people? When one reaches home after the sun sets and leaves before it rises, the possibility of freshly baked bread for breakfast everyday is almost nil. There’s simply no time! I’ll admit, even I have succumbed to the laziness – just look at when my last bread post was *whispers 2013*. I miss awfully the days of secondary school where I actually had the time to make bread for my family regularly.

It’s not unknown that bread can take a lot of time. Cakes take about 2 hours, from start to finish, and about 40 minutes of that time is baking. Cookies take about an hour at the most. Bread, on the other hand, takes about 4-5 hours each time. Granted, about 2 hours is resting time, another half an hour, baking time. But then, who has time for kneading, shaping and all the other processes that bread making requires.

That’s one of the reasons I have not avoided making the nostalgic rotiboy for so long.

Blueberry Macarons & being inspired by CTs

Hi everyone! Before I get to the main post, just a little something :)

I'm one of the finalists for the Singapore Blog Awards! Do support me by voting for me here. You can vote everyday and nope, you don't have to be Singaporean. 

Much love,

Once in very long while, I’m inspired by something extremely unexpected.  I’ll just go ahead and admit that this is the FIRST time I’ve been inspired to bake anything by an exam.

It’s a rather funny story actually…

Cinnamon Blueberry Ice Cream & impulsive buying

I have to tell everyone a thing or two about impulsive buying. I’m sure most of us have this problem. You know, when you walk into the clothing store and see something on 50%, or maybe 30 or 15, off. You think ‘oh what a great deal’, ‘it’s so cheap’ and buy it without thinking about whether or not you’re going to wear it often.

Or perhaps it’s the pretty notebook in the bookstore. Or a cookbook. Maybe it’s a home appliance you have no need for.

Maybe, just maybe, it’s the four boxes of blueberries you found for ‘BUY 1, GET 3 FREE’ in one supermarket and just below $3 in another.

Matcha White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Scroll down to the bottom for the recipe: Matcha White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Of Love, Life and Death

Perhaps the title wasn’t quite appropriate. It should just be Of Living, because living encompasses all of those.

Letting go...

It’s been quite some time – a good two weeks. Hopefully you all have not forgotten me.

TJ's Brownies :)

Oh, you know how much I worship brownies. My quest for the ultimate brownies… It hasn’t ended. I don’t think it ever will.

The ultimate brownie: an elusive theory, a far off dream. To be honest, the ultimate brownies (the perfect brownies, whatever you prefer to call them) are very subjective. Some people prefer the crackly crust (I’m all for them xD), some people don’t. Some people love them fudgy and soft. Some prefer them chewier.  Some people are just weird and like them cakey. I’m sorry, we just can’t be friends if you’re one of them.

Gingerbread Black Tea Panna Cotta

My intention was to post a honey pear cake that was due months ago, but then I realized that the last 3 posts were cakes. So yet another cake might not be so appealing to you.

How that cake got pushed so far back (and with this post, even further back), has very valid reasons – reasons that, likely, would appeal to all you readers out there. You see, before I could post the honey pear cake, I made more stuff that I just had to let you guys know about. Like the red velvet cheesecake cake. Like that blackberry cheesecake. Like those lemon blueberry cookies.

Like this gingerbread black tea panna cotta.

warm fuzzy awkward birthdays

Birthdays come once a year for each person. Once a year, this day is all about you. Once a year, you get presents without having to give presents. Once a year, once a year. You’d think their rarity makes them so precious, but of course, there are people who do not like birthdays, whether their own or others’.

I’ll have to admit, I’m on that side of the fence: not really liking birthdays.

They’re awkward, especially when people sing the birthday song. They’re awkward, when people give you gifts and you don’t really know what to say except for a small thank you. They’re awkward, when people want to give you a hug and you feel obliged to accept it.

But then they’re also really warm and fuzzy, when you receive gifts or cards that have had so much thought put into them.

This year, I just had to put away my general dislike for my birthday. It was quite amazing this year. Of course, it was still awkward – I’m an awkward person – when I got an awkward gift and when they sang the birthday song. But for the first time in my 17 years of life, my birthday cake was homemade. Or maybe I should say, birthday cakes.
