Easy Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookies

“Teacher’s Day is approaching. Not sure what to prepare as a gift to your teachers or teachers of your loved ones?”

I thought something home made would be great and personal to show your appreciation to the teachers. I have an easy and quick cookies recipe here to share. The cookies were scrumptious and really easy to make. Success rate was almost 100%.

You don’t need to scout for expensive or rare ingredients for this goodness. What I used were simply the basics you probably already had in your kitchen pantry. Or, head down to any of the supermarket, you would be able to get them all at once. Bake by your own, and pack them in some nice and special gift boxes, remember it’s your effort counts the most. But of course, with your delicious cookies to impress! More

This dessert is super easy and quick to make. Even a beginner baker can do it. Super busy wit work and personal? This sweet treat probably takes you a good 30 minutes in total to complete.

Yes, this is a no-regret recipe for an impressive dessert. Not only does it look nice and romantic, its taste is irreplaceable and remarkably luscious. More

Hidden Heart Chocolate Cake

“My heart hides, but my love doesn’t…”

Saw some posts about this hidden heart cake for Valentine’s Day, and I couldn’t stop myself for making one in this sweet festive day. It’s not difficult to bake this, but takes long time to assemble the whole thing. It took me 3 hrs for the whole process.

Hard effort paid off in the end. It was indeed romantic to be able to eat this ‘sweet hidden heart’ with the one you loved. Real romantic and heart warming. More

Delicious Flourless Nutella Cake

“3 ingredients flour-less cake in just 30 minutes time. Yes, it’s really just 3 ingredients!”

I did not create this cake, but adapted by referring to many recipes online to conclude with the most sensible combinations and methods to do this cake.

It was very delicious. If you worry that this flourless cake might taste just too chocolaty and creamy as though eating just the chocolate paste by its own, don’t be. This Nutella cake resembles very much like a cake made with flour. Credit goes to the egg whites which made the cake soft, moist and very much like a floured cake. More

Handmade Chocolate Ice Cream

“Easy, breezy, handmade ice cream.”

There are many ways to hand make this ice cream, but below would be the easiest way to do. Learnt this from a TVB cooking show hosted by Ms Maria Cordero (Fat Ma), in her latest cooking show, Good Cheap Eat 2 (食平DD), where she handmade Tiramisu ice cream as her dessert of the day. I am yet to replicate her Tiramisu ice cream, but adapted it to chocolate flavor, as requested by my dad who was curious and skeptical about making a delicious ice cream at home without a need of having an ice cream make or sort of special equipment… :D

Yes. No complication and almost 0% failure. What you need is just a hand mixer or whisk. If you are having a strong arm to be able to whisk the cream till simply thicken, that’s enough, in fact. (That was how I did my ice cream at my dad’s home the other day since my parents do not keep a whisk at home!) Haha..You will be rewarded with a creamy, smooth and store-bought liked ice cream at home. More

Heavenly Rich Chocolate Christmas Log Cake (Express version)


Express version for last minute planning!

Christmas is just around the corner! This probably what you are hearing the most recently. I believed everybody enjoys Christmas festive and its wonderful feeling of the season. What have you prepared for your Merry Christmas, then?

I am not a Christian in religion, but I do enjoy celebrating Christmas, the festive of joy….. Yes. Nothing elaborate in my celebration though. I liked the feeling of having my once-a-year signature Christmas chicken chop dish together with my family. And of course, a Christmas log cake. More

Tell Me the 5 Reasons to Drink MILO Every day

“Get the best start to your day with MILO!”

Following my mum’s footstep,  I have been religiously drinking MILO since I was a little. In fact, I drink MILO almost every meal! Regardless of where we dine – coffee shop, restaurant, cafeteria, McDonald’s and even in the school canteen during recess – I would surely order herself a cup of MILO to go with my meals.

I also love having it for breakfast (which has been made compulsory by mum). Yes, no skipping of breakfast is allowed in the house, and I would be happy to have a cup of MILO to go along with whatever is having for breakfast. More

Chocolate Coffee Birthday Cake (with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting)

“Simple Birthday Cake”

Papa’s birthday, and he doesn’t like to celebrate elaborately. So, nothing huge, seriously, just a (western) home-baked, and (Chinese) home-cooked ‘Mee Sua’ dinner, yesterday. He might not like the sweet effort, but he would at least appreciate the mee sua (Chinese thin strands wheat flour vermicelli) soup with chicken drumstick and 2 red hard-boiled eggs, a traditional Chinese ritualized birthday meal.
