Delectable, crumbly and buttery pineapple tarts – a must-have Chinese New Year goodie! HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! 🙂 I only managed to make some pineapple tarts on the CNY eve this year for my kids, as work has been really busy. So I re-did this recipe that I have tried a few years ago.
Light and mildly sweet muffins, packed with dried cranberries and candied orange peel, these muffins are great for Christmas morning!
Why would this be called Christmas Morning Muffins? I realised that it might be because they are really light with tender crumbs, and mildly sweetened, that allows you to eat more during lunch and dinner on Christmas Day (lol!).
It is a one-bowl mix recipe, so it’s also quite convenient to whip up in the morning. Though I find the taste of the muffins to be nicer on the next day, after the flavors managed to develop overnight.
These chocolate mint marshmallow cookies are soft cookies with chewy centres and crispy outside. Great treat for the holiday! 🙂
Do you love chocolate, mint and marshmallow flavors during Christmas season? I especially love these flavors during the colder weather! If you’re like me, you’d love these gooey cookies! Sometimes I love to snack on these for breakfast (lol) when I am feeling stressed at work!
Cute little seal deco tang yuan with natural food coloring. With soft and chewy glutinous rice skin and sweet peanut filling, these little dumpling balls are delightful for dessert!
Just a short post to record these tang yuan! Made them yesterday on the Winter Solstice day for the kids to eat, before Mummy me scooted off to JJ Lin’s concert :p
Simple to make tang yuan! Featuring soft and QQ tang yuan dough and homemade lava peanut filling! This time, I also serve it in a simple osmanthus sugar syrup, which has a fruity peach scent!
These are giant, soft cranberry biscuits, which texture and taste resembles a fluffy scone. It’s also a quick snack or breakfast item for my kids! This biscuit / soft cookie is easy to make! Simply add the ingredients together into a dough, and then bake it! Since there is no butter used, we do not need to cream butter together with sugar. So I find this quite easy and time saving!
I like to make this when we need a quick snack, or if I don’t have time to prepare for breakfast the next day. This biscuit is quite light and fluffy, so it goes quite well for breakfast!
A nourishing Chinese slow simmered soup which aids in “cooling” the body. Cook it overnight in thermal pot for a richly flavored and thick soup. Find out how to do it in the post here!
Are you a beginner in baking, looking to try out recipes to hone your baking skills?
I find the best way to pick up baking skills is to try the basic recipes to gather some confidence!
Often, we can find recipes with slightly complex steps, or with a lot of different ingredients (which you may not have in your pantry if you don’t bake all the time). I will be adding on to my Baking Basics series with a few basic recipes that uses simple ingredients and are quick to make.
This is a loaf of basic pound cake with vanilla flavor, brushed with some lemon syrup. Great cake recipe to start for baking beginners!
I am a big fan of Japanese confectioneries, even before I had kids. So naturally my choice of food and snacks influenced my kids too haha!
The kiddos love those Japanese cookies that we see frequently in supermarkets. These days as I have to work, and have lesser time cooking and baking at home, we had to turn to store bought cookies for their snack fix sometimes.
I wonder if you are familiar with Morinaga Moonlight Cookies? These sweet, small cookies are really buttery and creamy in taste! While I wouldn’t say that these cookies are exact replicate of Morinaga Moonlight Cookies, I thought that these cookies indeed has a taste of nostalgia!
