Super crunchy chocolate chip cookies with a dash of cocoa powder and coffee for a even yummier treat! It comes quite close to Famous Amos cookies, though not entirely the same. This is a remake of a recipe that I have tried 5 years ago!
Simple, homemade muffins loaded with chocolate chips, which are quick to whip up for afternoon tea. All time kids’ favourite! This muffin recipe uses creaming of butter and sugar – which results in muffins with more bite! Butter-based muffins, cupcakes and cakes often carries a tighter crumb and are richer in texture, which is great for butter cake lovers!
Buttermilk is a kind of cultured milk, somewhat similar to yogurt.It is a richer liquid, compared to whole milk.
Thus it imparts a richer / moister texture to baked goods which use buttermilk, and at the same time adding a slight tang to the taste.
However, most of the time, the recipes will not be using the entire carton of buttermilk, and you may find it a waste to just purchase a carton of it, to only use half the amount.

This is a slow simmered soup to bring out the richness and goodness of the ingredients. Many times, this simple lotus root soup is the childhood comfort food of many.

An enjoyable everyday bread, made using egg whites and yogurt as part of the main ingredients.This is a good recipe for soft bread if you have leftover or extra egg whites to be used.
These are cute deco piggie tang yuan, featured on Mediacorp’s Channel 8 News for Yuan Xiao Jie. This is a new recipe with super Q Q chewy dumpling skin. We really enjoy the dumpling skin, which tastes pretty much like mochi, so I am using a higher proportion of the skin. You can also refer to an easier recipe I have used previously, and adjust the proportion accordingly.
This cranberries apricot loaf cake recipe is similar to a pound cake recipe, just that there is an additional egg yolk added.
For this particular recipe, the cake has soft and fine crumbs, which we really enjoyed. I reduced a little sugar in this cake, and replaced with some milk. On the overall, the dried fruits and syrup also contributed to the sweetness of the cake, which I find is okay for my taste buds.
Green bean soup is a type of Chinese dessert (Tong Sui / 糖水). I love this simple dessert since I was a child, and I am so glad that it’s really easy to cook this!
This dessert is usually prepared when the weather is hot here in Singapore, as it is said to be “cooling” and able to “dispel heatiness” in our bodies. I remembered there was a year when the haze was really bad, and the green beans were wiped out on the grocery shelves!
This dessert can be taken hot or chilled – I particularly love eating this chilled on a hot day!
These osmanthus snowskin mooncakes was one of my old posts in 2014! Decided to take new photos and update the recipe. I always look forward to Mid-Autumn Festival because I really love seeing the pretty mooncakes on sale and tasting them. Making mooncakes is also quite a fun thing to do, especially the snowskin ones – and we don’t even need to bake! So, it’s great to try this out if you are a beginner baker! 🙂
