A little taste of the South with these Texas-Style BBQ Cheeseburgers

Texas BBQ Cheeseburgers 1 - A little taste of the South with these Texas-Style BBQ Cheeseburgers

Writing about the food spots in my San Francisco throwback has reminded me of a couple of my USA-related foodie dreams: first, going on a food trip in New Orleans; and then there’s getting a taste of authentic Texas BBQ. It’s really hard to fit a trip to America without having to go on an …

A Sweet Cereal Milk Ice Cream to bring you back to your childhood

Cereal Milk Ice Cream 1 - A Sweet Cereal Milk Ice Cream to bring you back to your childhood

It’s been a while since we’ve had cereal of a colorful nature in our house. It’s interesting how as kids we tend to respond to colorful sweet treats, but then most of us sort of deviate from it as we grow older. (Mostly because we realize it’s all sugar haha!) But I must not be …

These Banana Bread Biscotti with Chocolate are the most epic biscotti ever!

Banana Bread Biscotti 1 - These Banana Bread Biscotti with Chocolate are the most epic biscotti ever!

Before I decided to make my own blog, I was an avid follower of several food blogs. Let’s call them my major inspirations for finally diving into food blogging myself. I was inspired by their wit and creativity when it came to food and how they presented it to the world. One of my favorites …

Vietnamese Banana Cake + Hanoi memories in a video

Vietnamese Banana Cake

Despite my delight in banh mi and pho, I realized I actually don’t know a thing about Vietnamese desserts. Vietnamese coffee is of course not counted in this category! In any case, that was the beginning of my search for a Vietnamese dessert recipe to try, and I came across this rather simple version of …

Black Sesame Matcha Brioche to feed my mini obsession

Black Sesame & Matcha Brioche

After writing about the Matcha Black Sesame Babkas I tried the other time, I got hooked. I opened my recipe compendium (that’s the only apt word for the 4,500+ recipes I’ve collected over the years) and started looking through anything with matcha and black sesame in it, not resting until I found this brioche. If …

Espresso Coffeecake with chocolate and cacao nibs + a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Giveaway

Espresso Coffeecake 1

The other day saw one of the moodiest days I’ve had since the year started; so much so that I felt like I was about to chew some heads off at work. I was feeling particularly drained that day and having to deal with people seemed like such a chore. I sorely needed to get …

My first time meeting the Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars

Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars 1 - My first time meeting the Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars

Raise your hand if you think the name of these Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars are the cutest ever! That name was actually the draw of this recipe, considering I’ve never heard of such a thing before.

How to make Salted Egg Lava Buns at home

Salted Egg Lava Buns Recipe

I can’t even properly express how excited I am to share this recipe for Salted Egg Lava Buns with you all! After a few frustrating tries, you’d think I’d have developed a sort of “allergy” when it came to testing recipes for this particular bun already. Well this is one of those times when my …
