Digging out these Baked Lemon Poppyseed Doughnuts from my archives

I once had this crazy doughnut phase awhile back wherein I made more doughnuts than I dared count. Looking through my blog’s archives it seems I have managed to write about all of them doughnuts save for two: this Baked Lemon Poppyseed Doughnuts recipe, and an experiment on No-Knead Beignet which I even shot a …

Epic Cornmeal Churros with Chocolate Dip on my mind

I mentioned in my Universal Studios Japan travel diary that I dragged my brothers and cousin around the them park as I shot some footage for my travel video. They were surprisingly very patient and would just stand by quietly every time I’d suddenly stop and got the shot that I wanted, which doesn’t always …

The Buchi (麻糰): A Chinese restaurant favourite with many names

After writing about a Chinese restaurant in my previous post, I got in the mood to talking about a dessert that’s often served in local Chinese restaurants after a heavy multi-course meal. No, we’re not talking about Mango Sago, though that’s pretty much a staple too. I’m actually talking about the Buchi, or the Fried …

My first two recipes using my new tiny doughnut pan

An attempt to copy McDonald’s Fried Apple Pie

I don’t have much of a relationship with fast food to speak of, simply because it hasn’t been a part of my diet in the last 5 years. I’ll eat fast food when I’m traveling in a foreign place and I’m too hungry to seek out a restaurant, or when I absolutely have no choice. …

The little things that bring out the big smiles

There is absolutely nothing wrong with aspiring to big things. However I know some people who are so attached to the idea of impressive, expensive things that anything less brings them great displeasure. They seem convinced that happiness will only come with the flashy and suddenly they label everything else as unworthy. I won’t be …

Driving slow on Sunday mornings

I needed to borrow a line from Maroon 5 because it perfectly describes the Sundays I’ve been spending this last month and a half. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’re probably sick of hearing me complain about how tired I’ve been recently. Sorry, guys. There just have been weeks when I feel …
