Let’s construct a Japanese-style Honey Brick Toast Box

Toast Box 1 - Let's construct a Japanese-style Honey Brick Toast Box

A few weeks ago I wrote about Hokkaido’s sublimely soft Milk Bread, but that loaf of bread isn’t just good for sandwiches and morning toast. It’s also rather perfect for the Japanese Brick Toast. Have you ever heard of a Brick Toast, aka a Japanese Toast Box? It’s this really neat invention where a super …

Choco PButter Cup Ice Cream 2 - Dreaming with a side of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup ice cream

Sometimes I feel like there’s nothing quite like a weather spell to make your mind wander. When it’s too cold you dream of a nice cosy setting; where you’re all bundled up in puffy knitwear before a crackling fireplace, with some hot cinnamon-spiced chocolate in hand. Or in your mind’s eye you’re frolicking on the …

When the situation calls for an Earl Grey Ice Cream Recipe

One of the things that stuck to me the most during my last visit to Tokyo DisneySea was the shell-shaped Sea Salt Ice Cream. I don’t know if you saw it on the Tokyo DisneySea video I made, but my brother bought one to try and we both agreed it reminded us a lot of …

Bacon and Sweet Corn Ice Cream sandwiches anyone?

The most common question I get from all the aunties and uncles who are aware that I blog about recipes: ‘When are you opening a bakeshop?’ It’s not that I’ve never asked myself the same. Believe me when I say I pondered this question at great length especially when my blog began hitting its groove …

This ice cream is so decadent it should be illegal

Sometimes ideas start out just like that– ideas. It isn’t until you act on it and find a way to execute it that it becomes a reality. Cravings are the same way. They bloom in your mind and don’t go away for a fair amount of time until you acknowledge them. But unlike cravings, ideas …

Oxymoron ice pops + Sipper Ice Pop Maker review

This post was supposed to come out ages ago, but in the last few days I have been so unbelievably exhausted from being overworked at my day-job that I just started dozing off every time I sat down to prepare this post. I’m too tired to even rant about it, and since I make it a rule not to think …

The charms of a garden-grown ice cream

Let me tell you a little story I was supposed to tell you with a ton of pictures, which as I mentioned in two posts already, got corrupted when my memory card failed me. Anyway, this story is all about the first time ever I bought myself a bag of pine nuts. (Bag? Psssh! What …
