Hi chocolate, it’s nice to matcha!

Did I really just write that title? I’m sorry. So I finally managed to track down some matcha powder some weeks ago, and unfortunately it’s not the sort I’m looking for. It seems like a really mild type of matcha. From what I’ve been seeing in photos, the concentrated one has a greener hue; and …

Learning about Basic Dumpling Wrappers

I’ve had the acclaimed Asian Dumplings book since forever, but I haven’t exactly made anything from it until recently, when I finally managed to pick out which recipe I wanted to start with. Every time I flip through this book, it gets more and more difficult for me to find just one recipe to do …

Bee Yin Low’s Amazing Honey Walnut Shrimp

By jove, she cooks! That’s the thought that enters my mind whenever I can tear myself away from the baking books long enough to cook something. To tell you honestly, I’m a bigger fan of eating “real” food compared to pastries and sweets, however for one reason or another, I like the act of baking …
