A farewell to summer, but never to ice cream

The weather has been crazy lately; changing from a sweltering summer heat to gloomy and rainy in a span of mere hours, and then back again. After an angry bout of rain, a blinding sort of sunlight beams itself down and soon enough the ground is dry and all signs of storm in the previous …

Nestle’s #Drumstickdares + a recipe for yummy Rum Raisin Ice Cream

Nestle’s ice cream department seems to be on a roll lately. After coming up with their Temptations Flavours of the World collection, (French Salted Caramel, I love you!) this time they are presenting us with something equally flavour-packed but a bit more handy.

My first candied bacon creation

I find this whole candied bacon phenomenon quite fascinating. I think it’s rather nice that people are beginning to become more playful with their palate, opting for combinations of flavours instead of just straight sweet, or straight salty or spicy or sour. Sometimes it really pays to be a bit more adventurous with the food …

Inspired by Nestle Temptations Dutch Speculoos Ice Cream

The other day, some folks from Nestle sent me their new Nestle Temptations Flavours of the World Dutch Speculoos ice cream. A mouthful, I know, but the only three words you really have to remember are ‘Nestle’ and ‘Dutch Speculoos’. And yes, it is as good as it sounds. The whole speculoos cookie butter craze …

Some much needed zen and ice cream

I think I’m beginning to fall hard for matcha. I went on a holiday to Hong Kong recently and I managed to get a taste of various matcha-flavoured food throughout. With the Matcha Espressos and Matcha Panna Cottas I enjoyed, it’s safe to say that Hong Kong has discovered the magic of this wonderful green …

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?

Wait, is that national or international? For a food blogger I am comically ignorant about these things. Typically I don’t tend to bandwagon on food holidays, but when it’s for something I really like, I simply can’t let it slide. Ice cream– probably the only sweet dessert I can inhale without a second thought. I …

Cookies and Cream and Lethargy

I am supposed to be writing to you right now about good things, and good things only. And why not, seeing as it is my birthday today. I was supposed to make my cake yesterday actually; supposed to relish my first baking project for the year… But I make too many suppositions, it seems. I …
