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 …

Matcha Financiers 1 - These Matcha Financiers will make teatime even classier

Sometimes, friends are the antidote to stress and fatigue. Last weekend I went out with two of my close high school friends and I realized that it has been AGES since I’ve done any of that. I’ve been so drained from work lately (how many times have I mentioned this?) and this little meet-up proved …

A Matcha Black Sesame Babka for the books

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I believe in the concept of “The One”. As for the process of discovering who that is, that’s where I’m left a bit clueless. Do you catch sight of each other in a crowded room and feel oddly drawn, your heart pounding faster as you near? Could it be …

I mentioned before that there has been this website mercilessly copying almost all my posts (including all my photos) since I started writing about my Japan trip last …

Learning to love the green tea-red bean combination

We’re taking a little break from the Japan travel blogs because I haven’t had the time to make the next posts in the series yet. But what else should I write about except this Japanese-inspired bread? This has been on my drafts folder for such a looooong long time. So long I don’t even want …

My not-so-green Green Tea Madeleines and my blogger blues

My posts have been rather disappointingly sparse since the year started. At first I had thought it was just because I was tired, or my grandmother’s death had thrown me off my equilibrium, but today I think I realized something different. Or maybe it’s something I’ve been silently aware of for a while; a ghost …
