This Chocolate & Coffee Cheesecake is insanely good

It’s been a while since I marked this Chocolate & Coffee Cheesecake from Yummy Mag, but oddly enough I never got around to making it until now. It wasn’t a question of doubting whether it was going to turn out well that led me to drag this on. I mean, it’s my favourite local food …

Striking up a new love affair with this Sweet Potato Gnocchi Recipe

I’ve been bothering my friends a lot about my gnocchi craving. I haven’t been able to eat anything to satisfy it! I’m not quite sure which local Italian restaurant serves good gnocchi around here, but writing my New York Travel Diaries has made me regret so much that I didn’t stop to eat at Little …

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.

A quick Chocolate Souffle Recipe made even easier with KitchenAid [VIDEO]

Chocolate Souffle

When people say soufflé– wearing their best French accents of course– it conjures up images of class, luxury, and indulgence. The name of the dessert is based on the French verb souffler (to breathe), because of its beautiful puffy crown and airy as cloud center. Eating it is such a pleasurable experience that it’s no …

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 …

My favourite Sesame Soba topped with sweet-spicy salmon

When it comes to food, there are few things I love more than Asian noodles. It doesn’t matter which country in Asia it’s from or whether there’s soup or not– if it’s a noodle dish I’ll eat it. (For pasta I’m a little pickier since I don’t generally eat white sauce, but I also adore …
