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 …

A happy birthday Matcha Green Tea Souffle Recipe

Matcha Souffle 1 - A happy birthday Matcha Green Tea Souffle Recipe

It’s my birthday in a few days and oddly enough I feel just a bit less ambivalent about it compared to the last few years. I don’t tend to make a big deal out of stuff like this, but because it’s going to be my first year post quarter-life it seemed appropriate to write something. …

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 …

Let’s make Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies for a change!

Every time I’m writing about choco chip cookies it feels like déjà vu. I mean, how many versions have I made really? Each one of them has been scrumptious and addictive though, and this one is no different. I think I’ve pretty much figured out, just from reading a recipe, whether or not a choco …

These Matcha Cupcakes with Red Bean Frosting sum up my sweet love [VIDEO]

So some of you might be wondering why I haven’t been posting as regularly lately, and to be honest I have been feeling really out of it. 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 …

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 …

Matcha Macarons with Red Bean Filling + My Japan Travel Video!

21061601006 2f97085cf9 h 1 - Matcha Macarons with Red Bean Filling + My Japan Travel Video!

I feel like it’s been forever since I posted an actual recipe on this blog. My backlogs are officially out of control because I’ve been cooking and baking a lot but not posting too much recipes. But since my most recent series of travel diaries are officially done-ish, I think we can go back to …
