I love banana bread and have tried different recipes and variations but have to say this is my favourite. I have made a healthier version with coconut oil and gluten free flour (I am not intolerant but sensitive). I think the butter and flour type makes a big difference. Ingredients: 3-4 very ripe bananas, peeled 1/3 […]

I didn’t feel like having bacon in my scones and soaking in the animal fat, so I doubled the cheese in this earlier recipe. This yielded 25 scones that were moist and dense. It’s similar to a Bacon Cheddar Scones recipe I posted, with some modifications.   I am back practising how to take better photos […]

Baking is really not my forte because of my lack of precision and I have always relied on boxed brownie mix, before stumbling upon this adapted recipe and with trial and error from this success flourless chocolate cake recipe I’ve made several times. I started to bake a little more so I could have subjects […]

smitten kitchen lazy pizza dough recipe

I have been practising for quite a few bakes now and have finally found the right footwork on baking a pizza in our very basic oven, well the husband calls it more than a grill than an oven with a maximum temperature of 230ºC, so we’ll never get the right consistency of a Napolitana style […]

flourless chocolate cake wolfgang puck recipe

I’ve done this a few times, but I think I have finally found the winning formula. This is based on Wolfgang Puck’s favourite chocolate cake recipe. I am still working on my photography classes and food styling, and couldn’t quite decide on which shot was better. What do you think? I still have to learn how […]

This turned out really yum and not too sweet – I didn’t add any additional sugar, just a table spoon of honey and used a bunch of 6 ripe bananas instead of 4, hoping the natural sugars would make up for it. Chef said it wasn’t sweet at all, but was aromatic. It was perfect […]


This is a recipe from the Malay grandma of a my good friend R. Epok Epok is the malay name for curry puffs and they are sold in most hawker centres and mom and pop shops. My fillings turned out great and tasty,but I failed miserably at having a lovely crust. I also attempted to […]

Here’s an adapted Buttermilk scones recipe from the BBC Cakes and Bake 101 recipe book.We made all 3 batches of them and they turned out pretty awesome! They didn’t taste as good the next day though, so I’ve upped the butter portion as well as the cheese and bacon – you can never have enough […]


The China Club is an exclusive recreational club for the elite who are given memberships by invitation only (or so I was told). Duncan, a fellow foodie and member of the prestigious club took me there for lunch one day and it was a very pleasant experience. The food was good, but not mind-blowing. I […]
