DIY Chinese Fortune Cookies

I’ve always wanted to try my hands on making fortune cookies and if you are looking at ways to use up your egg whites (thanks to the Chinese New Year season + cookies making period), you could definitely consider this DIY Chinese Fortune Cookies recipe. I believe the ingredients are easily available in your pantry and the only tricky part is molding the cookies into shape. But not to be too overly concern though – I became quite an expert after my third attempt!

Cassava Cookies

These Cassava Cookies are definitely one of the star Chinese New Year goodies from Bengawan Solo, a local bakery that all Singaporeans could relate to (I hope). Calories aside, these cookies have a crunchy exterior but melt-in-your-mouth texture which is uniquely addictive. Thanks to the addition of parmesan cheese powder, it lent a hint of savory taste which gave these cookies that unusual sweet + savory taste.

Daifuku Mochi

Making Daifuku Mochi has always been on my to-do list but somehow, I just did not get round to making it. Until now. I’ve read horror stories about how people burnt their fingers/hands while making these sweet, soft rice balls as you have to knead and roll them into shape while they are still hot. The rice dough will not stick when cooled. Maybe that was one (or the only) factor that was delaying my mochi-making journey...

Savory Crispy Cheese Cookies

This Christmas, I’ve decided to make these Savory Crispy Cheese Cookies over the usual sugar cookies. You’ll need only six ingredients to pull off this recipe. These cheese cookies have a crisp texture on the outside and crumbly on the inside. I love munching on them with a piping cup of hot tea. They are good, and I mean it...

Dark Chocolate Roulade with Roasted Strawberry Mousse

The name of the recipe post “Dark Chocolate Roulade with Roasted Strawberry Mousse” might sound all fancy and stuff but do not be intimated. It is really an easy-to make flour-less sponge chocolate roll filled with (lots of) light wondrous whipped cream and roasted strawberries. I decided to use a flour-less recipe for the cake as I prefer it to be lighter side and also for anyone who is looking for a gluten-free dessert recipe. Since Christmas is around the corner, this would make a wonderful dessert and centerpiece at lunch or dinner. A homemade cake just brings special joy to the holidays. The cake would not be completed without blanketing it with a layer of decadent dark chocolate fudge all over and to create that Yule Log effect, I used a fork to give it the signature peeling bark look...

Balsamic Roasted Strawberries

I can’t believe I’ve missed making these Balsamic Roasted Strawberries most part of my life. Well, as they say - better late than never (who is they anyway??).Roasting strawberries not only releases their natural sweetness, it also intensifies the flavor and create that syrupy jammy goodness. The acidity in the balsamic vinegar lends a slight tang to create an overall sweet and tangy mouthfeel. These balsamic roasted strawberries are perfect to go with your ice-cream, in your yogurt, on top of your breakfast pancakes and even in cakes...
