Almost Famous Amos Cookies

I’m a Famous Amos cookie junkie. Especially the no-nut chocolate chip version. That way, I could enjoy the sweet, chocolatey, buttery goodness in every bite. While it is tempting to “up-size” the purchase (100 g free for every 300 g purchased), I was disciplined enough to buy no more than 100 g each time...

Frozen Watermelon Slushie

Watermelon is really one of my all-time favorite fruit. It’s juicy, sweet and so easy to eat. Tiger bought back a whole watermelon few days ago. After devouring ¾ of it, we are left with ¼ and it was then I decided to turn it into something else...

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Between Tiger (aka the love of life) and I, can you guess who the bigger sweet tooth in the family is? Judging from the way I phrased the question, quick witted readers would have gotten the answer right in a heartbeat. There’s no other way to describe except that I married an ice cream monster. A rather attractive one I must say. If the kitchen police were to raid our freezer, they would definitely find at least a tub (if not two) of frozen treat in there...

What better way than to translate it through desserts, right?...

Dangerously Dark Chocolate Muffin

If there’s one cake I would bake over and over again, it would be this Dangerously Dark Chocolate Muffin. You really can’t go wrong with chocolate, not to mention the number of chocoholics we have in this household...

Choux au Craquelin

What is Choux au Craquelin (pronounce shoo-o-krat-ker-lan)? They are baked mini cream puffs with a sweet, crackly, crunchy topping. Tiger (aka hubby) just could not get the pronunciation right and I've given up correcting him. At least I had a good laugh every time he tried...

Homemade Mandarin Orange Jam

What is your idea of a perfect breakfast? For me, that would be a nice, crispy slice of buttery toast, smothered with a thick layer of jam on top. So when Tiger (aka the hubby) asked me to make something with all the countless mandarin oranges we have lying around after Chinese New Year, this homemade mandarin orange jam seemed to be the logical choice!...
