One more chewy cookie recipe to add to my growing list of chewies. This is an adaptation of my previous recipe - Soft baked Chewy Dark Chocolate Cookies Recipe. If you are fan of soft-baked cookies like me, you would know that Subway offers one of the yummiest freshly made ones in the market. But on days where you have this intense craving but is lazy to travel out, why not make some from scratch? Trust me, they are super easy and all you need is a big bowl and lots of chocolate - chocolate chips, chunks, bars, etc.

I am a huge fan of korean food and kimchi, being the centrepiece of korean cuisine is one of my favourites. Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables and are used in a variety of korean dishes, kimchi fried rice, kimchi soup, kimchi pancake, etc.

There are some pairings which can't go wrong - apple and cinnamon, chocolate and nuts, etc. Banana and walnut is one such combination. This cake is errs on the light side, drier compared to the typical moist banana cakes. It is also very easy to make - you need two big bowls, one for dry ingredients and one for wet. Mix both together and you are ready to bake.

It's hard to remain healthy when you like to bake sweets. I have to confess that thus-far, I have not attempted to make my bakes healthy apart from reduction in sugar levels or replacing some white sugar with brown sugar. Then again, that motivation comes from me not liking my sweets too sweet (pardon the irony). I am also guilty of "accidentally" slipping more butter into my scones... Ok, officially guilty as charged - I am no healthy nut.
I haven't been actively using my chiffon cake tin so it's time to make another chiffon cake - an Asian/Singaporean classic Pandan Chiffon Cake! I'm going in cut short my rambling here and go straight into the recipe.

Peanut butter is an item usually available at my home and it has attained the same status as butter and kaya (a local coconut spread). When I was younger, I remember having different variations of peanut butter, jars that came with chocolate or jam strips. I had a scale of favourite for these three flavours; chocolate > peanut butter > jam (too sweet). This prompted me to use only certain parts of the peanut butter jar depending on its flavour combi. You can imagine how messy the jar contents are once I'm done with them :p
