Bacon Onion Quiche Recipe

It was Sunday brunch and I wanted to make something beyond the usual scrambled eggs or pancakes. I wanted something savoury, easy and quick. That's when I remember an easy Cowboy Quiche recipe from Zoe, Bake for Happy Kids.

"I have been using a fuss-free and fail-proof quiche recipe which is 200ml cream + 3 eggs + 1 cup cheese for a deep 23 cm pie dish"

THIS is exactly what I need. Fuss-free, fail-proof. The most comforting words to one who has never baked a quiche before. 

The results?... Drool-worthy.

Gnocchi Recipe

Gnocchi (pronouced as "no-kee") are thick, soft dumplings made from potato, flour and egg. Its a versatile Italian dish which you can customise to your liking. Think of them as pasta and coat them in your favourite sauces - tomato, pesto, etc. However, my all time fav has to be still good old cream and cheese.

Banana Almond Loaf Recipe

I hardly use my loaf pan because I don't make bread often. On one of these rare occasions, I decide to use it, I don't make bread. I made a loaf cake instead - Banana Almond Loaf.

Strawberry Jellyhearts Cheesecake Recipe

I'm sure we all love our strawberries, jellies and cheesecake. But how do they taste when used together in the same dish...? Awesome.

Patterned Swiss Roll (Giraffe print) Recipe

It was a lazy Saturday and I wanted to make a simple baked treat which my family will enjoy. This means no fancy layered cakes or desserts - just plain old-style cakes using the baking basics (eggs, flour, oil, milk, etc.). I settled on a Swiss Roll but gave it a twist to make it look more fancy.

Originally, this pattern was supposed to be inspired by cows.

But it clearly became something else.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Buns Recipe

I don't make bread often. I like and tend to stick with quick, fuss free recipes - chiffon cakes, cupcakes, muffins, tarts. But on one of those rare occasions, I make bread and today, I present to you Cranberry Cream Cheese Buns.

My bread family all "dressed up"

Chocolate Mousse Recipe

There are times where we just want fuss-free desserts which are easy and delicious. This means desserts which require ingredients you can get readily in supermarkets or use whatever is available in your pantry. This is one such recipe - (almost instant) Chocolate Mousse.

Ignore the typo in the pic - I can't spell for my life

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes Recipe

Weekends are great times for brunch and my pancakes craving kicked in again. Last time round, I paired my pancakes with lemon curd, left-over from my lemon curd tart. This time round, I had decided to pair my pancakes with sautéed apples with cinnamon.

Japanese Chestnut Cake (Mont Blanc) Recipe

Yes, Mont Blanc is a luxury brand and no, I am not referring to that. Today's post is on a less-known cake but utterly delicious - Mont Blanc.

Mont Blanc is a dessert of puréed, sweetened chestnuts and whipped cream. This name is derived from the mountain, Mont Blanc, meaning "White Mountain". This dessert resembles a snow-capped mountain, which explains the squiggly lines on top the cake (and please don't tell me they look like worms or Medusa's hair...)

Fruit Tart Recipe

Fruit tarts are easy to put together and one of the healthier desserts. You can use any seasonal fruit available and berries are often used, strawberries, blueberries, etc. Colourful fruits are packed with vitamins and they brighten up the whole tart. Not only is a fruit tart good to look at, it is also delicious - buttery tart crust paired with sweet custard and many pieces of layered fruit.

Kimchi Pancake Recipe

If you are looking for a fuss-free meal, kimchi pancake is a quick fix. All you need is kimchi, flour, water.

Bibimbap (Korean mixed rice with vegetables) Recipe

Another dish I like to order at korean restuarants is Bibimbap (mixed rice with vegetables).

Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables, meat and gochujang (hot pepper/chilli paste). I love it with a fried sunny-side up egg and mixing everything together. It may look a little messy but the collision of the various tastes go surprisingly well together.
