CNY baking

I baked a fair bit of cookies this year for chinese new year. Lemon Cranberry, Chocolate swirls, meringue kisses and toffee walnut cookies. All mainly as gifts for friends and family.

Lemon Pistachio Cakes

Now that Marc is more independent, I have found myself baking a little bit more. I recently stumbled upon this recipe and since I had quite a lot of pistachios (from chinese new year hampers), I decided to give it a shot. The shelling of the pistachios were painful but the cake turned out fragrant and nutty. If had similar flavours to baclava, the middle eastern sweet. Will definitely make this again.

This update has been long outstanding simply because I have been busy. I have stopped baking for this reason! Marc was born on 28 November 2012. 

I stopped my full time office job to be a full time mum! No help, just me and bubs. I have every intention to start baking again when little Marc ( who is now 6 months ) becomes more independent. For now, am baking another type of cake..... diapercakes. So if you have the time, do hop over to my other blog and support me! I will be back!

Blueberry Cheesecake

This Blueberry Cheesecake turned out divine. I very seldom have 2 slices of the cakes I baked but this time, I relented. It was like a proper baked cheesecake although I still have got to master the non-cracking bit. I tend to think sometimes that cheesecakes with sourcream are a little too fussy to make, I like it that this was straightforward without sour cream and without sugar in the biscuit base. Definitely a keeper! A last baking stint till my baby comes....

Chocolate tarts

I had some craving for chocolate and I still have a load of chocolate sitting in my pantry, calling out to be melted and turned into something rich and luscious. Found the recipe for the chocolate filling online, was really happy with it as it exuded a deep chocolate flavour and the texture was something like a mousse. Love!

A slice of cake

It is so near Hari Raya and usually this time of the year, I'd be busy baking and packing, baking and packing and crashing out during the public holidays. This year I did not take orders but made a huge banana walnut cake as a treat for the office department in lieu of hari raya greeting cards.

Savoury Baking

Hubby was busy during the weekend at a conference so I decided to make a simple chicken pie to treat myself during lunch. Extremely simple this one and taste oh so good. Nothing beats a homemade pie with loads of carrots, potatoes, chicken and boiled eggs. Satisfied.......

A Break

I do apologise to the few people whom I know check this blog every now and then, for not updating it these couple of months. I am on a break for at least a year not because I am giving up the baking but because of personal reasons. So don't give up on me yet, I will try to put in some updates in the near future.
