Blueberry Yogurt Corn Muffins

Blueberry Yogurt Corn Muffins

This is one of the healthiest things I’ve ever tried baking. It has greek  yogurt, cornmeal, blueberries, wholewheat flour and..well, some sugar- for happiness, you know. ü  To be honest, I didn’t like them, I had a hard time finishing one muffin; fortunately though, my family liked it especially my daughter whom I made these […]

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bars

This is a very simple cheesecake bar, I use only 1 block of cream cheese for the filling. I think that this is enough to satisfy my craving for cheesecake without overwhelming myself. I find that the proportion of crust to filling is just right for this cheesecake bars;  it taste rich and the addition […]

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

My photo may not be Pinterest-worthy but those chocolate chip cookies that you see there are super yummy. I promise. I should have taken pictures while they’re still  warm-while the chocolate chips are slightly melted; oh, but we cannot wait to eat them.  These cookies are so good,  they’re soft and chewy with a hint […]

Homemade Vanilla Extract

A friend (Hi, Pam! ü) gave me some vanilla beans many months back. I was only able to open it last month as I was planning to make vanilla bean cupcakes but that did not happen for some reason. I thought I’d make a batch of vanilla extract first after seeing it somewhere and finding […]

Red Velvet Rose Cake

Red Velvet Rose Cake

You’ve probably seen this cake around the web, the rose cake..it’s pretty isn’t it? Of course I have to make it too cause I just  love dainty, pretty, and swirly cakes!  I was thinking of making  chocolate cake at first because it’s my favorite but I’m not sure my whipped chocolate ganache will hold the […]

Spider Cake

Spider Cake

My  7 -year old son helped me in making this awesome cake; he designed the spider, otherwise I would have just made a big cake ball with legs and eyes..I would have been satisfied with that, but I have to admit this cake looks so much more like a spider than what I had in […]

Mocha Meringue Buttercream

Mocha Meringue Buttercream

This is a cross between Italian Meringue Butter Cream (aka IMBC to homebakers like myself) and French Butter Cream or Mousseline. Both are really delicious, the difference between the two is that the former uses egg whites only while the French buttercream uses egg yolks which I find too rich, btw.  These two are quite […]

Banana and Chocolate Crepes

Banana and Chocolate Crepes

Crepes are just like pancakes…paper-thin pancakes that you fill with fresh or cooked fruit fillings inside with chocolate sauce or whipped cream..so delicious. If only it’s as easy to make as regular pancakes. The first time I tried making crepes, it was a disaster, I wasn’t able to make a single crepe, they were all […]
