Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes

Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes

It’s true time really flies so fast. I realized with a little pinch in my heart as I look at  my kids..they are no longer babies! In fact,  my youngest, my dear boy outgrew me already by an inch ( it was easy anyway because I’m on the short side hehe). I was glad and […]

Ricciarelli (Sienese Almond Cookies)

Ricciarelli (Sienese Almond Cookies)

I love these cookies. When I bite into it, it’s like I’m transported into the old world where people in  dresses and suits have their afternoon teas in beautiful gardens or patios, enjoying each other’s companies, having real conversations and with impeccable manners. It’s a by-gone world that I only imagine from the classic books […]

Chocolate Crazy Cake

Chocolate Crazy Cake

So you want to bake a cake and found out you’re out of eggs? No worries, this recipe doesn’t require  eggs or butter. I’ve read that this cake was created by resourceful moms during the time of Great Depression in the US. I’m not sure why it’s called crazy cake, though.  Maybe because it must […]

Buche de Noel (Yule Log Cake)

Creamy Mushroom & Truffle Oil Spaghetti

Creamy Mushroom & Truffle Oil Spaghetti

Cream and oil-based pasta dishes are currently my favorite. I still like tomato-based pasta but it’s taking a backseat for now. I just love that  creamy cheese and extra-virgin olive oil in my pasta,  I like spaghetti the most among all pasta shapes and sizes out there.  Of course you may use your preferred pasta for this recipe, I like […]

One Pot Mac & Cheese with Veggies

One Pot Mac & Cheese with Veggies

I love mac and cheese. I love it even more when I don’t have to do a lot of clean up after 🙂  I love the idea of  not having to make the cheese sauce separately.  This reminds me of sopas (macaroni soup) that I loved as a kid but with the milk broth reduced […]

Salted egg yolk Shrimp

Salted egg yolk Shrimp

I love salted egg, I think I may have mentioned it in one of my early posts that I like having it for my afternoon snack paired with ice-cold bottle of coke back in my college years- those carefree days of not having to worry about cholesterol; that time when I do not seem to […]

They’re perfect for tea time. I […]
