Bomboloni (Italian Doughnuts)

Finally got to try making bomboloni!  Bomboloni are Italian filled doughnuts.  They are small and round (just like bombs, hence the name, according to wikipedia) and so light and delicious especially with chocolate that you may not notice that you’ve already eaten a lot. Don’t make too much if you don’t want that to happen- [...]

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 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 [...]

Simple Steamed Bread Pudding »

Simple Steamed Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is not the kind that you serve with sauce or eat with a dessert spoon or fork;  it’s the kind that you just carry around and eat with your hands.  It  was made with just enough custard for the bread to absorb.  This is the bread pudding that I grew up with [...]

Pastry Cream »

Pastry Cream

Pastry cream, creme patissiere or custard cream is that delicious filling  you get when you bite into an eclair, cream puffs or boston creme (doughnut or cake); it’s also what’s underneath a bed of  fruit tarts. It’s creamy, not too sweet and needless to say, yummy! It didn’t come out right the first time I [...]

What’s better than tiramisu? Why, chocolate tiramisu, of course!   This is Giada de Laurentiis recipe as seen on her show, I forgot which because she has several shows, it’s one of my favorite recipes.   I made this for Valentine’s last week – I divided the recipe into 3 containers, gave the 2 small [...]

No-Bake Cheesecake »

No-Bake Cheesecake

One of my favorite desserts to make back when I didn’t know how to bake yet.  This is no-doubt very easy but you need to  make it in advance because it needs some time to chill in the fridge before serving.  It’s been a long while since I last made this and I have quite [...]
