Lemon Curd

I have never tasted lemon curd before and I’ve always wanted to make a batch at home. I imagine it would be deliciously tangy; perfect with something sweet and delicious.. like layer cakes, doughnuts, lemon rolls and trifle.

Pain Perdu (Challah French Toast with Almonds)

Pain Perdu is french toast , it literally means “lost bread”. I first saw this from Barefoot Contessa, I love the addition of sliced almonds and how thick and big each toast is and the strawberry makes it soo mouth-watering; while I was watching Ina make it, I was itching to try it too at [...]

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

I’ve been meaning to try this dish from Ina Garten and finally I got over my laziness to peel a LOT of garlic cloves, (who likes peeling garlic anyway ;)) that I even went beyond 40. I love the aroma of garlic when it’s frying, soooo mouth-watering delicious. I never thought that one day I [...]

Bread pudding is one of my favorite childhood eats, but the bread pudding that I used to eat, I have to admit, wasn’t as delicious as this croissant bread pudding.   It’s not surprising though because the deliciousness of  a bread pudding depends on the quality of the bread you are using. I once saw [...]

Patrick Star’s Rock Cake (aka Beatty’s Chocolate Cake)

This cake is a really yummy chocolate cake. This recipe was chosen by Mary of Passionate Perseverance for the Barefoot Bloggers group [...]

Ina Garten’s Mango Banana Daiquiris

Last month I joined a group called Barefoot Bloggers, it’s a group of bloggers dedicated to following the steps of Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) by recreating her recipes, twice in a month.
