This is not like my usual post. But, honestly, I have made this 4 to 5 times - some for myself and some as gifts. In fact, the first time I made a batch, I went through half of them in one sitting. They are so delicious! These are a perfect balance of sweet and... Continue Reading →

My last tiramisu was a bit of a disaster - mostly because it didn't taste like a tiramisu at all! So this one I wanted to go back to basic, and go with a classic tiramisu recipe. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a recipe from an actual Italian grandma, so I went for the next best... Continue Reading →

It's been a while since I last baked cheesecakes, and I came across this Earl Grey cheesecake that really caught my fancy.

The best way to know if your cookies are going to taste awesome? Nib a bit of the cookie dough and if you feel like you want to eat another big chunk of it before it even made it into the oven, you know you're on the right track! I have been wanting to visit The... Continue Reading →

My colleagues and I were invited to an ex-colleague's place for lunch. And I think that's a perfect excuse to bake something for dessert.
