It's been a while since I last baked cheesecakes, and I came across this Earl Grey cheesecake that really caught my fancy. This cheesecake recipe is gluten free (although the crust isn't) and it turned out to be really creamy. As usually I used a reconstructed pâte sucrée base for the cheesecake. And since I...

It has been a while since my last post. But, there is just too many things happening! This is my last bake for 2017. And this is a recipe from parischezsharon, which I just had to try once I saw it on her feed. I was probably a bit too generous with the coffee extract,... Continue Reading →

Funny story: During my Malta trip, I was invited to a friend's place for a barbecue, Malta style. Meaning, lots of food, beer and wine, and lots of laugh throughout the evening. One of the memorable thing we ate was this chunk of Brie, which was so creamy! My friend was raving about it and... Continue Reading →

It is strawberry season in Europe. While there, I saw more strawberries than I can ever imagine. Sometimes, there are even random stalls setup in street corners, selling only strawberries. It's a pity I couldn't bring them back. So when I saw some nice strawberries at the local grocers, I just had to buy some... Continue Reading →

Once you've gotten used to eating homemade desserts, you realise it is so much harder to satisfy that sweet tooth. I have been craving some chocolate cheesecake so I thought I'd do a Blackforest version this time. The base is a baked chocolate cheesecake speckled with Kirsch-soaked cherries. And this is topped with cream cheese... Continue Reading →

It's been so long since I was last in the kitchen. Coupled with the crazy hot weather, I really did not feel like doing anything other than sitting in front of the telly. But, I do miss baking and I was afraid I'd lose my baking mojo if I'd stay away for another weekend. So... Continue Reading →
