My last few weeks have been totally swamped at work - and weekends were spent playing video games. 😅 I was also trying to finish up the dessert in my freezer so I took a break from the kitchen. Well, I'm back now, hopefully. This is a rather belated Valentine's Day post. I had this... Continue Reading →

I know, I know, I know. You must be tired of my cheesecake creations. So am I, kind of. But there's just all these flavours on my head that goes so well as cheesecakes. Still, this should be the last one for a while (as much as I love cheesecake, you just can't have too... Continue Reading →

I was cleaning out the freezer the other night and came across this jar of blueberry compote. I thought what better way to use it up than to bake a batch of these old favourite. I also still have that bag of Argentinian lemons my friend got me from France. 😅 I also decided to... 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. 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 →
