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 →

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 →

I am not really one to obsessed about getting the perfectly shaped cake, as I normally prefer my cakes smothered in frosting. Even then, it was strangely satisfying to finally achieve that, even if you cannot tell from this picture. The cake is split in half and filled with a layer of leftover lemon cream...

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 →
