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 →

I admit I am rather predictable when it comes to tarts. Sorry to disappoint those of you who thought I'd fill those gorgeous tart shells with something different. But here they are again, with my favourite lemon curd and cream cheese mousse. Except, these are no regular lemons. These are made from the legendary Sicilian... Continue Reading →

Whenever I need to whip up something in a jiffy, this is my go-to recipe. And I promised our intern at work that I would bake her something special before she returns to France. So, here it is.

Earlier this week, a few friends and I got together to make a surprise cake for a friend's early birthday get-together. This friend of ours likes lemon and blueberry. And while this is not the final cake we presented to her, it is very much inspired by her favourite flavours. This petit gateau is made... Continue Reading →

Sometimes inspiration comes at the most unexpected time. And the inspiration for these came when I saw someone posting these pretty rose-shaped cheesecake on Facebook. I went on a hunt to find the silicone mold and was glad to have found it in my friendly local baking supply store. However, it took me a bit longer to... Continue Reading →

 I was never a fan of lemon meringue tarts. But, strangely enough, the more lemon meringue tarts I ate, the more I like them. And now, I have to say, I am officially a fan of lemon meringue tarts. These ones are so good, the first time I cut a small slice for "taste test", I... Continue Reading →
