Carrot Cupcakes Posted by: | December 22, 2010

I still think cupcakes are the best desserts for crowds as it is easy to distribute, not messy, and always cute to look at. This time, I made these adorable Carrot Cupcakes for my office to celebrate the end […]

Soooo… as promised, I am back with my FIRST cupcake entry from Vietnam. Though this has been baked awhile back, I haven’t had time to share it with you guys. I made them for my girlfriend’s birthday, but she happened to be down with wisdom tooth ache that day. Luckily my Orange Chiffon Cupcakes were […]

I’m back! And I mean it for real this time. 2010 is drawing to a close, and I realized I do NOT want to start 2011 NOT blogging. Christmas is coming, and my house is stocked with ingredients I bought to bake Christmas cookies. I can’t wait to start on my first batch of cookies […]

Stir Fry Pho (Pho Xao) Posted by: | September 23, 2010
 

After 1.5 weeks buzzing around settling into my home in Hanoi, I realized I am almost at the end of my 2-week break. And why do I not feel rested at all? I can’t really recall the last time I felt truly rested. This move has really been draining me out. I thought once I […]

Hello Hanoi! Posted by: | September 20, 2010
 

Hi everyone… I’m finally back home safe and sound, still awaiting my massive shipment by boat from Singapore that contains mostly my kitchen tools, but I have been pretty busy in the kitchen with my Mom over the weekend. Despite the shock of being back in the crazy traffic and melting heat, I truly enjoy […]

I know you guys must have forgotten about this blog by now. Or if not, you would be wondering why I haven’t been posting lately. Well, I’ve realized that I can’t cook when I’m not feeling completely at peace and easy. For the past 1 month, I haven’t been at ease. Big changes are coming […]

Pasta with Squid, Tomatoes and Capers Posted by: | July 4, 2010
 

And yet another week of no blogging. I’m so sorry guys! There are so many changes coming up in my life that I’m just so overwhelmed and can’t even get myself to even watch the latest Nigella Express. Sigh. However, Gym night is a good excuse to cook ahead as I’m always monstrously hungry after […]

I know I haven’t been blogging for ages. And I apologize for that. Trust me, there are nights that I woke up in cold sweat, freaking out that I would lose you readers because of my hiatus period. I might have exaggerated a bit. But there was not a day that went by in the […]
