Oeufs en cocotte (Eggs in pot)




Sweat: 4%
Sweet: 96%

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, mom reminds me all the time. But sometimes, especially on a Sunday, I just want to skip breakfast (that is if I am already awake :P) and go straight to lunch, or brunch in this case. Usually, I do not crave for a bigger portion of food, but I always want something that can fill me up and make me satisfied. Oeufs en cocotte is just perfect. Apron on!

Mini pavlovas




*** I doubt if I do not update my blog anytime sooner, my baby sister is going to buy a ticket and fly all the way from Hong Kong to hunt me down. LOL. When I spoke to her earlier today, I promised her I would be updating it (FINALLY!!!), she was thrilled. So this is me keeping my promise :D Enjoy! ***

Simple baked cheesecake


I felt like I had almost dumped my blog after months of no new updates. Whilst I did and still do cook, I have sort of lost the motivation to blog (not the first time I know!). Fortunately, the cheesecake that I baked a couple weeks ago was just too scrumptious that almost everyone who tasted it asked me for a copy of the recipe. And so here I am, back to blogging! YIPPEE! In fact, at this very moment I have oxtail braising in red wine on my stove top and pie crust sitting in my fridge before I make some yummy apple pies later. Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy this simple yet so lovely recipe.

Welcoming 2013


Hello 2013. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. 

It has been exactly one month since I last blogged. During this time, I have been quite busy and in such case busy refers to hanging out with friends, dinner parties, travelling and of course dealing with the post-holiday syndrome - adjusting myself back to the routine life after these wonderful and happy moments. 

Whilst still struggling to overcome my post-holiday syndrome, I think today is the perfect day to start blogging again because it is way too cold to go outside. I woke up this morning with blanket of snow covering pretty much the whole car park close to where I live. Other parts of the UK especially the south were and are still being hit by intense snow. The weather is below freezing outside and I am shivering inside despite having already had two glasses of hot water. "Why not put your heater on then?" One might ask. Well, it is already on! But because of my BIG BIG BIG window in my room, it takes probably twice or perhaps thrice the time to heat up my room. Unfortunately, my working desk is just next to the BIG window whilst my heater is far away near my bed.  

Despite my excitement to blog, I just do not know where to start. Should I blog about presents I got for Christmas first? Or should I blog about the dinner parties and recipes? Or should I blog about my travel adventures and how I stupidly missed the flight for the very first time in my life? I am still deciding and in the mean time I wish all of you a happy snowy weekend :D
