Hellooooo! Remember me? I’m baaaaack. I had a few things to take care of, like taking an exam, traveling back and forth between Rotterdam and KL for quite a bit. Oh, and I got married. Settling into married life and the traveling takes a while for me to get used to. I do not know how people with various holiday homes around the world do it, as I have yet to get used to living in 2 continents. I’m someone who needs a routine to stay grounded. Any advice is much welcomed!  Continue Reading →

Bok Choy Kimchi with Cucumbers

To resume blogging after a hiatus is harder that I thought. With many ongoing projects and remembering to get enough down time, writing for the blog became less of a priority. I have postponed writing too many times that I have to schedule in daily mandatory ‘writing’ time. Since my last post, I’m getting much better than expected, with occasional fatigue in between days. By following the new routine I’ve shared in my previous post and a careful intake of food, I’m feeling more energised and alert by the day. One of the things I’m doing to help with my digestion is increasing the intake of fermented or cultured food, that has beneficial bacteria. Continue Reading →

Back from Hibernation - Personal Update |

This is the longest I’ve stayed away from blogging. I owe you, my readers an update of what’s been happening. I’m thankful for those of you who are concern about my silence. I do not usually write about my personal life on this food blog but it’s time I ask for support and share my story. Maybe my story might share some light with others that they are not alone in their journey, whatever it may be. Continue Reading →

Flourless Chocolate Cake (Gluten, Grain, Nut & Dairy Free)

If you have not noticed by now, there is only one whole cake recipe here. There are a handful of baking recipes but I try not to venture into cakes. Baking is not one of my strengths when it comes to inventing healthy, gluten and/or dairy free recipes, and every time the cake ended up being the casualty because I have forgotten baking is not easy.

Flourless chocolate cake has been on my baking list for a while (having pinned a dozen of flourless chocolate cake recipes). I was all pumped up to make one for the year end celebration with my awesome new Tefal Kitchen Machine and having dreamt about blogging how easy the recipe was and how amazing the cake is.

Almond Cranberry Salted Chocolate Bark

It’s that time of year again – gifting time! I do not celebrate Christmas, I just enjoy joining in the joy of the year end festivities and gifting. I’m not very good at gift shopping – I always struggle to think of what to get someone & the frugal me dislike the thought my gift being stored away and never used.

I personally think the best gifts are edible ones. However most of the time, the edible gifts are unhealthy commercial sweets or cookies. One or two of these is OK, too much of it will make you feel unhealthy. The good news is there are many healthy and delicious edible gifts you can make. Friends who received my Passion Fruit Vinegars last year, kept requesting for them. Sorry, I make different gifts every year. You can get more ideas on my posts Homemade Edible Gift Ideas and 30 Healthy Dessert Ideas. People love receiving gifts when it’s been made with love. Yes, I know you don’t have time to make your own gifts, neither do I. But a lot of them are sooo quick and easy, like my previous No Bake Coconut Cranberry Seed Bars recipe.  And so are these Chocolate Bark. You can make them in bulk, and add personalised topping.  Continue Reading →
