A few weeks back, my good friend R rang me up to rant. His cousin who have major health issues with 3 stents placed in his arteries (stents are tubes placed into blocked arteries to help the blood flow) and very overweight. R encouraged his cousin to start with short routine exercise as R have lost a lot of weight by doing so. Cousin’s wife reply: No time to exercise. Continue Reading →
2 more days to Chinese New Year and I’m totally overwhelmed with last minute preparations. A lot of things happened unexpectedly.. or it’s more like me being too ambitious with a long to-make list and I end up with many late night baking.. and panda eyes. So this post will be short.

Every now and then, I do crave for rich & creamy desserts like cheesecakes. When I do come across recipes I like, I try to make the recipes lighter & healthier. The baked cheesecake requires patience (which I don’t have when it comes to baking) and lots of spare time. This is a quick and simple no-bake dessert that is slightly healthier, that you would happily indulge. And doesn’t these No Bake Ricotta Cheescake Bites with Pecan Base and colourful toppings make a pretty dessert? Continue Reading →

I’ve been wanting to make pulled beef, but can’t seem to find a good gluten free bread to go with it. How happy I am when I found I can take spelt bread and I get to try the pulled beef.

But this month has been so busy with my participation in the Nutriplus Baking Competition that I’m only managed to squeeze in time to post this recipe in the nick of time. More stories about the baking competition soon.
After making a couple different types of pancake (Strawberry Crepes, Gluten free Crepes and the last one Durian Pancake), I was intrigued with the tender and pliable texture of the durian pancake that makes it easy to wrap or fold. I thought it is be a great recipe to tweak for a gluten free wrap. Continue Reading →
I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love Banana Bread. Or anyone who doesn’t love baked goods.
When mama came visiting recently, I made these oat biscuits for her. I was happy to have found a gluten free recipe here. The biscuits were crumbly and a tad too bland for me (with just ¼ teaspoon sea salt). Mama was happy with the bland taste, but it was horrifying for me to realise how much more sugar & salt was in the store-bought biscuits. Continue Reading →
