Raw Cashew Butter

Posted by Trish on July 17, 2013 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (1)

No baking involved, but sooo delicious!!!  Place raw cashews into a food processor and it somehow turns into a sweet, creamy, frosting-like spread.  I personally find raw cashews sweeter than their roasted twin, and they retain a lot more nutrients.

Have you seen my flour?

Posted by Trish on July 1, 2013 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

A friend had kindly pointed out that it's been a while since my last post.  Truth is I'm having trouble juggling my lifestyle, so indulgent baking was neglected.  Thanks to my social committements, I'm forced to go find my flour.

Different But The Same

Wow, another year has gone by and it's J's birthday. How do you usually feel on your birthday? The same, but different? I kind of ended up with a cake just like that!!!

Last year, J's birthday cake was a three tiered chocolate cake with caramel and chocolate frosting. After flipping through versions and versions of different...

Loving Lemons Pudding Cake

Posted by Trish on February 28, 2013 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (2)

When you ask the average person what their favourite flavour is for desserts, you usually get chocolate, vanilla, caramel or strawberry.  I have to be different.. mine is lemon. Lemon everything!  But it's hard to find a good lemon dessert out there because they usually use stimulated lemon flavouring instead of real lemons.  And let's face it, the flavour of real lemons cannot be beat by artificial lemon flavouring.  So I usually get pretty dis...

Happy Valentine's Day

Posted by Trish on February 9, 2013 at 9:25 PM Comments comments (0)

J and I usually don't celebrate Valentine's day.  I personally see it as "single's awareness" day.  It's one of the few (if not only) holidays, where a lot of people feel terrible about their situation. So even when I was young, I never celebrated V-day.  I do however take advantage of cheap chocolates on Feb.15.

Homemade Ketchup

Posted by Trish on February 9, 2013 at 1:35 PM Comments comments (1)

I started making my own ketchup ever since we started the clean eating lifestyle. Please don't roll your eyes at me.  Hear me out, making your own ketchup lets you customize it to your taste and control the ingredients going into it.  How about bacon-flavoured ketcup?  I think that would be amazing!!

This one has a bit of a kick and is sugar-free.  It definitely does not taste like Heinz, which I love.  But it ta...

Clean Cookies

Posted by Trish on January 12, 2013 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

So I'm still on this clean streak.  I stumbled onto this No-Bake Trail Mix Cookie.  

It's sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly (aka also dairy-free).  So I admit that I was pretty skeptical about it being yummy.  But at this point, we sometimes really need to take the edge off the sugar cra...

Right now there's mug cakes popping up left, right, and center.  What is a mug cake???  It is the easiest, and fastest way to get warm cake into your tummy.  There is a compromise in texture but we're talking about 5 - 7 minutes from raw ingredients to your tummy

Have you ever heard of the children's story  "If you give a mouse a cookie"?  I feel like that when I bake.  I start with one ...

Merry Christmas!!!!

Posted by Trish on December 28, 2012 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Yay!!! It's that time of year again!!  I called up Mother Patrissherie and casually mentioned how I didn't know what to bring for our Christmas dinner, since my desserts magically flop (read fail) every year.  She instantly started rambling off a list of ingredients that she needed to purchase since she purged her pantry recently.

And the ginger hit the milk.....

Posted by Trish on November 11, 2012 at 3:20 AM Comments comments (0)

J loves ginger.  He loves ginger so much that sometimes I seriously feel like planting a ginger tree.  Pinterest tells me that it's easy enough, right?

Coming from a Cantonese family, we love our sweets contrary to our Mandarin cousins.  Desserts are commonly found in ...
