Macaron Me!

In the last week or so, I have taken upon myself the task of Macaron making. I was foraying into unknown territory and what an adventure! So new was I to these trendy meringue-like confections that I initially got them confused with macaroons! Note the additional ‘o’. Although both are made with similar ingredients […]

Savoury Curry Pillow Pastries

Curry pillows – Sort of curry puff, sort of samosa but I’m sticking to curry ‘pillows’ based on their shapely resemblance.

Warm, steaming muffins oozing with melted chocolate or hot blueberry compote, chunks of spicy fruit and toasted nuts or even lemon zest and grated ginger. Any combination works. And all under 30 minutes. As they are so quick to make, I usually bake them the […]

Scones with Foodsze’s Quicky Strawberry Conserve

Scones have a special place in my heart as this was one of the first few things I learnt from my late Aunty Jane who often whipped these in no time at all and the aroma of scones baking in the oven is just so tantalizing. I actually do not have her recipe but […]
