Joyeux Noel

Hello dearies!

It's been a loooooong time, I know. Well, to cut the long story short, I got lazy. But look! It's less than a week left to the end of the year and you'll cut me some slack, right? I won't be writing lots since I'm running out of time, but here's two "recipes" for you, if you're up for some last minute Christmas baking. Here's wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Just so you know...

...that I haven't been idling around! It's been 6 months (almost 7!) since I last posted and so many things have been happening. Work has been keeping me really busy and now I'll be having to move on to look for another one... made a trip to Tokyo at the beginning of the month and had a great time... and obviously been busying myself in the kitchen too! Let's hope I get around to post about some of these things. 

Have a great week ahead!
And Happy Halloween :)

Bread Making II

Apple and mozzarella loaf

Taking advantage of my available weekends, I've been making bread every Saturday ever since I got hooked on kneading bread by hand. I've been trying my hands on different recipes to build up my experience in working with yeast and it's been somewhat of a roller coaster ride. After my sweet success at bread making baking the pumpkin marble bread, I think I got a little too proud of myself. Because right after that, my subsequent bread attempts yielded quite disappointing results.

When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives me lemons, I think I'd prefer to make lemon cake. Well, so life didn't actually give me lemons, I got them the very un-supernatural way at the supermarket, way too many of them. I've been craving for lemon cake for the longest time, specifically the lemon cake from House @ Dempsey. I think I started missing the marvellous cake just as I was leaving the restaurant. Come to think of it, I don't exactly remember how exactly it tasted except that it was wonderfully sour and tangy. I never got around to satisfying my craving because it's just darn hard to get to House, and I wasn't sure if the more accessible Skinny Pizza outlets offered desserts (and I always neglected to investigate).
