Snapshots

Snapshots of the day! Snapshots are my little posts, compilation of ideas, little stories or just something that strike my fancy. Here’s a smoothie idea that is extremely delicious. Almond Milk, Strawberries, Dates, Honey = Superstar Snack! (Or breakfast/brunch/anytime, really) Hope you have an astounding day, Dee    

Another Year, Another Hello.

2017, A New Page! 2016 was a difficult year for me. I was constantly in and out of the hospitals, constantly being hooked to IVs, and had countless of medications pump into my systems. I was hospitalized for asthma in January, had an endoscopy and colonoscopy by July, and then food poisoning by October. Phew!…

Chocolate Mousse

The best way to welcome long-time-no-see friends is with chocolate, yes? It was a delight to go back to familiar faces after 7 months apart, to sat in the same chair and felt the slippery wooden table, big enough to share for two. It was also a delight, that once I sat down, one by…

Breakfast Toast

Good morning! A quick hello and snapshot, what do you have for breakfast today? I am slowly nudged awake by the gentleness of this cream cheese toast drizzled with honey. Then, the aromatic guava with sharp balinese lime marmalade gave me a bang to get going. September is coming, fellas. PS: I used left-over cream…

Mini Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream

Every time my best friend, M comes to my house and spends some time in my room, she leaves some evidence. Back in high school, she left her phone. Then her watch. Then her books, cosmetics and a handful of other stuff I can’t even remember anymore. Recently, she left her earphone. I let it…

Red Cherries

My dad wants to get a six pack. Not a six pack of soda, not a six pack of beer, but abs. Like, movie star abs. Like Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love abs. (Remember when Emma Stone squealed, “Seriously? It’s like your photoshopped!” I can’t decide which one I like better, her attitude or…

Snapshots

Sometimes I do things without reasons. I have always felt that it is important to simply do things just for the heck of it. So if you ask me, why Snapshots? I cannot give you a legitimate answer. Some of the pictures below may be related to food, some may not. One thing I know…

Blueberry Icebox Pie

I imagine there is a cup of hot steaming coffee by my side. If it sits close enough to my keyboard, my pinky finger would briefly brush the warm glass when I press Enter. Maybe the earthy smell would slowly nudge my brain awake like the morning chaste kiss mothers give to their toddler. But…

Pots & Pans

Say hello to the newest additions of my family. Rrr… My kitchen family, that is. Mr Loaf Pan, readers. Readers, Mr Loaf Pan. Here are Mr and Mrs Springform 9 inch pan. Mr SP (Lets just make up some fun nicknames, shall we?) has been a member of my kitchen family for years and has…

Deconstructed Lemon-Blackberry Trifle

I’m trying to come up with a good first liner in this paragraph to draw you in. Nothing interesting comes up, so I decide to write about being confused instead. I stare at the blank page as seconds tick by, wondering what I should say… The words are stuck on the tip of my tongue,…

Banana Muffin

It seems like I picked the perfect time to missed all weddings, engagement parties, pregnancy celebrations and birth when I was away in Sydney. I knew I couldn’t make up my absence, so I baked this muffin instead and sent them to my loved ones. I love the simplicity of this muffin and the way…

Homemade Life by Molly W

I’m pretty sure my past self was half insane to even think Homemade Life by Molly W is boring. I want to hit her in the head with a pan. How could you? I would demanded. To say it was a good book was an understatement. Now I understand where she got all her awards!…
