gum gum charlotte royale (blackberry and lemon)

All this work for a damn cake with issues. Freshly released from the mold like some kind of ugly newborn, I realized with a quickly sinking heart that I was gonna need to pull out the flowers and piping bag to make this one presentable. […]

healthy mocha banana bread

healthy mocha banana bread

  This Korean supermarket my family frequents, H-Mart, has an ingenious way of getting rid of their aging, spotted bananas. Instead of tossing them in the trash, they sell huge boxes of these imperfect specimens for a bargain price. 10 bananas under a buck? Sign […]

I’m eons late (as usual), but it was my birthday about 2 weeks ago, on the 15th of April! Every year, without fail, I make my own birthday cake. It’s one of the highlights of the year. For times sake, most other days I skip […]

    Peanut butter could possibly be heaven on earth. I mean, I’m not religious at all, but I’d gladly make exceptions for peanut butter. Smooth, delicious peanut butter. Just writing about this is making my taste buds excited. Yeah, I’m that kinda person who […]

  Ok, wow. I’ve never tried this type of cake before, but now I think I’ve been converted into a worshipper of the raw cheesecake gods. Raw cashew “cheesecakes” are a relatively new phenomena that have appeared in the past years, especially with the rising […]
