Today I interviewed my good friend Rachel from the Youtube channel Kawaii Sweet World. She’s a genius when it comes to all things baking Kawaii.  The virtual world is a daunting place. There are so many  individuals sharing their ideas, skills and talent online. But it is often difficult to think of these people as […]

Salted caramel and whisky infused chocolate truffles. Bound to please just about anyone! #hotchocolatehits #chocolate

Whisky Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles

A whisky and salted caramel infused chocolate truffle, perfect for Valentine’s Day.  Alas, winter is coming to an end. The snow falls slowly, then fades away. The days grow longer and the temperature rises. While spring is associated with an awakening- with a sense of freshness and resolve, I can’t help but feel a twinge of melancholy. […]

Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies

A dark, deep cake-like exterior sandwiched together with a billowy, marshmallow interior. A day before Christmas, I got my weekly amazon.co.uk subscription e-mail that I never signed up for and usually just ignore. But for some reason, I didn’t delete it immediately. And good thing I didn’t. Because I ended up finding an awesome deal and […]

homemade chocolate chip pan cookie

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie

Well, it’s actually a brown butter peanut butter chocolate chip pan cookie all made in one pan but I thought that title was a little too verbose. Plus I made this with my friend Lily, which makes it all the more awesome. Because I produce desserts on a weekly basis, I should not have a […]

An easy, delicious recipe for red velvet cupcakes from scratch.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Now this is what I call a red velvet cupcake.  I never quite understood the Red Velvet hype that dominated the cupcake world until I actually tried one. Food coloring seems daunting in a sense- overpoweringly bright and unnatural- because, well, it is. So whenever I made my way into a cupcakery, I went for the classic […]

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

Soft, buttery sugar cookies that melt in your mouth. One of my most popular videos on Youtube! I was introduced to the Sugar Cookie at the age of 14. My friend had made these large, puffy sugar cookies slathered with buttercream icing and decorated with sugared sprinkles. I remember going back for seconds, thirds even. In awe, I […]

Perfect Valentine's Day Cookies- Heart Piñata Cookies that you can't go wrong with!

Heart Piñata Cookies for Valentine’s Day

These are the best cookies you could make for Valentine’s Day- piñata heart cookies filled with candy. Get ready to break some hearts! I meant the cookies. In Elementary School, Valentine’s Day had a different meaning. I remember having Valentine’s Day class parties, which I always looked forward to- the only thing I even associated the […]

Dark Chocolate, Raspberry and Banana Whole Wheat Pancakes

This may seem hard to believe, but occasionally I like to cook healthy. Whenever I post a recipe, I try and make sure it is the best version it can be- in other words, I will only put something up if it has been tried, tested and, well, enjoyed. This is difficult when it comes […]

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Dark, soft chocolate sugar cookies with a vanilla and chocolate glaze- perfect for Valentine’s Day! I have a confession to make. I ate four of these cookies today. I have another confession. I started eating them before they went into the oven. Guilty. There’s a reason why I freeze half of the dough. I’ve said this […]
