Oreo cheesecake bars.

These were delicious. My MUM even liked them, and my mother is  a woman who rarely eats chocolate and NEVER eats chocolate biscuits. This took me so long to make though. I just wish I had a food processor and didn’t need to crush cookies by hand. Cookies and cream is such a great dessert flavour. Continue reading “Oreo cheesecake bars.”

Baked ricotta cheesecake.

[View on Instagram]

I’ve made this cake five times in the last three weeks. I did a lot of research before settling on this recipe, which sort of picks and chooses ingredients and amounts from countless others. A few months ago I made a very thin baked cheesecake without ricotta, and with Arnott’s shortbread creams for the base. It turned out really tasty but I had my heart set on trying out a ricotta cheesecake. I wanted to top the cake with raspberries but the frozen ones I had were… ugly. I decided to smoothie those, and get some other picture pretty berries out for this one.

White chocolate panna cotta.

This is the first time I’ve ever made panna cotta and I was honestly so happy with the results. I could have made a plain, traditional vanilla flavoured dessert but I decided I would wait til I hate vanilla bean paste to use instead of just vanilla extract. I like the look of creamy white panna cotta, but for a vanilla flavoured one I would like to see little speckles of vanilla bean in it. Continue reading “White chocolate panna cotta.”

Malaysian street-style mee goreng.

I haven’t made hokkien at home since my birthday party in November. I made this dish for iftar on Tuesday night. It was supposed to be for my friend Ishrat, alongside a smoked salmon pasta, but she was incapacitated unfortunately. 😦

For months since I got back from Bangladesh I would watch mee goreng recipe videos on YouTube late at night. I kept planning to try combining some recipes to get a flavour I’d prefer, but just never got around to it until now. Continue reading “Malaysian street-style mee goreng.”

Creamy chilli garlic prawn fettuccine with parsley.

I made this recipe about a week ago *breaks out into the Shmoney dance* and used no cream. I didn’t have any at home so I went for a more olive oil based sauce inspired by Laura Vitale. It was really tasty! I made it a bit too spicy though, but didn’t use less chilli powder in tonight’s recipe because I knew that the addition of cream would counter the heat but still give me incredible flavour.

Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.

I wanted something sweet to drink and I had half a small carton of cream leftover to use up. Ordinarily I’d have used vanilla ice cream, but this time I omitted all vanilla ice cream and extract from the recipe.

I had to resist the urge to Snapchat document the entire process. An addiction I will describe in another post haha. I think I would make a decent vlogger… Recipe videos would be so much fun as well. Continue reading “Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.”
