I recently got some Jasmine Green Tea powder from Paragon Tea Room, and I was curious how it would taste in a dessert recipe. So I made a Jasmine Lemon Pound Cake. I was surprised at how the tea turned out aromatic and noticeable in the cake. I added some lemon zest to balance the flavor and was satisfied with the results. It is a one-bowl recipe, with four simple ingredients to start. You can literally turn the recipe into any flavor, and it is a great addition to your next afternoon tea party.(more…)
Recently, I got my hands on the most beautiful and aesthetically-looking fruits, Del Monte® Pinkglow® Pineapple. The fruit is naturally pink, with an aromatic sweet note when I cut it open.

This is inspired by how people love dipping apple pies into ice cream. It is easy to make, and the end results are surprisingly delicious.(more…)

Mid-Autumn Festival is coming up soon, and it becomes a tradition for me to make mooncakes since two years ago. This year, I upgraded my recipe for making Snow Skin Mooncakes, so the skin will still be chewy and mochi-like even after 3-4 days in the freezer. In terms of the filling, I am making a simple shredded coconut paste with purple yam lava.(more…)
