My inspirations from flipping through recipes and tinkering with the ingredients in my pantry

About Me

I started this blog as a form of motivation to improve my skills as a self-taught baker who learns by watching cook shows and pouring over cookbooks. The wonderfully well-taken pictures of mouth-watering food (especially desserts) will always be an inspiration to me.

My experimental baking journey started when I got a new microwave oven about 5 years ago. And even so, I’m only an occasional baker during the holidays, going for fail-proof  recipes such as apple crumbles and easy muffins . I tend to use the microwave more, which is good for quick fixes such as heating up leftovers, warming drinks and even cooking food when I’m in a hurry. For a 2-in-1 appliance, it has served me well.

It was only during the past 1 year or so when I started to bake on a regular basis. Hard to believe but it’s true, baking will train your mental and motor skills. (Think of all the conversions, mental calculations, whisking and whipping). I even find the whole process therapeutic.

There were some hits and misses, but thankfully, I always have my ever supportive Hubby and dear friends to finish every last crumb and morsel of “goodness”.

My friends get their sugar rush from my desserts. I get mine from playing around with sugar.
