Cherry and Peach Galette

Read Article →

There's something pretty magical about nature and the fruits that come into season around the same time. Peaches and cherries go together so well and they're in season at the same time. Peaches and blueberries, same thing. Strawberries and rhubarb, the classic spring combo. Apples and pears, the fall duo. Do they go so well together by accident or have we been conditioned to like them together simply because they are both around at the same time? 

These are the things that keep me up at night.

Just kidding, that would be my anxiety-filled self-doubts about work and life and my future.

Cherry Pistachio and Almond Tarts

Read Article →

It's been three weeks since my last post! I wish I had a real excuse for my absence, like a vacation or my oven broke or my camera died, but it was really just a lack of time... I'm enjoying summer while I can, you can't blame me for that! Although there is the constant nagging in the back of my mind saying, "You should post something this week! You really should!". 

Whatever, nagging voice, get outta here.

Brown Butter and Peach Brioche Bun

Read Article →

I always have a hard time thinking of something to make with peaches because to me, peaches are best enjoyed exactly as they are. I'm talking fresh as can be, juice dripping down your wrist as you bite and slurp at the soft flesh, and sucking on the pit to get every last bit of deliciousness that you can. That is how I want to eat my peaches, 9 times out of 10.

But sometimes, I do want to do a bit more with them. You don't want to mess with them too much or you lose that delicate texture and flavour.

S'mores Custard Cake

Read Article →

Every summer, I have to make a s'mores dessert. There's just something about the summer and the warm weather than makes me crave that graham cracker-chocolate-toasted marshmallow combo. Theres just no beating it. 

Way back in 2013, it was a s'mores tart. Last year, it was s'mores cream puffs. This year, I think I may have really outdone myself with this s'mores custard cake. I don't even know if I can make another s'mores dessert that isn't this cake because this is the pinnacle of s'mores reincarnations.

Strawberry and Vanilla Bean Jam

Read Article →

Well, this is the fourth and final recipe from my giant haul of strawberries that I bought a few weeks ago (the previous three being strawberries and cream pavlova, roasted strawberry and balsamic vinegar ice cream sandwiches, and strawberry financiers). Finally, we have reached the end of the strawbaggedon. 

Except maybe not, because I froze a bunch of strawberries because I just couldn't handle any more strawberries desserts at the time. But they'll be back.
