Melt-In-Mouth Oreo Chocolate Chip German Cookies​ ​ 入口即化奥利奥巧克力豆德国酥饼 (中英食谱教程)

How's your Lunar New Year so far?  I have a great time spent with family visiting relatives and close friends during the first 4 days of Chinese New Year (CNY). We had a long weekend to celebrate this year as the first and second day of the Lunar New Year fell on Thursday (19 Feb) and Friday (20 Feb). It was great catching up with one another over sumptuous meals and CNY goodies. 

The CNY lasts for 15 days and we've got another week before it ends but my homebaked goodies are already running low in stock. (Click here to check out my CNY recipes) Today, I created another flavour of the melt-in-the-mouth German cookies since my family just can't get enough of it. Here's sharing another great flavour which you MUST try, I guarantee you will love it just as much as my other sweet and savoury ones!  

Homemade Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice-Cream 自制黑巧克力花生酱雪糕 (中英食谱教程)

Pardon my photo taking as it is really not easy to capture nice ice-cream shots in our hot humid weather in Singapore. I am using the Tovolo Ice-cream scoop which provides the perfect scoop and keeps the counter clean.   

Ever since I have an ice-cream maker at home, I have been making ice-cream almost fornightly. I enjoy experimenting new ice-cream flavours but my family's favourite is still the Matcha ice-cream which you can find the recipe here

Besides Matcha flavour, we love dark chocolate (see the benefits below) ice-cream too especially the premium dark chococolate 'Hei' (黑) ice-cream from Awfully Chocolate. I am still experimenting and hope that I will achieve close to the 'Hei' (黑) chocolate ice-cream one day...hei hei! ;p Meanwhile, let me share this new creation that I tried yesterday which satisfied my craving for dark chocolate and peanut butter at the same time!

Racoon cut-out Cookies - Valentine's Special 浣熊造型饼干- 情人节特定 (中英食谱教程)

Two weeks ago, my blogger friend, Fion invited me to join in the fun of posting Valentine's cookie together with a few other bloggers on Valentine's Day. Here's sharing these Racoon cookies which I have baked specially for my dear hubby. The racoon holds a special meaning for me as the first gift I received from my other half during our first date was a stuff toy racoon. (you'll see it on the left in the photo below) Hope these racoon cookies will bring him fond memories of our courtship days.

Cheesy Pineapple Tarts - Goat shaped 芝士凤梨酥- 山羊造型 (中英食谱教程)

Just one more week to the Lunar New Year and we will be welcoming the Goat Year. I have seen many bakers baking the lovable sheep cookies but I wanted to do something different. So, I put on my thinking cap and ponder on how to transform my round pineapple tarts into a goat shape. Finally, I work out something this afternoon and here's sharing with you my new creation of a goat pineapple tart. Hope you like it! 

我们即将迎接羊年的来临,心想做些羊造型的年饼。在网上看到很多网友都做了可爱绵羊造型的酥饼,但我想与众不同。想了好几天,今天下午终于让我想出怎么做出山羊的造型了,就迫不急特地烘焙了这些山羊入口即化的凤梨酥。在这跟你分享我的独家创作, 希望你会喜欢。也祝大家在羊年洋洋得意,新春飞扬,喜气洋洋,扬眉吐气,青春洋溢,羊年行大运。

Three weeks ago, my good friend Lois whatsapp me and told me that I am on news...what? on news? She asked me to quickly get a copy of WanBao newspaper that Saturday night as Baking Taitai was mentioned about her homemade bak kwa in a Chinese New Year Bak Kwa article. What a pleasant surprise!

Chocolate Cheesecake - Highly Recommended! 巧克力乳酪蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

This cake was made specially for my dear hubby's birthday last Thursday. He is one who does not like cream on cake and I recalled baking him a Molten Lava Cake last year. This year I have used two of his favourite food (mine as well), Dark Chocolate and Cream Cheese for his birthday cake and he loves it! This cheesecake is highly recommended and you can make it for the coming Valentine's Day or after meal dessert for reunion dinner!

这是上星期四做给老公的生日蛋糕,有他最喜欢的黑巧克力和奶油奶酪,他非常喜欢还赞好吃呢! 这强力推荐的巧克力芝士蛋糕,在来临的情人节或年除夕做饭后甜品吧!
