Only looking at this cute little croquembouche tower. Only looking at it! This is called FESTIVE!
Cream puffs filled with vanilla pastry cream. Lots of them. A little tree tower for Christmas. I know you don’t want to destroy it, but it’s also hard to resist the temptation. So I just used half of cream puffs to make the tower, the other half of them……gone!
Happy Monday! I started my week with this wonderful, homey, cozy braided egg buns. How about yours?
I know making bread might sound pretty intimidating and impossible. But it’s just that first step you start it, and trust me, you will get addicted!
I’ve tried and tried and tried lots of recipes over the year to find the perfect pizza dough. Sadly, it’s either too tough to work with, not rising, or the crust simply tasted like a piece of cardboard.
My motivation to get me keep trying was my son’s obsession for pizza. I wanted him to be that same crazy when he’s eating my home-made pizza. And finally I’ve come to this one which he cheerfully calls Mommy Pizza. The key is to give time to proof the dough. Cliché! I know. But my house is kind of cold, the typically required 2-hour rising time was never enough. I prepare my dough in the morning, and let it rise throughout the day! Yes, at least 8 hours.
These barbecue beef cheese sliders are literally petite burgers! Small in size. Big on taste. One for kid. Two for adult. And you have a simple summer dinner ready in no time. Imagine when your kids keep asking you to take them to Mcdonald’s for burgers, and you can totally come with the same thing, even tastier and healthier and just better, tell me who is the bigger winner!
“What cake are you going to make for Valentine’s Day?” I was asked this question yesterday because, normally and logically, as an active cake baker, I should come up with a pink or red cake with roses on top for Valentine’s Day.
In fact, I AM NOT GOING TO MAKE ANY CAKES. Not anything at all! I am never crazy about Valentine’s Day. I simply love to make cakes whenever I want. Probably not on February 14th.
