Ricotta Lemon Rosemary Cupcakes with Tomato Jam Filling

I probably have never gone so long without posting. But it seems an unfortunate habit for me to pick up some nasty flu virus when the flu season is already over and everybody else but me enjoys outdoors, warm weather… Continue reading →

Goat Cheese Crostini with Blood Orange and Black Pepper Marmalade

I spotted this idea in Bon Appétit a couple of years ago and fell instantly in love. I’ve been making the marmalade regularly since then, as often as I lay my hands on organic blood oranges. Adapted from Bon Appétit.

Chocolate Rice Pudding with Caramel Crème Chantilly

This kind of dessert is my comfort food during sometimes seemingly endless rainy Vancouver days. It’s creamy, chocolaty, sweet and soothing.

Candied Kumquat Tiramisu

This month’s Daring Bakers’ challenge was Italian tiramisu. Deeba from Passionate About Baking and Aparna from My Diverse Kitchen, the hosts of the challenge, chose Carminantonio’s tiramisu recipe from the “The Washington Post”, July 11, 2007. The whole thing was… Continue reading →
