i still have a long long way to go in cake frosting techniques. i love how chitz does it, her cakes are so immaculate!

this was the first recipe i tried from the donna hay book i got last week. judging from the feedback, now inspired to try out more of her recipes.


buttermilk pancakes

today i decided to make pancakes for breakfast because the small carton of buttermilk in the fridge is nearing its use-by date.



i got the recipe from here. it was wonderfully fluffy and soft. i had mine with butter and golden syrup. 🙂

checkerboard cookies

December 1, 2006 at 12:06 am | Posted in Cookies | 3 Comments

yesterday i tried my hand at a batch of checkerboard cookies to celebrate the end of my FIRST paper. (it seems that i need to justify why i bake during the exam period.)


i used the recipe from the williams-sonoma book, but realised that this recipe is exactly the same. (even the photograph)

i think this will be the first and last time i’ll be making these. it was too much of a hassle, i couldn’t get myself to cut off nicely-measured logs and i thought that the taste of the cookies weren’t particularly great. i ended up using cookie cutters for a good portion of the dough and sandwiched them together with nutella.
