February 7, 2016

 It’s the new year again for me! I love being able to celebrate New Years twice in less than two months. This time, it’s Chinese New Year and it begins on Monday, February 8th, the year of the Monkey. I grew up with a mix of cultures, and as long as I can remember I’ve always […]

Glazed Lemon-Coconut Crinkle Cookies
January 17, 2016

I don’t know if it’s the weather or just the taste of the summer that I miss. There’s something refreshing and light in the lemon I can’t get enough of. It’s been almost a week I’m craving for anything citrusy. We always have so many lemons at home and I had some time to kill, so I […]

A week ago we went to visit my aunt and while talking about food, holidays, recipes etc., we ended up talking about chestnut spread; the silky, smooth deliciousness we used to have during this time of the year.

This recipe is for my little brother. Banana is his favorite fruit and he can’t eat enough of it. This banana bread is his […]

Chocolate shortbread cookies
June 5, 2015

Cookies are such a special dessert. They’re not fancy by nature like millefeuille or macarons, but they’re not one of those cheap desserts either. Really they’re kind of like a nice warm hug from someone you know and love.

Homemade Ricotta Cheese
May 15, 2015

On my birthday, we went for breakfast at Tulie Bakery. A cute little French bakery nestled in the Sugarhouse neighborhood of Salt Lake City. I had a delicious slice of toast with homemade ricotta and local raspberry jam. As always  I posted a picture of it to Instagram, as you know I love to share […]

On my last visit in the beautiful island of Mauritius a few months ago, I was looking for these small, delicious chili cakes (or gâteaux piments in French) everywhere I went. I know it sounds weird but trust me, they are amazing. It’s a specialty of the island, a mix of chick peas, coriander with a touch of […]
