Chewy Peppermint Bark Chocolate Cookie

Happy Sunday y'all!! It has been a while since I last posted on a Sunday. Today must be your lucky day.. or is it mine? Gasps!! Just the other day, I decided to try to make an effort to leave the office sharp straight after work and I did. My colleagues were speechless as I am usually the one who would be the last to leave for the day. I suggested to them to buy a lottery ticket ;).. LOL..

I have a couple of posts lined up, and would like to try to post them all up before Christmas. At the same time, I would like to share with you some classic ideas for this Holiday Season. Here's a really simple recipe and does not take up a lot of time in the kitchen too. Not to mention it's filled with all the gooey dark chocolate goodness. As you munch into the CHEWY PEPPERMINT BARK CHOCOLATE COOKIE, there's that hint of tingling minty sensation too from Ghirardelli's Peppermint Bark.

Pecan Pie with Salted Caramel

After some dissertation, I am once again back and will soon be able to get back to my regular posting schedule. Lots has been happening the past few months where I was mainly focusing a lot towards my growth in my work. Now that it has finally slowed down a little, I could breathe with ease and I feel like floating in the air too...dancing to every single upbeat Christmas song I hear and my personal favourite has to be the Jazz-Blues, Traditional Pop genre. I grew up listening to wonderful singers like Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, just to name a few. However, I do have a current personal favourite too. I have been hooked to this wonderful singer ever since his first album. Perhaps it comes as no surprise to my friends, that at this time of the year, I will be caught humming and tapping to the tune of Winter Wonderland, listening to the smooth-silky voice of Michael Bublé.

Since I'm in the mood for the holidays, let me present to you my all time favourite nutty PECAN PIE with SALTED CARAMEL is a classic. There may not be a lot of people around me know, that I have a soft spot for them. Just a slice of this luxuriously crunchy, caramelized aroma and taste pie is enough to make your knees wobble. Pronounced either as "pee-CAN" or by some as pee-KAHN", this is one Classic Pie that is perfect for the holidays. So start cranking up the oven peeps!

Vanilla Custard Crepe Cake

After several attempts over the week, I am finally back up posting. This post had me excited and I desperately wanted to share it with you so badly. Have you ever been excited about something that you wish you could share it in an instant? I suppose luck isn't at my side as I kept having network issue. Oh! the agony.

Moving along, this is somewhat out of my comfort zone, and certainly well worth the effort. French Crepes are pancakes too, and in a much thinner and lighter form. Lately, there has been a craze here in Asia and possibly this originate either from the French or the Japanese or maybe a fusion of both. Anyhow, where it came from now has certainly driven me to further dig up the roots as they have come up with something so brilliant, transforming these light crepes into cakes. Layers and layers of french crepe, slathered with custard cream and topped with jam, glaze, or as simple as powdered sugar makes this my new found love for cakes. To start, and to many more to come, I am starting off with the basic classic love for VANILLA CUSTARD CREPE CAKE.
