Madeliene for the first time ever. The outcome is good. Crispy outside, soft inside and little doom at the back checked. Go with black coffee, heaven. #homebaking #madeleine #vanillamadeleine #coffeemate #dessert #afternoontea #coffeecake
We love Hamilton Garden. Especially this Japanese Garden. Once you walk in here, you can suddenly feel peace and calmness. All the messy stuff in your heart disappears. #hamiltongardens #hamiltongarden #hamiltongardensnz #hamilton #hamiltonnz #newzealand #botanicgarden #weekend

Time to preserve some Gisborne lemon with some nice honey for this coming summer. We love to mix the lemon honey with sparkling water and ice! Too good to have in summer. #summersorted #gisbornelemons #gisborne #lemonhoney #lemon #honey #jfriendhoney #sparklingwater #summerdrinks #wellington #newzealand
Moon Festival or Mid-autumn Day is two weeks away. My little ones asks for baked mooncake this year, as I made ice-skin mooncake last year. He asked for custard filling, and the other one in the family asks for red bean filling. So what I did? Made a custard filling with cured egg yolk zest, and that goes into the red bean paste/ white lotus seeds paste. Should be really delicious! Don’t think we can save those mooncakes until 24th Sep. Of course will share them with my friends and family as well. #mooncakes #redbean #redbeanpaste #lotusseeds #lotusseedpaste #homemademooncakes #custardfilling #custard #curedeggyolk #curedeggyolks #liusha #月餅 #中秋節
Fresh cut rosemary from my garden. Lovely butter from Westgold. Tasty cheese from Meadow Fresh. Made loads of cheese sticks for family to snack on. The whole house is full of amazing aroma after baking. And I can’t stop eating them. #cheesesticks #cheesestick #cheesestraw #cheesestraws #homebaking #homebakingrocks #westgold #westgoldbutter #meadowfresh #meadowfreshcheese #cheese #cheesesnack #cheesesnacks
A kid was begging for brownie and cookies for weeks. Well, a mum’s duty never offline. So I decided to make Brownie chocolate cookies which combines his two requests to one, makes my job easier. #brownies #brownie #chocolatebrownie #chocolatecookies #browniechocolate #browniechocolatecookies #chocolate #wittakers #westgoldbutter #wellington #newzealand #homebakingrocks #homebaking
Fresh baked pineapple buns! I was always confused about the name when I was a kid, and always looking for pineapple inside the buns. Now I know they are called pineapple buns only because they look like pineapple! The best way to eat them is cut them in half when hot, then put a slice of cold butter in between the layers, and have a big bite of everything! #pineapplebuns #boluobao #homebaking #freshyeast #freshyeastbread #snack #brioche
Happy Father’s Day from 10,000km away. #fathersday
No sourdough this week. Too much left over bread. Marshmallow this week. Always wanted to make marshmallow, but every time when I think about the sticky sticky stuff, I give up. Brave enough to make them today. Failed at the first try, cause I didn’t slow down the speed of the mixer when I was pulling in the sugar syrup. Disaster, you can imagine. But never give up, it is something I my blood. Succeed the second time. Used a piping bag to avoid sticky and messy as much as I can. Made two flavors, vanilla and strawberry. It was a speed challenge. Not too bad for the first time, although they don’t look very appetizing. Had a lazy day today, it is right. The more you relax the more tied you will get. #mashmallow #mashmallows #vanillamashmallow #strawberrymashmallow #fluffymashmallow #homemademashmallows #homamade #lovehomemade #wellington #newzealand
