To be like Nigella?

Afternoon, world!

Some of you reading this might be checking out this food blog o’ mine for the first time. If you’re one of them, here’s a warm welcome and a cuppa hot chocolate and warm scone for you. It’s virtual though, so I don’t think you can taste it. Just imagine for now, ya? :0)

Yes, you read what I said in The Sunday Times interview – from that Cedele Depot blueberry almond slice I could eat for the rest of my life, to my last meal (Dad’s ayam buah keluak, durians, warm scones, a kickass tiramisu and a cuppa hot chocolate!) and my ambition to be the Nigella Lawson or Jamie Oliver of Singapore.

You can say I have big dreams! Indeed, there are plenty of castles in the clouds for me right now.

But first up, let me just thank all of you beloved readers – past and present. Thank you for all your support since this lil’ blog started in 2005. For those who’ve been buying my baked goods, thank you for trusting me! hahaa….

And while I’m at it, I might as well plug my July Bake Sale. I’m consolidating all orders and you can collect them in July.

Everything will be revealed later tonight in another post! Still finalising details 🙂

Stay tuned ya’ll!

Hey.. I really like the recipes that you post! Gonna try my hands on some of them but i saw that most of the measurements of the ingredients are in cups. May i know if there is a specific size of the cup used to measure? Or can i just get them from phoon huat?

Your new banner looks slurpalicious! : )

I’m in Melbourne now, will have to give your baking sale a miss this time round. Will order if you do have one at the end of the year!

*Congrats on your Sunday Times article too.

Yes, read your article. It’s a nice blog you got compared to myself.

A purveyor of Darkness, no i’m not here to collect your soul. But i’m here to offer that ‘kick ass’ tiramisu that you said you would want as a part of your last meal.

I’m not selling it yet, but am currently toying with that idea, and what a better way than to get feedback from someone who appreciates sweets.

Hello! Love your blog!! Thanks for the recipes, I love chefs who are more than happy to share recipes with the rest of us mere mortals. Would you be so kind as to share your nutella cup cake recipe?

Thanks all, for your support and lovely comments!

Just a quick reply to those who asked me some questions.

There’s a link to a very useful measurement equivalent website to the left of my blog. Also, you can find my nutella cupcake recipe if you use the search engine provided by blogger at the top of my blog 🙂

Two years on and wonderful people like you still read my blog! I’m thankful and promise to continue to entertain you all and erm, make you drool of course :p
