Ginger Cherry Cake

When M told me we were going to his business associate’s house in Hudson, New York for lunch last weekend, I didn’t realize I was going to meet the ultimate home owner couple.

come together – ‘ginger milk’ cake

'Ginger Milk' Cake

While working on my last post, Vanilla Malt Milk Cake, I couldn’t help thinking about the ginger milk I adored during my childhood—and I get to try again during each visit to my family in Hong Kong. It’s a Chinese dessert that consists of three simple ingredients–ginger, milk and sugar—but the magic comes from kitchen […]

cold fusion – pineapple-coconut stack cake

Pineapple-Coconut Stack Cake

This cake is the culmination of a few ideas that co-mingled in the most opportune way. It all started with something called the Tennessee Stack Cake that I’ve read about a while ago. The fact that it’s made with layers of cookies–not cake–intrigued me.

Matcha-Azuki Cake w Azuki Meringue Icing

The annual tribal rite known as the Easter Parade in NYC brings out the colorful imaginative side in natives and visitors.  There’s the array of hats–traditional, whimsical, avant-garde, and down-right clever—during the ceremonial walk through Fifth Avenue, the central gathering place for the return of this diaspora. The fanciful pastel clothing flutters in the early […]

Ginger 'Nian Gao' aka Ginger Mochi Cannelés

The Chinese New Year and the Year of the Snake will start on Feb 10th. For the last two years, I’ve co-hosted a Chinese New Year Potluck with my partner in crime, Jackie, but this year, we decided to take a break.

Citrus Fruitcake

Seriously? Fruit Cake? That unwanted holiday treat that’s been fodder for every late-night comedian? Perhaps only less desired than aunt’s strangely knitted sweaters when you were growing up, it’s the gift that gets regifted into infinity with gooey sweetness.

Ginger Panna Cotta w Black Sesame Geleé

I have many fond memories of family rituals, most of which involved food, to no surprise—the Sunday congee brunch, weeknight dinners at home that ran like clockwork one dish after another, weekend afternoon tea and shopping with my grandmother, among others.

Almond Pear-Blueberry Cake

When I posted my Spiced Apple Cake last year for Passover, I expressed my deepest desire to be invited to a Passover seder. (To get in the right mood, I did write the post while sampling bitter herbs.) The response was overwhelming–I received invites from all over the twitterverse. Though most of them were from […]

Ginger-Lime Coconut Scones

The hardest thing about returning from a vacation is focusing on everyday life when your thoughts are on a different continent. It took almost two weeks to snap back into reality. Of course, sorting hundreds of photos I had taken during the trip didn’t help a bit with the re-entry.

Caramelized Apple Gingerbread

November and half of December have been an unfashionably warm on the East coast, so it’s taken some effort to summon the holiday spirit.
