having a heat wave – creamsicle cake

July 19, 2013
Creamsicle Cake

This has been one of the hottest summers I’ve spent in New York. The rolling waves of steamy days make the endless humidity unbearable–even for someone who grew up in sub-tropical Hong Kong, known for its schvitzing spring and summers. So, you understand why I crave frozen treats. It’s easy to make popsicles, such as Strawberry-Watermelon […]

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.

Orange Nutella Sandwich Cookies

The distinct taste and scent of oranges has long claimed a place on my favorites list. As a boy, I couldn’t get enough of Pepperidge Farm’s Orange Milanos. I’d arrive home from school ravenous for a comfort-food fix before sitting down to a round of homework like a good Chinese child. Those orange and chocolate […]

Now that Halloween is behind us, we can enjoy pumpkins for their inner beauty and real purpose—consuming not carving.  Not everyone likes pumpkin, however.

 Poppyseed Cake w Passion-Fruit Curd

For the last four years, M and I have planned the same summer getaway to Ogunquit, Maine. It’s our road trip that takes us to a place of beach relaxation and good food opportunities.

Orange Muffins

As I have mentioned in the previous post, I used to associate Easter with an annual extravagant buffet luncheon with the family in Hong Kong. Now, after living in New York for years, I equate Easter with the parade of outrageous hats and relaxing breakfast/brunch with either just M or with friends. There’s something magical about […]

Orange Scented Macaroons

As much as I’ve enjoyed the Mactweets Challenges for these past few months, each one brings a dash of nervousness—a French macaron can fail for many reasons. I can control egg-white whisking, the flavor profile, and color manipulation by practice and experience.  On the other hand, I can anticipate and prepare for summer weather that’s […]

Creamsicle Macarons

When Mactweet came up with the challenge of creating a macaron based on your favorite song, I had no idea how to start, at first.
