“A moment on your lips, a lifetime on your hips” – unknown

Whoever came up with that phrase deserves an applause. Even though there is some truth in it, but that doesn’t mean that we should restrict ourselves from consuming the food we love. Looking through dessert recipes online often scares me with the amount of butter and sugar that is being used. No doubt sugar is important in the Millard reaction, I’ve been on a quest to reduce the amount of sugar and butter used without compromising the taste and texture of the dessert. So here I am to share some of the healthier recipes that I’ve adapted.




Brownies are one of the most versatile desserts to make. They go well with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and it’s the perfect snack all day long. Having a good brownie recipe is must for every dessert lover.



Banana bread and muffins

I must admit, I have an obsession for banana breads. I don’t even like to eat the fruit itself but when it’s made into a bread, cake or muffin, I will gobble it up as soon as possible. Read on about the different creations you can make with this high energy fruit.



Chocolate baking

Chocolates… I can’t go a day without having a piece of chocolate. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favourite childhood books and ever since then, I knew that I can always count on chocolate to make the best desserts.





My love for cakes is one of the reasons why I decided to pick up baking. My dream has always been to bake birthday cakes for my family and friends – they also served as my guinea pigs. But after multiple attempts, I am happy to share some of my favourite cake recipes.




A cookie a day, keeps the doctor away – yeap! That’s right and that’s how we roll in the shire.


Cheesecakes and tiramisu 

Cheesecakes and tiramisu are one of my favourite desserts of all time. Not only are they easy to make, they are often a hit a parties.


Cupcakes, muffins & puddings

Simple, easy and quick to make. If you have a bunch of over-ripe fruits that you don’t know what to do with, these recipes are the ones to turn to.



Pies and tarts

Pies and tarts are one of the best dinner party desserts to make. It’s bound to impress and these little bite size makes it impossible to stop at one.



Savory foods 

Besides being a dessert queen, I do enjoy savoury foods as well. Scones are one of my favourite foods to make. Check out my cauliflower based pizza recipe too!
