comments: It tasted better when Emi made it....hmmm...and i used lemon juice instead of lime juice....added too much lemon juice onto the tops of the puddings and my dinner companions actually tot it was syrup and drunk a whole teaspoon...haha...should have taken pictures of their expressions....!! Taste of this dessert...the top layer tastes like baked cheese cake and the bottom, like a milky creme brulee...or sweet chawan mushi!!
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
