There’s an unsaid tradition in our family. For most of the year, American butter cakes and cookies are good and well. But when it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, and celebrations, a special cake is always freshly ordered from the local Korean bakery- Seeang Cream Cake, otherwise known as Korean Fresh Cream Cake.

Lemon Yogurt Cake

I’ve been meaning to make this cake since September of last year. Oops. Big mistake. This is possibly one of my favorite cakes ever. I baked it in different pans than the recipe outlines, and lowered the baking time to 20-30 minutes. Besides the fact that it is health conscious, with lots of yogurt to […]

For some odd reason every year I can never pin down the exact date of Thanksgiving. Is it the third week? Last week? Thursday, Friday? Rats. Then I figured out an easier way. Thanksgiving is getting close when the molasses and pumpkin start getting sold out at the grocery store. Will I be making a […]

Cupcakes are funny things. While it’s super easy to make a so-so homemade cake, a stellar, moist, non-eggy cake with a perfect crumb? Not so much.

Orange, so orange. When I was still in my mum’s tummy, some decades ago, she had a enormous craving for oranges. Boxes and boxes of them. Navels, clementines, mandarins, you name it.

If you didn’t know by now, I’m small. Short. Little. Whatever you want to call it. Being the oldest of three, in a family of five, I’m the shortest. It’s sad, I know.
