Jaffa Chocolate Mousse

By • Mar 1st, 2012 • Category: Desserts

So much has happened since I last updated this blog with food. {NOTE: Not that I will promise more this year (am not a big believer in undelivered promises) but I have two other dishes on my laptop waiting to be blogged. So in March, at least, it will be a foodblog feast!}. Mr. G […]



Citrus Delicious Pudding

By • Jun 1st, 2010 • Category: Desserts

This is the dessert I made when G’s uncle came to visit. The citrus pudding was a great way to end dinner after a hearty meaty meatloaf. On a totally unrelated matter, my best friend got married last Saturday. Carrie and I have known each other for half our lives. But it’s not just about […]



Doing the Fig Jig

By • Mar 5th, 2010 • Category: Desserts

I look forward to Saturdays. Saturdays are reserved for getting the weekly groceries. Last week  the supermarket had figs on special. Hmmm… Specials. I love Specials, the Chinese in me just can’t help it. We have been jet-setting in February (which is why it has been so quiet around here lately). So to kick-start things, […]



Plum Galette

By • Jan 28th, 2010 • Category: Desserts

Having spent most of my life in a non-seasonal country, I’m fascinated by the way things grow in a timely manner in Australia. The last of the blood plums are picked but the green apples are just starting to ripen. I like to think that it’s a little bit like life, no? With science these […]



Continental Lemon Cheese Tart with Stewed Plums

By • Jan 21st, 2010 • Category: Desserts

A girl friend and I were checking out old school and uni photos yesterday, some dated to more than 10 years ago. We were amazed at how baby-faced some of us looked and how some have simply ‘transformed’ themselves. We talked about the old days and how we have grown over the years. A mutual […]



low-fat peach + ricotta cheesecake

By • Oct 12th, 2009 • Category: Desserts

I remember my first bite of peach. An uncle brought a box of Australian summer fruits fresh out from the plane and onto our dinner table. My whole family gathered around the table, savoring the heavenly scent that waft from the box. There were cherries, nectarines, plums and those beautiful pink peaches, tender Smells in […]



Orange Almond Cake

“Hi, I’m Mable and I am a cleanoholic.” That’s right people, I’m addicted to cleaning. It’s a sad, sad fact that I enjoy tidying cupboards, scrubbing toilets, doing the laundry. Blog this!

Banana Pancakes

Sunday is… time to hit the snooze button and allow yourself to sleep in. time to enjoy the sun and breeze in your hair while you stroll to the milk bar for the Sunday’s newspaper. Blog this!

Bubur Nasi Hitam

By • Aug 21st, 2008 • Category: Desserts

Bubur nasi hitam or black rice pudding is definitely a personal favourite. It’s a Malaysian (some argues Thai) dessert, always almost served warm with a drizzle of coconut milk. Mom usually made it on a weekend night in a slow cooker, so come morning, there would be a lovely aroma of pandan (screwpine leaves) wafting […]
