Kouign Amann

Kouign Amann is a funny sounding name (at least in my mind) for a delicious puff pastry. It’s French, so naturally it’s delicious and this also means that you pronounce the ‘kouign’ part as ‘kween’ or ‘kwin.’ Yep, the French sure do know how to do pastry. My first ever koiugn amann wa

Tamarind Chutney

In Singapore, when you buy frozen pre-made Indian pastries like samosas or parathas, you get a little packet of frozen tamarind chutney too. It’s not something that I’d ever tried before living in Singapore, but it is a delicious sweet and sour condiment that is kind of like an Indian

Professional Oven Cleaning by OvenU

What is your most hated household chore? I’m not going to lie, I dislike a lot of them, but my most hated is cleaning the oven. Ugh…how bad is cleaning the oven? When we moved into our new rental place, the oven was gross. It was so bad, the real estate agent actually apologised for t
