No Knead Purple Sweet Hokkiado Milk Bread-11

No Knead Purple Sweet Potato Hokkaido Milk Bread

October 19, 2017 | 0

As Americans share casseroles or baked goods, it turns out that the Chinese show the same care by spontaneously giving away house grown vegetables. Every fall my house is thus constantly filled with luffa squash (they’re delicious and make excellent sponges!!), bitter melon, and chives. My favorite this year were a huge bag of purple…

Hiya! So for the past few weeksmonths(!!!) I’ve slowly been vaporized by coursework, midterms, and endless deadlines that are apparently the defining feature of senior year. Oh and essays. One cannot forget about the infamous personal statement, UChicago’s (endlessly entertaining) list of essay questions, or (God forbid) Princeton’s adorable list of, quite literately, very short…

Hi everyone! How are your summers going? Mine has been a hurricane of baking, recommendations, meetings, and more baking! As it turns out, nothing good ever comes out of me being in the kitchen too long (unless washing Mt. Everest-like loads of dishes is your thing), resulting in some green puff pastry, biscuits with way…

The Common App opens in 8 days and I’ve already begun the countdown to my doom. As it turns out, in 8 days I will also be 4 days away from the bane of my life, aka college finals. Who knew that finals could be worth SO MUCH of your grade? I mean, doesn’t 45%…

No Churn Vietnamese Coffee Stracciatella Gelato

I’ve always thought “coffee” as being such an adult thing. It’s what my friend’s mother drinks in the mornings. It’s what the teacher work room smells like every morning (cough, I don’t think I’m actually supposed to know that). It’s what my papers are lined with after a teacher accidentally feel asleep grading. It’s also…

It’s the summer! I’m woefully aware that 2 weeks of summer have already gone by and the largest peep I’ve had at this place is well, nowhere to be found – unless you count here. But 3 online classes and one vacation later, I’m here, as promised, with CHERRIES and COCONUT and PIEEEEE. Fruit pies…

It’s pretty evident from my instagram that I bake a ton when exams come around. As it turns out, baking is a very effective excuse for “studying.” Can’t write more net ionic equations? Let’s bake some cookies and see the maillard reaction in effect! (and then eat them all so we can all experience the…

Hot Cross Madeleines

April 15, 2017 | 4 comments

The best part about having learned French for 4 years is being able to read authentic French recipes + being able to get recipes from actual french people. Being small and adorable (and shell shaped!), madeleines are one of my favorite french desserts so I naturally had to search up an authentic French recipe for…
