Hot Cross Madeleines-4

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…

Orange Frangipane Cake-1

Orange Cake with Almond Crumble

April 8, 2017 | 3 comments

The Beauty and the Beast was probably my first exposure to pop culture since like ever. Usually, conversations with me usually consist of: Have you heard “Hamilton”? I love (insert song) so much! Hamilton? As in the person who died in the duel with Burr? The electoral college and national bank guy?” *No, the album…

Matcha Choux Turtles-4

Ever since the tortoise and the rabbit, I’ve loved all slow moving creatures. In fact I like to think of myself as an oversized sloth, which makes for a way too easy excuse about why my calculus homework isn’t finished yet (to be real though, calculus takes legit takes forever) and my webassign only has…

Single Lady Creme Brulee

February 5, 2017 | 6 comments

I’m a bit out of practice from baking I think. Over this long hiatus, one of my more brilliant ideas was to make a creme brulee flambee, where the originally torched sugar would be instead burnt and turned into a caramely mess by combusting alcohol. And even though my brain was on chemistry for 50%…

Cynthia’s Pain d’Epices

Is it just me or are recipes with names attached 200% more interesting than those without? Maybe it’s both. Maybe it’s because names usually mean stories and stories are always interesting. My recipes usually don’t have stories attached -maybe it’s time for a recipe with a story. I wish this recipe came with a very…

My friend popped into my apartment years ago with a brightly colored basket in her hand and asked, “wanna go easter egg hunting with us?” I was 6, naive, and I barely spoke english. “Easter what?” was my reply. Nevertheless, she dragged me with them (what a great friend) and I didn’t realize until 5-ish…

Black Sesame Madeleines + Red Bean Madeleines

So it’s around this time of the year when the sky becomes grey with sadness, the grass dries yellow, and the geese flood the pond that homework, projects, and tests (but mostly projects) pile like a thick blanket, muffling all my dreams of going to bed before 12. Thus goes my sanity and my ability…

So I realized earlier this week (or last week, depending on what week you consider sunday in) that this was going to be my last post of 2015, which made me quite pensive. I can’t believe it; I still think we’re in 2012 most of the time and I’m still well, 12. It’s strangely bittersweet….

Brown Butter Pain au Chocolat-8

Brown Butter Pains au Chocolat {a step by step guide with .gifs} //pains au chocolat au beurre noisette

August 9, 2015 | 43 comments

The English translation isn’t quite right for pain au chocolat… I mean, they’re translated into chocolate croissants but the croissants aren’t chocolate like a chocolate cake. They have little batons of chocolate in them, melty, sticky and utterly delicious. I guess we’ll just have to call them brown butter pains au chocolat. Some things just…
