10 Baking tips and tricks you won’t find in recipe books

Who turns down an invitation to a baking workshop? Definitely NOT ME! I was like a little kid who could barely sleep the night before the Basic Cakes workshop at Feed 5000 Kitchen Studio. That was how excited I was to go.

Easy Recipes: Baked chicken breast with cheesy greens on the side

Before we start cooking chicken breast, let me ask you this: What’s your plan this Valentine’s day? I’m making a suggestion here. For some people, going out on Valentine’s day may not be in the budget, and honestly, that’s okay. Most of the dates Jay and I have happen right here in our home. Why? Well, sometimes, it’s just  too pricey. Before you start DM-ing me affordable romantic places to go to, let me assure you, I have already bookmarked them all.

Easy Recipes: No-brainer chicken pizza for kids

I just blogged about my first time to cook lasagna, I didn’t think anyone would be interested with the pizza, but a handful of people seemed to be. So, I decided to share how I prepared the chicken pizza I served the kids for our New Year’s eve meal.
