The Body Is The Temple

Plant-based is absolutely the best way to go and I go that way naturally and that diet is also compatible with my blood-type as our blood-types have a lot to do with our distinct personalities (https://misslatoya.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/blood-typepersonality-type/). In the early nineties a little over twenty years ago there was a health food store that I use [] read more »

I take good bites out of life; the chunks that I know are going to be the most nutritious and beneficial for me. I eat and live very health-wise.

A Wee Bit of Irish

I’ve been told that it is happy hour somewhere, so I might as well have a drink. Although it was enough reasoning for me in college, that’s hardly the case now. It may be a little too excessive to drink whiskey and heavy cream with my morning coffee even if it is St. Patrick’s Day. This Irish coffee mousse is a great way to be part of the party without the unwanted side affects of too much alcohol. Its also a dessert you can get away with eating anytime of the day, including breakfast. With St. Patrick’... read more »

Eat Me, Bangsar.

A few friends and I decided to go for a little food trip around Bangsar about 2-3 weeks ago (mainly at Bangsar Village Mall and the many shops at Jalan Telawi 1, 2, 3, etc.). After some research, Jac suggested that we stop by Eat Me, a dessert place next to KGB (Killer Gourmet Burgers) who shares the ownership.Sorry, no DSLR shots for this post. Oops.It's a small place with seats outside too but we prefer sitting inside as the ambiance is a little different from sitting outside. (and also cause I don't f... read more »

Nadeje, 3 Two Square.

Long story short, I received an email from Nadeje inviting me to re-feature their awesome mille crepes! Thanks for the opportunity guys. :)The sad thing is, I still don't own a car nor a P license after so long (oops) so I had to ask my mom to fetch me to the 3 Two Square Nadeje outlet.

Anise Cookies

If youve never had an anise cookie, first and foremost you have my deepest sympathies.

Soy Nut Butter Cookies

The toughest thing, for me at least, about nut allergies is missing out on peanut butter. Weve found a good alternative in unsweetened soy nut butter. We like I.M.

Just click the pic below!   It works out great for SBJ [] The post Soy Nut Butter Cookies appeared first on The Cul de Sac Gourmet. read more »

TiPsy Brew O'Coffee, Setia Walk.

After Big Spoon, we hopped to our next destination at random (well, still somewhere in Setia Walk) How do you like your coffee? Hand dripped?

Peach Pudding

A friend brought me some peaches that needed to be used within a couple days so I came up with an idea. I love Banana Pudding and I love Peaches and Cream so why not make Peach Pudding. I used my regular Banana Pudding recipe (the kind you cook from scratch) but instead of using bananas I used peaches. OMGoodness! This is so good. It isn't too sweet and you get the slight tartness from the peaches. I did make one mistake, that wasn't really a mistake but something I would change the next time I make this... read more »

Summer Fruit Cobbler

Summer is almost coming to an end and it was high time to prepare a typical summer dessert before the seasonal fruits become unavailable.You can in fact improvise and use any kind of fruit you have around.

The merge of 2 sweet fruits with 2 sour ones gave it an amazing flavour and taste. I totally loved how my apple and peach crumble turned out the other day so I cooked the ... read more »

Too Hot To Bake Cookies?

How often, have we wanted to make cookies and it was just too hot to turn on the oven? Well there has been a solution over the years, but not many are aware of it.

Many families would have hand held waffle irons made, with their family's initials or crest on n the iron. They would then hold the iron over an ope... read more »

Taking A Ride On The Orient Express!

Egg rolls are delightful and delicious for appetizers, but what about desserts? Also, do they really have to be oriental? To me, egg rolls can be filled with whatever your heart desires, and I desire something sweet and unusual. Like I always tell my friends and colleagues, I am not your every day normal chef. I have the tendency to be more of the abnormal out-of-the-box kind of chef, thinking of new ways to bring to the table, exciting and unusual ideas for the palate. Today's recipe, brings together Fr... read more »
