Corns are often used in both Chinese or Western cooking. They are sweet and nutritious, loaded with dietary fibre and enriched with vitamin B, good for eyes. It even may help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

Its simplicity, without any fancy decoration, with the golden brown crust, buttery taste and rich texture, totally wins my heart. You can’t stop eating after tasting the first slice. Mind you, if you’re on diet, make sure you can share with some other friends, or bring it along to any parties as finger food.

One slice of the butter pound cake, with a cup of tea or coffee, brings me enough enjoyment with no regrets.

Butter and Jam Cookies

These buttery cookies were dotted and filled with bright red plum jam. The slightly tangy taste of plum jam is just right to balance the no-so-sweet cookies.

These fish and prawn pies were baked in ramekins. The fillings are creamy and juicy. Once the pies were out from the oven. Everyone in the family was so eager to dig in the flaky crust and find out what's inside their ramekin.

It won’t be wrong if I serve a pie on our dining table. My daughter is so attracted by any bakery made of puff pastry. No matter what I put inside, any kind of meat or veggies, she will quickly dig into it and taste the delicious fillings going with the fluffy pastry.

Can I say everyone in parties loves cheesecakes? If not everyone, then most people are so into trying these little cute cheesecakes. I made some for a bring-a-plate family gathering, they’re gone quickly once served on table.

Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes01

What I like the most about making cheesecakes is that I can make them well in advance, chill in fridge, then bring them along inside an insulated food bag. Then off I go for enjoying the party without any stress.

As I got a new kitchen toy – a 12-cup mini cheesecake pan recently, I can’t wait to try this nifty kitchen gadget. Baking cheesecakes turns out into a 20-minute-or-so matter. Then simply top the baked cheesecakes with some blueberry coulis, place one or two fresh blueberries for garnish.
