2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How to sew bunny head? on: August 24, 2013 10:30:50 AM
Hi everyone, I am a newbie to sewing.
Today I came across these cute bunny softies that looks easy enough for beginner.  Just wondering what would the pattern be?
I suppose the bottom would sew like a round bolster pillow, a circle and a rectangle? But what about the head?

Please shed me some light if you have idea on this!  Thank you so much!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Fun and causal wall color to go with cherry cabinets? on: February 17, 2011 10:33:09 AM
Hello there,

Hello everyone!

Please help!

We just got a new place and have been struggling how to color this place with a
modern, causal and younger look and feel.  Some of the walls was painted with
rich earth tone colors (brown, red, wasabi).  The kitchen has cherry cabinets
and granite countertop, so is the bathrooms.

The current look and feel is warm and bold (feels like our parents place), but
both of us prefer lighter colors and younger/chic look and feel. Another thing
is that my husband really hate red. The house is almost brand new, so we really
don't want to do big changes.  Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance!
4  COOKING / Dessert / Buttery chestnut earl grey cake on: March 04, 2010 11:19:37 PM
Last week, I had a sudden crave for buttery buttery pound cake (also due to the butter is going to expire soon ;p). With some freshly made marron glacé in my fridge, it has to be a chestnut buttery cake. Since I am a sucker of new combination, I wanted to try a new variation. I was looking around in the pantry for inspiration, and the box of earl grey on the top shelf summoned me!

This cake, oh my, it's fragrant and delicious! First you taste the fragrant earl grey blends with the liquor flavour, then comes in the nutty chestnut and finally the buttery texture. You got to try it!

It tasted the best after a day or so sitting in the refrigerator to allow the liquor flavour sinks in.

Yes, it's a 4" tube cake pan (Serving is in the recipe, under the name)
Yes, I used regular vegetable oil, you can use any light flavour oil (so it doesn't interfere the cake flavour)
You don't flour or grease the pan, seriously, the cake will stick there while suspended on a bottle it's the nature of chiffon cake.  You can use a wooden knife or spatula to run around the side to remove it from the pan afterwards.

Hope this hope!

Good news for those who cannot eat gluten! A chiffon cake for you!

This version of chiffon cake is made of glutinous rice flour and rice flour. Due to the nature of rice texture, the cake turn out to be very soufflé-like: light, fluffy and almost melt in your mouth.

Recently I am once again to love the classic chocolate + orange combo, and so I paired the cake with the candied orange peel. This is a holiday/thank you gift for the creative director in my office. From what I can recall, this combination seems to be widely acceptable for most guys, yeah, even the manly men ;p

The other day, I was searching for house warming gift for our Vegan friend, hmm....how about some steamed goodies?!
The steam rolls came out good! It's soft but still chewy! Plus, I finally figured it out how to make two different flavours at a time! Woohoo!

I had tried to roll as thin as possible and hope make more thin layers, but seems like it is impossible to do that by hands! My arms were sore afterward T_T I guess I need a pasta machine.....hmmmmm XD

9  COOKING / Dessert / Gluten-free chestnuts matcha roll (using glutinous rice flour) on: November 19, 2009 11:52:30 PM

Gluten-free chestnuts matcha roll: This is a variation of the classic Chinese banana red bean roll using glutinous rice flour. I mix the matcha powder to the glutinous rice flour and use chestnut paste instead of red bean paste Smiley

10  COOKING / Dessert / Chestnuts fever: mont blanc + marrons glacés + chocolate chestnut soufflé on: November 10, 2009 09:22:30 PM
As the cool autumn breeze arrive, my long-waited favorite fall ingredient is back! Last weekend when I was on my regular weekend grocery shopping guess what I saw? I saw CHESTNUTS! 2.99/lb!??!!! Really!? SERIOUS??! And they are in jumbo size too???!!! I immediately threw two bags of chestnuts into my shopping cart. Ha!!

marrons glacés is french candied chestnuts.  Now I finally understand why are marrons glacés so expensive. It's a very time consuming process! But these marrons glacés totally worth the time and effort I spent....SO GOOD!

mont blanc is a classic french chestnut pastry/dessert.  My version of mont blanc is composed of a delicate macaron-like meringue, with a layer of crème marrons on top of it, wrapped by the soft and creamy crème fouette and finally topped with generous crème chantilly aux marrons. A word to say: marvelous!
