About a month ago, Younger Daughter & I whipped up a batch of sweet potato & cranberry cupcakes which were surprisingly more-ish.
Knowing that the things we love to eat are also good for us is such a bonus! For example, did you know that sweet potatoes are a good source of Vitamin C, which is great for all sorts of healthful benefits, including maintaining the skin’s youthful plasticity (I need all the help I can get in this department)? They are also a good source of Vitamin D (contributes to bone health), iron (supports immune system), magnesium (promotes relaxation as an anti-stress mineral) and carotenoids (strengthens eyesight & boosts immunity).

Loving Husband and I love to run, and we love to eat! So, when we have a chance to run together we combine both: running to new & interesting places to eat! sometimes by design, sometimes by serendipity. Continue reading “Running to Eat”
I love blueberries! so I am very fortunate that we can get these tiny powerhouses of healthy deliciousness all year round. On the off chance that I can’t get them from the supermarket, there is always the frozen option to use in our baking. Continue reading “Very Blue (Vegan) Blueberry Muffins”

I have never had a smoothie bowl before though, that is, using a smoothie as a base and then piling lots of goodies on top. So, this is a conservative first attempt at The Smoothie Bowl.

I found a gem in one of my favourite cupcake resources: Cupcakes with Attitude. Continue reading “Sweet Potato Cupcakes: an unexpected deliciousness!”
I love breakfast!
Never thought I’d hear myself saying this as I really am not a morning person. I still can’t eat first thing when I wake up, but a couple of hours later, I really enjoy this first meal of the day. And breakfast foods, I could eat them all day long: pancakes, oatmeal, omelettes, French toast … what am I saying, I do eat breakfast foods for lunch, and sometimes, even for dinner!

It’s been a while since we’ve taken a road trip; the girls have been asking and finally, we are on our way! We will leave on Monday, 1 Aug, 5am and should get into Ipoh at 2pm after a leisurely drive. Continue reading “Road Trip: Back to Ipoh we go!”
After our last visit to Dazzling Cafe, we’ve been dreaming of going back to try more desserts. We made it back this past week with friends and after much dithering over the menu, I had the Valrhona Chocolate Waffle. Continue reading “Mochi in my Waffle”
