Oh yay, Eid Al-Fitr is just around the corner. For celebrating it this year, I decided to embrace the Indonesian culinary tradition in its entirety. “So, how do Indonesians celebrate Eid Al-Fitr from culinary perspective exactly?” I hear you ask. Well, for “Lebaran” (that’s what we call Eid Al-Fitr) where we came from typically we have a […]

Zucchini + Cheddar Scones

There is this tricky business about practicing Ramadan in the Summer time. I found that my eating/food consumption power is greatly diminished.

Zucchini bread

I actually have another post brewing in the WordPress dungeon, but since I am not done yet with the goods, I will delay that for the weekend. Tonight I am putting up a quick one: Zucchini bread.

Cheddar + Hoppy + Mustard Pull-Apart Rye Bread

What do you do when it’s a day-off and but the sky is pouring miserably outside? Another stupid construction is going on 3 floors above you – ever so loudly, but the wet and cold Winter day discouraged you to leave the apartment. What to do? I tapped on Flipboad on my new favorite ‘cookbook’, […]

Ginger bread

My family was over to visit this past November. My sister flew in from Switzerland, Mama and Papa flew in from Indonesia. My apartment had never been happier. It was filled with laughter and warmth. Quoting Mehameha, it was filled with the kind of warmth that can only come from families. Something was always going […]
