I'm excited that my first bake of year 2018 turned out successful and tasted nicer than I expected! For someone like me who don't bake often enough and only has 2hrs+ to spare in the mornings, each successful attempt at baking something that my boys can enjoy eating is so precious to me!

I've been wanting to make some home made snacks for CNY (Chinese New Year).
With limited time in the mornings while the boys are in school, pineapple tarts and kueh bangkit are certainly not on my to-do list.
