Finally, I think I sort of know the food that she prefers (okay fingers crossed lol)! Gave her Kiwi fruit + zucchini yesterday and she seemed happy to eat that. This morning I tried Apple spinach zucchini purée and she was happy too! Oh yay! Though I am a fan of blw, I think I'd just try to get her to try tasting food first - she's always eager to throw food down the high chair 😂 oh well! #sgparents
Not too sure if you are tired of seeing cupcakes and muffins on my IG 😂 chocolate chiffon cupcakes for tea today. Been wondering if I shd restart the oven for selling.... but still remained as a thought 😝 Cupcakes piped with vanilla and chocolate whipped cream, topped with fresh fruits. The grapes are there because the Husband bought them instead of blueberries 😂 (Men!!) #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #sgcupcakes #hokkaidochiffoncupcake #chiffoncupcakes #bakersofsgp #bakestagram #foodgawker #petitejoybakes
So happy to receive this box from @playlexue a few days back! Glad to have made this Friend who's as introvert as me 😂 Learnt so much from her on parenting methods and learn through play methods. It feels like 酒逢知己千杯少😝Yay that she's started her @playlexueshop so I hope I can get Chinese learning stuff from her soon! When it comes to learning Chinese for the toddler, I trust Joey since she was a qualified Chinese teacher! Luckily my Chinese used to be A1, so 奇怪的造句还是难逃我的法眼😝😝😝 #notsponsoredposthor
Orange Nutella swirl muffins a few days back. I wished I had made some of these last night, since today it's mummy vs 2 cranky, unwell children (and my 3rd time typing this!!). These muffins have a slight tang, prob frm the yogurt used, and goes quite well with the sweet Nutella.

Trying to revisit older recipes of chiffon cupcakes that I've tried. Still can't decide if I love fluffy ones, or moist and cottony ones 😂 Used some lemon curd whipped cream and topped with a little dollop of lemon curd. So I am guessing more chiffon cupcakes to come in the next 2 wks 😝 #sgcake #sgbake #sgbaker #sgbakes #sgcupcakes #hokkaidocupcake #chiffoncupcakes #chiffon #cupcakes #lemoncurd #bakelife #whati8today #foodgawker #foodstagram #bakestagram #bakersofsgp #baking #petitejoybakes
Join this giveaway by @playlexue for Chinese name kit for kiddos!! Looks so much like fun with all the Colours and activities to learn their Chinese names ✌🏻#sgparents #sgparenting #sgparentbloggers
Tried to frost the cupcakes with the toddler for her grandmas last night and it was so funnily horrible 😂 Decided to save some cupcakes and do it myself .. using ingredients at home, managed to do a whipped chocolate ganache frosting with some fondant decorations and gold dust. Anyhow shaped the ribbon roses and leaves muahahah. The piping looks off because of the hardened ganache - wasn't patient to wait till it's softened since I am feeling a lil under the weather. Blessed Mother's Day! #mothersday #mothersdaycupcakes #chocolateganache #cupcakes #petitejoybakes
From scratch Japanese curry for dinner tonight! Recipe from @justonecookbook for the curry roux as well as curry recipe. Just used oil instead of butter for the roux, and it works well too! I find the scent of the garam masala a little too strong for me, but it's yummy! #justonecookbook #japanesecurry #dinner #sghomecook #homecooked #homecooking
Let me try to catch up on comments later 😉 Received a SMS on an order yesterday and I was really freaked out since I don't keep much baking supplies alrdy, and had to scramble to get cupcake boxes! But all is well, and the customer is happy with the cupcakes (picture) 😂 Lychee Rose chiffon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and decorated w some edible lustre dust for the luxe look 💕 #sgcupcakes #cupcakes #lycheerose #nielsenmassey #sgbake #sgbakes #whatibakedtoday #onthetable #sgbaker #bakelife #bakersofsgp #bakestagram #baking #sgcake
5 min no-knead bread 😄 Soft and fluffy inside with crispy exterior. Tastes like those old school deep fried buns 💕#nokneadbread
Updated with the recipe of this red velvet cake I've made some time back 😋 Sometimes I wish life is easy and simpler, but it can be so tough when we go through transitions and upgrades. Sadly to say that being considerate to others can be taken for granted so many times - I don't wanna be taking the extra effort to be considerate anymore, esp when it's being taken for granted. So drained, so tired, so exhausted beyond words. My kindness and extra miles now reserved solely only for nice ppl who appreciate it.
Tried to make green Chili the 1st time! Recipe from @sonianll 😋 Waiting to see how it goes aft a couple of hours!
Made dinner on a rare weekend night. Only took photo of this steamed fish because everyone else started eating 😭Life of a mum! Drizzled the steamed fish w some garlic oil and fried garlic before serving, and topped w spring onion garnish. So happy w the spring onion tool I bought from Daiso! I can now haz curly spring onion 😂 #sghomecook #steamfish
JTS: okay, so my social media detox sort of failed. I tried to pull myself away frm social media and reduced phone/laptop usage, and hasn't really been doing much work because am feeling too burnt out. So, I am sorry that I've been (and prob would be) quite inactive on IG. And here, some marshmallow popcorns I made some weeks back. These popcorns are delicious, and less sweeter than store bought. I've used coconut oil, Demerara sugar, melted marshmallow, desiccated coconut, nuts and dried cranberries. It was a hit with the picky Husband and toddler! #popcorn #homemade
Recipe for steamed cupcake is updated #ontheblog 😄 Original recipe frm @justonecookbook It's soft and fluffy, and quick to make! My fav go-to item for breakfast or snack when I am solo parenting the 2 girls, coz it's so quick to make! #foodgawker #mushipan #steamedcupcakes #steamcake #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #bakelife #bakestagram #onthetable #chocolate #8dayseat #bakersofsgp #petitejoybakes #justonecookbook
Breakfast for the hubby today: 5 min no-knead bread, sausage and salad 💕 And I get to eat the same today muahahaha! #breakfast #breakfastbox #sgcook #hubbybreakfast #nokneadbread #cherienomsbreakfast
Decided to start a section talking about what I hv learnt and discovered about baking and ingredients. First up, about the different kind of flour, including bleached and unbleached ones, as well as my preferred choice of flour ➡️ cherienoms.com #linkinbio #bakingtips #bakingbasics #bakelife
Some of my friends would ask me if it's worth to get a bread machine. For me yes! Though I have not been baking bread from scratch till the end with the machine, I find it convenient to knead the dough + first proof in it. Here you can see how I do it. Except that I forgot to video the part where I do the shaping and rolling, thus the abrupt jump to dough in the bread tin 😂 Hope you'd enjoy watching this! #breadmaking #breadmachine #panasonicsg #homebaker #homemade #bread #foodvideo
Honestly, this motherhood thing is like a rollercoaster - up and down; high and Low. And I am struggling so much to cope with the daily stuff of just being a mum and Wife, that I think I lose myself, sadly. I lost my identity to the piles of neverending laundry; I lost my identity to keeping up with grocery shopping & meal prep; I lost my identity in scrubbing the toilet floor. Would you be surprised to know that I am handling most of the chores at home, except 1 weekday when the cleaning Aunty comes? I am so exhausted beyond words, yet I Savour the remaining time I have with my last baby. Sigh..... sometimes I wish I have more empathetic friends who truly can understand what it is like to be parenting without a village, who can reach out to me for a hug without expecting much in return.
Ok, so meimei eats later than jiejie 😅 I e tried to start blw once she turned 6 months old. However it failed badly - prob she's just not ready to eat. Plus she learnt how to throw when she's 6 months old! I have been giving her mashed food on spoon to just taste the Flavours, and she just didn't like to eat 😏 Today I decided to try steamed Apple wedges with light sprinkle of cinnamon and she loves it! Cinnamon made the Apple slightly sweeter, and it feels like Apple pie! 🍎 #blw #blwideas #7monthsold #sgparents #sgparenting #babyledweaning #babyledweaningideas
I never knew it can be so challenging to cook this simple Japanese curry rice, with a (Super sticky) 7m old baby! Recipe of Japanese curry frm @justonecookbook Awesome as always! #sgcook #japanesecurry #curryrice #kareraisu #homecooking #homecook #onthetable #dinner #justonecookbook
Happy 36th (in advance) birthday! I am consoling myself that at least the cake looks like store bought 😂 Kept 1 cup for our cleaning auntie to try tmr 🙈
Since mango is in season, wanted to make mango mousse cake for the hubby's birthday. Since he doesn't like anything butter or milky, it's quite difficult to make a birthday cake. I thought perhaps he would like some mango mousse, and double confirm triple confirm with him 😂 Earlier on the toddler n me tried the cup ones and I conclude it's too milky for him. Now the awkward moment, like, err do I celebrate his birthday with this Kek?! 😂 #mangomousse #mangomoussecake #moussecake #homemade #homebaking #homebaker #whatibakedtoday #onthetable #foodstagram #foodblogger #bakelife #bakestagram #foodgawker #flatlay #cake #sgcake #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #petitejoybakes
Hot cross buns a few days ago. Went for the Easter service today, and was reminded of His goodness, how He has come to redeem us. #hotcrossbuns #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #bakelife #bakestagram #foodgawker #foodblogger #foodstagram #foodie #nokneadbread #ontheblog #onthetable
