Orange Poppy Buttermilk Scones

Over the past week, I have been toying around with several ideas to share with you on what we could do to celebrate this Valentines Day. I started with a Breakfast Coffee Doughnut post, for those who still want to stay in bed with a cup of coffee or just wonder around the house in their PJs, 

Personally I am a gal who loves to cook and bake and if my other half cooks or bakes for me, that would literally make my heart skips a beat. Yes, I have always been that kind of person that admires a man who is brave enough to put on an apron and experiment in the kitchen. There is just something sexy about a guy who is not afraid to try new flavours and work with fresh ingredients. To add on, he may even style his own food and snap a photo of it. For today's post, it all about spending a little quality time outdoors. Here's another great idea if you like to get some fresh air, and after a light hike, you could always sink in to a simple and fresh meal. Bring a long a picnic basket and enjoy the moment. First item in my picnic basket are these moist ORANGE POPPY BUTTERMILK SCONES.

Breakfast Coffee Doughnuts

Happy New Year 2015 folks! It's now beginning of February. Can you believe that? Boy! time seems to be slipping through my fingers daily. One moment, I was busy prepping for Christmas, New Years and now my family started talking about Chinese New Year preparations too. Not to mention, Valentines Day seems to be just round the corner. To me, every day is Valentines Day, depending how you see it of course. If you're like me, who may not be keen on paying for overpriced food on a fixed menu, couldn't tolerate a rude waiter or waitress, couldn't get a reservation or better yet would just like to spend simple quality time, fret not. I got you covered with 5 ideas, that I think it not only pleases both you, and your man and for parents alike, you can spend the day with your kids. After all, it's about showing what love is.

First stop, have a coffee or milk with these Breakfast Coffee Doughnuts. Be in your PJ's, have them in bed, or not, the idea is to be casual, grab a semi-light bite to wake up those senses.

Classic Vanilla Bean Cake

It's birthday season, and with Christmas around the corner, there has just been so much on my mind to do. Lots and lots of treats to bake plus an entire long to-do list is in place. However, it sure feels like there isn't much time for me to check them off my list. Apart from trying to get myself back to food blogging full time, there has been 2 exciting projects that I am working on on the side too. I am certainly eager to share them with you here on my blog. More details to come on the next coming posts once everything has been finalized.

Moving along.. Recently, I had a chance to surprised one of my mother's very close schoolmate, with my very own baked treat. Since, I wasn't sure if anyone had any allergy, but was certain they were not allergic to wheat, I decided to serve them a CLASSIC VANILLA BEAN CAKE.

Opera Cake & Chic & Gorgeous Treats is back!

After a long dissertation, which seemed forever; I do have a valid reason. This year 2014 had been a tough but fruitful year. Long story short, I was going through changes at work, like role changes, new team, new processes etc. So I made a really tough decision, where I decided to place my blogging on hold for a moment, while I figure out what do I do with my work-life balance. It may not necessary be a wise decision, however, throughout the months, I found what I would love to focus in the coming year 2015. I am excited that I don't think I can contain it any longer in myself.
