I have stopped baking green tea butter cake for sometime after I was exposed to many other new recipes. However a special request from my hubby two days ago have brought the good fond memory which used to be one of my signature dessert.
I have not bake for two weeks ever since I start my fasting :) Life without baking is so dull. With this special request from my loved one, I have found an excuse to heat up my oven again, hehehe....
Red kidney beans
Next month (April 2013), it will be my turn to host this fantastic event and I am glad to announce my theme - "CORN". Well, since it is going to be my first time, honestly, I am kind of nervous myself. I would appreciate any support and constructive advice that could help to turn this event a happy and successful one. Thank you very much in advance and have fun !
