♥ Cherry Chocolate Gooey Blondie ♥



Gooey...chewy...hmmm! These blondie bars are full of caramel flavor.



The soft brown sugar has made its caramelized flavor, giving a very sticky texture. 


The combination of cherry and chocolate reminds me of black forest cake. I used a cherry preserve which mostly has whole cherry in it, but if you only have the jam, swirl them into the batter.

♥ Honey Walnut Shrimps ♥



Honey walnut shrimp is an interesting American-style Chinese food I have come across during my exchange at San Francisco. It is a combination of sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy, which is common in form of takeaway.



It consists of shrimps coated in an egg-white-corn-starch batter, deep fried to golden brown and toss together in a creamy sweet mayo dressing, serves with more caramelized walnuts.


This honey walnut shrimp is so easy to make and it is so much healthier than takeout! You can control the among and calorie of the creamy honey sauce by using low-fat mayonnaise and light milk.

♥ Kit Kat Hazelnut Cookies ♥



It has been a while since I baked some fresh, soft and chewy cookies. My family and friends miss them. 



When it comes to soft cookies, I always look for oatmeal, nuts which add a contrary crunchy texture. The Kit Kat chocolate bars are chopped into 1 inch size and I just throw them into the cookie dough.


Nom nom nom! They are so delicious! Hazelnut plus chocolate, how does that sound?
Oh please! Can I have a glass of cold milk? :)
