Let’s celebrate the return of Season 6 of MasterChef Australia with some fun cupcakes, shall we?

I dare say that these cupcakes are the prettiest ones I have ever made. To ensure the cupcakes are dairy free, I have adorned them with a soft, pillowy and slightly caramelised meringue frosting. This beautiful frosting was a symbol of me being on cloud nine. Okay, that’s totally cheesy ha! Adrenaline of excitement must be still running while I was typing out this post.

[Recipe] Chinese Ginger & Leek Chicken Stir Fry

This is my teeny tiny twist to my favourite dish from Chinese takeaway – the ginger & spring onion (scallion) chicken stir fry, which I have substituted the spring onions with a leek.

This batch of stir fry was a generous one in terms of portion size. This came about when there were discounted chicken tenderloins for about $8+ per kilo at Harris Farm Markets. Forgetting the fact that it was just two people in the Fuss Free Cooking household as well as I will be traveling to Melbourne in two days, I brought 1.5kg home!  I used 500g for chicken biryani and the rest for this to make this speedy chicken stir fry, a couple hours before boarding the flight.

Here is another way to stay warm in the Fuss Free Cooking household – baking!

As outdoor activity is beginning to dwindle as we are heading to a colder month in Orange, I have been finding myself baking a little more than usual. Nothing overly complicated as per usual, but just a little breakfast treat with a kick of caffeine. You know how much I love my coffee. So much so that the lovely baristas at Factory Espresso can recite my order from the moment they hear my voice when I made a phone order ha!
