Battle Sheep

After making this game out of cookies, it seems only right to give Battle Sheep a board game spotlight! Battle Sheep is a great abstract game that has a cute theme and can be absolutely brutal in it’s playstyle. Stacks of sheep roam the fields and take over the pasture, spreading out as far as they can while blocking in their opponents. This game is fast paced, easy to learn and play, and great for gamers of any experience! Continue Reading →

Blueberry Compote

When watching the Great British Bake Off, I often see them referencing compotes. Compotes are put inside cakes, on top of cakes, underneath cakes, besides cake okay, floating above cakes. Ok, I’m exaggerating, but you get the point. I grew curious about compotes. And given the cake I decided to make for the Week One Showstopper, I thought a blueberry compote would be the perfect complement to a banana-based cake. Continue Reading →

My rule of 3 for sushi is 1 protein, something crunchy and something creamy. Continue Reading →

Sweet Brioche Rolls

Bread is delicious. I absolutely love brioche but then my partner told me that the brioche we got wasn't like the one he remembered. He remembered it sweeter. And so began my journey to find the right recipe to make the perfect sweet brioche roll. I am not sure if this is it but this version is pretty good, if I do say so myself. Brioche is an enriched dough (which I'm pretty sure means: has more ingredients than water, flour, yeast and salt). Due to this, it takes more time to rise because the yeast needs more time to activate. The total recipe will take about six hours but less than an hour of that will be active time.
