Some life updates and a big news in this post + Stella Parks homemade bagel recipe report on Serious Eats!
In the last sixty days, I challenged myself and baked 60 King Arthur Flour Recipes. Here is the complete list of all the KAF recipes I tried!
Moving to Seattle makes me realize I can’t take good bagels for granted anymore. I decided to find the best bagel in Seattle, before jumping to the conclusion of Seattle is a bagel desert. Here is everything you want to know about Seattle bagels!
Unexpectedly, Molly On the Range became on of my most used cookbooks. Find out my review, recipes taste tests with photos and more!
I WON THE GREAT BOOK LARDER BAKE-OFF! Here I’m sharing all the recipes I used and the whole process behind how to create my winning Open Faced Victoria Sandwich.
Each day in August, I have made a recipe from BA’s Best – a collection of the best essential recipes from Bon Appetit. Here is a recap and review of all my favorite (and least) favorite recipes!
Make my Mini Overnight Whole Wheat Yeasted Waffles with Red Bean Filling! If you like: Super easy to make, No effort,

For this Her Cookbook Club review, we have Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook by Christina Tosi. Despite my love-hate relationship with Momofuku Milk Bar, I think every dessert lover should read this book, at least to get an idea of what is it like to work in a highly successful American dessert shop and how Christina Tosi came up with all her iconic quirky desserts.
Granola Biscotti, what a genius idea. It’s fun and healthier than a regular biscotti with all the oats, raisins and crunchy coconut. But then it’s a biscotti not a granola bar, which eating it will make you feel you’re taking an afternoon break rather than rushing out of the door in the morning. It’s the perfect marriage for both of my favorite meals – breakfast and afternoon tea.
Korvapuusti – Finnish Cinnamon Rolls. A wonderful creation I discovered when visiting Portland. After my first bite, I knew I can never go back. So I made my own. The harmony between cardamon and cinnamon, the almost caramel-like bottom, the softness of the bun contrasting with the crispy pearl sugar. IT’S JUST PERFECTION.
HEY FRIENDS!! It’s Her Cookbook Club time again! I’m really enjoying the process of reviewing a cookbook. I choose one from the 100000 cookbooks on my bookshelf, re-read it, pick several interesting recipes, test them, snap a photo and write my thoughts down. Today, I thought I would visit an old friend, Thug Kitchen Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck.
Okay let me confess first, I was no crumpet pro at all 3 months ago. In fact, I first heard the word “crumpet” after moving to Seattle, at the The Crumpet Shop in Pike Place Market, but I cannot go back from the moment of that first bite. It really is the simplest thing to make and there are endless topping ideas you can try. Here, I will share my favorite combinations to make you a crumpet pro, too!
By now, I think you already knew my obsession with cookbooks. I thought the hardest part of starting Her Cookbook Club would be selecting the first book. You know, I have way too many of them and I am Virgo. Surprisingly, I chose The Love & Lemons Cookbook by Jeanine Donofrio without any hesitation (and it’s not even a baking cookbook!). The real struggle actually is writing the introduction you’re reading now. I have so many thoughts and love for this book. I do not know where to start from. Thankfully after sipping my matcha latte for an hour, I beat my first writer’s block. So here we have it, our first Her Cookbook Club selection!
From the moment I decided to create HerBakingLab, I knew I would have a section on the blog for cookbooks. (Click here to find out why I started the blog!) I just don’t know what exactly it will look like. I was inspired by Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen that she started a book club on her blog this year and I absolutely love the idea! However, we’re gonna do things a little bit different here. We’ll have a cookbook club. Her Cookbook Club.
