Irish Cream Tiramisu

Irish Cream Tiramisu, delish!

It’s finally the weekend!

And it’s an extra joyous weekend because it’s the term break next week, hurrah! So, one for good cheer: I decided to make some tiramisu.

(No, actually it’s more like I finally found a day I could spare four over hours without ending up feeling guilty because I neglected some of my readings and what a long sentence this is to say with one breath, ha.)

I took the classic version of this Italian dessert and replaced the Marsala wine with Baileys.

Mmmm, Baileys. Coffee. Irish cream. Liqueur. Crème caramel. You get my drift.

Read on for the recipe!

Hello from my kitchen again!

Homecooking is my comfort.

School has been swallowing me whole. Not to mention the birthday prep and the party itself for my 21st just a few days back.

I haven’t been posting, and about my food all the more 😦 What I’ve missed is cooking at home. It’s probably not the food, but the cooking that is my comfort; going back to why I started this blog, you’ll know.

And hence, on impulse, I plated up after making lunch today, got my camera and set to work.

Via Mar Paella & Tapas @ SAM

Pasta con camarones y chorizo (Spaghetti tossed with Shrimp & Chorizo Bits, $19) at Via Mar Paella & Tapas @ SAM.

To mark the end of summer (and the dreaded start of the school term), a much-needed lunch date with two of my favourite friends was certainly in order.

We started the meal with hugs, dug into our tapas, chatted in between mouthfuls of spaghetti and rice, and finally toasted with churros to a wonderful semester ahead.

Ah yes, it was a good afternoon. And then oh, we had some wine.

Snack Packs, Grab Bags!

One snack pack for each day!

I haven’t been posting for a couple of days now, and that’s because I’ve been buried under the enormous pile of work I’ve to cover before my semester final exams which are just in two days! This evening, though, I’ve the luxury of spending a little time here as earlier today I spent 10 hours at Starbucks cramming my mind. It’s safe to say it’s bamboozled right now, with all the abstract concepts I’ve had to plough through! 😦

Relating to school and studying, today I’m sharing about something I’ve found particularly useful. And I am almost certain this could work well too even for the non-schooling (i.e. those of you older ones, ha ha).

Do you find yourself getting hungry in the middle of the day, despite having had lunch and wondering just where you can get your tummy filled? Yet, you don’t want to be snacking too much because you’re afraid off putting on the pounds? What do you do then?

Well, I’ve been snacking a lot, but on fruits! I call them snack packs. Excellent source of vitamins, refreshing, and just what you need to satisfy those hunger pangs — with all natural goodness, at that! What’s not to love? 🙂

Fruity love!

Now why I call them grab bags is this: they’re splendid for those grab-and-go mornings.
