Red Velvet Cupcakes

Valentine’s day is around the corner. Bryan and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s day. But this is a good excuse for me to make some delicious desserts.šŸ™‚ Nothing says Valentine’s day more than a vivid red cupcake. Red velvet cupcake is pretty new to me. I have never seen or had this in Hong Kong before. At the beginning, I am not sure about the color of this cupcake. But soon after I tried my first red velvet, I have fallen in love with it. It is not that scary, in fact, it is just a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting. This recipe is great! The cupcakes were light and flavorful, and the frosting was so creamy. They were not too sweet at all. For those of you who don’t like desserts too sweet, these cupcakes are for you. Enjoy!

Creamy Pasta with Peas and Carrots

This pasta is absolutely delicious! The sauce was the secret. It was made with mascarpone cheese and cream cheese. I actually like this sauce more than a simple bechamel.Ā The cheeses made the sauce very creamy and flavorful. With a tons of vegetables and some shrimps, this pasta is a good balance meal. And, it is very easy to make. Hmmm…… Yummy!

Creamy Taco Macaroni

A few months ago, I saw this recipe on Annie’s Eats. I tried the recipe and it was amazing. The flavor was exactly like a taco, but it was in a form of pasta. The most important was that this pasta was easier to make than a taco. Minimum dicing work is perfect for a fast weeknight meal. The pasta was creamy and flavorful. Bryan and I liked this a lot! If you want the taco flavors, but you didn’t feel like cutting all the toppings. Then, this is your recipe!

Pumpkin Cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing

This Thanksgiving, I was thinking to make some kind of pumpkin dessert. But I have made the pumpkin gooey bar (Read) for the past two years. I wanted to have something new and different. Finally, I have decided on this pumpkin cupcake recipe. My father-in-law ate 3 of these cupcakes at one time, and my mother-in-law asked me to make these again for Christmas. I love these cupcakes too! They are not too sweet, but flavorful. The cream cheese icing is absolutely perfect with the cupcakes. This recipe is very simple, and it won’t take you all day!

Pumpkin Gooey Bar

This is a really good and easy pumpkin dessert. Instead of having pumpkin pie, this is an excellent choice. I love the soft crust on the bottom, and the mixture is so delicious and gooey. Bryan loves this absolutely! I have made this many times, and it was a success every time. Just make sure not to overbake. If the center jiggle a little, that is normal.
