I am two days behind my 3rd blog anniversary.

I spent the past two days putting together my favourite recipes and photos into a book. Yes, I created my own cookbook, sort of ;)

This book will remain in a digital form, as I will be adding in recipes every now and then, plus, it will be too expensive to get it printed!

To thank all of you who have been spending your time reading about my baking adventures, and for leaving encouraging comments and very kind words on this humble blog, I will like to share this collection of my past baking and cooking repertoire with you. I do hope you enjoy flipping through the pages :D


Happy 2010!

  9. Hi HHB
    Happy New Year to You!
    Your cookbook is so professionally done. I will surely buy a copy if you will get it published. I made the Tiramisu Charlotte cake and Lemon and Rosemary roast chicken for our New Year gathering today and my sisters and brothers-in-law just love it.
    Thanks..... without you, I won't get the compliments....
    Thanks again and 'see' you soon

  16. Hi,

    I'm a silent reader of your blog and have referred to your blog for ideas on birthday cakes. I also made the Tiramisu Charlotte cake for my father-in-law and friend and they both said that the design looks very pretty! I must really thank you for the inspiration and the wonderful work.

    The electronic book really looks awesome. If you have it published one day, can you please let us know? I'll definitely get a copy of it!

  17. Hands up, legs up.... your recipe book is definitely much much better than those sold out there!!! You left me very very impressed, once again. Thanks for all your sharing ;-)

  19. Hi Quinn, I checked my browser (I am using firefox) and the digital book is still displayed on my blog post. Anyway, I have just used a fresh set of codes again, hope it works now.

  20. Yeah, it works now!!! Are you considering to make a food calendar out of these???? They are so beautiful! Happy New Year HHB!

  25. Happy new year and happy blog anniversary, HHB! Here's to many more good years to come :)

  26. Very nicely and well done! Love the pictures and recipes that work. :)

    Just hate some books in the store which have nice pictures but recipes that suck.

    I've got the same idea to do a recipe book for myself one day. Now still gathering recipes and learning to take better photos first.

    Perhaps you can sell electronic copies! :D

    Happy New Year!

  27. Hi HHB,
    You're always so patiently doing all those pretty stuff! Seriously, like one of the comments, if you really get this published, I would like a copy. I think you should consider having this published! It's just so beautiful, and so much effort into it!
    Happy New Year HHB! Hope to see more of your baking posts! Happy Blog-sary!

  28. Hi,

    I have followed your blog for almost a year and it's time to say a big "Thank You". In Hong Kong where I live now, I have thought it was impossible to bake bread using a small counter top oven. Then I came across your recipes, the portion and taste are just perfect. Now I even knead by hand, good exercise.

  29. Wow! Great looking book. Its a new career in the making!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! Very impression with your e-book. I love it. Hope to see more of baking in 2010. :D

  31. HHB, this is really awesome! Indeed the book looks really professional. Congratulations on your third year into blogging!

  32. I love your blog and your e-book look really professional, really wish to view your book in full size and keep a copy of it on my shelf! Thank you for sharing all the great recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow! Awesome book! Will grab a copy if it goes on print, for the recipes and the PHOTOS!

    Happy New Year and congrats on your blog anniversary! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Awesome! You not only inspire others through baking, but also now, in creating a collection of recipes :). I also hope I can compile a collection of recipes that I used before (but of a selfish reason - as I usually link the recipes I used, thus worried others remove them and I can't remake it anymore)

    I really love your book .. not sure if it is my problem, but when I click on it, it just will not open ... I can only satisfied with the blog post small version.

    Lastly, I think you really should consider publish it. You already have a few orders :)

  35. Your blog looks scrumptious, and you have so many amazing things on here!! I just started up my own baking blog, and I would appreciate it if you would take a look and follow it!

  36. Hello, your digital cookbook looks very nice!! thanks so much for sharing the recipes and tips in baking..i really like reading your blog and looking at those pretty pictures. I wish i could bake like you one day ;)

  37. HHB...Your book is lovely...Thanks for the inspiration. I stumbled upon your site while looking for sausage rolls recipe and ended up trying the Hokkaido Milk Bread instead with much success after a terrible failure on Pain Aux Noix (Walnut Bread). Here's the link to my site, which I've mentioned about you, that inspired me to work better on my bread: http://sites.google.com/site/jlohcook/home/breadmaking/hokkaido-soft-white-bread
    Certainly looking forward to your comments and more inspiration.

  38. Hi Jenny, I read your blog, but I don't know how to leave a comment in your blog ;')
    I am glad that your hokkaido milk loaf turns out well, it is a very wet and sticky dough, so it takes extra effort to knead by hand. I am happy to find aanother bread baker sharing the same enthusiasm as me :D
