4-Ingredient Chocolate Japanese Cheesecake

Hey guys, check out this insanely fluffy awesome 4-ingredient Chocolate Japanese Cheesecake I just made!

Ohhhhhh yeah, I could watch this on repeat all day. Anybody else?

In my last post, I shared how to make this vegetarian-friendly Japanese Tofu Katsu Curry since (surprisingly) I found real veggie options tough to come by during our two-week trip. But let’s be honest: it didn’t really matter because I spent most of my time stuffing my face with adorable sweets and fluffy Japanese cheesecakes like this one instead!

The first cheesecake that I tried in Japan actually came from a rest stop … Read more

Easy Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

There’s something infinitely reassuring about being able to make a great dessert armed with nothing except a single bowl, a whisk, and a slightly voracious emotional appetite. Last month, I made these Easy Mini Oreo Cheesecakes three times, fueled in part by some BIG changes that have been happening. And then I realized that I’ve been AWOL for nearly three months, so scroll on down for more on those big life updates (and this unacceptably late recipe)!

About three months ago, I started a brand new job at another major film studio! It’s still in digital marketing (though now for … Read more

3-Ingredient Japanese Cheesecake

Asian parents rave: “This Japanese cheesecake is pretty good.

Okay, so maybe those “raving Asian parents” are my own parents, and maybe “pretty good” doesn’t sound like the most impressive praise on the Internet for a 3-Ingredient Japanese Cheesecake that my friends have subsequently called “soooooooo delicious,” “absolutely mmmmazing,” and their “new favorite dessert of all time. Ever.” But if you grew up in a household where direct praise was as rare as snow days in Los Angeles, you know exactly what I mean when I say that a verdict of “pretty good” basically means that I am Goddess … Read more

Auntie Arleen’s Famous Jello Cheesecake

Hello friends!

While it’s hard to believe that I’ve been away for nearly ten months now, I promise I’ve been putting my sabbatical to good use with some much-needed updates to this little corner of the internet. That’s right, folks: Wallflour Girl is now proudly mobile-optimized with a brand new layout, header, photo recipe index, info pages, and more! 

Although there’s still a ton of stuff that I had originally wanted to do before posting an update here, I’ve really missed blogging lately and finally decided last week to start writing again. With all the craziness currently characterizing … Read more

Boy, what a week! End-of-year dinners, graduations, and hangouts have been happening non-stop since last Monday, though it hardly feels like six years have flown by since I first stepped foot into grad school. (More about that in next week’s post!) I also made the journey down to Anaheim to cover some live events at VidCon–and finally made my 90s kid self’s dreams come true by getting slimed at the Nickelodeon booth! In the midst of all the hubbub, though, I’m … Read more

Growing up in California, my Christmases were never filled with real snowdrifts and cups of hot cocoa over a crackling log fire. Christmases were thin flyaway scarves on nippy sun-soaked mornings and Chinese sticky rice served in a large rice cooker. They were elaborate piles of wrapped presents under a tree, but they were also eggnog-free, booze-free, cookie-free celebrations of time together with family. Until a few years ago, I never even considered what it meant to have a conventionally Western Christmas: to build floppy houses made of real gingerbread, to squeeze into an abhorrently amusing ugly holiday sweater for … Read more

Strawberries ‘n Cream Cookies {+ A Few Thoughts from a PokéTrainer}

You know those incredibly frustrating people walking around on the streets and into traffic and over cliffs and right smack dab on top of your newly-polished dress shoes because they’re too busy playing Pokémon GO?

I have a confession to make.

Strawberries 'n Cream Cookies 1--071816

I am one of those incredibly frustrating people playing Pokémon GO.

I apologize if I ever trampled over your dog in my haste to catch an Arcanine. It was (probably) an accident, unless you just happened to be in my way while a Squirtle is loose nearby and a mad, mob-mentality stampede that would make any Black … Read more

Golden Oreo-Stuffed Snickerdoodle Blondie Cheesecake Bars

Golden Oreo-Stuffed Snickerdoodle Blondie Cheesecake Bars 5--121115

I’ve just started reading Morton N. Cohen’s edition of Lewis Carroll’s collected letters and the pitter-patter of rain outside seems bent on creating the perfect England-esque backdrop for my rambles into this bizarre British author’s mind. I’ve reached a sort of rut as far as my dissertation writing is concerned, so after rereading what I had written so far, I’m taking a step back this week and trying to focus on gathering as many clues as I can around the creation of the Alice stories. It’s kind of like playing a game of Clue, only you’re the only one … Read more

Cheesecake Brownies with Fudgy Chocolate Ganache 4--102115

Somehow the gods of time have managed to speed us straight through October. In less than two weeks, I’ll be flying to Florida to compete in the World Food Championships–and you know it’s official because my completely un-glam face and bio have somehow been plastered on their website.

Watch out, WFC: your competition is about to get a whole lot derpier.

As folks around me can attest, I have been baking a LOT lately. My friends, who have graciously volunteered to be guinea pigs help me taste-test my recipes over the past few weeks, are keeping me on … Read more
