So of course, we have to celebrate with dessert. Again!

Last year, it was with these apple cider doughnuts with maple glaze. And the year before that, we celebrated with mason jar lid apple crumble. And this year, we’re celebrating with this apple cobbler à la mode. Because as amazing as any dessert is, it’s even better with ice cream. But… Are you seeing a pattern?

I swear, it’s not on purpose! Lol. But somehow, apples have been the theme each year.

About a month ago, I stumbled across Baker Doe’s Instagram page and discovered some of the prettiest bicolor croissants I’ve ever seen. Okay, so maybe it was the first time I’ve ever seen bicolor croissants. But I really really wanted to try them. Unfortunately, to order these croissants for Sunday delivery, you have to be quick because it’s on a first come first serve basis.

Croissants

I finally got my hands on a dozen of these croissants last weekend. And they did not disappoint. I ordered duck yolk lava custard croissants topped with cookie crumbles, pink guava bicolor croissants, pandan coconut double baked croissants, and a dulce de leche danish with caramel and chocolate shards. I can’t decide which I like better: the duck yolk lava custard croissants, which are like the yolk buns you get at dim sum, or the coconut pandan double baked croissants.

We’re in the middle of another heat wave in San Francisco, and it has been absolutely difficult to cook. Just imagine unusually hot weather outside, no air conditioning whatsoever in the house, and the oven is running at 400F. So totally comfortable, right?

I’ve been working so much more lately, and it’s been hard balancing both work and cooking for the blog. But hopefully I’m back on track now because I seriously love fall, and I have so many things I want to make and share. So today, I wanted to start with pumpkin maple cassava cake.

The last several days have been tough for those living in Northern California. You may have heard that our state has been fighting wildfires since Sunday night. It has been so devastating for everyone here. While San Francisco is not in the wildfire area, we are getting the smoke and ashes from the north. The air quality is so bad at times that you see many people walking around the streets with masks on. And for those of us who are not personally affected by the wildfires, we all know someone who is.

Right now, we’re trying to figure out ways to help our neighbors to the north. And it has been difficult and heartbreaking to think that this is our new normal. Even now, after so many days, the fires are still burning strong.
