Welcome to Dumpling Love! I’m CC, a Perth-based, stressed-out student with a hectic schedule.

I cook. I bake. I eat. Being in the kitchen is my place of therapy, where I let my creative juices run. Some people pay for psychotherapy to vent their stress and relax their minds; I pay for flour, milk, and eggs. I eat everything, and enjoy trying new cuisines and cooking techniques.

Thanks for dropping by, and hope you enjoy reading about what I get up to in & out of the kitchen! Please don’t hesitate to drop me a comment with any suggestions and/or questions. I’d love to hear from you!

Hope my posts inspire you in & out of the kitchen!  See more frequent updates from me on Instagram (@cscc28)!.

Happy reading! ^^

  1. Hi CC,

    In April 2015 in a comment you left for a chocolate granola recipe on the Pinch of Yum blog, you said “my next batch of granola is going to be a “ferrero” one with cacao, hazelnuts and dark chocolate”.

    That sounded wonderful and am hoping you’ll share the recipe with me please?

    I’m looking for a recipe that isn’t just granola, but a holiday snack for guests or parties. Dark chocolate is almost an addiction for me – can’t figure out why folks would want to eat milk chocolate! 🙂

    Thank you CC,

    • Hi Kathy! Thanks for dropping by! I am a terrible recipe-follower and I usually just estimate quantities but I’m happy to have a think about quantities if you want more specific info. Generally, my ferrero granola was a mix of: rolled oats, rolled rye, cacao powder, hazelnuts, a bit of cashew, ground flaxseed, and honey. I also add a lightly-whipped egg white (until foamy) to act as a binder because I like chunky granola. Just mix the dry ingredients, add the wet ones and bake =) Email me if you want any other info! I completely agree with you re: dark vs. milk choc! On the rare occasions I eat milk choc, my teeth hurt from the sweetness!!
