Lemon Basil Cream Linguine


Don’t you just love a complete homecooked meal that you can whip up for the whole family in 30 minutes or less? Well, this is one of those recipes that is rich, creamy, filling, but thanks to the fresh herbs and lemon used in the recipe, it leaves you feeling satisfied but not overly heavy/sluggish.

The girls enjoyed their dinner as much as the husband and I did. So much so that my fussy 4 year old requested for it to be made again the next day. My 3 year old will slurp down anything with prawn in it. In her words, “Prawn is my favourite, you know?”.

Talking about the girls, remember this cake that I decorated for my 3 year old?


I’ve had readers asking me what kind of piping tips I used to pipe the flowers and roses, and where did I get it. I used a Wilton 2D, and I’d like to give you that piping tip, and a few common ones used to frost gorgeous cakes and cupcakes!

Delishar is giving away a set of Wilton 12 Piece Cupcake Decorating Set! This set consist of 4 decorating piping tips (2A, 1M, 4B, and 2D) and 8 disposable quality piping bags! To qualify, simply complete the Rafflecopter at the end of this post! 

But first, here is the recipe for my Lemon Basil Cream Linguine.

    I would be trying out on my piping as, if I really did won, this will be my virgin experience in frosting my bakes.
    additionally, I would love to see my baking ideas without the need of using butter due to my parents conditions, they can't take oily nor buttery food.
