But recently I was inspired by one of my bestie to make them at home after realizing how easy the steps were.

In this article I am sharing my version made using air-fryer and how I pair it with noodle to make a hearty meal.

[recipes + video] Sweet And Savory Honey Recipes


*in collaboration with Huiji Honey

Honey which is a natural sweetener for making beverage is also an excellent addition for baking and cooking. It can helps to retain moisture in the cake or adds as a golden hue to sauces and dressing. Personally I find honey blend well with most meat dishes especially chicken and it make great dressing when mix with lemon, mustard sauce or fresh herbs too.

From what I read up you can actually replace 1 cup sugar with half portion of honey in your recipes to cut down the amount of sugar used. So for a healthier diet perhaps you can try adding honey into your next bake or checkout our honey related recipes below.
