There is only one beautiful child in the world
and every mother has it.
I love you to the moon and back Little Miss,
thank you for choosing me to be your Mum.
Manila, Mother’s Day weekend 2015
Cooked up a storm for our annual Christmas dinner in our home, made some of my signature dishes (beef rendang, pork ribs and roasted chicken) dessert table was dominated by chocolate ( 3 layers chocolate cake with caramel filling and chocolate ganache icing, oreo cupcake, chocolate cookies, chocolate pralines). So happy I pull it through with no major hiccups, the food was enjoyed by all and I receive nothing but compliment, cheers to that!
Sunday activities in our household, between typhoon warning and all the excitement of the festive holiday approaching we stayed warm and cozy in my kitchen. We’ve made chocolate crackles (rice krispies & mars bars), marshmallow dipped in chocolate (my daughter favourite) and X’mas chocolate cookies. Most of our baked goodies were packed and delivered to I Love Street Kids project in Manila.
It’s our family tradition to baked festive cookies for family and friends in December, the most waited time of the year. This time around the cookies even made it safe and sound to Vancouver, Canada! I’ve made 2 sizes of sugar cookies this year, the large ones were individually wrapped as hampers filling and the bite size ones were served in our annual christmas dinner party. I also baked oatmeal with chocolate chips and M&M’s cookies (Santa’s favourite) and festive pinwheel cookies (my daughter favourite). Nothing beat freshly baked cookies for the holiday.
Wishing you joyful Christmas wherever you are.
Yes, my family are crazy about these 2 flavours. Meet my latest combo of delicious concoction, it’s Caramel cupcake with dulce de leche filling and chocolate ganache icing. It is heavenly. My daughter polished it off her plate and asked for more. Brought a tray of this yummy treat to Triathlete family gathering in friends house just now and it was a big hit, one happy baker here.
