Dinner for the kids

Burgers for dinner - Yummy Yum!

Tiramisu in a Jar

Hasn't had a Christmas party for awhile ... this year (2012) we had the works! Christmas tree with the trimmings, turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, cheese & crackers and plenty more. Only thing that was missing is the snow and Santa!
We invited some of our former colleagues for Christmas lunch . It was fun catching up with everyone ... except that I was so busy I only got to say "Hello" to most people.

Instead of exchanging gifts, we asked our guest to bring some dried/canned food that we can donate. We had a huge collection - thank you !!!

I made Tiramisu in a Jar as Christmas gifts!

Christmas presies for my friends

I wanted to bake .... but the idea of so much baking was .... not something I'm going to enjoy. Hence, I've decide to ask my friends to bake it themselves :)

Very pretty, isn't it????

Birthday Cake - Girls

It was a challenge trying to bake a Mickey Mouse cake ... with the design and all. In the end, I just make a Mickey Mouse shaped cake, covered with plenty of lollies. Super Yum from the 4 year old perspective, and that's all it matters!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful girls, I love you

Birthday Cake - 7th years old

It's a fire truck birthday cake this year!! (I was lazy) ... hence I wanted to make something easy.  Made the sponge cake, stack them together and decorate with chocolate and lollies. Wah La!! the kids are happy,and  that's great!

I figured that I'll have more challenging requests when the kids are older ... for now, they are happy as long as the cake has chocolate and loads of lollies in them!

Happy Birthday to PaPa and K! -

Ben 10 Birthday Cake

Ever since I learned how to baked, I balked at the idea of paying $30.00 for a cake! Children cakes are even more expensive! Anyway, Kaelen wanted a Ben 10 Cake for his 6th birthday. I decided to bake him one and put his presents on his cake.

Lollipop Cookies

It's been toooooo long! Let's see what happen in the last 1-1/2 year ... I got pregnant and baby was born 4 months ago. It was much more tiring then my previous pregnancy ... and the smell of food just didn't do it for me. I stopped baking for a while, then I got lazy ... and lazier and lazier, haha!

Recently, Kaelen's school approached me to contribute food to their school carnival, I decided to make something that the kids like. I made M&M lollipop cookies for sales. Mom said that my cookies were too expensive - 1 for $2.50! I was worried that they be difficult to sell, guess what?? They were gone in 1-1/2 hrs.

M&M's® Cookies:

2 cups (260 grams) all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar
2/3 cup (140 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup (200 grams) M&M's® or Smarties® candies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Place one oven rack in the top third of the oven, and one oven rack in the bottom third of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 2 - 3 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the egg and egg yolk, beating until well combined. Beat in the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat just until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Form dough into balls, using 1/4 cup (50 grams) for each cookie. Place six balls of dough on each baking sheet. Gently flatten each ball of dough into a 2 1/2 inch (6.5 cm) round. Completely cover the tops of the cookies with the M&M's® or Smarties®. Gently press the candies into the dough. Bake the cookies for about 15-17 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the baking time. The cookies are done when they are light golden brown in color and just set. They will still seem a little soft but they will firm up as they cool. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 12 large cookies.

Korean Food

It's been sooo sooo long since I updated my blog, I forgot my password :(

Why was I absence for so long?? I've been hit by a horrible bad photo spell, since I had nothing good to show, I decided not to post anything at all!0

We bought the Nikon D80 ... and took some photos on our recent trip.

Wagyu beef, Kobe beef, USA beef .... all that talk about prime beef and the grade send me into a tailspin. I like good yummy Korean Beef!
