I’m having a bad week (and it’s only Wednesday today, GOSH!) so I turned to junk food, hoping to find some comfort. After 2 rows of almond chocolate bar, 1 packet of van houton semi-sweet almond chocolate, 1 set of Mcdonald’s, and 1 Oreo Mcflurry, I’m still feeling pretty moody. Well, it seems like the happy food doesn’t really help. Then it strikes on me that baking can be therapeutic as well.

Cookies again, thanks to my cookie monsters friends! These crunch cookies are from the trusted Chocolate Chips Cookies recipe (Williams-Sonoma’s Cookies page 10).  Hopefully, the next entry will be something other than cookies or I’ll probably die of cookies overload! Anyway, it’s Monday again tomorrow so I hope all of you will have a great week ahead!

I think I’ve expressed my love for peanut butter. I swear I can just scoop peanut butter and eat it just like that. However, the popularity of peanut butter are from 2 extreme ends. Some people just love it and some don’t thus, peanut butter is not a regular guest iny my baking list. Thankfully, my dear friend requested for some peanut butter cookies last week so I have some excuse to indulge in my favourtie skippy!

Other than chocolate chips cookies, my next favourite type of cookie is none other than oatmeal cookies. Usually, I’ll just use any oatmeal cookies that has many raves but I don’t seem to use these recipes again. So far, none of the oatmeal cookies has entered my favourite category. Yes they’re delicious (most of the time), but there’s nothing special that make it my favourite.

I’m sure everyone knows that I’m quite an impatient person and I hate to wait. I find it a hassle to wait for ingredients like butter to come to room temperature but sadly, it seems like baking requires some patience as almost every recipe requires the ingredients to be at room temperature.

It’s been a while since my last attempt with bread. When I first started making bread, I did a lot of research, reading from forums and different blog about bread making but sadly, it seems like all these knowledge has escaped from my brain, causing some “mishap” in the kitchen. Nevertheless, I managed to present my tiny loaf of bread here.

My friends and I had our lunch at Ikea today and as usual, we couldn’t finish the food we ordered. Then it dawn onto us how wasteful we are and we keep rattling on how guilty we all are about the waste. The irony thing is, despite feeling guilty, it seems like a norm that we will always order more that we can eat.
