I know I’ve been so busy in the past few days and I keep on forgetting to prepare some posts that should be up in here. Well, let’s try to put the past behind and let me present to you my experiments for the month of August.
August has been good to me: I got transitioned to become a full time freelance, and I was able to experiment some more on the baking side: I baked cookies(2 recipe) and one chocolate cake, and some other cooking experiments.
Recipe for August
The following recipes are the ones that I’ve tried. They are from bloggers that I followed and from my own experience, these recipes do rocks! Some side notes are also added on each recipe, these are my own learning experience:
1. Chewy Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies – This recipe is originally from Amy’s Healthy Baking blog, which I followed recently. The recipe is superb and I love it because Amy do provide gorgeous pictures, substitute for recipe that you might not have and more. Also, a video of the baking process is also appended at the end.

I’ve never tried roasting until I got my own Turbo Broiler earlier this year. I have been experimenting with my turbo for quiet some time now and found a way to roast chicken, bake cake and cookies. Maybe the list is a little shorter now but I hope that it will definitely grow.
Today, I’ll let you on the lessons that I learned while experimenting how to roast in the turbo broiler:
- To get that golden roast, cover the chicken with butter.
- Turbo Time is 50 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
- Add spices. They do make a difference.
For our anniversary, Sugarplum’s gift is a new American Heritage Turbo Broiler which I wanted for so long. You can read here and here how we celebrated our 3rd year anniversary. I decided to write a review on the turbo broiler because I really didn’t find a lot of helpful review when I searched for one before hitting up the store.
What’s in the box? (more…)
I’ll be posting some cooking stuffs around here since I am an avid fan of the kitchen. Yep, I truly do love experimenting and trying to make some delicious food out of the things that can be found locally. I am not a chef or some sort of cooking guru with culinary certificate; rather, what I have is some sort of an immense experience in the kitchen. Fueled by my curiosity on how to do cooking, I started out helping my mom at the kitchen, my cousins with some sort of “accident” and finally, I was allowed to do it on my own.
To be able to keep track of what I already tried and maybe remember the recipe, I’ll be updating this blog with recipes. Here’s one of my all time favorite– Creamy Bacon Carbonara Pasta.

Welcome to Cooking Stilettos!!!!
In here, I’m going to write about my experiments on food, fashion and travel. If you want to know more about me, you can visit my About Page.
I know this site looks a little bit empty, I’m sorry about that but I’ll try my best to fill this up in the coming days. I’ll be writing some new articles here and republish the old ones. I’ve got a ton of adventures that I want to write here and hopefully I’ll be able to publish them soon.
This is my sort of Welcome Message or Welcome Post, so I’m going to tell you the real reason why I created this website:
In case you didn’t know, I have another blog named Inks and Scribbles and in there I’ve written a lot of random posts in the last two years. I created the blog to make myself a better blogger or writer but I wasn’t thinking of what really my goal is in blogging. It seems irrational to put everything there: technical stuffs, short stories, adventures, food, recipe and all other mind boggling randomness.
One day, I decided to revamp that website. I revisited my website’s goals and the value of its name– Inks and Scribbles. It is for my writing and my reading experience. Putting myself in the shoes of my reader, I finally understood why there is a need for separation. I cannot write everything in Inks and Scribbles without filter– it will defeat its purpose.
I also didn’t want to stop writing about the food I’m planning to make, the places I visited and the shopping experiences that I had. I knew I’m not a culinary expert but I’m curious about making food. I love experimenting and want to share it to the whole world wide web. I’m a beginner in these three goals: food, fashion and travel. Certainly, there is a place in blogging for beginners, right? Cooking Stilettos was born out of this new beginning. A new chance, a new challenge and I hope it will live up to its name– Cooking Stilettos.
There, that’s the reason why I created this whole new site– as a platform for me to share my experience in food, fashion and travel. In an ideal scenario, I want people to be inspired by this move. I want them to realize that it’s okay if you’re not an expert yet, it’s okay to begin something today, now. I want to inspire people to do something that they’ve longed of doing. That’s the ideal scenario but I’m still not sure where this blog would be in a week, a month or a year after but all I know is that I’ve made it in Phase 1 and certainly, I’ve done it!
That’s all for today and see you around folks!
