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.

It’s almost 12 noon and you still don’t know what to prepare for lunch, here’s my Quick Lunch Recipe that I’ve tried this week. I’m a work at home gal and I really like prepping up my lunch to make sure that I get a balance meal during this time. I usually take an hour of break for lunch and try my best to prep these meals for about 30 minutes or below. (more…)
I love peanuts! I’ve been (hoarding) buying a lot of peanuts recently and found that some of them are just skinless but are not cooked thoroughly; though, I think some people prefer their peanuts to be a little bit raw. It’s not for me, I cringe a little bit when tasting raw peanut, I’m not sure why but that’s just it.
I didn’t throw away my raw peanuts; rather, it opened an opportunity for me to do a little bit of experiment on roasted peanut. (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.

Here’s another simple recipe from this avid kitchen wanna-be expert.
No bake Blueberry Cheesecake
I really haven’t tried baking because I grew up without an oven or any machinery for baking. What I tried are just pancake making and some sort of local delicacies that my grandmother and mother used to make. Aside from the machinery, I’m also a bit of hesitant to create something that might be a total disaster. It’s food and it should never be wasted. 😉
Some things really do changed because of YouTube and the internet, my housemate discovered Todd’s kitchen and we browsed through his tutorial and learned how to make the No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake! (more…)
