Raisin Oatmeal & Maple syrup cookies

There is some day that i just wake up and think " i know what i want to eat today" Well, to "bake" to be exact ^^ Like today, when i woke up and i just have the thought that i will make oatmeal cookies today. This cookies is so yummy!!!! Sweetness from raisin, chewy (and good source of fiber) from oatmeal. Warm touch of Maple syrup. Crispy and sweet. Simply delicious .. no glaze need (at least, for me). The only regret i have is that i should bake the whole batch instead of 1/2 recipe .. cause i eat them all in once and nothing left for snack during the rest of the day! :}

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

Some or all of you might begin to notice by now that i like Cinnamon Roll ^^ Yes, i do. I like Cinnamon Roll a lot, so much. I find them such a special dessert. They are so much fun to make: knead, roll, cut, ... just like sweet bread. Lovely texture when touch, look nice in special in form of spiral and taste that can be vary as you wish. Most of all, when they have the frosting on .. icing, cream cheese, caramel pecan, .. so hard to resist. Like this "Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies". I never try Cinnamon Roll in form of cookies before until now and i cannot stop baking them ever since. If you ever try once, you too, will do it again and again ^^ Yes, please try!

Fastest Cinnamon Buns, for real!

Edible flower ;)

"What? For real?" (my daughter like to say this word "for real?" :D) That is what i asked to myself when i found this "fastest cinnamon Buns" recipe. Yes, "fastest" but how fast? Oh, so fast that you do NOT have to wait for proofing. Wow, interesting. How about taste? Will it be the same? The only way to find out, let's do it. In the kitchen, mix mix mix, roll roll roll, cut cut cut, bake bake bake and voila! That's quick, really quick! So, it true that it is "fastest". Now, the taste .. Yum Yum Yum, Yippy! It tastes great! It's almost the same than the "proofing-needed" one. It even softer to me ^^ Yippy!!!!!! Of course, "Overnight Banana Sticky Buns" still be our favorite buns as it tastes to great and so delicious so yummy but just add a little place for this "Fastest Cinnamon Buns" recipe  as well :) as it's so quick!

Buttermilk Cornbread

Buttermilk Cornbread

Aie Aie Aieeeeeeeee Aie !!!!!! Yes, someone screaming but only this times it was not my kids, It's ME.. screaming SO LOUD that all the neighbors can here. Why? Well, because i was so stupid to hold cast-iron skillet that just come right OUT from the oven with my bare hand, yes, you read that right .. my BARE hand!!! So, now you agree that i have a good reason to scream? It was so painful that .. that .. i don't know how to explain .. but i keep making a "suffer noise" for the whole long 3 hours with an ice pack from the freezer (changing every 15 minutes) in my hand for the whole time.. How can that happen? Simply because i was worry too much about taking a nice picture at the right time.. i finished by having a huge burn on my left hand for the whole week .. Well, .. anyway. The show must go one. As i already burn my hand for this, i better make this worth doing. So, i took lots of pictures with my right hand .. yes, my one and only hand (yes, the other one was TOO PAINFUL from burning). I wish this picture could win some award to pay back a bit my pain :P (kidding :D)

Healthy cookies

Healthy cookies

I just love healthy food: anything whole wheat, oat, bran, oil, nut, etc. I guess everyone did love healthy food. But it 's just not easy to eat only that. But with creative ideas from lovely people who care about health out there everywhere in every countries from around the world, we have more and more new recipes which healthy AND delicious. We do no longer need to choose to eat healthy or eat happily. We can now have both ^^ I think it's fine not to always eat healthy. Some foods are not healthy for health but make you feel so happy to eat which is good for your mind! When you feel good, your body also feel good. So, it's not that bad, right? Well, there is moderation in everthing. I try to introduce my kids healthy food since they are little. So that , later, when they grow up, they can make a good choices for what they want to eat.
