Oatmeal With Chocolate Chips And Sultanas Cookies


















I saw this delectable fibre rich cookies in Angie's blog - SeasaltWithFood and I knew I had to make them for my Piggy Joshua...he eats lots of meat so have to balance his diet with lots of fibre. Being away from home, it is hard to supervise his eating habits. So I decided to make these yummilicious cookies for him to snack on while doing his assignments.  If I were ask him to make himself a glass of oat drink everymorning before he goes for his lectures hmmmm.....I can forget I said it for he detest mushy oats.  Well , if I make them into crunchy cookies...he can finish the whole tub of oatmeal cookies then.   I make a tub full for him to take back to college :)  Smart momsie ...yeah !  It is not that difficult to make your child eat oats afterall ! :p

My Birthday Cake Unveiled - " Ferrero Rocher White & Dark Chocolate Cake"



















Today is my birthday....a day I put aside to remember the labor pain my mom went through just to deliver me into world....and the years of bringing me up to be a proper person. My mom went back to be with the Lord 4 years ago and I miss her very much. And today is a special day. Yesss...my mom brought me into this part of the world and I would like to dedicate this post to her ....mom , if you are looking down and reading this post, I want to thank you for going through all the pains for my existence today :)

Close friends asked me what cake will I making for my birthday. ( they can't wait to savor :p ) I could not answer them for I really do not know what cake to make for this special day...a cake I would like to dedicate to my Mom.....a beautiful woman, my mentor and my best friend . A wonderful mom who taught me how to cook rice and fry vegetables and taught me how to do marketing when I was 12 years old. My culinary skill taught by her came handy today and I hope my Joanna will be able to cook well like the dear Grandmama :) This special cake is " Ferrero Rocher White & Dark Chocolate Cake !

Banana Chocolate Cake


Occasionally ,I will take a peek at Piggy's Cooking Journal and will virtually feast on her cakes. I saw this Banana Chocolate Cake from her cooking journal  and I told myself I must make it when I have surplus banana in the house. There is always none left for making cakes unless I hide it away from the Piggies :p  So this recipe has been in stored in  my To Do List for a few months and now finally I have the opportunity to bake it for Claire's kids.
