Inspirations

We are often discourage if someone or something have negative things to say to us or we just completely discourage and think life isn't great like we wanted it to be.

Do I sound like Emo kids? I hope not. ^__^ I think this video is quite inspiration. He is born without arms and legs and he accomplish his dreams because he want to, determine to.

So get up and don't give up! Everything bad is lesson to be learn.





Happy Monday? ^__^

I should do that save money in piggy bank. I should start. ^_^

Brownies


I love brownies. Heck! I love every thing chocolatey. I have extra chocolate in my fridge and always have a rush to bake something with it. I don't know, it's crazy. I can't have a bit of chocolate or I will bake with it. I could just eat it but I want to bake it. Don't ask why.

This is nice brownies. I can't say it is the best I've ever taste or perhaps because I am such a bad baker?


I got the recipe from JoyOfBaking.com



For the topping, I just melt chocolate and condensed milk and pour on top of the brownies when it out from the oven. Heaven!





ENJOY!!!

Cream Puff With Custard Filling and Chocolate Ganache.



Call it profiterole, cream puff (US), or choux à la crème, this is one desert I keep making over and over again, easy and delicious! I can eat it with ice cream, custard or even by itself...so much more ..


Recipe for cream puff, I followed this pastry chef, Chef Eric Crowley. It is so fluffy and soft! I like it!





For cream custard fillings, I followed recipes from this excellent pastry chef. Unfortunately, you have to subscribe to her e-book and you will have free cream puff recipes, together with cream custard fillings.^__^ Trust me, you won't regret it.






Have great Weekend! ^__^



Cereal Of The Month : Kellogs Tresor


As an adult who still love cereal and even eat cereal throughout the day, I am excited to get my hands on Tresor. It is not a brand new cereal, it just... I watched TV commercial and because I am a nut with love for chocolate and cereal, I love this cereal instantly!

So since last week, I am trying to search Tresor in every store. Unfortunately, there is either no stock or they don't supply it! It is surprise to me because I searched from the biggest chain stores ! *bummer*

Even my bf emailed Kellogs for complaint because I couldn't find it. Probably my bf is either being sweet or he kinda annoyed with me because I keep singing Tresor! Tresor! hehe ^__^

Today without my songs about Tresor and expectations of finding it ..I FOUND IT and loving it! ^_^




Taste: Yummylicious with or without milk.





What's your fav cereal?

Mother's Day



It was mother's day and I am quite sad because I can't be there to say to her myself, hug her and kiss on her cheeks "Happy Mother's Day!".

I guess my mother have to wait a bit while to get her gift because I will be going home. yay! ^__^

I always see my mother as a very smart women. When I was little, I always amaze how she fits a lot of foods in the fridge or sewing my dad pants and she always knows how much money she should and shouldn't spend in particular store. ^__^

I am still amaze. ^__^

She's the best cook in the world and she never pressure me to cook. When I moved to Finland, I missed my mom cook so much, I learned myself and it turns out to be one my passion now. I am sure she is proud of me though she would never tell me.

She never told me or my sister we look pretty, she never hugs me nor kiss me on forehead before I go to sleep but I know she loves me so much in her own way because she always cook something yummy whenever I feel crappy. ^__^

My mother raised me and my sister to be very independent. We don't cry if we don't get what we wanted and she always told us to do what we love to do and I love her quote that "Don't worry if you messing up the food, we make the food, not the other way round!"

It is same as if you messing up something, there is always a solution!

So for all mother's out there! You are the bomb for putting up so much shit from the kids! ^__^


I love you, ma.^_^
