A Simple Gift

I have a colleague who shares the same birthdate as me, and another who is one day later. Both happens to be my good friends. Coincidence? Nah...Probably our horoscope just click, despite we are some years apart.

When I saw HHB's cookies, I knew I just had to bake it! She was right, it's truly a healthy cookie, low sugar, low butter and all the other healthy ingredients. I didn't hesitate to make 2x the recipe. It turned out really good, as expected! My friends didn't like desserts that are too sweet, even though they have sweet tooth.

Besides the cookies, I also wanted to make something "bigger" for them. So I chose this Perfect Fudgey Brownies from Eat and Be Happy blog. It was truly fudgey and good. My friends loved it, and one of them wanted to order this from me again! I have not tried this recipe before, and it was quite daring for me to bake this to give away. :p Fortunately, this first time proved to be a success. Therefore, this is another keeper for me.

May-June period sees a couple of birthday celebrations. My brother-in-law, my father-in-law, my nephew and myself, one after another (not in chronological order). Last weekend, I baked a mocha pound cake again from Rei's blog. And covered it with fondant. My nephew has a stuff toy panda, which I tried to follow it. As I didn't have much time, I decided 3D was too much for me to do, so I made it into 2D only. He was elated when he saw his panda on the cake. I was glad he loved it.

Hi Reese,
Aw, even when you just recovered, better avoid cookies first. I know how it's like not having to bake and eat. Take care.

Hi Laureen,
All thanks to your sharing of the recipe! I made for them, but yet, I didn't try it. I must definitely make again for myself! ;)
