sweet indulgence

looks like i've been hit by a muffin bug this week. i kept on posting about muffins. it's okay i guess since muffin is like a best friend. it can be sweet; it can be savory. sometimes a bit tart; another time will be spicy. take your pick. the possibilities are endless. i bet you feel the same way. 

so for yesterday tea time, i made strawberry yogurt muffins with raisins. 
the verdict (and i'd like to quote Simon's favorite three words in AI) :
it. was. outstanding. 

moist, not too crumbly, perfect pair with unsweetened tea...just how a muffin should be.

an apple a day

Mocha muffin with apple, originally uploaded by daisy world.

there's only one apple left in my fridge. one. not to mention a small one.
there goes what i had in mind when i hid them and hoping no one will saw the sweet apples...yeah rite..

still standing with the fridge door open (yeap, i know. energy wasting. but i was hot at that time), i'm thinking. with only one small apple left, theres not much you can do. but, i can make do if not relying on it alone.

there you go, i wheezed some mocha muffin batter and sprinkle diced apple on them. you can't really taste the apple. but the contrast is nice for the picture. hehe..

something sweet

i was out shopping for groceries with my little brother and sister the other day.

as we go through the list, we walked by the baking section and i picked up a few packets of yeast. then my brother said; "ha, angah. why don't you make donuts later...we've got yeast already..." and gave me that cheeky smile of his. i was thinking, why not. we haven't had donuts for a long time. 

but of course, i changed my mind and made something else. i tend to do that every once in a, today i granted his wish. all you can eat donuts!! i make a few choices of toppings; original powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar and my new favorite, chocolate sugar. 

i tell you, it's to die for!! and paired these sweet things with chrysanthemum tea; heaven...'sigh'

long vocation

no. i'm not on vocation. just taking a break from this for a while. honestly, i don't know what i'm going to post. so i'll just ramble a bit here..

i did a lot of baking lately. or more like, i did a lot of bread baking. it's like an itch. i need to bake or i'm becoming restless. good thing is, my family's not complaining. i hate to see the food i made going to waste. 

and i'm totally grateful that my effort is appreciated. ^_^
