During my looong vacation in the Philippines, I did some baking. I've missed baking so much, that I baked three times in two weeks. :)
We lost that cookbook but I can still remember the name of the chocolate chop cookies in that book, Mrs. Field's Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies. Thank goodness for internet, I was able to search for it online and that's the recipe I used during my vacation. It's yummy as expected. :)
The second item I baked is carrot cupcakes. I used the recipe that a friend of mine gave me. It was yummy! We served it at my grandmother's house during a family get-together. They loved it! One of my aunts didn't even knew that it was carrot cake until I told her. :)
More From Magnolia: Recipes from the World Famous Bakery and Allysa Torey's Home Kitchen. But instead of using vanilla frosting, I used cream cheese frosting... perfect!
Now that I was able to bake some goodies again, hubby finally gave in and decided to buy me an oven! Happy-happy joy-joy! I will just buy those table-top/bench-top ovens, and not those that comes with a stove.
I've been out of the house everyday since Monday, looking and canvassing. I saw some already but I don't know which one to buy. There's a DeLonghi AOV842/AOV843, a Tefal OV1002, a Baby Belling (heard some reviews about this... but I'm not familiar with the brand). The search is on... :)
