[1: 1,611 of 10,000] Freshly Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies For A Burn Scar

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I cooked some cookies in the oven last October 1st and when I pulled the tray out after my first batch, the tray slides and hit a portion of my right arm. Now, I am carrying a scar that is an inch long. I didn’t have scar on September 30th but for the sake of bringing freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for my office mates and neighboring offices, and since I am sometimes naturally rushing and clumsy, I hurt myself, darn to no surprise :D.

I am very behave not scratching or poking it, I just massage it gently and hoping the mini swelling subsides naturally as my body’s defense system cures it. Yes, I believe our body can heal itself and I am counting nature to deal with this one. I just thought the deed I did was of a good intention so I will receive miracle for this little loving scar.

The good thing about it is it is one of those scars that when I see it, I smile without a hint of bitterness and letting go of the regret of how careless I was. I know not all life’s scars are the same, some are rooted so deep in our being that it is too painful to face it, but we always need to.

I’ll give it few more days and then I’ll visit the pharmacy and see if there’s a real remedy to get the scar off. Yay! Or research for something natural to get rid of it, if only there’s a type of eraser for skin that isn’t painful. 😛

[1: 1,443 of 10,000] Go On, Bake “Puto” In An Oven

I am probably one of the few Filipino-Chinese who cook that don’t have proper steamer at home. Last time I moved to a new apartment, I thought it’s a good idea to just throw the old ones and still didn’t get a replacement. Aside from not able to cook Puto (Filipino cake), so is Siomai and Dumpling.

At this age, I thought I would find everything in the Internet, especially about cooking frenzy from YouTube. To my surprise, I couldn’t find an instruction on how can I cook “Puto” using the oven. We got cupcake tray and an oven so I thought that should make any cake rise.

I wanted to eat the puto and I want to eat cheddar cheese so I decided that today I will try to bake it in the oven with the basis on how my sissy was baking her muffins and cupcakes.

  • Took the 400 g premixed Puto (smells like vanilla) and
  • added 2 cups of water,
  • 1 cup of sugar (quite a lot I must say),
  • I made a mistake of adding 5 table spoon instead of teaspoon of olive oil, oh well, it was EVOO so it must still be good?! 😀
  • After mixing all the above ingredients, I pour it half way (or more to some) into the cupcake paper cup, and
  • top it with cheddar cheese.

Baked it for 15 minutes at 200 degree celcius.

Viola! 16 putos risen! They look and smell delectable.

Now, I got food for the whole day! 🙂 Happy tummy!


[1: 1,331 of 10,000] The Beginning Of A Culinary Experiment Or An Elementary Learning

One of the reasons my sissy and I are willing to move to a new apartment is to find a completely bare kitchen so I can buy her an oven. She promised that she will make our apartment smelling so sweet with lovely cakes and delicious muffins.

The first attempt is an Ina Garten’s version of Baked Macaroni. It looked promising from the oven, it turned out just fine but looking fab with the red Staub pot, but I got to admit that I need another round of attempt. Life is nice and filled with new things to learn (like if you say pre heat the oven, how long does that take?) and experiment (use another type of cheddar instead of the suggested extra sharp cheddar, which we didn’t find).
