Baker’s Bites: Happy 87th Birthday, Lola!

My dad’s mom turned 87 last Saturday. Baked her some chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies to share with everyone for lunch. I love making chocolate chip cookies! They’re always a big hit as proven by the crumbs left from the dozen I left for the house. My dad says the box we gave lola was also wiped out. Hooray!…

Baker’s Bites: The Inception Cookie

I’ve been wanting to try this ever since it popped up on my browser on one of my many blog-hopping sessions. A cookie within a cookie. How genius is that? I was kind of disappointed (maybe I was expecting too much?), but topped with a scoop of Vanilla Almond ice cream, it was perfect! Cool Tip: Cookie dough chilled overnight…

Baker’s Bites: Singapore-Manila Cookies

My friend D-an wanted me to make Chewy Chocolate Cookies with Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips for her brother and mom. I was able to make a batch of these late last year thanks to a rogue bag of said chips. I would later find out that they’re super hard to find here (to prove the fact: I went to five…

Baker’s Bites: Cookie Fail

I’ve been obsessing about these melt-in-your-mouth brownie cookies for a while. I had some egg whites left over from making the Chocolate Turtle Pie for New Year’s so I tried the recipe over the weekend. They came out chewy and too sweet (I didn’t have any dark chocolate around so I used semisweet). Next time, I think I will use…

Baker’s Bites: Chocolate Chunk and Pecan Cookies

Had a small block of chocolate left from my cake pop experiment a few months ago (the end product is in the December issue of Candy!), so I decided to chop them into chunks and mix chopped pecans with it into my cookie batter. Delicious chocolate chunks in every bite! Merry Christmas, everyone! (:

Cupcake Thursday and Friday

Last week, I started bringing cupcakes to work again. I used to make cupcakes every other night (EVERY.OTHER.NIGHT) and bring them to work to sell to my officemates. I didn’t care if I slept late (to bake the cupcakes) and wake up early (to make the frosting). I was at my happiest in the kitchen. I think it was my…

The Return of Macy’s Fields

The past month has revived my baking. It started with the mini cheesecakes I made for our team’s brainstorming. They were really easy to make (they were just your basic baked cheesecake) and putting them in cupcake liners made them easier to serve. We smothered the cakes with Nutella and blueberry preserves. I am drooling just thinking about it. Then…

It’s back!

Hooray! I baked last night. The verdict? (Well, as far as my dad and brothers are concerned) MY BAKING MOJO IS BACK! Ha ha! At first, I thought it was cookie fail again. The cookies looked too brown and felt tough to the touch. But when my brother took a bite, he said it was crunchy at the edge, but…
