Night baking

Finally, I am able to sit down.  Time to cool off after being in front of the hot stove.  Today’s menu for the family is just rice and black pepper beef.  Kids’ favourite and easy to cook dish.

Yesterday, after work, as I was walking home, I decided to try out the choc chips cookies recipe from my colleague.  This recipe was given to me months ago and only now I tried it out.

So the kids and I, we did night baking together.  My eldest and youngest had no choice but to help because our electric mixer went missing on me hehee 😉

So the creaming was done by hand … we took turns to do it and though the cookies turn our well, I think with an electric mixer it would have been better.

On another note, looks like it’s time to get a new mixer.  Maybe should hint hint to my daughters to get it for me as a birthday present 😉

Okay back to the cookies, verdict from my gals and my husband (who had just came back from work and had just popped 3 cookies into his mouth) …. “Very GOOD!” 🙂
