Day 106 – March 25, 2011

This evening, I finished prepping all the baked goods to ship out to you… This is the last part I had to put together.

One ingredient is gelatin! The biggest pain in the procedure

Yay.. now all the baked goods are done and ready for shipping! To celebrate, I had a popsicle and naturally, someone was interested in tasting it.

He even wanted to eat the stick

Awww closeup of the cute crooked teeth

Tomorrow, I’ll be shipping your box after the gym!

Day 105 – March 24, 2011

After I got home today, I baked 3 things. This is a new recipe I tried. Any guesses?

Hint: they're not cake balls

During the baking, I looked out the window to see my favourite thing..

Pink clouds.. that don't look so pink here 😦

Anyhow, they were fabulous in person.

Despite all that baking, I didn’t finish the cake balls or another baked surprise… that will be for tomorrow!

Day 103 – March 22, 2011

Today was a regular Tuesday… I worked from home and then went to the gym after work. I went to grab some groceries after the gym. Once I was home, I let EE know that she could pick up Mirana as she was home from her vacation. I got all the stuff ready for EE and I guess Mirana was ready to go home.

She was waiting for her mama in the box

A little after EE left, I decided to make the manicotti I’d been wanting to make for a few weeks.

Rolled up

Fresh out of the oven

They were good, despite slightly screwing up the recipe. They just needed a little bit more flavour.. next time 😀

Day 99 – March 18, 2011

Today, I pretty much walking around asleep for the first half of the day. I had to bake the cookies I had rolled out last night and then after work, I decorated them. While I was prepping the royal icing, KS called to meet up. I offered to meet her half way.

Forgotten phone

Once I got home, I started decorating the cookies. This was by far, the worst time I’d had with royal icing.. I got it all over my dress, the counter, and even the floor. I will not be trying to wrap the icing in plastic wrap before I put it in the decorating bags again! Anyway.. I was glad to have finished the cookies so they can fully dry before I drive out to my cousin’s.

They were far from perfect, but they turned out alright 🙂

All finished!!

It’s late and I should get up early to drive out tomorrow…

p.s. Happy 10 month anniversary 😀


Day 88 – March 7, 2011

This morning, I had an appointment which threw my day off a bit, having to move my morning meeting to the afternoon.

I keep seeing the Metro train...

On my way home, I remembered that you’d asked me for 5 Hour Energy so I picked some up. After I got home, I finished the cake balls.

First I melt the chocolate in the microwave

Then we dip & let the chocolate harden

Once the outer chocolate hardered, I packed everything and had to leave out some stuff. Maybe next time you’ll get a double package!

I’ll be sending the package tomorrow 🙂

Day 87 – March 6, 2011

Today, it was really really hard to get up! I didn’t do a whole lot — I went to get some of the good frosting to make cake balls and some chocolate bark.

Crumbled cake

Balls about to go into the fridge

They’re now ready for the chocolate coating but that will have to wait until tomorrow! I gotta go to bed as it’s late!

Day 76 – February 23, 2011

Today, while reading my blog subscriptions, I saw a recipe for coconut almond crusted tilapia… I was going to make some tilapia tostadas but the photos from the blog looked really good, I decided to improvise. I mixed ground almonds, whole wheat bread crumbs, salt, and paprika. It was really good!!

It wasn't burnt...

Eddie really liked the tilapia too but I didn’t take a photo.

All day long, I was craving chocolate baked goods and finally settled on a chocolate chip cookie recipe from Cooking Light, but instead of regular All Purpose flour, I used whole wheat.

They were alright...

Eddie wasn’t so interested in these!

So glad the week is more than half way done 😀
