Winter Soup With Meatballs

During winter time we prefer to eat something warm and it's almost every day I serve soup for the family. For my soup usually I use season vegetables.... it's not only healthy and delicious, but also full of vitamines... things that we need against the cold and winter period.

Further, there is nothing special with my soup except that this soup surely will keep me warm and healthy to pass winter season... ^_^

Little mermaid for my little girl

Today is my daughter becoming 5 years old. Her big day today, because today they also celebrate carnival party at school. What a lucky girl :o)).

Before she went to school she asked me to bake b'day cake for her, and she chose Ariel from little mermaid. I did try my best to copy Ariel from disney book. The outcome wasn't so bad since it was the first time for me to do the patchwork and I kind enjoyed it too. The most important when she got back from school, she was so happy with her cake and just couldn't wait to eat it.

On Saturday, she still has a big party and some friends from school are invited too. It's also going to be her big day, because it's going to be her first b'day party with friends at home. Oh, it feels like she's going 16th.. my goodness!

This is just a simply vanilla cake filled with whipped cream and covered with fondant. The size is just 15 cm (diameter) but it can be eaten for 6 up to 8 people.

Cars McQueen look-alike for Reza b'day

Reza is a son of my friend. He's turning 4 last week. He asked cupcakes for his friends at school. He likes cars a lot, especially from disney figure, lightning McQueen from Cars movie. Well, I tried my best to satisfy him.. and voila, here is the result...

I made the figures from marzipan and the checkboard from fondant. Only too bad, some cakes were dried out and flopping out from the case. It was a bit struggle to fix them, but still, two of the cupcakes couldn't be fixed. I had to be really careful when I put the decorations on them.. to cover the damage.. pfff... :(

Banana Chocolate Cookies

It's been snowing very hard today. Some roads are closed, some places are unreachable due to long queue. In the weather like this I prefer to stay home. I did some cleaning here and there, played some games in facebook, hmmm couldn't go out.. terrible & boring. Then I decided to start baking in the afternoon.

Today we bake Banana Chocolate Cookies. I found the recipe from children cooking book just to make sure I won't make any mistake of baking it... *-*

Banana Chocolate Cookies

3. Sift the flour and speculas spices. Add the milk in so that the mixture is becoming soft. Fold through the chocolate chips.
