On Saturday mornings when we don’t have anything planned for the day, I come home after my workout with baking on my mind. I take my time making and eating my breakfast and then I read cooking magazines and go over recipes on my laptop that I have bookmarked during the week. I think of […]

After the rain we had this week, the sun finally came out in time for the weekend. We wanted to soak up the rays before the next rain comes our way. We spent the early part of the evening in Anaheim’s Garden Walk. It’s a few blocks from Disneyland and not too far way from […]

Double Chocolate Brownies

I had a lovely run at the park this morning. I am trying to run consistently so I can get back my running mojo. I seem to lose running steam whenever I don’t do it consistently. I have been spending time at the gym or hiking this past summer and Fall season seems to be […]

Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

It has been awhile since I’ve made muffins. So long that I forgot the last time I made them and searched the blog and see the last time I used my muffin tin. Can I just say how great it is to use keywords and search for certain things that have happened in your life […]

What a great weekend I had. Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes to Chris. He said Thank You to you all. I got to bond with this little one (Jonah, my newborn nephew,  3 days old). His face has a lot of expressions and he has a strong grip too. I let him hold […]

The week has just started but I feel like I’m getting ready for the weekend again. I have the next 2 days off from work to go on a fun road trip 🙂 Well, it will be fun once we get to our destination. During my gym session this morning, I actually noticed the improvement […]

It was raining all night last night and all day today. It was really cozy inside the house and the perfect day for baking 🙂 I was planning to eat breakfast burrito today but since I woke up with rain outside, I did a switcheroo and ate my usual breakfast lately, protein oatmeal with melted peanut […]

With family staying with us for the holidays, my usual morning routine has changed. I’m spending more time chatting and catching up in the morning  and we are also eating more food than usual. Since I’m not cooking just for myself anymore, one way that I’ve streamlined breakfast is to prep the ingredients the night […]

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love baking. Whenever I am in the kitchen baking, I go to my relaxing place, where I have the music in the background and I breathe the sweet aroma swirling around me. I bake all year long. But throughout the year, I bake mostly healthy treats like batches of snack bars here and there, […]

Now That’s Ugly

The ugly part of this post is towards the end. But first, lets talk about pretty and delicious desserts. During my POM dinner party, I made some treats that I gave away with my party guests goodie bags. I was inspired by Heather’s Maple Nut Oaties and adapted these from her original recipe. POM, Chocolate […]
