Thick and Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies

Made cookies for the kids yesterday and though this cookies were delicious, mine didn't came out thick at all! I don't know if I overmixed the batter but I noticed that the batter weren't thick so I was expecting it would spread out in the end. And I was right! The first batch became giant cookies so on the next I tried to scoop it on a tablespoon. It came out just right.

Adriel's 7th Birthday!

Had the pleasure of baking my nephew's 7th birthday cupcakes yesterday and I did 1 dozen vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. I bought ready made edible toppings which has a design of football and basketball. What I did that is different from before was the frosting. This one's more stabilized than the buttercream frosting that I used before. Eventhough I did not put it on the ref, the swirls held its shape and did not melt.

I also did Baked Mac with a different recipe this. I used a 9x13 non-stick pan and this has more cheese than the last Baked Mac that I did before.

We had a lot of good time on my nephew's birthday eventhough we didn't had a party just like the other kids that had 7th birthday. What's important is family time and that's what we had yeterday :)

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

For our breakfast yesterday, I did something different. We had sandwich that was rather unusual coz we always have fried rice, hotdogs and eggs or sometimes our leftover food from our dinner. Since I wanted to use my mother's griller that she bought from SM, I thought it was the perfect timing to use it so I made Grilled Cheese Sandwich for our breakfast.

This one's so easy and I will guarantee you that kids will love this! Try making this for your breakfast, a no sweat easy recipe that your family will surely love.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

1 loaf of Gardenia bread (or any bread/tasty of your choice)
slices of cheese (I bought American Cheese, or you could use quickmelt cheese)
slices of bacon

1. Put the pan on stove in medium heat till hot.
2. Add the butter then put the slices of bread. If it was a little brown already, put your cheese and bacon and cover the other bread with another slice.
3. Heat till the cheese begins to melt.
4. Repeat the procedure till you run out of cheese..haha!

Fudgy Brownies

Made this Fudgy Brownies yesterday using my 10x13 in baking pan instead of the 9x13 pan requirement. I do not have a 9x13 but the brownies still turned out fine although of course it became a little thinner.

The only complaint that I have with this recipe is that I had little bits of flour(or baking soda) on the finished product although I sifted them before mixing. They looked liked bits of white chocolate chips on my brownies though they didn't made a significant difference with regards to taste. I will make this again and I will already use a 9x13(I just wish I have one already by the time I make this) and I will see to it that there would be no bits of flour/soda on the batter before baking it :)

Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake

Happy New Year everyone! How was your New Year? As for us, we just stayed in the house on new year's eve as well as the new year itself. We didn't spent the new year outside unlike christmas. We had some relatives visiting us in our house and I pretty much did nothing on new year's day.

For media noche dessert, my original plan was to make baked mac but unfortunately I was so unlucky to find parmesan as well as mozarella cheese on any of the supermarkets that I went. I think all the people went panic cheese buying coz I really can't find any at all! So I just did graham dessert and Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake. This cake was really delicious! Not too sweet at all. I just don't understand why my chocolate glaze wasn't thick enough. Anyway, still yummy eventhough I didn't achieved the glaze that I want for my cake.
