LANGKAWI, MALAYSIA

The other day I was looking at pictures from a blog, A Life Worth Eating, particularly, this post with mouth watering pictures of what seems to be an endless amount of sushi. When coupled with his very make-you-feel-like-you're-eating-it-there-with-him-in-the-restaurant, I almost teared at the thought of such delicious food.


Confession: this link is actually on my bookmarks bar (the fifth one to be exact). Every so often I click it, scroll through the pictures, reading the captions once, twice, then thrice, before I blink and realize I'm still at home, not having the sushi chef in front of me, preparing the uni and placing it on my plate.

TO MELT THE SNOW OUTSIDE

The never ending days of below 20 degrees is making me mourn the loss of Canadian summers, which I've missed last year. Perhaps you may feel the same as me if you've experienced the chill that lingers after two hours of outdoor skating. 






I think I shall renounce all outdoor activities for now until I can see green grass (not that I have been doing much outdoor activities anyway).





In the meantime, please have a look at a fraction of the Asia trip pictures that I still never got around to finish blogging about. So today, sit back, scroll down and let me whisk you away to Thailand (click for the rest)

RECIPE: SOFT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

My mom loves two types of chocolate, and two types only: white chocolate and Reese cups. Specifically Reese cups though, and not other peanut butter chocolate cups. She also likes peanut butter very much so when I suggested we take a bake break from butter cookies and do peanut butter instead, she put down the plastic bags she was holding to wrap the baked butter cookies and went to the cupboards to fetch 2 large jars of crunchy peanut butter.


Do you eat raw dough? I do.

The amount of peanut butter was actually just 1.5 full jars, but we still managed to use all. Here is the recipe I said I would give to you. It is your choice on type of peanut butter, and any toppings you want to add. Vanilla extract also seems pretty extra, but it has become a habit to pour a dash of this flavouring during the process of making baked goods.

P/S


For two days before Christmas, my house smelled like those cookie/cupcake candles from Bath and Body Works from baking cookies and cakes. I will be posting recipes for the desserts above all throughout this month so you can experience the buttery and sugary scent yourselfAt one point I no longer wanted to eat a piece (or two) of fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies, but now looking back, I should have made more to last me until Chinese New Years *sigh*

And now - back to studying for my first actuarial exam which is just a week away!


Dear readers, best of luck to your new years resolutions, as I don't have any!
