Question of the Day: Write down something that inspired you today.

I brought some of my cookies to work and gave them to my colleagues.

One of them actually asked me if I could make more for her and she’d just pay me. Since that is part of my plan from the very beginning, I told her I could but I’d have to check my costing first.

Then a former colleague saw my post in Facebook and actually asked me to do the same for her.

Yay! I have market. Progress. 🙂


Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

For my third try in baking cookies I decided to try an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I found online.



I followed the recipe almost to the letter.  Used the same amount of ingredients.  Prepped everything as suggested.

I only made changes of my own during baking.  These I based on observations I had during the first three times I baked.  Instead of using the typical non-stick baking sheet, I used aluminum sheets I found earlier today in the hopes of avoiding burnt bottom.  I also decided to turn the pan around midway through baking to ensure uniform cook on all cookies.

These resulted to a more uniformly, burnt-bottom-free cookies.  Yay! 🙂

Oh and thank you, Smitten Kitchen, because now I know how to judge if cookies are ready to be taken out of the oven.
