Pat A Cookie, Pat A Cookie!...



So what has Daphne been up to? Trying to be a housewife, that's what!


And am very proud to say there's been no disaster, yet...Lol...

Let's just say 3 people have been extraordinarily kind to me (2 of which happen to be my professors), and went out of their way to show their kindness (which I never expected at all). Touched by their gesture, and after discussing with mum about the appropriateness, I have decided to reciprocate by sending them a tiny 'Thank You' gift...


So what can a broke college student do, that is nice, and yet will work nicely for the pocket?

Bake! That's what...Lol...




Chocolate batter...Needless to say we found excuses left-and-right to eat the batter!



Eh, not bad lar ok? Our (me and a friend) first real attempt at baking from scratch, and we came up with a nice set of cookies, so not bad lar, ok?





Super-sinfully-chocolatey chocolate-chip cookies!




And the final product!



In the end, we had enough left-over for me and my friend to enjoy among ourselves. And heck, each 'pot' of cookies (see above) came up to like $4-5, which is great! All thanks to Dollarama, where you can get the pots, ribbons and and plastic wrap for like a dollar (highest would be $2) each!






And a tired Daphne goes to sleep on the floor...;)




And what do we do at the end of the day? Laze like a cat lor...Lol!

Looks like your first baking adventure turned out pretty alright, eh Daphne? Glad to see things are going well. You would make a very good cat - you got the whole "down time" thing down to an art!

Wait a minute... that last pic... was it because you were tired or was it because you ate the cookie?

Hehehe...

Hey, those cookies look good. What recipe did you use? And it was very nice of you to send thank you gifts. I'm curious what you professor did!

HI Drew,

Thanks for coming by!

The baking adventure was alright...Hehe...'Not a disaster', in my books, is alright!

Lol, I would definitely make a VERY good cat. I can outsleep a cat, if given the chance. And I love to laze, and eat. So yeah, human version of Garfield, sounds very nice! ;)

Hello Kak Pi,

Eh, tired la wei...Not kena poisoning, ok? Work hard, eat hard, and with the heat, you would want to curl up like a cat on the cool floor, too! ;)

Hi Anon 23:40,

Thanks for coming by...

I went on AllRecipes and took the recipe from there. You can find the exact recipe here

I didn't use white chocolate chips though (as I don't fancy white or dark chocolate much)...So my recipe had less chips, in a way...

But still sinfully-chocolatey those cookies turned out!

Hi Eric,

LOL! Anybody can purr! If you can curl your tongue, that is...;)

Hi Uncle Jimmy,

LOL! I will settle for not poisoning myself or other people. We will leave the chef-ing to everyone else! ;)
