Peanut Butter Cookies for You *and* Your Dog!

It’s peanut butter time!

Adapted from LiisaN's recipe

Ingredients 

Directions:

  1. Cream together the sugars, butter, peanut butter.
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together and add gradually until blended well.
  4. Roll into tablespoon size balls.
  5. Roll cookie dough balls into sugar.
  6. Place on cookie sheets- do not mash with fork in normal “peanut butter cookie” fashion!
  7. Bake at 350° oven for 11-13 minutes.
  8. Devour – interestingly, this cookie is best eaten cooled (it gets crunchy)!

NB: Don’t serve cookies too warm to your dog! Remember this is a SNACK – not a meal replacement. Discontinue serving if dog gets diarrhoea or other digestive issues. Feed with your discretion.

But ALL dogs love peanut butter! And it’s good for them!

How to Make a Heart-Shaped Egg

 

Taken from Anna the RedHow make a heart shaped egg <3

[How to make a ❤ shaped hard boiled egg]
– Egg
– Milk carton or any juice carton (cut open, washed well and dried)
– Chopstick (round one is ideal)
– Rubber bands

Step 1: Cut milk carton and fold it in half lengthwise.

How make a heart shaped egg <3

This is all you need. (besides an egg) The milk carton is about 3″ X 8″.

Step 2: Make a hard boiled egg.

Step 3: While the egg is still warm, peel the egg and put the egg on the milk carton, place a chopstick on the center of the egg, and put rubber bands on the both ends.

If you don’t have a round chopstick maybe you can put a skewer inside a straw and use it. (If you use a disposable chopstick, the middle part of the heart will probably look funky.)

How make a heart shaped egg <3

Make sure the egg is freshly boiled and warm. Otherwise the egg might break from the pressure.

How make a heart shaped egg <3

It’s hard to see but you want the chopstick to dig into the egg.

Step 4: Leave it for about 10 minutes. (Keep the egg in the fridge if it’s summer time.)

Step 5: Take the chopstick off and cut the egg in half.

Hard boiled eggs are so soft, smooth and easily modified.

It’s cute as is.

But the heart shaped yolk makes it even more adorable! Also every pair is very unique, so no other pair is like it! Kind of romantic, isn’t it?

You can put them in the bento just as they are.

Or you can cut the bottom of the egg to make them stand.

Cupcake Ideas I’d Love to Try… Someday (Hopefully Soon!)

Was thinking of cupcakes and what to bake for my grandparents and family for Valentines Day. Relatives are also coming over so a homemade surprise would be nice. Everyone loved the AT cupcakes… So looking for inspiration on the net, I found all these (see below).

Between my part-time job as a law clerk, my full-time job as a law/meco and student, if I get the time, I’d love to try these.

NB: None of these photos below are my own. They were cut from Google or Pinterest. Aren’t they amazing. Do they ignite the baker in you?

It’s Valentines Cake Pops!

After baking plain cupcakes using a mix, I decided to get creative with marzipan for my younger cousin’s Halloween party. Since he happened to be going through an Adventure Time phase then, here^ is what eventuated. 😀

P.S. If you are really short on time, a good tip would be to buy ready-made plain cupcakes from the local supermarket and frost/ice/cover them to add a personal touch.
