Selfish

If there is one thing about me that is true, it is that I am a generous person—especially when it comes to sharing food. However, I am not perfect! My generosity has two limitations: Do not abuse my generosity and do not steal my blueberry muffin away from me! Never...I mean never, take away that delicious muffin away from me because you will see monstrosity that you've never seen before!

Like yesterday, my co-worker Irina, loves sweet treats and coffee. I had this nice thought that I should ask her out to get some coffee and treats since she like stuff like that. I messaged her and she was ecstatic with the idea. So we did, we hopped from Starbucks, Panera, and to The Cookie Company (with those delicious muffins in my mind). She got herself a chocolate pastry and some cookies from Panera, while I got an almond bear claw. We finally landed on The Cookie Company (which was my choice of store in the first place) and finally seeing the muffins right in front of my eyes πŸ˜ƒ(which I was rubbernecking to earlier). There was one particular muffin that I suspected as the blueberry kind---my favorite kind. To my delight, the lady proved my suspicion, but to my horror---Irina put her grabby fingers to MY (☉_☉) muffin! I swear πŸ™ to all my departed love ones, what I did after seeing her stealing my blueberry muffin was not premeditated--it was pure instinct! I swatted her hand away (☉_☉) and I said in what I hear a menacing voice, "what do you think you're doing lady?" Deep inside, I have this two-personality thing going on, struggling with pure electric of scare and hate, telling myself to "calm the fudge down!" but my other self--the selfish one? was yelling,
"Oh hell no! 😠She didn't just take my gridarnmotherfudger muffin away from me!" I myself was in total shock hearing myself with pure selfishness in my voice. I could not believe I was mean to her over a muffin! But you know what? I got over it! Sometimes, we have got to stand up for ourselves even for a muffin! I was nice enough to ask her to go outside and get some treats (which I rarely do), I was the one who wanted to go to The Cookie Company! I was the one who eyed the muffins first, and I was the one who asked the lady what kind of motherfudger muffin it was, and she dared taking it away from me??? America? We have a freaking major problem! I grabbed my muffin and asked the lady if she has any white cranberry cookies and went straight to pay my two treats from TCC for the day! My body stopped the irrational but dignified convulsion of irritation and started smiling at her while she’s getting herself some more cookies for her and for her children. I forgave her for her faux pas. See? I am nice. I forgive people and I smile at shizz like that--just don't take my muffin away from me!!!

You might think how selfish and petty I am, and you might be right! Just don't take away the fact that  you don't know the feeling of rubbernecking and anticipating a delicious blueberry muffin touching your buds, tasting the explosion of delicious blueberries and the fluffiness of it's cooked batter only for it to be taken by someone else! Just look at that picture inserted, the one with bitten muffin! You know what? I forgave myself for being such a petty, twitchy person. In fact, as I am savoring my muffin right at this moment; all I can think is that I think I'll have another tea with that.πŸ˜‰

2018

This is my first post in months and I am excited to start with something new in my household. A new oven! This oven came with the house when we bought it on 2003, and it served us well until month ago. It started turning off by itself and as much as I loved it, I needed a new one.  Like what Ms.Streisand said, "some good things never last."  It was like ending a good relationship. I honed my kitchen talent with that oven so I thankfully said goodbye to my it by baking one last dessert.


I found this delicious looking cake from Smitten Kitchen and tweaked some ingredients for my liking and what I have available on that day. The original recipe is made with blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I ate all my blackberries two days before I decided to make the cake (and too lazy to go run to the store) I settled for just rasp and blueberries that day. To make up for the lack of berries, I added orange juice instead:) I also opted in for simple glaze instead of what she had on her recipe. So without further ado, here's the tweaked recipe for what I call Orange-Berries Cake.



I know that I will have plenty of time baking with my new oven and hopefully it will last just as long, if not longer than my old oven. Please do try this recipe of feel free to visit the original recipe. Ta.ta. for now!

Silky eyemasks


I have been experiencing some restless nights. Part of that is my body's time clock and the other part is my room is not dark enough for me. I have a blackout curtain that is supposed to block any light from outside but it is still not dark enough for me. This is why I am very excited to try this chic pink Oosilk eye mask that I got in the mail. Unlike some other eye mask, this one is silky and skin friendly. I just tried it and it did provide some extra blockage for the light. Most of all, it is not only silky and adjustable but it comes with different colors as well. You do not have to settle on one color, you can have a his and her eye mask to claim ownership before getting a good night's sleep! This is a perfect gift for anybody so visit Oosilk and get yours now!
