Lazy Sunday with Chocolate Chip Cookies & Tea

I made this family's favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies and got it perfect again! Last time I did something wrong and the taste wasn't like I expected. Not that the cookie wasn't good, but the texture was different and I couldn't get the crunchy side of it.

This time I'm truly understand, noted to myself, do not ever change any ingredients that you've used. Such as if you used butter, then don't change it to margarine, if using caster sugar, don't change it with icing, etc. So based on what I've experienced, I'll stick with the rules. Period.

Dilmah-Earl Grey Tea

The cookies filled about 3 regular size of cookie jar, and gone in less than 2 days. It's even better when you eat it fresh from the oven. You could taste there's still a bit of melted chocolate inside.

I'm enjoying my last jar of cookies with a cup of Dilmah-Earl Grey Tea (I love the taste, and the smell!). Oh what a nice lazy sunday :D

Lite Breakfast

When Me & My Husband went to this Japanese Restaurant in Singapore, we had this Salmon Omelete which was very nice.

Craving about that meal for breakfast, I try to make it by myself since the ingredients not that hard to find. I think this is a good options If you'd like your omelette with a bit of variation. Maybe next time I could change the salmon with Tuna, or shrimp, etc.

Enjoy :)

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

I saw this cookie on Dita's blog, and interested to make it. But there's one thing that I couldn't find from the recipe is a Butterscotch chips. So I asked her more about those chips and wondering where I could get them in here (Indonesia). I know how it tasted like, but as I remembered I've never found there's such things in local shops. Since I shouldn't omit the butterscotch chips from the recipe (otherwise it wouldn't be called Butterscotch cookies right?), so there's no way I could make this cookie until I found them.

One day Dita emailed me asking for my address, and curious about it I asked her what for. She said..just wait and see.

Butterscotch Chips

Then one afternoon I got a package from her (this is why she asked my address). She send me a package contains: Butterscotch Chips, Peanut Butter Chips, Dark Chocolate and Pecans. Oh wow! I was very surprised indeed! Couldn't believe that she thought about this since the conversation was months passes by.

Add some Pecans too

It's funny because we made friends because of blogs and haven't met each other. But we keep in touch through blogs, flickr, and through Facebook then we knew that some of my friends are her friends too (what a small world). So having a package from a friend that we haven't met each other is such an overwhelmed feeling.

On Saturday night, while having an enjoyable moment at home, I made this cookie instead of only watching TV. The cookie itself tasted really Good! I really like it very much! The Butterscotch is the 'key' to this cookies, otherwise it'll be a plain butter oatmeal cookie.
