A Busy Week

Yup! Yours truly had a very bz week yet enjoyed every second of it ;-) ...Infact, I do have a brownie baking in the oven as I'm typing this. A former colleague, SD, called me late last night & wanted to order an Almond Brownies for her friend's birthday. Of course I'll be happy to do it...Knowing my brownies will be a part of a special occasion just bring me joy! Thanks SD for your order. Hope to receive more order from you...He...he...he...

Well, while waiting for my brownies to bake, I thought why not use the time to update my blog...I've been lagging in my baking / cooking journal due to my bz week recently. So, here's what I've been up to...

Remember the gingerbread order I told you in my last post?...Well, I'm happy to say that MM is so happy with it. She even told me she didn't even manage to look at each & every one of it as all her office mates couldn't wait to 'adopt' the gingerbread people! So MM, here's some of the 'people' for you to feast your eyes on ;-)

Apart from MM, I did receive another order from my 'sister', FD...She wanted some gingerbread to be given as a gift to her boss. It's such a good feeling knowing my 'people' will be a part of someone's special occasion...Thanks FD for your support! I sure hope your boss will love his gift. Hey, who knows he might just give you a Christmas token...Ha...ha...ha...

Not only was I bz with my gingerbread orders, I was also 'attacked' by brownies orders...SA & hubby, M, two of my loyal supporters & 'cheer leaders' ( he...he..he...) wanted to try my Marshmallow Brownies, so the lovely couple ordered one for their family. Thanks SA  & M for your order. Here's d photo for your viewing pleasure. Many thanks too to my other strong supporter & loyal customer, sweet Miss SHAR for ordering 2 brownies ( Almond & Marshmallow ) within a day. Really glad that you enjoyed it. Oooowh!!! I'm also happy to say that Mr. C ( from my previous post ) loved his Marshmallow Brownies! Thanks Mr. C & sure hope your brownies will arrive safely to Iraq ;-)

In the midst of my hectic schedules, I still squeeze in some time to do other products...Here's some of it ;-)

Oreo Cheesecake - Plain

Oreo Cheesecake - With Chocolate Topping ( Double D Chocolaty Taste!!! )

Trying my hand on a local recipe - Kek Sarang Semut aka Kek Gula Hangus

Previously I always loved to prepare popia aka spring roll for friends who come to visit me...Usually I'll serve it with my special homemade chili sauce. I love eating those & now it's also a favorite of my good friend aka 'Son", RYSC. Few friends had requested that I do a frozen version so that they could always have it at home...What an idea & I'm happy to say that it is now one of my bestseller! Thanks guys for the idea & support ;-)

Those not celebrating it, have a good holiday with your family & friends...Maybe it's d time to catch up on those zzzz or even re-runs of CSI ;-) Merry Christmas everybody!

Gingerbread Oh Gingerbread!

My hands had been so itchy from wanting to type in my new cooking journals...Unfortunately yours truly was quite bz with a sudden wave of brownies orders...Yeayyyyyyyy!! Not that I'm complaining coz it sure makes my day to hear people going ga-ga over my brownies ;-) Infact, I just delivered my Marshmallow Brownies just a short while ago...Thanks SA for your repeat order & your continuous support. It means so much to me! Next week I have another special brownies order from a customer. He would like to send his order to Iraq & requested for a special packaging...I'm just so happy that Mr. C finds my brownies good enuff to be send to his friends in Iraq. Thanks for your support Mr. C! Hhmmm, my brownies flying off to Iraq without me?!!...Huh! So unfair...Ha...ha...

With Christmas being around d corner, going to any shopping malls these days, one cannot run away from hearing all those Christmassy songs & jingles. I was somehow sucked into those frenzy & suddenly had these urge to bake some gingerbread man...Errr, I called it gingerbread people as there's a whole lot of them!

To be honest, while I was decorating it, it was really, really, and I mean REALLY hot that I decided to decorate my 'people' a bit different from the usual gingerbread man...My apologies if some of you out there might find it a bit offensive...Wasn't trying to create havoc or issue but I was influenced by the weather ;-)

Good news though...Some was really keen with my version of gingerbread people that I've been getting some inquiries! Yeayyyy!! Infact, I got a few orders next week, one being from a good friend, MM of Celcom. Thanks MM for being cheeky enuff to order my version of gingerbread people! Ha..ha..ha...

Gotta go now as I have another batch of gingerbread people to bake...Owh! My gingerbread people did have some time to pose for the camera recently, so feast your eyes on their photos  & hope it will cheer up your day ;-)

What's New From My Kitchen

Hey there food lovers!

As of right now, right this minute, I'm just extremely excited over the baking that had been going on in my kitchen...For those who missed out on my latest development aka news, I am now a full time, 24-7 cook!!! Yeayyyy!! It was quite frustrating working 9-5 & then to reach home all tired to do any baking / cook...

Hence, for the love of my passion, I did the craziest thing & resigned!! A gal just need to follow her heart, rite?...Anyway, I've been cooking up a storm in my kitchen & here's my latest creation...I just delivered a 'cake cuppies' ( read more to find out what this is..wink..wink.. ) this afternoon & I'm so happy over it!!

A birthday cake which was ordered by my good friend, RYSC...

An Aidil-Adha cake ordered by my friend, ZRZ...Believe it or not, d cake traveled all d way to Kelantan! Not fair as even I didn't get to travel that far for my raya...Sigh!

My Aidil-Adha gift to my Aunty & her family...A boxful of colorful mini cuppies! Sure hope they like it...

And my latest project was a 'cake cuppies' which was ordered by my Sissy - a nickname we called each other ;-)...Honestly, this is my first time making it but I sure had fun baking & decorating it...

Owhhh! Believe it or not that while baking the cake cuppies at 2am this morning, I went into a baking frenzy ( as usual!! ) & baked myself a marshmallow brownies!! Unfortunately, the aroma was too inviting that I cudn't help myself having it once it's out from the oven!! The marshmallows just melt in my mouth & it's super duper yummy!! I think this is d best brownies I've ever baked...Ha...ha..ha...The photo?...Errr! I was too bz eating it & licking my fingers that I totally forgot to snap d pix...Sorry! My bad!! Maybe next time, ehh...

Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to convey my sincere gratitude to all my family & friends who supported me ever since I started "Ritz Passion"...Your vote of confidence by purchasing my 'comfort food' is greatly appreciated & I hope to give more good & yummy 'comfort food' in years to come. I already have a few ideas up my sleeves ;-)
