Family Favourites....Home baked. Pt 1

Fruit Pastry

Banana Cake

Chicken Bun

Mini Pizza

Apple Pie


London Almond cookies my style

I love trying out new receipes which look delicious but simple to make with easy to find ingredients. Not all the receipes I tried turn out well. I know its good if the kids loves the end products but if they just took a piece, well either daddy and mummy have to finish the whole tray or after a few days if still no takers it will go right into the bin.

But I will always keep on trying out new ones.

Above are some of the receipes that I've tried which I learned from the cookery/baking classes I took on some weekends and some I got from the internet. Will update more pictures if time permits.

Bad mother...?

Been crying my eyes out thinking about what might have been. Where did I go wrong. Have been doing my best in trying to be a good mother. Eversince there were babies I did all I thought was the right thing to do. I don't know how to put my feelings into words but let God be the judge. I feel so physcially and mentally exhausted as of now.

Have been in the down mode since yesterday. Dear Lord, Please show me the right way. Amen.

'Am I a bad mother?'

Am I a bad mother? Been asking myself eversince. I just read a status in a friend's FB where she published a result slip of her daughter's recent major examination. Well, her daughter got straight As or why else would she published it in her FB. And one of the comment by her friend was ' You're a good mother'! Is that implying that those whose children doesn't have strings of As are bad mothers. You tell me!

My daughter had also sat for this exam but her result is not that outstanding even though she passed. I thank God for that. I was quite disappointed no doubt but she did her best and that's her best. Doesn't mean that if you can't score strings of As you won't be successful in life in future. Cos a lot of those average students are more successful and outstanding later in life. You can't judge a person from his examination results or strings of As in their younger years. Some children matured later than others. We heard a lot of stories about from rags to riches.

I pray that my children will be successful in their adult life and make me proud of them. I love my children very much even if they are just average students. They are the love of my life.
