Tried out yet another brownie recipe. This time from food recipes section.
Pretty informative site.... what's more there's lots of video demonstrations to teach you step-by-step. Here's a pic for you to drool on...

(Sorry, can't seem to find the link where I got the recipe from.)

Made these lovely muffins for my entire office last week.

Couldn't believe I baked close to 100 over Banana-Walnut muffins and brought it all to office for everyone's breakfast. And I must say, I was pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I was too busy with the baking and packing that I didn't have the time to take a good shot of all my hardwork... But it was all done in good fun. I loved the texture of it... I kept it for almost 3 days and it still remained moist and fluffy. I just love it how my bakes remain as good as if it just came out fresh from the oven.

I have people ordering the muffins from me now :)

Momma's Choco Chip Cookies

Have been on a long hiatus for various reasons... but I'm finally back in the food blogging scene.
It's been almost a year since I've graduated from University and now, getting almost used to the mundaneness of the working corporate lifestyle.

Out of sheer boredom today, pulled out all of my cooking equipments and once again - The Novice Baker is back!
