Hey guys, what's the progress on the Carols? I'm done, just brushed them up a little bit! You know, apart from the regular Christmas stuff, I came across something very interesting - Greetings from Space! Now, don't think we are having an alien attack before the Holidays, it's just something that I found out on the net! Would'nt it be just cool, if we could kind of see Santa in a space suit, and the reindeers could be jet-propelled deers... Hehe, I don't think 'Rudolph' would appreciate this change much, what say?

Neway, before I start saying too much on this space theme (it kinda stuck to my brain)... here's a cool link that has some 'spacial' greetings to check out!

Snow, Carols and Snowmen! It just couldn't get any better! And of course, if U could throw in a couple of cupcakes and a mug of cocoa... well! I have also decided to be a lot more proactive and get things moving 'coz today morning I realized that there's just mere week left for the D-day - Christmas...

So people, get your carols ready like me, whip up some fancy cakes and cookies and just do not forget to build a snowman! I love snowmen. Though they have a short life, I like seeing their 'berry' eyes twinkling at me! And if U do not get enough snow, well check out these cool ecards on Build A Snowman Day, and for added joy, here's an easy snowman cookie recipe!

Here are the things you need:
* Vanilla Wafers
* White Frosting
* Misc. Items to decorate (See Below)

This is the way to prepare:
Use 3 vanilla wafers per snowman. Lay the wafers in a row with edges touching; one will be the head and the other two will be the body. Spread white frosting on the vanilla wafers.
Now you are ready to decorate your snowmen!

Some tips on decorations:

* Raisins (eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, etc.)
* Red Hots (eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, etc.)
* m&m's (eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, etc.)
* Chocolate Chips (eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, etc.)
* Shoe String Licorice (mouth)
* Pretzel Sticks (arms)

So, just remember to get creative and have fun!

Hey people, hope U guys had a great weekend so far. I'm was lazing around as usual (the second best that I do, apart from eating!!). We had a host of celebratory stuff over this weekend. I saw few people celebrating Hanukkah, a Jewish event and if U wanna have the Christmas spirit infused in it... go for Chrismahunukwanzakah! That's cool isn't it?

There was also Misa de Gallo and Las Posadas, in Philippines. I found about all these on the net. It feels great to have an Asian touch to a holiday tradition! And last, but not the least was Cookie Cutter Day, and I'm sure U can kind of guess what I did... eat cookies! Come on, what's the use of celebrating cookie cutter day if U can't get to eat cookies! They make great gifts too - check out this simple recipe that can be eaten was well as gifted !

3/4 cup Golden Crisco or Butter-flavored Crisco (shortening)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Coloured decorations or icing

  • Cream Crisco, sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl at medium speed until light and creamy.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture, mixing on low speed until well blended.
  • Cover dough and chill 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Roll half of dough at a time. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut in desired shapes.
  • Place on ungreased baking sheets. Roll leftover pieces.
  • Sprinkle with coloured decorations or leave plain to decorate when cool. Bake at 375°F for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are light brown.
  • Cool slightly, then remove to cooling rack.

Hey, are all your trees bought? It's Buy A Tree Day people, and here's just a friendly reminder to get your tree looking 'tree-mendous'! Getting your trees also point towards decking your halls. There's actually not much time left and even I'm lagging behind in the decorating stuff! I just wished some cousins of mine residing in greece, a happy tree decorating day, with these ecards. They are quite cool!

Speaking of which, my mom baked some yummy cupcakes for me... they were just plain 'n simple chocolate cupcakes, but that was enough to send me into a swoon! She did another thing and that really added flavor to them, she used 'perfectly chocolate' chocolate frosting and I guess, that made the cupcakes even richer and intense!

Here's the recipe, to try out:

3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
1-1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

  • Beat butter until softened. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Next add eggs, one at a time, beating 30 seconds after each addition.
  • Then measure the flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and espresso powder into a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine. Do the same with the milk and vanilla into a measuring thing.
  • Add about a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar and beat to combine. Add about a half of the milk/vanilla and beat to combine.
  • Continue adding, alternating between dry and wet and finishing with the dry.
  • Scoop batter into cupcake cups about 3/4’s full. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until done.

* PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE" CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Melt (1/2 cup) butter or margarine and stir in 2/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa. Add 3 cups powdered sugar alternately with 1/3 cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract beating to spreading consistency. Makes about 2 cups frosting.

I'm in the mood for Christmas totally... and my heart just gladdened when walking back home today, I saw a bunch of Poinsettias! They are a mystery plant all rite... There's so many myths and legends associated with the plant. Poinsettias are actually native of Southern Mexico, Central America and Africa. They also grow in the wild in Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

There's a Mexican legend that explains how it got associated with Christmas. A child (some sites say a girl, some a boy) couldn't afford a gift for Christ on Christmas Eve. So she picked some weeds from the side of the road. The child understood that the gift didn't need to be great. It just had to be given with love and would be acceptable in God's eyes. When she brought the weeds into the church, it blossomed into red and green flowers!

The Mayan Indians believed that poinsettias are powerful creatures from another world while the Aztecs saw the poinsettia as a symbol of purity. Today, we know the poinsettia to be Christmas flowers. And the best part is... that the red really goes well with the Christmas decor!

P.S - Before I forget, just like other flowers, poinsettias are good for gifting! But, if your loved ones are far, make use of this ecard site to wish them a pre-christmas gift with a bunch of love!

Hey people, today is a gr8 day.. Today's the Birthday of UNICEF - United Nations Children's Fund. It was founded today back in 1946. Do U know where the 'E' came from in the acronym? Well, until the 1953, it was United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund – and we still use the same acronym. Besides, it's easier to pronounce it right? Visit the UNICEF Voice of Youth pages to play some interactive games and learn more. "The State of the World's Children" is the title UNICEF has for 2007 on the official UNICEF site.

You know something that we use maybe almost everyday. We're thankful it exists especially when we're stuck in traffic. What is it? It's Radio. And today is Radio Day. It is believed that Guglielmo Marconi sent the first transatlantic wireless message (from England to Canada) this very day in 1901. That makes over 105 years ago!

Hellooo... It's sunday nite and that means a new week's starting and that also means more classes and exams... sigh! But, something really gladdened my heart on friday, and that was celebrating Brownie Day with lotsa brownies! Yummm, it was simply yumm. This holiday season is really not doing me any good with all these goodies on display. It's was almost a crime to have even Pastry Day lurking on saturday, but hey, I resisted myself to one wee little pastry only!

Another thing that also crossed my mind was, Christmas Cards! With Christmas cards, you really have to hurry up... come on, you can't send a card after the holidays are over. So, I made few and I hope you guys did the same too. If not, get going soon with them. It's really easy 'coz all U need is to get your creative ideas flowing! Time for me to sigh off too... I gotta go and hunt for few brownie recipes and promise to post them soon too!

Hey, have U people made your Christmas wreaths yet? If not, get going 'coz today's Make A Wreath Day... and there's not much time left to Ho Ho! I like the concept of wreaths. Don't you? A simple wreath adds so much color and makes a simple door way so festive to look at... it can also be a very innovative and sweet gift if U add something special and really personalize it! Celebrating the holidays, especially Christmas is just doubled with all these simple old time traditions.

Speaking of which, today is also a day to celebrate something out of our childhood... Cotton Candy! Ahh, the sticky feel of cotton candy on the faces just take U back to the playground and the fairs. A ride on the carousel and a cotton candy stick on one hand, was the idea of ultimate joy! If U like invention and being adventurous, then here's a cotton candy making that I found... take a look!

Cotton candy is nothing but pure sugar. To make the sugar 'cottony', you need:
  • Heat to melt the sugar and turn it into a liquid.
  • A set of very small holes that the liquid sugar can flow through to form threads of sugar.
  • A spinning head that slings the liquid sugar outward so it is forced through the holes.
  • A bowl to catch the threads.

The head contains the heater to melt the sugar and make it liquid. Then, by spinning the head, the cotton candy machine forces the liquid sugar out through tiny holes in the head. The instant the thin threads of sugar hit the air, they cool and re-solidify, so in the bowl of the machine a web of sugar threads develops. The web is easily collected on a paper cone. If you mix water with cotton candy it instantly dissolves, and you can see that it's nothing but a tablespoon or two of sugar filling the entire bag. It's amazing how much you can charge for sugar, air and a little coloring!

You know, my days are going to be filled with Wrangler, Levis and Gap! It's Blue Jeans Day people, and time to celebrate the 'most' important piece of clothing that was ever discovered! Let's face it... our pair of blue jeans occupies the most coveted position in our wardrobe and we would probably be totally lost without it. So 'jean' up and get on the move!

Well, to end on a sweet note... it's also Sacher Torte Day. Sacher Torte is actually an Austrian dessert... a chocolate cake that was first made by Klemens Wenzel von Metternich (that's a mouthful!) and registered by the Hotel Sacher. The cake consists of two layers of dense, not overly sweet chocolate dough with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing with shreds of chocolate on the top and sides. This is traditionally eaten with whipped cream... (Oh boy, I'm drooling!). Here's a recipe of the Sacher Torte that I found on the net... You guys can try it out!

Ingredients:
225 g dark chocolate
1.5 dl almonds
225 g butter
3 dl sugar
6 egg yolks
1.5 dl white flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
6 egg whites

Icing and filling:
200 g dark chocolate
1/2 Tbs cooking oil
Apricot jam
  • Set oven to 175C and melt the chocolate.
  • Next blanch, peel and grind almonds and mix with the flour and baking powder.
  • Blend sugar and butter until white and fluffy, adding the egg yolks, one at a time, to butter-sugar mixture.
  • Stir in melted chocolate and the almond mixture.
  • Then Whip egg whites to hard foam and fold in. Pour batter into baking pan lined with baking paper.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes.Cool and spilt in two to spread the apricot jam in between.
  • Finally melt the chocolate, spread over the cake and allow it to cool again.
  • Serve cold with whipped cream.

9 Tbsp. sugar

  • Coarsely chop 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and fold into meringue. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Drop meringues by tablespoons onto sheets. Smoothen tops and bake at 200 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours.

I'm in a good mood... this week is going good! With a good paper, some french toast and now Pies. It's simply Wow! But it's good isn't it? With Christmas coming, we are just going to have a whole month simply dedicated on food... and pies and cakes are so much 'christmasy'! So, here's a quick pie recipe to enjoy... which I call Holiday Pie, while I go on an important misson... to find some travelling tips on the holidays 'coz I simply don't know to stay in or go out! Any suggestions anyone?

1 baked pie shell (this can be ready made)
3 cups strawberry ice cream, slightly softened
3 cups chocolate ice cream, slightly softened
3 large egg whites
1 cup marshmallow creme
Chocolate or caramel sauce, raspberry or strawberry puree

  • Spread strawberry ice cream in bottom of baked pie shell. Freeze 1 hour.
  • Then spread chocolate ice cream on top of strawberry ice cream and again freeze 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile heat oven to 425°F. Beat egg whites in small mixer bowl at high speed, until stiff peaks form for around 2 to 3 minutes
  • Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in marshmallow creme until smooth. Spread carefully onto frozen pie, sealing to edges of crust.
  • Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Freeze at least 6 hours or until firm. Serve with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce or raspberry puree.
This is really very simple and it takes time just to freeze this. You guys can really try this out with your favorite combos of ice cream too.

Hey you guys, just a quick post now -- I just finished off a paper and need some rest. Since the big holidays are around the corner, I think I'll be looking for more chocolate recipes (hey any excuse for chocolate!) So here's a fun quiz I did, before I head off to hunting down chocolate on cyber space.

Which Chocolate Bar are you?????



Bounty
Your quite sensitive, and can be quite quiet. But on the other hand, you can also be quite lively, and bouncy, but still have a bit of sensitivity lurking around :-D

Yawn, I'm tired! The weekend was too hectic and I have a tough paper on wednesday... so playing hookey from classes tomorrow. I'm planning an early night so that I can keep my grey cells working tomorrow. Just thought of keeping U guys updated on certain things, before I hit the sack! There was something cool that was going on yesterday... Pie In The Face Day! It's fun 'coz all U do is throw pies on anybody's face. A good way to take revenge on someone you don't like, Eh? Gives me ideas too!

Tuesday's also French Toast Day, and I have already told mom to make me some for breakfast. It will be a sweet morning for me and also get me going for the day. I gotta cram up, remember! So, while I get some shut-eye, here's my mom's recipe for Banana French Toast - She usually makes this the night before and refrigerates till baking time.

2 ripe medium bananas, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
12 slices French bread, untrimmed
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • In a bowl gently toss bananas with lemon juice. Arrange half the bread slices in the bottom of a greased square baking dish. Top the bread with a layer of bananas and remaining bread slices.
  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Pour slowly over bread to coat evenly. Cover and chill for 6 to 24 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Uncover the baking dish. Sprinkle sugar over the bread and bake for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F, then bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean and top of French toast is lightly browned. Let stand 10 minutes, and enjoy.

Hey, Hey, Hey... it's here! Thanksgiving is here! I'm busy and happy and I have decided not to write much today. Let's all take a breather from writing and enjoy with our friends, family and loved ones. And guys, do keep me posted on 'what happened and what was meant to
happen' on Thnaksgiving without fail.

Just a small reminder, that we have another reason to celebrate 'coz it's also What Do You Love About America Day! Let's not think too much about this o.k... 'coz we all know how much we love America. So, here's just a fun little quiz to jazz up the day!

Let me know what flavor of Ice cream You are, I am ...

Strawberry Ice Cream

A bit shy and sensitive, you are sweet to the core.
You often find yourself on the outside looking in.
Insightful and pensive, you really understand how the world works.

You are most compatible with chocolate chip ice cream.

What Flavor Ice Cream Are You?

1- 7 ounce jar of Marshmallow fluff or creme
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter

  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture boils.
  • Boil and stir for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Hello people, the weekend is almost through... And I'm happy I got some work done. I planned out my Thanksgiving party and invitations! It's almost knocking loud on the door. Lotsa things to be done more... the turkey, the decorations, the decor. I need help and
fast!!

There was something very interesting on saturday too... Teddy Bear Day. Hey, teddy bears are my all time favorite friends and for other people too. It's just not kids, there are lot of adults who are quite possesive about their teddy bears! I spent some of my time giving
them a brush-up and then made a special dinner for my mom and dad. Guess why... for Moms and Dads Day. My folks are very cool and they deserve the best of everything. I topped the dinner with moms favorite dill pickle, in celebration of International Pickle Festival. Ooo, it just added that zing to our dinner, but I have to admit that dad was not too pleased with our weird eating!!

So, that was me and my weekend. Got to hit my bed now, for I got an early class and a whole week! Signing off... Ciao!
