This just need to be posted

The Cuppa

Which one is your cuppa?

Peanut Butter Cookies

I got cookie fever.. Everywhere i go, i just wanted to get some cookie.. Everytime G asked me to bake, all i wanted is to bake more cookie..
Btw, we only got 1 jar of cookie, so i decided not to make another batch if we havent finish the cookie in the jar.. But then we ended up just eating it faster to get more cookie.. Or maybe at least thats what i did.. =)

This time around, i wanted to make some peanut butter cookies..
Dont know where it comes from, i dont even like peanut butter that much..
But i just got it in my head already that i wanted to make this cookie.. and cinnamon one, but thats later on.. not this post..
So.. here we are..
Recipe from here but i feel like a smart ass that day, so i change things around.. Just making it has less sugar and more peanut butter instead... and cruncy peanut butter instead of smooth one for more hearty feeling for me..
and below is what i did..
it turns out awesome.. i always prefer my cookie to be a bit soft instead of dry, but if u want to get that 'snap' feeling you can leave it a bit longer in the oven and turns the oven up to 375F instead.


    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    2/3 cup peanut butter - crunchy
    1 egg
    1 1/4 cup flour
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt


1 Beat the butter until creamy, 2 minutes. Add the sugars, beat for 2 more minutes. Mix in the peanut butter and egg. Mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture.

2 Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

3 Preheat oven to 375°F. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork. Bake until light brown, 9 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a minute; transfer to rack to cool completely.

Use forks to make the lining shape

First trial batch
Leftover dough, made in heart shape =)

Camberwell Market

This is the second time i went to the market and actually open a stall instead of buying food and hording around.
This time around i went with a friend from work and her friend. Since she told me that they together will have a lot of stuff, so we decided to open up 2 stalls and share it between the 3 of us. It was not the sunniest day you could ask for, but thank God it was not raining that morning. =)

At the end of the day, with all the expenses and stuff me and G made about $200 and my friends together made around $300. Not bad compare to not doing around at home, rite?

FYI, the website that the market management had was not so reliable. On the first time i open my stall few months back, another girl came after me carrying a paper with the same stall number as mine. If i had come half an hour later, ill be the one who need to go home instead. Poor girl.. i saw her car and it was full of stuff all packed at the back of it already..
I was reading reviews online about the market management website, and apparently a lot of people said that it used to be worst. Casual stall holder could not make booking until the next 6months or so.. Sounds scary to me.. So i hold my gun and decided not to complain about the current web anymore..
I guess nobody's perfect?

So here's the link to the management website if anyone ever need it. You need to register at first to login and dont forget to print out your confirmation paper if u decided to open a stall over there.
