I was inspired today to start baking my favorite cookies again so I can sell them and use the funds for our @hivecebubloggers events since we have different kinds of expenses and I am a person who likes to write down even the smallest expenses. I started doing this as a habit when I started investing my money in the stock market a few years back. My sister would always hear me say, "Write it down... write it down!" The thing is, if you don't make a habit of making a list of your daily expenses, you won't really know where your money goes.

Going back to the main story, today, I finally put my laptop away after spending so much time on it. my baby helped me prepare the cookies. I was very careful that we wouldn't get a lot of butter on his hands since he is very sensitive to dairy. But I read somewhere online that a few of my parent friends said to slowly introduce him to dairy. So, I am, but this time I had the medicine ready in the fridge in case I got clumsy!

It was our mama-and-baby-time, and we were both having fun preparing the cookies. "Let's make cookie together, mama!" he was enthusiastic!

We finished preparing the cookie dough, and it was a success! I had to put it in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes before I baked, so it's easier to roll the dough into a ball while the oven is also pre-heating.

I made the cookies bigger in size because I thought it would be easier to bake them and sell them per piece. Although there's totally no profit from it, it would just be nice to share this favorite cookie recipe of mine (which is a secret recipe).

So it was time to bake the cookies, and it only took 11 minutes, because I like my cookies crunchy on the outside but a little chewy on the inside. When I took out the cookies, I heard my baby screaming for my name because he wanted to play a racing game, and I panicked because I was holding a very hot tray, so I accidentally dropped it on the floor before I could put it on the counter!

It's a good thing my baby got distracted by his dad and stayed in his playroom. It's sad to see my cookies on the floor and I definitely cannot sell them now but at least my baby is safe. But I did cried though because I wanted them to be done today, so bad! 😭

I thought to myself, "I can't be baking every day." As we all know, it can be time-consuming to bake a big batch. I decided to stop what I was doing because my knees really started shaking. I don't know why. I really want these cookies to be done before next week. I just need to make time for it! Fingers crossed!

These cookies above are smaller in size because the ones I baked yesterday was 80g for each cookie. Should I make the monster cookie size or like a smaller size?

Gil

Cookies for Christmas 😋 with cup of hot chocolate surely suits the best. And the cookies looks appetizing too ☺️ surely is good. Looks like I need to start practicing cookies making again 😅

Ohhh we’re the same. We also like it a little bit crunchy outside but chewy inside and maybe melted chocolate. Heaven.😍

It could've been worse, at least it was cookies and not a big batch of curry or soup. I haven't seen chocolate chip cookies in ages, I could almost smell them as I read this post. I can't wait to see how the Christmas party goes, and as I write this my wife and kids have already landed back in Cambodia safe and sound.

I still dream of an ASEAN Hive Summit one day, but we'd have to sell a whole bunch of cookies to cover that scale of expenses 😁.

I love curry but... omg I can just imagine dropping a big pan of it on the flour! That guy on the gif though! lol

Well, I hope it all turns out good, would have been better if we have a real Santa haha

Oh nice! How long are you guys gonna be there? Wish you all the fun all throughout this trip!

Hopefully someday you could organize an ASEAN summit, It would be nice! True, every little expenses counts, but hope a lot will support these kind of initiatives. Am not ready for a bigger event. I would need an industrial oven then, haha!
