I believe this is only my second time working with lamb so I'm proud to say that I didn't ruin it! I don't always work with expensive cuts of meat or fish because 1) I don't justify splurging on myself and 2) I feel spoiled "experimenting" with these cuts, especially fish when they are so easy to ruin/over cook.
That being said, when I'm visiting my sister in Toronto, I feel totally justified in spending 30 bucks on a roast that will feed 4-5 people. The other thing is, being a TSR has the advantage of knowing all the deals in every single grocery store so sometimes I can buy ribs at $2/lb or prime rib at $4/lb.

Saturday I spent the entire day baking these babies. To be honest, I haven't blogged in so long that I didn't know if I had it in me anymore...what if I don't remember how to bake anymore? or what if the last time I succeeded was just a stream of good luck.

After seeing the Pillsbury ready-to-bake cookies, I was determined to create my own. It's no easy task but after multiple attempts, I've finally got it! Due to the amount of work attached to producing these cookies, they will be a limited edition. If you got a cookie, then I must like you a lot.
First attempt was an embarrassment...Instead of a bunny image, the ears were squashed and they looked like little piglets instead. I had no choice but to eat them all by myself...life's tough!

These bright colours probably scared my housemates because they looked at me with great uncertainty before reaching for one. |And I must admit, I wouldn't eat them either on a regular basis. But hey, it's Easter and you gotta have those colours!

I never liked eggs as a kid so I've always avoided tea eggs until recently. Since I've learnt to appreciate eggs as one of the most versatile ingredients, I am now attempting to include it more often in my diet.

I'm not sure if you are familiar with "OMG's Chocolate clusters" that popped on the shelves of most Canadian grocery stores a while ago. I believe it was on Dragon's Den and damn... they are expensive. For a little pkg containing 135g, they charge a ridiculous amount of $5.29. I can probably make a half kilo of them for that much. Plus, it's more fun if you are making it yourself anyway right?

So I haven't been able to bake all that much; instead of brainstorming new ideas, I found myself going back to the same recipes over and over for special occasions and gifts. The extra time I had I spent job hunting. I'd say it paid off. I will be starting a job with Pepsi next week as a Territory Sales Rep.

My technique is getting closer and closer to perfection! My friend wanted to order 4 dozens so he can give them out as Christmas gifts, and that is a perfectly good reason for me to get into the kitchen again. I've been at a constant battle with my parents regarding this baking thing. Long story short, my mom doesn't want me baking at all and never wants to hear the word "cake" around the house. Putting my negotiation skills to work, I've gotten it to baking once a week, and a full day's worth. At least with a good 10 hours, I can create something cool.
