I cannot believe how quickly time has flew and half of the year is gone already!
Everything has been amazing so far and I am truly grateful to God for that! Even though at times I don't feel as attached to God due to many distraction, I indeed have grown a lot spiritually through His grace, especially in my love relationship.
I must say, I am proud that both my baby and I have been growing and learning a lot from each other. On my side, I'm thankful for having such a darling who is ever so patient, passionate and genuine. It is the little things he taught me that helps me to cope better in my daily life. For example? I have been very disheartened and doubtful on myself over my fitness routine. I am absolutely disappointed on the fact that my weight has been increasing drastically even though I have been cutting down on my calorie intake, eating clean and working out. And that's why I feel stressed out each time I think about going for workout and i basically just dread through the whole session. Baby then told me work out should be something that helps you to destress and you should enjoy the process. Otherwise there's no point doing it. And he actually helps me to gain back my confidence by constantly telling me how beautiful I am, how lovely my body is despite how much I deny them and he also jogs with me. What really touches me is that he is actually willing to accommodate with me in every way, listening to my rants without turning me off, and explaining and analizing every small details with me so that I can be less OCD and tensed.
And yes you guess, this special edition of dark chocolate orange cookie is developed for him who loves combo! While this bar of choco was bought from France during the last winter!
Ingredients ( yields 11 cookies)
40g dark choco (any of your choice)
20g unsalted butter
25g egg yolk (1 yolk)
50g granulated sugar
40g sifted all purpose flour
10g dark cocoa
1/4 tsp soda
1/8 tsp salt
- Melt the choco and butter
- Wait for the mixture to cool, then add yolk
- Whisk well to combine, then add in sugar and mix well
- Add in the rest of the dry ingredient, fold till combine
- Chill in the fridge for about 20mins while preheat your oven to 180c
*I also sprinkle some sea salt on the cookies just because it looks nice and I love the combo between dark choco and sea salt :) but this step is optional !
Bake for 12mins.
Let them cookies rest on the wire rack. They should be soft to touch when they come out from the oven but it will firm up more as it cools down.
Chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside!
They are rich, fudgy and decadent! They're not as sinful to be eaten since they're small in size, not overly sweet, low in fat yet flavorful! Definitely satisfy your taste buds with one or two with a cup of afternoon tea/coffee :)
