Time to Chill

Sorry to not have posted in a while. Work has started to pick back up again, so I have been doing various things over the past weeks. πŸ˜… My first week back to work just happened to coincide with also the hottest week in the UK. β˜€οΈπŸ”₯πŸ”₯ (Literally right now can’t survive without a constant supply of ice cream haha!🍦🍦) Not sure if it was the weather or the lack of moving around in the past months, but the walk to work had been strangely exhausting. 😢 Having said that though, it was nice to be back in a familiar setting in some form and enjoying a change of scenery for the first time in months! 😁

The heatwave has obviously made more people going out to parks and beaches to enjoy the sunshine. Perhaps I am just a bit more wary, so meanwhile I am still trying to avoid crowded places and keep to social distancing. Doesn’t necessary help though that my apartment can get very steamed up during midday from the heat (even with all the windows wide open!) πŸ₯΅πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ So I took some time to make sure that there is something cool and chilled to enjoy at home. πŸ˜‰

This Oreo and strawberry chilled, no-bake cheesecake is very easy to make. It is done by simply whipping up cream cheese and double cream using an electric whisk. Cookies and cream. πŸͺ Strawberry and cream. πŸ“ You have them all in one package! ❀️

Happy Easter Sunday! πŸ°πŸ£πŸ’•

Just a very quick Happy Easter from me! This Easter Sunday may be very different from those in the years before, but I hope everyone is still enjoying a restful Sunday at home! ❀️ (I certainly have been lazing around at home watching movies after movies lol! πŸ˜‚)

Thought I will use this opportunity to share the Easter egg cookies I made last year. These cookies were made with Mars Bars and seasoned with salt to give a salted caramel-like feel to them. πŸ˜‹ They were then decorated with coloured icing and Smarties – a chocolate feast indeed haha! 🍫🍫🍫

Are you too enjoying many chocolates and sweets right now? πŸ˜‰

My Cookie Monster

Who can ever forget cookiesπŸͺ and milkπŸ₯› from the days of your childhood? I used to have so much fun dunking the cookies in the milk (to me that’s the best bit!) It’s funny to think how the smallest thing in the world can make you smile when you were a child, but these excitement and joy seemingly become more rare as one grows older and older.

As a kid, I was able to enjoy every little moments of my life, but nowadays I would just always be constantly thinking and worrying of things I need to do the day after. I missed the days when I used to be able to go home and watch my favourite shows, and escape from the reality. One of my favourite shows to watch back then was Sesame Street and the Cookie Monster often appeared on my screen (Though my favourite was actually Oscar ’cause I loved the fact that he lives in a bin! πŸ˜‚) Don’t you just wished you can go back to being a kid again?

Turning back time may not be possible, but a dream of cookie and milk is not far from reality. These jam-filled chocolate chips cookies are very simple to make but just as nostalgic as those of your favourites from your childhood. What’s your favourite kind of cookies? Come and try this, and embrace the Cookie Monster inside us all!

Jam-Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

Quantity: About 6 cookies


100g plain flour

50g unsalted butter

35g caster sugar

1-2 tbsp milk

Seedless Raspberry Jam

Dark Chocolate Chips


1. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the caster sugar.

2. Add the milk a bit at a time to bring the dough together. Cover and rest the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas 5.

4. Roll the dough evenly to a large square. Cut out circles using a cookie cutter. (Alternatively, split the dough into equal portions, then roll and shape.) Ensure you have cut out an even number of circles.

5. Place a teaspoon of jam on one circle of dough and cover with another circle. Repeat this procedure with the remaining dough. Add chocolate chips on top of the cookies.

6. Bake the cookies in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.

7. Cool the cookies on a wire rack to let them firm up before serving.
