Alvina the Medical Examiner Investigator!

Congratulations to Alvina Chow, the newest Medical Examiner for the county of San Diego! I am SOOOO proud of her for landing this career and am so excited she found some thing that truly makes her happy. I know she can do whatever she puts her mind to it, and she just proved me right, again! So watch out people of SD and more, Alvina's gonna make sure nothing gets by her and help solve crimes and innocent people safe! woohoo! So to celebrate, instead of making her usual red velvet with chocolate chips in it, I decided to mix it up and made chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate chips! =) The taped body, footprints, "Do Not Cross" tape, and blood splatter evidence are made of fondant and the blood splatter itself is made from red food coloring! Shout outs to my wonderful assistant, my sister Jennifer for painting the awesome wording for the yellow "Do Not Cross" tapes!

So Alvina, to prepare you for your new job, this "stories" is something you might wanna read. =) A police detective was investigating a homicide. As he questioned the on-scene officer, he learned the body was that of a young woman. The body was found with a bowl over her head and a spoon stuck in her back.The on-scene officer asked what the detective thought had happened to the woman.The detective responded, "I think it's obvious. A cereal killer got her!" Hehe. Ok, once again, CONGRATULATION Alvina!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies!

At work this year we had a cookie exchange party, so I decided to make one of my favorite type of cookies from scratch for the 1st time ever! So here's how my experience went. With my first batch, right away I knew it wasn't that great because instead of smelling like cookies out of the oven, it smelled like flour. Also, when my hubby Khoa tasted them, his expression wasn't so enthusiastic, so I knew I had to try again. Second time around, I sough help and advice from Chi Hai, and boy was she a great help! This time around, I used her recipe for her chocolate chip and swapped it out for white chocolate chip and macadamia nuts instead. I chilled the drop dough before baking them this time too, and man, what a big difference!! My trusty cookie tasters (Khoa and Jennifer) confirmed this =P. Chi Hai also showed me some Martha Stewart cookie package designs, so I made the packages myself as well. It's always fun to turn little projects like a cookie exchange into a crafty one! These were so much fun to make, I learn a lot for my first cookie experience, and I'm so glad it turned out to be a success! Yay! Props to my sis Jennifer for properly showing me how the cookies should be spaced out (spared me from making 1 giant but still yummy cookie) and for Khoa's transparent expressions =P.

Alright, so those who read my blogs know what time it is! Time for some more awesome corny but wittily awesome jokes! =P Why did the cookie go to the doctors? Because it felt crummy! Why did the cookie cry? Because his mother was a wafer so long! How is a cookie like a computer? They both have chips! What kind of cookie makes you rich? A fortune cookie! hehe. So for any cookie personality, these will surely put a smile on your face! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Eric!

Happy Birthday Eric! These are Red Velvet Cupcakes with buttercream frosting! Eric's son is in his high school football team and Eric cannot be more proud! So we thought it would be perfect to make his birthday cupcakes to be football theme to represent this! All the decorations are made out of fondant except for the grass, that's buttercream of course! I think next time though, I'll probably make the decor out of flavoured tootsie rolls since those taste yummier! Hey so what did the football say to the punter? "I get a kick out of you!" hehe.

Also, happy first day of Hanukkah!
