Grape Tarts and Ginger Cookies

August 10, 2008

Baking at home is fun. You get to experience doing everything on your own and this is where you learn. Before I entered culinary school, I was quite afraid to bake because whenever I attempt to do something, the thing ruins either in the midst or at the end result. But for now, I guess no matter what the outcome is, I just want to continue doing it till I achieve it. Patience is the key to success and never ever give up!

This week, I made ginger cookies and fruit tart. I was keen in making egg tart actually but I ended up with grape tarts coz I saw some leftover grapes in the fridge. And seriously, the ginger cookies are made from a ginger cake recipe but I don’t know why it’s crispy and it’s more like a cookie. So, I might as well call them cookies. Haha.

    Pastas are few of my favorites food. Eaten with a sauce or stir fried, these dishes can satify any hungry person of all ages. Happy cooking and washing up!!
