Time For January 2012 Recap

This is just a quickie post to recap everything that I posted or cooked in the month of January 2012. A good start of my New Year resolution, I’ve always wanted to have my own food blog but was always worried about the commitment. I know that it’s not an easy job to keep up with it. And since I don’t have a proper kitchen and equipment I am really worried that I wont be able to deliver what I wanted to. I love baking but for now I have to postpone it until some miracles happen with my job hunting. Finger crossing. But after being encourage by my family, friends and my loved one. I decided to just start it and see where it leads me. Since the day I started it, I have to admit that I struggle a bit with starting up, and recipes. Everything I want to make relates to baking! And I don’t have a freaking oven! So it pushed me to find recipes that don’t need it. And to my surprise, I can live without an oven. I can come up with food that I never thought of cooking. Steaming a cake? Who would have thought of it! Everyone who read my steaming cake post was like WHAT!!!! Steamed?? Are you sure? You mean steamed cake? How could that even be possible? So yes! Nothing is impossible. We just have to figure out another way to approach it. I can apply this to cooking. But real life? It’s a bit tougher than I expected. Still in the learning phase. Well, everyday it’s a learning day!
