Let's Start Drooling!

Hi all, do you love eating?
Me? Of course I do. No doubt, haha.

But then, if I change the question to "do you love cooking?", is the answer still the same? ehehe.
Me? Not really. Even when I'm doing so, I would rather say that I am experimenting, not cooking. Why? First, I'm not a pro, indeed; second, it's simply because whenever I try to make some food, it ends up like trial and error, sometimes it pan out, sometimes not.

But, like Michael Hunter said, "Learning does not happen from failure itself, but rather from analyzing the failure, making a change, and then trying again". So never give up, even a pro chefs have to try a same recipe a thousand times to get the best combination and flavor.

Eventhough I am not a chef and not good at cooking, I do looove visiting cooking blogs and seeing all delicious food pictures on it. And actually, what I want to share to you all here is some cooking sites that I visit most. You should visit too, and start drooling like me, hahaha.

What I love the most from this sites, besides the delicious food photos, is the step-by-step-process photos of the recipe cooked by the owner of this site. For me, photos can explain more than just text, no?

More delicious food photos attack! hahaha. This site is also nice, it does not post every-step photos, but ingredients photo in the beginning of every post is clear enough to explain the readers who wanna try the recipes.

What else could you expect? Full of high-resolution-food-photos, this site can make me drooling :9 Maybe photos can motivate you to start cooking something, who knows?

And still many sites to be written here, I also visit this, this, this, and soooo on. I love cooking visiting cooking sites!

Have you start drooling, anyway? :p

My Very Own Cupcake

Hola! Today, my Saturday morning was filled up with productivity. I woke up early and went to campus for joining seminar and workshop about culinary business, more specifically, cupcakes! It was not only an ordinary talk show, but also... practice. Yes, each participant was given one cup cake to be decorated and 100 gr basic fondant. Tons of fun!
Surprisingly, everyone made a very very cute decoration for her/his own cup cake. Wanna see some of them? Just scroll down :)
