Let's Bake: Gluten-free Godiva Dark Chocolate Cookies !

I baked this gluten-free cookie/scone couple weeks ago and here is the original post with recipe (link) . My first attempt is to make scones but as far as the baking goes,  if I add a bit more coconut oil, blend/knead the dough couple more times than making dough for scones and bake them longer than the required time in original recipe, I can have a yummy cookies as a result.  

Since the outcome of these cookies isn't chewy nor as hard as butter cookies, they tend to be too crumble to hold the shape. However, you can always toast/bake them to give them extra crunchiness as well as let the coconut oil to melt and help holding the shape better before you enjoy them

My little daughter is really fond of those cookies. They are gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free with extra nutrition from fax seed I added in. 

  • 1 1/2 tbsp flaxseed + 4 tbsp water (soak and set aside) 
  • 1 1/2 cups GF all purpose flour blend
  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/4 cup almond, coconut, rice, or soy milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 full cup coconut oil in solid form 
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar (low glycemic index score)
  • 5 pieces Godiva dark chocolate gem (I use whatever is available at the moment but you always can sub. with other kind chocolate or chocolate chips.) 
Bake them @ 375°F for 18 mins and let them cool down before you remove them from the bake sheet. 


As I said those cookie dough isn't as sticky as traditional cookie dough, you really have to be gentle when using cookie cutter and place them on the baking sheet. 

Kids love the star shaped cookies, or maybe they just think it is too cruel to eat bears, ginger-man or angels shaped cookies. lol

Even I can enjoy chocolate chip cookies without any guilt. 

Let's bake for summer.

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.

Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.

So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
