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.

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

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…

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
