... at what I recently got in the mail!

Printed copies of my book!  I ordered a few to send to my family. One copy is for my aunties, to whom I dedicated the book. Only 2 out of the 5 sisters are remaining and my aunt, the baker, is already 89 years old. I am excited for her to know how she has passed on the love of baking to me.  

I wish I could have more copies printed out but the cost is just too much.  Even with the least expensive option - softcover and standard paper, it is still very pricey.  The book quality is alright but I find the photos, including the cover, rather dark.  (It is not really as bright as it appears in the photo above.)  Overall though, I am still very happy to see my hard work published and bound :).

Last Saturday, it was my youngest son's Confirmation.  I chose to make him an old-fashioned chocolate cake.  I had the book open while I was making it, just to make sure I was doing everything according to instructions!

I reckon I did a fairly accurate job!

Many people are asking me for the recipe of this particular cake.  Unfortunately, I cannot share it here as I had already indicated before that it will only be shared in the book.  Only fair to those who have already purchased it, right?

If anyone wishes to get the printed book instead of the eBook, the BLURB BOOKSTORE is offering a 20% discount till the end of September. Just enter the code SEPTEMBER20PERCENT at the checkout.  Otherwise, you can get the eBook from here, if you haven't done so already. 

Enjoy the rest of the week!


  1. I am so happy and proud of you. It must be your dream to have a book someday and you accomplished it. Blessings to you and your family. BTW, I have been using your trick to place the dough in a warmed oven for it to rise and since then, my bread baking has been a success. I tried using the trick for my cinnamon rolls which I baked last week and and it was a success. Thank you. I will publish the cinnamon rolls tomorrow. Just in case you want to check it. I also bake the bread rolls and it was really good. My son almost ate all of it had I not stopped him. I will post that one too within this week. I place credits on you there. Thanks!

  2. Bought the ebook and its worth every cents. Hope there will be part 2 for all the other wonderful recipes you have prepared.

    Thank you,

  3. Is it possible to buy a signed copy? This is something I will give to my daughter.

    1. Unfortunately,I only sell the eBook. If you want the printed book, you would have to order directly from Blurb.
