My Pregnant Pecan, Macadamia And Pine Nuts Cupcakes

NUTTY CUPCAKES....  Baking mode is ON this morning!  I have plans to do some baking today... Macadamia cookies and Pecan cupcakes, two at the same time but ended up doing cupcakes only.  Reason why?  I could not find the recipe given by my SIL in my handphone.  That is the consequences of not saving it up and also not disclosing it in my blog post.  Ahhhhh.... Now ... somebody must be thinking... "Serves you right for not sharing with us!"  LOL.... 

So I ended up making a double portion of cupcakes instead, this time I tweaked the recipe to my own liking, my cupcakes are filled with blended pine nuts, pine nuts, pecans and macadamia nuts.  They are called Nutty Cupcakes cos they got "pregnant" and kept growing and growing from their "belly" when they were in the oven.  LOL.... 

Ok, first things first.... my Nutty Cupcakes recipe.... servings for 14-16.
One whole SCS butter
130gm sugar
Cream them up... 
Add in 4 eggs, one at a time.... 
2, 3 and 4.... eggs.... 
Then I add in 200 gm of self raising flour
40 gm of blended pine nuts...
40 gm of pine nuts whole... 
Pecans and Macadamia nuts as toppings... 
And into the oven they went..... 
I baked them at 160 degrees for 20 minutes...
Some just grow bigger and bigger in the midst of baking till they nearly overflow... 
That is why I called them "pregnant" cupcakes... 
I wonder why their shapes are so uneven this time....
Maybe because of the size of their "clothing?"
Or perhaps I did not shake them properly before they went into the oven.... 
This is definitely "overgrown!"
While this size is just right.... 
Anyway, all could be eaten cos they are soft and buttery.... 
A reminder though... 
The size of the paper cupcakes must be the same!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
