Every weekend I make an effort to work some “magic” in the kitchen.  Most of the day I cook… sometimes, I added some baking with the kids.  It was fun and I know my children will remember and cherish all the fun times we had have in the kitchen. 🙂  So a couple of many weekends ago we made mini apple pies.  (Many weeks because I have been into reading and over-thinking so the cooking took a “side step”.)

We used the cupcake pan to make the mini apple pies.  My two kids Luisa and Lily was in-charged of rolling the pie crust and putting the filling.   By the way I used  1 (21 ounce) can Comstock Apple Pie Filling for quick, easy and less mess in the kitchen. 🙂

I can tell that my two girls had fun.  So next time when they tell story of interest they will surely mention our baking session.

When looking for inspiration on how I shoot our apple pie, I saw a picture with milk and green apples beside it.  I love the idea of the glass of milk with ribbon around so…


Pretty!  Don’t you think so? 😀

So I mentioned that I have been into reading lately … I want to share a quote that I found deeply resonate what I’m feeling for JoyBites.

The desire to do something because you find it deeply satisfying and personally challenging inspires the highest levels of creativity, whether it’s in the arts, sciences, or business.

I cook, I take nice photos, I blog and share recipes for everyone because I find it deeply satisfying and personally challenging and invigorating.   Doing all these first thing in the morning gives me energy and enthusiasm to be whatever I want to be.

How about you what area in your life you find satisfying and personally challenging?
