Holiday Wishes

Chocolate & Truffles
Cookies & Cake
Holiday Items
jin likes to make

May you never run out
of food you enjoy
For its memory is greater
than a cheap plastic toy

Hold those you love
spread peace & cheer
Here's wishing all
A wonderful New Year


I owe you all many posts, stories, photos & one Punk Bar video from Vegas. I do hope I shall finally be able to take the time to do that soon. I appreciate all the comments & emails & I apologize for my lack of response. It has been a very difficult year for this jin & I can't wait for it to be over! A new beginning... a fresh start. I shan't discuss my problems here for I prefer this to be a happy place. Although I will tell you what has been consuming me for some time recently... after 5.5 years of marriage mr. jin & I have parted ways. Neither one of us are argumentative type people & it was a mutual decision; we shall remain friends. I believe sometimes people grow in different directions. Tis simply what happened to us. Now, if anyone out there is interested in dating a jin just drop me a line & I'll send you the 22 page application form.



Seriously, the application form for securing a date with moi is only 15 pages long! What do you take me for?!

*As some smartass in the crowd shouts out*
"An anal-retentive Perfectionist Pastry Chef!"

jin replies: "Yeah? So what's your point?!"

Out to Lunch...
and Dinner... and Breakfast... and Lunch...

I'll be gone for a few days...
I've been given a fabulous gift!
I'm going here...
with her.
We are staying here.
I am going to eat chocolate here.
You might not think a jin would go here...
but never underestimate a jin. ;-)

Know what she asked for in payment?
(No, not that you perverts!)
She asked for some of these:

Dipped in Chocolate.

I've just wrapped them up to pop in my suitcase in the AM.

I made them a little bigger than normal.

A LOT bigger than normal.

I'll be thinking of all of you
whilst I am
Eating Chocolate
Savouring Desserts
Ahhhh, hell...
who am I kidding?

I won't be thinking of all of you.
I'll be too busy:

There's a Blogfan/Munkee at My Door!!!

Welcome to my Second Edition of
"There's a Blogfan at My Door"
A series where
my blogfans
get to read about moi meeting
in person
my blogfans!!!

One of my very favourite blogfans, Ace (aka Eric), recently emailed to say he'd be in the area. I said Yay!!! Stop by and I'll make you a meal. Methinks he somehow knows that jins are overworked & under appreciated as he offered to take me *out* to dinner! Yay! Yay! Yay! Unfortunately I didn't take my digicam with so no piccies of that. But trust me when I say we had great food & fabulous conversation! He even recalled an old post of mine and said, "Is this the Billboard place?" I couldn't believe he remembered! It was indeed!

I wanted to send him back with a package of goodies for sharing with his beautiful & talented fiancee Marisa. He said one of her faves is lemon & I just happened to have some of my lemon curd filled Citrus Swirl cookies. As I was packing them up I heard something odd in the background. I turned just in time to see Ace trying to sneak off with an entire pan of raspberry ganache filled butter cookies.
All he had to say for himself was,
"Munkees like berries."

Here you have us posing with big cheesy grins simply for your viewing pleasure.

Eric wrote a movie!
Go here or here and buy a copy!

Blogger Love Volume IV
The Jewellery Goddess

First off,
I had to get into full Gypsy Witch garb
to fathom the
Essence of Julie
(aka Jewels)
She creates gorgeous pieces
like this:

Here's my jinterpretation
of Julie:

She is curvy vanilla delicious!

She is covered in Dark Chocolate!
(Kinky! ;-)

She's sparkly!

I think...
I really do think...
is a beaded Necklace!

You can purchase her Fabulous hand-crafted creations
via the web
at Le Beadoir.
Go. Click. Indulge.
I'll be here when you get back.

Blogger Love Volume III
Coaster Punchman & Poor George

Coaster Punchman's World was the very first blog I ever commented at. That was a huge deal for me! I was new to blogging & not quite sure of the *rules*. His posts were sweet, funny, chock full of sarcastic wit & loaded with foodporn. I just knew we'd get along! Here we are, a year & a half later. CP & PG have both tasted my pastry creations with a couple SWEETBOX shipments & they deserve to be immortalized in cookie dough!

Well, let's get on with it, shall we?
(Do click to enlarge the photos!)

I see the two of you as a

what in the world is that?!!?
I know it's
an Old-Fashioned
Scratch made
Vanilla Cut-out cookie...

I'll give you another shot.
Now can you tell?

Here's some of the detail.
I think CP & PG are very detailed...
Very Particular
(in a good way ;-)

I see them as being well rounded
(the curly-ques)
And quite precious
(the Gold accents)

I see them being married someday.

Hence the Wedding Cake shape (for luck).

It's a damn good thing your initials work out this way!

Now I have a dual explanation for the Peace sign accent cookie.
(This is brilliant! Just wait'll you hear it!)

It is a "Baby Peace Sign".
So, hopefully,
it will satisfy
the MG
stopping her
from picking on
the CP
& the PG

The *Heart* is for Love...
May the mormon's finally leave you both in *Peace*
to get on with it
because from what I hear,
"Everyone should have a Poor George."

(That's a CP quote!)

If I deliver the cookie personally can I move in?

The Answer Revealed

Well, well, well.....
Most of you guessed it!

I tried to trick you.

The Photo I showed you was not right side up.

Let me turn it around.

That's still the wrong way!

Third time's a charm.

That's better!

This was a HUGE cake!
Funny how some of you thought it was small scale.
(Tricky photo angle! ;-)
The gold board was a whopping
1.5 Feet x 2.5 Feet!
The cake was 2 layers high.
Red Velvet Cake w/ Raspberry Filling.
French Vanilla Buttercream Frosting & Deco.

Vanilla Buttercream Olive anyone?
