It's a Brownie, it's a Muffin

I have baked these brownie muffins at least 4 times (within 4 months). Simply love the texture and smell of these muffins. Chocolate lovers will like this! Thanks to Happy Home Baker for this wonderful recipe!

It is a new beginning!

Ho ho.. yes this is my first bake after many many years.. I feel so happy to bake again :)  when I was juggling a full-time job as well as being a mother, I would spend every weekend relaxing :p well it was my excuse for being lazy :D

4 months ago, when I was being notified that my position has been made redundant, I have been thinking about my next step. At my age (mid-life crisis >_<"), I finally had the chance to re-think about what have I been doing (or what I have been wanting to do but did not have the chance to), and what I want to do next. I guess many will not understand how it feels like to be made "redundant" unless you have been through one yourself? I am grateful that my family and friends at work were supportive during that time.
