I may have found the best ube cupcake recipe. I’ve been looking for one for so long. I found one awhile back but it was alright but it’s not as great as the one I made today lol.
So I went to my local Filipino market and bought ube (purple yam) extract (also bought mango extract to experiment with), I wanted to try out this recipe I was given by a fellow Instagram friend I follow (sosweetbites). I just love her work. She makes fantastic looking sweets, very inspirational.
Long story short I made the cupcakes and the whole family loved it. They were eating one right after the other even without the ube buttercream icing. I myself can’t stop eating them. I think I already ate 5-6 since around 5-6 pm (PST) and it’s now 10:47pm.
About a week late but I forgot to blog about what I’ve baked for Halloween. I decided to bake cupcakes and cookies for our customers at North American Motors. I baked too much and there were a lot left over. I should have just baked half of what I’ve made and now a lot of food (cupcakes) got wasted =( . All the cookies were eaten by all the kids and myself LOL. I baked 12 regular size and 24 mini cupcakes of each flavor. There were three, red velvet, chocolate-cinnamon and vanilla. I also made about 75+ sugar cookies and I think 75 candy covered Oreos
Well today was the last straw I can’t stand it. Hours ago I started looking around places that’s hiring. I’m desperately looking for job. I already applied at one of my favorite stores, Target LOL. Going to try at Sur la Table and probably Williams-Sonoma. I should also try Jo-Anns or Michaels. Best place for me to work LOL.. I also applied for a cabin cleaner at San Francisco International Airport. Just sent in my resume few minutes ago. Could be fun..
I wonder if any of my cousins can get me a job at SFO, both work there.
Need a job to save money also. Wanted to go back to school and plus my daughter hasn’t started preschool yet so I wanted her to start. Hubs.. I have a feeling that, that’s why she not starting yet because he doesn’t want to pay. She’s starting Kindergarten next year and she hasn’t attend preschool yet. SMH.. I know it’s optional but still.. It prepares her doe kindergarten.
Trying to find any job right now. Hubs keeps complaining about where money is going. And I can’t believe that he gets mad about it when I only spend it mostly at grocery stores. I hardly buy any personal stuff for myself. I haven’t bought any new clothes or shoes in years. Well for shoes I just bought some last week. When I do buy stuff for myself it’s just mostly bakeware items any it never goes beyond $5.00.
I’m tried of him complaining all the time. Money goes where it should go. And he’s been a cheap ass about it. I know I mostly spend about $100 or less a week on food. And he STILL complains that’s way too much.. Even the government will give you more. Trying to budget $100 a month is not EVEN close enough to feeding a family of 5. SMFH
I seriously can’t believe he complains so much when he’s the one spending more than anyone else in this house. Just today already about $80+ was spend on his shirt and jeans at Banana Republic. ALSO he just won an item on eBay for his bike. Guess how much $270.. TWO HUNDRED and SEVENTY. Shipping was another $14. When he gets a new bike he goes overboard and buys buys buys whatever he needs.
I’m just very upset.. He does this all the time. Why can’t he see I only spend money on what’s important. Maybe I should make him buy everything from now on. I’m just going to stop cooking, baking, etc.
Yesterday I went out with the kids.. Just got up and decided to go somewhere. First we went to Japantown in San Francisco because I wanted to check out Daiso and Ichiban. From both stores I bought cookie cutters. I thought these stores would be big from the sound of it on Yelp 😝.
But it’s alright they had different things (more things) compared to Daiso in Serramonte and Ichiban is Tanforan.
After Japantown I decided to head back home.. Was tired from carrying my 1 year old around and it was hot. While driving back home I saw Ross so I had to stop by and look.. Look around and found a cakepop / cupcake stand. I had to get it LOL.
After this place I was like okay now we have to go home.. I’m tired and it was hot 😝. While heading back.. I just had this feeling I had to go to the Dollar Tree in Pacific.
As we were looking around. I put my one year old down. Which then he ran to where the books was. Saw him picking up a book. Told him to put it back which he did but I decided to put it back in the right place.. I looked up and saw a book I always wanted to buy.. It was weird. I saw it at Barnes and Nobles a while back but than decided to hold off. That was almost over a year ago.
My oldest son has minor Autism so I’m trying to learn everything about it.
