I was so happy that I finally got to make my own churros. This has been a favorite of Naddydaddy and mine and we never fail to order these however full we were back then when we were still dating in Manila. Dulcinea makes one of the best in Manila. Well, I really can't say if the taste is as good the ones they make in Spain because I've never been there but I do know that Dulcinea's is really good. If I remember correctly, they're served plain and dunked in a really rich chocolate sauce that you can drink guiltily after you've finished the churros. And guess what? I made them today! Naddydaddy said he demands to have a weekly breakfast of churros con chocolate. I must say that I am pleased with the compliment. I got the recipe from Food Network and I encourage you to try this one out. It's easy peasy!

I've never liked oatmeal cookies but when I started baking, about less than a year ago, I figured I "needed" to make one as a "rite of passage". Don't ask me why because I don't even know why I ever thought of that. And besides, when I started baking my own sweets, I realized how much butter and sugar go into those yummy cookies, cakes and whathaveyous. So I told myself, oats would compensate for it. Don't ask if it's true because I'm sure it was just my other self rationalizing. So I tried it and I promise you, this has got to be one of the best cookies I've ever baked and one that I can make again and again without having to try any other variety. It's crispy and crumbly but still soft and chewy. It's sweet and salty, kinda like eating popcorn. So here it is, presenting the recipe the way I tackled it.
