Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chip

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone.

–  Robin Williams 

 

Always surround yourself with things you love to do, life is way to short to be wasted and we should enjoy every second as if it were our last. Whenever I’m in the kitchen cooking or baking for people I get an overwhelming thrill in what Im doing. Hours can pass and it will feel only like seconds. There are many times where I have failed or things don’t go right,  but what I’ve learnt is that they are only ingredients just pick yourself up again and go for it again. 

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.

 
Lately I have been wanting to try new recipes out there that our not like the traditional things people always bake. I want to start finding my unique product that defines me. In a way trying to find something i can create that represents me as a person and showcase my potential.
