Of brownie, macaron & aglio olio

Recently, i have this very high spirit of cooking and baking (non-stop!). I keep on asking Nono what he wanted to eat every 2 minutes and as always he gave me this look while saying, 'Anything will do'. Urghhh, i hate his respond to my willingness to cook for him. I had this idea that i'll be leaving him in a month time to be working in KL city, so i have to push myself over the limit to always entertain him everyday without fail during this one month, in shaa Allah. This weekend, i haven't slept after subuh two days in a row because he always wanted me to accompany him to go breakfast like a king. & so, as a good wife, i followed him to where ever he wants to go :)

Since Nono didn't has craving for me to help fulfilled, i make my own menu for him. Hence the title of this post.
