Additional Information:

J asked, "Do you still love me?" I have been kept busy with C, who is 3.5 years old. I could feel that J somehow feels a bit neglected. With a blink of an eye, J is 10 years old now, and more independent now. It's nice that he still treasures and looks forward to spending time together with mommy. I really cherish it to my heart. The day will come, when he may not want to spend time with me anymore. This afternoon, we have our one-to-one date, and he would like to bake Danish pepper nut cookies. I hope to have more one-to-one time with him, not just today.

This is a healthier version substituting white flour with white wheat flour and almonds, and butter with olive oil. In general, for every 250 g, 1/2 tsp of spices each is used. And spices are known to have health benefits too. We made this today.

This is the version for my kids. If I am making for Daddy FECS, I will then add 60 ml of honey, as he has a sweet tooth.

Chinese Translation:

老大问:“妈妈,你还爱我吗?你只有时间和妹妹在一起。“ 感觉到他是忽有点被受冷落的感觉。转眼间,老大已经10岁了,比较独立了。但我也比较忙了。难得他还珍惜能有多一点和妈妈在一起的时间。我必须珍惜这个时光。今天下午,我们有一个one-to-one date,只有我们俩。他建议我和他一起在家烤丹麦圣诞节饼干。之后他就很开心了。:-) 我得尽量经常和他有one-to-one date :-)
