It is a first day of 2016 and I have so many wishes for all of you.

There are some below….

New Year is not about changing the dates but direction; it’s not about changing the calendar but commitment; it’s not about changing the actions but attitude. May each and every day of yours is renewed with lots of happiness and love.

May this new year brings all the crazy colors and fun in your life. I wish all the negativity and difficulties also end with this year and 2016 bring success and desired results for you.
Leave behind the demons of the past and look forward to a brand new start in 2016.
I want to start 2016 with a lots of chocolate….
If I say “Chocolate Pie in Heaven” we can agree it is the best start for 2016.

Hot Chocolate
Hot Chocolate

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

The recipe is named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is meringue-based dessert

that resembles a cloud topped with whipped cream and fruit.

is going to work for you people.

Tips and Techniques

1.Make sure everything that touches your egg whites is clean and dry.

Wipe your mixing bowl and whisk attachment with vinegar.

2. Whipping the egg whites – starting slowly and then increasing the speed while beating your whites will maximize the volume.

3. Adding the sugar – add 1 tablespoon at a time (very important)

Now you are ready….

Hello world!

Hello,

Welcome to my blog “5 Star Cookies”.

The main idea of this blog came from this:

“YOUR DREAMS ARE A BIG DEAL. GO FOR THEM.”

So, lets talk about my dreams….

I want this blog to become “Blog Hawaii” place where you land to rest, dream and succeed.

It can be baking, cooking, writing, photography…

It can be anything that makes you smile …(just reminder – serial killers are not invited)

So lets start our dream…

ABBA

I HAVE A DREAM

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy-tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy-tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream
I’ll cross the stream – I have a dream

To end this post I want to refer to 2015 Golden Globes Gina Rodriguez‘s acceptance speech.

“Thank you to my mom and my dad who taught me to dream big and to never stop dreaming.

My father used to tell me to say every morning, ‘Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.

Well, Dad — Today is a great day. I can and I did.”

Sending you love from this imaginary piece of Internet land…
