Chocolate Poke Cake

Chocolate Poke Cake

This is the perfect cake to bring to potluck parties or when you are hosting a party at home and you have no time to make a fancy layer cake.  I’ve made this several times. I went through a few recipes, the first one I tried, the cake was just okay and the icing was […]

Spatchcocked Chicken

Spatchcocked Chicken

Roasting chicken this way shortens roasting time and gives you more crispy chicken skin to enjoy. I love chicken especially when it’s well-seasoned. Why was I so intimidated to try this before? It is surprisingly easy to do. Just make sure that you use a good kitchen knife. I’ll be doing roast chicken this way from […]

Carrot Cake Roll

Carrot Cake Roll

Mother’s Day is almost here so I decided to make this delicious, nutritious (it’s made of veggie ;P) cake roll. It’s been awhile since I made cake to celebrate an occasion. It’s either I’m out of energy or time. But over the weekend I was inspired to bake  a simple cake roll. I was planning […]

Shrimp in Pomodoro with Rosé

Shrimp in Pomodoro with Rosé

One of my favorite dishes–shrimp in sauteed tomatoes. The addition of Rosé is a definite level-up for this very simple dish. I would suggest this dish if you are planning a cozy dinner with your special someone. 🙂 You may try to keep the heads and tails of the shrimp intact for a nice presentation. […]

Cacio e Pepe

Cacio e Pepe

This is a very simple pasta dish, similar to aglio e olio and truffle oil pasta. I like to make this on days when I need to get dinner on the table quickly.  That’s usually when I’m already tired and super-hungry, no energy even for a drive-thru and no patience to wait for delivery. 😀 […]

Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes

Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes

It’s true time really flies so fast. I realized with a little pinch in my heart as I look at  my kids..they are no longer babies! In fact,  my youngest, my dear boy outgrew me already by an inch ( it was easy anyway because I’m on the short side hehe). I was glad and […]

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee

I can’t believe that I have not posted Creme Brulee here yet. This is one of  my favorite desserts. It’s right there on top with leche flan and tiramisu. It’s very similar to flan- it’s smooth and creamy but less firm and with a crunchy caramelized sugar on top instead of syrupy. YUM.  No inverting […]

Ricciarelli (Sienese Almond Cookies)

Ricciarelli (Sienese Almond Cookies)

I love these cookies. When I bite into it, it’s like I’m transported into the old world where people in  dresses and suits have their afternoon teas in beautiful gardens or patios, enjoying each other’s companies, having real conversations and with impeccable manners. It’s a by-gone world that I only imagine from the classic books […]

Spinach and Crab Dip

Spinach and Crab Dip

The timing of this recipe on my feed is perfect. I was planning on making crab omelette but when I saw Valerie Bertinelli’s video from FoodNetwork where she’s making this yummy dip, I wanted to make it too because not only it looked so appetizing to me, it seemed so easy to make and I […]

Chocolate Crazy Cake

Chocolate Crazy Cake

So you want to bake a cake and found out you’re out of eggs? No worries, this recipe doesn’t require  eggs or butter. I’ve read that this cake was created by resourceful moms during the time of Great Depression in the US. I’m not sure why it’s called crazy cake, though.  Maybe because it must […]
