Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

One of my favorite pasta dishes to make. Easy, delicious. Rich in calcium and protein and some fats perfect for growing kids and cheese-loving adults.¬† My family loves it. I sometimes substitute yogurt in place of cream if I’m feeling extra health-conscious ūüôā This is with bacon, folks..bacon! And lots of cheese..hmmm Why are you […]

Tuyo in Olive Oil (Dried Herring Fillets in Olive Oil)

Tuyo in Olive Oil (Dried Herring Fillets in Olive Oil)

This is an upgrade for the humble tuyo that I, like most Filipinos love to eat for breakfast. It’s usually part of that silog meal¬† (sinangag +itlog) garlic fried rice and egg. We didn’t have bottled tuyo in olive oil when I was growing up. Thank you so much for whoever thought of bottling tuyo […]

Buche de Noel (Yule Log Cake)

I’ve always wanted to make this Christmas cake but only got a chance to try it this year. Yay for me. My first try was good but I did not have anything to decorate it so I just used large marshmallows which I cut and shaped as best I could to make ’em look like […]

Monte Cristo Sandwich

Monte Cristo Sandwich

I love this combination of classic ham and cheese sandwich and french toast. I don’t know how this yummy sandwich got its name, I just know that I like it a lot. It reminds me of Jim Caviezel as The Count of Monte Cristo in the film adaptation of the book with the same title, […]

Creamy Mushroom & Truffle Oil Spaghetti

Creamy Mushroom & Truffle Oil Spaghetti

Cream and oil-based pasta dishes are currently my favorite. I still like¬†tomato-based pasta but it’s taking a backseat for now.

Mango Pavlova

Mango Pavlova

This is my first time to make a pretty successful Pavlova. I tried before but my inexperience as a baker made me fail and I never dared tried again until last week when I invited some friends and their family over. I made a zabaglione for my tiramisu and not wanting to throw away¬†the egg […]

One Pot Mac & Cheese with Veggies

I love mac and cheese. I love it even more when I don’t have to do a lot of clean up after ūüôā¬† I love the idea of¬† not having to make the cheese sauce separately.¬† This reminds me of sopas (macaroni soup) that I loved as a kid but with the milk broth reduced […]

Salted egg yolk Shrimp

I love salted egg, I think I may have mentioned it in one of my early posts that I like having it for my afternoon snack paired with ice-cold bottle of coke back in my college years- those carefree days of not having to worry about cholesterol; that time when I do not seem to […]

Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

I love how deliciously messy cobbler looks -that warm sweet fruit-filled dough as it slowly melts the cold ice¬†cream on top. It’s like¬†Yin and Yang in your mouth as you take a spoonful of it. Yum. I found peach slices in syrup in glass jars which makes¬†peach cobbler quick and easy -no peeling and slicing […]
