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. I just love that  creamy cheese and extra-virgin olive oil in my pasta,  I like spaghetti the most among all pasta shapes and sizes out there.  Of course you may use your preferred pasta for this recipe, I like […]

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 […]

They’re perfect for tea time. I […]

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido means melted (or molten) cheese.  If you Google it, you will see that it is usually with chorizo (Spanish or Mexican sausage).  I decided to use  longganisa  (Filipino sausage) which I make regularly at home because it is my favorite :) My version of homemade longganisa is loaded with garlic and it’s skinless […]
