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. […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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

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 […]
