That thing Canadians call Nanaimo Bars

We all have off days; days when no matter how hard we try we just can’t seem to hit the mark. These Nanaimo Bars were made on a day full of baking blunders. In fact, I had almost forgotten about them thanks to my disappointment with the outcome of the other recipes I tried. I …

Ooey gooey Creamy Calamansi Crumb Bars

My friend Gilbert was telling me how he felt like a pig being slow-roasted under this Philippine summer heat. It’s no joke. After coming back from a cold 5-degree South Korean spring weather last March, the heat was more apparent than ever. I’m sitting in the office in front of my computer and the air-conditioning …

Mother-of-fudge Tribute to Katharine Hepburn brownies that will knock your socks off!

Cookie Butter madness, part 2

Well, two of my younger brothers have officially converted into cookie butter lovers! And while I remain to be a solid peanut butter girl, I can’t deny I’ve rather enjoyed baking with cookie butter. It just has the most amazing smell once it is added to the batter, and I would keep making speculoos treats …

No turning back now + Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

When I started this whole blogging thing, I had no idea what to expect. All I aimed for was a place to share the things I bake/cook and shoot. Now it feels like a little more than that. Aside from the newfound goal of teaching others and encouraging others to cook and bake too, now …

I really like how lemon bars make me feel

I wonder when this seed was planted. The more I think about it, the more I realize just how unhappy I have been feeling with my life. And I don’t mean it in the aspect of comfort and luxury. I’m grateful for those, sure. I can’t discredit my parents for giving those things to me. …
