Palitaw 1 - Remembering Buwan ng Wika with this quick Palitaw recipe [VIDEO]

It’s a real shame when things don’t go as planned. I had this whole thing set in my head. I wanted to fill my blog this month of August with all things Filipino-related, just because it was the Buwan ng Wika– the Filipino language month. Apart from this Palitaw recipe, I had a list of …

Nestle Creamy Chicken Adobo 1 - Creamy Chicken Adobo recipe at home with Nestle All Purpose Cream

The Nestle All Purpose Cream #CreateWithCream event I attended last July 9 has done nothing but inspire me to cook up a storm.

Sometimes I wonder about Spanish Bread

When I was in high school and history was a required subject, zoning out in class seemed to be a contagious disease among students.

A bibingka recipe for the books and some spiked hot chocolate to go with it

I have yet to figure out why among all the Filipino pastries, there is none I associate more with Christmas than bibingka.

Aside from finally getting a chance to break out my favourite layered outfits, this weather has made the evenings utterly conducive for lounging around …

Bagoong Rice Espesyal with Mura Sarap Bagoong

Happy days and Homemade Chicken Inasal

I really have to learn how to balance my travel diaries to encompass more documentations of food. Whenever I go exploring in a new place, I seem to get so excited over the sights that I kind of forget to chronicle the food. It was no different for my Bacolod trip. You can in fact …

One of my favourite Filipino breads in 3 forms

There are about a million kinds of breads in the world and I love trying them all. French breads and Japanese breads are among my favourites, but I always- always– find myself drifting back to Filipino bread at the end of the day.
