How warm bread and tangy jam keeps my low days at bay

Everybody has days. Days when the soul feels restless; and the mind is miles away from the physical body. You know, those days when you feel the most like you’re supposed to be somewhere else doing something else rather than the here and now you possess. To me it’s not particularly a sort of discontentment, …

Learning to love the green tea-red bean combination

We’re taking a little break from the Japan travel blogs because I haven’t had the time to make the next posts in the series yet. But what else should I write about except this Japanese-inspired bread? This has been on my drafts folder for such a looooong long time. So long I don’t even want …

Edible horns filled with Nutella cream anyone?

The world of food is fascinating. It seems there is always something that gets created everyday that can serve each and every person’s gastronomic whim. Whatever version you prefer of a particular dish or food item, there’s bound to be a recipe for it. It’s bound to exist. Food is one of those things you will never …

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. Whenever the teacher asked a question you can practically hear the crickets sing. At times some of us would get sick of the silence and raise our hands to answer just …

On falling in love with the beautiful challah bread

I’ll be the first to admit I am quite ill-prepared in terms of recipes for this year’s Holy Week. Being Catholic, my family and I practice abstinence from meat beginning on Good Friday up until Easter Sunday. I wish I could share some meatless dishes with you this week, but from the messy way my …

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. There’s something about them that’s so comforting; something that fills me with …

The bacon-lover’s cinnamon rolls

Around this time of the year I get a very real urge to make cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon is a very all-year-round type of spice but it gets especially warm and cozy as the countdown to Christmas begins. I’ve made a couple of cinnamon roll variations before, starting with the easy classic version, then a pumpkin …

{Filipino Food-Love} Days of pan de sal lovin’

I have very real love for breakfast. But among all the breakfast foods I enjoy, I have to say there is nothing quite like a hot piece of pan de sal in the morning. A perfect pan de sal is super soft, light, and airy, with a slightly crunchy exterior. It has just a hint …
