The only kind of cheesiness I approve of

I don’t think it qualifies as a normal Filipino childhood if you have never eaten any so-called “dirty ice cream”, more fondly called sorbetes, as a kid. This kind of ice cream is sold on the streets in these colourful ice cream carts that are pushed around by foot all over the city by sorbeteros. …

When life kicks your butt, make pizza

Lately I’ve been on a roller coaster of sorts, both physically and emotionally. It has nothing to do with anything particular and everything to do with the normal way of life. Sometimes living can suck the energy out of you, which is ironic in a way. Ending the day feeling tired to the bones feels …

The awesome pull-apart bread in Herb & Cheese style

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} Flakiness is occasionally a good thing

And by that, I most definitely am not referring to people. Flaky people are one of the worst, and I don’t even want to go into detail because that would have to be a whole blog post on its own (I’ve got a lot of experience from my university days, believe me). But flaky pastries? …

An ode to my newfound love for Sriracha

You can say it, I’m a loser. How could I have gone on this long without discovering the wonders of Sriracha? And to think I live in Asia! But you know what they say, better late than never! This is such a curious way for me to get acquainted with the Thai hot sauce though, …
