{Filipino Food-Love} Introducing one of my ultimate comfort foods

I’ve talked about comfort food before, but lately I’ve realised that nearly nothing else can comfort me in the same manner as this simple little porridge can. We call this Filipino breakfast staple the champorado, and it’s basically a chocolate rice porridge, served with milk. Tell me which part of that doesn’t sound comforting– not …

A lesson on looking beyond the surface

Young people are naive. And I don’t say that to sound old. I am still quite young myself, but the older I grow and the more my mind opens up to new and different perspectives about life, the more I realise how true this is. A lot of young people seem to think they have …

The Super Lemon Ice Cream cure

I feel like a zombie. Literally. The days have mixed and spilled into each other since the flood; since we began trying to put things back to normal. I don’t even want to look back and count how many days it has been. A lot of people are still struggling to return to their regular …

Indescribable Coffee Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m trying to think of a word to describe these cookies, and all I can actually come up with is wowzers. These cookies are definitely amazing. And definitely one of my favourite cookies ever. I can’t think of the last time a cookie has had such a lasting effect on me. It’s the type of …

{Go With the Flo} Lemon-Scented Pull-Apart Coffee Cake- an all-time fave!

I’m sure we all have that one beloved food item; the one that makes us swoon or feeble in the knees just thinking about it. I was pretty sure mine was going to involve dark chocolate, and yet I have proven my self-control in the presence of it again and again. And although dark chocolate …

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} The most amazing Mango Bread

I’ve been waiting for mango season to roll around, and in my neck of the woods, it finally has! One of the best perks about living in a tropical country is that we’ve got mangoes all year round, however the best and sweetest of the crop are harvested around this time. The mangoes here in …

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} The BEST Corn Muffins. Ever.

I think I have established by now how much I absolutely adore things made with cornmeal. Most of these goodies look really simple: cornbread, corn muffins, scones… Just by looking at those words one would never assume there was anything special about them, but people who have had the pleasure of eating them know that …
