I’ve only tried to make this recipe once before and love it! The first time was a semi-success, despite how half of the stuffing came out and the sense of nervousness upon trying out what looked to be a complicated dish. This time I felt less nervous about making this dish and also bought a slightly larger flank steak. With all baking aside, one thing you will learn about my style in cooking is that I don’t quite measure anything. As long as I have all the right ingredients, and even if I didn’t, I just go with the flow of things. I like to experiment with taste as I imagine most home cooks like me do. Thus on this note, below is my personal recipe for this classic Filipino dish.
I FINALLY got around to making this wonderful dessert that I have seen plastered all over Instagram. I thought what better way to enjoy my all-time favorite meringue cookies in a ‘messy’ sort of way! When all was chilled and ready for devouring, my son says to me, “Oh it’s good…but kind of messy…” I simply smiled and said, “An Eton’s Mess” 😉
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE meringue cookies ever since I was a little girl. I remember moments after school, when my grandmother would often surprise me with a paper bag full of meringue cookies. She purchased them from a local market not too far away from our home in the Philippines. Since then, meringue cookies have always been a part of my life.
I was definitely early birding this morning, at 2:30 am to be exact. You know what they say, ‘the early bird gets the worm…’ so after catching up on some blogging and a quick Cup ‘O Joe…off to our local farmer’s market I go! My total shopping spree was $58.00 and my goal coming in was to buy fresh strawberries to make an Eton’s Mess. So strawberries, amongst other goodies and back home I go. My younger son loves to snack on strawberries and I can’t wait to make him the Eton’s Mess but before that, a special request for a strawberry smoothie…my way 🙂
Here’s a great recipe to making your own cake mix at home!
I was playing around in the kitchen yesterday with a new dessert recipe, meanwhile, the recipe involved the use of three large egg whites. Because I don’t ever like to waste food, as much as possible, rather than tossing the yolks, I decided to do a quick lunch makeover…
So here we are…for those who want a little more substance than jello shots. You can have these mini cupcakes and eat them, too…Cheers!
I’m not much for ready-made dough, but when push comes to shove and I need a quick, easy way to entertain I never go without these wonderful crescent roll dough. Any brand will do, and I happened to stumble upon these 2 for deals at the grocery store the other day. So here’s an ode to easy entertaining and a few interchangeable options to boot…
