I truly enjoy my do-nothing Sundays. No chores, and church usually takes place on a Saturday afternoon. So with all random task aside, I like to use my Sundays for food blogging, or in today’s case, for baking. Soft pretzels seem to be a good choice…
I think my Filipino peers would agree that Tahô, a staple snack in the Philippines brings out the childhood in all of us. I remember this street food dessert as early as 8 years of age. Street vendors would walk around the neighborhood holding two aluminum buckets (The larger bucket carries the tofu base; the smaller bucket holds the arnibal and sago pearls.) that hang on each end of a yoke and carried securely on their shoulder and yelling out “TAHOOOO”–much like the ice cream truck vendors driving around with a looping, cheerful melody that somehow screams out, “ICE CREAM” is coming your way! Come and get some…
It is the simplicity of French food, or in this case, French dessert that makes it ideal for re-creating at home. Here’s my creation using my two favorite things, blueberries…and edible flowers. Bon Appétit…
Last year I tried to experiment with making homemade dolmades, but was unsuccessful with the rice bit. It was not cooked all the way through…so, I have not given it another go ever since. Having been exposed to dolmades at a young age, thanks to a handful of friends whose moms’ were experts in the making of, my palette simply fell in love with them.
Just a little play on deviled eggs last Easter Day. My personal take is versatile enough to make for any occasion so I am personally calling this one a ‘Celebration’ deviled eggs recipe!
What’s incredibly easy to love, amazing Asian, and amazingly easy to make? Spring rolls!
This is a simple drink that I grew up with in the Philippines. There is really not much to making this drink but fruit, water, milk and sugar, yet it’s quite refreshing! If you Google it, you will see that it’s made in many varieties, depending on everyone’s preference. I never even realized that you can add milk to it as I have always had it without. Regardless, below you will find my own, simple recipe for cantaloupe coolers and, perhaps you can put your own twist to this drink, as well 😉 Cheers!-gcc
Okay, who doesn’t love brownies? Specially these sticky-finger ones that also stick to your teeth when eating them…hehe…just don’t smile afterwards (or during)! Was on a little baking frenzy yesterday, so here we are! Bet yeah can’t have just one 😉 Served warm, these not-too-sweet brownies are also great à la mode.–gcc
Good to be back home at my little corner in the kitchen. Visited mom for a few days at our old neighborhood in Brentwood, California and ate like there was no tomorrow. Although back in my cozy kitchen cove, I was not quite ready to dive into the chopping board yet, so I whipped up something quick and easy for dinner. If you recall my baked tortilla chips and dip(s) post on Superbowl Sunday–where I mustered a variety of seasonings for the baked tortillas, last night’s Bacon & Four-Cheese Tortilla Chips with Chunky Guacamole topped with homemade Crispy Bacon Bits dinner made for a wondrous evening of light snacking, yet was filling enough to satisfy my family’s hungry palettes.
Thus, without further delay, below is my rendition of homemade guacamole, chunky style!
