Sometimes we can all use a little bit of butterscotch and perhaps a few drizzle of caramel in our lives, right? Mix this together, along with a few other heartwarming ingredients and place it in a cast-iron skillet …My friends, you’ll have yourself a heart pouncing, whirlwind of a dessert in no time flat!
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
“Tres leches” is Spanish for “three milks.” The cakes that bear this name are sponge cakes that are literally soaked in three types of milk: sweetened condensed, evaporated and half-and-half [for this recipe].

With my favorite recipe books lined up and food writing class as we speak, I am off to a good start for the new year! Speaking of which, as I hone in on my Filipino roots, although I don’t practice most, I still like to partake in learning about our traditions, customs and superstitions. In […]
What I have for you today is my rendition of an Ice Cream Gâteau. Ice cream gâteau is easy to prepare, yet looks spectacular. By using a layer of parfait for both visual and textural contrast will add the finishing touches just before serving.
Here we are once again, perusing through the website for the inevitable dessert after a nice comfort meal.

It […]

This is a special treat that my older son made when we spent a week at my mom’s for Thanksgiving. Although his major has changed from Culinary Arts to Journalism, he still has a knack for baking and it’s always something I look forward to whenever I see him or he comes over our place. […]
This recipe came as an inspiration from a fellow food blogger, Instagram follower and foremost an avid foodie, like myself! Anna (aka Bambi) of Adobo Down Under posted a photo of her delicious “Really Moist Banana Bread/Cake” recipe on Instagram one day, and I thought to myself…I’ve got bananas sitting on our kitchen counter doing […]
Making butter is quite easy: heavy cream needs to be shaken or beaten to a point where the buttermilk and butterfat separate. This can be done in an old-fashioned churn, by shaking the cream vigorously in a jam jar for about 30 minutes (See my last post about a butter kit I purchased), or by […]
So in the back of my mind I’ve had this pending goal that one day I will make pistachio ice cream from scratch. Two weeks ago I got around to buying the pistachio nuts from the grocer and placing it at the usual spot in the pantry for later use. But of course, my hubby […]
I woke up this morning with a mentality of kitchen play. I had a lot of fruits in the fridge and always a pantry full of baking ingredients. My idea was to make pies in jars because I had a lot of mason jars just lying around in the garage. I set everything up–mise en […]
