Hello! Hello! Hello! How have you been? I hope this post finds you well, optimistic, hopeful and excited. The election here in the Philippines is finally over! Unfortunately, there is still a lot of hating and complaining =(. Nonetheless, I can feel it in my bones, that the next six years will be a turning point for this country. We now have a very passionate and bold President, like I have never seen before. I am believing that every Filipino will be inspired to do his or her part for the betterment of this beautiful nation. In this light, I am even more gung-ho in becoming a productive and progressive citizen. In my own small way, I will be the change I want to see and I will be the best that I can be! Indeed, I have been busy doing the latter in relation to this blog – refining recipes and my food photography skills =).
I am working on several recipes and taking pictures, of course. It is not that easy to do so in the heat of this summer. We are averaging at 40 degrees Celsius!!! It is really so hot out here and then add the heat of the oven to that. Yikes! I must really love what I’m doing. In fact, I do. I love having this blog even if I often feel like I’m just speaking to myself, hehe. Even so, I am continuing and pursuing excellence by faith ^_^. To you, who is actually reading, THANK YOU! I would love to hear from you in the comment section below. Let me know what you think about this blog and what recipes, reviews, travel adventures or helpful articles you would like to see.
Easy Homemade Cereal Crispies
This is a very easy dessert treat to make and it is perfect to bring for outings this summer. No sweat!
Sticky Cinnamon Buns (Hacking Starbucks’ Recipe)
I love Starbucks’ sticky cinnamon buns but the price of one bun has increased significantly through the years. So I got motivated to hack this recipe and make it at home. After five tries, I think I finally did! So excited to share this recipe hack with you.
Banana Milk Chocolate Chip Cake Loaf
The delicious melding of banana and milk chocolate flavors surprised me in this serendipitous cake loaf. It was not my original intention to mix in milk chocolate chips in this banana cake loaf recipe but I was making this for my niece and she wanted it with chocolate. I remembered I had some milk chocolate chips in storage and so I added those.
Chocolate Caramel Cake with Buttercream Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting …whew! That was long! Any suggestions for a shorter but still descriptive name?
Lemon and Raisin Cake Loaf …which surprisingly tasted like Leche Flan, a creme caramel custard very popular in the Philippines. Maybe I’d call it Leche Flan Cake Loaf instead =p
