Adobo is one of the most popular Filipino dishes and you will most likely find different ways to prepare this dish. There are recipes that call for coconut milk and add sugar while others will make use of chili peppers. I'd say it's all a matter of preference. This recipe though is the Adobo that I know and grew up...

Happy New Year, everyone! Still hung-over from the holidays? Or have you started your new year's resolutions already? I must admit, I'm still just a little bit hung-over from the holidays. I'd like to continue baking, cooking and EATING  the same way until the reality of the weighing scale hit me (boo). But since I'm still in that mood...I'm sharing this...
chocolate covered strawberry on french cheesecake. very light.
With the New Year just a few days away, it looks like this will be my last post for what has been a truly fantastic year. I just wanted to thank everyone for the all the likes and follows.

Custard brownies. Brownies combined with custard. dessert, caramel.
Everyone loves brownies! This recipe is rich and decadent, and that's just exactly how it should be: sinful! Brownies are easy to muster. All you need are: chocolates, bread flour, sugar, eggs and butter. Once you've done it, you can add your own flavour to it. I am particularly fond of the following: cheesecake brownies (I'll post next), coconut macaroons, and...

Bake Code just opened its first Canadian store in our neighbourhood in Toronto. The Taiwanese bakery is right at home in North York, bringing a nice fusion of Asian and European baking styles. My first visit was pleasant enough, I was just looking to pick up some Mentaiko bread and pork floss bun. Bake Code is a self-serve joint, so,...
ensaymada
I missed ensaymada so much! Ensaymada is a very popular pastry in the Philippines and which is usually part of 'merienda cena' (afternoon snack, en Español). It's just one of those days when you crave for a taste from back home. Ensaymada is a type of brioche bread that's slathered with butter, sugar and generous amount of grated cheese. Some have...
I wonder what Chef Gordon Ramsay would think about my Risotto. Getting it right the first time is always a challenge, and it's very frustrating when you don't. Being a perfectionist, I can understand why he's always upset at the chefs on his show. On Hell's Kitchen, he's always shouting about the fish, the Beef Wellington or... the Risotto! Well, I...
