Yes good question, self. I’ve been talking to myself and to my friends how I “used to blog” or “was a food blogger”. I really enjoyed those times and it was mostly time management and laziness that slowly got me out. I always looked back at some of my old entries and remember fondly how life was and how nice it was to have a … Continue reading Why are you back?
Cookies or biscuits? What do you call them? I usually call baked sweets like these cookies, and call crackers and the like biscuits. But then there’s also some stuff I’ve read where they referred to scones as biscuits. Hmm… I’m usually not concerned about these labels, I’ll eat them whatever they’re called, but I wonder if it’s bothered anyone. It reminds me of when I … Continue reading Highlander Cookies
Kumusta mga kaibigan! (Hello friends!) Tokwa = Tofu, Baboy = Pork. There’s so many tofu dishes in Asian cuisine. But there’s so little in Filipino cuisine. Even though our culture was so influenced by Chinese (who have a lot of tofu love in their dishes) we don’t have much tofu in our islands. Saaaaad. But hey hey..all is not lost. I didn’t say there were no … Continue reading Tokwa’t Baboy
Aha! I had to make something Halloween related guys. This is actually the first time I made meringue. I know…weird. For someone who made a lot of sweets before, I barely scraped the vast bowl of sweetness in the world. I can’t say I made the best meringues ever but they weren’t so bad. Maybe not aesthetically what I aimed for but hey we got … Continue reading Meringue Ghosts (and other ghosts)
Pancakes have always been part of my weekend ritual. I’ve made buttermilk pancakes, flourless pancakes, eggless pancakes, pancakes topped with candied bacon, cooked apples, blueberry sauce…the list goes on. Since protein powder became my friend, it was paramount that I incorporate this in one of my favourite things in life. This recipe is for one because I first got into making these protein pancakes when … Continue reading Chocolate Protein Pancakes for One (and self-care)
September has been a great but rough month. I happily turned 28 – I’m the youngest I’ll ever be now, right? But I also had my first injury from Hapkido – one leg sweep (seemed as normal as many I’ve had) and my knee was kaput. That was the day after my birthday – first time I had ever been to the hospital for myself. … Continue reading Chilling at Oyster and Wine Festival 2018
I remember when I was deep into my baking phase I literally baked everyday and my diet consisted of tons of sugar. After all, I liked eating what I baked. I didn’t think much about health back then. I can’t say I’m such a health nut now but I’m a lot more sensible. But hey if you eat cake all day everyday, more power to … Continue reading Cookie Dough Protein balls (Finding Strength and Protein powder?)
Hi bloggo world this is Nelli. It’s been a long time. About a year really since I last tried the blogging thing. There’s been many things that kept me away for so long. Laziness, new hobbies and pursuits. Interestingly, I’ve had so much I wanted so share, so many photos to sort through and show people…so many stories. So here I am. Trying out this … Continue reading Small things
This F.O.U.R. post is brought to you by nature, my camera and my sentimentality. Continue reading F.O.U.R.
