Highlander Cookies

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

Tokwa’t Baboy

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

Maybe not aesthetically what I aimed for but hey we got … Continue reading Meringue Ghosts (and other ghosts)

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)

Chilling at Oyster and Wine Festival 2018

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

Cookie Dough Protein balls (Finding Strength and Protein powder?)

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?)
