Pan de sal, a Filipino staple, will always remind me of “home”.
This dessert-turned-quick-experiment was brought to you by Jens’ chocolate mousse craving and his Greek yogurt substitution idea. I’m always happy to oblige his sweet tooth and even more so because we were both feeling under the weather, with him suffering most of the flu symptoms. After a trip out of town combined with the exhaustion […]
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to make “hearty” food. Last year I made heart-shaped pizzas. This time I tried a heart-embedded loaf: I was anxious to slice the bread after I took it out of the oven, but was quite relieved after seeing the cross section. For a first attempt, it’s not bad at […]
I would bet a hundred dollars that when my friends and family see this, they won’t actually believe they’re reading something new on my site. Most of them have given up asking me about it. [I won’t name any names… Ha ha.] The past summer, Shulie, asked me if I would be interested in contributing […]
A friend and I were just discussing the virtues of butter. To be more precise, I was oozing with my love for butter and in a mission to convince her (friend, not butter) that it is worth the sacrifice of fat when it comes to baking. Forget about the fat, think of the flavor! Omg, […]
After a busy day, there’s nothing more that I want than fast food. Not the McD kind or the pizza kind. I want something I could fix ASAP without having to fret over ingredients I’m missing. You must think I just bake and eat baked goods all the time with everything that I’ve been posting […]
And I’m back for more #GreatHallowTweet. BOO!!! Do check out my fellow ghoulish frighteners in crime on the left sidebar (look for the pumpkin!). Get some inspiration from them this Halloween season — trust me, they have lots of wonderful stuff for you! As for today here at Gourmeted, I bring you: Mummified Sweet Potatoes! […]
Goldilocks is a well-known institution of baked goods and pastries in the Philippines. Even though I can easily go to their Vancouver location to get my mocha cake fix, I’ve always dreamed of baking a copycat so I can enjoy it anytime at home and knowing the ingredients in the cake I’m eating. I was lucky on my first try of the series, and my family declared it identical (and even better) than Goldilocks. I’ve baked it numerous times since then and is now on the top of the family favorites.
It’s funny how when I get my writing mojo back, I can’t seem to lay off of it. [This is a Leo thing, right Tracy?] So here I am, burning the midnight New Moon oil with a lot of things swirling in my head. I still have two or more IFBC posts, but I’m giving […]
