Savory adobo is known around the world as a Filipino delicacy. Unfortunately, I found out that this is not true.  The Filipinos’ version of adobo was an adaptation from the Spaniards way of pickling or marinating food. This method called “adobar” was used by the Spanish homemakers to preserve their choice of meat using vinegar and salt. Since […] Read more…

Happiness from a Box

The first time I ever held a spatula and a mixing bowl was in high school. My mother had a recipe for Chocolate Crinkle that she wanted me to try.  The recipe was already premixed in box she bought from the supermarket. I forgot the brand but my first try at baking was a success. […] Read more…
