Hershey’s Best Brownies

Hershey’s Best Brownies

Since I had such great results from Hershey’s ‘Perfectly Chocolate’ Chocolate Cake for B’s Heatwave cake, I was inspired to make their Best Brownies too. As a beginner in baking during my 2nd year of secondary school in Manila, Hershey’s...
Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

  Lately, I find myself making this Barbecued Baby Back Ribs whenever we have a small gathering at home. I can┬áprepare the sauce and boil the ribs a day or two before the party and that way, I am more relaxed on the day of the event. I also get rave reviews every...

Foolproof Chicken Adobo

  Being a novice cook, I’ve tried a few chicken adobo recipes in search of the taste that is close to what I grew up eating. I do have my mom’s recipe but no matter how hard I try, I really cannot make my adobo taste even close to her adobo. It...

Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowl

Every time I am at a loss on what to cook for dinner, I find myself cooking this as it’s the easiest and fastest to cook on my file so far. It goes well with any steamed or blanched vegetables like carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. It’s also good with...
Pineapple Tarts

Pineapple Tarts

I used to spend a lot of money on Pineapple Tarts every Chinese New Year. One tub of these treats are never enough for me during the festive season and I never thought that there would come a time that I’ll be able to make them myself. They look tedious to make...
