Daring Bakers: Swiss Roll Ice Cream Bombe Cake

Daring Bakers: Swiss Roll Ice Cream Bombe Cake

The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s world – Life and Food. Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make a bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream […]

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream

I did complete the DB challenge this month, but I have been too lazy to take it out of the freezer for photos. I will try to do it tomorrow. Anyway, here are some cupcakes I made while my mom was here. I normally stick […]

Supplì

My blog has caused me to realize that I like Italian food more than any other International food. The reason could also lie in the fact that I am addicted to ItalianFood.Net and watch their cooking videos almost daily. When I saw this video for […]

Mom’s Blueberry Salad

Mom’s Blueberry Salad

As you can see, I didn’t bother styling this salad. I just let it be. . . A little more than 24 hours ago my mom arrived safely at home after spending more than 3 weeks with her favorite and only offspring – me :). […]

Daring Cooks?: Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Homemade Pasta

Daring Cooks?: Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Homemade Pasta

I wrote “Daring Cooks” with a question mark in the title because I didn’t really follow the instructions in this challenge (and I’m two days late!), but I was inspired by one of the dishes we were requested to make with one of the nut […]

Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Quesadillas and An Award!

Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Quesadillas and An Award!

My lame attempt to “tell a story” through a food photo. Before leaving for Brazil, his home country, my friend lent me this collection of works from Mark Twain. I cannot wait to read it! I rarely eat bacon, but I had some in the […]

BBQ Wings & My First Online Interview!

BBQ Wings & My First Online Interview!

I ate these wings with corn and mashed potatoes. Remember the baked spicy buffalo wings I made last month? Well, since that time, I have made it two or three more times because they are that good. So, I thought I would make the base […]

Pizza Hut Clone Pizza Revisited

Pizza Hut Clone Pizza Revisited

My mom’s pizza: tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, jalapeños, onions, sauce, and mozzarella cheese. In May of last year, I made this clone recipe of Pizza Hut’s Pan pizza and was instantly hooked on it. I love thick and thin dough, but my favorite is the thick, […]

Sausage Buns and Giveaway Winner!

Sausage Buns and Giveaway Winner!

My supposedly fixed oven slightly overcooked my buns, but they didn’t taste burnt at all. I saw these buns on Hearty Bakes and knew that I needed, wanted, and deserved to make them pronto. The dough was easy to put together, but the instructions in […]

Chocolate Sybil Cake

Chocolate Sybil Cake

I don’t know who Sybil is, but she gave Paula Deen a fantastic recipe for Texas Sheet Cake. It is easier to make than another version I’ve made, yet tastes the same, if not better. I halved this recipe, and baked it in an 8×8 […]
