Baker’s Bites: Happy 87th Birthday, Lola!

My dad’s mom turned 87 last Saturday. Baked her some chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies to share with everyone for lunch. I love making chocolate chip cookies! They’re always a big hit as proven by the crumbs left from the dozen I left for the house. My dad says the box we gave lola was also wiped out. Hooray!…

Baker’s Bites: The Inception Cookie

I’ve been wanting to try this ever since it popped up on my browser on one of my many blog-hopping sessions. A cookie within a cookie. How genius is that? I was kind of disappointed (maybe I was expecting too much?), but topped with a scoop of Vanilla Almond ice cream, it was perfect! Cool Tip: Cookie dough chilled overnight…

Baker’s Bites: Cookie Fail

Chocoholics Anonymous

Actually, I admit it and embrace my chocoholic-ness wholeheartedly. I’m no chocolate snob. It doesn’t matter if it costs P15 or as much as P1,500. If it’s good chocolate, I’ll eat it and love it just the same. My love affair with chocolate started at a very young age. I remember Christmas in Marikina when I was a kid. My…

Artisan Chocolate

Last Tuesday, we headed to seven different stores for a shoot. These pretty things caught my eye when we entered Team Manila. I got the Milk Chocolate with Pili and Pinipig and the Milk Chocolate with Organic Batangas Barako Coffee. Good stuff. They’re a bit pricey at P95 a bar but I’d gladly buy another one! My friend swears the…
