About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes and cutting out sugar cookie shapes with my little niece.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking and eating lumpia, lechon, and pansit at Filipino family parties. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering enchiladas verdes.
My cooking tragedies
the first batch of chocolate chip cookies I ever made by myself when I was 8 years old, when I put in a 1/2 cup of baking soda in my batter instead of a 1/2 teaspoonful. I was devastated.

Peanut Butter Bars I
Everytime I make these for anyone, I get asked for the recipe- no fail. They are so gooey and a little messy to eat, but trust me- no one will mind. Just grab a spoon and dig in :) I use milk chocolate instead of semisweet. Yum!

World's Best Pasta Sauce!
This sauce is great on spaghetti. I used (2) 8 oz cans of tomato sauce instead of the 6.5 oz cans and the recipe still turned very flavorful. This one is a keeper!

Adobo Chicken with Ginger
I have made this chicken adobo several times in the past few months and it has never failed to turn out great. My only call out would be to make sure that you are trully simmer this dish once covered- addressing that once the lid is on the pot this will make the temperature rise. Not simmering will reduce the liquid too much, make it overwhelmingly salty, and won't leave you with enough sauce to pour over your rice. Also, cut down the amt of vinegar to half. Using only dark meat definitely makes the dish more flavorful.
