About this Cook
I'm a Filipino-American born and raised in Southern California. I lived in NYC for 4 years, and ate at the best restaurants (NOT necessarily Michelin-starred, mind you). I now live in Barcelona, Spain with my husband and we're expecting a baby girl in a month!
My favorite things to cook
Filipino Adobo, rice, a perfect egg. Asian dishes are easiest for me to throw together (Filipino, Indian, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc.), but I also love cooking French, Italian, Spanish and good old American classics!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me how to make cheesecake when I was around 8 years old. Now I love to bake cheesecakes and pies for special, and not-so-special, occasions!
My cooking triumphs
Learning from and memorizing my grandmother's Filipino recipes! Also, trying and executing recipes from "the greats" :) like Julia Child and Jamie Oliver.
My cooking tragedies
I've forgotten food on the stove and left it to boil over one too many times...

Coconut (Haupia) and Chocolate Pie
I made this for a Hawaiian style dinner party (my husband is from Honolulu), and everyone loved it! Like some have commented, be careful to use exactly the amount of chocolate called for; I used 1/4 cup more than the recipe lists and the chocolate flavor was a bit overpowering for the delicate coconut flavor. Make sure your pie crust is baked well; otherwise, it will get soggy. I had to place coins on foil on top of the crust while baking so that it wouldn't rise. Lastly, be sure to cool it in the fridge for at least 3 hours; 1 just isn't enough for it to be chilled through and result in a super clean slice.
