My Yummy Apple Pie

The aroma of apples and spices filling the kitchen while baking this Apple Pie recipe is enough to make your mouth water.

Filipino Style Chicken Curry with coconut milk

Living far away from home, one of the things that I miss is my mama´s cooking. What I do is ask her for recipes when we chat and try to replicate the dish as exactly as I can to lessen my homesickness and feel at home again. This Chicken Curry Recipe was the first one I asked from her. Although she usually cooks it with chicken, I also tried it with various meat like pork, beef and turkey (breast) and they all turned out really good. Now it is my husband's favorite dish.

Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

  When it comes to cakes, as far as I can remember, Banana Cake has always been my favorite, and so, it only made perfect sense that it was the very first cake that I tried baking way back when I decided to learn the craft. I have to admit though, the first few attempts were not so successful- it was either too sweet or too dry or too moist and ,at one time, even burnt!!! But after trying different recipes and many attempts, I am now able to say, I have the perfect…Read more→

She came back to me the next day asking how was it that they are moist unlike when she makes them herself, her own daughter complains that it is always dry. I like cakes and cupcakes that are a bit moist. But how do you achieve this? Is…Read more→
How can you make cake bake evenly all the time???

How can you make cake bake evenly all the time???

It is annoying when after having found a perfect cake recipe and doing all preparations meticulously, then only to see the finish product to be not as perfect as it should look. Either they turn out lopsided or have a 'dome' in the center because of uneven rising during baking. I read somewhere that others use flower nails, like the one in the picture on the right, and place it upside-down it in the middle of the pan. They say it evens out the heat while baking and avoid that the sides to bake faster…Read more→
