It has been my dream to publish a recipe book but since it is the age of technology where recipes are readily available with just a click of the mouse, I have decided to go with the flow and create a recipe blog.
Since I only have training from local chefs (who have had formal schooling from chefs abroad) it made me realize that the recipe book may not sell so I totally obliterated the idea from my bucket list.
One morning as i was reading a chapter in the book of Joel Osteen, an idea suddenly struck me. Why not have a blog about my recipes and be able to pursue my dream.
( Actually, Ann, a good friend has already suggested the idea to me but since I am technologically challenged, I just shrugged it off. ) Then I said this is a SIGN for me to pursue the blog and conquer my challenge SO HERE I AM.
This morning the urge to have a recipe book published was rekindled but this time through this blog.
My interest and passion for baking was started and was greatly influenced by my paternal grandma, Lola Palo. I remember when we used to go up to her house in Baguio with my cousin Alfie during the summer and we would make mini sandwiches cut into different shapes like stars, triangles, clover, heart just like those served as hor d oeuvres in.
Then she taught me how to make the lemon ice box cake... ....the first cake I ever made...and from then on my interest and passion for baking was born.
The objective of this blog is to share tasted and tested recipes that I have collected.
Through the years, I have experimented with recipes through trial and error to find the best recipe, for example, choosing the best butter cake recipe from all the butter cake recipes I have baked. Also, doing some changes with the recipe...some I have discovered by making mistakes which eventually turned out better than the original recipe...a few, I totally invented.
Now the blog has come to fruition, I hope you, the reader, will enjoy
this blog I have created.
