• Batangas,  Resto Review

    Cafe Milflores…finally, something cute in Batangas!

    Nestled outside Batangas City’s basilica and a few hops off from the city’s plaza is a little cafe that looks very pleasant and inviting. It’s called Cafe Milflores and it’s located along P. Dandan St. in Batangas City. We went there a few months ago but we weren’t able to come in because they’re already closed. It’s sad because it’s a cafe and it was already closed when we got there around 9PM or so. Now you know how early people from the provinces sleep at night 😛 So if you check the place out, make sure you come in early. The first thing you’ll see when you enter is…

  • Desserts,  No-bake Goodies

    Blueberry Cheesecake Shots & Banana Cream Pie

    For this month’s Foodbuzz 24×24 (see my Meal. Teal. It’s a Deal! post), I had Filipino-inspired dishes from the appetizers all the way down to the main dish. For desserts though, it was tough for me to come up with something Filipino because what came to mind were desserts made of rice/rice flour. I happened to have some shotglasses and thought it would be pretty to put blueberry cheesecake in them. Not totally Filipino-inspired but something that we Filipinos do love 🙂

    Jan’s Banana Cream Pie

    Banana Cream Pie I love to watch David Tutera‘s show on Travel and Living but I have this bad habit of not jotting down important stuff I get from watchin’ TV. As always, I saw this pretty set-up for a banana cream pie and forgot to write down the website where I can download the recipe from! And again, I was stuck with the common recipes that called for a pastry crust. I don’t want a pastry crust though. I want the exact banana cream pie from David Tutera‘s show! 😛 *brat mode on*

  • Parties & Entertaining

    Lunch @ Home

    I love mid-week breaks. Yesterday was a holiday here. It was the Inauguration of President Noynoy Aquino, the 15th President of our Republic. Instead of going out, I decided to just invite my best friends over for lunch and watch the inauguration on TV at the same time. I planned a simple and informal lunch for them.
