    Señor Sardinas

    This is the second of eight grilled cheese sandwiches I prepared for the party I hosted for Foodbuzz 24×24 this month. This sandwich is called Señor Sardinas. For this sandwich, I used Spanish sardines, the store-bought kind 🙂 Spanish sardines can actually be tomato-based but here in Manila, when we speak of Spanish sardines, we think of the kind that uses olive oil as a base. Making this sandwich is as easy as 1-2-3. Seriously.

    Adobo King, Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/ Adobo Shreds

My contribution to Foodbuzz 24×24 this month is called Grilled Cheese Overload. August is considered as the National Sandwich month and also the National-Back-to-School month. I figured that hosting a grilled cheese…

    Monsees Cafe

    Moonsee’s Chefs and Bakers, now Monsees Cafe in White Plains, Quezon City, is owned and operated by a fellow lawyer and friend, Marina, who has a passion for baking and good food. Despite being a lawyer, she still pursued a course in bakery and pastry arts at the International School for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management (ISCAHM). When asked if she misses lawyering, she told me that instead, she’s thinking that she should have done this (Monsees) a long time ago. *idol!* I really admire people like Marina and I’m hoping that one day, I’d get to say I don’t need to be a lawyer because I’m already doing what I love…
