15: Yummy Eats 2012

Yummy, a Philippine food magazine, is again hosting its event called Yummy Eats on May 26, 2012. This event is great for foodies alike who share the same passion for food, be it on consuming it or making it. :) Another thing, there are lots of food gems available there all just waiting to be sampled- ALL FOR FREE. :) Nothing beats that!

And oh, don't forget to bring your own copy of Yummy's May issue. The magazine will slash 50 pesos off to your entrance fee and you'll only pay 100 pesos. :)

14: Passion

Food is, and will always be, my first love. :)

And this is my growing cookbook collection (minus the magazines):


13: Italian + NY Iced Tea

For today, my sister and I cooked Italian for lunch. Who would have thought that we can make a feast out of leftovers? :) Not us, for sure! We made pizza and pasta with meatballs stuffed with cheese. These are on the top of our personal list of favorites. :)

Almost cooked!
The aroma of meatballs wafting through our apartment is enough to make us drool. My sister and I can hardly wait to taste these! :)

Our pizza looks funny. :)) And then...

Italian Platter
THIS! My sister and I call this the Italian Platter! :) It may not look yummy but I assure you that your taste buds won't fail you after eating this. :) I especially love the garlic cloves softened after simmering in the sauce. Yum yum! :)

Meatballs stuffed with cheese
We also made NY Iced Tea to pair up with our Italian fare. Haha. :)

NY Iced Tea
 The next time we feel hungry again, I hope our fridge has "treasures" waiting for us to cook. :)

Till next time!


12: Buttery Cupcakes with Oreo Frosting

Baked these babies after my sister's graduation. :)

Originally, these should be VANILLA cupcakes but turned out too buttery hence the name itself. At first bite, one would quickly notice the strong butter flavor of the cupcake. Another thing, it's salty (but not too salty) because the butter I used is salted. So I thought of making a frosting that would cut the saltiness of these and came up with Oreo Frosting. Good thing I have a box of Oreo Star that is not yet opened. :)

Before frosting:

These babies had a melt-in-your-mouth look because of too much butter in the batter.

The cupcake at the back of the photo above has a very pointed frosting. Turned out that the toothpick I used to remove the clogged Oreo pieces in my piping tip ended up with the frosting (on which I really have no idea how it happened). Good thing I noticed it right away.
