Turning Five

Daughter is officially five years old today. And in the blink of an eye, she's big already. I remember her as a little baby in my arms, her first steps at Rizal Park holding her Hello Kitty shoe! Making lots of friends in school and drinking endless caramel milk frap from Starbucks. Getting crazy over Barbie and now with Polly Pocket.

Prepared pasta carbonara and hotdog; ordered pancit palabok and someone cooked sisig for daughter's birthday party. Ate H bought the chocolate cake from Goldilocks.

We invited cousin H along with kids, M and A, Ate A and K, cousin M, wifey K and the kids- R, P and A. Then Ate L came over, as well as P and JJ and E. H and K are also present. Ninang P dropped by after the party. It was fun and the house was full of happy visitors.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food.

Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
