Dolor's Sapin-Sapin

I've almost forgotten Dolor's until I chance upon its newly opened stall beside Kookie Corner in Unimart, Greenhills. I excitedly chose a "bilao" of sapin-sapin that is neither too big nor too small.

Flashback early YK2: daughter's fave pasalubong from her tita R was pizza-pink! It took us several bilaos of sapin-sapin before we figured out that she calls it pizza-pink. Pizza because its round and pink because of the light-red sapin-sapin part in the middle. Hahaha. I even remember driving all the way to Malabon just to buy sapin-sapin from Dolor's. Yes, that's how crazy I can be when it comes to food.



Sapin-Sapin. Excellent!


Puto-Kutsinta (kutchinta). Looks nice. Tastes okay for me but not that memorable.


Puto-Ube. Daughter says its okay. Forgot to taste this. But judging from the empty container, I guess its more than okay. :)

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. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
