Chez Karine Macarons

Eversince that fated day when the last crumb of Laduree macaron disappeared, daughter and I have been craving for something similar. Luckily, I had to go somewhere in BGC so I made a mental note to visit Chez Karine.


And these lovelies greeted me upon entering the store. I love the bottles!!!



It is so easy to fall in love with the boxes. I love food with nice packaging because it just means that the happiness of the client was considered aside from the taste of the product.


I got a box for me and daughter to share. 2 each of choco-mint and salted caramel, though. I also got the speculoos and red velvet-- didn't make a lasting impression. And chocolate-- great! Love the three flavors. And the best part was, even if it stayed in the fridge for 3 days, the texture didn't change. Thumbs up! Even hubby who doesn't really like macarons was asking for more. I might visit the shop again and surprise hubby with a box or two. :)

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.
