Leaning Tower of Golden Spoon

Going to Golden Spoon Shangri-La Plaza branch is a current fave hangout place for me and daughter. I guess its the yummy yogurt ice-cream and friendliness of the staff that makes as want to go there even on rainy nights. And yes, they are the same staff since the place opened up years ago.

So anyways, after they renovated the Shanri-La Plaza branch, they also started offering new things such as the DIY cups which costs P199 - P399. And the fun part is that you can get as much ice cream (in all flavors if you like) as long as it can fit on your cup, then did I mention the sprinkles, and chocolate and caramel sauces? So anyways, we always get the smallest cup which is called the "cupful." It cost P199.




But this time around, we asked help from one of the staff. Sorry, I'm having a senior moment now and I can't seem to remember her name. However, she's the one with the cheerful face and friendliest smile. And she created a tall tower of ice cream for us--- yum! We only selected three flavors-- red velvet, cake batter and chocomint. From the rim, the ice cream was about 6 inches tall. Then daughter added tons of mallows and toffee underneath. So good but really, its hard to finish it all by ourselves (including hubby). Looking forward to more happy ice cream days (or rather nights) at Golden Spoon. :)

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.
