Sweet--- TARTS

I am not overly fond of tarts but there's always some exception. And this one is a perfect example of that exception since it is really, really good. The tarts came from Cocina Centrale, Pampanga. Read blog entry about Cocina Centrale here.


The tarts are still crisp and fresh tasting after being in the fridge for a week. We've been eating fruits (lychees and longans) for dessert lately that we overlooked these yummy tarts. Even the pastry shell tasted good and doesn't have a flour-y taste (which is why I hate tarts). As for the fillings, its full of chewy fruits and nuts and sweetened just right. And oh, the pastry shell comes in different shapes such as cones, hearts, stars, etc. :)


And I guess hubby loves the tarts, too ... because when I opened the box today, there's only two left! hahaha

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.
