Fare Thee Well Bliss

Bliss Cafe in Baguio City will serve its last order later today and bids us farewell. Although I've discovered it only in 2011, I've been visiting this cafe whenever we go to Baguio. Also, I didn't know then that it was owned by a friend.

Bliss Cafe is one of the vegetarian restaurant and belongs to the must-visit-place-when-in-Baguio. The place looks very nice and relaxing also. The place is owned by a husband and wife team who also does yoga and meditation and it does reflect on the way they decorated the cafe. The vegetarian chicharon here is l-o-v-e. Read about Bliss Cafe here.


I asked my friend during our trip to Baguio last week why they are closing shop and she mentioned that she wants to embark on a new journey.


I know a lot will be missing Bliss Cafe (including me) since it's one of the popular places to dine and visit when in Baguio but I understand my friend's need to answer an inner calling, a new life path and journey. So here's wishing Shanti and Jim, goodluck on your new endeavors this 2014 and A-Blissful farewell to Bliss Cafe.

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.
