Treat-and-Treat

This is a long overdue post but still worth posting.

Last October 30, my daughter covered the Nickelodeon event in SMX Convention Center. And because we don't frequent that area, she wanted to try the drinks at Caffe Bene. I was in for a surprise though because she said that she's picking the tab!



We had the Caramel Frap because we both like the flavor. We also had some crinkles to go with it.



But the treat didn't end there. Before going home, we seem to have found ourselves in Greenhills. She was a bit hungry so I suggested dinner before going home. She said she wanted to eat burrito so we went to Army Navy. After ordering, she suddenly declared that the meal is on her also. Wow! Thank you anak. Love you!!!

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.
