Celebrating Special Occasions With Red Ribbon

For us Filipinos, we love to mark every special occasions with festivities to make the event more memorable. A gathering of family and friends coupled with a favorite dish or two plus some sweets such as Red Ribbon cakes and pastries has become a staple favorite.


Aside from birthdays, anniversaries, baptismal, we also tend to celebrate monthly "holidays" and other special occasions too. And of course, when Filipinos celebrate something, expect some merriment and tons of food. There's Christmas, New Year, Valentine's Day, Graduation Day, Mother's Day ...

This coming June 21, we will mark another celebration and that is Father's Day. Show your Dad how much you love him by treating him by joining him on his favorite activity such as playing sports or board games, helping him wash the car, or simply making some pancakes for him. You can also surprise your Dad with his favorite cake from Red Ribbon or customized one for him.

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.

Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
