About Me

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well." - Virginia Woolf


The Kitchen Goddess blog came to life in 2006 after transitioning from its Multiply(dot)com platform around 2004. I wasn't really thinking of a food blog back then but I grew up in a home where home cooking and food discoveries always equates to happy memories. I also love to read and during the time when I created this blog, I was re-reading Amy Tan's "The Kitchen God's Wife." I was also just learning to spend time in the kitchen during that time so I found myself morphing as The Kitchen Goddess.

From that year on, I've seen myself evolve both as a foodie and as a writer. I started attending food related events in 2013 and one of the most memorable event that I've attended as a food blogger was the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival 2013, and as for food discovery, I am still in awe of the rustic leafy noodles that I've tasted this summer (2018) in Siem Reap- Noodles at Neak Pean Temple.

I've always been an adventurous eater and my love for food has taken me to different continents. And when I have extra time, I try to re-create some of the dishes that I've tasted especially during my travels and feed it to my family.

The Kitchen Goddess is not just about the latest restaurant and food offerings you'll get to visually sample some of the dishes I've tasted during our travels, as well as some recipes I created. Baking is still my waterloo and I hope that in time, I'll discover my passion for it, too.


Do drop my a line or two at: tkg388@gmail.com I'd love to hear your thoughts. Cheers!

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
