Baked potatoes with stuffing and broccoli

Here’s a relatively quick and simple dinner idea consisting of a couple of potatoes, bag of broccoli and a box of chicken stuffing. Potatoes were simple. Heat oven to 350 degrees. After giving the potatoes a good wash under cold water, we dried them with paper towels. Next, we make some slits in the potato...

Making Caramel Apples at Home

Caramel apples have always been one of my favorite treats to eat during carnivals, fairs, and those types of things. Ever since that day I had my braces removed, I’ve been craving for some caramel covered apples. I’ve never made them myself, so I decided to give it a try. First stop was the supermarket,...

Flan: Part II

I was a little disappointed with how my flan came out. It ended up looking like a chunky cheesecake and tasted like a ultra sweet egg custard cheesecake.

One ingredient commonly used in Asian...

LookyTasty: The Beginning

Lately, I’ve been traveling quite a lot. Traveling means that you’ll probably not be cooking and will end up eating at quite a few restaurants. Whenever I go out to eat, I always liked taking photos of the dishes that I order. I think it has something to do with capturing the moment, before I...
