I’ve decided to make good use of the gorgeous rice from Cagayan Valley in the Philippines that was gifted by a friend, and decided to make some Biko. I found a simple recipe here. I just adjusted the sugar to my taste. And found that the rice needed more coconut milk than was mentioned in the recipe.Continue reading “Biko Birthday Cake”
In my search for everything pink for the upcoming Birthday Celebration of my daughter, I’ve come across “pink lemonade” on Pinterest. Since I love lemons and my daughter loves pink, I decided to test out this recipe that I found on Youtube. It was quite easy to make, and I love the fact that it uses raspberries for color, not an artificial food coloring.
You can make your lemonade as pink as you want. I prefer to have mine with just a hint of pink. But upon serving it for snack to my daughter, she complained that it’s orange, not pink. She just likes to complain all the time. I wonder whom she got that from? 😀
Happy Easter! 🙂

I found this very simple, fuss-free recipe on the internet that I just watched a few hours before the party itself. How very convenient it is nowadays to learn anything at the tip of your fingers and at the convenience of your own home. The internet is really good for this.Continue reading “Festive Lemon Pound Cake”
