Jan Is Cooking

7 07 2010

Hi friends 🙂 I’ve been very busy with FoodBuzz and my food blog lately. Cooking is somewhat an expensive hobby (and unhealthy too if not moderated) but it suddenly gave meaning to my blogging. I miss the interaction I have with my readers. And that’s something I’ve really enjoyed with Warlock Nation and am enjoying now with I Love. Therefore, I Cook.

Here are the recipes I posted while I’m away here in Yada and some of you might be eager to try on something new, so check my food blog out please 🙂

I also did a restaurant review for C2 or Classic Cuisine and an informative post on what a Ceviche is 🙂

I’ll be there most of the time but I will drop by from time to time to check up on you 😛

Take care!





Menu for Mom’s Birthday

3 07 2010

After painstakingly planning for two nights in a row, and after preparing for two nights prior to that for my BFF’s lunch, I was able to come up with my menu for Mom’s birthday on July 10.

  • Appetizer: Ecuadorian Shrimp Ceviche
  • Salad: My take on Cyma’s Roka Salata
  • Pasta: Spaghetti (for long life) with 5 Fresh Herbs and Goat Cheese
  • Entree: Simple Baked Lemon Chicken (not Kotopoulo Lemonato)
  • Drink: Agua de Sandia (watermelon with lime)
  • Dessert: Tartelette Aux Fruit (mini fruit tarts)
  • Coffee: Kapeng Barako with Muscovado sugar blocks
  • Afternoon Tea: Earl Grey and assorted pastries

I don’t know if I should take out the pasta and afternoon tea and just serve a baked pasta dish for merienda.

Need more fine-tuning on this one but at least I now have a fair idea of what I’ll come up with.

So tired now. Goodnight!





Turning Foodie

3 07 2010

Hell yeah! 🙂 Been two days since I joined FoodBuzz and it’s been awesome! If you want to see what I’ve been cooking, you can go check me out at FoodBuzz or visit my food blog I Love. Therefore, I Cook.

Remember, if Yan can cook, so CAN YOU!

Never too late to start cooking. For family. For friends. For fun 😉





Hosting A Lunch

28 06 2010

Wednesday is a holiday! Hurray! 😛

I’m gonna spend it with my bestest friends ever 🙂 Hubby, La Gretta, Claudine and Charles are coming over for lunch and I’m gonna prepare a 4-course informal lunch plus mini-afternoon tea party 😛

Keep you posted after Wednesday! 🙂

I LOVE. THEREFORE, I COOK.





Cooking Is Serious Business

26 06 2010

Stepping it up a bit. Getting into cooking a little seriously.

  • Plan 1: Create a separate food blog.
  • Plan 2: Enroll in a culinary school.
  • Plan 3. Put up a cafe or a bistro.

Plan 1 will happen now.

Plan 2 will happen before the year is out.

Plan 3 will happen when I have enough capital. In the meantime, hello OVERTIME! 🙂





Blog Backlog

6 06 2010

I could not gather enough time to update this blog. First, I’ve been very busy with work after coming back from the States. Second, Globe Broadband is giving me the shits… as in shitty service… I did not have internet for the past two-three weeks. Third, I’m having a grand time over at Tumblr (I started another blog there :P). Then I realized, I love WordPress. I love my blogs over here.

This is why I will try to make up for my blog backlog.

I will update this blog with my experiences in Washington DC, Baltimore, NYC and Las Vegas. I still owe you those. I will also post reviews about the restaurants we went to while I was in the States. And I still need to upload all my culinary experiences at home (naks!) 🙂

Hopefully, I’d be able to do all of these soon. For now, thanks for dropping by 🙂
