The most beautiful Ciabatta I’ve ever made so far

Brown ciabatta

This is my 12th Ciabatta to date. I don’t always make it because unlike rice, I don’t want to eat the same bread over and over again. Although it’s easy to make because it doesn’t require kneading, it does, however, require a long time to rise or prove–18 hours. All the previous ciabattas I made […]

  Another accomplished goal for me. A veganized kaldereta. Kaldereta is one of the most popular meat dishes in the Philippines. It uses goat meat.  But as much as I love it–because potato and tomato sauce are the best combination for me –the smell of goat meat puts me off.  I have been craving for […]

  The internet is replete with almost all kinds of free information at our fingertips.  I wanted to post about the health and nutrition benefits of radish but I didn’t know very much, to be honest, apart from a thing or two.
