Coconut Cupcakes

At the start of the week, my mom told me one of her co-workers was having a baby shower in the office and everyone was bringing treats. Since I’m at home, she had put me in charge of making treats.


This is a close up on the Asian Pears so far. Hopefully, it will survive until harvest because we had quite a few broken branches lately due to high wind. I watched the weather report a few days and the weatherman said it’s supposed to rain in the upcoming week. Hopefully, that’s true. The weatherman…

Summer Harvest

So here are some pictures from the recent harvest of blackberries. I have a suspicion there is a lot to come. My mom picked these. I told her to only pick the ones that are black as coal but she didn’t believe me. After all, what do I know? I’ve only been the sole harvester of blackberries for last three…

Linger over Breakfast

Today’s prompt asks: Tell us about times in which you linger — when you don’t want an event, or a day to end. What is it you love about these times? Why do you wish you could linger forever?

What’s For Breakfast?

Ever since my aunt and cousin left, the fridge has been mostly empty. We went from going grocery shopping every few days, which is crazy, to every two weeks or month, which is what we do now.

#AtoZChallenge – B for Breakfast

I peeked at my fridge this morning for a little breakfast, it’s practically empty except for the overwhelming amount of vegetables my mom bought on Saturday before coming home to hassle me to write her paper on Argentina for her. Essentially, I am out of breakfast.

My Special Thursday Lunch

I’ve been itching to write this post all afternoon. Honestly, I thought I would’ve gotten home like more than two hours ago but no, my orthodontist decided to make me wait. So I was sitting in the hallway outside his office for more than an hour before he called me in. Also, the traffic hadn’t been…


Pumpkin Pies for Lazy Cooks

Originally posted on Crazy About Food:
So on Tuesday night, my mother came home announcing her office at work was having some kind of get-together on Thursday and they had asked her to bring something. She didn’t know what until she got home. A pie, she insisted. But where can she get it? She didn’t want…

Top favorite drinks but not signature

I have three favorite drinks but I don’t have a signature drink. I tried to replicate my favorite drinks a few times to tweak it to make it my own but it was never successful. I guess I don’t have a gift for making drinks. Either that or you can only make it using professional…

Unlikely Food Pairs

“There is no such thing as too much.” My step-dad told me long ago when I apologized for putting too much blueberry in my muffins. It might be true in this case but it may not be for other scenarios. Sometimes, too much of one thing over another might just form an unlikely pair. In…

The Problems with Baking

As I sieved through old posts looking for inspiration for today’s post, I came across this one draft that I’ve never managed to finish. But the way, this post was originally started on February 3, 2013. As usual then, it was a spur of moment thing, feeling of anger and annoyance.
