This double chocolate biscotti is everyone’s favourite—everyone who’s tasted them, that is. I’ve been making this recipe for a few years now and even chocolate-timid or calorie-avoidant recipients have come to this tasty dark side.
It’s an absolutely delicious indulgence that’s worth making. I haven’t had one this good that’s store bought. Eat it on its own or dip in coffee, tea, milk, or your beverage of choice, and you are in for treat.
Sliced biscotti pieces reveal the melty chocolate chip goodness.

It is a good idea to keep sun care a regular part of your...

My friend, Brenda, gave me her adapted recipe from Epicurious almost a decade ago, and this been one of my staple zucchini recipes. It is just so darn good.
Whether you’re gearing up for back-to-school week, or just need a treat for the weekend (or...

It’s been two months since I dropped a post in here and many things have happened since then. We’ve ventured out more. We have dined out at restaurant patios a handful of times. I have seen my massage and physical therapists, and had gone out with ONE friend. I had a face mask all the time—except when eating, of course. Yes, you can call me that person who is being extra careful. It really doesn’t hurt me and I have...

I dug deep into my recipe vault, straight into the Childhood Comfort Food section, to make these Pan De Sal or Filipino Bread Rolls. This is what happens during the pan de mic. Oh, I have reached bad pans (puns) level.
It’s been over two months since “staying at home” and physically distancing happened, and I needed a warm hug in the form of freshly baked buns. We used to get these fresh from the neighbourhood panaderia (bakery) early...
