Some background story about my glass baking dish

Sharing a story about my glass baking dish for posterity’s sake. You may have seen this anchor bake dish twice in this blog which is actually as old as my daughter

My two-decade-old Anchor Ovenware Baking Dish.

This was given by then Health secretary Carmencita Reodica to health reporters as a Christmas present.

It was a sort of tradition for health beat reporters to hold a simple Christmas party. We had some food to feast on and prepared a little something for each one. The health chief would usually grace the salo-salo and greet everyone a Merry Christmas. Sometimes the token is given (before or) after the health secretary visits the press office. 

Sec. Reodica was assigned at the DOH from April 1996 to June 1998, so this baking dish could be 22 to 23 years old already. It still looks brand new after all these years serving good food and desserts. 

I hope to pass it on to my kids whoever wants to have it. 🙂

3 Gourmet Cookies to Try

As far as treats and desserts go, you can never count out the popularity of a great cookie. An array of cookies already exists, and creative bakers find new ways to tweak existing recipes to create something more delicious and scrumptious. Just as wonderful are gourmet cookies atlanta, and if you live within a certain distance from a gourmet cookie shop, they can be delivered to your home or office, fresh.

Here are three gourmet cookies to consider trying.

Almond Tea Cakes

According to famous culinary expert Paula Deen, almond tea cakes have existed since Southerners have been around. These tea cake treats are great for pairing with tea or coffee after a wonderful lunch or during a mid-day break. The basic ingredients include all purpose flour, baking power and butter as well as eggs and sugar. Then, each baker can include some additional add-ons like almond extract and lemon zest.

Almond tea cakes are hearty enough that two will suffice. If you have a sweet tooth, you may desire more, of course.

Peanut Butter

You have your basic peanut butter cookie, and then, you have your gourmet peanut butter cookie. Gourmet peanut butter cookies include additional flavors like chocolate, fudge and chocolate chips. The inclusion of these flavors that complement peanut butter is a wonderful way to receive a satisfying taste of sweetness, and more, without needing to eat more than one cookie. If one cookie can deliver that much satisfaction to your dessert craving, it means you do not need to feel guilty, afterwards.

Gluten Free of the Day

Some bakeries do not sell enough gluten-free gourmet cookies to bake several types on a daily basis. They do, however, have enough customers that would like at least one gluten-free option each day. The daily variety of a gourmet gluten-free cookie of the day gives you the opportunity to try something new and not get bored.

The simplicity of cookies, even gourmet cookies, is great for your budget and taste buds. Gourmet cookies atlanta includes almond tea cakes, peanut butter as well as gluten-free.

Bibingka: My fave rice cake

From a previous post. Check it http://www.yamikitchen.com/bibingkinitan/

Magpapasko na naman. Naaamoy niyo na ba ang mga pagkaing mabili tuwing sasapit ang Pasko? Dito sa amin wala pa akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng bibingka. Kung tutuusin available na ito kahit anong panahon nagiging mabili lang tuwing Christmas season. Saan kaya makakabili ng pinakamasarap na bibingka dito sa Quezon City? May alam ba kayo kung saan? 🙂
