Cooking with Edel: Homemade Avocado Ice Cream

Note: No ice cream maker is needed for this recipe. There’s no actual “cooking” involved here, too. :)


I know. It’s no longer avocado season (or is it still?) but I just want to write about the homemade avocado ice cream I made one random weekend for posterity’s sake. Haha. This easy peasy recipe only requires three ingredients and four steps to make. This is one insanely good (and healthy, too!) dessert for the entire family!

Weekend Story: 2015 Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel + Other Stuff

Last weekend was spent here in Manila in observance of the 2015 Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel. In short, naki-fiesta kami! Not at our neighbors’ houses but just at my in-laws’ and at my siblings’ homes. Haha.

We tried the resto’s new menu which left us so stuffed. Among the many dishes we had the opportunity to enjoy, my fave would be the Creole Shrimps, the Southern Fried Chicken Skin, and the Buffalo Chicken Wings.

Backless Dresses for Special Occasions

I love dresses. I think I’ve said this many times on this blog. While I prefer wearing dresses on casual days, special occasions require a formal dress which is sometimes quite hard to find. Style, fit, and color are just some of the factors one has to consider when choosing a formal dress.

One of the dresses that I find elegant and sensual, at the same time, to wear to a formal occasion is a backless dress. A girl wearing a backless dress can’t help but feel confident and sexy at the same time.
