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!

I love thick soups. The creamier, the better. This soup was inspired by this restaurant‘s version. I didn’t follow any recipe; I just trusted my imagination and my memory of the soup’s exact taste when I had a chance to try it. Fortunately, it turned out better than I expected when I cooked it last weekend. Sulit ang pagod ko!
Here’s the recipe based on how I remembered making it:

This Baked Lapu-Lapu (or grouper in English) is inspired by the restaurant La Cocina de Tita Moning’s Baked Lapu-lapu Cooked with Olive Oil and Garlic. (I work there part-time so I’m unabashedly promoting it here on the blog, haha.) Proof to that is the use of bread crumbs to cover the top part of the fish. This tasty and flavorful fish dish will make you feel like a domestic diva. It’s so easy to make yet it is classy enough to be served during special occasions.
10 pcs. calamansi (or 1 lemon)
¼ cup soy sauce (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
toasted garlic bits (prepared beforehand)

Cheese pimiento is one of my favorite spreads. I love pairing it with pandesal and sliced bread. I had been craving for it the past days so I prepared some the other night. By the way, I learned making this delicious spread from an aunt. When I first tried making it at home, it was a hit with the entire family. This time, the hubby liked it, too.
I’d like to think it’s the Pinoy version I made because it had a hint of sweetness. Haha. There’s no cooking involved here. You just mix everything up and voila, instant yumminess in a spread! (Sorry, I have to use the ‘Cooking with Edel’ title because I’m including this post in that category.)

I’ve always loved a good chocolate cake. When I learned how to bake my own, I loved it even more. I think I’ve finally found the chocolate cake recipe that suits my taste and those of my loved ones. If you remember this post, the chocolate cake recipe I used there was different.
a slice of chocolate-y goodness!
I think this new recipe I found is simpler and better. It’s also quite easy to follow. You don’t even need a mixer in making it. A whisker is enough, or even just an ordinary ladle. But since I’m a little OC and wanted to make sure all ingredients were thoroughly mixed, I decided to still use my Marubishi electric mixer.

This is probably the easiest baking recipe I’ve found online. I said “easiest” because I was able to memorize the very few ingredients and simple baking instructions while making ’em muffins. First time to happen to me so I was quite amazed. You, too, can bake this in your home kitchen!
Anyway, I had the time to bake because it was holiday for us Manila-based workers last Tuesday, it being Manila Day. I got the recipe from AllRecipes.com which is a very useful site for everything about cooking and baking as it has a massive collection of recipes from around the world. Here it is:
