Oven Toaster Pizza Baguette
May 30th, 2011 by niceyfemme

Maybe I am a cheapskate; for things or food I know I can make myself. Like pizza. I know it’s just some flour and yeasts, and whatever toppings you like, veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and pineapples. I like some ham and pepperonis in there too. Or maybe I’m just way too much of a control freak, even with my pizza.

The idea to use baguette is something I got from Delifrance. I love their pizzas in half baguette. (Ooh, I also love their Chicken Mushroom Linguine which is something I’m trying to replicate at home with no success.) Unfortunately, Delifrance has closed down already as far as I know. I’m not sure since when since I’m not in the Philippines most of the time but I am sure missing them. So again, in my oven toaster food series, I made my semi-homemade pizza using baguette.

Toaster Oven Cookies
May 27th, 2011 by niceyfemme

My love for cooking and baking started early. I don’t really remember how young I was but I remember to being so interested to peel potatoes and cut them in perfect squares. Then I would find a chair and watch my mom and my nanay saute garlic and onions. I would be in awe with every graceful movement of their sandok (ladle). I would then ask them what to do next. Then I started cooking instant noodles and fry fish balls and fries. My kitchen experiments came a bit later. When I’m alone in the house and I saw something interesting in the television, I’d try to do them myself.

Crunchy and yet chewy. Just like how I prefer my cookies.

Baking was more of a challenge for me. Why? Because we didn’t have an oven then. Also, baking equipments and tools are much more expensive. I remember always getting frustrated when I wanted to bake a cake but we don’t have an oven. Now that we have the basic things needed, I can now bake to my heart’s delight. (I try to neglect the electric bill though, the guilt it gives me.) That is if I’m at home in Philippines. In Singapore, we don’t have an oven. So when I need to have my dose of kneading of dough, I just make chapati.

Universal Studios Singapore
May 14th, 2011 by niceyfemme

We finally went to Universal Studios Singapore and I must say, it made our hearts skip a few beats. It was a fun day.

I didn’t dare try this, the Battlestar Galactica. But Bee did. I think he was shocked haha!

I wanted to take as many pictures as possible.  Capture moments, capture memories. On our way to the entrance.
