I miss cooking. I miss baking. I miss making food. Period.
The last time I cooked was more than a month ago, and the last time before that was in June. Wow. That's a long time ago.
See, my family and I moved back to the Philippines where you have people do stuff for you... like cook, drive and do the laundry.
But as much as I want to cook, the stove in our house right now is a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law, and still needs some cleaning and repair before using. It's a gas-powered 5-burner with a pretty big electric oven below.
I miss making this really yummy Strawberry Black Forest Cake. It looks so complicated and done by a pastry chef but my good friend Grace, who shared with me her recipe, had tricks up her sleeve. I miss you Grace!
Here's a photo of my strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I remember it was my first time piping, and I think it turned out quite alright.
Oooh, fried rice salad with radicchio and raisins! It's probably the easiest to make. It looks so colorful too.
I'll see you soon, spoonula!
