“Cookery is not chemistry. It is an art. It requires instinct and taste rather than exact measurements.”
Hi and welcome to my kitchen! My name is Malou and I live in Metropolitan DC. I came from a large family in the Philippines who loves to eat . I grew up enjoying freshly prepared meal from our kitchen. Our family always have get together that comprised of preparing food from sunrise to sundown with snacks in between. Oh, how I missed all of them! My mother has a strong influence in my love of cooking, up until now I ask her for recipes or tips. It is true what the quote above says because in our home that is how my mother cook, you rely on your taste buds.
I have always loved to cook since age fourteen. But passion for cooking did not really start till we moved here in the US. Our friends loved the food we served them and started asking for recipes.
Also, I am a hobby baker who bakes for friends and families. I enjoy decorating cake as much as cooking!
Recently I have added another section in this site. You will now get a glimpse of our travel both new and from the past including the food we tried and discoveries we have found along the way.
You may also wonder who are Cupid and Vixen, well they are our pets. Cupid is our older King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and Vixen is our younger Yorkshire terrier. We love them both though they have an opposing personality.
And just as always, if you have questions and comments they are welcome! Thanks for visiting!
