Chocolate Chunk Muffins

For Christmas, I decided to bake some muffins. My cousin went to america this November and when they went back, they send me a cook book about muffins and some candy sprinkles. So in return, I bake some muffins for Christmas since the whole family would be at our home celebrating it.

Everybody likes my muffins! They are so easy to make and I'm sure anyone can bake it. It's a great dessert and is best with coffee as well. I made some changes like I used Goya Dark Chocolate. The end result was great!

Here is the recipe for Chocolate Chunk Muffins.


2 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup chocolate chunks ( I used Goya Dark Chocolates)

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

6 tbsp. melted butter

1 tsp. vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven 400F/200C. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with 12 muffin paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and chocolate chunks.

2.  Lightly beat the eggs in a large pitcher or bowl, then beat in the milk, butter and vanilla extract.

3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid ingredients. Stir gently until jst combined, do not overmix.

4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until well risen, golden brown, and firm to touch.

5. Let the muffin cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then serve warm or transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

This is what the outcome should look like.

I put some frosting to it and I used Betty Crocker chocolate frosting. It was really good!!!

This is the candy sprinkle I used.

The outcome of the muffins that I made. I made 3 batches by the way.

They all turned out great! And everyone enjoyed it on Christmas.

Yellow Cab

Manhattan Meat Lovers Pizza.

This is a long overdue post but I think it deserves to be posted now. Me and my sister always love Yellow Cab. They have great food and were a pizza ans pasta type when we go out. Here are our favorites.

We always order Manhattan Meat Lovers Pizza. We love this all meat pizza. It's far better than more pizza  restaurants out there.

Twiced Baked Potato Halves.

This is seriously one of the best way to cook your potatoes. It's simple but so delicious!

Hot wings.

Not the best but it was okay.

Spaghetti Meatballs.

I really love the pasta in Yellow Cab. It just tastes great and I love the tomato sauce.

I forgot the name of this drink. Strawberry Margarita without the alcohol? LOL.

Nevertheless it completes the meals.

Hope I made you guys hungry with these food!

I always crave for a certain food once in awhile, especially if I haven't tasted it for a long time and I know a lot of foodies out there are the same. That's why when I craved for Mexican food, I went to Mexicali in SM Megamall. And I must say I wasn't disappointed on this food craving!

The first thing I notice about this restaurant is the cute exterior they have. I had fun taking pictures of their restaurant. The designs are simple but very eye catching. It made you feel like you're in Mexico!

The wash basin was really cool.

I ordered the Chicken Enchilada. I like that the Mexican rice really complemented the enchilada. It wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be but it was good and I was full with this just one meal.

My sister ordered the Beef Burrito and when I tasted it, it was good! Now I'm craving for one. LOL.

Now I want Mexican food. I'm going to this restaurant again and taste the other food in their menu. I'm sure I won't be disappointed because I was already pleased with these food.

Sentro 1771

Last November 11, 2011 (that's 11/11/11), I got invited into a event. is a great website for any foodie out there. They have restaurant reviews, recipes, contests, food events and food related articles. My kind of website. You can be a member of this website and post your reviews about restaurants here in the Philippines.

The event was held in Sentro 1771 in Greenbelt 3. It was a great meeting other OpenRicers and fellow food bloggers. We had fun and it was nice talking to some people who has the same interest with me. Which is food! Here are some few dishes we ate at that resto.

Fresh Smoked Fish Spring Rolls. This dish reminds me with the Bangus filled with tomatoes and onions we grilled here at home. So this was a surprised to me because they made it into a spring roll which is very great for appetizers. Very healthy too!

Sizzling Tofu. Whoever invented this dish is a genius. I don't like tofu so much because I think it is a bland ingredient. But this dish made it taste like sisig (which is very tasty) but at the same time without the cholesterol of the pork's skin that a normal sisig dish have. It was tasty and what a sisig should taste like. I am recommending this restaurant because of this dish alone. My favorite dish in this restaurant!

Fried Kesong Puti. Another surprise dish that impress me. This dish is simple and tasty. You can enjoy the simplicity of the cheese and the sauces added a certain taste that is enjoyable as well. Another great appetizer.

Bangus and Eggplant Torta. It's okay. Tortang talong (eggplant) is a staple dish here in the Philippines so it was nice that they changed it up and add Bangus to it. 

Garlicky Adobo. This is their own version of an Adobo dish. I like it because it has a subtle taste of vinegar and soy sauce. it also have a certain taste that I can't pinpoint though but it tasted really great.

Sentro's Bagoong Rice. This dish is enough as it is. A great breakfast to eat because of the meat and sausages it have. I like it! 

Sinigang na Corned Beef. This is the best seller of this restaurant and I can tell why. Their version of sinigang has a sour and tasty broth that can warm up anyone and a great tasting corned bees in it. We asked the manager on what brand of corned beef they used for this dish because it tasted great. We were surprised to learned that it's their own beef and they cured it on their own! No wonder we never tasted like this before. It is great when restaurants have a signature dish that can really surprise you.

Crispy Pork Ribs. I love meat and I love this dish. Really good dish for grilled pork.

Rated GG. GG is galunggong. This type of fish is one of the most common type of fish here and it was nice that they cooked it differently. I love how it can be spicy.

As for their drinks, I really recommend their gulaman. They're really good and very refreshing.

I had a great time at this event and I was so happy that I found a great restaurant like Sentro 1771. The dishes are FIlipino with a modern twist to it. I recommend this for people who wants something different with Filipino dishes. 

I'm also happy that I met new people that has the same interest with me. I'm looking forward to another OpenRice event.

By the way we took a picture of their bathroom because it looked so cool. It was nice to see that their restaurant also made an effort to make their bathroom stylish.

You can check their website here and OpenRice as well

Soyami Soya Chips

One of the problem that I usually have is finding the right snack that not only can satisfy my hunger but can be healthy as well. There are so many junk foods in the market today that it can only give you a temporary satisfaction. Have you notice that you might feel bloated or that your tummy hurts after eating these unhealthy snacks? This is why it is quite refreshing to find a snack that can be healthy and delicious at the same time.

Being a food blogger and food enthusiast, I am always for a look out for something healthy yet can satisfy my craving for a good snack. This is one tasks that is hard to do because most snacks available are full of preservatives. They might taste good but they are not healthy for you. Like wise more healthy snacks are bland when it comes to its taste.

Good thing I found Soyami Soya Chips. This snack is delicious and healthy. That's because this snack is made with real soya, no MSG, high in protein and calcium and 0% transfat. It has three flavors Original, Pizza and White Cheddar. What more can you ask for with this great snack? This is what I'm really looking for and I'm glad this snack can satisfy my hunger, please my palette and is good for me.

This is why you should try this snack! It's great for you and taste to good!

 Last October 22, 2011, I got invited by Enderun for a demo about baking. They were offering a new courses and one of them was a certificate in Pastry Arts. I'm really interested i taking it up so I decided to join the tour and demo.

I was happy that I spent my morning on this school! I learned some new recipes and they made us tour the campus. The campus was really great because it looked like a hotel. I guess they's doing that so that students knows how it would feel working in the real hotel. Anyway, here are the pastries that was baked and we had the chance to taste it all.

Raspberry Financiers

Orange Chiboust Caramel Tarte


French pastries are great! I love them all. I was also happy that I get to share this with my cousin Anne.

Appetite Magazine's Restaurant Festival 2011

Last October 13, 2011, I attended Appetite Magazine's Restaurant Festival. This is probably the BEST food event I have ever attended. Seriously.

I never attended a restaurant festival before and I was surprised how great it was! There were a lot of great food and I was happy I shared them with my fellow food bloggers. We were given a "food passport" where we can get food from participating restaurants.

These are the participating restaurants of the restaurant festival. I was delighted that all of these restaurants did not disappoint me with the great menu they served. Too bad I didn't taste them all. I was too full! But I had great pictures to share. Prepare to be hungry!

I had to edit the pics because I can't decide which one to post!

The event was hosted by the wonderful and energetic Sam Oh. And yeah the guy is staring at her. LOL.

Appetite Magazine's Editor in Chief Nina Daza- Puyat. (Who is super nice by the way.)

That's me, Abigail and Maya. And yes I think we gained 10 pounds from all the food.

So what are the dishes I tasted? Here are pictures of my plates. Yup I only ate 3 plates full of food. I was too full to eat more!

I can't decide which dish is the best because each restaurant has different specialty. All in all I had fun, experience a great meal and I hope this event can happen again next year. By the way, some freebies I got  from the event.

More Lee Kum Kee products! Yay!!!

Well, I hope you like post and visit to learn more about this restaurant festival.
