Day 6: Sweets/Desserts

Nothing is sweeter than the togetherness we share” 
That quote is from a famous donut store in the Philippines. Well I disagree. Candies, cakes, ice creams, DONUTS, chocolates, etc.. Those things are what I consider as the sweetest of them all. No I love you‘s or such things can beat the sweetness those foods can give you. (Now i’m not heartbroken or anything hahaha)  
Sweet foods are comfort foods. Whether you feel like you’re on-top-of-the-world-happy or down-to-earth-sad, sweet foods can give you the comfort you need. They’ll always be there for you. You can definitely count on them to be there for you whenever you need them. (Hugot pa moreπŸ˜‚) 
Some study shows that sugary foods such as chocolates, gives off the “happy hormone” also known as serotonin into your body. So anytime of the day, especially when you’re feeling down or low.. Have a break, have a kit-kat πŸ˜‰ 
Now for those who are conscious about their figure and are having a hard time resisting the temptation of sweet delights, you can always try a piece of dark chocolate each day. Eating a piece of dark chocolate each day can help improve your hormone health and overall body health since dark chocolate contains at least 50 percent cocoa and has less sugar than other forms of chocolate. 
We had no trouble about the theme of today’s blog since we’re always going out to eat and majority of the things we eat are sweets! The sweets from the picture uploaded was from Cafe Moraco, Coffee Project, and from Llao Llao. You can check out their stores on fb(link will be included at the end of this post). Some were a bit pricey but the overall presentation and taste were great! It’s worth a try πŸ™‚ Coffee Project is the perfect place if you want a place for some alone-time. It’s so peaceful and quiet, also the layout of the place is just relaxing to look at.

Day 4: Own Recipe

Grandma’s Apple Pie...”
I recently visited my grandma and I was looking at this magazine with different recipes for all kinds of desserts. My grandma asked me what I would like to try to bake and since I was craving for apple pie that day, I quickly answered “APPLE PIIIIIEEEEEE!” With excitement in my voice. She then walks to her desk and pulled out an old notebook from one of the drawers. She was looking for something written in the notebook and when she found it, she handed it to me. Written in her notebook was a recipe for apple pie, I got too excited so I read the whole thing instantly. The ingredients were simple.. Just some flour, cinnamon, salt, apples,… I asked her when can I bake and she said next weekend. I was eager to bake an apple pie so I read through her books and I even did some research on the different styles of the pie and such.
The day came and I started preparing the ingredients. I followed the instructions thoroughly and my measurements were really precise. Imagine the excitement in my face as I watch the pie bake itself from the oven glass! I can’t stop checking every 3 minutes haha! And the smell coming out from the oven was soooooo tempting I just wanna grab the pie with my bare hands and eat it whole πŸ˜‚ .. After 20-30 minutes, I carefully took out the pie from the oven and placed it on top of the stove to cool it down. My grandma took the first bite to taste it.. I was so worried but then she told me that the taste was perfect I felt so relieved! My first apple pie… 
I wanted to bring some to school but there was none left hahaha! Baking or even cooking is fun. Whether it’s just a simple no-bake cakes to your lola’s adobo recipe, you should try it at least once in your life. Some people find it relaxing to cook, some expresses their emotions in baking. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll be a famous chef or cook or a baker. Give it a shot!
