Smells like something’s on fire…

Why the food blog? As explained in my “About” page, I just needed a virtual place to store my favorite recipes in, even that simple, mundane dish that I cooked this morning (e.g. sauteed corned beef), along with my thoughts. I’m sure this will come in handy one of these days, when my memory starts to fail me and I forget a particular cooking technique for a particular dish. This has actually happened to me countless of times. I recall having made what I believed to be the best leche flan, wrote the recipe in a piece of paper, even backed it up in a computer, only to have totally forgotten about it when I changed addresses and upgraded my computer.

It goes without saying that I enjoy cooking, albeit these are very simple and basic dishes. (e.g. sauteed corned beef). I have no intention of outdoing anyone when it comes to the kitchen. Actually, my idea is to put it online too so I may share it with my friends (who don’t mind simple and basic dishes e.g. sauteed corned beef), with the hope that they may enjoy it as much as I do, and also that they may share their recipes. See, my food repertoire is also limited- there comes a time when my family gets tired of the dishes I prepare. So I could use a little help here too. I’ll give you all the credit though. And should you want to keep it a secret, then I shall treat it that way. I have recipes that I keep to myself too, you know.

It is important to note that I am no expert cook. I just learned to cook on my own when I lived by myself in Manila. It was a matter of survival. Of course, I’ll give credit to my Mom who taught me a few things, although honestly most of the things I learned I got from newspaper clippings, lost cookbooks, online, friends, and experimentation. And I am still learning as I go along.

I intend to update this as often as I can, assuming that I’ll be cooking, and if I remember to take a photo of the dish. This is also dependent on the number of dishes I know. I’d be lucky if I go over a hundred.

Okay. Here goes nothing…
