Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Everything you love about strawberry cheesecake but in a cupcake.

Spritz Cookies

Similar to sugar cookies they’re buttery, crispy, with a hint of almond. These addictive morsels are formed with a cookie press and are easy to make.

Banoffee Pie

A classic English dessert, toffee, bananas, and a little chocolate how can you go wrong? Also pairs nicely with a pot of earl grey tea.

The only shortbread cookie recipe you’ll ever need.

Buttery, crunchy and semi addictive cookies.

Lemon Bars

With only a few ingredients you can make a decadent, tart lemon curd layered over a rich, buttery shortbread crust.

Raspberry Lemon Eclairs

Banana Lumpia (Turon)

The thing that I love about filipino food is that it’s hard to nail down exactly what that is because so many other countries have introduced their own foods to the Philippines and we’ve made it our own. Every family has their own version of every filipino dish and this is no exception. These are our Banana Lumpia or Turon.
