From scratch: chocolate chip banana waffles

Wow, I have not been doing right by you. I feel like I’ve been letting you guys down, not updating my blog more often (and soon enough), so I’m glad to buckle down and do this now. I’d like to start with a bit of honesty: I made these waffles a while back, so it really should have been up months ago. So now that that’s out of the way…

From scratch: Champorado

I didn’t grow up wanting to cook. It was just something I picked up watching my parents and older sister. I eventually developed a bit of a knack for it (or so they say), but never really thought of making a career out of it. Sure, I entertained the thought for a while, but that never really panned out because I didn’t take it seriously enough (and I grew up being very easily influenced by others). Cooking only made  me happy when I’m not being pressured into it, so turning it into somewhat of a regular hobby was perfect.

Visual Inspiration: Oatmeal

The entire day before this breakfast, I overdid the eating, so I thought a light breakfast would be in order. Didn’t keep me from loading it with a couple of add-ons, though.

From scratch: Chocolate chunk peanut butter pancakes with banana cinnamon topping

I’ve been wanting to make peanut butter pancakes for a while now, but for some reason, I’d always fall back to the old habit of making them plain and having everyone just top them with whatever they want. Well, I decided yesterday to stop procrastinating and finally get to those peanut butter pancakes.

Quick fix: McDonald’s Sausage McGriddle

When McDonald’s Philippines announced late last year that they were bringing the McGriddle back, I was surprised because I wasn’t even aware when they brought it over to the country the first time in 2014. Safe to say, trying out this faddish breakfast item, which seems to have brought so many sandwich lovers to their knees, is long overdue.

An all-American breakfast at Ritchie’s Diner (restaurant review)

Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era. And in the wrong country. As much as I enjoy the occasional tapa or lucban longganisa for breakfast, there really is nothing like having a massive stack of pancakes and strips of crispy bacon sitting in front of you at 7 in the morning waiting to be devoured. That’s why I was stoked when my cohorts for the day decided to finally give Ritchie’s Diner a shot early one morning. I mean, nothing screams all-day breakfast like a diner, right?

Quick fix: Seattle’s Best Coffee’s Bacon, Tomato and Mozzarella Toasties

I’ve always been a strong advocate of breakfast food being an all-day thing, so I have no problem heading for a Pancake House and ordering a plate of waffles for dinner. Now, in my quest to find great breakfast food I can order no matter what time of the day, I’m excited to have found a new option to add to my list: the Bacon, Tomato and Mozzarella Toasties by Seattle’s Best Coffee.
