About me

I'm a pizza-pasta freak and I love food! I know how to cook and I always pursue to learn more. I want to learn the different ways of cooking, the herbs to use, the techniques, and more. I have tried dough making, pasta making, and some baking too.

I am very outspoken on my thoughts and would always ask should my curiousity hits me. I am an outgoing, fun-loving person who enjoys cooking and baking. I am usually adventurous in the kitchen, and loves to explore new things. I like spicy food too!

One of the many things I do with my family/friends is to check out on newly opened restaurants or bistro to try and taste their food and try to recreate it Trying on different venues is how I get to know which is the best to dine to.

Cooking Influences

Italian cuisine. I have always liked pasta and I have been experimenting on preparing them in a different way besides red and white sauces. I learned that herbs and oils could make a difference. I am still looking and learning other techniques to enjoy pasta. At the same time, I have tried making other Italian foods, and learned how to make my own pasta and pizza dough. It is simply wonderful!

Filipino cuisine. I also love my native dishes. One of the tasteful dishes that I have tried. Variety of tastes makes it very good to eat. The appetizing looks and colorful ingredients makes your mouth water. It's amazing.

                          Hi Shalina,
                          Please ignore my message, got recipes mixed up, trying to do too many things at once.
                          Will try the omellette.
                          and let you know
                          Go Well

                            Hi Shalina
                            Want to try your Baby shrimp omellette.
                            In your recipe you say discard bay leaf ,but ingredients dont have a Bay leaf . Also when and where do you add the cream.
                            I can guess but want to make sure as it sounds good. Will brandy from Grapes be OK for the "grappa"

                              Hi Shalina,

                              Would love for you to post, if you have not, a Filipino "Arroz con Pollo" for me to prepare.

                              • ShaleeDP
                                I think we call it "Arroz Caldo". Here is my version of it.

                                Hope you enjoy it :)
