A neighbor gave this plateful of Kamias today. What am I gonna do with this fruit? First I'm gonna eat them raw with some salt as dipping sauce or sawsawan (a good idea for bad breath and as post extraction regimen). My dentist extracted my tooth yesterday. He advised me to rinse my mouth with warm water and salt the next day.

My New Year Resolution for Cooking/Baking are:
1. Icings / Frostings - I have been making icings for my cakes but I only made simple ones. This year, I'd like to learn more and try the different designs & recipes.
2. Souffle - Never tried it.
3. Native Delicacies - I am not good at it, e.g. biko, suman, cassava cake, puto.
4. Bread Making - I'd like to try a loaf bread, ensymada, empanada & pan de sal.
5. Chocolate Truffles - I think these are easy to make but too complicated???
6. Cookies - to bake some more.
7. French Pastries
8. Spanish Churros
9. Shrimp Tempura - I'm still on the process of trial & error. Sometimes I made it perfect but mostly it turned out like a rebosado.
10. To organize my cooking books and sort out / file my recipe collections.
