My cousin is training to become a chef!

Gourmet sweets by Janice.

Just wanted to give a shout-out to my cousin, Ja (Janice Doncillo) for taking up pastry and baking college courses. I’m especially impressed with Ja since she already owns a 4-year registered nursing degree.

I commend you, Ja, on your ambitious endeavors. Now it’s most imperative, with your newly attained skills, to visit Seattle and deliver a feast for your cousin.

Or better yet, let’s open a shop here and I’ll run your online marketing campaign. 🙂

Keep checking back, everybody. I’ll post more pictures of Ja’s delectable sweet treats.

Also, if you’re in the Philippines and you want to contact Janice directly about her baked goods, send me an email to either of the two addresses:

And I’ll let her know. Cheers!

Pecan Tarts and Coconut Macaroon Cupcakes…and Pizza.

Pile on the pecan tarts.

Pile on the pecan tarts.

Freaking delicious! Today, which was actually the 21st, Ate Jhoanape (Ate means “older sister” in Tagalog, the predominant dialect in the Philippines; it is usually said with respect to one’s age) concocted some scrumptious sweets: pecan tarts and coconut macaroon cupcakes.

Spent hours at the bakery switching from bread to cakes and eventually pizza! This explains my reason for posting so late.

I managed to pull together my own brand of pizza with sprinkles of 4 different cheeses, traditional tomato sauce, pepperoni, ham, bell pepper and chunks of young green habanero peppers.

Ate Jhoanape, of course, had her own version which wasn’t as spicy and a little bit more circular than mine.
