I don’t buy ricotta cheese often as I just use it for making lasagna. I still have half a tub leftover from the last lasagna I made and I need to finish it before I go on my vacation. I am trying to clear up any perishable in the fridge as I know Carlos won’t be doing any cooking when I am away. I wanted to make ricotta cheese cake but I don’t have enough of it so I decided to just put it into this cake. Since I still have a lot of lemons on the tree I decided to pick a few and used it in this cake. This cake had a dark exterior; almost like a crust but the inside was moist, tender, tangy and great buttery crumb. It can be served as it is or pair it with fruits or with some whipped cream.

The pictures of this dish have been sitting in my file for a long time and it is time to post it out. I made this chicken dish for the AFF – Japan event but I just can’t find the time to post it during that time because of work commitment. This is a simple recipe yet very satisfying. I cooked this in a skillet instead of grilling it but you can always do so.

Carlos is not a fan of bread pudding that is why I hardly make any but since I have some leftover homemade Panettone from Christmas so I thought he might like it if I use it in the bread pudding. True enough, he loves it a lot and he finishes most of it. There are many variation of bread pudding out there. Some uses white bread, croissant, donuts, baguette or brioche. Panettone is similar to brioche but with raisings, candied orange and lemon peel in it so it is great to use it in bread pudding. I added extra diced apple in it but you can always omit it.

My friend Nor posted a picture of this chocolate cake on FB and it look so moist and chocolaty and I just have to get her to share the recipe with us. I made this cake right away and it was so good. I shared this cake with a few friends and the just raved about it. Some even wanted to place order on it from me and might just take up on that. By the way this cake is steam and not bakes so you don’t need an oven to make a proper cake. Please don't mind the ugly frosting as I suck at doing it :( By the way Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Why not make one for your love ones.
