This is my personal website representing my kitchen. In my kitchen, I have a COLLECTION of RECIPES which have been enjoyed by my family and friends for years. My purpose in creating this blog is to share these recipes with all my kababayans who are away from home and missed their moms' home cooking. For those who have family members who prefer non-traditional Filipino dishes, I have RECIPES for them too, hence, PINOY-AMERICAN..MaMely.
FYI, "Pinoy" is an informal demonym referring to Filipinos.
Today is Saturday, 28th of November. I better finish doing this entry and post it before it becomes too old as this has been sitting in the draft file for a few days. Sorry folks, I have been terribly busy these past few weeks that I had neglected this blog.
Well, the proceeds from my bake sale went to a friend in my home town of Dagupan City whose house was flooded by the typhoon Ondoy back in September. I didn't raise very much money from the bake sale but with the generous hearts of a couple of friends here in Salt Lake, Aida and Bobbi who had given me some cash money out of their own pockets I was able to send my friend in Dagupan a generous amount. Bless your hearts! I also appreciate those who supported my bake sale at the event. Thank you everyone!
the atcara was the #1 best seller. There were only 8 jars available, so they were gone fast....they were all gone within 30 minutes after I set up my table. I had to ask the customers to leave them on the table for a while after they had paid for it with their names on the jars, so my table won't look too bare. Others still said, can I buy this?! Too bad, I didn't make enough.
The polvorons were the #2 best seller. They were sold out within an hour.
the Ensaymadas were the #3 best seller along with the Crema de Frutas.
Most of the cupcakes and cookies were unsold..... inisnab ng mga Pinoy ang dessert pang Americano.
The Bake Sale was a lot of work with low returns, but in a way it was fun specially when I saw people enjoying what I had to sell. It was all worth my efforts. Naalis ang aking pagod at ginanahan pa tuloy ako! Maraming salamat sa mga kababayan ko!!!
