Lemonade Award from Yummy As Can Be

I feel honored to be awarded (for the very first time in my life! Tagal ko na nagba-blog, ngayon lang ako nakatanggap ng award...maiiyak yata ako! Inde....joke lang...) with the Lemonade Award.

Thanks to Yummy-As-Can-Be for giving me this award in appreciation of my attitude/gratitude as I build my blog.

Sa lahat po ng mga sumusuporta sa akin, maraming salamat. Kung wala po kayo, matagal ko nang tinigilan ang pagsasayang ng oras sa blogging. (kuno...di ko lang maamin, isa akong certified blog addict, ke meron or walang nagbabasa...)--Sus! Drama!

Pasensya na at kanina pa ako nanood ng mga Charice ChaTubes. Si Inday kasi nagpasimuno, eto tuloy, na-glue na naman ako ke Charice. I have been an avid fan of Charice since Dec 2007 (opo, bago pa sya nag-guest sa Ellen DeGeneres at Oprah, pinanganga na nya ako. As in. Jaw drop. Simula mapanood ko sya sa Starking, where initially I thought she was Korean. Aba pagdating sa interview, nagulat ako. Pinay! Nakita ko lang yung YT vid nya embedded in one of the singsnap pinoy members. Kung tinitingnan nyo yung other blogs ko, Online karaoke, you know what singsnap is. Pero matagal na akong absent dun...)

Anyway, I digress...

I pass on this Lemonade award to the following people who have been making the lives of newbie cooks/bakers like I was once easier (great attitude!) and those who thank me or others (or provide a reference link) that they learned to cook/bake something from someone else (gratitude):

JMom of InOurKitchen
Stel of BabyRambutan
Iska of Iskandals
Julie of OneWallKitchen
Mely of PinoyAmericanRecipes
TN of TangledNoodles
Wena of Wena's Thought

I will post again tomorrow...about haleyang ube...


  1. I want to teynk my Manang K for giving me this award....
    ngayon lang din ako nagka-award!
    sa totoo lang YOU really deserve this for sharing all your recipes and adventures with us.

    hehe award ata ang word of the day. have a nice weekend tita Lory, pakipukol mo naman sa gawi dito ang halaya at suman na yan. teynk yu ulit!
    (p.s. i'll post that brownie recipe for your husby?)

  2. drstel,
    baka nakakalimutan mo, sayo ako unang natuto gumawa ng empanada...:)

  3. Ohhhh, manang, I shoudn't be calling you that cuz I' m way older than you.You are sooo young!! anyway, thank you very much for the award..that is so wonderful of you to do that. I'm really honored.You have a nice site..marunong kang magluto! I like your recipes. I'll keep coming back for sure.

  4. Manang - Thank you so much! I rely on your site to help me re-discover Filipino cuisine and I'm happy that you've found some value in mine!

    And in response to your question re: the dumplings - the water was meant only for sealing the wontons (I should've been more clear) and the sauce ingredients had no specific proportions so that you can make it to taste. My husband, for instance, prefers a more vinegary flavor than what others might like.

  5. Ay Manang, salamat sa award. Ako din, first time ko yata yang award na yan...

  6. MaMely,
    I am okay with Manang, then I can call you Mame (like mommy), o di ba? I have a series of things I want to do and I will surely refer to your site often.

    Thank you for finding value in my site as well! I always find value in the various foodblogs, esp. Fil-Am. It's almost certain a dish will appeal to my palate, and will surely be a good compromise b/w me and my hubby/stepd.

    You deserved that award as well! Long overdue, I know...

  7. congrats to all of you .... very deserving ka naman manang ...! thanks to you too...
