About

My name is Mely Maravilla from Philippines. I love to cook for my family and friends. I am not a chef! You do not need to be a chef to be able to cook, just use your imagination of what is available to be cooked and do it with passion, and you will be surprised that you have created a new dish to serve for your loved ones.:) Enjoy your cooking.

All the materials and contents that I used here, are copy righted under my name, so please ask permission first, before you re-blog or copy anything.

  9. Nice blog!! Many recipes to take note of and one thing that caught my attention is that spaghetti recipe with... all purpose cream? That sounded quite "queer" to me since I'm used to tomato paste, tomato sauce, and tomato ketchup with tomato chunks blended together (you're right... I like "sour"-tasting pasta recipes) with a sprinkling of either thyme or basil. I've really wondered what spaghetti with cream tastes like. All I ever thought of was cream as a main ingredient for carbonara.

    Do you accept guest recipe contributors? God willing, I may want to contribute soon. :) ssD!

    1. Thanks for dropping by, I hope that you try that spaghetti with cream and let me know your feedback about it.
      Yes I do accept recipe contribution, if the recipe that they are going to contribute is not yet available in my site. I will wait for your contribution, I will be glad for it. SsD.

    2. Thanks! God willing, I'll post it on my ever-eclectic blog (I don't have a site specifically for food, but I just write on different [trivial] things) then I'll send it you soon. I'm grateful. ssD!

  39. Hi! I hope you could have an alphabetically arranged list of all the recipes you have here - a simple list of all the recipes so you don't have to browse the entire page just to look for the names, and just at one glance on the screen, you can easily find something.

    I like your blog a lot. :)
