I was never much of a cook. Oh sure, I know how to prepare the local staples like tinola and chicken afritada, but other than that, I find my culinary skills to be sadly lacking.
Now that I am married, I suddenly realized that I was in-charge of the meals at home. No more dad to cook for us and we sure can't be having fast food everyday. So one fateful day at Robinson's Imus, I was quite lucky enough to have come across a Yummy recipe book. And boy! Was it ever a lifesaver.
|Yummy recipe books|
Chockfull of simple recipes derived from Summit Media's Yummy magazines, these titles have got me hooked from the very first recipe I tried -- Lola Virginia's Asadong Manok de Carajay.
Having tried an Asadong Manok de Carajay recipe once from another source, one of which did not produce the results I wanted, I was determined not to fail again. So when I tried it again using the recipe from Yummy's Filipino Favorites title, I hit the jackpot! It was an instant hit. No leftovers and my family was even requesting for a repeat performance. J
Ever since then I've been a huge follower of their line of titles and have been slowly completing the whole series. Hallelujah! There is still hope for someone like me who's all thumbs in the kitchen. J
Yummy recipe books are available in major malls and bookstores nationwide (Philippines.)
