KITCHEN "TO DO" List 2015







Updated : 26 October 2015

I have so many things to cook and bake in mind.  Finding the needed ingredients for some recipes will be a challenge since some won't be available here in Qatar.  Another would be my capability to withstand the perils of cooking and baking (I'm just being dramatic)

Hopefully this year, I'd be able to cook and bake more.  So  here again is my "TO DO" List for 2015

KITCHEN "TO DO" LIST 2015
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

This is a list of  kitchen "to DOs  "to BUYs", and  "to cook" dishes, meals, baked goodies that we plan to achieve within the year 2015.

Personally, my focus will  be more on :

1. Filipino and other Asian dishes and to create healthier dishes out of it.

2. Baking and developing more recipes on breads and cakes. 
3. Dessert creation - chocolates and other confectioneries

4. Learning cake decoration techniques – figure piping, chocolate molding, and gum paste

5. Food presentation

6. Learning photography and photoshop

7. improving on my writing  skills:-)

Hopefully, by the end of this year 2015, I'd be able to:


1. cook at least 20 Filipino delicacies focusing more on the use of rice, 10 Filipino noodle dishes, and at least 100 main dishes including appetizers / pulutan.

2. cook at least 10 middles eastern dishes, 10  European, 10 Asian, and 10 other foreign dishes
