pour the filling over the chilled oreo crust then even it out until nice and flat :)

drizzle the cookie chunks on top of the cake :) refrigerate upto 4 hours or overnight for best results :)

2nd week:

 Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownies :)

I am so excited to bake when I saw Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate mix at Puregold Duty free :)

my first try to bake brownies...

add  the Ghirardelli mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of  vegetable oil, 3 Tbs sugar and 1/4 cup of milk into a bowl; stir until  well blended..   

 pour the mixture into 8inch pan, then put it in the oven (325F) bake for 20 to 30 mins. 

BTW, the ready mix has a huge choco chips inside.. you can feel and taste the choco chips in every slice of brownies :)

 soo yum thus I'll try to bake again next time.. :)

I'm planning to make cheese cake next week :) I bought a spring form pan yesterday hahaha :)

3rd Week:

 (my 2nd time to make a no bake oreo cheesecake :) )

 Enrico recently turned 24 :p . I had planned to do a no bake cheese cake again instead of a regular birthday cake that can be bought from usual cake stores :) I bought Jello no bake dessert  at Puregold Pampanga and brought it to Cabanatuan where Enrico lives hehe. 

Firstly, Enrico and I looked around for blueberry syrup/glaze, Philadelphia cream cheese, butter and milk before we went to their home :P

here's the recipe with some pictures of us while we're making the cake:

it's such an easy recipe to follow, top it what ever you like. The Blue berry syrup gives this creamy cake a rich taste and flavor :)



Prepare all the ingredients :)


1. Jello oreo ready mix crust (number 1 pack)
2. 1/4th cup melted butter

In a mixing bowl, combine the oreo mix and melted butter with a fork until evenly moistened, the mixture should be like a wet sand, pour the crumbs into tray then press the crumb mixture firmly on the tray. Refrigerate for 5 minutes



1. Jello ready mix Filling (number 2 pack)
2. 1 pack 8oz Philadelphia cream cheese
3. 1 and 1/2 cups of Magnolia UHT fresh milk

 add all the filling ingredients in another bowl 1 at a time and countinue to mix it with a fork/mixer until creamy :) (you may add half of the crushed oreos in the filling) 

pour the prepared filling evenly into the prepared crust and smooth the top with a spatula:)


so OC OC lang niya maglagay ng oreos promise >_<

1. Jello Oreo pack / crush oreo biscuits as an alternative :)
2. blue berry syrup (any toppings you want)

drizzle the remaining crushed oreo on top and pour desired amount of blue berry syrup :) refrigerete for 4 hours then serve :P

I let Enrico to finish it off >_< he's favorite task was to drizzle  the remaining oreo chunks and blue berry syrup on top of the filling :) #antiepal :P

Pupupie's Smile :)

our homemade Oreo blue berry cheese cake :)

------ Im planning to make a baked cheese cake so SOON for pupupie,teddy may heart and enrico  next time:) -----

Iron Man 3 and sweet cravings at Swensens

better late than never :) we watched iron man on its 2nd week :P again, the comics story of iron man is quite different to the movie and there's a plot hole:P that's what enrico told me :P hehehe...still, it was okay with me. he  has some Marvel comic apps in his cellphone so obviously he already catch up with the comic story :P.  Robert Downey Jr's was so admirable in his super hero and comedian role. We earned plenty of laughs and rendered speechless due to stunning action scenes.the movie is a perfect blend of drama, action and comedy :) I love how tony shows his sensitive part to pepper, that she is her number 1 priority :P the scene where Stark's house being destroyed by missiles sent by the Mandarin then he command his iron suit to gear up pepper instead of himself :) it was a heart wrenching moment for me >_< 

 we waited for the post credit scene, only to found out that its just kinda so so, maybe im expecting too much because it was not  a hinting at another movie like any other marvel movies (even though the story is way back 1999) :p I'll just wait for the Avengers 2 :P

  >_<    then we headed to Swensens icecream shop  :) the place is cozy and bubbly in our eyes.

I had a hard time choosing my order as I wanted to savor all of the flavors they offer. I heard that all ingredients of their sundaes were imported to our country thus all of their sundaes taste great.
so of course I took a picture of my ordered icecream before digging in :P I admired this cute "litle princess ice cream" the presentation is cutee coz Im a kid at heart:) and i love it :)
 The staff are very attentive and fast despite that they have many customers.  

 Their staff will provide you a swensen's trademark refillable glass of water while wating for your ordered ice cream :)

100%  of the menu here basicaly consists of two things:  ice cream and shakes,  But varieties of classic and unique flavors!  

teddy may heart couldnt get over with his little prince ice cream :P  it has an oreo cookie stick with real whipped cream and cherry on top, the strawberry cheese cake ice cream scoop tastes authentic as it's the most creamy and freshest fruit flavor we have ever tasted. each lick is so intense that you dont want it to end :P sweet and sour blend so perfect for my taste buds :Pthe presentation of our ordered ice cream are fantastic as they were served up in a beautiful clear parfait glasses.  the prices are not cheap but you get the top notch quality and Good thing I have an excellent control for sweets, otherwise I would have a stockpile of this stuff in my fridge :P
definetely we are coming back for more,I will have to take more time in seeing what other flavors I am keen to!  I wish Swensens open their branch here in pampanga :)
