Leche Flan

So I finally tried making the Filipino dessert Leche Flan. I bought the "lanyera" which is the mold we use to cook the leche flan in from the Philippines when I went on vacation for the holidays. The recipe wasn't so complicated until I started making the caramelized sugar. Tell me why I was waiting for it to caramelize for hours! I don't know what I was doing wrong, but it wouldn't turn dark brown on me. It just got hard! I ever tried making it twice thinking I turned up the heat too high. Anyway, I cooked it without the sugar turning brown. To my surprise the leche flan itself came out so yummy! I really need to learn how to caramelize the sugar. Someone help me! Lol :) I got the ingredients from a link, Didn't really copy the directions, just the ingredients. I used a pan to try and caramelize the sugar and I cooked the leche flan in my electric steamer. Here is a picture of how it turned out.

I will make sure to perfect this sooner or later. Wish me luck! :)

Peach & Gold

Since it's been a fad that ladies have been polishing their ring finger a different color from the rest of their nails, I thought I'd try it out too. The one that I have been seeing a lot of is the use of bright colors and then one glitter nail. In this process, I also learned a tutorial for a DIY glitter nails. Here is the link of the tutorial if you're interested: I decided to use bright peach and gold glitters by Martha Stewart. Make sure when you do glitter nails, to use the small glitters and not the big ones. They stick better. Here is the picture of my nails.

I'm Back - Welcome 2013!

So I've been gone for awhile.. for some reason I just couldn't find the time to blog. Anyway, It's a new year and I told myself to keep blogging. I'm thinking of doing something different and just start blogging my every day experiences and thoughts with you guys! There are so much things I want to share so I figured "why not here?" My cousin actually gave me the idea because I share a few of my hobbies on Facebook and she thought having a blog would be nice. So here it is.. the new blog! Hope you guys will enjoy it! Thanks!
