The most wonderful time of the year: the holidays. This is the time of giving and sharing; a time to relax and be with our loved ones; a time to be thankful for all our blessings; and a time to indulge in delicious desserts without feeling the guilt.
The Holidays usually start from Christmas until the New Year. But for some, this starts a few weeks before Christmas and ends a few days after the New Year. Some of you might have had endless Christmas parties and family reunions overflowing with wine and food.
How was your Christmas like in your part of the world? I bet that there were plenty of good food and a lot of smiles and cheers. As for us, we missed white Christmas this year because we went to a warm place wherein we can enjoy nature and go fishing. It feels good to escape the cold weather once in a while.
Everyone commits mistakes. Who doesn’t? This shows that man is not perfect at all times. Instead of feeling bad on your mistakes, use them for motivation. Do the right thing by learning from your own mistakes and from the mistakes of others.
Mistakes are usually done by beginners. It takes constant repetition to master a task or process until the person becomes experienced. But, being experienced does not guarantee perfection – only lesser mistakes.
Cooking is a huge topic and there are lots of things (old and new) to learn about. When trying to learn how to cook, chances are that you will be doing many things wrong.

Pastillas de leche are sweet milk candies that are usually served for dessert. An authentic recipe will require the use of Carabao’s (water buffalo) milk and cooking is also necessary.
What we have here is a no-cook quick and easy dessert recipe intended to satisfy your cravings right away. Also, cooking or heating the ingredients is not necessary. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and voila, a sweet delicious milk candy that you can have for dessert in no time.
Like what I’ve mentioned, the best Pastillas are the ones that are made using Carabao’s milk. San Miguel, Bulacan and Laguna are the places where you can get the best and authentic Pastillas.
Since I can’t find any Carabao’s milk around (and using fresh cow’s milk will have a big difference in taste), I decided to feature a more quick and easier version. I understand that the taste of powdered milk is almost similar to fresh cow’s milk since they come from the same source. However, using powdered milk will save you time and effort since using fresh milk requires cooking.
Yema is a type of custard candy made from egg yolks and condensed milk. This is a common Filipino dessert and one of the easiest to make. The ingredients needed are readily available and this does not require a lot of cooking and preparation time.
There are several ways to present this dessert – the most common is the use of colored cellophane. The mixture is scooped and placed inside individually cut cellophane then manually molded until the shape becomes pyramid-like. Others roll the mixture until the shape becomes spherical and place them in a small paper cup or use some frill picks to go with it. Majority just eat it as it cools 🙂
