Blueberry Pear Crumble

Blueberry Pear Crumble

It was a Saturday night and I was already in bed when the craving for something sweet hit me. It happens to everyone, doesn’t it? I didn’t feel like ice cream or store-bought cookies, which was all we had, so I scrambled around the refrigerator and came across a cup of fresh blueberries that really needed to be eaten up.

Coconut Soup Dessert: Ginataan Halo-Halo

Whenever my family made this Filipino dessert, they just called it Guinataan and we all knew what was coming.
