Filipinos love food, period. That's a fact! Apart from their warm smiles and great hospitality, Filipinos value family, thus family-oriented gatherings and reunions are just but the usual household occurrence. With these occasions come Lola's (grandmother's) homemade recipes, made with love, to delight every member of the family, no wonder Lola's hold such an inspiration to our young ones. With it are these culinary creations by our Lolas that each Filipino hold so close to their hearts.
