Kicking Off Birthday Week

Today we have a special post on behalf of a very talented food blogger, Raymund, at Ang Sarap. We were so excited and honored when Raymund asked us to write a guest post. I’ve often told Raymund that Mr. N, who as you know has a serious passion for Asian food, would love to eat dinner with his family every night. 

We’ve made several of Raymund’s recipes (and drooled over many others) and each one has been a huge hit. In fact several are on Mr. N’s “favorites” list, including Raymund’s sticky garlic chicken which Mr. N requested I make for dinner every day.

So in keeping with our blog’s theme, we wanted to choose a recipe for Ang Sarap that reflected the American culture. 

While there are many options from which to choose, we also knew that someone’s birthday just happened to be tomorrow. Now since birthdays are a special occasion marked with numerous celebrations in our house, we wanted to share one of our favorite homemade desserts – an American pie. 

Again, there are many pies from which to choose, but it being summer and knowing Raymund’s love for interesting ingredients and strong flavor combinations we chose the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.  

To check out the recipe and read our post, make sure to swing by Ang Sarap. And don’t forget to wish Raymund a happy birthday!!

We’ll be back over the weekend with another birthday post. This time for a little someone special that just turned four!

    Happy birthday Raymund – and what a delicious pie… I’ll have to head over and check out the guest post. I love rhubarb and strawberry together… it’s just a match made in heaven isn’t it – I had no idea it was such a popular pie filling in the US either.

    Love the family pic 🙂

    Happy Birthday Miss A – 4 is a WONDERFUL year!! We called it “Fabulous Four” – after the 2s and 3s, there was nothing better, except 5 :0.

    Great job on the guest post! Your pie looks perfect, almost as perfect as the smile on Little Princess Who is Turning Four This Week

    Happy Birhday, and happy celebrations, can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with…

    A yummy birthday pie for Raymund. Happy Birthday, Raymund and many more.

    And happy birthday to the little Miss A. You’re becoming a lovely young lady with a smile that lights up all the pictures you’re in. 🙂

    What a lovely thing to do, Kristy. It was my birthday yesterday and it was very nice. We had an amazing dinner where we gave a secret ingredient to the chef and they were to prepare each of the five courses using that ingredient…I’m blogging about it later this week. Happy Birthday to Miss A. Hope she has a great week.

    Gosh Kristy, your pie looks picture perfect! I would LOVE a slice for breakfast and a big cup of coffee right now ( it’s 6:00 am here). I can only imagine the fun you have planned for Miss A. I will stay posted. Take care!
