On Masterchef, Tweets and Lamb Spring Rolls

I am sorry for not posting a new entry for over a week.  But I know you will understand when I tell you the reasons why. First, I sent my son to college last week. So imagine all the prep work and the emotions that went with it.  OMG, I couldn't write nor cook! LOL!  Second, we are in the midst of a change.  As if the separation anxiety I had with my son wasn't enough, there's a big CHANGE happening soon.   I think I am not ready to divulge that yet though... please allow me some time to let it sink in first...  and yes today is my birthday (technically since I was born in the Philippines), as a birthday treat I got the biggest thrill in my blogging career so far.  I am a guest blogger for one of the top finalists in this season's MasterChef's.

Have you watched an episode of the cooking challenge show on Fox called MasterChef?  Yes, I am a fan of the show.  When season 2 started, I became an instant fan of Alejandra Shrader. Her true character in the show stood out.  I love her kind aura, and she was not your usual pushy, abrasive, cooking show contestant on camera.  She was the sweetest, and very talented!

Please hop on to her blog and know the story behind how we  "met" in my guest post On Masterchef, Tweets and Lamb Spring Rolls.  I promise  you a great story and a great recipe so see you there!

  11. Happy, happy birthday, dear Malou! So much has been happening for you these past few weeks, but all for the best it seems (even though I'm sure you miss your son).

    Congratulations on your guest-blogging for Alejandra! Masterchef US season 2 just started to air here in Manila about a week ago so it's great to have someone specific to root for. As for your lamb-pia, well, what's not to love? Lamb is my husband's favorite red meat & fortunately, Australian lamb is readily available here. I'll have to give this one a try!

    Wishing you a wonderful special day!

  12. Happy b-day Malou. Going to chek out the link. The recipe and encounter sound incredible!

  13. What a wonderful twist on the classic lumpiang sariwa. I would have never thought of using lamb. I love lamb. Can't wait for the "big CHANGE" announcement. And most of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY my friend!!!

  14. What a wonderful twist on the classic Lumpiang Sariwa. I would have never thought of using lamb. In fact I just made a batch last weekend. I'll make a point to use your recipe next. Can't wait for your "big CHANGE" announcement. And most of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY my friend.
