I began this Filipino.inspired.dishes quest this past week, to share my Love.Letter.Photos with my Mom. Living far away from home is always a bitter and sweet experience. So, I began to express myself through the mindfulness ritual of food. Here's my Mother's Day food series. I love you Mom and big love to all the moms, aunts/titas, grandmothers/lolas/naaniis out there. We love you and thank you for always teaching us these important lessons of cooking food to heal, share, and love.
