About

Now,look at that..I almost gave up.Good thing my craving occurred once again and I was able to make a better outcome this time. I heard there are people like me who also failed several times in cooking Maja Blanca so they gave up. Sometimes its really crazy because no matter how simple the food and instructions how to do it..we still mess up. Well, this is the best so far! Wanna try?
