The #BIGatin that is - Jollibee Big Burger Steak

When we still had a land phone, lazy days would sometimes mean calling the Jollibee Hotline to order lunch or dinner. Having our land phone cut two years ago meant no more Jollibee Delivery, but when my sister discovered the joys of ordering online, a thought entered her mind to try out the Jollibee Online Delivery service.

I allowed her to use the website - - and she said ordering through the website was easy than she first assumed. She did provide her phone number, but the confirmation of her order was sent thru the e-mail address she provided.

We were actually very impressed with the service! It took sometime for the confirmation e-mail to arrive, but upon receiving their e-mail, the delivery guy was knocking on our gate just 15 minutes after!

If you haven't tried ordering thru Jollibee Online Delivery service, the only tip I can share is for you to provide all necessary details. There is a space for the customer to indicate any notes, so utilize it to say everything you needed to say. When we ordered, we indicated our mother's Senior Citizen's ID Number and the amount of money we will pay, so the branch that will dispatch the order can adjust the amount (if you have SC or Disability ID) to be paid, as well as provide the rider with the exact amount of change.

I love Jollibee Chickenjoy, but ever since I had my wisdom tooth extracted nearly a month ago, I find it difficult to chew hard, crunchy food. Thankfully, there is the Jollibee Burger Steak, that is also one of my favorite Jollibee food.

One piece Jollibee Burger Steak is definitely not enough to satisfy my tummy, so I usually go for the two piece Jollibee Burger Steak, but I don't know what's the thing about numbers - if I go for two-piece it would seem as if I eat a lot! Hahahaha! I was happy when Jollibee offered the heavy meal because it can fully satisfy my burger steak cravings, but the thing is, I find the meal a little overwhelming - with the French Fries and Egg included in the meal. With the Jollibee Big Burger Steak, I felt it was just the right meal for me.

The Jollibee Big Burger Steak is as big and thick as the Jollibee Champ patty. The flavor is still the same Jollibee Burger Steak we all love - and something you can share... but I doubt that. :) For more pleasurable eating experience, I suggest you put drops of hot sauce. Yummy!!!

If you fancy something BIGatin without any added extras on the side, I definitely recommend you guys try out the Jollibee Big Burger Steak the next time you visit Jollibee, or call 8-7000 for delivery (if you don't feel like using their online delivery service.

The Jollibee Big Burger Steak can be enjoyed solo for only 89 pesos, or with a regular drink for only 95 pesos.

Recipe | Lemon Puffy Cookies

I find baking cakes intimidating, so I usually go for cupcakes and other pastries. Lately, I am on a cookie craze, and one of the first cookie recipes I tried was the Lemon Puffy Cookies, which I first watched thru Kawaiisweetworld's page on YouTube.

Quite easy to make, right?

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp lemon zest (zest of about 2 lemons)
  • 4 T. lemon juice (about 1 1/2 lemons)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar to roll cookies before baking

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Cream together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy in large bowl
  • Add in vanilla, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice and mix until combined.
  • Mix in salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour until just combined.
  • Roll heaping tablespoons of dough in powdered sugar until coated. Place on parchment paper/Silpat lined baking sheet 3 inches apart and bake for 9-11 minutes.
  • Cool on wire rack before serving.

color match! dig in!

As what was said on the video tutorial, one can easily half the ingredients, so that was what I did, after all, this was just the first time for me to try the recipe. Our oven is small, so I was only able to make about 12 cookies per batch, using a tablespoon to scoop out cookie dough so the cookies will be uniform. The very first batch was the most pleasant looking as they are pale yellow in color. The second batch had a little brownish color on the outer part of the cookies.

The way I see it, if you wanna try to bake this, take out the cookies as soon as the time is up because the longer you leave the cookies inside, the more tough they will become. The brownish / toasty part will also contribute a different taste, so it is best to take the cookies out while they were still pale yellow in color and let the residual heat cook them thoroughly.

I love the taste of these cookies! It reminded me of the Lemon Revel Bars my sister baked before, sans the lemon curd. It was like eating soft yet chewy pie crust with a subtle hint of lemon. It was tarty, but not so much... it was sweet, but not so much either.  I will definitely bake this again.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
