I’m Joleen, the blogger/taste-tester/amateur baker/home chef/photographer/adventurer behind Joleen Cuisine.
That’s me enjoying my Halo-halo at a mall in the Philippines! YUM.
Here you’ll find a collection of delicious home-cooked meals, healthy recipes, indulgent treats, food reviews, places I’ve travelled to and more.
A little bit about my kitchen skills…my first time ever baking was probably back in the first grade with my best friend, and what were supposed to be chocolate chip cookies turned out to be…well, black, burnt blobs. I think we even set off the fire alarm quite a few other times, once when we were in fifth grade baking beignets together and didn’t know any better about water mixing with hot oil. But that’s another story.
Since then, I’d like to think my cooking and baking has come a long way- through baking countless banana breads and zucchini breads for my family and co-workers, making many successful dishes and sweets with my BFF/baking partner to redeem ourselves for the times that weren’t so successful (see above), cooking traditional Asian dishes with my dad, spending many hours making dumplings by hand with my mom and sister, to making endless amounts of guacamole and desserts with my college roommates.
I created this blog as a place to document and share all the things I love and am passionate about: food, photography, travel, and other musings about life, whether it be about crazy adventures, meaningful moments, and the people in my life whom I absolutely treasure and love.
Welcome to my sweet, cozy space and hope you enjoy your time here!
