Hi my name is Jennifer
I love your website and recipes. I would love to make more of your recipes but there are some words that I cannot understand. I have to sometimes look at the picture and associate it with the word/ingredient to make it out. Could you please define the filipino words/ingredients to english? Thank you sooooo much!
