Chicken Adobo in Coconut Milk ( Adobong Manok sa Gata)

Another delicious way to cook adobo: with coconut milk and some chillies! Chicken cooks faster than pork so this is perfect when you’re craving for adobo but wants to put food at the dinner table fast. Adobo seeasoning is soy sauce, vinegar, garlic (lots of it), peppercorns and bay leaf. You can “adobo” anything really […]

Spicy Chicken Adobo

My little boy calls this KFC Adobo because it’s made with chicken, to him, chicken=KFC and he likes `dobo, that’s how he calls adobo. He couldn’t wait for me to finish cooking, he keeps coming back to the kitchen asking “..is that kfc dobo?” ; “Is it cooked already?”, or “are you done mommy?” and […]

Pork Adobo

For the life of me I couldn’t replicate my mother’s adobo. It amazes me how she can cook the same adobo without measuring anything. I’ve been cooking adobo the same way she does but gets different result everytime, sometimes it’s good, other times blah. My family doesn’t get excited over my adobo because it’s so […]

Grilled pesto-stuffed portobello Mushroom

Grilled pesto-stuffed portobello Mushroom

Once in awhile I like to serve my family something different from our usual rice and meat dishes to keep meal time exciting. Okay, that’s partly true.  I do this sometimes when I want to put my family on a “diet” (mainly my husband who likes to stuff himself with rice like he’s still in […]

Boiled Pork

Boiled Pork

Lechon Paksiw

Lechon Paksiw

Paksiw is a dish cooked in vinegar and Lechon is a whole pig slow-roasted (with frequent basting) in a bamboo skewer over charcoal for several hours – the result is  succulent, tender meat and crispy skin–really mouthwatering-delicious! Oh my, I’m drooling!! 😛 Lechon is a staple on special occasions and during Holiday season; this dish, […]

Fish Fillet with Tausi (Fermented Black Beans)

I used to hate this dish when I was young, I didn’t like the taste of fermented black beans and the milk fish has too many fine bones that makes it difficult to eat.  My mother, she used to make it regularly- no matter how much complaining/whining I did- hoping that I will eventually like […]

Easy Chicken Teriyaki

Just like adobo this classic Japanese dish is so easy to prepare and always satisfy any hungry tummy. This is one of my favorite dishes to cook when in a hurry to put food on the table. I like to pair this with sauteed cabbage with turmeric and lots of rice, steamy hot rice!! mmmm..mmm […]

Rhum Chicken

I love easy recipes, whenever I see one, I save it and try it as soon as I possibly can and if it’s really good, I make it again and again and when I’m really happy about it, I can’t help but share it too :). Like this dish, I saw this on Ju’s blog, […]
