Grilled Pinakbet

Grilled Pinakbet

Grilling the vegetables prior to cooking adds a delicious smokey flavor to this classic Filipino dish. Pinakbet is a vegetable dish sauteed with shrimp paste, with or without meat and shrimp.  Squash, bitter gourd (ampalaya), okra, string beans (sitaw) and eggplant are the mainstays of this dish, it’s okay not to use all of them.

DALGONA Coffee (Whipped Coffee)

DALGONA Coffee (Whipped Coffee)

If you’re bored of your usual cappuccino, why not reverse it. Froth the coffee and top your cold or hot milk with it:) My daughter introduced me to this coffee craze. She asked if we can make whipped coffee like the ones posted on IG. I was skeptical at first, I didn’t think that coffee […]

Flourless Almond Cake

This is an easy cake to make. You need only a few ingredients. It’s gluten-free, it’s not too sweet and doesn’t need any frosting or icing. You won’t feel guilty eating this cake because it’s  high in protein and good fat from almonds with just the right touch of sweetness! Make it already and take […]

Baked Mac Pesto

Baked Mac Pesto

Because green is in!  Pesto adds not only color to this classic dish but a lot of nutrition too.  You may use store-bought pesto but it’s more economical to make it at home especially if it’s going to be used  for this casserole. You just put about 3 cups of basil leaves, lots of garlic, […]

Sauteed Chayote (Ginisang Sayote)

Sauteed Chayote (Ginisang Sayote)

This is one of those dishes that doesn’t look appetizing but give it a chance, taste it and you will like it. I promise.  It’s one of my favorite meat and veggie dishes. Chayote or Sayote in Filipino (tagalog) is an odd looking vegetable, shape like a distorted pear. My mom taught me how to […]

EGG SALAD

EGG SALAD

This is my version of the classic egg salad. I find it strange that I like egg salad because I don’t like mayonnaise. I turn my nose up to anything with mayonnaise–including my mom’s specialty, macaroni salad. I know it annoys her so that I wouldn’t have any. I’ve had a taste of it, of […]

Creamy Coconut Mushroom Soup (Keto-Friendly)

Creamy Coconut Mushroom Soup (Keto-Friendly)

Enjoy this creamy soup as is (perfect for those on Keto Diet) or with crusty bread for a healthy light meal but I like it better as “gravy” for pork chops/steaks served with steamed rice.

Coffee Ice Cream with Cacao Nibs (No-Churn)

Coffee Ice Cream with Cacao Nibs (No-Churn)

My favorite flavor:) Ground cacao nibs adds texture and deep cocoa flavor, it really complements the  intense coffee taste of the ice cream. I don’t recommend it for kids, let’s not start them early on coffee. 😀 I didn’t let my 13-year old son have any of this because this is so good, he might […]
