Invisible Apple Cake (Gateau Invisible)

Invisible Apple Cake (Gateau Invisible)

This cake had my attention because of its name. Invisible Apple Cake.. I wonder how it would taste like and my first thought was it’s called invisible cake because it’s so good that it disappears in the blink of an eye as soon as it’s served. 😀 I had to find out so I made […]

Pineapple Pork Ribs

Pineapple Pork Ribs

A little bit sweet with a hint of sourness from the pineapple make this stew a winner in my book.  Let it cook until the liquid that’s left is a little sticky but still on the  runny side, perfect for saucing the rice.  YUM. I love this dish…one of my favorites.  I tend to eat […]

This is another version of cooking pork with shrimp paste stew (Binagoongang Baboy). This version has gata (coconut milk or coconut cream) and cooked without pre-boiling the pork first.
