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 […]

Grilled Chicken Thigh Fillet with Green Curry Sauce

Grilled Chicken Thigh Fillet with Green Curry Sauce

This is a combination of my two favorites–grilled chicken and coconut curry sauce. I came up with this dish after coming home hungry for curry. I had some chicken marinating in the fridge ready for grilling but found out I’m out of curry powder. I went ahead and grilled the chicken and thought of making […]

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

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. I like this one better because I love anything cooked with coconut milk. For those who are unfamiliar with this dish (a lot of non-Filipinos are, […]

Chicken in Coconut Milk (Chicken Tinola with Gata)

Chicken in Coconut Milk (Chicken Tinola with Gata)

I’m not sure what’s the name of this dish. So I just gave it a name. 🙂 I bought this unknown dish from one of the stalls in a food fair in a mall.  I haven’t had this dish before but it has gata (coconut milk) and  I can see some of the yummy coconut and […]

Tuyo in Olive Oil (Dried Herring Fillets in Olive Oil)

Tuyo in Olive Oil (Dried Herring Fillets in Olive Oil)

This is an upgrade for the humble tuyo that I, like most Filipinos love to eat for breakfast. It’s usually part of that silog meal  (sinangag +itlog) garlic fried rice and egg. We didn’t have bottled tuyo in olive oil when I was growing up. Thank you so much for whoever thought of bottling tuyo […]

Salted egg yolk Shrimp

Salted egg yolk Shrimp

I love salted egg, I think I may have mentioned it in one of my early posts that I like having it for my afternoon snack paired with ice-cold bottle of coke back in my college years- those carefree days of not having to worry about cholesterol; that time when I do not seem to […]

Pork Binagoongan (Pork in Shrimp Paste)

Pork Binagoongan (Pork in Shrimp Paste)

This is one of my favorite Filipino dishes. It’s very easy to make. Promise. My friend who doesn’t normally cook was able to make it and she nailed it the on her first try and now having this on repeat 🙂 I am not surprised though because this is really simple make and super yummy.  Forget about your diet of […]

Prawn Curry

Prawn Curry

Hello. I missed you my dear blog. I could tell you 13 reasons why I am sooooo slow in posting but that will not help anything. I tried to write it all down here actually, about to share to everyone who will read this about how  difficult it is for me to make an update, […]

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido means melted (or molten) cheese.  If you Google it, you will see that it is usually with chorizo (Spanish or Mexican sausage).  I decided to use  longganisa  (Filipino sausage) which I make regularly at home because it is my favorite 🙂 My version of homemade longganisa is loaded with garlic and it’s skinless […]

Fettuccine Carbonara

Fettuccine Carbonara

Super simple dish. Without bacon or any meat. Perfect for those who are abstaining from meat this Lenten season. This pasta dish only has 3 ingredients: eggs, cheese and the fettuccine.  My  kids loved it even without their beloved bacon.  🙂 Mix the eggs and the grated cheese in a bowl. You may use just […]

Shrimp & Chicken Yakisoba (Japanese Stir-fried Noodles)

Shrimp & Chicken Yakisoba (Japanese Stir-fried Noodles)

I like stir-fried noodles, they’re easy to make and delicious.  I can add in lots of veggies like cabbage or pechay  the kids don’t mind because they blend  well with the noodles. Yakisoba is much like pancit bihon and pancit canton, Filipino noodle dishes that also originated from China.   I’ve no idea how to make […]
