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 […]

Baked Apples and Onion Enchiladas

Baked Apples and Onion Enchiladas

Hello:) I’ve been gone from this blog for about a year and a half now and I feel so guilty for neglecting it (sorry, baby).  We had a house renovation which took longer than planned (construction woes which gave me so much STRESS and I’m only beginning to recover from it. I won’t talk about […]

Kimchi Rice

Kimchi Rice

Kimchi is a Korean side dish which is a fermented vegetable, commonly napa cabbage. It’s seasoned with lots of spices and aged to let the flavors marry really well for a delicious hot and spicy compliment to grilled or fried meat dishes.  I wish I could say that I enjoy eating kimchi by itself like […]

Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken)

Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken)

Chicken Karaage is a Japanese version of fried chicken. It is different from traditional fried chicken like KFC’s; it’s more like Bonchon’s in taste (which is Korean, btw) but without the sauce. The chicken  is marinated with ginger and sake and coated with potato starch (or cornstarch) before frying which gives a yummy crunch to […]

I first saw this lovely, scoop-able frozen dessert  from one of Jamie Oliver‘s shows, I can’t remember when but it seems ages ago.  Anyways, I thought..wow, you could practically make ice cream without an ice cream machine?!  Of course, I have to try it..took me forever to finally do it though (I’ve a looooooong list […]

Bomboloni (Italian Doughnuts)

Bomboloni (Italian Doughnuts)

Finally got to try making bomboloni!  Bomboloni are Italian filled doughnuts.  They are small and round (just like bombs, hence the name, according to wikipedia) and so light and delicious especially with chocolate that you may not notice that you’ve already eaten a lot. Don’t make too much if you don’t want that to happen- […]

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese Chicken Rice

This rice and chicken dish is very savory. It is similar to boiled chicken, well, it is actually boiled chicken but with accompanying rice cooked with the chicken stock from boiling the chicken. It is more delicious than it looks; I added some turmeric powder to give the rice a touch of color; it may […]

Gising-Gising

I usually throw away kangkong (water spinach) stalks after taking off the leaves but I found out that it can be turned into a delicious spicy dish with coconut milk which is a perfect pair to fried tilapia (imagine salty crispy skin and soft, flaky meat..yum!) or any fish or grilled meat. Gising-gising is unknown […]
