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 [...]

Semifreddo (Italian Semi-Frozen Dessert)

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)

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 »

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 [...]

Kung Pao Chicken »

Kung Pao Chicken

Another classic Chinese dish that I wanted to try for the longest time. I don’t know what kept me from trying this sooner-it was so simple to make, really. Just like the General Tso’s chicken this is the first time that I’ve tried this dish, I don’t remember ever seeing this on the menu of [...]

Chinese-Style Spareribs

I found this recipe from my old Turbo Broiler’s instruction manual and cookbook. I didn’t know that I still have this and was surprised to find it while cleaning out one of my cabinets. It’s about time I give at least one of the recipes a try and this spareribs appealed to me. It was [...]

Churros con Chocolate »

Churros con Chocolate

Churros are piped choux pastry- deep-fried to a golden brown, peppered with cinnamon sugar and dipped into luscious chocolate sauce…so, so yummy! Have you tried making churros at home? This is my first time and I must say, I’m quite surprise at how easy it was to make and way more delicious than what I’ve [...]

General Tso’s Chicken »

General Tso’s Chicken

This is a very popular Chinese dish but I have never tasted it until I tried to cook it at home.   I have eaten in many Chinese restos here but I have never seen this on any menus or maybe I just didn’t browse long enough to find it. Anyways, it is delicious as [...]
