Crispy Pork Belly Roast »

Crispy Pork Belly Roast

This is one of the reasons why I will not become vegetarian. That’s why I love  lechon, lechon kawali and bagnet. This crispy roasted pork belly is essentially the same but easier to make. No deep frying involve- I don’t like deep-frying not because of any health reasons, in fact, I love deep-fried food but [...]

Vanilla and Chocolate Marble Cake with Walnuts

My husband and I took a nap late in the afternoon and woke up at half past nine at night,  I was so disoriented and I realized in horror that I overslept and haven’t fed my kids their dinner!! I hurriedly made something for them to eat and sent them to bed feeling guilty as [...]

Poqui-Poqui (Sauteed grilled eggplant with eggs)

My husband came home one day and told me he had eaten a dish with a naughty-sounding name -Poqui-poqui (which sounds like the intimate part of a woman in Tagalog),  and that he’s gonna bring us to that restaurant so we could try it too as well as the other delicious food  there. As it [...]

Bacon basil and chili pepper Pasta »

Bacon basil and chili pepper Pasta

This is actually a variation from my favorite pasta aglio e olio- which my family thinks is kind of bland. Well, I told them, especially to the husband and the little one that – it’s because aglio e olio is the equivalent of garlic rice, it means, we pair this with meat or chicken or [...]

Sinigang na Ulo ng Salmon sa Miso ( Salmon Head in Miso Tamarind Broth) »

Sinigang na Ulo ng Salmon sa Miso ( Salmon Head in Miso Tamarind Broth)

This is perfect to have for lunch or dinner on cold days.  The tamarind-miso broth is very comforting and hits the spot everytime. I don’t really like cooking fish in tamarind broth or even shrimp, because I can’t make them taste as good and satisfying as my favorite pork sinigang or even beef sinigang, I feel [...]

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies »

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love anything chocolate, and chocolate chip chunk cookies…I absolutely love ‘em. I just hate that I can’t stop eating  once I start-they are so addictive!! The trick I learned is to bake a small batch- for us, that’s about a dozen, three cookies for each of us; so when it’s’s gone!! Ha! If [...]

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 [...]

Blueberry Yogurt Corn Muffins »

Blueberry Yogurt Corn Muffins

This is one of the healthiest things I’ve ever tried baking. It has greek  yogurt, cornmeal, blueberries, wholewheat flour and..well, some sugar- for happiness, you know. ü  To be honest, I didn’t like them, I had a hard time finishing one muffin; fortunately though, my family liked it especially my daughter whom I made these [...]

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken »

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

I found this recipe from here.  I got there looking for other recipe but ended up trying this delicious looking sweet and sour chicken. It’s a bit different from the way usual sweet and sour dishes are cooked, this one is  pre-cooked by pan-frying then, baked. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a [...]
