Sisig for KCC (February Theme: Aphrodisiac)

Sisig for KCC (February Theme: Aphrodisiac)

The February theme for KCC is aphrodisiac, very appropriate for this month of love ;). Food that are considered aphrodisiacs are either visually stimulating or contains nutrients that gives you stamina or so they say. Some foods that are known as aphrodisiacs are oysters, banana, strawberries, chocolates and chillies to name a few.. Whether aphrodisiacs […]

Canonigo (For KCC January Theme)

Canonigo (For KCC January Theme)

For this year’s first KCC theme we’re supposed to prepare or cook something that would answer this question: “What Filipino dish (savoury or sweet) would you like to have on your birthday?” Making ube chiffon cake came to my mind easily, I love that cake and I have never tried making it but (due to […]

Chicken Relleno Rolls

Chicken Relleno Rolls

I’m late, late..late!   The November theme for Kulinarya Cooking Club is Relleno. Relleno means stuffed; I’ve made rellenong bangus ( milkfish), rellenong talong (eggplant) before but I’ve never tried chicken relleno.

KCC: Filipino-Spanish Dishes: Pork Estofada

Most of these dishes are rich and satisfying and mouthwatering! I’ve made several in the past, most are everyday dishes and always, always eaten with rice..which is […]

Kulinarya Cooking Club: Lumpia!

Yay! It’s lumpia for KCC this month.    I love lumpia!  Lumpia is egg roll, fresh or fried. In my Filipino food vocabulary, this can only mean lumpiang sariwa/ubod ( fresh spring roll) or lumpiang shanghai ( deep-fried egg roll) —my favorite!  I have already blogged about lumpiang shanghai, about a year ago;  I was planning on […]
