Chicken Sinigang sa Miso (Chicken in Tamarind Broth with Miso)

After so many months I’m posting for KCC again, welcome back, me! :D. ¬†The theme for the month of July is: Sinigang- my favorite!! Sinigang is a Filipino dish of tamarind-based soup of meat ( or seafood) and veggies. It’s sour and delicious, really delicious, I can’t describe it, you just have to make it […]

Sans Rival (For KCC – April 2011)

Finally, I have a reason to make this sinfully rich cake. Kulinarya Cooking Club’s theme/challenge for this month is all about decadence. What makes this cake so rich is the Mousseline buttercream, it has a total of 6 egg yolks in it and a cup of butter..yeah, it’s that rich. That’s why I cheated a […]

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 […]

Fish Fillet in Hot and Spicy Coconut Sauce

One of my favorite way to cook fish fillet because it’s easy, quick and spicy-delicious! I make the consistency of the sauce slightly thick and creamy that it coats the fish just like a gravy . We like to pour the sauce on the rice too…yum! ūüôā This goes well with short grain rice, the […]

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. I’ve been meaning to try this but deboning a whole chicken is very intimidating for me.¬†With relleno being this month’s KCC theme¬†would have been […]

KCC: Suman sa Lihia

This month’s Kulinarya theme is Suman.¬† Suman is¬†one of Filipino native delicacies; it’s made of sticky rice¬†(also cassava) wrapped in banana or coconut leaves¬†and boiled.¬†¬†There are¬†¬†different kinds of suman;¬†the ones I’m familiar with are suman sa lihia, suman sa ibos ( glutinous rice¬†wrapped in young coconut leaves)¬†and suman sa latik – my favorite of all […]

KCC: Filipino-Spanish Dishes: Pork Estofada

KCC‘s theme for the month of September 2010 is: Filipino-Spanish Dishes!!¬† Filipino cuisine is heavily influenced by Spanish, not surprising since they stayed in our country for over¬†300 years. 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 […]

Lumpiang Ubod (Coconut Pith Spring Roll)

This is part two of my post for KCC this month.¬† Fresh Lumpiang Ubod brings back memories of my childhood, my aunts and Goldilocks, the bakeshop/diner that is. We used walk there in the summer afternoons for snack, it’s close to where my aunts used to live. This is what the grown-ups usually order while […]

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 […]

Kulinarya Cooking Club: Ginataan

I’m so happy with this month’s KCC theme because coconut milk is my favorite! ūüôā¬† I have posted many of my favorite gata (coconut milk) recipes¬†already but there are¬†so much more that I haven’t shared yet like this recipe: Ginataang Halo-Halo or Ginataang¬†Bilo-Bilo,¬†it’s¬† my mom’s favorite and she used to cook it often especially on […]

Kulinarya Cooking Club: Barbecue

Kulinarya Cooking Club‘s theme for the month of June is: BBQ! Who doesn’t love barbecue?¬† There are so many kinds of barbecue but for me, there’s only one that brings so much memories and is my favorite of all: pork barbecue in bamboo skewers, it’s the best! I remember those nights when I was a […]
