Baby Back Ribs

There are a lot of ways you can cook this “baby” (back ribs) and a lot of people have their own special marinade/ sauce but whatever the method: boiled, grilled, broiled, braised, I know one thing for sure that makes it sooo good: long and slow cooking. You have to be patient with this type […]

Chicken Cacciatore (My way, with Beer)

I can’t tell you how delicious this dish is, you have to make it yourself to find out ;). I love chicken cacciatore*, I love any tomato-based dish especially if it’s slow-cooked like this one.

Whole Wheat Banana Yogurt Pancakes

Doesn’t it look yummy?  I don’t usually get excited over pancakes, for me they are all the same and I don’t make pancakes as often because it makes me consume lots of butter and syrup ( they’re so good but it could give you bad stuff  in return like clogged arteries and diabetes ), but pancakes are nothing without them. […]

Maja Mais Panna Cotta

While I was making the maja blanca I thought how it is similar to panna cotta (Italian cooked cream), the ingredients and the process are pretty much the same except panna cotta uses gelatin powder and of course cream. I got inspired and thought of making a fuzion of kakanin and Italian dessert… maja mais […]
