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 […]

Zebra Cake (Steamed)

I found another steamed cake recipe that’s for keeps. It’s called Mah Lai Goh, a Malaysian version of steamed cake; it’s simple and delicious,  I like it especially because it’s not too sweet and it’s easy to make. The zebra stripes is just an option; I just got inspired when I was making this and I happen […]

Easy Chicken Curry In A Hurry

Pork and Chillies in Coconut Milk (Bicol Express)

My husband is crazy about hot and spicy food, and “trained” me to like it too. I remember my first time to eat chilli in pork sinigang, I was literally crying and sniffling, my nose just won’t quit dripping, but my husband kept encouraging me to go on, he said I’ll get used to it […]
