Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

This is another version of cooking pork with shrimp paste stew (Binagoongang Baboy). This version has gata (coconut milk or coconut cream) and cooked without pre-boiling the pork first. I like this one better because I love anything cooked with coconut milk. For those who are unfamiliar with this dish (a lot of non-Filipinos are, […]

Chicken in Coconut Milk (Chicken Tinola with Gata)

I’m not sure what’s the name of this dish. So I just gave it a name. 🙂 I bought this unknown dish from one of the stalls in a food fair in a mall.  I haven’t had this dish before but it has gata (coconut milk) and  I can see some of the yummy coconut and […]

Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

Three-Cheese Pasta with Bacon

One of my favorite pasta dishes to make. Easy, delicious. Rich in calcium and protein and some fats perfect for growing kids and cheese-loving adults.  My family loves it. I sometimes substitute yogurt in place of cream if I’m feeling extra health-conscious 🙂 This is with bacon, folks..bacon! And lots of cheese..hmmm Why are you […]

Tonkatsu (Japanese Breaded Pork)

Make it fun. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It will be what it will be – I’m loving this quote that I picked up from Gwyneth Patrow’s cook book.   It’s exactly how I feel about cooking, I just could not articulate it…it applies to my life as well. 🙂 Here’s an easy and […]

Breaded Pork Steak with Red Wine Gravy

This is favorite way of cooking pork steak, I used to like to grill it but coating the steak with seasoned flour and pan-frying it, is so much more delicious for me especially when served with red wine gravy…yum! Some salad greens or sauteed bok choy or cabbage is what I usually serve on the […]

Banana Coconut Black & White Choco Chips Muffins

Muffins are always a hit with my family…warm, fresh from the oven muffins. It’s one of my favorite thing to bake because it’s quick and easy to make (I hope you don’t get tired of hearing that from me). I have some bananas that are past their ripeness which is the best for baking (I […]

Good Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

In spite of how it looks,  this apple pie is on top of my family’s favorite desserts. I know this recipe by heart, it’s the one and only apple pie recipe that I’ve been using for almost a couple of years now every week since I’ve found it. I’ve been wanting to share this for […]
